There is a coffee shop near my office (several actually) called Mos Mos. People really like it but I have always ignored it because I don’t drink coffee. I got curious the other day though and noticed they had a pretty extensive chai latte list. So today while procrastinating at work, I decided to pop over and grab a Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte to meet the #cuppateaathon prompt: “Drink a Fall Blend”. However, I wasn’t wholly convinced I wanted to commit to Fall yet so I also grabbed an Iced Mango Chai Latte. Check out the pic here:

I started with the Mango first. It is not bad but it is very sweet. Distinctly mango, but mango syrup rather than the fruit. Mango syrup with a touch of cinnamon. And it is super creamy. It’s like a crazy smooth and creamy mango ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon.

The pumpkin spice tasted odd at first. I even made a face when I drank it. It is also very creamy and is making me think pumpkin pie. So that’s good if you’re into pumpkin pie. Like normally I expect the spices when I order “pumpkin spice”, but not the actual pumpkin flavour so that threw me – hence the face. I think this one is actually the better of the two options though.

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
