Dirty Girl Scout from The Necessiteas. . . . .

Every January, as eggnog season ends, my mom panics and buys like 6 cartons of the stuff. Now this would be excessive for a household of eggnog drinkers and yet it is not for a family…it’s all for me. She presents them to me as if they are a gift which is really nice but then I realize I have like two weeks to finish them off or they’ll expire and be thrown out. So, it’s not the healthiest plan but January becomes the month of eggnog latte experiments This tea is my eggnog latte of the day. I love Read More

A Handblended Detox Tea for 2017! Let’s Detox from The NecessiTeas

Detox – also known as – Let’s Detox from The NecessiTeas is an interesting blend. The blended base is Honeybush and Rooibos. But it also has Lemon Myrtle, Lemon Peel, Star Anise, Ginger, Licorice Root, Juniper Berries, Lemongrass, Marigold, Stevia, Birch Leaves, and Willow Bark. My favorite part of this mix of ingredients is the ratios of ingredients which are all done nicely. Nothing is overdone. Everything blends well. The Lemon Myrtle, Peel, and Grass really shine but also play well with the Licorice which initially scared me but after sipping on this cuppa my fears were completely calmed. The Read More

French Toast Showdown. . . 52 Teas vs. The NecessiTeas

My mom has been on a french toast kick lately. Seriously, if a loaf of bread is still in the cupboard after a few days all we here is “you know, I could make a french toast casserole with this!” We are not sure what inspired this since she does not even eat french toast but here we are, up to our eyeballs in everything french toast. So as we compared how different breads altered the taste of the casserole she is now so found of making, I got to thinking about all the french toast teas I tried. With Read More
