Citizen Tea Creamy Nut Oolong Tea Review

Citizen Tea Creamy Nut Oolong Review

I am pretty sure that this is a copy of the original Teaopia blend of Creamy Nut Oolong.  If not, Citizen Tea’s is very close.  No surprise there since the Teaopia founder who now owns Citizen Tea got it right the first time.    Citizen Tea Creamy Nut Oolong is nutty tasting, but not DAVIDsTEA Forever Nuts type nutty.  It is more balanced with the sweetness of caramel without being overly sweet and a creamy finish.  It isn’t pink either! [Read more]

Citizen Tea Black Pearls Tea Review

Citizen Tea Black Pearls Review

When I moved to Canada, Teaopia was my go to for tea.  There was one in the mall a short walk from my place.  They were so friendly, had great teas and were really knowledgeable about the teas.   The steepers we all love?  Teaopia had a “Tea Master” even back then.   When it was sold to Teavana they kept the location but you likely know my feelings on Teavana’s sales tactics, so I rarely visited.  So I was delighted to[Read more]

Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea Review (Holiday Tea 2017)

Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea Review 2017

Another of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride.  Like Candy Cane Lane, this one is released each year for the holidays and can be found at Bulk Barn.  I think this leans a little more shortbread than pure sugar cookie, but the sweet taste is there and a great low calorie alternative to a cookie.  It smells just like sugar cookies though!  This one is his favourite of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas so we have picked[Read more]

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris Tea Review

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris Tea Review 2017

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris is one of my favourite holiday teas.  Definitely one of my fave bagged holiday teas.  So easy to keep a couple in your purse when visiting people over the holidays who may not keep decent tea in the house.  There is only so much coffee a tea drinker can stomach in a day.  Christmas in Paris amps up the typical chocolate mint tea with some lavender for a sophisticated cuppa – one even people who[Read more]

DAVIDsTEA White Cranberry Bark Tea Review & White Chocolate Cranberry Bark Recipe

DAVIDsTEA White Cranberry Bark Tea Review & White Chocolate Cranberry Bark Recipe

Another of the recent winter/holiday collection from DAVIDsTEA.  White Cranberry Bark sounds delicious and I was hoping for a little more creamy taste.  Perhaps because I just had a sample and only three of the little chocolate stars in it?  So might be creamier if you buy in larger quantities. “Hooked on that decadent white chocolate bark packed with tart cranberries? You’re not alone. Get your holiday fix with this tantalizing fruit infusion. With juicy red berries and creamy white[Read more]
