drank Mango Turmeric by DAVIDsTEA
7848 tasting notes

i like mango teas. I don’t think i have issues with tumeric. Let me tell you though, i asked for 10g of this one, and didn’t notice when she decided i needed 20g until i got home. Opened it and man was this strongly tumeric – moreso that what i smelled in the store. i ended up brewing this one and not being able to bring myself to take a sip of it until it was nearly cooled down. something about the smell was just not working for me. However, once i finally tried it, i can get behind it lol. I wish there was more mango to this as it’s mostly in the tail end of the sip, but it’s there. This is a spicy tea, so you need to be in the mood for that, which is funny to me since it’s supposed to sooth an upset tummy. Not sure how that works, but i don’t drink tea for health reasons lol i will probably be good with just the 20g of this i received, but we’ll see. I do like my spicy teas.

Final Count: 126 (because i just HAD to go pick up a couple new teas from david’s…)

This was pretty good cold, just FYI :)


good to know! thanks :)


Turmeric is anti-inflammatory. Ginger for upset tummy. My SA tried the same thing. Tried to sell me 18g. I said no, I want 10g and made her remeasure. Defintely agree with you…light on the mango and heavy on the spices. But tasty.


Really enjoyed this tea, but I like spice teas, so that’s my bias coming into play ;)


kristal – if you enjoy spicy teas and haven’t tried it yet…kaphaa from tea gschwedner.


thanks for the suggestion! I’ll look it up :)

drank Poached Pear by DAVIDsTEA
7848 tasting notes

This came out “again” today and, having not had this the first time david’s was selling, i stopped by to pick some up since i DO enjoy pear teas. Also, herbal teas are something i’m allowed to pick up here and there as i don’t have an abundance of them. Overall thoughts on this one? Not bad but not a 90’s sort of tea for me. I’m not sure this really reminds me of POACHED pears, but it is a pretty typical pear tea. There’s a bit much in the way of cinnamon to me, but it comes and goes with various sips, so it’s not the end of the world to me. A decent cup, though i’m not sure yet if i’ll pick up 50g. especially with the tea festival coming up, and my small purchase of picking up more french toast.

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.
