This week has felt sooooooo long and it is only Wednesday. I came home at the end of April and it seems that my family has become reliant on me so even on my weekends I am taking care of them and during the week I come home after being out for 12 hours and then have to cook dinner and clean up and do laundry. I live with 3 adults. 2 of which are home most days, all day. Plus, I had a seizure a week ago. You’d think they would help but they really don’t do much. So tea hasn’t happened much the past couple days. I’ve either just been too tired or on Monday I decided I didn’t want to be the house chef so I made plans and went out with my friends for Japanese BBQ.

Today was an easy evening because I made tonight’s meal yesterday. Yay past me! That meant tea. Yay tea! So I am sipping on this tea from Evol Ving Ness (thank you!) while I rewatch Drag Race some more. I was surprised when I first drank this because I expected a lot more apple than what I got. More than anything I got cinnamon/almond pastry and slightly woody rooibos. I don’t really like it if I am being honest. It reminds me of a pastry I got at the Danish Pastry House the other day – a hoj snegl – which was filled with what tasted like cinnamon custard. I didn’t like that either.

Cinnamon custard sounds good! Haha. Not this tea, though.

VariaTEA

It was not. It was actually cinnamon and remonce.

Sil

ugh. I’m sorry that’s the situation these days. If we didn’t have the kiddo you could totally have come lived with us for the summer for a break haha

VariaTEA

Awww thanks Sil. I’ve escaped to my sisters this weekend so I get to take a break.

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
