The rest of this is going off to Roswell Strange so she can give it a try without having to commit to more than about a cup given the raisins. I am a fan and I am hoping she likes it as well but we shall see. For my last cup, I am having it hot as I like that the hot cup tends to always highlight the pineapple. However, I have had this hot, cold, and iced and have enjoyed it each way. This is one I will be picking up again soon enough.

Crossing my fingers I like it; I could use a Tropicalia replacement for when I do inevitably run out. Still wary though…

VariaTEA

That’s why I am sending you a small amount. You can try it and if you don’t like it, it will be gone in 1-2 cups.

Cavocorax

Oh – maybe I’ll give this a shot! I’ve been itching to make a DAVIDs order to get a replacement top for my timolino!

VariaTEA

Clearly I enjoyed if so I would say it is worth ordering. If you order it and don’t like it, I can trade you for it or pay you for it if you like.

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.
