drank Totally Nutty by Bluebird Tea Co.

Thank you Dexter3657 for sharing this with me. Sipping on it now, I can’t help but feel like I have had this before. It is actually driving me nuts because this smells/tastes exactly like another tea and I can’t put my finger on which one. With that said, I am not loving this one. It has an almost dry flavor like the skin of the nuts and I guess I was expecting more sweetness than what I am getting. Nonetheless, I am really grateful to have gotten to try it. One more tea to mark off the list.

David’s Forever Nuts? At least I think the two are similar…

VariaTEA

I don’t think so but I can see why you would make that connection.

drank Cantaloupe Watermelon by 52teas

Thank you NayLynn for sharing this tea with me. Mostly I am just getting cantaloupe but it is true to the melon so I am happy. With that said, there are so many other melon teas I have had recently that I would reach for first.

This seems to be one of the more popular Persimmon Tree teas and I can certainly see why. It has a great caramel flavor, just like sipping on a liquefied caramel candy. Delicious. Thank you TraceyC for the opportunity to try it out :)

Thank you Dustin for sharing this with me. It is actually a very nice rooibos tea. The base is present but mostly as a mere stage on which the real chocolate flavors shines. The vanilla also adds a slight sweetness to balance out the rich chocolate taste. Very nice indeed.

drank Goji Strawberry by Cornelia Bean

Cold brewed this with a bit of Lucky Star rooibos overnight. The result is okay though I wasn’t expecting much as I am a lover of neither tea in particular. Combined together, there is a very sweet strawberry flavor (just on the edge of tolerable) and a slight hint of rooibos. Definitely a combination I will not be having again.

Thank you TraceyC for sending along some of this tea for me to try. I have a friend who is always looking for a green pomegranate tea so I decided to brew some of this up for us to try. It is a pleasant enough cup. The base has a slight grassiness to it but not enough that it detracts from the cup and the pomegranate is very faint, but present. All in all, not bad.

Thank you Kat_Maria for sharing this with me. Unfortunately, I am finding this one a bit bland. It is mostly black base, though a bit of the cherry flavor does come out as it cools.

Yeah, I wasn’t so sure about this one myself. I don’t think I ever left a tasting note. It had a nice forest berry flavor going on but it was on the whole somewhat lacking.

drank Hanalei by Lupicia

I resteeped this last night but never got around to drinking it so now I am sipping on it cold. Now, usually I try not to do a whole separate note for resteeps but I thought some would like to know (cough Courtney cough) that cold, this is 100% banana medicine deliciousness. MmmmMmmm. Thank you Dustin!!

How do I order this?

VariaTEA

Hahaha. If it is still on the website when I eventually place a Lupicia order, I can include some for you. Or, I can share some of mine so you can try it before committing to a lot (just in case the rooibos is too much since you tend to notice stuff you really don’t like).

Courtney

Oh right, I forgot this was rooibos. How do you order to Canada? I had a cart going before I realized it doesn’t breach the border.

Courtney

Oh nevermind. I remember now haha.

keychange

Honestly this sounds so awesome, but I’m so scared of rooibos!

drank Plum Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

Sipdown!! (182)

Having this as a matcha soda. It is smooth and fruity but nothing special. It is nice to decrease my matcha stash just a touch as I really do have A LOT and each cup only uses 1/2 tsp.

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.
