I have so much and it’s going bad January 21 so daily is a little bit of a necessity

When I brewed this up I had a mild panic attack that there was still soap in the mug because it looked rather soapy. However, it ended up being just the little bits of broken leaf and stuff. I’m at the bottom of my bag and that’s being reflected in the taste. All base, some roast, a bit of rice and that’s about it.

drank Blueberry Muffin by DAVIDsTEA

I actually really love this as a cold brew. I don’t know what happened today but it was so sweet and creamy that I thought I combined it with strawberry yogurt parfait. Except…its got a distinctive blueberry flavor. No clue what the secret here was but today instead of blueberry tart, I would have called this blueberry pie and that’s even better than a muffin.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Made this as an eggnog latte and despite it smelling of astringent black tea when steeped, the end result is more of a bubblegum flavor. I have no idea why but that’s what has happened today. Maybe it’s my tastebuds that are off and not the tea.

drank Nostalgia by Liquid Proust Teas

Think I brewed this wrong because it is sort of a plain black tea. Bland and generic. Though, I think that is on me and not a reflection of the tea so we will see how subsequent brews go with this in the future.

drank Krampus Brew by Handmade Tea

Made this as an eggnog latte and it helped to bring out the cherry flavor slightly that was missing from the plain brew. I think it is because it toned down the base tea leaving just a touch of smokiness. Thank you for signing me up to this fun subscription, Roswell Strange!!

Krampus brew?! What a fun name!

I got a sample of this from Kittenna and unfortunately I have not stored it all that wonderfully so this is mostly just black tea and a slightly seedy flavor. Still I am grateful to Kittenna for that chance to try this out.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
