Oprah is a symbol across the world. Her image and name evoke smiles on the faces of women everywhere from the thoughts of inspiration and achievement Oprah presents. Oprah has a list of ‘favorite things’ she likes to share with her guests. Among them have been some of the teas from Talbott Teas, including this Luscious Lemon Meringue.
I haven’t reviewed one of Frank’s teas in a long time. It’s time I got to it! This time I’ve got one for you you should still be able to buy! Sadly my review process makes it difficult to get my posts out before Frank sells out of his latest batch of product. But this tea proved so popular that Frank made it a member of the 52teas Permanent Collection!
When I went to Disney World the last thing I was thinking of was tea. But lo-and-behold, there it was! Staring me in the face at the Epcot gift store I was in! Of the two teas I saw that were loose leaf, I bought both! My first review is of this Topsy Turvy Tea Blend.
Hojicha is such a unique tea. It’s aroma is used by Japanese shop owners to draw people in to browse their wares. It’s used as a wonderfully calming beverage with subtle notes and great tradition. This Hojicha from Ito En doesn’t disappoint.
Fig. Figgy pudding. Fig. I do love figs. They’re underutilized here in The States I think. This Organic Cinnamon Fig Black Tea from Art of Tea is worth a look-see if you happen to have a taste for the figgy goodness.
This tea is brought to us by some new folks at the 2011 World Tea Expo. Octavia Tea had a slew of different pure and blended teas at their booth which all looked and smelled great. They provided me some samples, and I bring you the first of many reviews!
Shortly after the 2011 World Tea Expo I made a suggestion to Art of Tea via Twitter to make a tea with Kiwi in it. I felt this fruit was undervalued by the tea blenders of the world, but also a difficult pairing. A couple weeks later, I got my wish!
In the wake of the 2011 World Tea Expo I came across a series of accessories which make it simple to brew your tea. A couple of these have been around a few years, such as Adagio Teas’ ingenuiTEA. However, with new entrants to this area of tea making fun there’s a need for a product SHOOTOUT!
This year’s World Tea Expo is my 3rd trip to this event. I’ve appreciated the opportunities to learn and meet new people each year. I’ve made friends and contacts from every corner of the world and every continent save for Antarctica. The events and sights from this first day of the expo are similar to those from the past two years. Full of energy, vibrant colors and effusive scents tantalizing for everyone here. Read more to learn more.
Check out my coverage of both Day 1 and Day 2 of the 2011 World Tea Expo.
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed an iced tea. In the interim I’ve had a few I’ve liked and a few I haven’t. This iced Organic Classic Pu-erh from Numi Tea provided a nice respite from the usual iced tea by offering up a pure iced tea. But to have a mass market iced pu-erh is something special altogether.
This is the fifth and final entry in a series of posts on Numi Teas’ new Pu-erh Iced Teas.
