Thank you Scheherazade once again for this tea. I finished up the last of this by steeping it for at least 20 minutes while I cooked dinner and yet the flavors are still not there. There is a hint of orange but mostly it is just generic and non-distinctive. I am glad I tried it but I am not too sad to see it finished.

Oooh, first thing I’ve seen with that big scary looking “Not Recommended” branding ;) Still want to try this regardless, though. If only to verify that you’re right.

VariaTEA

Oh god. Now I feel bad. Did not even notice that.

I would have sent you the last tsp had I known you wanted to try it btw.

Roswell Strange

Nah, that’s ok ;)

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.
