This came to live on my tea shelf earlier this week. Finally got my pumpkin rooibos. And it smells really good. The is a nice blend of spices and pumpkin which goes well with the rooibos base.

Slightly belated b-day tea time. This did just come today.

Think I used too many pearls, I’m not used to that type of tea yet. Anyway, this smells so good. The flavour is kinda sweet, and floral. Not sure if I’ve anything ginseng before, but this is really good.

So I had a cup of this for my birthday, which is today.

It does nicely smell like coconut chocolate cupcakes. The flavour is sweet, and cakey. And the chocolate comes out well with the coconut. Since I brewed without enough leaf, I think I need another cup.

Mmm… that does smell like spice cake. It has a nice spice flavour too. And I do taste the orange peel. Now I want to make apple cider.

Mmm… mint. That’s a lot of mint. Maybe I brewed it too long. Smells really good. The flavour is pretty good, though not as chocolaty.

This smells really nice, liked spiced apples. It’s not as flavourful as I was expecting. Though I do like the cider taste.

Mmm… chocolate. It smells and tastes of chocolate cake. The flavour is really similar to this black blend I very much like. Kinda mild, but still good.

This was supposed to be saved for my b-day, which is in about a week. But since I went to a Harvest Fair today, it was time for more seasonal tea.

It smells kinda like the pie tea, which is pretty good. I think it’s the cloves. The flavour is sweet and apple, though the spices aren’t as strong brewed. Good, and I might end up using some as bread flavouring.

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
341 tasting notes

So, I was on a tour Monday… and there was a David’s shop close by, so I had to go. I picked this up because it smelled so good. At first kinda reminded me of those fall scents from Yankee Candles that are so awesome you wish they were edible. And it is so much better as tea.

Haven’t green tea or apple pie in a while. It has a really good apple cinnamon flavour which I could totally see being pie or a galette even. Anyway, it is a really good seasonal tea. (And now I need to make a pie)

drank Pistachio Cream by DAVIDsTEA
341 tasting notes

Sleepy Hollow brunch, as I had to watch a new autumn show with my new seasonal tea. And I can’t help but wonder what the main character would think of my electric kettle.

Anyway, I did like this one in the store. It smells nicely like ice cream. I’ve not had mulberry leaves before, but they’re pretty good.
And the flavour is sweet, creamy, and nutty.
