RYCBAR by Fandom Teas. . . .

I’m a Doctor Who fan and, even with the information that this is an “impossible girl” inspired tea, it still took me several seconds to figure out what the name of this blend meant. Maybe my brain was just really slow today? Hopefully you can figure it out faster. 😉 I steeped two teaspoons of this tea in ten ounces of 175-degree water for three minutes. While steeping, it starts smelling fruity right away. This is a flavored tea (raspberry-pomegranate flavored) and the tea liquid is much darker than an unflavored green tea would. That might be from the raspberry, Read More

Sunset in Seattle from Market Spice. . . . .

Wow! This tea is so cool tasting. It tastes like cream soda. Ingredients include rosehips, vanilla, chamomile, spearmint, raspberry, lemon grass, hyssop and herbs.

Raspberry Matcha from Tea’s Me

Matcha teas come in powdered form and can be used in milk for frothy lattes, in smoothies for a healthy boost, or whisked in a bowl for a traditional style.  Raspberry matcha from Tea’s Me Company is pre-sweetened Read More

Tranquility from Beleave Teas

Tranquility from Beleave Teas isn’t normally something I would grab off the shelf first but there is something about this herbal tisane that spoke to me.  After some rather long reflection and sipping I cam to the conclusion it was because of the vanilla dancing with both the peppermint and the spearmint that was what spoke to me the most. The chamomile was plentiful in this tisane but the mint and vanilla helped smooth it out and calm it down nicely.  The raspberry, papaya, and star anise played a subtle but appreciated part.  I noticed the wild cherry bark more Read More
