I am having this one again since I boiled the water before I figured out what tea I intended on having and this was right by the kettle, staring at me, begging to be brewed. Last time I made this I fell in love with it and though this time it tastes a little different (probably because last time it was made in a teapot and this time in a timolino) I still really like it. This cup, the lavender is more pronounced both in smell and taste but I don’t mind that at all. I am glad to see that upon second tasting I am still a fan and my first reaction wasn’t just excitement over a new tea.

Your reviews make me want to try this! I put it on my Christmas list of teas though, so no buying any for myself.

haha I am glad my reviews inspired you to want to try it. Now I hope that you like it as much as I do otherwise I will feel bad I hyped it up so much and you were disappointed

I’d really like to try this one.. I feel like I’d love it. But I smelled it in the store and it seemed really off putting. Though we seem to have similar tastes so maybe I’ll give it a go.

I smelled it once before and told them to put it away because I also didn’t like the smell but when I asked the saleswoman and she so strongly recommended it I thought I should at least try and I am definitely glad I did.

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.
