Got this iced and to-go when I found myself in DAVIDs. I went to the mall to buy gloves and somehow that resulted with me buying more tea. I almost grabbed 10 g of this but tbh, I am glad I didn’t. I remember this smelling and tasting like fruit loops when I tried my roommates cup but today it was grassy and a bit too heavy on the bergamot. Oh well, one less tea for me to dream about.

Somehow finding a way to scrape up enough money to “just buy ONE more tea” is why I need to avoid the mall…it’s also why I’m so unbelievably broke :P
Sorry to hear it was a disappointment.

VariaTEA

It was pleasant enough, no worries.

Roswell Strange

10 oz. or 10g? ;P

VariaTEA

Holy crap, 10 g. Could you imagine making that mistake while shopping!?!

Roswell Strange

That’d be a pretty sizable mistake.

Roswell Strange

God, I can’t even imagine ever wanting 10 oz. of one specific tea…

VariaTEA

Haha. Me neither. Even if you loved it, how would you get through it before it went bad?

Sil

….i can. LB 6 oz…when i still had 3? in my cupboard…and i’m nearly finished

Cavocorax

VariaTEA – that’s too bad you didn’t like it. I really like it hot – I find it soothing.

And OMG, Sil. I guess you can buy that one bulk for a discount?

VariaTEA

Haha Sil, you would be the one to get through such a surplus of one tea :P

If there was a fruit loop tea I’d be all over that ish. In related news, apparently all colors of fruit loops taste the same. My childhood was destroyed upon learning that.

Roswell Strange

Tea Desire’s Buddha Bamboo is my fruit loop tea ;)

Yvonne

Fruit Loop flavoured tea? :P Yuuuck. My brother used to love that cereal, but I never cared for it. Something about fruit flavoured cereals.
Me? I’m more of a Special K or Honey Bunches of Oats kinda girl. Although right now cereal repulses me because I overdid it on eating it for about half a year :P loool

Ana

Oh yeah, nowadays I love Honey Nut Cheerios but I want to try a fruit loop tea just once to take me back to the 80s. lol

@Roswell Strange – I just picked up some bamboozled at DAVIDs. It will be my first bamboo tea so we will see how that goes. (Just FYI, your love of Buddha Bamboo made me want to try a bamboo tea so I am blaming you if I don’t like it :P)

Roswell Strange

Bamboozled was DELICIOUS cold brewed (didn’t have it hot, my sample was too small) – just FYI. Very juicy and refreshing.

VariaTEA

I got 10 g so I will probably just cold brew that and make it hot if there is anything left over. I find I typically prefer herbals cold brewed anyways.

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 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!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. 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, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

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.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
