Plum Berry

Tryinig Plum Berry from Sencha Tea Bar Iced. . . . #SenchaTeaBar

Since I have gotten my iced tea press it has been strictly used for fruit teas. Personally, I think those make the best iced teas and the lack of caffeine means I can have iced tea after iced tea without getting the jitters from caffeine overload. However, as I browsed my tea cupboard for the perfect tea, this caught my eye. A tea called Plum Berry is just begging to be iced and since the sample I had was the perfect serving size for the press, it felt right. Alas, sipping on this now, it doesn’t taste right. My concern Read More

Raspberry Champagne from The Love Tea Co. . .

There is something extra special about flavored white teas that are done RIGHT and this one from The Love Tea Co. is one of those teas. Raspberry Champagne from The Love Tea Co is very berry nicely flavored! I’ve had a few other raspberry champagne flavored teas before. Some of them seem to really ‘do up’ the champagne like-ness while others focus on the raspberry. This one is completely satisfying with not leaning one way or the other. It’s a great ‘in the middle of the flavor’ spectrum! White Tea, Safflowers, Whole Dried Raspberries, Champagne and Red Raspberry Flavoring are Read More

Strawberry White from Shantitea. . . . .

When I first opened my package of Strawberry White from Shantitea, the amazing scent of fresh strawberries was overwhelmingly mouthwatering. I loved the fresh, fruity scent!! The tea leaves were full and rich in color. After letting Strawberry White infuse, I poured my first cup and enjoyed the sweet scent and vibrant red shade of the tea. I love white tea, and especially when it’s fruity with a hint of floral, both scent and flavor wise. When I took my first sip, I noticed a tart and candy-like sweetness. I also notice an almost tobacco leaf like flavor, which is Read More

Cricket from Whispering Pines Tea Company. . . . .

Today I’m drinking tea to try to cut through the hazy, dizzy feeling from too many of my mother-in-law’s mimosas. My in-laws are a rowdy, touchy bunch that imbibes, as opposed to my silent, book-readng, tea-drinking clan. I’m not with my family today, so I have to channel them via tea. This cup is a gentle white tea with flowery cinnamon notes. It’s like a summer morning in a flower-strewn prairie. The tea itself takes a backstage to the dainty main notes. When I looked up this tea on the Whispering Pines site, the author talks about a cricket song Read More

Dragon’s Palm Tree from Adagio Teas. . .A Signature Blend

What a light, sweet, darling delight of a tea! This white/peach/strawberry/apricot delight is the tea equivalent of that coral color all the cool kids are wearing these days. Almost pastel, but with that punch of color. Every time I sip it, I’m a little surprised. I feel like I’m getting POW!ed in the face by a cartoon character. Like those old Batman onomatopoeia typographic masterpieces: Robin would be like “Holy unexpected flavor blast, Batman! This dragon tea is fierce!” And Batman would say, “not NOW, Robin! Get the Bat Shark Repellent!” Robin would say, “Will that work on dragons?” Batman Read More
