Tea Time - What I Have Been Sipping On

I have been going a bit tea crazy these last few weeks. My usual green tea in the morning and night time sleepy blend have been replaced. I blame Cost Plus for having great varities. You go in to look at their retro inspired Halloween stuff and walk out with a bag full of tea and a sugar skull wind chime!

I first saw Red Velvet Chocolate by The Republic of Tea in the current issue of Veg News and wanted to try it right away but was having a hard time finding it...Well, I found it and have been drinking it daily! It is kinda chocolatey, very smooth and tasty. I serve it with a bit of stevia and plain almond milk. This is like hot chocolate for those that like the drink but do not like how rich it is.Zhena's Gypsy Tea has some new chai flavors out - they even say vegan on the tube (I know when I think chai - I think honey which is not vegan - duh!). I like them all, prepared with the same method as above. They are spicy and sweet, comfort in a cup!

What tea are you drinking? Also what can I do with all these tube tins that are stacking up!?!


  1. I just finished my Republic of Tea vanilla rooibos, so I need to hit up World Market for one of these! Right now I hav some Trader Joe's teas, but they're not as good.

  2. Yum! And I'm so jealous that you have a Cost Plus in your area, they closed all of their Minnesota stores a few years ago and I was so sad!

  3. I've got to find that chocolate tea! Chai is a taste that I only like every now and then, but I'll have to keep an eye out for Zhena's for those times.

  4. Oh those sound yummy!!!

    I love Zhena's Gypsy Tea in Pumpkin (I still have it left over from last year)!

    I will have to try to find these delicious flavors! :)
