Just finished this one and I am already said it’s gone. It combined maple with my beloved marshmallow treat genmaicha and the blend was perfect. It will be missed.

The peppermint is strong in this one today. Limey and mint.

Thank you Ubacat for adding this to the box. I never had one of the Steepster teas before but this was a great introduction. Check out my review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/03/22/genmai-matcha-matsujirushi-from-steepster/

drank Persian Apple by TeaTaxi

I didn’t love this. It was like tropical punch with a big ole dose of apple and the cardamom doesn’t really taste like cardamom so much as it just tastes kinda weird.

drank The Vitaminized by TeaTaxi

Had this at work and I don’t remember it well but it was tart yet refreshing. I liked it more than I thought I would though I guess it didn’t leave a lasting impression.

Got another little sample of this in one of the monthly envelopes. This went down fast and smooth. I didn’t pay much attention but it must have made for a good iced tea seeing as the whole thing was gone in like 20 minutes. This isn’t a tea I would specifically place an order for but I would definitely toss it in the cart if I needed a little something more.

Finished this off today in my iced tea press. It’s good, fruity with a flavor that leans towards strawberry but ultimately forgettable.

drank Wild Orange Blossom by Teavana

I got to revisit this blend thanks to Arby and the GCTTB6 but it seems that I am still just not a fan of Teavana and their teas. Probably for the best though given I hate walking into that store.

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.
