I thought about this all day so it was the first and only tea I have brewed since getting home

Evol Ving Ness

And it was a pretty fantastic cup, right?

I wrote a tasting note for this last night but my computer glitched and deleted it before I could publish it. I got lazy and decided not to rewrite it but I’m being lazy st work and decided to just note that this was awesome. Both spiced and tangy and it smelled amazing.

So I brewed this up and sipped away at it happily while watching smallville and eating Korean food for dinner. Tbh I have no idea about any of the nuances in this mug but I do know I finished the whole thing so my guess is I liked it.

I’ve been wanting to try some Ladurée teas. Happy to see a note from you – like a sign when I open Steepster haha.

I might have effed up my first attempt at a London Fog but in the end, it all worked out alright: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/20/shades-of-earl-grey-let-it-snow-from-for-teas-sake/

Apparently I really enjoyed this tea because I wrote two Sororitea Sister reviews on it and didn’t even notice. Oops. http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/02/18/dirty-girl-scout-from-the-necessiteas/

So it seems some taste receptors are working and some aren’t. I picked up on a little bit of the spice and something weird and then there’s just a random void in flavor. I should probably stop attempting to try new teas.

Made this hot for the first time in a while to go with my pancake “breakfast”. I am getting a weird sweetness here and my guess is the blackberry leaf is to blame. Oh well.

So when you’re sick, tea tastes off. Moreso than food. And since today I am feeling okay, I wasn’t sure if the tea would taste off or not. Consequently I decided to make a smoothie but opted to use something I had a lot of in case it got weird. Well, initially when I tried this, I basically just got the rooibos base but somehow that transitioned to a honey-like flavor drizzled over the mixes berries that make up a considerable part of this smoothie. So that’s fun.

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.
