Zen from Tazo. . .

I grabbed Tazo’s Zen™ at the dentist’s office without realizing the dreaded mint* was inside it. However, I’m pleased to announce that the mint isn’t the primary characteristic of this tea!

* A note about mint: WHY IS IT EVERYWHERE? Mint is for toothpaste only.

Anyway, this lemon-mint green tea is mostly lemon with a toasty green flavor. It’s like a roasty, nutty kind of green, which is interesting against the citrus-y (and, okay, a LITTLE minty) high notes.

I think this is a nice choice for recovering from the harsh blows of a dentist visit. (I need $4k of Invisalign! And a filling! And part of the underside of my tongue cut! Almost $5k altogether!) It’s very… Zen™. *

* A note about the ™: How on earth can the word “Zen” be trademarked? I imagine it’s just in the context of tea products? No one else can name their tea “Zen,” maybe? Does this strike anyone else as weird?

Anyway, this tea comes in boxes at your grocery store, if you want to give it a whirl! You can enjoy it in your less-messed-up-than-mine mouth!

#MusicandTeaMonday: Summer Lovin’ from BlendBee

Recently I subscribed to BlendBee’s monthly tea subscription and I couldn’t be happier. Each month I receive 2 different teas that I get to enjoy throughout the month before the next tea package arrives.  I love my tea subscriptions. With being a part of the SororiTea Sisters, I get the amazing privilege to try different teas and experience flavors I might not able to.  That same thought can be said with my monthly tea subs.  You just never know what you are going to get and I love that. Gets you out of your comfort zone.

This month I received  Summer Lovin’, a gorgeous green tea blend with a focus on creating a bright and vibrant flavor profile. And does this blend ever deliver on its name!

First sip of this tea and you are greeted with a lush smooth green tea with pops of mint.  There is an undertone of an herbal dried fruit feel that really mingles well with the mint.  Really great blend that gives you a pop of sunshine into your day or night. I’ve been drinking this tea all day and I just can’t get enough.  Fresh simple herbal notes with a green tea mint twist. Just refreshing as they come.  Another wonderful blend from BlendBee!

And with the name like Summer Lovin’. . .we just had to go there!

Hope this review brightened your day like this tea did mine! Join us for more #musicandteamondays every Monday!
