Kenneth Ave Advent Calendar – Day 23

I opened this and was immediately not looking forward to it. I hate when teas try to promote wellness in some way. And I find it even worse in an advent calendar tbh. I just feel like advent teas should be fun and festive and whimsical and “immune booster” is none of those things.

When it comes to taste, its fine. It is actually less offensive and in-your-face than most other wellness teas. It’s slightly herbal but more than anything it has the softest generic berry flavor. It’s not bad as far as wellness blends go but also not good enough that I want more.

Agreed haha. Immune booster in an advent just seems insane.

VariaTEA

Right?! I suppose being a small business they maybe didn’t have other blends? But I am pretty sure I have seen they have a S’mores tea and I haven’t had that here.

Courtney

Aw, s’mores could’ve worked as an advent blend!

VariaTEA

Definitely better than this tea or another one they added – Sleep Well

Courtney

Oh wow haha. I have a roll-on essential oil from Saje called Sleep Well — I know I wouldn’t be excited about it as an advent. :P

The T2 advent has had Sleep Tight and Tummy Tea. :/

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
