First off, these teabags from MissB are really pretty. Especially the Twinings sensation blends. So, even if I don’t love the tea, I can still admire them.

Anyways, when it comes to the tea itself, this one definitely delivers on what it promises. The sip starts with refreshing lime but then quickly warms up and ends on a spicy ginger kick. For those that don’t love ginger in tea, such as myself, this could be too strong but for those who enjoy these flavours, it is a must try because they mesh well together while simultaneously standing out on their own. Thank you MissB for sending this to the wonderful Sil who kindly passed it on to me. You guys are awesome!!

The Twinings, I think, are the best finds so far. Go to the Twinings store in London when you’re there! You can buy them in one-offs.

Of all the teas I have tried, I think I am most wanting to go to the Twinings store which is a particularly weird sentiment because when I think of Twinings, I tend to think of the boring, run-of-the-mill flavors they sell in our grocery stores and not the interesting combinations I have been tasting as of late.

It’s definitely a different experience in England than in Canada. Almost like a different company.

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
