Blueberry Green Iced Tea Powder from Stash Tea

When I first saw this I was intrigued. Just take the packet, dump it into a water bottle, and shake. A new and different way to make tea, perfect for lazy people. Then I started thinking and one question came to mind…”how does green tea powder differ from flavored matcha?” The answer I have determined is it doesn’t. This is just like a sweetened flavored matcha a la DAVIDsTEA. This is a mossy green color which screams vegetal and yet it is 100% sweet blueberry. Like blueberry pie filling. Sugary and good for dessert cravings. At first sip it was Read More

Tangerine Green from Prestogeorge. . . .

Ahhhh! Another TWO firsts for me! This is the first time I have tried this tea and the first time I have tried any teas from THIS company! Tangerine Green from Prestogeorge! Come to find out Prestogeorge is based in Pittsburgh which is just under 3 hours from where I live. WHY haven’t I known this before now? I will say that the aroma of this flavored green tea is VERY mellow. Barely-there, even! I was expecting something more potent. But it all worked out! I mean this is a nice flavored green tea eventho the aroma and the flavor Read More

Charge from Wild Leaf Active Teas. . . . .

Around 2pm is when I’m grabbing for something to keep me going for a few more hours.  This little ditty has been saving me from grabbing a sugary snack for the past week and I am completely in love with it. Wild Leaf Active Teas offers a line of teas with a healthy thought behind each tea.  I regularly drink their Slim tea in the mornings and adore that rich jammy earthy flavor.  I’ve found in the mornings that I do have more energy but I do drink a few servings of this tea before hitting the road in the Read More

Comparing Two Taiwanese Oolongs from #TeaAve and #Teavivre. . . . .

I’m going down the rabbit hole here with two Taiwanese oolongs, like Alishan Wonderland. The first time I visited a “Star-ba-ke” in China, I tried ordering a “tea with milk”. But they said it was too gross, several times, and they wouldn’t make it for me. I thought they had to be joking! They weren’t. My friend later told me I was insisting that “cheese” chai was a thing at American Starbucks. I could have died from the mix of embarrassment and jet lag. Not too far away from that, around 1200 meters up Ali mountain on a foggy island Read More

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
