If you are looking for a tangy tea Shogun by TeaGschwendner is it! Mixed with the sour rhubarb chunks, dried raspberries, apple with a green tea loose leaf, this is a deliciously tart tea perfect for a spring day. I found this tea on a trip to Chicago, Illinois.
Make this tea hot or cold, both are delicious. When sipping a hot cuppa with this tea, be sure to steep for at least 4 minutes to get the strength of the flavors - unless of course you like your tea weak! Sweeten with honey, if you must.
This tea makes a great tea cocktail, too! I like to mix this one with Boodles Gin. The botanical flavors of this gin compliment the sharp rhubarb and raspberry in this tea. I serve this tea cocktail over one large ice cube and it makes a very nice slow sip.
I rate this tea a 4 out of 5 stars.

This tea is not only one of the most beautiful teas I have ever seen, but it's delicious, too!
The Orange Spice black tea from Tastea Blends is going to be perfect this fall! Warm, rich flavors and scents make this tea perfect for chilly day. I cannot wait to have this tea on a late October afternoon.
Made with black tea, apple pieces, cinnamon bits, coriander and cardamon pods this tea plays well with local honey. I made my cup as instructed with 2 teaspoons and 8 oz of water. I let set for around 5 minutes.
This tea is high in caffeine and definitely a good choice for those who like a strong brew. I highly recommend this tea! Yum!
I rate this black tea at 5 out of 5 stars.

Post it in the comments, I'd love to hear about it!
Over the past semester, my students from South Africa have been sharing their love for tea with me. Their number one brew is this Red Rooibos from Five Roses. A simple tea, no pretension here - but the flavor is great and with a spot of milk. YUM!
Rooibos teas are typically a woody, nutty flavor. You have to really like the flavor, but it has grown on me. I definitely recommend the milk. This is a caffeine free tea that is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals.
Some say drinking 6 cups a day can help with allergies and improve health. Other common uses for a rooibos brew are for skin allergies. This plant is often used in organic soaps to help alleviate agitated skin and rashes.
I rate this red rooibos tea 3.5 out of 5.
