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.

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 :)

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

drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia

Another one from last night – apparently i was craving fruity teas. I will be super sad when this one is gone BUT i have lots left still, so no fear of that happening anytime soon. This is probably one of my favourite honeydew teas. Especially since it’s caffeine free!

tea from yesterday! While i will be super upset when this one is out of my cupboard, i also don’t want it to grow old and less tasty. So i pulled this one out last night to enjoy. :) I adore the pineapple flavour that stacy captured with this one. best pineapple tea ever.

yes love this one, I should pull it out again soon before it goes stale :(

is it time to go home yet? I am so looking forward to the weekend. This version of this tea is delicious! I think it’s funny that zhu rong and yu lu sort of swapped for me last harvest since previous to that, it was the other way around – i preferred zhu. ah well, both decent offerings. :)

slow tea drinking day today…lots to do this weekend so trying to take it easy and get ready for packaging up some swaps and such :) while i have loved this tea in the past, this harvest still isn’t my favourite. I’m hoping that 2015 is a better year for my fav teas…though i was looking at verdant’s site and it looks like prices are going up AND the tin options aren’t currently available. makes me a sad panda.

drank Nuit D'hiver by George Cannon

noms. Another tea from Paris. I did my best to try and pick up one or two herbals while i was there since i knew i was short on evening teas for when i didn’t want caffeine. this is a really nice fruity, caramel blend. there’s some hibby in here, which has never bothered me so i’m ok with that :) there are vanilla notes here too…which soften the fruit and make it a really nice summer sort of tea.

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.
