So I feel dumb. I literally spent like 10 minutes try to slice out tiny labels using a knife because I forgot my craft scissors downstairs. Only after I finished did I remember that in the very same knife block, from which I grabbed the knife, there was a pair of kitchen scissors! Oh well, everyone has stupid moments now and again. C’est la vie.

Anyways, I am slowly getting through the surplus of this MissB sent my way. Also I might have taken advantage of large swap packages and hidden a few cups worth of this inside. There really is not much to say about this cup, it is simple and mellow and not bad to have every now and again. At the end of the day, it is pretty boring though and I doubt I will remember it much when it is finally all gone. Nonetheless, thank you MissB! Your generosity truly knows no bounds :)

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.
