Sipdown Progress Challenge
February 2024 | Mardi Gras / A colorful tea

From the TeaTiff TTB.

Maybe not a wild color choice, but this is certainly one of the brightest and most vibrant teas that I have. I don’t remember who put this one in the box, but thank you! I don’t drink matcha all that often but this one sounded and smelled so good that I had to swipe it to try. I warmed and frothed some oat milk to mix with this, no sweetener needed since I believe it’s already sweetened, and it tastes like a blueberry muffin! Definitely a nice choice for breakfast.

Flavors: Blueberry


That sounds yummy!

Sipdown Progress Challenge
January 2024 | A winter inspired blend

A favorite that’s been knocking around in my cabinet for a while. This is still available so it’s on my sipdown list for January. I don’t specifically taste prunes or plums, more of a generic stone fruit flavor, but it’s delicious.

*Note to future self — this one curdles with milk.

Flavors: Stonefruit

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, red fruits, bergamot, chai spices, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, peaches, plums, valerian root, cinnamon, cardamom

Not a huge fan
White teas, green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice, lemongrass, lavender, hot hibiscus, hibiscus in black tea blends

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
