Stardust from Tea & Tins. . . . . .

This tea sparkles — both literally and figuratively. The loose leaf has these cute little silver orbs that dissolve fairly well in the steep process. The resulting mid-brown tea has a glimmer effect. Looking into the tea is, indeed, a little bit like looking into space. But, of course, a tea that’s all show and no go is a waste of glitter-balls. Luckily, this is a yummy vanilla-black with a little bit of extra spice thrown in. The vanilla plays center stage, and the hint of spices keeps the blend from going over-sweet.

Yunnan Imperial from Tea and Tins

Hello Tea Friends! Anyone who knows me is aware I adore Yunnan teas, that is why I jumped at the chance to review this one. I’m going to jump straight into the review so I c an get my ‘drink’ on. Opening the packet reveals dark brown leaves that are long and thin with quite a few golden tips among them. The leaves appear to be good quality ie no discolouration or holes, and they were 3/4 in length for the most part so pretty full leaf with a few broken parts here and there.They have a slight smoky wood Read More

Creme de la creme from Tea & Tins. . . .

The creaminess in this tea is much more prominent than other milk oolong I’ve had in the past. It smells on the verge of that artificial milk flavor, but I have hopes that it won’t taste that way! Once this tea has steeped, a fruitier, peachier note joins the creamy scent. I’m really looking forward to tasting this one now! Sipping.. I notice that this tea has a heavy mouthfeel despite there being no additions. I really like that it has a thickness as I feel that it contributes well to the creamy flavors. Besides the soft milky beginning, I Read More

Hot Mama from Tea and Tins- Take a Look, Sprinkles!!

I’ve never been called one “Hot Mama” before but I felt like one while sipping on Hot Mama by Tea & Tins. Okay…maybe that was a stretch but it made for a good review opening, right? There have been teas I have sipped on that provide that childhood memory of fireballs and Hot Mama from Tea & Tins is very reminiscent of those days and memories. It might not be exactly that hot but it could be put in the same conversation, I suppose. Even tho I didn’t find any cinnamon hearts in the loose leaf mixture that I infused Read More
