TWHS Reviews Fashionista Tea

Is there anything better than stylish shoes with your tea?

That's a rhetorical question, by the way...

Enter Fashionista Tea , the brainchild of former TV Producer and Emmy Award Nominee Brenda Dillon Cavette, whose portfolio consists of fashion and design segments. With a college background in Fashion Design and Merchandising, it only made sense to merge her love of tisane and fashion to create eight blends for a divine tea time.

Available in loose tea form or biodegradeable silk pyramid sachets, Brenda shipped me a chic tin - complete with a fashion illustration - of Organic Orange Chamomile sachets for review.   The sachets have a signature leopard print pump on the tea tag; swanky!!

My love for tea was met the minute I opened up the tin.  The inviting scents of the botanicals announced what I was in for, and after steeping for the recommended 5-7 minutes (I chose 7 minutes), the aromatic orange was wafting in the air.

And the taste; bliss in a tea cup!  The fruity scent is mild yet  sweet, and just a touch of honey made it a welcome treat to sip with shortbread cookies. I will now brew a cup of Organic Orange Chamomile every night as part of my nightly regimen.

Fashionista Teas are the perfect way to sip to your health and social consciousness, as they are  all-organic and botanicals.  As a Fair Trade Tea, Fashionista Tea helps tea farmers and their families worldwide by helping protect against land loss, while supporting fair wages for workers.

So if you're looking to welcome spring in a stylish way, host a, "Tea With Style Brunch" and serve Fashionista Tea's collection.  Use the tins as vases to hold posies that coordinate with the hues of the illustrations.

I, for one, will be getting "dolled" up with the gourmet teas, as I give Brenda's gourmet teas TWO pinkies up!

  1. I enjoyed reading your post. I agree with drinking Chamomile relaxing tea. A friend of mine suggested this to me as a healthy alternative to sleeping pills. It worked wonders to me. I read more info about this and now I know that not only is Chamomile good for relaxing the body and mind but it's anti-aging too.
