Peep Crispies from A Quarter To Tea. . . .

I have one, very important rule about Easter candy: Peeps. Must. Be. Stale. Now. I understand that this is a very divisive stance. Statistically, about 50% of you right now are probably nodding in impassioned agreement, thinking “of COURSE! What other way is there to eat them?!” and the other 50% of you are probably sharpening your pitchforks and chanting “off with her head!” Okay. So maybe not *quite* that impassioned. But little did I know that there was even room for another rule in the world of Peeps: they should be brewed. As a tea. And sipped often. I Read More

summer sangria

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
