Episode 036: Raspberry Riot Lemon Maté

I generally like my matés pretty plain (Samurai Chai Maté is an exception), but this raspberry riot lemon maté blend from Teavana is pretty fantastic.

Green maté is mixed with raspberries, hibiscus, big pieces of apple, and lots of rose flavors to create a pretty satisfying cup of tea. The raspberry and fruit flavors are the star here, but you also get the kick that comes with a proper maté. It’s the best of both worlds!

Episode 038: Black Coconut

Surprise! It’s another tea from Just Add Honey! I get these in my semi-monthly CSA pack. Their black coconut blend has a lot of great ingredients — black tea, honeybush (for sweetness), cocoa, coconut…and apple?

Even with that odd addition, this is a pretty satisfying cup for morning or after-drinner drinking. Take the coconut flavor to the next level by sweetening this with palm sugar and adding coconut milk! Dessert in a glass!

Episode 049: Caramel Dipped Apple

Okay, so my last review from The Necessiteas might have been a bit harsh. I decided to give them another shot with this caramel dipped apple blend.

Oh…where to start. It’s good in theory. The caramel spheres lend a nice creamy profile to the green tea, but the blend overall is ruined because of the whole cloves and the artificial flavors. I could barely finish the cup.
