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

drank Biarritz by August Uncommon Tea

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
7480 tasting notes

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.

drank Mulled Wine by DAVIDsTEA

I tried this one the other day and it’s not half bad. It mostly reminds me of mulled wine, rather than tasting exactly like mulled wine. But it’s a nice winter, holiday type tea.

Fjellrev

Haven’t tried it yet, but I wonder what it would be like if you added red wine to it?

Sil

hmmmm that would be a fun experiment heh

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.
