52 Teas’ Mayan Chocolate Chai is the perfect mix of chai spices and chocolate. If you like Starbucks’ Chocolate Chai Tea Latte, you’ll love this! It’s a nice, deep, spicy chai blend further punctuated with the addition of cayenne pepper. It’s perfect for cold weather!
Genmaicha (also known as brown rice tea, tea of Genmai, popcorn tea, or the people’s tea) has an interesting history. Typically, genmaicha consists of bancha and roasted brown rice. Sometimes these grains pop, and the result looks like popcorn. The resulting brew is a nutty and smooth cup of tea that’s great all year long.
This blend includes mini marshmallows, which are a really nice complement to the genmaicha. It really does taste like a marshmallow treat! (Hey, that cereal company ain’t paying me for free promo.)
I was very intrigued by this green tea blend from Zoomdweebie’s. The base is green tea (banchan, I think), and there is a huge medley of over 20 flavors added. Since each blend has different quantities of flavors, each cup tastes different.
It’s a fairly good green tea, but the fruity flavors are the star here. Try it iced and you’ll really taste the depth and nuance of flavor. It’s a lot going on, but it actually works!
Darjeeling is such an interesting tea, y’all. It’s a Chinese tea that grows in India and can have a really layered and complex flavor profile. In this mango pineapple darjeeling blend, the good folks at Zoomdweebie’s have added freeze dried mango and pineapple to create a really satisfying cup.
The fruitiness of the mango and pineapple really play well with the darjeeling, and it makes for a fruity yet balanced brew. This is so, so, so good.
50 episodes! I’m celebrating by drinking one of my favorite Zoomdweebie’s blends — vanilla mint maté.
Toasty, malty yerba maté is paired up with peppermint, spearmint, and vanilla in this refreshing blend. It’s great for drinking in the morning — the mint will wake you up and so will the maté! It’s a bit like a Shamrock Shake in tea form thanks to the creamy undertones of the vanilla. The only difference is that this beverage isn’t neon green!
