pulled this one out given my swedish chef’s tasting note. I brought back 200g of this version and another 100g of the fauchon version and i’m paranoid the flavour is going to disappear or turn on me. Thankfully i was able to share some with the girls when they were over, but i still have plenty for folks to enjoy. :) Still like this one, though i think i landed firmly on the side of fauchon’s being a teeny bit more to my liking, though not enough for me to be disappointed that i have less of it


Don’t worry about the Fauchon one – like I shared, Fauchon is opening soon on Robson Street in Vancouver. You’ll get as much as you want, whenever! :)


Hell yeah!

And WHAAAAAAT to Fauchon opening in Vancouver soon. You just couldn’t do that when I was still living on the west coast now, could you?


I KNOW RIGHT?! You’ll have to come visit. Somehow. :)

noms. not sure what else to say. I love that this is grapefruit and mint, though i think i’d like this even without the mint. So happy i picked up a sample of this to try in my last order with AU

i really like this tea. I think i’ve figured out which tea i’ll be picking up with my free 50g. I figure that will be about as much as i need before i’ll get tired of it :)


Trying to decide if I should go for the 50 or the 100 (I’m within range!). How does it work? Do you go in and use your points or is it done online?

If you have the points, you can do either. However, you have to wait until they announce the redeemable period. The last one started in October, so I am guessing that the next period is January or February. They’ll send an email. Or you can check their website to see when the next period begins or ask when you visit one of their stores.


This current one ends Dec 4 i believe as i’ve got until then to use up my points

This was a sample provided by the secret garden tea company. I’ve been searching for a christmas spice tea that wasn’t as intense as many of other ones from france are. This one smells very similar to other christmas spice teas. Brewed up though, this is softer…christmas spice without that intense in your face orange, clove that a lot of spice teas have. I think that it might be the addition of vanilla, or perhaps the cranberries? The ingredients don’t list the berry that i can see, but the two makes this a tasty blend.

Thanks Secret Garden tea, for letting me try this one!

Also finished off the last of this one last night – a delicious herbal tea full of noms. What’s not to love about cacao, vanilla and raspberry? :) plus…little bears haha

Finished this one of last night except for a sample heading out for someone else to try. I don’t love this one as much as some of the others from AU but it’s just because this one isn’t up my alley, rather than there being anything wrong with the tea. I have had other teas that were amaretto flavoured that i preferred, though in general, it’s not a flavour i love. Still though, these teas are excellent and i can appreciate the blend for that reason.

drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

there’s a weird second taste with this one. I get the minty chocolate peppermint but then there’s also this sort of chemical, sort of like fruity taste to it that i dislike. It has inspired me to maybe add some cacao the next time i make peppermint patty though, just for funsies :)

drank Gingerbread Cookie by DAVIDsTEA

I’m not generally a fan of mate but for whatever reason, in this particular tea, it actually works for me. I suspect it’s because it’s a blend with rooibos. I don’t like this enough to want it in my cupboard permanently but it’s nice – a good balance of gingerbread to make it come across much like a cookie would.

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.
