Thank you MissB for sharing this tea with me! I decided to try it out because I assumed it was caffeine free and thus a good tea to try at night. Although this tea is sweet and sort of cake-y, I am really not getting Red Velvet. This tea is sort of just a sweet rooibos – nothing special and kind of nondescript. It is a pleasant enough cup but once the sample is gone, I doubt I will miss it, or even really remember it all too much.

On a different, but sort of related note: Out of the three teas I tried today sent to me from MissB, I managed to somehow spill two of them on my crotch while sitting cross-legged on my bed. The first tea, Eight Candles, ended up spilling out when the cup turned sideways and I did not notice until it spread over a fair bit of my bed and got really warm on my legs. So I ended up washing all of my sheets and my mattress cover. I then put the clean sheets on my bed and sat down to enjoy some more tea and do some more readings (code for procrastinate by watching Supernatural on Netflix). When I went to pour this tea from my timolino to my mug, something weird happened, I still am not sure what, and I again got tea on my crotch and my freshly cleaned sheets :(. At least this time I was able to put a towel between the sheet and the mattress protector before it soaked through. Nonetheless, today has not been a good day for having my mug near my bed it seems.

Holy moly, what a soggy day. I hope that at least some of the teas you tried today were better than this. :$

Eight Candles was delicious! I am hoping to test out some of the Tea Desire teas tomorrow.

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.
