I’ve been working so hard at drinking only teas I’m working towards sipping down that I decided today to reward myself with another tea that I’m not aiming to sipdown any time soon; I just wanted it because I wanted it. So I made this in a timolino with some milk and it was awesome!

I need to start drinking the teas in my cupboard again and just having what I want to have; I miss some of my blends! But I don’t feel like I’ve earned it, heh. I think once I’m down to 150 I’ll let myself drink non-sipdown teas again. This “cheat” was awesome though.

Creamy, sweet cinnamon hot chocolate with a mate energy burst! Mmm! And, I see that this is on the DT website again, so maybe I can stop hoarding?

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
