China Bancha

China Bancha Organic from Herbie Organic

Today was a day that just called and yearned for a solid green tea. My stress levels seem to increasingly get higher and higher each day with the new added responsbilities of my new position.  Only a brilliant green tea could calm this ragged soul. So I grabbed the China Banch Organic sample that Herbie Organic graciously sent and I am so glad I did. This tea calmed the waters this afternoon for sure. Sourced from China, this green tea is described as having a light and gentle flavor with a mild character.  I would absolutely agree on the light Read More

White Jasmine from The Cozy Leaf. . . .

I received this as a sample simply labeled “White Jasmine.” I assumed it was a white tea scented with jasmine, but I looked it up on the company website. Good thing, too, because it is actually a blend of jasmine green tea, white tea, heather flowers, and rose petals – all organic, so that’s nice! While it carries a little of the scent of the flowers, it really does not taste anything like jasmine tea to me, white or green! Mostly I just taste green tea. It isn’t a bad tea and it’s great that it is a fully organic Read More

Strawberry Rush from The Love Tea Company. . . .

So a little while back a couple of us sisters received a gift from the wonderful CuppaGeek. Super Starling said she received hers for her general awesomeness so if I got one too, does that mean I am awesome as she is? That’s quite the accomplishment I think because she is one awesome lady. So that means that this gift was not only a great present that made sure to tell me I was loved, but also an ego boost. Plus, as part of the Tea It Forward program, this also helped support a good cause since $1 from each Read More

NaturaliTea #01: Hatsutsumi Handpicked Midori Shincha First Flush from Yunomi

Konnichi wa ocha no yūjin!  Or if that made no sense: Hello tea friends! Japan is a country that inspires me to the point of being in awe. The culture, the technology, the religions, their traditions, and especially their tea. I thought I had experienced everything a few years ago that had to do with tea, until I went into the world of Japanese tea. There is nothing like it! If you have never tried Japanese tea for yourself then I highly recommend trying it. Part of this reason is because Japanese tea contains umami which is the fifth taste which Read More

Green Caramel Tea from The Persimmon Tree

The caramel is center of attention here but the green tea flavor is noticeable in the background, too, and there is a little Rooibos sweetness coming thru but not very much but that’s ok because I wouldn’t change a thing about this Persimmon Tree Tea ffering!!
