I haven’t had this in a while. Holy Shanghai. It’s a phenomenal tea! I love this one so much! So glad I bought more of this. It’s just amazing. ^^

Okay, I just don’t understand how this brand is so popular and yet their chamomile tastes like Vaseline xD
I really need to sip this one down. xD Don’t think I dislike anyone enough to pass this one on haha!


HEY, maybe people like drinking Vaseline? ;)


Someone else might love it? I’ve had some teas I found so awful I felt bad about the idea of passing them on to someone else, and then had other people really enjoy them.

Sooo ordered more of this one. It’s just so creamy, thick, and caramel-y! I just love it! One of the best caramel teas I’ve had. And since Davids’ is doing a promo for the tumbler, I figured I’d order more of this myself! :D
Finished off my sample today. Can’t wait to get more!
Mmmmmm! ^^

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Smooth, Sweet, Thick


My mother absolutely adored that one, she always has a constant stock of the stuff


Aha-your mother knows a good tea!:P

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve gotten this in two swaps now, and each time,when I opened the package, this tea is the one that smells the whole thing up. Doesn’t really “taint” the other teas, but it’s just strong. And totally makes my whole room smell like this tea! Forget a candle, just open a package of this tea and you’ll be set :P
I wanted to try this again because I thought my taste has probably changed and I wouldn’t like it again. Well this time I was wrong!! :D
I still love this one! Definitely my favorite minty tea. It still reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream! It’s sweet, creamy, chocolate-y, minty!
Ah, just this freakin’ tea! Makes me happy! ^^

Flavors: Chocolate, Creamy, Mint, Sweet


Sounds yum!


It is!

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA
473 tasting notes

Another sample from my awesome swap with the girl in Canada!
This one smelled strongly of strawberries when I opened the little bag. I’ve never been a massive strawberry fan, but I really like chocolate dipped strawberries, which was what I expected the flavor of this to be!
It tastes a lot like strawberries,and the black tea base is pretty strong. Not too overwhelming. But I guess that makes it more like a chocolate dipped strawberry xD
Because it’s sweet from the strawberries, slightly dark and bitter from the chocolate/black base. xD
So in light of what I thought it would be, it’s pretty decent. Just a little too bitter for me.

Flavors: Bitter, Strawberry, Sweet

This one turned out really bitter…and I didn’t steep it over the time limit even…What a shame. :/

Flavors: Bitter


I wanted to love this one, but I was never really able to get it right after 50g worth of trying. :/


Wow-you got through 50g still?


Dang. I don’t like bitter teas


I’m a glutton for punishment :P

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

Finally getting to try the Oh so famous Santa’s Secret!!!! :D :D
Was kinda expecting a little more creamy-ness, or a deeper flavor, but I didn’t get it from this one. It was a good tea. A pretty basic peppermint tea.
I haven’t had many peppermint teas so far, and what I’ve tried of them, I feel that they are okay. Not my favorite, but drinkable. Always feel like they should be stronger.
A coworker had me try a popular peppermint tea from Trader Joe’s a couple weeks back. Appparently it always sells out really fast every year so my coworker never has time to get it.She was so excited to give it to me. xD
She doesn’t drink that much tea, but even she agreed it needed to be stronger.
This tea I feel that she would like though. It’s pretty strong. Doesn’t have a lot of depth, sadly. But for the person that doesn’t drink a crap load of tea all the time, it’s pretty much perfect! I really should pick some of this up for her! She really would enjoy it!

Flavors: Peppermint

Finishing up the last of this sample today. The genmaicha is definitely there, but it’s just so creamy. It’s so weird. I can’t get past the weirdness-haha! But I think I’d rather just stay with their normal genmaicha. xD
Thanks so much for the sample, Cameron B.!!

Flavors: Creamy, Thick, Toasted Rice, Vanilla

drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
473 tasting notes

So trying a few different teas before sales officially start, so I know what I am gonna get.
Finished off the sample of this one.
It’s a very bold tea-bread and cocoa notes are very present, as is the earthiness, which I don’t like. xD
It’s a pretty good tea, but I don’t think I would get more than the Sample. But hey-more money for Golden Fleece! XD

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cocoa, Earth

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
473 tasting notes

So, wasn’t expecting this one to be all that great. Thought it would just be more of a basic caramel rooibos tea, that tastes more woody than anything else. xD
But it surprised me! XD
It’s incredibly creamy and sweet. Don’t need to add sugar or anything. And better yet, there’s no woody taste, whatsoever!!
It’s actually one of the better caramel teas I’ve tried so far. Mmm!
So happy to have tried this sample!!!

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Sweet

I’m not too sharp with intros, but I figured it is about time to give it a go.
I started out drinking oolong and green tea that my dad brought home from his China business trips.
Then I discovered Teavana, and fell in love with some of their teas. Eventually I stumbled across Steepster, and a whole ‘nother world opened up.
Have discovered so many different kinds of teas, and have been loving this journey! The tea world is insanely big and amazing! And I’ve met some of the kindest people here who have broadened my horizons in more ways I could have imagined! Happy to be here, and to be drinking so many amazing teas! :D

My rating system:
1-59: Really really not a fan. An awful cup of tea for me…Totally undrinkable.

60-69: Not horrible, but not something I’d ever drink again willingly.

70-79: Pretty good. Wouldn’t mind drinking ever so often. But not a keeper.

80-100: FREAKIN’ AMAZING. Always keeping on stock in my home!!

I like pretty much any kind of tea except green tea. Unless it’s genmaicha or strongly flavored, I don’t like it usually.

My Tea Goals:
To find the Best Caramel Tea
To find the Best Vanilla Tea
To find the Best floral Oolong
To find the Best Malty Assam Tea
To find the Best Maple/Syrup Tea

Notes I like: Fruit(primarily peach, melon/honeydew, Banana, Kiwi, but I’m open to other kinds), Malt, Desserts (Toffee, Cake, Cookie,etc), Vanilla, Caramel, Floral, Sweet potato, Pastry/Bread,Jasmine, Honey, Cocoa, Chocolate, Maple, Nutty, Coconut, Almond.

Notes I’m Picky with: Lemon, Chai, Roasted, Blueberries, Hibiscus, Smoke, Earthiness, Puerhs, White Teas, and Cinnamon

Notes I hate: Citrus/Orange (Everything that I hate in this life that I have to take for my health is orange flavored, and it just makes me gag…so please…just no), Watermelon, Raspberry, Wood, Apple, Bacon, Lavender, Most mints, Pepper, Spicy, Tart/sour.

Yes, I am a picky tea drinker, but I’ll usually try any straight black or oolong tea that I receive. I like most oolongs, and I’m still discovering straight blacks. They always seem to surprise me no matter what!

And Swaps! I’m always down for swapping. Everything in my cupboard is swap-able. So just hit me up and send a message and we can totally do that!

On an unrelated to tea note, my other interests are limited due to health issues. But when I can, I enjoy reading and writing. Watching Netflix and YouTube have also been fantastic when I feel awful (which is most of the time).
I love Rifftrax, Rooster Teeth, Dexter, Hannibal, BBC’s Robin Hood, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Psych, and Parks and Rec.
Love watching all sorts of movies too, but that would be too much to list. :P
I’m definitely more of an internet person and love talking to people on every website I’m on. So if you ever wanna chat, shoot me a message! ^^
