So I have no idea what sea buckthorns are meant to taste like but this tea sounded appealing so OMGsrsly and I decided to split 50g. Sipping on it now, it is certainly creamy and the rooibos is present but there is another element present which I am guessing is the buckthorn though I can’t quite describe it. This is not bad and I won’t have trouble getting through 25g of it but I don’t think this will be a reorder

I clearly need to send you some of my sea buckthorn tea stash.

VariaTEA

Haha. I have tried two other teas with Sea Buckthorn prior to this (RiverTea’s Dynamite of Fruits and DAVIDs Redberry Tonic) and I still could not describe what they taste like :P

OMGsrsly

I have some sea buckthorn matcha from Dinosara, and yeah. It’s really weird. Whatever the flavouring is in Redberry Tonic, that’s what I was hoping the matcha would taste like. But it doesn’t. :)

I have tried the same Sea Buckthorn blends as VariaTEA and I cannot pinpoint the flavour either.

VariaTEA

Roswell Strange, I plan on sending you some of this. Also strawberry meringue. You will be getting teas eventually. I really should start a list…

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.
