Toasted Apple Green Tea by Bluebird Tea Co.

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Where to Buy:  Bluebird Tea Co. Tea Description: This blend of roasted green tea, popped rice and toasty apples is a bit of a tea Marmite.

Minnesota Blend from Verdant Tea

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Where to Buy:  Verdant Tea Tea Description: Our goal with this blend was to create something that was distinctly Minnesotan with additions like Minnesota Wild Rice and north woods juniper berries, while still feeling decadent and rich for a tea lover like Lady Gaga.  Vanilla bean and generous saffron make the brew rich, full and sweet without overwhelming and heavy-handed cloying artificial sweeteners.

Peaches & Cream Flavored Genmaicha from 52Teas

Banana Pudding Flavored Genmaicha from 52Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Where to Buy:  52Teas Tea Description: I know how much you loved our Banana Pudding black tea, so I decided maybe we should try it with a genmaicha, and let me tell you, the toasted rice element of the genmaicha combined with the sweet sencha green tea takes our banana pudding flavor recipe to a whole new level of yummmmmm. Like with the black tea version of Banana Pudding, we’ve added freeze-dried bananas, coconut and organic flavors.  I think this one is going to be very popular.  Can’t wait to hear what you guys think of Read More
