Thank you BrewTEAlly Sweet for sending this my way. I got so excited to try this tea that I immediately brewed up a cup. However, I never got a chance to try it hot because right when I sat down to enjoy it my sister called to see all the new clothes I bought today and it took me probably over an hour to try everything on. So trying it now, it tastes a lot like 52 teas black base with a hint of milk chocolate, which is not a good sign. I will hold off on rating until I try it properly but if this is any indication of what this tastes likes, I will be really disappointed.

It’s always somewhat disappointing when life gets in the way of tea enjoyment. Hopefully it’s more enjoyable at its prime.

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.
