Strawberry Shortcake from The NecessiTeas. . . . .

One of my absolute, all-time, favorite summer desserts is strawberry shortcake. I have really, really fond memories of strawberry shortcake from when I was a kid. My nana and papa would always have BBQ get-together at their house and my nana would buy biscuits from the grocery store and we would pile them with cool whip and fresh strawberries. It was so good, so cool, and fresh, and summery. When I think of a strawberry shortcake tea, I want it to be crisp and fresh tasting…and of course, strawberry!

Pumpkin Caramel Torte from A Quarter To Tea. . .

My daughter is one of THOSE people who goes crazy over pumpkin-everything in the fall. When I saw this sample, I knew we had to taste it together, so I packed it up for the trip out of town to her place. The dry leaf smells wonderful, with a creamy vanilla and spice scent that is very promising. The white tea leaves are large and there are chunks of all kinds of goodies in this blend. We followed the recommended steeping instructions to a T. The steeped tea has a wonderfully comforting aroma, different from the leaves. The dry leaf Read More

White Pina Colada from Tea and Tins. . . .

I have kind of been on a roll here, trying all sorts of pina colada and coconut flavored teas. I have said it before and ill say it again, they both really are my favorite flavors in the summertime. I can honestly say, with 100% certainty, that thus far this White Pina Colada tea is hands down the best i’ve tried. I am SO GLAD I bought two ounces of it. irst off it smells like pina colada mix, so right off the bat it is realistic and giving me visions of me laying on an island beach in a Read More

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
