Stardust from Tea & Tins. . . . . .

This tea sparkles — both literally and figuratively. The loose leaf has these cute little silver orbs that dissolve fairly well in the steep process. The resulting mid-brown tea has a glimmer effect. Looking into the tea is, indeed, a little bit like looking into space. But, of course, a tea that’s all show and no go is a waste of glitter-balls. Luckily, this is a yummy vanilla-black with a little bit of extra spice thrown in. The vanilla plays center stage, and the hint of spices keeps the blend from going over-sweet.

If you’re going for a kick in the pants, this isn’t it. But if you want a nice morning cup that you could sip in between, say, crocheting booties for children, this would be just the thing. I have a variety of scenarios this would be right for: – Drinking while wearing toe socks on a glassed-in porch while it’s snowing – Handing to someone who just came in from skiing Read More

Savo from Pacific Tea

First impression – or should I say QUESTION – when I took my first sniff of the dry Savo Tea from Pacific Tea was…why does this smell like coconut? There is a very simple and reasonable explanation for this. It’s because it contains Coconut Husks and Coconut. When I first looked at it I saw the husks but didn’t realize the husks were coconut husks. I didn’t really notice actual coconut either. But once I smelled the wonderful aroma it CLICKED.

Learn what white teas are available here. Taster’s Review: Sipdown! Gotta love a sipdown. Sipdowns make me happy and sad. Happy that I’ve enjoyed a tea to the point that I’ve finished it. Sad because if that tea is from 52Teas it means that more than likely that tea is one you can’t get again. I believe I reviewed this tea on my blog CuppaGeek, but I don’t believe I did here. So Read More
