today was kind of drink whatever i want day. I picked this one since it’s been calling to me ever since MissB was awesome enough to find it for me, before we knew i was randomly going to france myself. i really love this one…both this one and french breakfast make a wonderful cup of tea in the morning. of course i’ll have to see how i feel about paris breakfast once i get around to opening that one too :) thanks again missb! this was a great treat today!

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

cold brew of this one! i think i like this one better hot brewed and then cooled to be honest. There’s something off putting in the cold brew that doesn’t work for me. All that being said though, it’s still not a replacement for cherry snowcone. Me and the coconut just aren’t meant to be.

Final Count: 128

drank Hard Candy by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brew of this is better for me than the hot brew. The “cinnamon” like flavour weird taste i was getting hot brewed is gone, though there is a taste here that i can’t place. Still not a replacement for cherry snowcone, but decent enough to have tried. Won’t be a repurchase for me but i would drink it again if offered.

drank Thé Jardin Bleu Royal by Ladurée

I tried this one out today as i have a swap buddy who wants to taste this and i figured i should at least try a few of the teas before sending it off. this is a lovely tea – it’s reminiscent of those “red fruit teas” that you can pick up from DF, MF and a multitude of other french companies while still NOT being those teas. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but i’m tired of red fruit teas…and this one i would still drink.

I had it, just a cup, not long ago! It is OK, but kind of dammann-ish – they themselves have a jardin bleu tea which is not too different from this one (but not quite the same if my nose remembers rights)

i prefer this one to the DF version, though that’s memory speaking and i couldn’t say why. A nice tea for the summer i think

i wanted delicious this afternoon and so i pulled this one out. I don’t know what else to say about this tea. I love that i can taste teh base while still getting to roll around in the flavours. happiness is this tea, back in my cupboard.

drank Vanille des Îles by Mariage Frères

I need to sort out the teas from MissB and get them out to the girls. However, silly me forgot to pick up bags and labels so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow. However, it did tempt me in to make another cup of this just because. there should be SOME perks to getting a giant box of tea that needs to be repackaged and shipped out haha. For me, it’s getting to have 1-2 cups of things while i sort through them rather than having to add to me cupboard. This is a pretty tasty vanilla tea. Not my ultimate favourite, but still damn good. Thanks again for all the great (and not so great) shares MissB! :)

MissB

So glad you’re enjoying them, whether they’re awesome or, uh, otherwise. It’s like going around the world through tea! Some places we love, others… not so much.

Sil

yes! and all must be tried because you never know :)

drank Hard Candy by DAVIDsTEA

Hot brew from last night. This one was weird for me. It was a candy like brew but there was also a taste in the background that kept reminding me of something…and i kept getting a cinnamon taste from time to time. It wasn’t bad but i’m not sure it was what i was expecting. Cold brew in the fridge to try later since ultimately i’m looking for something to brew iced over the summer for rides.

MissB

When I had this in-store, it was cold brewed. Didn’t get a cinnamon feel from it, but there definitely was an unexpected flavor that I couldn’t quite place.

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

Picked this one up last night and had it hot brew. There’s a cold brew in my fridge as well that i’ll finish off later today. I was on the hunt for a replacement tea to my cherry snowcone but sadly this isn’t it. While it’s a lovely strawberry/coconut drink, and i LIKE the hibiscus, i’m just not digging the coconut…which is too bad because i really like the strawberry flavour of this one. I’ll see how the coldbrew goes though, it might knock my socks off or something :)

VariaTEA

I’ll have to remember to grab these and try them before I leave.

Sil

did you want YOUR tea before you go? from my place? Not working from home this week but pickup/drive by works

VariaTEA

Haha I can try to stop by before I leave but this week is crazy hectic.

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.
