Last night I couldn’t sleep and at 3am I realized it has been a while since I have seen my makeup. I went searching but couldn’t find it so today I took a trip to Sephora to replace what I lost. Then, since it was across the hall anyways, I went into DAVIDs and basically stocked up on fruit teas. I think I have a problem. However, I have basically been living off my caffeine free options so I figured they wouldnt go to waste.

For instance, this tea was my cold brew for the day. I find having it this way turns down the herbal elements, except for the ginger which comes through in smell and aftertaste. The sip, however, is all peach. Mellow peach but peach nonetheless. However, not a peach that is true to the fruit, more artificial (think a fuzzy peach after someone licked the sour sugar coating off). Though, as you continue to drink, that ginger builds and starts to cloud the taste overall. Nonetheless, I think this is my preferred way to have this of all the methods I tried. With that said, I just don’t think this tea is for me.

I bought more tea today. That “I think” portion is becoming a lot less necessary :P

I picked up three new ones today too. No need, of course. Need has little to do with it.

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
