I thought I was in the mood for this tea but I am just so full that I can’t handle all the caramel corn sweetness that this is. Just too much.

drank Marabout by THE O DOR

Having this as a hot latte (well, warm I guess since it cooled a lot) and though the rooibos is present, when I paid attention to the sip, I realized it was like 65% caramel and 35% base. Apple pops up now and then but isn’t as prominent as you would expect from an APPLE caramel tea. I don’t know if I am bothered by that though as this is still quite nice. Thank you Sil for sharing :)

drank Rhubarb Spritzer by Tealish

This is significantly better iced than as a cold brew and even greater as a teapop. The cloying sweetness of the cold brew is gone and there is a hint of fruitiness I can make out as rhubarb if I concentrate on that notion. Mostly though, it’s a generic apple/fruit flavor and the taste of carbonated water. I have probably one more cup of this left and I think I will try it hot but I am just not loving this one.

Used this in my smoothie and I didn’t notice it at all. Oh well. Smoothie was good though.

drank Vanilla Nuts by NosThes

I have owned this tea for a long time…as in 3 years or so. It is actually the first tea I had as a bubble tea/bubble tea latte and I loved it. When I moved back to Toronto, my roommate and I actually split what we had of this so for the longest time it was just hiding in an unmarked plastic bag shoved in the darkest corner of my stash…until today when I was trying to think of what would go well with peanut butter and vanilla pudding and I remembered this tea. Turns out it was a great call because this tasted like a milkshake dessert. Creamy but with a nutty/baked goods flavor. And, the frozen fruit really took a backseat to the tea and other components in the smoothie which is actually quite unusual. All in all, I was pretty happy with it and this tea is still delightful.

What kind of vanilla pudding are you using?

VariaTEA

the sugar-free jello brand one. I am dieting so I wanted to find something to thicken the smoothie that is allowed on the diet hence the pudding. It is actually pretty good.

I have an interview tomorrow so the last 2 days I have been shopping for interview clothing/shoes. Unfortunately, it has not been going well. Apparently if you are plus size, it is impossible to get plain black dress pants or a professional looking dress. Seriously, it was impossible. Plus, the saleswomen I encountered were rude so that did not help the situation. Then today, I went in search of a sensible work shoe and apparently those don’t come in size 10. Yeah, it was not a fun experience but in the end I found enough to scrape together a decent ensemble. Hopefully the interview goes better.

With that said, when I came home, this tea seemed necessary. I iced the blend and as I sipped on it, I did get a nice caramel chocolate flavor. Alas, the rooibos base was just as present as the flavors. It was a battle in my cup and no one was winning. Also, the picture for this tea shows chocolate and blueberries while the description says chocolate and pineapple. Not getting any of those fruity flavors.

Sil

that sucks. Sorry you had a hard time with shopping.

Super Starling!

Those professional black pants are a nightmare. They cannot handle my glorious pear shape. I’m a skirts girl through-and-through when it comes to grown-up workwear.

I ended up with a skirt ultimately but even that was difficult to find

I am super picky about pants. I can usually find some I like, but it always takes forever.

I figured Raspberry Mousse au Chocolat would be quite tasty but I think I am just not a lover of raspberries in smoothies. I used this tea for its strong and rich flavor but the frozen raspberries really fought this for center stage. It was an interesting dessert type tea/smoothie since it wasn’t really sweet but it was fairly reflective of true Mousse au Chocolat, if the chef preparing it went overboard with tart raspberries.

drank Tropicalia by DAVIDsTEA

Made this as a smoothie with vanilla pudding and frozen strawberries, mangos, pineapples, and peaches and it worked out to be a creamier piña colada. Quite lovely and definitely the sweet and filling treat I needed.

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.
