I think I speak for everyone here when I say tea is one of the greatest luxuries in life.
I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons.
I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sale/exchanges. Message me any time :)
My cupboard on here is not up to date. See my stash here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
Most of these are only tiny samples/I can’t always spare any, but feel free to ask.
Rum/alcohol, clove, cardamom, lychee, floral, milk/creamy, malt, hay, rice/grain, toasty, desserty, cocoa/chocolate, earthy, decaf or no caffeine, very unusual flavours
Favourite tea types
Decaf teas (any variety)/no caf tisanes, yellow, jade oolong, white
Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Acidic, sour/tart, melon, grapefruit, bitter, astringent, smokey, sickly sweet (too much chicory, cinnamon, or licorice root), high caffeine, yerba mate, mushroom/fungus, dairy/animal ingredients, stevia
I seem to get a stomach ache from stevia. I don’t consume animal products (sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate chips, whey powder) if I can help it. It isn’t the end of the world if I get a sample with something in it, but I try to avoid them where possible.
