drank French Toast by 52teas

Fourth tea today. Because I’ve come to the realization that I have too much tea in my stash now, I’m trying to try at least 4 teas a day. More if I start early enough or it’s something that I end up not being able to drink because of reasons. Lol.

Dry I get a cinnamon, spicy, vaguely reminds of french toast. But since I only put sugar and cinnamon on my french toast, I don’t associate maple with it. My Mom puts maple syrup on her’s though. Lol.

So maybe my palate is broken. Or just had it with all the tea I’ve had today because I don’t get french toast out of this at all. All I get is a cinnamon-y, maybe some other spice, tea. No bready/eggy/maple/whatever sort of flavors. I added some brown rock sugar since I felt it might’ve gone better than my usual Truvia and all it did was make it a bit sweeter cinnamon tea. Lol!
I don’t know what to think about this. /frowns/ I’ll probly end up tossing this in my swap/sell bin since I just don’t think this tea is for me.
Thanks Cavocorax for tossing this in for me to try.

That’s a shame! I think this is a great concept for a tea. I wonder if anyone else makes something similar! I’d love a good french toast tea!

It definitely seemed like a good idea for a tea. Still does really and maybe this tea is the best example of it. I’m thinking it’s just me though since everyone else who’s tried this tea seems to get french toast out of it. Lol.

We’ll I’m definitely with your Mom on the maple syrup & FT. Maybe we should trade :)

Teas, not Moms.

I wanted to cut soda out of my life, so I started drinking more tea. Now I’m quickly becoming addicted. But that doesn’t seem like so bad of a thing considering all there is out there to try.

I started with blacks, but oolongs are quickly becoming my new favorite. Unfortunately, I haven’t really been able to find a green or white tea that I really enjoy. Eventually maybe.

Always open for swaps. If you see something in my cupboard that you’re interested in, feel free to send me a message about it. I do have alot of sample sizes in my cupboard, so there might be a few that I won’t be able to swap. But it never hurts to ask. ^^

Likes – Fruity teas (Peach, Apricot & Pineapple to be specific, but I’d likely be open to others). I’m always on the lookout for a good caramel tea too…and a vanilla one. Or any sweet, dessert teas.
Oolongs and Blacks over any others.

Indifferent/Undecided – White teas are a bit delicate for me but I’m not opposed to trying something new. I haven’t yet found a green tea I like since I dislike vegetal flavors, but there has to be something out there. Coconut can be too strong, or alright depending on the tea.

Dislikes – Spicy/chai stuff not so much since I can’t seem to get past the spice taste to anything underneath. Anything overly astringent, though I can’t imagine anyone /liking/ astringency (but I’m probly wrong. Lol). Earl Greys, heavy florals, tart/sour teas, rooibos heavy, mint of any sort, vegetal, musky/leathery, citrus, hibiscus, coffee-esque flavors, lemon.

Allergies – Mangos, some nuts especially walnuts, cherries. Rose petals/heavy rose teas make me ill though it’s not an allergy so to speak. Heavy artificial flavors also make me ill.

Brief ‘How I rate things’ scale:
(Subject to change at any time. Lol)
100-80: I’d definitely reorder this/Keeping this in my cupboard.
79-50: Possibly reorder these. Either if there’s a sale or I’d consider swapping for it’s on a list and I don’t see anything else.
49-40: It’s alright. Glad I tried it but I won’t be ordering/reordering this.
39-20: Glad I tried before buying ‘cause I’d be ticked if I bought this. Ick.
20-lower: UGH! Get it away!
