“Teas I drink in a day Friday 12/22/23” #1

MUG: David’s Tea light yellow base/lavender top 20 oz tumbler
STYLE: cold brew (leftover from the full pitcher yesterday at work)
DRANK: at work to start off my day.
NOTES (general of course because black tea especially plain is not my forte):
After I get through the workday (and I’ve been feeling down with general winter coughing/sneezing annoying ness since Monday) I have the first of two 3-day weekends coming with getting Christmas Day and New Year Day off. I figured why not do a “teas I drink in a day” Steepster/Instagram posts.

Although black tea is not my strong suit, I have to say 2023 I’ve have grown a slight appreciation of black tea in general and even EGs (! – this is not an EG, this is just a note of my tastes overall). I am not particularly sensitive or not to caffeine but been trying to integrate black teas into my mornings at work. I do have two or three gals from my group chat on IG who says they will help me out with offloading black teas, so perhaps will share this with them but this is only a 90 gram bag so wouldn’t be hard to just make some pitchers of this or even at home as I’ve been occasionally making some simple sauces/syrups for tea.

EDIT: Instagram post, pic 1 is mug & packaging and 6 is picture with teas 4&5, @teawithjann vlogmas playing, snacks from @dessertbydeb box that arrived that day, and one my kids (my kitten Sherbet, one of my two girls): https://www.instagram.com/tiffanydrinkstea/p/C1Mj4I1Odn7/?img_index=6

Been a huge fan of tea since spring of 2016.

Likes: herbal (tisanes), green, oolong, white, fruit, lemon, lychee, yuzu, guava, bananas, peach, plum, nectarine, cherry, raspberry, blueberry, any berries really, dessert, sweet potato, spicy, smoky, earthy, roasted, chai, ginger, cardamom, lavender, rosemary, sage, nuts of any kind, need to keep adding to this.

Not a huge fan: rooibos/honeybush, black tea, puerh.

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

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! :)
