Brigita’s Daylight from Lauku Tea. . . November’s Sips by Box. .

Sips by is an amazing monthly tea box.  They curate teas for you based off of a profile you put together.  So there isn’t a fear of getting a ginger tea if you aren’t into ginger teas. What’s really cool about Sips by, is that they have collaborated with some amazing tea companies so each month you are presented with this wonderful variety of teas.  From Matcha to organic herbals, Sips by delivers fabulous teas each and every month.

Peach Black Blend from Zen Tea Bar. . . .

In my recent July tea box from Zen TeaBar, there were four main teas to enjoy.  One particular blend caught my eye instantly, Peach Black Blend, a blend from Zen TeaBar themselves.  So far from what I’ve experienced from Zen TeaBar, they cultivate a tea box for you, allowing you the chance to check out teas from companies you may have never heard of or just haven’t taken the plunge and made an order from. Peach Black Blend is a brilliant Sri Lankan black tea, dried fruit like papaya and peach, blackberry leaves, and calendula petals.  When I first opened Read More

Formosa Oolong from Simple Loose Leaf. . . . .

Most oolongs taste like either greens or blacks to me, but this one’s a perfect in-betweener. It’s got that lighter, vegetal green, but throws in a dash of that sexy deep note that I love about black.

If I were going to going to assign this tea an aura color, it would be a warm autumn purple. This is the sort of tea that I would sip while exploring an attic while wearing an oversized woolen sweater. Knowing my luck, that Read More
