Made this as an iced latte topped with coconut whipped cream and I was a fan. The coconut flavour is strong but paired with such a smooth and caramel base.

Teapop Sipdown (222)

My sister took this from me, sniffed, thought it smelled good, took a sip and cringed. I warned her she wouldn’t like it since she doesn’t really drink black tea but I didn’t think it would be that bad. However this was floral and astringent and just not very good so good riddance to it.

Made this as a latte and if not for coconut whipped cream and caramel drizzle, I don’t think I would have loved this. I blame the rooibos, which is so unnecessary and really takes away from the flavour.

I just read your tasting note from two weeks ago mentioning you had Covid – I hope you’re doing okay!

Lemonade Iced Tea Sipdown

Had this the other day and I think it was starting to go off so it was good to finish it. It paired nicely with the strawberry lemonade I used at least.

Cold brew Sipdown

This cold brewed for a while but it tastes like nothing. I tested positive for COVID so could be that or could be just regular congestion side effects. Who knows.

Sorry to hear! Pamper yourself as you can and get well soon!

I hope you feel better soon! It seems like everyone is getting COVID these days.

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
