1. Does anyone else have problems posting on the discussion boards? I have found it takes forever to post and then usually I get an error message or it just times out without posting. That goes for updating my posts as well which is annoying seeing as a couple weeks ago I went through months of bills to update my spending for 2019 and realized this weekend it didn’t take.

2. I don’t think I actually wanted tea tonight so much as I wanted a hot beverage for a Tim Tam Slam. This seemed like it would serve that purpose well. It did and now I am sipping on this very banana-y tea. I quite like it actually. I could do with less of the white tea base but I guess it is light enough to help the banana come out.

3. Does no one else have this tea? Or is there another page for it?

When is this tea from? I don’t actually think I have it, which presumably means it’s fairly old?

1) Yep me! It usually ends with error, but sometimes it just appears there even with error, but usually it does not. So, I gave up writing there.

Sadly, I can make a post but never make a reply. I sometimes go out to just read a bit, but since I can’t take part in any discussions it is pretty disappointing.

I totally have this tea – I just never reviewed it! Haha.

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
