I tried making this one iced but messed up all the measurements so it turned into a watery mess. I would be sad about ruining the last of the sample Sil gave me (thank you!) if I didn’t have some of this on the way.

So when Sil gave me the sample of this tea she told me I had to have it with just a touch of maple. I don’t usually sweeten my teas though so when I poured, I didn’t know when to stop and I may have added too much. And by that, I mean I definitely added too much. This is one cup of sugar and it is just too much. This got dumped and I will try again. Thank you Sil!

Sil

LMAO. SPLASH of maple syrup..like uh less than 1/4 tsp to a 12-16oz cup

VariaTEA

Haha yeah. It tasted like I put in a tbsp.

drank Maple Taffy by Bayswater Tea Co.

So I am super confused by the popcorn in this blend because I don’t really think it adds anything. With that said, this is still a very nice maple tea. It has cinnamon in it which couples nicely with the sweet maple. I enjoy it and wouldn’t turn down a cup if offered but I don’t think I would seek it out either. If I am being honest, if I were to get any maple tea from Vancouver it would probably be Maple Seduction from Steam but this is a pleasant alternative and one I am very grateful to Sil for the chance to try.

One of the flavors listed is “salty” and sadly that is sort of accurate. It is not as offensive as that may sound but it is also not for me. Thank you Sil for the chance to try it but I will pass on this in the future. (163)

Auch, sorry that the salty wasn’t your “cup of tea”. ;)

Oh TWMB, I am a fan. You are sweet and fruity and have lovely notes of pastries and baked bread. You will be missed but I plan on re-adding you to my cupboard soon. Thank you Cavocorax for introducing me to this tasty tea. (164)

Every time I see someone mention this, I lament that I have yet to try it! It sounds glorious.

VariaTEA

I would definitely recommend it.

This tea definitely has a floral element. Floral and leather. Pleasant but not my favorite. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the opportunity to try it so thank you Sil!! (165)

Lemon? Check. Cake? Check. Light airiness? Check. This is definitely a solid tea and one I would pick up if I saw it in store (though I wouldn’t go out of my way to look for it). Thank you Cavocorax!! (166)

I figured out what the weirdness is at the end of the sip…it’s a touch of smoke. Otherwise, this is sweet and chocolatey and very delicious. Thank you Cavocorax for sharing. I really enjoyed this tea. (167)

Thank you Sil for the chance to try something new but I really didn’t like this tea. I found it oddly dry. Hopefully Cavocorax has better luck with the sample.

drank Queen of Tropics by RiverTea

This is the last of the samples I stole out of Cavocorax’s Rivertea tins. Usually this is one I would overlook for sure but it smelled so good I grabbed a tsp just to try it out. It is a really nice tea. Smooth black base that really allows the juicy citrus flavors to shine. It is nice though not a flavor I personally reach for often so I don’t think it’s one I would buy myself but I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a nice citrus tea. Thank you Cavo for the opportunity to try it :)

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.
