V is for… Vive le Thé!

Made a cup of this for myself and a friend. She’s a fan. I think it’s alright. Sharp citrus note in the back of my throat that I’m not loving but overall it’s okay.

V is for…Vanilla Mint Ice Cream

Thank you Sil!

This was nice but the mint was stronger than I would have liked. It made this a touch medicinal and astringent but otherwise it had a nice vanilla flavour.

Made this as a latte with muddled strawberries. It looked pretty but the flavour combo was a bit weird. Check out the pic here though: https://www.instagram.com/p/CTfccEKr1GW/?utm_medium=copy_link

Thank you Sil!

This is an alright vanilla tea. It’s got a twang at the end from the green tea but the front end is vanilla marshmallow. Not a favourite but okay.

drank Confetti Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA

The dry tea looks cute with the chocolate and sprinkles but all that chocolate comes at a price and in this case it’s an oil line in my latte. It looks like someone put melted butter in my latte and that’s throwing me. However, if you can get passed that it’s an okay latte. Just sort of sweet and white chocolate-y. I suppose it’s a little cakey. It’s fine but maybe not worth the oiliness.

drank Unicorn Fluff by The NecessiTeas

U is for…Unicorn Fluff

I decided to make this hot while I watch Bo Burnham’s Inside and avoiding the work I should be doing.

Hot, I find the citrus comes out more but there is a marshmallow sweetness/fluffiness lingering over top. The ginger is under the citrus as well and so the top and bottom layers sort of converge on the citrus. It seems muddied together a bit which mutes the flavours overall. Basically I don’t mind this but think I prefer it cold.

Inside was pretty emotional and great.

It was for more unsettling than I expected from Bo Burnham

Today this is pretty astringent. Muscatel notes are strong but drying. It’s fine but not a favourite.

Cold Brew Sipdown (215)

S was for…Summer Pie

Set this cold brew up yesterday when drinking “S” teas and then got super busy with work. Today we went to a photo place outdoors and it’s creamy hot so I was super happy to come home to this refreshing cold brew. It’s cold with a lot of dark berry flavour. Nothing special but good. And despite the heat, the pics turned out cute: https://www.instagram.com/p/CTKt2yKrAGw/?utm_medium=copy_link

I got a diabetes from all the photos. Ha ha. Just joking.

Such cute photos! :) Wow, you and your sister look so much alike!

VariaTEA

Thank you! We also usually get confused for married people. Either people think we’re married or can tell we’re sisters.

S is for…Spicy Peach Cobbler

Work has been crazy. Worked until 2 am twice this week and am working today. Also I slept for 12 hours last night because the week kicked my butt. However it’s the weekend and I’m enjoying it with tea and a lazier working pace. Yay!

This tea is fine. Sort of just a sweet cinnamon rooibos without something that sort of wants to be spice but it’s not. Meh. I like the colourful sprinkles in it though.

drank Root Beer Float by The NecessiTeas

R is for…Root Beer Float

Made this as an iced latte with a plush of French vanilla syrup. The vanilla syrup is nice but it’s also a lot of honeybush flavor. Some sarsaparilla but not as root beer as I’d like.

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
