Sipdown!!

Thank you both Dexter3657 and Scheherazade for sharing this tea. It is sweet and fruity but not exactly what I would call Carrot Cake. I am glad I got a chance to try it but I don’t think I will miss it now that it is gone.

Having this cold brewed again and after 24 hours of steeping this is still creamy, lemony, and delicious.

MMMMMmmm… now this is how I remember this tasty tea. Strong strawberry flavor with yummy notes of cinnamon. Apparently dropping the temperature and leaving the tea to steep forever is the key to making this delicious.

Also, I am loving the DAVIDs filter bags. I only bought 20 and I am quickly going through them which is very quickly turning into a reason to either go to DAVIDs or place an order. If I do that though, something tells me the mason jar or a perfect mug might make it into my cart. Must resist the urge to spend money!

Thank you Josie Jade for sharing this with me. I am actually quite impressed because this is definitely both blueberry and creamy. No astringency to be found and just a hint of rooibos to round it out. Definitely a nice tea.

Confession time! I was not expecting to like this as much as I did so I may have prematurely tossed out the leaf. Consequently, this is yet another cup using fresh leaf. It is just so nutty and bready and delicious that I could not resist.

drank Gold Rush by DAVIDsTEA

I picked up 10 g of this which does not go very far and so I was saving it for when I needed it most. Today my tea experiences have been less than stellar and so when I brewed up the cup of Brioche (which I did not love last time I had it), I decided to make this as well so if all else failed, I would know I had a tasty cup waiting.

Luckily Brioche was a success but that isn’t stopping me from enjoying this awesome creamy, caramel candy tea. Mmmmmm… You will be missed Gold Rush, but I am sure we will be together again.

In other news, I went upstairs to make dinner and ended up brewing two cups of tea and making a side of kale. Somehow I forgot to make the actual meal. Oops…

Flavors: Caramel, Coconut, Cream

So you forgot part of dinner..? At least you satisfied your tea cravings :)

VariaTEA

Haha. Yeah. I made what was important though – tea and veggies :P

Now that I am not expecting a sweet cinnamon bun-type tea, I am actually enjoying this much, MUCH more. It is nutty and bready and oh so delicious. It tastes just like a fresh piece of brioche bread. MMmmmmm…

I know! It embodies Brioche so well.

Thank you Josie Jade for the opportunity to try this tea. It sounds amazing. Unfortunately, I think I went wrong because there is an astringency in this cup that is really ruining the chocolate and strawberry elements that I know are there. It is almost creating a metallic type taste that is really detracting from my experience.

Flavors: Berries, Chocolate

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Bio

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.
