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… Continue Reading “Forever Nuts from DavidsTea”

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… Continue Reading “Muzha Tie Guan Yin from Masters Teas”

Motor City Comic Con 2019

tardis by andrew heath

I don’t think I have ever openly declared my nerdom here on my blog, but I have demonstrated it here, here, here, and here. Now however, I would like to declare it: I. Am. A. Nerd. Like a stay-up-well-past-my-bedtime-even-though-my-infant-son-has-me-sleep-deprived-so-I-can-sneak-in-some-video-game-playtime kind of nerd. Or a… Continue Reading “Motor City Comic Con 2019”

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… Continue Reading “Tea Review: Rooibos Pecan Turtle from Adagio Teas (plus 4 tasTEA recommendations!)”

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… Continue Reading “Taste Test: Cacao Husk Tea”

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… Continue Reading “March Empties: Adagio Teas, DavidsTea, T2 Teas, and more!”

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… Continue Reading “Berry Creme Compote Iced Tea”

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… Continue Reading “Tea Vlog: What I Drink in a Day”

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… Continue Reading “The First Day of Spring with Chunmee Green Tea”

I’m on a Tea Buying Ban! Plus, 9 TasTEA Recommendations

Of course I love tea. I wouldn’t have named my (old) blog Books & Tea otherwise. But, brewing tea is a ritual that takes time, and I rarely afforded myself the time to make myself a good cup of tea on a regular basis before Oliver… Continue Reading “I’m on a Tea Buying Ban!
