Heavenly Hazelnut from BlendBee. . . .

“ A rich and decadent blend that will leave you euphoric!” Interesting. I’d like to be left euphoric!!! Today really isn’t the best day I don’t really feel great and i’m just really tired and kind of cranky. So, naturally, I will turn to tea to give me some relaxation and happiness. I am a stay at home mom to a beautiful and lovely 8 month old baby and it’s tough and really weighs down on you. But anyways, tea usually brings me some peace….especially Blendbee. Not only does Blendbee deliver great taste but the teas also have many added Read More

Red Suspenders is a blend of Vanilla Green, Orange, Mocha Nut Mate, with Chocolate Chips as an added accent flavor.  Right off the bat, this tea had a strong hazelnut chocolate flavor.  Not being a huge hazelnut fan or really a big chocolate guru, I Read More

Orange Creamsicle from BlendBee. . . .

Often, I’ll find myself looking lovingly at my tea cabinet (not unusual) and envision myself as a tea blender. In this very particular fantasy of mine, I’m set up in a perfectly crisp, clean and home-y bright white kitchen, sunlight flooding through the windows, a gentle breeze pushing in the open windows, and I’m hand-blending delicious teas while the birds outside chirp backup as I trill, Snow-White-ing-ly. I’m pretty sure this isn’t how actual tea blending happens. But this is my fantasy, so we’re gonna pretend it is. Luckily, there exist some incredible companies who offer this service to fulfill Read More
