goodbye delicious tea. Hopefully another lot of this same tea will knock my socks off like this one did. so amazeballs.

Final Count for October: 105 which is far from my goal of 60 but is damn good considering i was at 176 at the end of September. So there.

I have a bunch of tasting notes to catch up, but just a couple for right now as i catch up on spending for october, cleaning up my cupboard and getting ready for the new month lol. I finished this one off this weekend – my other half played hooky from work and we went up to our friends cottage…it’s 3 hours north of toronto..and when i say cottage, i use that term loosely. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, giant kitchen, floor to ceiling glass windows….loft room, fireplace…outside sauna and hot tub…built in barbeque outside with a bar and stools…giant picnic table on the balcony – fire pit on the grass befoe the dock. so much amazing. just the two of us all weekend, doing nothing but enjoying the fire, cooking, eating, playing boardgames and watching the outside go by. saunas and hot tub drinking and relaxing…2 glorious days of wonderful. this tea was part of that weekend and will be my free tea for last quarter, IF none of the winter teas float my boat. :)

OMG that must be one damn epic cottage. Glad you were able to relax!

keychange

Wow, that cottage sounds like a slice of heaven!

OMGsrsly

Sounds dreamy. :)

Kristal

Sounds like a lovely weekend with lovely tea!

Alyssa

Sounds like more of a chalet than a cottage. Lucky you! What a nice weekend.

Sil

haha yeah @ alyssa… i laughed when my other half called it a cottage. me: this is nicer than every house i’ve lived in. ever.

drank Spiced Pumpkin by DAVIDsTEA
7475 tasting notes

gross. do not like. And i was so hopeful based on the smell. Sadly the maple in this gets in the way of the rest of the tea. Pumpkin, cinnamon etc..yes, maple to this? no. It’s just kind of a weirdly sweet, strange brew. blech.

Final Count: 107

I remember having this and disliking the sourness of the honeybush. I agree, this one was not a keeper.

Evol Ving Ness

I likely it initially and then there was some odd bitter thing going on half-way through the cup. Chicory? Dandelion? I have to review the ingredient list and try again. The tea had such promise from the smell alone.

Kristal

Aw, sorry to hear you didn’t like it :(

Sil

i don’t like a lot of david’s teas – the added sweetner and such annoys me.

Kristal

I hear you with the sweetner- that can bug me too.

drank Ginger Beer by DAVIDsTEA

oh. i like this one. I have a free bag of tea that i can pick from DT – so i was exploring the new teas. the gentleman working there said new teas out next week, and a possible sale, so i may hold off for a little while longer. THIS is on my short list though as both a herbal AND a ginger tea. I do love me some ginger. :) It’s not too intense – i think the apple helps dial the heat back, but man. yum.

Kristal

Glad to hear you liked this one! I really enjoyed it as well :)

Sil

i love ginger teas

Cavocorax

New teas next week? :O Does that mean we’re done with Fall right after Halloween? INTERESTING.

Sil

that’s what he said… i’m in no way responsible if he lied. :)

Sil

but he told me to wait on redeeming my 50g, since i didn’t have something i was dying for

Christina / BooksandTea

If they’re getting rid of the fall stuff soon, I’m glad I got some Pumpkin Chai when I could.

Cavocorax

I did see an email saying it was time to stock on Pumpkin Chai, so it makes sense they’re phasing it out. Everywhere else is already Christmas everything. (And… I’m guilty. I bought Eggnog Spice Coffee, and Candy Cane Hot Chocolate from Bulk Barn today)

OMGsrsly

I bought this one but I still haven’t tried it. Do you think it’d work as a cold brew?

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.
