Snickerdoodle from 52Teas. . . .

I am a fan of dessert blends, regardless of what the tea base is. Whether it’s caffeinated or not, I always tend to prefer something sweet & unique. 52 Teas definitely has some unique blends so they are usually my go-to. This particular tea, Snickerdoodle, is a Honeybush/Rooibos blend which means that it is caffeine free and perfect for a guilt-free after-dinner treat to warm you up on a cold rainy evening!

Smelling the dry leaf on this one, the cinnamon and cookies really shines through. Even more so once the tea has been steeped. Snickerdoodles are not my favorite cookie, i’m more into hot chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the over with a cold glass of milk! However, the flavors involved in a Snickerdoodle (cinnamon & sugar) make for an excellent cup of tea. Not only is this warm, cinnamon-sugary, and comforting but there is an actual “cookie” flavor to the cup. The Honeybush/Rooibos blend is subtle and smooth so if you tend to dislike rooibos you should still give this one a try!

Here’s the scoop!

Blackberry Cobbler from Pinch of Geek

A couple weeks ago, my husband and I went out and had a mixed berry cobbler for dessert. We weren’t even that hungry, but we ate nearly to the point of tummy-explosion because it was just that good.

This tea tastes just like that ‘zert. The rooibos and spices make up the crumbles, and the rich berries fill in the rest. There are no artificial flavors in this, and you can really tell.

It’s like wandering around on a hiking trail and stuffing them into your mouth.

And wondering about whether that’s okay. Trails are always like “take only photos; leave only footprints.”

But what about a belly full of blackberries? Because I am basically foraging like a cavewoman every time I spot berries in the wild. My mouth and hands are covered in blood-like stains. Like I committed a heinous crime out there.

What I’m saying is basically that I love blackberries, past the point of acceptability, and this tea channels that. The people in charge of this blog definitely chose the right recipient for this tea. Except they only sent me ONE BAG, which was a little cruel. I’ve had my cup, and now I’m sniffing the mug in sadness. Next time I’m running low on tea, I’m definitely snapping this up.

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type: Rooibos/Black Tea Blend
Where to Buy: Pinch of Geek

Blackberry Cobbler is a secret blend of black, chestnut, Thai, and rooibos teas with dried blackberries and spices including cinnamon. It smells of holidays and home. Lovely blend especially when served with a touch of sugar and cream!

The tea has caffeine but no added sugar. The tea will appear brown from the very real spices added! This is not an artificially flavored tea because it is an actual blend of spices, fruit, and tea that taste and smell of the real thing.

Due to the complex blend or fruit, tea, and spices, this tea is only available in bags.

Banana Split from The NecessiTeas

I despise bananas! I mean…I REALLY hate them! I HATE Bananas! Can’t you tell I’m passionate about my dislike for bananas? Having said that – Banana Split from The NecessiTeas is pretty darn tasty!

I’m not sure if it’s just everything ELSE that went into Banana Split from The NecessiTeas but I’m totally digging it! The Rooibos base ‘almost’ tasted like honeybush and I have to be honest I did a double take of the dry ingredients just to be sure! Once Banana Split from The NecessiTeas cooled at room temperature I noticed the traditional red rooibos flavor more but at the beginning of the piping hot cuppa it tasted a bit different.

As for the other ingredients in Banana Split from The NecessiTeas there are freeze dried banana, carob, and strawberries. I will say that I tasted the strawberry more than the other two ingredients and I’m completely fine with that. I think it kicked the banana back a notch and for that I’m grateful. Then I could taste the carob and that was rather nice. Lastly, the banana came into play. This was a satisfying cup. Banana Split from The NecessiTeas was a sweet, fruity, chocolaty, and near creamy cup, too! For someone who REALLY can’t stand bananas this was darn tasty! The banana ratio was one I could certainly tolerate and darn I say ‘enjoy’.

Here’s the scoop!

Three scoops of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla in a cup come to mind when you taste this blend of dried strawberries, banana chips, and chocolate morsels submerged in organic rooibos tea. The strawberries release their sweet flavor as they rehydrate, the sweet chocolate melts into this dessert, and the banana chips make it authentic. Just add a little rock sugar and a splash of milk for that creamy, dreamy dessert without the calories.
