Iced tea with salted caramel cold foam Sipdown (217)

This was ok. It was one of the better ways to have this tea but one of the less tasty cold foam drinks I made lately. A good way to finish this blend which was always nice but slightly disappointing as the black base came through more than I would have liked.

Yesterday I was talking to Roswell Strange about the fancy cold foam drinks I’ve been making. They’ve all been so good and I asked what she recommended I try next. My cold foam flavor options are: white chocolate, toasted marshmallow, vanilla, salted caramel, gingerbread, cinnamon brown sugar, and strawberry. Roswell suggested white chocolate and something minty and this tea came to mind immediately. It was honestly so good that I made it again today. So decadent but refreshing thanks to the mint. Yum!

Added this to an almond butter and banana smoothie today for a little kick. The vanilla was strong with this one, perhaps because of the matcha or because of the vanilla extract.

Iced Tea with Gingerbread Cold Foam Sipdown (218)

Necessiteas had a gingerbread pancake tea and this is what I wanted it to taste like. The 52 Teas pancake breakfast is the classic pancake tea that just nails that flavour. Add to that a touch of spiced gingerbread syrup to the cold foam and you get a rich iced beverage that Starbucks would be charging a whole lot for :)

Iced tea with cinnamon brown sugar cold foam Sipdown (220)

This was so good!

The banana is just spot on so paired with the cinnamon and brown sugar cold foam it was like someone brûléed a banana or the fried banana dessert people get at like Brazilian restaurants. Bananas foster. Honestly just all the delicious banana desserts!

Iced Tea with Strawberry Cold Foam Sipdown

Finished this off a few days ago with a strawberry cold foam topper. It was awesome and this tea is just a really nice cinnamon tea. I’m grateful for DAVIDsTEA for gifting it to me to try because I think I’ll be ordering more in the future, whereas I likely wouldn’t have tried this without the company sending some my way.

Made this iced and topped it with strawberry cold foam and it was so good. Check out the pic here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CeY7q3Iu8Ij/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

I had 1 serving of toasted marshmallow sweet cream and so I asked Roswell Strange what to pair it with. She suggested a cinnamon heavy chai but this tea came to mind instead. Made it as an iced latte with the sweet cream and it’s honestly so good! Lots of cinnamon offset by the sweet marshmallow cream. It’s honestly like having a campfire inspired ice cream!

Bio

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
