drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA

so this tea SMELLS like sangria. One whiff and i was back in spain with 20 some odd drunk aussies, drinking sangria until 3am. lol brewing this up, i can see why some might not enjoy this, but i think this is one instance where David’s Tea actually came damn close to actual sangria. At least the kind that i’ve had in various places. I can’t say that i’ll want more than my two sil sized cups of this, but it was fun to try :)

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA
7161 tasting notes

Another of the samples i picked up from david’s this weekend. Again, not too shabby, though i’ll stick with the version i have from bayswater i think, even if it is a black tea, and a pain to restock lol. this would be good if i needed non caffeinated teas, but i don’t seem to suffer from being kept awake by caffeine in tea, so i’ll pass. it’s a creamy sort of tea and reminds me vaguely of creme brulee but not in an OMG i can’t believe this isn’t creme brulee sort of way! :)

It’s good with the caramel cream rooibos.

drank Pure Vanilla by DAVIDsTEA
7161 tasting notes

Figured i need to start working on getting another round of sample sizes ready for me yo work through over the next month, so i’m trying to drink things that are close to being sipdowns but will take at least 2-3 more times drinking it. That includes the few teas i picked up from David’s this past weekend along with my iced pitcher. :)

This one isn’t too shabby. I don’t get a lot of “ROOIBOS” taste in this one, instead the vanilla comes across quite nicely. I think it might be fun to blend this with LB and cacao shells at some point just for funsies :) overall not a bad blend.

i think i finally figured out what it is that i dislike about this tea. It’s the nutty after taste. I love the maple flavour, though it could be even more present…and the base has a great taste to it..but the weird nutty flavour that it also present in this is what i don’t like. it’s like having nuts in brownines…ick. way to interupt the smooth deliciousness of the chocolate…or in this case, maple. i’ll enjoy the last few cups i have but this doesn’t need to be a reorder…which is ok with me since steam is lacking in the online storefront :(

I agree, no nuts in my brownies! Especially walnuts, ick!

drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
7161 tasting notes

best part about finishing up 109821309821039812 samples? i can drink any tea i want, whenever! and not feel guilty about it hahaha. I pulled this one out today since i was craving a cup of delicious pineapple goodness and i’m out of stacy’s pineapple oolong. While i also enjoy this one from lupicia, stacy’s version will be my go to version from now on. It’s just way more pineappl-y AND yay for pineapple chunks that i can eat!

drank Assam Beast of the East by RiverTea

finally managed to make this one right today. Just a little cooler temp than boiling and about 2.5 mins and it was a much tastier cup today. I’m glad i finally figured this one out, though i still prefer my assams to be of the “tiger” variety lol :)

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
7161 tasting notes

i’ve been drinking this one in between my hot teas to keep the liquids coming today. I’m pretty sure i’m going to need to pick up more of this. It was the first tea that i put into my new iced pitcher that i picked up the other day and while its not the most amazing tea ever, it IS cherry snow cone – not too sweet and just flavourful enough for summer days when we’re biking and such and want something that’s not quite water but isn’t full of sugar. :)

I’ve had this a few times now, and while i do enjoy it a bunch. there’s a floral note to is that i can’t get behind. i love the initial sips of this and the tail end of things, but somewhere in the middle there’s a floral note that doesn’t like me. That’s really on me, and not the tea. :)

Butiki Teas

I definitely understand about that floral note. This tea to me tastes like a Darjeeling crossed with an Assam but I can definitely see how if you aren’t into floral at all that the floral note can ruin the chocolaty goodness.

nice tea..just not for meeeee :)

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.
