This white tea is amazing! The sweet, juicy pomegranate flavor compliments the delicate white tea so beautifully. It is just like eating a ripe pomegranate! Yum!!

drank Mardi Gras Vanilla by CaesarsTea
6283 tasting notes

I think this tea was really quite great. The smell is of vanilla beans, not artificial vanilla flavoring. Personally, I picked up on the vanilla notes both in the scent and taste. My roommate said she noticed the vanilla more in the smell than anything and suggested I steep it for longer next time to bring the flavors out. In the end though we both agreed that this was quite delicious. Something tells me I will be getting more of this in the future.

As far as fruit tisanes go, this is quite a nice one. Strawberry and kiwi is a classic combination and their complimentary flavors really shine in this tea. However, I am realizing more and more I miss the tea base when it is not present. Nevertheless, this was still quite enjoyable.

drank Rooibos Earl Grey by CaesarsTea
6283 tasting notes

This is an interesting tea as it has the extra bergamot and vanilla flavors in an earl grey but it is on a rooibos base as opposed to the usual black tea base. Since I like rooibos I think it is a nice match. I get the delicious flavors of an earl grey tea that I can have anytime of the day.

drank Ancient Rome by CaesarsTea

This tea is actually quite similar to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence as they are both lavender rooibos teas. However, this has the addition of berries and personally I find that this distracts from the taste of the tea as opposed to adding to it. This is still a very good cup but it is close enough to Jessie’s Tea/Caesars Provence that I don’t need both and I prefer the other.

drank Angel Dust by CaesarsTea

This one smells great but like so many other fruit blends I find myself disappointed. I find I usually search for the tea base and miss it because it is not there. Nonetheless, this was not bad. It was a nice cup of tea that was a perfect balance between tart lemon and sweet strawberry. Something tells me this will be amazing to have iced in the summertime. Until then I probably won’t be reaching for it as a hot tea.

THIS TASTES JUST LIKE DAVIDS JESSIE’S TEA!!! I love Jessie’s Tea so naturally I love this too. This one is better though for one reason – it is cheaper!! So now I can have more of the tea I love for less! Yay!

drank Vanilla Cream Pie by CaesarsTea
6283 tasting notes

Both dry and steeped, this tea smells very similar to DAVIDs Red Velvet Cake. However, this is not nearly as sweet as RVC. It gets both a subtle sweetness and a slight creaminess from the vanilla. I did forget I was steeping this so I managed to way oversteep it but that merely resulted in a stronger black tea flavor.

drank Blood Orange by CaesarsTea

I always get excited about the smell of orange teas and then when I drink them I realize an orange tea is not really my favorite. Unfortunately this is no exception. It is not bad by any means, just not something I would typically reach for.

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.

90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times

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
