drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA
472 tasting notes

This tea is particularly delicious with some brown sugar. Just so you know. ;)

Oh, and I have a little rant about DavidsTea’s marketing. Did you guys see the latest, where they say winter’s coming, that the fall teas are going fast, so you better hurry and stock up? For goodness sake, it’s only early October! Geez!

But WHAT IF THEY RUN OUT. :0

That’s what they do to you!!! Ahhhh!!!

Aaahhhh!!!

Eventually, the Starks are right. ‘Just around the corner’ is one of my least favourite marketing phrases. If the winter teas aren’t for another month and a half, I hope they won’t run out.

Yeah I saw that and insantly panicked. Then I did the math. What they mean is “we’re halfway through fall and you guys didn’t buy enough, but we don’t want to actually give you a sale, so we’ll just panic you instead!”

I think I’d like a bit more of the cocoberry mate, but I could probably pass on the rest.

OMGsrsly

Excellent translation, Cavo. :) I think I’d rather wait for a sale. Or new teas!

Profile

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
