  • Celebrating 31 with Birthday Tea!

    Celebrating 31 with Birthday Tea!

    I’m starting my 31st birthday off with a cup of Birthday Tea from Adagio Teas. This super special blend of black tea, caramel flavoring, sugar sprinkles, vanilla flavoring, and Creme flavoring is a treat I look forward to every year. It’s not available for sale on the Adagio Teas website; they slide a sample pack […]

  • Té alla Rosa Bianca from Tea Fiori

    Té alla Rosa Bianca from Tea Fiori

    Shut the front door! Did Té alla Rosa Bianca from Tea Fiori just make me a fan of white tea? For years, I’ve avoided white tea. That’s not to say it hasn’t somehow managed to find its way into my collection throughout the years. It’s usually the flavored varieties that end up in my online […]

  • Cotton Candy Rooibos from DavidsTea

    Cotton Candy Rooibos from DavidsTea

    I generally consider myself level-headed when it comes to finances…except when it comes to tea. Then I am guilty of being impulsive. I’m supposed to be on a tea buying ban, remember? Except I indulged in the DavidsTea semi-annual sale. And…can I let you in on a secret? I only shared half my haul. (Don’t […]

  • Forever Nuts from DavidsTea

    Forever Nuts from DavidsTea

    Forever Nuts from Davids Tea is a fan favorite. It is one of their best sellers, and lauded as a “gold standard” for herbal/fruit infusions by many of my favorite tea vloggers, so I gave in to peer pressure and purchased a bag for myself during DavidsTea’s recent semi-annual sale. Forever Nuts is a blend […]

  • Muzha Tie Guan Yin from Masters Teas

    Muzha Tie Guan Yin from Masters Teas

    If you have been a fan of Adagio Teas for any length of time, surely you have heard about their Masters Teas. It’s been a relatively small collection of hand-processed, premium teas, and to be honest, even though I knew they existed (and even purchased some Formosa Ali Shan Oolong), it’s a section of their […]

  • Tea Review: Rooibos Pecan Turtle from Adagio Teas (plus 4 tasTEA recommendations!)

      I haven’t always appreciated rooibos tea. I’ve struggled to put into words exactly what I sense when I’ve sip this type of tea, and the best I’ve been able to come up with to describe my experience is something between imitation vanilla extract and tobacco– not always the most appealing of flavors. However, Adagio […]

  • Taste Test: Cacao Husk Tea

    Back in December, Tea in Spoons hosted a Tea Sparrow teas giveaway, which I won (yay!) So first, thank you for the opportunity. Second, if you haven’t heard of Tea Sparrow, please go check them out! Tea Sparrow is a tea subscription service, and for $20 a month, subscribers receive 4 loose leaf teas to […]

  • Berry Creme Compote Iced Tea

    Berry Creme Compote Iced Tea

    Today, I’m sipping Berry Creme Compote from Adagio, and it’s one of those teas that makes me think it’s a lot warmer than it really is. Which is why it’s only 39 degrees outside, but I have the back door open to let in that cool Springtime breeze. Did I say “cool”? I suppose I […]

  • Tea Vlog: What I Drink in a Day

    We ran out of Bubly (which is just flavored seltzer water, like La Croix, but I feel less like a hipster drinking it), which means in attempt to avoid drinking plain water, I decided to drink a cup or two more tea than I usually do. Teas tasted in this vlog: Twinings Earl Grey – […]
