So this is better when your sick and can’t taste the stevia so much. Though it still wasn’t great given it was on the sweeter side, it kind of tasted like cranberry candies. Yesterday I had it hot and it was more tart which would have been better if it wasn’t also more oily because of the chocolate.

Arby suggested this is good for when you’re sick and so I figured now is as good a good a time as any to give it a try. It’s a little vegetal, a little medicinal, and has a bit of a corn taste to it. I might be imaging that but despite it being a very gentle flavor, it is nice. Thank you Arby for the share.

Stevia but less stevia than usual. Fake peach though. Oh well. It’s caffeine free and I still can’t taste anything really so might as well use up the bad stuff :P

Gah! Why do they do that!

After their straight teas came out, I was really hoping to see more blends without milk/white chocolate/marshmallows, stevia, and that sort of thing in it. I just want some tasty rooibos blends with normal ingredients in it.

I dont mind the white chocolate or marshmallows or stuff like that because they’re flavors and you can choose whether that’s something you enjoy or not. Stevia is different because it is a sweetener and basically just disgusting.

I really didn’t like this when I could actually taste it but since I knew I couldn’t really taste things anyways thanks to the cold I figured it was the best time to finish this off. Turns out it was infinitely better with impaired tastebuds though still not great. It was hydrating though so it did it’s job.

My sick tea again today. Doesn’t taste all that great but it’s warm so that’s nice. Also I guess I’m getting worse because everyone started asking me if I’m okay. I think I sound worse than I am so I just keep trudging through my work and waiting for the end of the day so I can go home.

I started my week by booking all my remaining vacation days on Monday. Then I decided to end the black and white photography challenge (thanks Sil for challenging me) by starting a 365 days of tea challenge (again) on Tuesday. So of course today I would wake up sick with the weird pressure in my head, the sore throat, and the runny nose. That means I can’t actually really taste my teas so I’m drinking those I have in large quantities or don’t nuch care for. This is a bit of both and as an added bonus it’s got orange and ginger and other ingredients recommended for colds and sore throats. Unfortunately it seems some of my taste receptors are working while others aren’t so I am picking up a lot of sweet and nothing to balance it out. I’m drinking it because it’s warm and soothing but taste wise, I am not pleased right now.

Hope that you have dispatched this cold and are on the mend. And yay for accepting this challenge! Go you!

This tastes like a chocolate covered minty marshmallow. Yum!

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.
