Strange VariaTEA TTB: Tea 21

Pulled this teabag that Roswell Strange shared in the SVTTB and drank it almost a week ago. Thank you!! The tea was fine. At some points I got light mango flavour. It tricked me into thinking I may like it but as I kept drinking the chamomile built up and really ruined it for me. At times I got even a nutty sort of note that reminded me of Forever Nuts and literally nothing should have given that vibe.

Hi! I was wondering if it is possible to be added to participate in the Strange VariaTEA TTB? I just finished participating in another TTB and really loved it! Please let me know if it’s still circulating and taking new participants! I commented on your Instagram as well :)

Made this as an iced latte and it tastes like a less delicious version of ginger creme brulee. The ginger is real strong and burnet but then I don’t get much else. The weird heavy sweet note a lot of Deb’s teas have that stop the flavour from being rounded out properly. Overall, not a favourite in the least.

Thank you for sharing Sil! This was really floral and could use maybe a touch more ginger but the flavour I got paired beautifully with a bright/sweet pineapple flavour. Overall, I liked this one.

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
