4097 tasting notes

This was never added to my cupboard count so I am back up to 341 (technically more since the 12 teas of Christmas arrived yesterday) but that’s okay. I made this as an eggnog latte while simultaneously setting up a chocolate milk cold brew of Candy Cane Crush. This really is one tasty eggnog latte and I think because it is two beloved childhood flavors – cotton candy and bubblegum, which is the flavor I sometimes get from eggnog lattes. Yum!

So what you’re saying is, that I’m still 300 less teas than you ;)

Don’t rub it in! lol

Ok – I’ve been gone for too long. “chocolate milk cold brew”? Are you actually cold steeping Candy Cane Crush is chocolate milk? or have I missed something – and this is getting lost in translation?

aha, I am guessing chocolate milk cold steep of Candy Cane Crush. Has there been an eggnog cold steep of anything yet and if so, how did it work out?

Dexter

You can cold steep tea in milk?!?!?

VariaTEA

Lol that’s what I’m trying to find out, Dexter

Dexter

Please let us know how that works :)

Now this would be a major breakthrough, a new frontier in tea life altogether.

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
