drank Hot Buttered Spiced Rum by 52teas
4521 tasting notes

I think the word “Buttered” called to me. No fat in my diet has me craving everything I shouldn’t be looking at. Luckily I have tea to satisfy those cravings and this is one buttery treat. Buttery and with a nice ginger and spice flavor. Does it tastes like rum? No. Do I mind? No. At the end of the day this is a tasty tea and that’s all that matters to me.

They have to remove the gallbladder so I am on standby for surgery. They said there is a 50/50 chance they can do it tomorrow but they said that about Friday and nothing. Fingers crossed though.

Sil

ugh. So sorry to hear that. if there’s anything i can do, let me know :)

VariaTEA

Thanks Sil. It just sucks not knowing since it means I can’t eat/drink in the mornings until noon (if they don’t call by then, it isnt happening that day). Well that plus I get anxious since this would be my first surgery.

Gah! Sorry to hear this, VariaTEA. I hope this is an easy peasy thing all around. Please keep us posted.

This IS stressful. I find doing brief meditations like this one help.

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
