So I realized today what I was really tasting…snickerdoodles complete with vanilla icing. Oh so delicious. Thank you for sharing Roswell Strange!! I think I may be taking a trip to Sobeys to get more of this in the future.

I’ve decided I’m gonna mix this into some frosting for cupcakes next time I made them. Either Butter Pecan with Chai icing or Chocolate with Chai…

Both would be pretty tasty. I’m more partial for butter pecan but only because I’m not a huge lover of chocolate cake. However chocolate chai is pretty tasty so I’m sure either would be awesome.

My tea twin Roswell Strange sent me a sample of this and it was sooo good! I wasn’t sure quite how to make it so I put two tsps in hot milk and let it stir in my machine. The result? A super creamy cup of awesomeness. It tasted somewhat like vanilla frosted Cheerios and it was amazing. I will definitely be having more soon. Thanks Roswell Strange!!

Brewed this up and hot, it’s all pineapple and coconut. I think I may let it cool down and see what happens and then I’ll update this note later…

So it’s much of the same cooled except the pineapple is a touch stronger and I get a little more banana flavor. It’s nice but I don’t know if I would place an order just for this.

This is a weird tea because it smells amazingly like ooey-gooey caramel and that’s the first taste that hits your lips. However, that caramel slowly morphs into a rich root beer flavor. Up until that point it is delicious but then the mate takes over and that luscious caramel/root beer becomes wet earth. It’s not mad but I just wish the mate was left out of the mix as that would make this one amazing cup of tea.

That’s too bad they stuck mate in here. I don’t even see why they’d want to add that to such flavour profile.

VariaTEA

Exactly! Plus why combine a caffeine free base with a crazy caffeinated base. It seems counterproductive to me.

drank Boysenberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea

This matcha certainly has a fruity taste to it that borders on berry flavoring but mixed with milk, it is hard to determine that it is boysenberry as opposed to a generic berry flavor. Still it made for a good snack so thank you Roswell Strange for sharing!

I am getting the vanilla and there is a hint of fruitiness at the end of the sip but nothing distinctively passion fruit flavored. There is also a strong woody rooibos flavor. It’s okay but rather disappointing in light of all that’s promised.

This is mostly grass and vegetal taste. Hot, I got nothing but bitterness but as it cools a tiny bit of peach comes out. Unfortunately not enough to combat the base or the rosehip flavor that pops up as well.

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.
