The Perfect Pear from Della Terra Teas – Tea Review

The Perfect Pear is a black tea and pear blend from Della Terra Teas. Mmmm…. pear tea! I snagged this sample for free with my last Della Terra teas order. They have some really fantastic sales! 25 to 30% off, free shipping or free samples! Totally stalk their Facebook page to stay in the loop for their sales! This the a sample size from Della Terra – so I can get a couple cups of tea out of it. All their other sizes have steeping instructions, so I checked the website and wrote them on the back of my package. Really handy … Continue reading, hoot!

Pomegranate Fruit from Georgia Tea Company – Tea Review

Pomegranate Fruit is a herbal fruit tea blend featuring apple, raisins, carrot, hibiscus blossoms, candied papaya, vanilla and pomegranate and cornflower blossoms. This caffeine free tea is from Georgia Tea Company. I gotta say Georgia Tea Company has some really good tea prices, plus inexpensive samples if you want to try the tea. All the teas I got from Georgia Tea Company came sealed in plastic, but inside a paper bag to keep your tea in. I prefer to just seal up the plastic bag as it saves tea stash space. DRY LEAF: Pomegranate Fruit smells like dried fruity trail mix with raisins. … Continue reading, hoot!

Tea Additions – Adding more flavor to your tea without sweeteners

Wanna add some extra tasty to your tea without adding sugar? Does your tea unfortunately fall flat on flavorings? Need some extra spice in your staple cup of tea? Try some of my tea addition suggestions! 1. Vanilla Bean Pod Say what? This sounds expensive! I buy my vanilla bean pods from Amazon.com, which you can get a big package for cheaper than 4 single pods at a grocery store. I originally got the pods for making my own vanilla extract, however sometimes I use the pods for baking. When using a pod, you slit the vanilla bean open, scrape out of the inner goodies … Continue reading, hoot!

Bursting Lychee from Steep City Teas – Tea Review

Bursting Lychee is a exotic fruity white tea blend from Steep City Teas. I’ve had a number of lychee teas, but more often they are black teas. For the longest time, I’d buy this cheap boxed black lychee bagged tea from my local asian grocery store. It was good and kinda lychee, but also bitter tasting as if I ate the hard lychee skin! I’m really happy to see a white lychee tea – so I bought this with my second order with Steep City! I think the white tea would work the best to show off the lychee flavor and … Continue reading, hoot!

A Rabbits Garden from Della Terra Teas – Tea Review

A Rabbit’s Garden is a green tea blend featuring peas, corn, peaches, carrots and lemongrass. This very unique tea is from Della Terra Teas. When I saw the description for this tea I had to get it. What the??? PEAS? CORN? SIGN ME UP! Though I’m sure there’s some of you out there immediately would pass on this tea. I own a rabbit. In my teen years, I lived on a farm and we had Flemish giant bunnies – very big rabbits! In university I owned a Netherland Dwarf, Bunito, who lived for 8 years. As soon as I moved to … Continue reading, hoot!

Three Friends from Butiki Teas – Tea Review

Three Friends is a black tea with orange, chocolate and marshmallow flavoring. This tea is from Butiki Teas. Okay, I am slightly biased here. I love Terry’s Chocolate Oranges. I’m homesick for Canada and my family, so the smell and taste of chocolate oranges bring me back to spending time with my Dad. He always gave me a chocolate orange for Christmas. The first time I got one, I was insistent I break it myself – but I was a pretty weak of a kid. Heck, despite all my brazilian jiu jitsu, my upper body strength is kinda crap. Dad … Continue reading, hoot!

Check out their Facebook page and Twitter! Their America’s website is http://ninasteastore.com/ Anyways, I got a handful of samples from them – yum!

I wish I had more than one serving of each so I can do a full review with sweeteners or  as lattes! Marie Antoinette is a black tea blend with rose petals and apple flavoring. Dry leaf, … Continue reading, hoot!

S’mores Genmaicha from 52 Teas – Tea Review

S’mores Genmaicha is a chocolate and marshmallow green tea blend from 52 Teas, an online tea seller that comes up with fun new blends each week. Okay my tea peeps. I feel bad. This tea sold out but I’m still reviewing it. Hey, I bet it’ll get blended again hopefully. If it doesn’t I’m sure we’ll campaign and wishlist it until it does. As soon as I saw 52 Tea tweets that it was up, I bought myself a package without blinking an eye. When 52 Teas comes out with a tea you know you’ll like you buy it ASAP. If … Continue reading, hoot!

Kamba Berry from Butiki Teas – Tea Review

Kamba Berry is a purple tea blended with freeze dried blueberries, strawberries, Ethiopian sweet basil and powdered ginger. This interesting berry tea comes from Butiki Teas! Wah, purple tea? I’ve had purple tea before, as a sample from Butiki Teas, and it was pretty good, though it was awhile ago. This Kamba berry tea sounded really good since I love both strawberry and blueberry, so it sneaked its way into my shopping cart. DRY LEAF: Berry tart smell with a slight medicinal herb smell to it – ginger? The smell of berries has attracted a wild OWLBEAR to our tea session! I guess … Continue reading, hoot!

RIP my cute sakura tea pot

/Sad owl My sakura print tea pot broke. ;___; What had happen was I was cleaning my pot. I had done a bit of baking soda scrub to get out the tea stains on the inside, as well as cleaning the spout. The baking soda made the pot slippery and it fell into the sink. And broke. I love having a 2 or 3 serving tea pot instead of a large mug as my tea stays hotter. The crappy part is that I’ve broken a couple of these pots already as I’m a klutz and these pots go through quite … Continue reading, hoot!
