Kirkland Green Tea Matcha Blend Review

Tea Reviews  No comments

I never expected to walk into my local Costo and buy a tea that I would fall in love with, especially being a much bigger fan of loose leaf teas than bagged ones. But, I’m very happy to report that hidden in this cheap looking box that reads Kirkland Green Tea Matcha Blend and little plastic envelopes is a delicious blend of Japanese green tea and sweet matcha. I am pleasantly surprised by this tea and still love it now that I’m on my second box of it.

As far as cheap green tea goes, this is a gem in disguise. Which you can find on Amazon, by the way. Its never bitter, its slightly sweet from the matcha and its incredibly smooth...

Top 5 Hibiscus Tea Health Benefits

Herbal TeaHerbal TeasTeas  No comments

It’s time to visit that crimson colored tea that everyone loves in this article. As you all may know Hibiscus tea is an incredibly popular herbal tea that is easily identified by it’s deep red color. Though slightly tart in taste (some might compare it to a cranberry-like flavor), it can of course be sweetened with your choice of sweetener (I personally recommend honey sticks). One of the great things about Hibiscus tea is that it’s delicious both hot and cold so you can enjoy it to warm yourself up on those cold winter days or cool yourself off with on a sunny day (and of course anything in between!). But enough of this rambling, let’s get to the reason why you came here! Below is the list of the top 5 Hibiscus tea health benefits:

Buddha’s Herbs Organic Chamomile Tea Review

Tea Reviews  No comments

Recently I was sent some tea samples from Buddha’s Herbs, a natural supplement and vitamin store who also happens to sell some teas. These aren’t the type of teas that I typically write about or review, but they are tea, so they have a home here too. Today I’ll be reviewing their Organic Chamomile tea, nothing too special about it, but who said all teas need to be flashy? If you aren’t aware of the health benefits of chamomile tea, then please check out my other article which outlines everything nicely.

The packaging is typical, a box with approximately 20 tea bags inside, each in their own individual paper wrapper to keep them fresh...

The Tea Cupany’s Tangy Gunpowder Review

Green TeaTea ReviewsTeas  No comments

This is the 4th and final(at least for now) review of The Tea Cupany. Today I’m jumping into their Tangy Gunpowder tea. This is a different type of green tea, it starts with a tightly rolled gunpowder base and apple and rosehip is added. Then some cinnamon to warm it up some. I’m not sure why it’s called “tangy” gunpowder, honestly, it has more of a maple taste to me. It’s very light on the green tea, but there’s still enough to enjoy those tiny pieces unrolling into full leaves. It amazes me every time to see that happen.

I steeped for 3 minutes or so with slightly under boiling water. My result was a very light and naturally sweet tea with a lot of maple tones to it. It’s great for fall and warming up...

The holiday season is fast approaching and hot beverages are becoming more popular as the temperatures drop and we all start to seek nice warm places to hang out for the next few months(sort of like hibernating, isn’t it?). My favorite warm beverage this time of year is the same as any other time of year…tea. But there are different kinds that I enjoy depending on the time of year and the weather outside and the holiday season is one of my favorite times for drinking tea, because of all of the holiday flavors! I know it’s a little early to be spreading holiday cheer(though the local mall already has it’s Santa house set up) but I wanted to share this with you guys anyway. These are 10 of my favorite holiday teas. In no particular order, by the way.

White Tea Benefits To Think About

TeasWhite Tea  No comments

Sometimes I find it hard to believe, but the fact is that just not everyone likes to drink tea. Some people think its boring, some people think its gross. We’re all entitled to our own opinions so that’s perfectly fine with me. But there are some teas that I think everyone should drink at least every now and then, and white tea is one of those teas. It’s the lightest of all the “true” teas out there(as in, not a tisane or herbal tea) and honestly doesn’t taste a whole lot like the tea you might be used to. When brewed properly, it’s light and refreshing and isn’t bitter or overpowering. It also has the least amount of caffeine so it’s safe for even more people.

But these aren’t the only reasons I think everyone should have white tea from time to time, it has enormous benefits along with it...

The Tea Cupany’s Pumpkin Pie Tea Review

Tea Reviews  No comments

It’s that time of year again, no, I don’t mean fall. I actually mean that chunk of the year that everyone is consuming so much pumpkin everything that it should be coming out of their ears. I think “autumn” should be replaced with “pumpkin madness” on calendars in the US and Canada. I do have a point here, though! Today I’m reviewing The Tea Cupany‘s Pumpkin Pie Tea, I got this about a month or so ago and I was originally saving it to post around Thanksgiving here in Canada. But, since I’m originally from the US it just didn’t feel like Thanksgiving to me, so I decided to wait until now. So here we go!

First off I want to say that while I do enjoy a pumpkin spice latte once or twice during this season, I don’t actually think any of it tastes like pumpkin...
