Had this as my dessert latte last night and it really was quite nice. It was like a delicious poached pear a la mode. Rich cinnamon warmth, juicy pear sweetness, and a dash of creaminess from the milk. Yum!

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas

This was definitely the better of my two morning teas…by far. For one thing, it’s not curdled so that’s an infinite step up. However, even if that weren’t the case this tea is just always a pleasant cup. It’s rich like a black tea but has some awesome flavor notes most typically found in white teas (hay immediately comes to mind but there are others in their for sure).

Tried to make this as a latte this morning and that was a whole lotta nope cuz I got a mouthful of milk chunks. That’s right…milk chunks. I took a big ole’ gulp of curdled milk. Blech!!

VariaTEA

You can say that again!

That is super gross. My Mother in Law has done the same this with her hibiscus teas so you are not alone.

VariaTEA

I thought I was safe cuz this is hibby free but I’m thinking it was the pineapple that curdled it.

I get raspberry and I get cashew butter but jam s missing for me and that’s the component I was most excited about. Oh well.

So I got this in the Amoda box and I gotta say that all these herbal teas taste the same to me. Honestly. I wish I could tell them apart but I just can’t.

drank Dark Rose Hearts by Octavia Tea

My tea twin Roswell Strange is really trying to get me into pu’erh I noticed. She is trying sneaky ways to entice me, like sending me this adorable heart (which my mom thought was hash so…). I couldn’t resist this so I brewed it up and it’s actually not that bad. It’s not going to be my new love or anything but it’s not as dirty as pu’erh usually is for me. It is more mushroomy but that’s balanced slightly by the florals. It’s nicely balanced and a fun tea but I’m glad it’s just the one cup. Thanks Roswell Strange!!

drank Tropical Ambrosia by Octavia Tea

Apparently I never added this to my cupboard which means I don’t get the satisfaction of taking it out of my cupboard but this is a Sipdown of my sample, courtesy of Roswell Strange. I am getting pineapple for sure but it’s candied pineapple which is not as satisfying as the actual fruit. It’s actually not bad but I doubt I will miss this now that it’s gone.

drank Acai Berry by Octavia Tea
2261 tasting notes

Thank you Roswell Strange for the share as this is one I would not have picked out for myself and I think I would have missed out. This is really a nice tea. The acai is really pronounced though more than a juicy drink, it is coming off sweeter and more jam-like. The base also adds some sweet honey notes which adds to the jam effect. It really is quite nice. I would consider picking up more of this if placing an order.

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.
