The6Tea The Rooibos Rainbow Tea Review

The6Tea Rooibos Rainbow Tea Review

Another tea from The6Tea, a local Toronto area tea company.  If you are not familiar with The6Tea, I first heard about them because you can make your own tea blends through them at an affordable price.  I previously tried All That Jazz from them (featuring a photo of the Jazz Monster of course) and now have The Rooibos Rainbow for you.  This one is meant to taste like a pot of gold with fruity and smooth amaretto notes in South[Read more]

DAVIDSTEA Soup Teas

DAVIDsTEA Soup Teas - First Impressions

I will admit to being a little weirded out by these and have not tried them yet.  So expect reviews in the coming week or so.  But DAVIDsTEA launched some new tea-ware and soup teas today.  If you are confused by “soup teas” join the club.  But they are savory teas that include ingredients like tomato and turmeric with a green tea base.  You can brew them as a broth and remove the tea or for a heartier soup tea,[Read more]

Tickled Tea Rum and Cola Tea Review

DAVIDsTEA Chai Collection & Glass Latte Mugs Are Back!

DavidsTea Fall 2017 Chai Collection Teas - White Chocolate Chai - Smores Chai - Pumpkin Chai

I was not that excited by the Chai Collection that hits DAVIDsTEA stores today.  I am fussy about chai as I am not the biggest fan of cinnamon but then I heard latte mugs are making a comeback.  There may have been some actual squealing when I saw the double walled latte mugs online!  While everyone else is oohing over the new raccoon Nordic, I am stocking up on latte mugs!  But there are new teas, so let’s start with[Read more]

Wild Heather Campfire Smores Tea

Wild Heather Campfire Smores Tea - Loose Tea

I realize that lapsang souchong is not for everyone.  The smokey smell, the strong flavour, definitely an acquired taste.  But if you have ever wanted to try one, Wild Heather Tea Company’s Campfire Smores is a great starter.  With a sprinkling of cocoa nibs, chocolate chips and sugar the sweeter taste makes it the perfect beginner tea for a Lapsang.  Still very smoky (even more so than DAVIDsTEA Lapsang Souchong Star but less pine flavour) but the sweetness and chocolate[Read more]
