I am getting more honeybush with this cup than I got in the last. Curse you honeybush and your prominence in any tea you are apart of!

I am always amazed at how some teas can truly capture the rich thickness of cream/custard. This is one of those teas. Pure custard deliciousness with just a touch of nutmeg to keep things fun. Amazing. Truly amazing. Oh Butiki, you are definitely missed.

It really is a lovely tea. Agree that they are missed.

drank Ripe Mango Oolong by Lupicia

Either the taste of oolong is growing on me or I did something really right because sipping on this is like enjoying a ripe juicy mango. Amazing!

Thank you Cavocorax for sharing. I actually quite liked this. The clove and chai spices provide a nice warmth to the cup (the fire) while the mint smooths everything out and leaves you feeling refreshed at the end of the sip (the ice). However, in this cup the peppermint is definitely the strongest element which maybe doesn’t 100% suit the inspiration of this tea seeing as Ned (the representative of the north/winter/ice) certainly did not win in this scenario.

It’s fun, right? It’s one of my fav Adagio teas so I’m happy someone else likes it! (No one seems to like the Adagio blends that I do… :P)
Poor Ned. I love that this series of tea are all based on Sean Bean dying all the time. :P

VariaTEA

I was worried cuz it’s technically a chai but I really liked it. And yes, I am quite entertained by the Sean Bean death teas. One of these days I think I want to try All the Arrows. If only they came in a sampler pack. Thank you again btw.

This glorious tea is a mere shadow of what it once was. Luckily that makes it easier to say good bye.

drank Kiwi by Lupicia

The kiwi flavor is so spot on that it’s amazing but unfortunately the base is once again just too overpowering for the fruity flavor.

If nothing else, I could sniff this tea all day. The smell is so distinct and oh-so-mouthwatering.

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.
