Before I start, I am just going to leave this here: http://imgur.com/gallery/isIwb. It got a chuckle from me. Have to love the magic of the internet.

Anyways, this tea came to me from Veronica. I would not have ever given this tea a second look, nor would I have bought it on my own. However, it gets a lot of love on steepster and that piqued my curiosity and luckily Veronica was generous enough to send me a sample.

Even smelling the tea, I was already preparing to write that it is not for me and offer up the other cup I have. I am happy to report that that is not the case. This cup has a little something for everyone – spice from the cinnamon, savory from the coriander, sweet from the vanilla, and tart from the citrus. Truly a well-rounded cup. Am I in love with it? No. Will I get more of this in the future? Probably not. But I am enjoying this cup and I won’t have any problems finishing up the rest of the sample. Thank you Veronica for the opportunity to satisfy my curiosity.

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.
