Servings Per Container:
There are several reasons I was excited to try this tea from Village Tea Company! First…anything with SASSY in the name…I’m game! But more importantly ACAI. I have had many failures with Acai flavored teas. TOO MANY. This tea was very different! This is the Acai Flavored Tea I have been searching for!
Sassy Green Tea with Acai from Village Tea Company smells a bit like JUICY JUICE – at least that is what first came to mind when I initially sniffed it – or a fruity wine. When I sipped this I could still taste the sweet-green tea but pair it with fruity goodness – and there you have it! I can taste Acai, Orange, and Peach but can barely taste the ginger, chilies, and cloves which is completely fine with me. I think the reason for them – and the reason it works – is to make it so the fruit flavors are not over powering or bitter or too tarty. I think it also contributes to the lingering yet warming affect it has long after the sip is complete!
Another thing I would love to point out about Village Tea Company is…
Village Tea Company’s dedication extends beyond our teas to a commitment to preserve the beautiful world from which our tea originates. Our sustainability concept aims to minimize our carbon footprint to leave as little an impact on the environment as possible.
From floor to ceiling, the Village Tea Company aims to use recycled or reused materials for our furniture, fixtures, and decorations, with many items and materials coming from the local Dallas area. Even our tea cans are made from 100% recycled materials, and all of this is just the start of our promise to the environment.

Where to buy: Tea Forte’
Product Description From Tea Forte:
Our elegant porcelain tea cup ensemble is one of our signature service items. The custom cover keeps tea hot while revealing the leaf of our pyramid infuser. After steeping, remove the lid to enjoy a piping hot, aromatic cup of tea. Each cup is beautifully packaged in a handcrafted wooden box. The cup holds 8 oz.
I must say that I have about 10 Tea Cups that I use often and a few accessories but I am more into purchasing and obsessing about the actual tea than the tea accessories or other products. This Cafe Cup from Tea Forte’ is starting to change my mind about that.
Let’s start from the very beginning of my journey with this product…shall we…
I received it perfectly – and I mean PERFECTLY – packed in an attractive wooden box. Upon opening the box it was very carefully wrapped in matching green tissue paper. Everything was safe and sound. I started unwrapping the contents and first saw the cover and then saw the cup. Both are bone white in color and lightweight.
I’ve always been a “tomboy” and never very “Miss Prissy” but holding this cup and sipping my tea from it made me feel…well..dainty.
The Bone White color of the cup is perfect for those who are intrigued by the liquid color of the tea or for those reviewing tea like me. You can see the actual color very clearly.
The first time I sampled tea in this I did steep a Tea Forte’ pyramid bag in it…White Ginger Pear…as a matter of fact. I used the lid and stitched the trademark Tea Forte’ leafy string thru the top. It held the pyramid bag perfectly in place…even while transport from the “hot water location” to my desk.
Now…I’m not always the most graceful person and did notice that the tea sloshes around in the cup fairly easy. I’m not saying this is good, bad, or indifferent, it’s just something I noticed.
I was showing a friend of mine this little gem and he asked me if it came with a coaster. I thought to myself…self I thought…I bet I could use the lid as a coaster…and so I did!! I don’t think this has ever been recommended but I did it anyways and I will say that it worked out nicely.
I really like this Cafe Cup from Tea Forte’. I really had no idea I would have this much to say about it, but apparently I did.
If you ever come across one of these – check it out!
