Cherry Margarita for Breakfast

It’s hump day and this seems like a good morning to start the day with a cherry margarita.  I mean a cup of hot Cherry Margarita tea.  Are you intrigued?

Our Tealightful Cherry Margarita is a blend of Sencha and China white teas.  It contains lemongrass, pineapple, freeze-dried Acerola cherries and sour cherries. It’s a treat for the senses.  First I notice the sweet smell wafting from the bag. Then I see the colors of the fruits against the various greens of the teas.  I can’t wait any longer.  It’s time to brew.

This green-white blend has a slightly sweet taste even without any additional sweetener.  The taste is light and bright, a morning plus.  The pineapple flavor is quite subtle, enhances the cherry and lingers lightly on the palate.

Ah.  A great start for my hump day.  I’ll bet this is great iced too.  Delicious, refreshing, nutritious, no calorie — I couldn’t ask for more.  Order yours today!

Health and abundant happiness…

Tealightful Vanilla Caramel Chai

This morning I felt like a little spice in my tea.  I chose Vanilla Caramel Chai. With its gorgeous dark golden red color, this black tea has the chai spices you’d expect — cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, star anise, and peppercorns.  My favorite part of this chai is the addition of caramel and vanilla.  For me, these two additions mellow out the chai just a bit.

Without adding anything to it, this tea has a definite chai bite.  I can definitely taste the ginger and the clove.  Since I’m not a big fan of anise, it’s lovely that this blend captures its essence without being too strong. If you need to be warmed on a cold day, this is the tea to choose.

To make it a more traditional chai, consider adding a little milk and perhaps one of our caramel honey sticks.  Mmmmm…  Easing into a Sunday.

Tealightful Lemon Ginger Green review

I’m sorry; I’m not one of those people who can drink hot tea during hot weather.  At least I can’t unless I’m in air conditioned space most of the time. That describes me pretty well during the late days of summer in Florida.  It was on one of these days I tried this tea.

I love lemon and am coming to love the zing of ginger in hot tea as well.  This green tea blend is a great balance of just enough lemon for that sweet/tart lemon flavor complemented by that ginger “zing”.  It is not too grassy in taste, light in color with a fragrance I find quite calming.  I love to open the bag and inhale deeply.

A friend who loves this tea suggested to me it would probably be quite refreshing iced.  You can check that out for yourself.  Personally, I’m enjoying the indulgent color, aroma, taste, and centering of having it hot. It may quite some time before I get around to trying it iced.

Health and abundant happiness…
