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.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
375 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
375 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.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Finally got to try this again. It’s sweet, and tastes like cupcakes or maybe cotton candy. I like it a little more after having a similar tea.

drank Jessie's Tea by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve been wanting to try this for a while. Since I happened to be driving right by a shop, I finally got some. It smells so nice, and relaxing. The lavender seems stronger as a scent. The flavour is more sweet, herbal coconut.
Now I feel like I should use it for cookies.

This smells like those starlight mints I really like. Making mint tea in my game made me want a cup. I haven’t had plain mint tea in a while.
This is sweet, and a bit refreshing.

This is actually better than the black tea. It smells fantastic. The flavor is still delicious, and it’s like having a lighter cake.

This smells really good, but then I like the mint. The flavour goes well with the berry, even though it’s a little hidden.

So far, I’ve only tried this hot. Seems it would be better cold.

This is the first I’ve tried this since Spring. I’ve also had a couple other maple teas. This does smell really good. It has a nice flavour too. I added a little vanilla. (Would be good with scones)
