After so many flavoured teas that didn’t really work out yesterday, this tea is such a relief this morning. Each day that goes by in my life with tea, I’m finding more and more often I reach for unflavoured or in this case, as naturally flavoured as possible.

Last time I had this I decided that the next time, my last cups worth, I’d pick out the pecans to see if it worked better for me, and YAY, it did! I don’t know that I’ve ever altered a tea like that haha, but in this case I really do prefer it. I’m quite sensitive to sweet anything and perhaps the pecans along with everything else here just put this one out of my sweet enjoyable range. I am so thrilled I can enjoy this tea sans pecans though :)

And this is a sipdown.

I’ve also been leaning more toward unflavored/naturally flavored teas lately. I think drinking a lot of different kinds of teas has helped me appreciate the subtleties in flavor rather than artificial or candy-like flavors.

Yes exactly! I have very few artificial teas that I like at this point, and I’m appreciating more and more the same subtleties in flavour, especially recently in straight black teas.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
