Summer Sangria (Now Champagne Sangria) from The NecessiTeas

I’ve been saddened by so many teas claiming to mimic a favorite food, then failing. But not here! This tea is a WINNER! This blend, originally called “Summer Sangria” and now titled “Champagne Sangria,” is made of white tea, orange peel, blackberries, red cornflower petals, marigold petals, natural and organic flavors. I tried this tea chilled, and found it delightful. There’s something in here that really does taste like wine. This is 100% a sangria — minus the headache!* * Am I the only one here who takes one sip of wine, gets a headache, and falls fast asleep on Read More

Sugar Plum Tea from The Tea Can Company. . . . .

Sugar Plum Tea from The Tea Can Company smells AMAZING! Sugar and plums – folks! Sugar and plums! I could see a nice sized square chunk of fruit in the see-thru silken bag. Impressive! Ceylon Black Tea, Stevia Leaves, Dried Strawberry, Mango, and Hibiscus are the ingredients to Sugar Plum Tea from The Tea Can Company. I must have located the mango when I was looking! I didn’t see much of the hibiscus which was totally fine by me! As for the flavor once infused – I do have to say the Stevia was hepped-up! If you are sensitive to Read More

Strawberry White from Shantitea. . . . .

When I first opened my package of Strawberry White from Shantitea, the amazing scent of fresh strawberries was overwhelmingly mouthwatering. I loved the fresh, fruity scent!! The tea leaves were full and rich in color. After letting Strawberry White infuse, I poured my first cup and enjoyed the sweet scent and vibrant red shade of the tea. I love white tea, and especially when it’s fruity with a hint of floral, both scent and flavor wise. When I took my first sip, I noticed a tart and candy-like sweetness. I also notice an almost tobacco leaf like flavor, which is Read More

vanilla

Vanilla from Adagio Teas. . . . .

This tea reminds me of how cookie dough tastes before the chocolate chips get added. Sort of a brown sugar and vanilla flavor. Very cozy and warm and soft. If you’re going for a kick in the pants, this isn’t it. But if you want a nice morning cup that you could sip in between, say, crocheting booties for children, this would be just the thing. I have a variety of scenarios this would be right for: – Drinking while wearing toe socks on a glassed-in porch while it’s snowing – Handing to someone who just came in from skiing Read More

White Strawberrry

White Strawberry from CitizenTEA. . . Simply Strawberry!

I have had this tea a few times now and each time I readied myself to write a review. However, that never really panned out…until now. Unfortunately, seeing as I am on the last of the leaf, it seems there is not the usual balance of ingredients. This is actually most notable in the color of the tea which usually looks as if it has two layers: the more clear white tea on top with the purplish-pink liquid beneath. Today I am guessing my leaf lacked the hibiscus needed to give the purplish-pink hue and so it looks like mug Read More
