Thank you jump62359 but I am really not loving the rose in this cup. The sip starts with a creamy vanilla strawberry flavor however the rose kicks in at the end and leaves a drying taste in my mouth. It isn’t horrible but not great either. I am still grateful for the chance to try it.

Thank you NayLynn for sending some of this my way. The marshmallow in this is what caught my eye but sipping on it now I am grateful I didn’t buy a pouch. This isn’t bad, but it is not something I want all that much of either. It is fruity with different flavors (such as orange and strawberry) popping up with each sip but the base is really what you taste the most and I am just not that into it. I am happy for the chance to try it though :)

Now this is peach done right! It is peachy and delicious but not over-the-top sweet. The base is smooth and buttery while a nice hint if vanilla finishes up each sip. So, so good! Thank you Dustin for the chance to try this out!!

Does this get an entry into Project Peach 2014? Should Anna be alerted?

VariaTEA

I am pretty sure she has already had it and enjoys it a lot :)

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA

This is definitely peach but as a cold brew, their is just an unforgiving sweetness that won’t let up and thus ruins the whole experience. One or two sips is tolerable but a whole cup or two is just too much so this won’t be a restock

Oh Good Luck!

Thanks guys although it turns out what I really needed luck with was getting to the interview. Somehow my GPS managed to reroute me to the location at the other side of the city only for me to realize too late, freak out, call my interviewer and reschedule, and then cry alone in a parking lot just from the stress of missing the interview. So now that is over and I am back home.

Christina

Aww, that’s awful. I hope it works out.

caile

Oh no, that’s too bad. Hoping the rescheduled one goes well! : )

Toronto’s really awful that way. As a result of amalgamation there are tons of streets with the same name in different parts of the city. As well, as we all know there are streets like Lakeshore that become blvd and road depending where you are. Its still a major problem for EMS. I’m not sure if that’s what happened to you, but I feel for you being late for things, missing transportation is a reoccurring nightmare for me. Sorry about your interview. It’s nice that they rescheduled. Best of luck in your search!

drank Almond Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
2333 tasting notes

This. I do not like this. It isn’t so much nutty almond as it is overly sweet marzipan. I am just not a fan. However I am super grateful to Naylynn for the chance to try this.

VariaTEA

It’s okay. If I liked them all, I would be broke so it is nice to find a few that are definitely not reorders.

Stephanie

Hmm, I’ve been debating about trying this flavor. Now I’m not sure…

VariaTEA

If you like marzipan, you may enjoy it. However, I was hoping for a flavor more reminiscent of the nut

drank Lord Petersham by The Devotea

I think my sister is coming around to the tea side since she has been offering to spend time with me going through the teabox (which means she will take a couple sips of my cup when I make it) when in the past she has made fun of me for my tea love. So with that in mind, I am trying the teas I know she won’t like earlier in the day and I will try the others I have left to try tonight with her.

So now I am having my second taste of Lord Petersham. This is very smooth, so smooth in fact, it is almost buttery. And it is malty and sweet though a little more astringent this time around. I am not liking it as much this time around so back into the box it goes but it is pleasant enough and I am grateful for the chance to have tried it.

In other news, Veronica Mars is now on Netflix so I am rewatching the series from the beginning. YAY!

drank Skele-Gro by Custom-Adagio Teas

So this is merely a mediocre chocolate peppermint tea. Nothing particularly special aside from the name. It is enjoyable enough but I certainly don’t need 3 oz, especially when I have lots of Butiki’s Peppermint Patty to satisfy all my chocolate mint cravings. Nonetheless, thank you Nattie for the chance to try it!!

Dustin

The name would have sucked me into a purchase!

drank Lemon Meringue Chai by 52teas

The spices are nicely balanced but something about the combination of lemon and spice is bordering on cleaning supplies to me. And there is no meringue to be found. Oh well, at least this is one more tea I can cross off my list.

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.
