Casey’s .45 Gunpowder Blast from 52Teas. . .

  We review a lot of 52Teas here on The SororiTea Sisters but there is a good reason for that.  A good chunk of us are big fans of the blends that Anne and company creates and we just can’t get enough.  I personally have over 50 different blends from 52Teas in my own tea stash. There is just something so incredibly intimate with each of the blends that 52Teas creates.  Since each blend is hand blended with love and passion, you know you are in for a treat when you take your first sip of any 52Teas blends.

Orange Cardamom Pistachio Honeybush from 52Teas. . . . . .

I needed a special tea to go with Pad Thai Zoodles tonight. Zoodles are spiralized zucchini “noodles” used like you use pasta. There were carrots and sweet peppers, spring onions and chopped walnuts, along with potstickers and a lime soy sauce. Lots of flavor in the food means that some green teas would get lost as an accompaniment. In steps this delightful Honeybush. I think my daughter put it best when she said, “Mom, this tea is more complicated than a woman.” On top and up front we taste orange, with the cardamom warming the back of the sip. This Read More

Chocolate Banana Flavored Tea? We’re Listening. . . . #52Teas

There is definitely no mistaking that I don’t love banana- banana bread, banana tea, banana pancakes, banana smoothies. I just love bananas! I actually made chocolate covered bananas the other day. I dipped them in milk chocolate and covered them with crumbled graham crackers, crushed peanuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and shredded coconut. They were really really good. Sometimes I don’t always have the time to freeze, coat, and roll out chocolate covered bananas. Naturally, tea would be the next best option! You can always rely on 52 Teas for creativity and I know Anne (the mad tea artist at 52 Read More

Winter Cabin Chai from 52Teas. . . . .

Ahhhhh! A Black Tea/Honeybush Blend from 52 Teas? HECK YEAH – I’m excited! I’m excited for Winter Cabin Chai from 52 Tea for many reasons…one…because I was getting low on spicy black teas…two…because it’s a blended black tea and honeybush base…three…it’s a flavored chai…and four…it contains marshmallow root! The marshmallow root is GLORIOUS! It’s a natural, vegan ingredient that gives it the delicious marshmallow aroma and taste without the gelatin based junk food that you buy in stores! It’s spicy because of the traditional chai-like spices but it also has a sweetness to it, too! The vanilla provides a creamy-smooth Read More

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot – Hot Mama from Tea and Tins

Cinnamon comes in two common forms when it comes to tea.  There’s the natural, cinnamon-stick flavor, which is warm and spicy, and slightly floral, evoking the smell of baked-goods and breakfast. And then there’s the cinnamon candy flavor, which is hot, hot, hot like flaming Fireball candies or like red cinnamon chewing gum.  I like both kinds of cinnamon, natural and artificial, but I always find it helpful to know which kind of cinnamon I’m getting into before I take a sip. Expecting one and tasting the other is not always a pleasant experience. Let it be known: Hot Mama Read More
