Tea of the Week for November 11, 2019!
One of my suppliers had some gorgeous Yunnan province grown tea leaves that when steeped, had a remarkable sweet potato-y flavor. I just loved this tea so I needed to get some of it. I wasn’t sure what I would use it for when I received it a few weeks ago, but then I decided that the best way to utilize this tea is to allow it to showcase the delicious flavor of sweet potato!
This blend starts with a base of those beautiful black tea leaves blended with big chunks of sweet potato & just a hint of warm cinnamon essence (no cinnamon pieces here, just a hint of essence to accent the sweet potato). That’s it. Just sweet potato, a subtle undertone of cinnamon & some of the most delicious black tea leaves you’ll ever taste.
Put simply, this tea is remarkably good. Very, very good. It’s also VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free. Oh & it’s very limited in quantity & because of the special quality of this tea, I won’t be reblending it any time soon – so I recommend grabbing a pouch while they’re still available!
ingredients: black tea, organic freeze-dried sweet potato & organic natural flavors

Very nice sweet potato Yunnan tea. You can see the little bits of sweet potato floating in it and the cinnamon is just right to add more warmth and flavor. Without the sweet potato, I’m positive it would still be a delicious cup but the added bits of dehydrated sweet potato, as well as the added organic flavors, kicks it up a notch for me.
Highly recommended. It’s really yummy.
I had a quiet Christmas. I am watching a Russian drama series called Life of a Mistress. It’s pretty interesting :) and a couple of weeks ago, I got to visit my family and saw my nephew again. I was happy to see he was still interested in tea! I brought him another package of a tea he really liked. My brother is doing better, my mom is taking care of him. He’s put on some weight but still dreadfully underweight. It still doesn’t feel like Christmas since I lost my dad awhile ago. I still say “Gotta go visit mom and dad”. Having said that, I still had a pleasant visit… And after coming home, having a beautiful peace and quiet Christmas at home, good movies, and nice tea was great. :D
I hope you all had a great Christmas.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays tea buds <3

The last couple days have been rough. I had a headache that lasted nearly 48 hours. My cat is sick and I’ve had to bring her back and forth to the vet multiple times over the last couple days (and spend $500 on tests/meds). Things seem to be looking up, though. My team at work was very supportive of me going home or an extended lunch to monitor my cats.
Anyway! To the tea! I’ve been anticipating this tea’s arrival since I saw the blog post go up. I love sweet potato, and brewed this up as a nice comforting treat, hoping it would cheer me up. It certainly has! It’s definitely not anything like Sweet Potato Pie by DavidsTea. This is a true starchy sweet potato, with just a hint of cinnamon. It is so wonderful and comforting.
