drank Wild Raspberry by DAVIDsTEA

I saw both the flavor and the stevia in this blend and knew that it called for cold-brewing as opposed to a hot cup.

I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying this! It tastes like raspberry and hibiscus, which are perfectly refreshing flavors for the beautiful 70 and 80 degree weather we’re having lately. I do keep forgetting that this isn’t an herbal blend and theoretically has green tea in it, since the raspberry flavor is so strong. The upside to that is that the stevia flavor is also overpowered by the raspberry meaning this just ends up sweet, fruity, and refreshing

drank Cookie Dough Chai by 52teas

The first tea in my tea swap advent calendar so thoughtfully put together by AJRimmer!

This one is such an interesting idea! Impressively, I AM getting chocolate chip cookie dough from this! I can’t say I’m getting much chai, but I feel like that might overwhelm the flavor of the cookie dough anyway? Overall, not bad!

Sipdown!

I cold-brewed the rest of this and it seems like it’s lost the candy like quality I was enjoying in the hot tea. Now it tastes much more like mango, and I’m actually tasting what I think is the passionfruit. It also has a lingering sweet taste that I can’t quite place, perhaps the blackberry leaf? I’m not too familiar with that flavor. Overall, not bad but I prefered it hot

drank Butterbeer by The NecessiTeas

Sample from vallhallow! This one smells like root beer and tastes like butterscotch and root beer mixed together. The flavor wasn’t super strong while hot, but I let part of this cup get cool and it was much stronger! I think this is one that could work well with milk, so I might add some oatmilk when I brew up the rest of this sample

I just tried to make an order from NecessiTeas because they have so many yummy sounding teas and they are out of stock of so many things on their website :(

Yeah, I follow Necessiteas on instagram just to ensure I know when she announces restocks in her stories. Its about once a month and only a few teas at a time from what I have seen in the last few months.

I wanted to follow up the theme of chocolate teas today with this tea from getanzt

After 8 minutes of steeping, this smelled like strawberry candy and tasted like a delicate strawberry hot cocoa. I added a little but of milk to make it creamier, but it ended up drowning out the flavors, so I don’t recommend doing that!

Overall, I wish the flavor was stronger, but what is there is tasty!

Another tea from vallhallow and Necessiteas. This one is pretty tasty too! It’s a nice creamy chocolate mint. I wish they had managed to capture some cookie flavor in there too, but to be fair they don’t actually claim to do so.

The mint is very smooth in this and works well with the chocolate!

This is a sample sent by vallhallow and I’m so happy they sent it over. I’ve been trying to find the perfect chocolate orange tea for a while and this might be it! It has the Terry’s Chocolate Orange distinct flavor and scent and kind of just tastes like someone melted one down. Looks like I may have to place my first Necessiteas order once this is gone!

Sounds yummy!

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. I’m just waiting to see where we end up next!

My preferences are towards black and oolong teas but I love trying new and/or weird teas! I’m finally learning to enjoy green tea.

We recently moved to about 6500 feet above sea level and I’m still trying to get the hang of the lower boiling point! Any tips would be appreciated :)

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
