Oh maple tea, you are still deliciously maple even though you’re well over a year old. The white/green tea flavor comes out slightly but more than anything it acts as a base to highlight the maple flavor.

drank Coconut Breeze by Harlow Tea Co
4046 tasting notes

This tea was so thick that it moved like jello so I was worried that the coconut in this would come off a little lotiony. However, it wasn’t lotiony because it wasn’t even present in the flavor. Lemongrass is what takes over here. Lemongrass and a bit of the vegetal base, along with a slightly creamy texture, as such it had a real Island vibe to it.

drank Chocolate by India's Tea

Latte Sipdown (355)

I didn’t love this one. It wasn’t bad per se but it’s a little lacking. I found the tannins in this to be quite strong and any chocolate flavor is weak. It’s sort of there but mostly this tastes a little more dirty than delicious. Nevertheless, thank you Arby for sharing this with me. It is always fun to try new things, even if they don’t always taste amazing.

I was going to write a Sororitea Sisters review about this tea but I am sleepy and couldn’t really think of an entire blog post worth of stuff to say. It’s roasty and sweet. Not particularly caramel-like like Gold Rush was, the other mulberry tea I remember but its nice.

drank Coconut Lime by Handmade Tea
4046 tasting notes

Last year or perhaps the year before, Roswell Strange sent me a three month subscription to Handmade Tea. That means each month a package arrived with a large packet of tea and a wax envelope with the tea’s description. When it came to this tea, I decided to do a blind test and see how my tastes compared to what the company describes.

When I drank it, the tea tasted like a plain assam to me, as opposed to a flavored one. It was malty and smooth until the finish where it got a bit pithy and astringent. My guess was that was because of the “lime” element that I could not detect elsewhere. I also got notes of raisin and stonefruit with a drizzle of honey. I thought I detected creaminess which would have come from coconut but I didn’t get much in the way of coconut flavor.

Thank you Roswell Strange for the subscription!

This tasted like medicine. A bit of a savory bitterness combined with a slight ginger burn that is being overshadowed by sweet. Not as bad as I expected but definitely not something I would reach for again. I wonder what in my SipsBy profile said this would be something I’d like?

drank Carrot Cake Pancakes by 52teas
4046 tasting notes

The first thing I noticed while drinking this tea is that it has the nice spice that I love in a good carrot cake. A nice rounded spice flavor that is kept in check by the sweetness of the carrot. Add to that a dense breadiness coming from the base tea that is more akin to pancakes than cake. With that in mind and since there is also nothing that really reminds me of cream cheese icing, I can definitely see this as carrot cake pancakes. If you want carrot cake, this is not the tea to go with but if you want carrot cake pancakes, then give this a try.

drank Candy Apple by Tickled Tea
4046 tasting notes

This is preferable hot over iced and comes off a lot more liked a baked apple tea as opposed to candy apple. As such, it is roasty and cinnamony and comes off a lot more like a fall/winter blend than a summery candy apple treat.

drank Ginger Cola by 52teas
4046 tasting notes

I’ve been hoarding this tea. A whole large packet sealed in my stash since January. However, I need to work on drinking this down because it is already showing signs of flavor deterioration. Slight but there as the ginger doesn’t have quite the same burn as the taster pack I had before it.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
