Fruit Punch from The NecessiTeas. . . .

Often, when I’m about to review a tea, I ask myself: what does this tea make me think of? What memory is associated with these flavors? But you guys– I couldn’t even do it with this one. The flavors of “fruit punch” are apparently so ingrained in my childhood that even with thoughts long and hard, I couldn’t pinpoint one specific memory, just a flood of tasting this exact fruity mix over and over again throughout the years. (And ending up with a cherry-red-stained mouth every time!) This oolong blend from The Necessiteas is impressive– even just by scent alone, Read More

Strawberry Cheesecake from The NecessiTeas. . . .

I love cheesecake. Before I moved in with my current boyfriend and had our daughter I actually lived right across from The Cheesecake Factory, and let me tell you I was there after work getting to-go cheesecake more often than i’ll ever admit!

Strawberry Shortcake from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

One of my absolute, all-time, favorite summer desserts is strawberry shortcake. I have really, really fond memories of strawberry shortcake from when I was a kid. My nana and papa would always have BBQ get-together at their house and my nana would buy biscuits from the grocery store and we would pile them with cool whip and fresh strawberries. It was so good, so cool, and fresh, and summery. When I think of a strawberry shortcake tea, I want it to be crisp and fresh tasting…and of course, strawberry! Upon opening my pre-packaged tin of Strawberry Shortcake by The NecessiTEA’s Read More

Marshmallow Krispy Treat from The NecessiTeas. . . .

I love anything marshmallow. Literally anything. Marshmallow scented candles, marshmallows out of the bag, marshmallow fluff sandwiches, toasting marshmallows in the toaster in my kitchen…if it involves marshmallow, i’m down! Anytime I see a marshmallow tea, I am sure to grab it. So, when I saw Marshmallow Krispy Treat black tea on The NecessiTEAs’ website, I immediately snagged myself a tin of it. I was very intrigued by the fact that there were actual pieces of that rice krispy popped cereal and actual mini freeze dried marshmallows. In smell, it reminded me a lot of Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel by Tea Read More
