Jelly and Ice Cream from Teapigs. . . . .

I recently tried a cheeky box set of tea samples from Teapigs, and their packaging and labels were so cute and irresistible.  One flavor that wasn’t available in the box set was a blend made in honor of the Teapigs 10th anniversary in 2016.  It was meant as a limited edition blend, but it made such a hit that you can still place fresh orders for the blend today. Jelly and Ice Cream was such an unusual flavor name and profile, I just had to check it out.  This is an herbal blend, made with lots of fruit pieces and Read More

Upon receiving this pyramid tea bag (just the perfect blend of fancy and convenient) from Atman Tea Co, I was ready to test those taste buds. After a 2 minute brew at 160F, this pyramid really surprised me for a number Read More

Honeybush, Red Rooibos Vanilla, and Red Rooibos Chai Spice Tea Bags from Top Quali Tea. . . .

  Being the insane tea drinker I am, I want to love all of the amazing dessert honeybush and red rooibos blends that are out in the tea community.  It seems that banana flavored teas for the most part have red rooibos in them. Just makes me sad since I am not a huge fan of red rooibos and sometimes even stray away from honeybush.

Taster’s Review: I love teas with a convenience factor to them.  Prepping loose leaf tea is something I’m now used to and have worked that into my everyday.  But there are some days that I don’t have time to boil the water, steep the tea, and pour it into my travel mug.  Sometimes I just need to throw in some tea and go.  I don’t Read More
