Wildwonder Ginger Lemon, Turmeric Peach, and Peach Ginger





The tea in this one is Honeybush.  I am not always a fan of this tea flavor, but I would have never known that this tea was in here before I read it on the label.


These were on sale at World Market the other day, so I purchased some to try.  I have to say I was pleased.  The flavors were spot on and has real ingredients.




The only draw back was the sugar, but I know that some of that is natural in the fruits.



This one has black tea in it.


The Lemon Ginger and Peach Ginger were my favorites.  I like the zing and kick they had.





There are so many great and healthy things for you in these drinks, check out the website.  From the website,

I did not care for this one as much.  I am not sure if it was the Rooibos in the drink or what.  But, I did not enjoy the flavors as much.



Overall if you see this drink I would recommend it...if it is on sale.  For me, I would not spend over $3 on a cold drink like this...but that is just me.

NUBA Hibiscus


This was another fun tea I picked up at World Market.  I love all their fun and unique products.  This one was not on sale, but I splurged anyway.


From the website, "Our tisane is as simple as its ingredients. Only organic whole flowers are brewed to create this ruby red tangy, moderately sweet and full and flavour.

We don't use any concentrates, extracts or preservatives."



This took me right back to Africa!  I felt like I was in Guinea West Africa drinking Bissap.  The flavors of Hibiscus were great.  I just wish there was not so much sugar.  As always sugar is the killer in these drinks.


I do love hibiscus!!!  It is fun that these flowers came from Egypt along the Nile.


Even with the sugar, you can see I finished it all, lol.  I bought a sweetened and an unsweetened one.  I prefer the unsweetened one, even though it is more tart.  The unsweetened tea only has 1% sugar.

 

Flavors were great, it was the sugar that got me in the sweetened one.  But, the one that was unsweetened was really good, tart, but good.

Ohio Tea Company, Lemon Ginger Tea

 Here is another Ohio Tea that we carry at my work.  I am a big fan of all the ingredients in this tea but licorice.  Sadly, the licorice was too strong for me.  But, others at work are enjoying it.

You never know what tea you might not be a fan of, someone else loves.  I love the uniqueness of  all of us.  God made us all different and that is so cool.  Remember just because you don't like something doesn't mean it is necessarily bad or wrong. I am glad not everyone is like me, lol!

Ingredients:

Organic: lemon peel, lemongrass, ginger, licorice, spearmint

The lemon and mint notes are really nice in this tea.  You also get some heat of the ginger on the back of your throat which is fun.  But, the licorice is also in the notes, so for me this tea on is only a 3. It is still a nice tea, but just not for me. But, again, others in the office really do like it a lot.

Mr and Mrs Kit-Tea Steepers

 

How adorable are these guys??

We had sunshine buddies at work.  We were to encourage them with kind words, notes, or small gifts.  My buddy knew I loved tea and cats and got me these tea steepers.  They are so fun, I love them.




Add the tea to the bottom half and then fasten together and then steep your tea.

Muggswigz Coffee and Tea and some thrift store tea finds

I was out shopping with a friend today.  We had fun checking out thrift shops- I got some fun new clothes and some teapots.  We were looking for something to drink at the end of the day that was more than the lady in green.

We went to the local place, Muggswigz.  They has some nice selections of tea and even some holiday specials.

Sorry this photo is a little hard to read, I have the wrong angle here.  But, you can see that each barista has picked their favorite drink...I do think this is super clever!




I ordered the holiday chai.  The price was a high, but it was less than some of the other speciality teas that they carry there.  Some of the special teas were over $7.00


Lake Cable Coffee & Tea Bar

5854 Fulton Dr. NW

Canton OH 44718

(330)754-1017



The staff was friendly, but not overly helpful on the teas they had and the flavors.  The prices were a bit high and the flavors were just okay.  I am only giving them 3 teacups since the over all experience was just medicore.


Here are two of my favorite thrift store finds...copper teapot that holds my basil.  


...and these little teapot to hold these little roses.


Use your imagination and have fun with teapots!

INOTEA, Taro Bubble Tea

I found this tea at World Market.  I love shopping their tea isle and seeing what new products they have.  Taro is a root vegetable. I had been saying it was a purple potato- But I was wrong!  It is just a root vegetable.  Either way, I am fan of it!


This is an Authentic Taiwanese Milk Tea.







The flavor of the tea was great.  The bubbles were not great- they were overly squishy.  I could not get past the texture.  The sugar is also way higher than I would want.  So based on the sugar and the taste of the bubble- I am giving it 3 teacups.  But, if you are only looking for good Taro flavor- you will like this tea.

Ohio Tea Creamy Toasted Coconut Oolong and Lavender Tea

Only me second ever snow day in 18 years of working where I work!!!!  I was happier than a kid a Christmas.  A real, honest to goodness snow day!!!

I went out to make a snowman but it was too cold and windy, so I made two little snow people.  It was to represent my friends in CO that I miss.  I used my mini Starbuck cups to show Colorado and Ohio.




I decided to make a pot of my favorite tea.  I usually don't make an entire pot for myself, but I decided today would be a great day to do it since I would not be going any where.

I made the kettle water 177 degrees.  Oolong is a light tea, so I set the water accordingly.


I mixed the coconut oolong with the lavender tea.


Ohio Tea Company has the best Creamy Toasted Coconut Oolong tea!  I also love adding their Lavender Flowers to it.  It's encouraged to play with your tea!


Since I am doing a 5 cup teapot, I added 5 scoops of tea.


I put hot water in the teapot and then poured it out, just to make the pot warm.  Then I added hot water and added the tea.  I steeped for about 4 minutes.


I love this creamy coconut tea with notes of lavender.  This one of my all time favorite teas!  I love the unique flavor of oolong that none of the other teas have.

Reminder- Black Tea, Green Tea, White Tea, Yellow Tea, Pu-erh Tea and Oolong Tea all come from the same plant, the Camellia Sinesis plant!!  The difference comes from the harvest, oxidation, and drying of the tea leaf.





Enjoying this tea in February....love all the hearts of February
