Thank you Sil for sharing. I finished this off with a Homer Simpson donut and it was the perfect pairing. This was chocolate and caramel while the donut was sugary and vanilla. Delicious combo :). With that said, I think I am okay saying goodbye to this tea after the sample I had.

Made this as an eggnog latte and it’s like creamy potpurri. Gross.

I made this. Then I made 2 other teas. Then I made dumplings. Then I ate the dumplings. Then I drank this tea. Well, somehow that brought out the mango.

This is starting to show its age as the strawberry flavor is more subtle than it was in the past but it is still a lovely tea. Should probably start drinking it up now.

How old is your batch? I just bought some online around Halloween but haven’t opened it yet so I guess I should hop to it either way.

VariaTEA

Mine is from Halloween 2015…I think.

Fjellrev

Ah, guess it’s not a good one to hoard.

VariaTEA

It’s still good. Just losing flavor

drank Are You Nuts? by TeaTaxi

Well, this is certainly nutty. Very, very nutty. The coconut seems to be lingering in the bottom of the sip while the other nuts, specifically the hazelnut, is hovering at the top. In the middle? A hint of pineapple. The base is also present and slightly vegetal which seems to compliment the nuttiness of the tea. It’s really quite tasty. A rich treat though maybe not one I would reach for often since it is a very specific flavor that you are either in the mood for or not.

Note to self: 5 minutes is too long to steep this! The base takes over leaving a hint of popped rice under an astringent black tea. We’ll see how this does when brewed properly because I am sure this is not representative of how this tea actually tastes.

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.
