In order for me to get to work, I have to drive by a DAVIDs so usually I stop in on my way there or on my way home depending on what time I work. Since I was working the evening shift today, the plan was to leave early and stop by on my way there however my bed was so comfy that I decided to stay in it as long as I could. Plus, I bought a(nother) gravity steeper the other day so I figured I could easily make iced tea on my own. I was going to make Cotton Candy since that is the one I would have gotten in store but then I decided to try something new that I haven’t had iced and this came to mind (mostly because I could kill two birds with one stone by working on my older teas and having something new iced).

I am actually really liking this iced. The mint is fresh and crisp while the vanilla provides a creaminess that makes this a great dessert type tea. I think this is how I will finish this off because I am really, really enjoying it. Bumping the rating just bit as well :)

I wouldn’t have thought to try this iced, I may have to do that!

That does sound yummy. I have found that both vanilla and mint are outstanding iced tea flavors.

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.
