Tuesday 2/9 So from Starbucks when you used to get free refills on brewed coffee/tea while in house I’d sit around in Starbucks and get “refills” of teabags and just put them in my purse as I would continue drink whatever tea/beverages I had with me. Anyway, this was 2 teabags best by almost 4 years ago, brewed lukewarm and plain.

Wow, they gave you new teabags for refills? Most coffee/tea shops around here think a tea refill is just giving you another cup of hot water for your already used teabag.

I used to buy a regular priced drink and probably some sugary snack then sit and read a book or play on my phone… then yes my free refill of coffee or tea would be Teavana teabags (they’d let me pick from the assortment they had).. but obviously this was years ago, I haven’t sat around at a Starbucks in quite awhile!!

Sunday 2/7 those 12 tin sampler gift boxes I had/have like 3 or 4 of the autumn fruity collection from awhile ago (I think they were a free gift with purchase). This one smelled a lot better than it tasted.

Saturday 2/6 A week ago (1/30) A single sachet from @briannadrinkstea. Classic vanilla rooibos, no frills just a nice 16 oz hot cuppa before bed. :)

drank Turmeric by Tea Drops

Saturday 2/6 A week ago (1/30) I got my lovely box of random tea goodies from @briannadrinkstea in Australia! Some were larger packages, some just a single cuppa but most inside never had before. Tried this first as never had a tea drops before. Dropped it in approx. 10-12 oz of hot water and used a spoon to stir it up. It was just turmeric and coconut palm sugar, just tasted as a lightly sweetened turmeric.

Saturday 2/6 With being so transient lately I am trying to use up my samples. This was from an old sipsby box, clearly a DT forever nuts dupe. Unfortunately I’m not a fan of this flavor profile anymore. This package said 4 servings (meaning 8 oz x 4), I made it in maybe 24 oz of hot water and just sipped it while doing other stuff in the room in the morning.

Friday 2/5 I forgot that this was my third sipdown of the day (well technically #2 and #3 was sweet ginger heat because I normally count by finishing tea not when I make it but I’ll let it go this time). This is a stevia forward dessert tea from david’s tea.. Nice to finish a normal size dt tin (cold brew pitcher at home) although I’m sure there is more of this somewhere.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #42 overall / Tea #9 for February

Friday 2/5 after disaster of raspberry cream pie I had a large bottle of this one (brewed 2x hot plain) made up so that I could have a completely different flavor. Have a few tins left but I
do think there are flavored greens I’d keep in cupboard not this one.

Friday 2/5 3 sachets hot and plain in a 16 oz tumbler. This is from an old box of sachets. I used to enjoy this one but it is soo sweet and rooibos base is not a type I enjoy.. I wish this one was more like DT coconut cream pie which is an oolong base.

#drinkwhatyouown January slot 18/25 (will update when I consult my scratch paper/photos LOL)

Wednesday 2/3 — So today is a double (1st shift one hotel, 2nd shift one hotel)… I drank an entire pitcher [I think those DT perfect pitchers are 64 oz? I drink on average at least one of those pitchers a day plus misc other teas] of cold brew second steeping of @white2tea oolong during my 1st shift. When I was chilling between shifts I wanted to have something hot this afternoon/evening with a different flavor. Grabbed my trusty travel bag o’ tea…another older 4 tea bags from a @sipsby box yeas ago, used two to brew hot and plain in my DT tumbler. This tea tastes like a black tea with some faint autumn spice to it.

Tuesday 2/2 – dumped two DT sample packets in a metal steeper basket to brew hot and plain then sipped it warm on my way to work. I think I might have liked this tea if it wasn’t for that pesky stevia.

Been a huge fan of tea since spring of 2016.

Likes: herbal (tisanes), green, oolong, fruity, lemon, bananas, cherry, raspberry, any berries really, dessert, sweet potato, spicy, smoky, earthy, roasted, chai, ginger, cardamom, lavender, rosemary, sage need to keep adding to this.

Dislikes: stevia, chamomile, rose, jasmine, perfume, floral.

I post here and there on Instagram, need to start posting there more regularly.

I love to share/swap/take in homeless teas… if you have something (even if it’s just enough for one cup – for me one cup is a 16-20 oz size) to share / want to swap / etc. feel free to send me a message. I don’t have any allergies and love trying new things! :)
