#drinkwhatyouown February slot 22/25

Wednesday 3/3 — Another longer day with work as I came in a little early and learned some basic tasks in another department (1230-3) before my 3-11 shift. Needed something hot/warm & tisane (because I have 7a-3p Thurs 3/4) towards the end of my day so I pulled this out of my bag (2 teabags) and this answered the call. Not “the best tea ever” but I enjoy when I do grab a box of this for something easy and fruity.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #89 overall / Tea #5 for March

Tuesday 3/2 found this open but full 2 oz bag last week. Tried making a hot and plain mug for myself and didn’t care for it. made the last of this for a cold brew pitcher for Micah. I like the idea of this tea and I’m sure there is more of this somewhere with my winter holiday tea bin but it gone for this bit.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #88 overall / Tea #4 for March

Tuesday 3/2 This is cheating kind of since I normally just count my teabags/loose leaf tea, not drinks but this is a bottled tea drink. I don’t drink much kombucha but I bought a bunch lately so my boyfriend and I could try different flavors and use the glass bottles for the homemade ones we are making in last few months. I enjoyed the grape flavor of this one, can’t say I tasted black currant.. would buy this again if I wanted bottled kombucha.

Tuesday 3/2 Another tea I pulled out 3/1 and ended up drinking 3/2. Brewed this hot with the full sample pack in 32 oz water (3/1) and then sipped it cold/chilled the next day (3/2). I love anything cranberry, so I had high hopes for this tea. I don’t know if it was because it’s an older sample or what, but it just tasted like a light fruity tea (I don’t taste any distinctive ingredients). I think I bought a full size (2 or 3 oz) bag of this from her when I bought 2 full size tea & 5 sampler pack from her last April. Will revisit and not judge just from this one experience.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #86 overall / Tea #2 for March

Tuesday 3/2 So yesterday was my day off & I like to get my monthly sip-downs off to a good start (& thirdly I have a high goal threshold this month because I have spent so much money in 2021 already on tea)… I pulled out a few teas and this was one of them. It is a silver bag from buying actually in a DT store (August 2016 so that means my first time at a DT store in person when I went to Chicago and went to all 5 locations). this bag had a couple of DT perfect spoons (PS) left so I made 20 oz tumbler of this hot + plain then re-steeped the leaves in about 12 oz water hot + plain.. my intention was to drink all of this yesterday while hot. Drank the small container and then had the tumbler cold this morning during my AM work shift (7a-2p).

Monday 3/1 Will be writing about this tea on my instagram since I received this as part of being a #nepalteaambassador – will link the post here when I do post it. This was a sampler pack (enough for a 16 oz cuppa) so I had it hot and plain. I have a 50g pouch as well so I’ll be trying it cold brewed and such as well this month.

This tea sounds very interesting; and honestly would give it a try. But trying 50 grams is maybe too much and who knows if they deliver to EU!

Sunday 2/28 so I thought I had reached my goal at this point but I was one short. I pulled out this tea which is not really my tea style but I steeped the 1 sachet I have for a few minutes in 10 oz of water. Not bad for a floral chamomile tea.

#2021steepstersipdown Mastress Alita Saturday, February 27th: National Strawberry Day – Drink a strawberry-flavored tea or a tea with strawberry flavor notes!

Sunday 2/28 pulled this out for the prompt. Fruity teas are my favorites and this is a classic from DT that in haven’t had in I cannot remember how long. Took two 5g sample packet brewed hot and plain and then took to work for my Sunday 2 to 9 am shift (which ended up being a 10+ hour day so I’m tired). Another one I’ll grab a like 4 oz sometime in future year if dt still has this when my stash is under control :)

Sunday 2/28 another older bird and blend tea with cold brew pitcher route…. 1/3rd of tea went to the rug by TV in the living room evening 2/27 as I spilled my full tumbler off coffee table. Nice fruity tea with a sharp note. Would try and make a pitcher with a fresh sample bag in future if the opportunity presents itself.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #81 overall / Tea #48 for February

Sunday 2/28 3 PS left brewed hot with 32 oz water dusty in a ziplock baggie from some old dt Facebook swap or buy. Sounds like a tea i would have like but it was too old to get any sense of it.

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, lavender, rosemary, sage need to keep adding to this.

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

For now I’m just using my tasting notes to record my 2021 sipdowns (of tins/bags/packages no matter if it’s a kilo bag or a teabag/sample packet), goal is 500 by end of year and not a ban on buying but just learning my tastes.

2021 TOTAL AS OF 03/04: 90

March: 6 (90 total as of 3/4) [goal 100 aka for end of the month: 184]
February: 51 (84 total as of 2/28) [goal for end of the month: 84]
January: 33 [goal for end of the month: 42]

TOTAL MONEY SPENT (not counting gift cards, store credit, returns, pre-paid subscriptions (like 2 of my subscription I pay for in December for the following year), etc) 2021 as of 2/17/21: $1562.79 USD

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! :)
