So long pear matcha. You made for a tasty addition to my cupboard and though I am sad yo see you go, I really enjoyed my pear matcha smoothie. Thank you Roswell Strange for sending it my way.

Ooh! Pear sounds good for a smoothie! My bananas are finally ripe and I’m stocked on milk and vanilla ice cream so the challenge is now deciding what to make smoothies with. I hadn’t ever considered pear! I’m looking at Strawberry/Banana or Pineapple/Coconut – or possibly putting a dent in the massive amount of Belgium Chocolate & Caramel I want to get rid of… Help me decide!

So coconut was AMAZING in my smoothie when I had it. Caramel was also quite good and clearly I liked pear too. I have not tried Belgium chocolate though. All of those were mixed with milk, a French vanilla smoothie mix, and a frozen banana. If I were you, I would go with caramel just because it is a great way to use it up.

Also, pear made sense to me but I am still hesitant about watermelon. That seems strange but I suppose it could work.

I’m out of Watermelon :) Currently I think I have Belgium Chocolate, Bavarian Cream, White Chocolate, Pumpkin Pie, Cola, Cheesecake, Pear, Pineapple, Coconut, Bananas & Cream, Strawberries & Cream, Tiramisu. I’ve never tried the tiramisu though.

Oh, and peppermint.

The banana matcha is good in smoothies!

I had a peppermint and chocolate smoothie and that was intense. Honestly, coconut was soo good. Cheesecake would probably also be nice.

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
