drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
632 tasting notes

This was an “almost” sipdown, since I still have a little leaf, but not enough for a cup. Fortunately, I just ordered more, so it’s all good! I’ve been kind of on an ordering binge because there are all these great fall teas out from different companies, and I want to get some before they’re gone. I also justify this binge by saying that fall is my favorite season of flavors, and I’ll be drinking these well into winter. It may take me that long, honestly!

This tea really surprised me. I don’t love green teas as much as I want to. I really like genmaicha, but that’s pretty much where it ends. This tea really tastes like baked apples, so it’s kind of cheating, but I still get the benefit of less caffeine, and all the other benefits green tea is touted for, I suppose. I’m really looking forward to having more of this around, as well as more pumpkin chai, sugar and spice, and all the other teas from other companies I ordered. ;D Yay for Fall!

I was so surprised with this when I tasted in store. It was so good that I had to buy 50 grams! I also am on an ordering binge. Della Terra needs to stop releasing a couple new teas every week plus the percentage off sales. It is killing me.

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

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! :)
