Sencha Pina Colada from Souvia Tea. . .

I pulled this Sencha Pina Colada tea out of a traveling teabox and the sample had just enough to try a cold brew and a hot tea. The cold brew sat overnight in the fridge while the hot tea was steeped for two minutes in 175F water. The hot tea looks quite murky so I was surprised when the taste was rather crisp. The base is only slightly vegetal on the tail-end of the sip but in this case I think it compliments the overall tropical vibe, balancing the other ingredients. The coconut makes this smooth, though not lotiony, which Read More

Green Rainbow from Love Some Tea. . . . .

  Being summer time in the Midwest, cold brew tea is where it’s at.  I love drinking cold brew all day at work.  All I do is take my favorite water bottle, set it up the night before with a few scoops of tea, allow the tea to brew and viola, the next morning I have wonderful fresh cold brew tea to enjoy during the day.  The other day, I thought I’d try this dandy from Love Some Tea as my daily cold brew. Green Rainbow is a flavored passion fruit green tea that gives so much loving.  When you Read More

Once it cooled I gave it a try and it is very refreshing! Whenever I see mango or goji berries or citrus in a tea’s description I wonder if it is going to be Read More

Green Treasures from Gypsy Soul Tea

With having such a stressful work week, I grabbed this tea hoping it would be comforting and soothing. First thing I noticed was the amazing dry scent the leaves had. Tropical with a hint of strawberry. Brewed up and allowed to steep for about 4 minutes, this tea yielded a gorgeous brew that was a lovely golden color. I allowed the tea to cool for a few minutes and sat back, holding the cup, enjoying the moment. My first sip yielded a faintly flavored green tea that left me wanting another sip.  There was also a mouth drying factor as Read More
