Hello menthol. Just made this iced and it is alright but still not my favorite. Berry and medicine. It’s nice to revisit but I am glad I have a small sample size.

Made this as an iced tea and it is actually awesome. I worried the white tea would get soapy but somehow this remains buttery. The citrus is bright and crisp and cranberry keeps things sweet. I might be crazy but there is also a brown sugar note here that is coming from…I don’t even know where but I like it. I will definitely be drinking this iced again. Plus, I will be drinking it more often because this really is a good tea.

drank La Pomme by Fauchon

Oh powder tea, you are ever so strange. So fine yet flavorful. This is like a floral apple tea and though the base is present, it is not bitter. Like many other french teas, I want more flavor and less base but this is not too bad. The rest of this tea is cold brewing overnight and we’ll see how that goes. At this point, I am okay saying goodbye.

Like I said yesterday, now that my second swap with Arby has arrived, I should probably start drinking up the teas from our first swap. As far as the Disney teas go, I think this is one of my favorites because it’s got a really nice mango flavor. The base, though a little vegetal, compliments the flavoring and though it’s not the best tea ever, it’s pretty good.

drank Strawberry Shake by DAVIDsTEA

Well I made this as a latte and though it had a hint of strawberry milkshake flavor, it was just too subtle. Add to that that I am not 100% sure my milk wasn’t going bad because (1) I can’t smell sour milk and (2) when I poured this out of the milk frother, it seemed to come out in chunks. Between that and the barely there flavor, this got dumped.

I put this in the iced tea press this morning and though it was nice earlier, the time continuously steeping has not served this tea well. Now there is a bitterness that is overshadowing the other flavors and that’s sad. So Note to self: Don’t let this sit all day.

drank Spiced Blackberry Citrus by 52teas

I put this in a travel mug and it tastes like a Christmas tea between the citrus and spice. Alas, the blackberry flavor that sets this apart was all consumed by the mug itself leaving me saddened that this is how we say goodbye.

The dry leaf of this last night when I set it up to cold brew smelled like my beloved Della Terra chiffon teas. However, despite not tasting like those teas, this does taste incredibly familiar. It took me a minute to place it but once I did there was no denying that this tasted like a honey lemon halls with less menthol. Don’t know if that’s good or bad tbh.

drank Vanilla Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

Tried putting this in orange juice as per Sil’s creamsicle drink except I thought it was weird to put orange juice in my milk frother so I tried to stir by hand and just made a huge mess and then I brushed my teeth so by the time I drank this it had creamsicle notes but was also super weird tasting and bitter. So basically, I’m an idiot :P

Sil

LMAO. oh you…

I also put it in an 8 oz cup initially but couldn’t stop it from spilling while I stirred so I moved it to a bigger cup and still made a mess and then because I had to run before I could drink it, it got dumped into a travel mug.

As per Arby’s recommendation, I am drinking this immediately. It is one of her favorites and I can see why. This has a soft and buttery caramel flavor, emphasis on the buttery. There is something floral here as well while the base is smooth and has gentle notes of stonefruit. It is lovely though personally I am happy just giving it a try. Thank you, Arby for sharing one of your beloved teas.

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.
