Blueberry Matcha Green Tea from Simpson & Vail. . . . .

I’ve had my eye on Simpson & Vail’s Blueberry Matcha Green Tea for a while. Guess what? We finally got our hands on it! YAY! It was well worth the wait, too! Matcha, Blueberry Flavor, and Cane Sugar are the 3 ingredients in Blueberry Matcha Green Tea from Simpson & Vail. One of the most important things I need to mention in this review is that the use of the cane sugar is perfectly done. Many flavored matchas tend to over do it with the sugar or sweetener. Not Simpson & Vail! They used this cane sugar to accompany NOT Read More

passion fruit na pali blacck tea

Passion Fruit Na Pali from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company. . . . . .

My cousin, a sailor in the Navy, and I have one big thing in common. I can guarantee you it’s not our skill at feats of endurance and strength (hi, he’s a sailor and I’m a therapist), nor the nuclear-science minded brain (I have a master’s degree, but not THAT kind of master’s degree) or even our physical location (can you tell from my pale, pale Midwestern skin that I’ve never even stepped foot in his current state of residence, Hawaii?). Nope, my friends– it’s our love of tea. We only see each other once, maybe twice a year, but Read More

banananutbread

Banana Nut Bread from DAVIDsTea. . . . . .

I don’t usually gravitate towards banana flavored anything. I do, however, like banana nut bread and I also like chocolate covered frozen bananas. Banana flavor, though? Not so much. Alas, I was perusing DAVID’s website and decided to give it a try. I hoped that the banana wouldn’t be too sweet or artificial tasting and that the “nut” part would shine through because I absolutely adore anything and everything that is “nutty” (including people haha). Upon opening my tin I swear this was trail mix! If I put this in a baggie and handed it to you, you would most Read More

HiddenMeadow-337x418

Hidden Meadow from BlendBee. . . . .

Hidden Meadow from BlendBee caught my eye as I starred at my stash of tea under my work desk recently. I opened the bag and mentally transported into that Hidden Meadow this tea speaks of. This is a flavored green tea folks! And a great one at that! It contains China Green Tea, sweet Marshmallow Root, creamy Vanilla, and fresh spearmint! This flavor combo makes for a creamy, dreamy, minty-fresh, sweet treat! It’s creamy upfront followed by a welcomed sweet-mint flavor combo and the mint lingers nicely well after the sip is complete. This is a fantastic flavored green! I Read More

DeTox from Magic Tea Fit. . . . .

After a capital-D Decadent holiday season and a weeklong vacation recently, my body has been feeling CASHED. While I don’t buy into this whole detox tea trend, I do think that my body feels the difference between drinking another cup of peppermint-sugar-coated-chocolate-sugarplum-chocolate sugar tea (mmmm, the holidays) and an herbal blend with some anti-inflammatory herbs. This tea smells strongly of cinnamon and licorice and tastes the same. I can’t detect any of the red rooibos here, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a hint of hibiscus, a touch of ginger– really, this tea is kind of a mish-mash Read More
