So Cavocorax snuck this into a box of teas she gave me and tbh I have been putting it off because for some reason I thought it might be astringent or harsh. I am guessing either the name or the fact that it is recommended to be served with milk and sugar is the reason for my thoughts but I decided it was time I tried this out. Now that I am drinking it, I realize I had nothing to fear. It definitely is more brisk than what I usually go for but at the same time it is smooth and has a nice hint of honey sweetness at the end of each sip. I added a touch of skim milk as per instructions but realistically it didn’t really need it. Thank you Cavo for sharing! This tea is good, and I will enjoy my sample though I don’t know if this is something I will seek out more of once its gone.

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.
