Got this as an eggnog latte and yet again it did not disappoint. It was like a blueberry custard, both creamy and fruity and so tasty. I am starting to think I prefer the fruity flavored eggnog lattes best because I have been quite happy with the ones I have tried (although tbh, I have been happy with all the ones I tried except Maple Sugar and Salted Caramel).

However, more exciting than eggnog lattes, my very first christmas gift arrived today from the greatest tea twin EVER, Roswell Strange!!! Now before you get worried, it’s only my first Christmas gift because I am Jewish so I have gotten hannukah presents in the past but still this is very exciting nonetheless. Even my mom was excited as she could barely wait for me to snap a pic before she started pulling everything out of the box to finally reveal ALL the elements of an “assemble your own Xmas gift”. She included everything from the bag and presents right down to the tape! Honestly, it’s amazing!!! Just look: http://instagram.com/p/wIbzuUPJZj/

Yay! We’re going to be near a Davids on the 18th and we are already planning out our eggnog lattes. I was leaning towards this one and you just cemented that decision for me, thank you!

Roswell Strange

Ok, I’m going to have to try Blueberry Rooibos now. Here’s hoping the hibiscus doesn’t curdle the milk!

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
