Episode 016: Chai-napple Gunpowder

Today I’m reviewing another fun blend from Zoomdweebie’s 52 Teas line — chai-napple gunpowder. They’ve mixed traditional gunpowder green tea with chai spaces (cinnamon, ginger, caramon) and freeze dried pineapple.

As a hot tea, this didn’t really float my boat. But once it cooled down to room temperature, those spices really came out and it was quite enjoyable with the sweetness of the pineapple. I can imagine this would be really tasty iced! Give it a try!

Episode 018: Toasted Nut Brulee

Teavana’s tea blends can be really hit or miss. This toasted nut brulee blend is a mix of oolong and rooibos along with a kitchen sink of other ingredients like coconut, ginger, and pineapple.

The resulting brew is nutty and spicy and oddly creamy. All the flavors really don’t come together in a very good way, but it’s more palatable iced than hot. If you’re allergic to nuts, you definitely should stay away from this.

Episode 042: Men’s Activity Tea

ESP Emporium’s Men’s Activity Tea is a familiar blend. It reminds me a lot of Aveda’s Comforting Tea I reviewed last month; super aromatic, sweet, and slightly spicy.

There’s a ton of ingredients in here, and the mix of flavors produces a tangy yet satisfying cup of tea. I’m not sure what makes this a “men’s” tea specifically, but it did give me some get-up-and-go after lunch. Your mileage may vary.

Episode 054: Spicier Chai

Winter is still wreaking havoc on us all, so I needed a good spicy tea to wake me up and keep me warm. Enter Zoomdweebie’s Spicier Chai.

Overall, it’s not bad! It’s a step above a regular chai blend that you may find, and the extra spice comes in the form of red pepper flakes. It’s a lot like Zoomdweebie’s Mayan Chocolate Chai, so if you’re not a big chocolate fan but love a strong chai blend, take this tea for a spin!

Episode 057: Climber’s High

Surprise — another maté blend! As a non-coffee drinker, maté and black tea are my go-to beverages when I need a buzz. The Tea Spot’s Climber’s High is a great, well-rounded cup of tea that’s great when you need a jolt in the morning or a pick-me-up after lunch.

It’s a yerba maté blend with chai spices, so it’s a light in body but heavy on flavor. There’s also tulsi rama, green tea, white tea, and pu’erh in this blend. It’s kind of a Whitman’s Sampler of tea in one cup!
