It’s beginning to look a lot like….. uh, Spring. Anyway it’s rainy here today here. So I’m having this tea and watching a documentary about Ancient Persia. This tea smells so nice, I really like mint in the Winter. It has a mint flavour too. I still want to try this with my other really good mint black tea.

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown. I guess I was saving this for a rainy day, as we finally have rain where I live. It smells fabulous, like apples and spices. Maybe I kept longer than I should, it tastes a little off somehow. Though it does have that nice apple flavour I liked so much.

I haven’t had much mate yet. It has a strong licorice flavour. The herbal/ mint flavour is nice though. Perhaps a good tea for the mornings I have class.

It’s winter, I think. Feels like spring here. Anyway, this is one of my faves. The mint goes very well with the vanilla. Too bad this is a seasonal one, I would drink it year round if I could.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I like this one a lot too, but it still feels like winter here :/

Last on the weather map it looked like the only warm place to be in the US is southern California and Key West. The rest of us are not happy about it ;)

Heh. I’m in central California, actually.

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

After having a lot of black tea yesterday, I need to try this one. It smells really nice. Has a mild, sweet caramel flavour. Not that strong, but still good for what it is. (Might try with my other caramel teas.)

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA

Firstly, why is there pineapple in this? I have never used that to make gingerbread. Anyway, it has a good spice scent. The flavour is good, but not really like what I expected from the name.

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

This smells like pineapple. And also like another tea I really like. Though the flavour isn’t as strong. Feels like it’s trying to hard to be the other tea.

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

This was one of my free samples recently. I like their strawberry, not so much the chocolate. It smelled more like chocolate, and tastes more like strawberries. Not sure what I was expecting, but hopefully it’ll be good cold.
