Mastress Alita’s Monthly Sipdown Challenge
December 2022 → A mint tea

I’ve been drinking my tea mindlessly lately. I’ve probably started ten different notes and never end up finishing any of them. I’ve been enjoying reading about everyone’s advent teas though! We’re doing the Bonne Maman advent and then later the 52Teas’ 12 Teas of Christmas box, but no other advents for me this year. I’m still not quite to my sipdown goal, so I’ve tried not to make any spontaneous purchases. I might break down and buy some Lupicia holiday teas though. Any others I should consider that are only available at this time of year?

I’m finishing the last of this one. Definitely minty but a little watery. I loved the last cup though, so I know this is probably just because I’m at the bottom of the bag.

Flavors: Mint

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Profile

Bio

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist, excessively proud cat lady, and tea fanatic. Thirty-something elder millennial. She/her.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Favorites
Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, red fruits, bergamot, chai spices, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, peaches, plums, valerian root, cinnamon, cardamom

Not a huge fan
White teas, green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice, lemongrass, lavender, hot hibiscus, hibiscus in black tea blends

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
