drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
4923 tasting notes

I had a cup of this tonight while watching World War Z – overall not a bad cup of tea. I don’t get the red velvet cake that others do, instead this is just a decent ginger-ish sort of rooibos tea without being overly rooibosy. I only picked up enough for 2 or so Sil sized servings and that’s enough for me. it’s not amazing enough to warrant a larger purchase even if it is another ginger/non caffinated tea.

I think the previews made it look a lot scarier than it actually turned out to be

The book is AMAZING but the previews for the movie don’t seem to fit the book.

I read the online info, about both the book & the movie, & of course, the storyline doesn’t follow the book exactly…does it ever? LOL

Tea Sipper – I really enjoyed the book too, so I wasn’t very excited about the movie based on the previews. I guess the movie is based on parts of the book? Seeing as the book is more episodic, following different people in different countries, instead of one smooth narrative, it doesn’t really make the best adaptation… It was entertaining enough, but don’t expect too much.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
