Alice's Tea Cup- mango flip


 
 
My friend went to NYC and surprised me with bringing me back some AWESOME TEAS!!!!  What an amazing treat.  And not just one kind, but three different kinds of tea!
 




Mango tisane with pineapple, hibiscus, raisins, and sunflowers. Fantastic when iced!

This tea is naturally non-caffeinated. We recommend steeping this tea for about 7 minutes with water between 208 to 212 degrees Fahrenheit.


 
Mango Flip sounded so fun I had to try it first. 





I steeped for 5 minutes, instead of the seven that they recommend.  I was glad I did, I got two cups out of it.  Plus, when I realized it was on the tart side, I was glad I had not steeped it longer.


 
It is really great!!!!!  I did add some sugar too it, which I don't usually do, but it was a bit tart.  The sugar sweetened it. I drank it hot, but can not wait to make it cold this summer.

Bubble tea with the boss....


 
I found out the new President likes Bubble Tea- so of course I had to make him some!!!
 
I made a lavender and an almond one, he picked the almond.  I enjoyed my lavender one.  I love bubble tea.  The chewy tapioca balls/pearls add to the fun of drinking.  You get to chew on them, but be sure you don't suck too hard threw the straw and choke on them!!! 

 
 
There are a multitude of flavors.  And for $12.95 you get a pound bag.



The tapioca balls/pearls are from amazon too. They are super easy to get ready.  Basically add water and heat on the stove.  The longer they are in water the bigger they get- at least it seems that way to me.

Arizona Peach Tea

 
Not sure I have ever tried the Arizona Peach Tea.  It was on sale for .50 so I decided to try it.  I think even thought I usually LOVE peach tea, I probably won't buy it again.  I think I will stick with Raspberry or the white blueberry tea that they have.  It wasn't that it was bad, I just think that Snapple and Smith's have a better peach tea.
