drank Wild Orange Blossom by Teavana

I got to revisit this blend thanks to Arby and the GCTTB6 but it seems that I am still just not a fan of Teavana and their teas. Probably for the best though given I hate walking into that store.

I really should start reading all the ingredients before I buy because this showed up boasting ingredients such as “star anise” which I tend to avoid. Luckily it was not an issue here as I was pleasantly surprised by this blend.

drank Strawberry Shake by DAVIDsTEA

I grabbed the Malt Shop Collection the day it came out and of the three, this was by far my favorite. Probably because of the three, it is the only one not presweetened with stevia. However, even being my favorite, this tea was merely just okay. It was light in flavor and I found, for once, DAVIDs went too light with the flavoring.

Cold brewed. I always forget about this one but when I have it, it is always delightful.

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA

I made this in my iced tea press last night and my brother was so fascinated and asked if he could have some too. TBH I don’t know if he was more interested in the tea or the press but he enjoyed it. I ended up drinking something else and left mine steeping all night. I ended up drinking it today mostly to get my press free to make something else. This steep is a lot more orange-y than usual. Not my favorite but I think it is just how the leaf plays out.

Cold brew Sipdown

I think my initial love of this tea has dwindled as it is nice but also a generic fruit tea. TeaTaxi has better fruit tea offerings so I think I am okay to say goodbye.

drank Mesozoic Malt by Tea-Historic

Thank you Sil! This was an interesting one since it was brisk and yet not astringent. Instead it was brisk and malty. Somehow I felt like this would wake me up while also being smooth and desserty.

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.
