I decided to try this as a latte because I really liked DAVIDs White Chocolate Frost as a latte so I figured this was necessary to get a good comparison between the two. I also hoped that making this as a latte would cut down the excess of oils. However, when I started to drink it, it lacked the mint and it seemed like I was just drinking butter. This went down the drain and the rest of it went into the swap box so anyone interested in trying some (even after my rave reviews) feel free to message me!

Heh. I think both are a wash for me. It’s too bad this didn’t work out – I had high hopes for it for you!

I tried this when my Teavana order arrived about a week ago and I was so excited for it but it is just not good. In fact most of the teas I got in that order went straight into my swap box because they were too oily and overly sweet. I have 3 other teas from that order that I have put off trying so far because I am afraid I will be just as disappointed as I have been by this and some of the other ones I got.

I find there are few Teavana blends I really enjoy, and I have to be prudent when ordering from them. Kona Pop! is still a favorite when I want a juicy iced tea, and I’m loving the White Ayurvdic Chai. The rest… actually when they blend an iced matcha for me, they’re pretty good too.

… and that sucks about ordering and having so little that you liked. It sounds like though you’ve had a few good swaps, which is great!

VariaTEA

Yeah I have decided I am not ordering any more Teavana because they always disappoint. There are very few I actually like too. I gave the Blueberry Kona Pop which is nice and I like Weight To Go! among a couple others

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 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!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. 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, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

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.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
