Jasmine Pearls from Adagio Teas

I have searched for a tea tasting journal for the past few years, but I never found exactly what I was looking for; so, I have been writing in whatever journal I had sitting around. Notes are scattered throughout four different journals, which are now tucked under odd places, like the couch, in Oliver’s toy…

March Empties: Adagio Teas, DavidsTea, T2 Teas, and more!

I’m nearly a month into my tea buying ban, and I’m still staying strong despite the temptations broadcasted on YouTube and in my Instagram feed. I sipped my way through 22 teas this month, although that hardly made a dent in my collection. You can watch the YouTube video to learn about everything I tasted in March,…

The First Day of Spring with Chunmee Green Tea

How appropriate that I should upload a video and publish a blog post about a delicious tea that resonates Springtime on the first day of Spring? I didn’t even plan this. I don’t even think I’m that clever anymore. Of course, it’s only March, which means Michiganders are still weeks away from consistently pleasant weather and pink…

Gardens & Green Tea

There is something overwhelming about Springtime. I’m sure I bring it on myself after six months of hibernation, but the rate at which tasks are added to my To Do List makes me withdraw from the world. Thankfully, family came for a visit, and I was wrenched from my comfort zone (lately known as “the…

Lemon Meringue Green Tea is the Cat’s Meow

You probably won’t believe me when I say I’m not that keen on lemon-flavored anything. Not after I baked that delicious Lemon Loaf Cake inspired by the Memory of Lemon by Judith Fertig. And definitely not after I raved about Lemon Soleil Tea from Adagio Tea. I’m not even sure I believe it myself, especially…

Some Thoughts on Tea and the Changing of the Seasons

There are two things I have realized after brewing myself a cup of Teavivre’s Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea. First, all tea from Teavivre require a certain kind of care when brewing– the temperature of the water and the length of time you allow the leaves to steep are important, unlike the Twinnings tea…

Tealated for Green Tea

I don’t remember from where I discovered Tealated tea— I was reading a review on a blog, and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t bookmark the website because I owe them a hundred “thank you”s. I signed up for the Tealated newsletter, and I had the opportunity to try two free samples of tea. I…

Avaata Supreme Nilgiri Green Tea

Perhaps it was kismet that I made a last-minute decision to take the day off– otherwise, I would have missed signing for this charming package from Golden Tips Tea! It’s not every day that you receive a package in the mail from India. Especially one wrapped in cloth and sealed with wax. The selection of…
