Thunderstorm from Tea & Tins #VeganMoFo2016

Today’s Vegan MoFo prompt is all about How It’s Easy Being Green. . thought this was the perfect time to chat about a new flavored tea I just tried!

We’ve been having a lot of Thunderstorms where I live lately. Fall Thunderstorms. There isn’t anything quite like them. So when I saw Thunderstorms by Tea & Tins in my ‘yet to be sampled’ pile I knew the time was right to try it for more than one reason!

Green tea, coconut lime flavor, spearmint, lemongrass, coconut, lemon bits, and calendula petals is what makes up the flavor of Thunderstorms by Tea & Tins. This is a fantastically flavored green tea. I’m not sure why but I can’t get enough of lemon bits these days! Anything and everything lemon I adore as of late! Thunderstorms by Tea & Tins didn’t disappoint.

Thunderstorms by Tea & Tins has just the right amount of everything! The lemon is lush and juicy, the mint gives it a nice minty-fresh contrast, the coconut provides the sweetness and creaminess, and the green tea is a bit on the sweeter side, too!

I had a cup of this hot and a cup of this iced! I enjoyed both cups very much. So much so that I am not sure which I enjoyed more! I guess liking both equally isn’t a bad problem to have, now is it?

Here’s the scoop!

Luna Tea from Moongleam Tea Shoppe #VeganMoFo2016

Today’s prompt for Vegan MoFo is greyscale so I couldn’t resist posting about an earl grey tea!

Luna Tea from Moongleam Tea. I’m not going to lie…I love the name of the tea as well as the name of the tea company! My love for this tea goes beyond the names, folks! The ingredients include Black Tea, Lavender, Chamomile, Bergamot, and Basil. You may already know that I cannot get enough black tea in my life! I start each day with at least 1 (or 5). The Lavender is strong in this flavored black tea but I like it! Chamomile is one of the ingredients I could normally go without but if done right I can enjoy. Let’s just say that the Chamomile in Luna Tea from Moongleam Teas is done right! The Bergamot offers the citrus, juiciness I was craving. And the Basil seems to even everything out nicely.

With all of this in mind I have to say that this blend of flavors awakened all of the senses and put a smile on my face, too! It’s very calming and makes for a peaceful cuppa. I found this to also be a comforting tea – much like a comfort food would be comforting on a stressful day – or a cold fall day – both of which I have been faced with lately. Luna Tea from Moongleam Teas is a pure delight!

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Moongleam Tea Shoppe (Etsy)

This classically crafted tea is one of the first blends I ever created.
Smooth bergamot, coupled with chamomile, black tea, lavender, and basil, gives this tea a punctuating freshness. I have always loved Earl Grey because of the Bergamot in it, so I tweaked it to make it even better!
