So last Thursday I was at the one of a kind show in Toronto when I came across the First Edition Tea Co booth. It looked so familiar and I didn’t know why since I never had their tea before but then I remembered I was sent a link to their site for Sororitea Sisters as Nichole/CuppaGeek intended to have them send me some tea. When I mentioned the blog to the owner she perked up and told me how she meant to send us something but since I was there I could just take their sampler pack. My sister was amazed that they handed me $20 worth of product without even asking for ID. I laughed and told her “thats tea people for you!”

This weekend I worked my way through the five teas in the literary collection. This was one of the ones I didn’t love which is heartbreaking because Alice in Wonderland is my favorite book out of the five. Given it was a rose and marzipan tea, I just don’t think I was their audience since those aren’t flavors I usually enjoy. However, I did enjoy this more than expected so it might be worth a try for those who like these flavors. Anyways, check out my full review here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2017/04/05/alice-in-wonderland-from-first-edition-tea-co/

Rose and marzipan sounds like a winner to me. Depending on how it is done, of course.

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
