Thanks Sil for this sample! I think this tea is great. Going by smell, I thought it would be sweet and cakey but when I tasted it I got just the right amount of mint to compliment the sweetness and vanilla. I really like this tea so this was an amazing surprise to receive in my package. Also I just saw your tasting note about how you had it in latte form and that sounds amazing! I think I might be heading upstairs to froth some milk and test that out.

ETA: This makes an awesome latte! The milk brings out the creaminess of the vanilla while simultaneously highlighting the mint. Once again, thank you Sil so much for this sample!

Also this resteeps quite well. I steeped it for 3 minutes the second time and the flavors are still deliciously present.

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.
