Last tea of the night! I was digging through my sample bags earlier today was sorting the new samples from VariaTEA out into the appropriate tea type bag for each when I happened upon this one! Of course I had to rescue it from the back of my closet…

Last time around I was getting pretty sick of this one but it’s been a while since then and I’m happy to report that, for now at least, this one it hitting all the right notes once more. Although, maybe it was more enjoyable tonight because I added a twist to it: I paired it with some cinnamon toast eggos and mixed in a bit of homemade strawberry syrup to sweeten it.

I did find the cinnamon in the mug to be the most forefront flavour but the new strawberry/plum duo followed close behind and was sweet, juicy and fun. An awesome way to end a pretty awesome tea drinking day. And I’ve got some great teas picked out for tomorrow so I’m definitely looking forward to that!

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchablah, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually a little over a year ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious, serious obsession.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends.


Saskatoon, SK, Canada
