drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

This one’s pretty yummy. I’m feeling the black is overwhelming the flavours so I added a drop of agave and it’s better now. Perhaps not permanent collection but delicious nonetheless.

Oh yes. Anything I can smell summer in automatically has an advantage. I know that’s probably not right, but what can I say? I live for summer.
This is another I got from our “tea party” on Friday. I’m already excited for next Friday haha.

Yum, yum. I’m off to breakfast and I’ll finish this cup on the way. I’ll add more on the taste when I’m back!

drank St Petersburg by Kusmi Tea
701 tasting notes

So I work Friday nights, every week, for 4 hours. Just me, my manager, and a yoga teacher. So we decided to start something new. Tea parties!
Yep, last night we brought in some of our favs, a teapot and some bubble teacups. And drank tea all night :) Ah yes. So I swapped some teas with her and came home with this Kusmi blend. I’ve been so excited to try Kusmi!

Ooh I’m enjoying it! On first scent it smelled like a fancy Earl Grey but despite my un-fondness of Earl Grey this one’s yummy. It’s not overwhelmingly bergamot-y.

And she gave me the rest of her tin of this – so a pretty tin and a yummy tea! I’m so lucky! Good day :)

Update February 22/13: Having this one this morning before my day begins. This is my first cup of black tea in a while. Yum! But that’s my last cup of this one, does that mean sipdown? Now I just need to find some Prince Vladimir.

I have some that I can send you…it’s really not my cup of tea as I picked it up based on smell when I didn’t know I don’t really like bergamot lol. If you remind me in march I can send you some. In china ATM so I can’t exactly send anything until I get back lol

Courtney

Haha fair enough. I’ll make a note so I remember. How’s China?

Sil

China is going well…I might get a whole day off to explore sigh wish it were more….but at least the food is good :)

Thanks to kimlovestea for this one! (BTW can anyone let me know how to “tag” someone when I’m thanking them? You know, when their usename is bolded?)

Oh yum. Man I love me some breakfast tea. And this one is no exception. Really good, especially for a bagged tea.

Thanks again kimlovestea!

Him: “When you make tea, could you make me a surprise tea from your collection?”
Me: “What makes you think I’m having tea?”
Him: “Let’s be real. Don’t act like you won’t have at least 3 more cups tonight.”

This one’s delicious. Light, oh so smooth, and cantaloupe-y. I may have to place on order for Butiki Teas now! Has anyone tried Watermelon Xylophone? I’m thinking I may have to order that one as well.

Thanks for the laugh! What was his verdict?

Courtney

Haha yes I had 2 more cups that night. I hate when he’s right! Haha, and I made him Happy Kombucha from DavidsTea :)

Thanks to Kasumi no Chajin for sending me this one. Mmm smells minty. Tastes minty. But not overwhelmingly mint. Yum yum.

Thanks again Kasumi no Chajin!

Ahh summertime. Between this and Luscious Watermelon I can survive the long, seemingly never-ending winter.

I love it hot and iced. Delish. If you haven’t tried it, you should :)

drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
701 tasting notes

This one smells just like Gold Rush – evidently the mulberry takes over anything else in the mix – which is just fine cause it smells pretty damn good. And added bonus – it costs less :)

It brews up an interesting green colour but still smells just as good. It smells so sweet but hopefully like Gold Rush the taste will be just perfect and not as sweet as the smell.

From what I remember of Gold Rush this is tasting just like it, perhaps with the slightest hint of nuttiness from the macadamia. I’m enjoying it.

I was surprised by this one because I’ve never had mulberries, or a nutty tea. I really like it though, and I like that it’s herbal so I have more options at night.

Yep I think I’ll be having this plus a couple of re-steeps while I sit in a comfy chair and catch up on my readings for tomorrow. Joyful.

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA
701 tasting notes

Is that a hint of cherry I smell? I don’t see it in the ingredients hmm.

This one is pretty delish, despite my initial skepticism. Excellent.

Another positive – I love when tea brews up clear with nothing floating round the top :)

Profile

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
