Organic Peppermint Cinnamon from Trader Joe’s. . . .

I’ve been feeling the need to cull my tea collection lately, friends. Now, before you gasp and exile me from Sororitea-Sisterhood, let me clarify. I have SO MUCH TEA. And frankly, lots of my “backlog” teas are ones that have sat there for a very, very, very long time. Rather than letting them languish, I’ve been packing them up (or tossing them out, if they’re really *that* old) and passing onto friends, and keeping my core collection full of teas that I really, really love. (this way, when new samples come in, I can happily sip a cup or two Read More

The Lucky Snitch from Riddle’s Tea Shoppe and Curiosities. . . .

Riddle’s Tea Shoppe and Curiosities is an awesome Etsy store that sells many fandom-inspired goods. There is a big focus on Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts and Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit inspired teas, post cards, buttons, and other trinkets, though she explores other fandoms as well. Each item displayed beautifully in the images on her site. In fact, that is how I found this company, through the beautiful images strewn throughout Instagram advertising her products. For weeks I tried to buy her many tea samples but each Wednesday when she restocked, everything sold out so fast that I was unable to Read More

Peppermint Leaves from Steven Smith Teamaker. . . .

I really love mint tea. Especially in the morning . Mint awakens my senses and makes me feel alive and awake with no caffeine. This morning I tried this Steven Smith Teamaker peppermint tea and wow I am not disappointed at all. It’s crisp, and smooth minty! It has a really deep mint flavor, it really sticks with you. I feel relaxed and energized. It’s definitely a tea to savor and enjoy. I’m having mine warm because it’s a blissfully cool morning, but I am imagining this as a super crisp, super refreshing iced tea on a hot day. Either Read More

Ooh Peppermint! – Harlow Tea Co.

When I received the Oo’ Peppermint Tea from Harlow Tea Co I first thought, “Oh man, this is going to be another one of those teas that extremely overpowered.” For any kind of peppermint tea the creator of said tea uses the oil from the peppermint plant and you can easily overpower any creation with just a tad over the amount of oil that was intended. But Harlow Tea didn’t depend on oil but instead the peppermint plant itself! Which, in fact, makes for a delightful flavor. But this tea is not just peppermint leaf, its base is actually oolong Read More

Trader Joe’s Peppermint Tea. . . .

I love peppermint tea. I love the way it both relaxes and uplifts me. I especially love having a cup when I’m having stuffy sinus issues. It just wakes me up, and makes me feel happy to start my day. I was at Trader Joe’s yesterday, and I decided to try their peppermint tea. You cannot beat the price. I paid $1.79 for a box containing twenty tea bags. They’re practically giving it away! I brewed myself a cup this morning, and knew I was going to love it as soon as the boiling water hit the tea bag. My Read More
