Well I decided to make a cup of this tonight as I am trying to work through some teas to get sipdowns and reign in my cupboard. I read my last review and I really liked this. However, I also really liked Forever Nuts once and now I can’t even stand to smell it. Unfortunately, this has gone the same way. Last time I really enjoyed this but I think I have outgrown the nutty, apple herbals because this is just not sitting right. It is weird how you can love some teas one minute and the next, for no explainable reason, no longer like it at all. Also this one has hibiscus and that makes it all the more worse :(

I’m having the same experience with Sugar and Spice! I used to love it so much, and tonight I ahad to pour my cup down the drain. So so weird.

I saw. It really sucks too. I am having the problem with Forever Nuts and I have like 30-40 g of it and even the smell is off-putting. I think I might try baking it into a banana bread or something cuz in theory that could be tasty.

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.
