Thank you Scheherazade for sharing this with me. After really enjoying the Rocket Fuel Cavocorax shared with me, I was really intrigued by the whole collection. This one in particular piqued my interest as it was specifically recommended by Cavo and now I can see why. Instantly I taste chocolate but then notes of chocolate/raspberry sneak in. To me, this seems like a slightly weaker version of DAVIDs Chocolate Rocket but it is caffeine-free which makes it all the more appealing. I definitely will have to pick up more of this in the future.

i like rocket fuel..but i want this tin..almost bought it when i was in chicago last time… might have to see if this is there again when i’m there in a few weeks..

VariaTEA

I am debating about placing an order and sending it to my dad’s place. Scheherazade sent me the three different collections though so imma try those all first.

Sil

unless there’s a sense of urgency, wait until i hit chicago…then if they have what you want, i can just bring it back in my suitcase! I’ll be there sunday and likely won’t get much time to shop sunday night but mon and tues nights are my own…and i can possibly get away wed and thrs as well heh

VariaTEA

But but aren’t the tins going to be heavy and take up space??

Sil

uh the tins aren’t that big… and work is paying for my luggage, so i can always take the big suitcase instead of my smaller “work” one… lol and 5 days of work clothes is minimal in my suitcase anyway… 1 suit; 1 dress and 4 tops. then a whole lot of space since i don’t have makeup and shit to bring hahaha

VariaTEA

lol in that case, bring back ALL THE 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.

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
