drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
276 tasting notes

I had a lot of iced tea this weekend. You see, it was Pride Weekend in Toronto so we spent the entire weekend downtown. I’ll tell you that no matter how much prepared tea you carry on your back, you will run out eventually and will be at the mercy of someone else, in my case the staff of the Church Street location of DT in Toronto.

I really wanted coconut grove. Sorry, we’re out. Ok, I’ll take mango madness. Out. Fine, how about tropicalia. Sorry, we’re out of that one too. Dude, really?!? So we ended up with Bear Trap and Sweet Strawberry. The sweet strawberry was yucky. Couldn’t even drink it. Tasted like someone was trying to save strawberries that have gone off by drying them and shoving them in tea. it didnt have that juicy berry freshness. Not to mention that it was mostly water by the time I was halfway through. sigh

Glad I tried it there before buying my own.

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
