drank Nutty Chocolate Assam by Twinings
2388 tasting notes

First day in London and my friend and I have already gone for afternoon tea. I ordered this because there wasn’t a large selection and though I had this and was less enthused than I expected, I thought I could coax out the Nutella flavor with some sugar. What I found instead was though the sugar brought out the hazelnutty goodness at first, this tea quickly became bitter and earthy while sitting in the pot. It was weird because there was no leaves sitting in the tea but overtime it just became muddy. So, try as I may, I think it’s fair to say that this just isn’t for me and that’s okay.

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA

Grabbed this at the airport as I wait to board a plain to Europe. It’s sweet, crisp, and refreshing. Honestly, a coconut ice lolly is captured perfectly and I will definitely be grabbing more of this when I return home. Hopefully it’s still around :S


have a fantastic time!! If you need anything at all while you’re away just get a message to me lol

Have a wonderful time! Take pictures of EVERYTHIINNNNGGG!


I like it too. I’ve made iced lattes with it a few times. Pretty good either way, and lovely to like a caffeine free blend. Have a great trip!

I don’t think I’ll ever get over the smell of this tea. It is just so rich and vibrant. The taste is refreshing and sweet but the smell is what truly gets me each time.

I am actually really impressed because this is 100% gingerbread for me. I was worried it would be just a ginger tea but this is like a liquid cookie and it is delicious. Thank you MissB for the share! This is one I might actually seek out while in London because it is really nice.

drank Champagne Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
2388 tasting notes

Roswell Strange sent me this many months ago and I have been at a loss for what to do with it. Usually I drink my matcha with milk but Champagne milk just seemed like an odd choice. However, for some reason, a champagne vanilla smoothie seemed like it would work better. In hindsight I’m not sure why but that’s how I made this and unfortunately all the champagne flavor is drowned out by the vanilla smoothie mix. Seriously, I am getting no flavor at all and seeing as it’s distinctive flavoring, I should be able to taste something but alas I got nothing at all. Still, thank you Roswell Strange for the share!

I was excited about the raspberry component but not really that enthused about the violet or green base. Still, MissB was kind enough to share so I figured it was at least worth a try. However, I find myself drinking the cup trying to ignore the strong florals of the violet instead of enjoying the sweet raspberry or the tea as a whole. In the end, as fun as it is to try, this tea just isn’t for me. Still, I would like to thank MissB for sending some my way!

Made this as a latte and though the caramel is strong, so is the sencha. Caramelly grass. Good but weird.

Brewed this with cashew milk and it was incredibly sweet. This is definitely best paired with traditional milk.

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.
