This one was never super “peeps” for me, mostly just genmaicha so I’m happy to finish this one off and move on!

P.S. apologies for all of the sipdown spam, I’m done now :)

Yay for sipdowns!

I hope to find something similar to this soon! I really enjoyed the lemon flavor in this. I’m not normally a lemon fan but this one was sort of a creamy vanilla lemon with the nice breadiness from the muffin. This last cup still had enough flavor to be a satisfying farewell!

I love bakey, cakey lemon flavors, too. My two frontrunning suggestions for substitutes would be Tazo’s Glazed Lemon Loaf and CuppaGeek’s Lemon Swirl (it has a green tea base).

I’ll definitely have to look into those! Thanks for the suggestions!

This one smelled funky when I opened the bag so I decided to just toss it. I’m removing it from my cupboard both on Steepster and in real life, so I’m still counting it towards a sip down haha

Another sad sip down, but it’s time for this one to go! It’s a few years old so it’s losing flavor, especially the bready, bakey flavors. I’m still getting some cinnamon, caramel, vanilla type flavors but they’re weaker, so I will enjoy this last cup and be happy I got to enjoy most of this while it was nice and fresh!

This one is a sad sipdown! I have really enjoyed this tea and hope to find something like it! This particular cup was a lot heavier on the vanilla than the previous ones, and not quite as much lavender. Either way, au revoir, you will be missed!

Most of my old AQ2T samples are opened and that’s why so many have lost their flavor. While cleaning out my tea, I found this one that was still sealed. I opened it up and made myself a cup, hoping the flavor had held up better in this one. Luckily it had! After that cup, I made a pot to share with my partner and we both really enjoyed it.

My first cup was very tart raspberry/strawberry heavy without any creamy custardiness. The pot that we shared had more of a strawberry and blueberry flavor, and much more of the vanilla cream-type flavor that I was expecting. We have a few more cups of this one left and I don’t plan on letting it sit around and get old(er)!

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. I’m just waiting to see where we end up next!

My preferences are towards black and oolong teas but I love trying new and/or weird teas! I’m finally learning to enjoy green tea.

We recently moved to about 6500 feet above sea level and I’m still trying to get the hang of the lower boiling point! Any tips would be appreciated :)

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know! I’m currently updating the cupboard and adding it to my fancy new spreadsheet so it’s looking a little bare at the moment
