Woke up early and therefore had time to make tea. This is one of two that I grabbed to take with me. I have been enjoying sipping on this throughout the morning and even now that it’s cold. It’s got a distinct blueberry cotton candy flavor. Artificial but welcome in light of the flavor inspiration which I think it nailed.

Strawberry Milk Latte Sipdown (396)

I think this is the best way I’ve tried this but at the end of the day I just don’t love this tea. The base imparts More flavor than I’d like and the raspberry being tart builds on the base notes rather than covering them. That wouldn’t necessarily be bad but it makes everything feel flat and one dimensional. With the strawberry milk, there’s some much needed sweetness added but overall I just find this underwhelming.

Chocolate Milk Latte Sipdown

So this is good and has a nice spice to it but I have deja vu. All these holiday spiced A Quarter to Tea blends are blending together in one blur of cinnamon and other holiday flavors. They’re good but they aren’t special enough to need to keep around.

ETA: the cocoa and coffee all came through as one flavor punch in the final sip.

This was so good yesterday I made it again today but I think I should have rinsed my Tea press better because this tastes like white rhino + our Palmolive soap. Oops. Not terrible though :P

I made this in the Tea press which it sat in all day cuz no food and caffeine, combined with work stress, is not a great combo. I had one sip at work and that was delicious and now I’m drinking it with my bacon and eggs dinner. Even after 12+ hours I can tell this is awesome. Full flavored like a black tea and yet flavor notes often found in white teas, I.e. corn. Yum!

I really enjoy this ginger cola tea but I find it is better hot than cooled which is currently how I’m drinking it at work.

So good.

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
