My favorite combination ever is Della Terra’s Dubbelle Chocolade with DavidsTea The Earl’s Garden. I don’t really know why it works; it just kinda does.

Sorry – I’m just gonna randomly comment on this in reply to the message you just asked me via PM. I’ve been having really weird issues with PM all day today (anytime I go to read a PM the mailbox page crashes and for whatever reason javacript stops working, and it appears I can’t send messages now either. I don’t think it’s a Steepster issue, but it’s the only page I’m having problems with on Steepster or even at all on any site). Anyway, I can’t see that as being a problem: it’d be really tough for anyone to come up with something for 12 Pipers Piping… I tried to come up with something as a suggestion to be helpful, but I was stumped.

AHA that’s fine. Thanks for the help. I actually just ordered my tea, which should come soon and then it will be packaged and then shipped and then on January 5th it will be opened. And steeped.

I love tea.

Also, upon rereading that comment, I really think I need sleep.

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA
60 tasting notes

I just got a free cup of this with my purchase thanks to the absolutely lovely Davids people! It’s pink! How lovely! I don’t love the actual tea as much: It’s almost cloyingly sweet, more like, well, pink lemonade powder. As in, it tastes fake. But it does taste EXACTLY like pink lemonade, so, success on that count, and if you like pink lemonade then you’ll probably like this.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

Okay, SO I don’t really like this hot. At all. But today the orders at Davids got mixed up and I took this iced cup of Forever nuts because it was extra and I didn’t want to wait. It’s FANTASTIC iced. I really like it. So, I’ve now had a cup of really lovely tea and am now sitting down to catch up on Doctor Who. All is right in the world.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
60 tasting notes

I got this as an I-just-finished-and-probably-failed-my-first-exam tea, and I’m pretty glad I did. I’m not generally a big white tea drinker, but I’m getting more into it. This has a pretty floral taste, but isn’t too perfumey. However, I am getting an icky aftertaste. Darn it. Also, I think there’s artificial flavouring in this one, which makes me sad. Still, it was nice, and I’m going to be finishing the .6 ounces.

Well, I’m back. My absence was caused for several reasons, but basically I haven’t been on Steepster since the beginning of February. I apologize to my trades ; everything is coming, i promise (cross my heart and hope to die, pinky swear, etc.) I missed it though!

This tea: I wanted something ginger, and rooibos sounded nice. But this tea is just sort of thin. There’s a lot of spice from the ginger and peppercorns, but I want something to ground it a little. I usually add some of my own rooibos to it. Sometimes I mix it with chai, which I really like. I would definitely get this in large amounts and add rooibos to it, because ginger is delicious.

Hrrm. Well, it’s been a hectic couple of weeks, but I’m still alive! and back on steepster. And I’d like to apologize to the people i’ve traded with; your items should be coming very soon.
This tea is odd. I liked the very first cup out of the bag, but then something went wrong. I usually don’t like Davids cinnamon teas, because they taste weird to me (I think the cinnamon has a weird aftertaste), but several people told me that this was good, so i got it It just leaves this weird taste in your mouth. blech. And it made my mug smell weird for several days. Well, whatever. Also, I’m sick and drinking lemony honey filled rooibos :)

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
60 tasting notes

So, I’m listening to The Velvet Underground, preparing for a very hellish week ahead of me, and I decided that I want a latte. I didn’t want caffeine, and I sort of wanted chai. Darn. But… WAIT! I have this from a long time ago. I didn’t love it, but oh well.
So I made it as a latte. And this is insane. ITS AMAZING.
Okay, well, maybe it’s not exactly mind blowing. Or near mind blowing. Oh, and I also added some crumbled ceylon cinnamon (like, crumbled from the stick). Well, okay. But it was still really yummy. And made me happy. Almost as happy as Spotify. No, not really. But sort of.

drank White Peony by DAVIDsTEA

This is literally like a spring day. I feel like there’s memories. Flowers. Maybe this is just me being tired of the city in winter, but this tea made me very happy. I can’t really say whether this is a good white tea or not, because I don’t usually drink whites, but I enjoyed this one.

I enjoyed this tea. It was lovely, and as my mom said, “elegant.” It really is elegant; I could imagine it being served with little scones or something in a lovely tea service… anyway, thanks to Crystal for this, again. :)
