I can’t tell you all how much I love the name of this tea. I have been in love with the Evil Dead Series and Ash (& Bruce Campbell) for years. I really liked this tea. This is one tasty Earl Grey. Not my favorite Earl Grey but up there on the list.

But lets be honest here. . .I would have bought this tea on the name alone.

My dad & I had a lot of fun with this blend. We used some of the leftover herbs from Litehouse Foods. It was tasty. Just not to the "WOW’ point. I want to try it again. This company is so adorable and they have some tasty sounding blends on their site. Just need to try this one again.

Thanks Shae again for turning me on this company!

I’m glad you’re having fun with some of their blends! I think they’re such a neat little company, but maybe I’m biased because they are local. :) I sent a couple more of their blends your way on Saturday so you should get them sometime today.

Was super excited when my first month’s teas arrived on Saturday from Handmade Tea. I ripped open the pkg and was a little puzzled by the tea. Roasted Chocolate Pineapple Tea Mate. Yeah. . I wasn’t so sure. But the packaging was fantastic! A wax sealed envelope. So fun!

Brewed up the tea and was insanely impressed. This tasted just like a robust coffee with dark chocolate notes. I never picked up any of the pineapple but that may be just because I need to shake up the bag. Super impressed with this. So is the boyfriend. I am going to have to hide this one if I want to keep any of it for myself.

I love this company. I have found only a few blends that just weren’t my cup ‘o tea and those were floral ones. I just don’t really care for floral teas that much or maybe I just haven’t found the right one.

This is one tasty chai blend. Recommend it for those who aren’t fans of really spicy chai. Sweet with a kick. Added some cream and it was yummers!

Thank you Shae for the sample! I really really enjoyed this blend! Crisp and Refreshing with an incredible green tea finish. I can’t find anything I didn’t like about it and am looking forward to getting more.

I’m glad you enjoyed this one – I really liked it too. Which reminds me, I need to put in an order with Tealated for some more pretty soon.

Picked this one up from Marzipan- I love chamomile teas but this one, I just didn’t like. It almost had an off setting sour taste. I couldn’t even finish the cup. The odd sour taste overwhelmed the tea.

Flavors: Sour

Marzipan

:(. I remember liking it, but I sweeten my teas.

drank Green Tea Kombucha by Yogi Tea

I was surprised how much I liked this one. I think I drank this one consistently last week. Usually I hop around between two if not three teas some days. This one I couldn’t get enough of.The more I drank it, the more I enjoyed it. The sweetness of the plum flavoring made this an addictive tea.

It could have been the ease of the prep too. Sometimes I work I don’t want to deal with loose leaf tea.

Here is the rest of my ramblings and this sweet tea!

drank Monkey Chops by Bluebird Tea Co.

Looking back, it looks like I’ve had this one before but this go around, my tastes must have changed. I didn’t get a rich bold banana flavor like I had hoped, but a very muted one. I have some of the 52Teas Banana that was just released a month or so ago and I need to try that one.

This one just didn’t deliver that banana flavor I am constantly searching for. That’s ok. I’ve already found a home for it.

Oh where to begin. Its been a crazy couple years. My life has completely been turned upside down but I’m very happy where I landed. I’m finally in a great place-Living with an amazing guy and his hilarious yet full of attitude twin teenage boys, and my two adorable kiddos in Central Illinois and there is no other place I’d want to be.

Now on to the tea: I love all kinds. I’m not a huge fan of red rooibos but I love green rooibos. Beyond that, I’ll try everything once or twice to make sure I didn’t bumble up the steepings. If you are interested in something from me, just holler at me. I’m always up for trying new tea blends or sharing with others!

Recently, I was added to the SororiTea Sisters. I’m very excited and grateful for this new adventure to begin. Check us out here: http://sororiteasisters.com/.
