drank Chocolate by Harrods

The taste of this one is familiar but I can’t put my finger on what it reminds me of. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s chocolate. Instead I am picking up a more yeasty or barleyish flavor. Oh, it sorta reminds me of a burnt chocolate babka. It’s not something I’ll be seeking out again but it was fun to try so thank you for the share MissB!!

The cream is great in this. Everything else, not so much. In fairness, I am not a fan of earl greys or lavender so this was doomed from the start. Still, I could see someone who enjoys those flavors being pleased with this tea.

drank Hazelnut Pear by Petali Teas

So I’m just going to start off by saying that this tea smells Ah-mazing. The praline scent is so rich and decadent that it makes for a pretty mouth-watering experience. Luckily, the creamy nuttiness does transfer over to the taste making for an almost caramel-like flavor. Underneath it all, is a sweetness that is more apple than pear for me and though that is disappointing, the tea as a whole is still pretty great.

drank Not So Vanilla by Tippy's Tea

Where is the vanilla today because it’s not in my cup :(

I think that’s my fault though as I oversteeped.

Wow, this is a thick, buttery, caramel tea. It is like a super dense, chewy caramel. It is almost too rich for me, as in this cup is good but this isn’t something I could have often. Still I am so grateful for the chance to try it because the smell alone is worth it. Thanks MissB!!

drank Key Lime by DAVIDsTEA

So I have had this cold brewed, iced, in a chocolate bar, and now hot. So far the taste has been consistent to the fruit with the exception of this hot cup which is a little bit weaker in lime and a little bit stronger in hibiscus (not too strong as it only shows up at the end of the sip but it’s still a tad noticeable whereas in others it was not). It’s nice but I don’t love lime enough to stock this anytime soon.

The tea starts off with a rush of chocolate and then the chili comes through as a slow and smooth burn on top of a sweet honey base. It is really great and I’m glad I got a chance to try it.

drank Kenya Obsidian by Butiki Teas

I am definitely getting baked bread and cinnamon as I sip but the aftertaste left behind is much earthier. It’s quite good but there are other blacks I would reach for first and thus I am not sad to see this go. Still it was fun to try so thank you Kittenna for the sample.

drank Praline Horizon by Butiki Teas

I took a small sample of this from Kittenna’s bag to try and though the praline is amazing, the base is a touch too brisk for my tastes. Still, I can see this being loved by many and I am enjoying the nutty caramel notes in this cup quite a bit. Thank you Kittenna for the chance to try this tea.

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.
