It’s snowing! And we put up decor yesterday! And Friday I was at a Christmas bar! Seemed like a good weekend to try this tea. However, this tea was really meh to me. Basically a black tea with sprinkles and Jasmine. Not bad but nothing I care to have again so into the swap box it goes.

Made this to go with chocolate chip cookies my brother-in-law made to go in the cookie pocket of a mug my sister bought me. It cooled before I started drinking and I’m not loving it. It’s just sort of cloying without a distinctive cookie taste. Check out the pic here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CWzbk2Itr6r/?utm_medium=copy_link

This was fine. More lime than lemon and more sweet than tart. Okay but not something I need more of beyond the sample Sil shared with me. Thank you!

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
