The Review – Harney & Sons Cinnamon Spice Tea

image

This tea people. Gawd. This tea is so good. With Ottawa’s spring/winter/spring weather thing going on, I am still indulging in some of my favourite winter teas from time to time. Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice is the boss of my winter tea collection. I could drink just this tea until the end of time and still be in love with it. I ask for it every year for Christmas and my family kindly indulges me. And according to Harney & Sons website, I’m not the only one in love with this tea: it is their most popular flavoured tea worldwide.

The Review – Teavana Peach Tranquility

image I don’t have too many teas from Teavana to be honest, mostly because there isn’t one very close to me. Their brand is like a grown-up David’s Tea, minimalist and modern, which is very appealing. That sophisticated vibe extends into their blend selection, with most including dried flowers or fruit, but no jelly beans or sprinkles in sight. Teavana is a great place for when I want to pretend I am a grownup who has their shit together. Continue reading
