First off, thank god I am alone in my home because I am pretty sure I look like a psycho. I literally cannot stop smiling as I go through all the surprise teas MissB sent my way. There are so many ones I have been DYING to try! It is like she knows…I think she might be inside my head :P. Anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH MISSB!!! I don’t think I will ever be able to thank you enough for your generosity.

On to this tea…

This has been in my sample box for a few weeks now and today when I opened it up to send some to Josie Jade, I decided to give it a try myself. The smell of the dry leaf was wonderfully cinnamon and maple. The taste is very similar. It is like having a thick slice of French Toast (that got a good dash of cinnamon in the batter) with maple syrup. Frank really does know how to blend a delicious breakfast tea.

Actually, I worried this would be the exact same as Pancake Breakfast but it is quite different. This has less maple and the mouthfeel is not as thick. Plus the cinnamon really sets the two apart. As much as I love Pancake Breakfast, I think this is a tea I could drink more often as it still captures the breakfast taste without being as dense (which of course is part of the charm of Pancake Breakfast but hard to drink everyday).

Oh and for anyone wondering, I used 2 tsps for 16 oz of water and brewed the tea for two minutes in water that was slightly below boiling. Came out quite well!

I have an unopened sample of this that came in the 12 days of Christmas package, if you’d like it!

VariaTEA

That is very sweet but I actually have the 2 oz package. That should keep me satisfied for a while.

Oh good! glad you scooped it up while it was available!

I’ve been wanting to try this flavour in the worst way!

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.
