There are many ways to make chai. Even within India itself different regions prepare this classic beverage differently. I have had fantastic coconut and pumpkin spice chai blends. All are twists on the base masala recipe for chai. This Vanilla Bean Chai from 52teas is a nice soothing blend.
Fig is a tremendously underrated fruit. Aside from Fig Newtons there aren’t many people here in the ‘States’ who consume this fruit frequently. This Cinnamon Fig Rooibos is light but flavorful and an every day quality tea if you ask me.
Frank over at 52teas is at it again! This time attempting to recreate the flavors of a time-honored Summer favorite, the Banana Split! I happen to be a fan of these tasty treats. Let’s see how Frank’s recreation fares shall we?
All of us have favorite ice cream flavors. Some of us enjoy chocolate or cookies & cream. My mom loves rocky road, and this rocky road inspired tea from 52teas provides the sweet delicious essence without the calories!
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed one of the concoctions blended by Frank over at 52teas. His work can be both ingenious and esoteric. Since the blends largely come from community suggestions these 52teas blends can be hit or miss. I’ve found most of them to be pretty decent though. Including this Date Flavored Black Tea.
As the weather gets colder, I’ve noticed myself gravitating to more spiced teas that usual. This lightly spiced citrus infused sencha style green tea from 52teas is a palate pleaser.
I’ve been on a fruit kick recently. I bought a big container of grapefruit. I’ve been eating apples constantly. And There’s this Pineapple Guava Green Tea from 52teas to close the chapter out!
Over the last twenty years or so the tea industry has really seen an explosion of creativity. Of course, this is an extension of a longer trend, but also a micro-trend itself. Flavor creativity with teas has hit a high note!
You’ll never believe this… but this tea from Zoomdweebies’ 52teas tastes just like Coconut Cream Pie!
I’m often skeptical of tropical fruits being mixed with the more subtle flavors inherent in well devised green teas. Call me paranoyed for my favorite base teas. This mix from 52teas is well blended using real fruit pieces!
