This isn’t valentines day themed but valentines is about celebrating love and I obviously LOVE this tea. I brewed up a huge mason jar to enjoy. I even got my roommate to finally try it (she does not like the idea of flavored genmaichas) and so she is joining in on the Japon love too.

Sipping on valentines day themed teas and wearing a fuzzy sweater with hearts. A wonderfully cozy and awesomely festive evening!

Went for a tasty dinner and had a delicious hazelnut milk tea with bubbles. It was like drinking creamy and delicious liquid pralines. Mmmm mmmm good :)

Strawberries and cream, definitely a valentine’s day treat. Plus, I love this matcha so it was obviously my first choice for my festive day.

So the sentiment might be a bit negative but it is still acknowledging valentine’s day and thus fits the bill.

I actually quite like the combination of mint and vanilla in this one. It is smooth and sweet and has the perfect amount of mint to round out the flavor. Yum!

Flavors: Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

Everytime I see the name of this tea, it always makes me think of the movie V for Vendetta and not anything to do with Valentines Day. Ha ha.

Being in Montreal, somethings tells me I might hear the phrase “Je t’aime” at least a couple of times today and I think that is quite adorable. So of course this tea fits in to my valentine’s day theme. It is smooth and has a delicious vanilla caramel flavor. Delicious!

Flavors: Caramel, Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

This tea smells really great when you want something very, very sweet. However, I find that the chocolate in this makes it a mixed jumble of flavors. I think that is why I prefer Eight Candles as it has the tasty caramel and marshmallow but doesn’t have the added chocolate component.

Happy Valentines Day to all!! I am excited to have a day of festively themed teas starting with this one. Candy and roses, the gifts of choice for many today but honestly I think I prefer the tea – less calories than candy and not as much work as roses.

This tea is the perfect combination of candy sweetness and rose florals. Plus it is hot and comforting on this cold snowy day.

Flavors: Flowers

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

There is a nice creaminess tonight but I am still missing the cheesecake tang I loved in my first few cups. It is still pleasant though.

Thank you Cavocorax for sharing this with me but more and more something about the combination of the flowers and almond just don’t work for me. After this I have one more cup to see if I can figure this out.

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.
