From Tracie: Yes, Please, Tea For Dessert

Yes, Please, Tea For Dessert

I am going to share the amazing tea I hinted about a couple of weeks ago. It is so good. I've been a tea drinker for a long time, usually sticking with my favorite, Earl Grey. Of course if I'm having iced tea, it is sweet. I have spent most of my life in the South, and that is the only way to drink it down here.

Davidson's Organics sent me a box of dessert teas to try. Dessert is always a beautiful word in my world, and I was willing to break out of my Earl Grey box to try it. This definitely goes on the good choice list.

Box Of Dessert Tea

The last two weeks have been all about tea. Katarina and I drank tea while watching Downton Abbey. I drank tea while reading. I shared some of my tea with the woman who works in our office, because she had a terrible cough (she pronounced it magical tea).

Thomas, Katarina, and I have had a cup every night after dinner. It is our new routine, and it is the perfect relaxing moment before bedtime.

Thomas is not a dessert person, and doesn't usually like sweet coffees or teas, but he says, "Dessert Tea is to Thomas what Chocolate is to Tracie," (we all know how I feel about chocolate) and he is usually the first one at the box to pick out a bag.

Drinking Tea And Reading A Book

Davidson's sent me eight flavors:
  • Caramel Peach with Coconut
  • Carob Mint
  • Cherries Jubilee
  • Coconut Vanilla
  • Lemon Ginger
  • Raspberry Cream Caramel
  • Tangerine Almond
  • Vanilla Cream Spice
There are lots of things that make Davidson's teas a great choice - they are organic, GMO-free, have antioxidants and other health benefits, and they offer over 200 varieties. But the most important thing to me will always be taste, because I am not going to drink tea that doesn't taste good.

If I had to choose a favorite flavor, I would say Raspberry Cream Caramel, or Cherries Jubilee, or Tangerine Almond. (That's not really choosing a favorite, is it?) I don't want to choose. The Davidson's Dessert Teas taste amazing. I always add honey to hot tea, but these teas do not need it. They are the perfect blend of flavors, sweet enough, but not too sweet. Being caffeine free, they are a great way to calm down at the end of a long day.

One other thing I love about the Davidson's teas is less about the tea, and more about the presentation. If you are buying it for a gift, you can order it in these lovely wooden or bamboo boxes that I love. They also have cute tote bags, or regular boxes. I love little touches like that - in fact, if I was ordering tea for myself, I would probably get it in one of the wooden boxes. I like them that much.

Now, for the good news!
Davidson's Organics is going to send tea to one of my readers.

  33. You know how much I love me some coffee. But I've been trying to be better about drinking more tea and less coffee. Less caffeine and all that. But I've never heard of dessert teas and would love to give them a try. Maybe they would entice me to drink more teas. So happy you're able to share these teas with others!

  49. My favorite way to have Tea is to take my teapot out on the covered porch first thing in the morning before the girls wake up... I love to sit in crisp morning air sipping a cup of hot herbal tea. there's nothing better than starting my day this way. just me and the world and a cup of hot tea... It's pretty much the only me time I get...<3
