Taking The Day On With My Morning Blend from The NecessiTeas. . .

I drank three cups of this before I wrote this review because I read that there were chocolate/cocoa nibs in here — but I could never find them. I’ve never given up on locating Waldo, so I don’t know why I’d quit on this tea. But friends, despite the delicious chocolate smell in the dry leaf, I cannot pinpoint any chocolate flavoring in this tea. Which is not to say the tea is bad. It’s a lovely Assam-y bread-y malt-y mix. A dark blend of sultry Eastern European men telling fortunes and learning to box. Like, if the Winter Soldier Read More

Dessert tea lovers take note: this is right up your alley! #TheNecessiTeas

Dessert tea lovers take note: this is right up your alley! If you love sweet, creamy berry teas, this will be your… jam. (swish) This tea has crisp and malty notes with a huge butter/honey level over it that’s hyper-saturated with berries. I could, if I closed my eyes, genuinely see how this might be a berry-pancake situation. It. Is. Delicious. I haven’t had berry pancakes in years — probably since my husband and I bought our house. When I first moved into my house, our next door neighbors came over with a welcome-gift: a container of blueberries. We decided Read More

It is Macaroon Season: Try Coconut Almond Macaroon from the NecessiTeas

I feel like I’ve see a lot of macaroon-themed teas popping up this spring so it felt like time to try a tea I was saving in my collection, Coconut Almond Macaroon from the NecessiTeas. It’s a little known fact that I like coconut in my baked goods and sweets.  Almond Joy bars or Coconut Cluster Girl Scout cookies are the way to go!  And don’t even get me started on Hostess Sno-Balls… The dry leaf of this blend smelled strongly of almond, almost like amaretto liqueur or almond extract.  Almond was definitely the dominant tone, but there was some 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
