321 tasting notes

Last night we had a few friends over and for the first time they saw my tea cupboard! haha My cousin that came over said she was jealous. haha

Anyway, so my husband mentioned that there are a few teas that I have that I really haven’t drank ‘cause I don’t care for them even though I bought 100g thinking I would fall in love. And one he mentioned was Ice Cream Cake by Davidstea. I bought a bunch of that one, but really don’t care for it all that much. It’s not terrible, it’s just too sweet and not really my thing come to find out. So my thought this morning was to dig it out of the back of the cupboard and mix it with something to make it less sweet. And guess what?! It worked!

So for this mixing I paired 1.5 tsp of Ice Cream Cake from Davidstea with 1 tsp of Canadian Breakfast from The Metropolitan Tea Company!

What a fantastic pairing! I added milk and it made it nice! It wasn’t crazy sweet. If anything, it was more of a plain tea with a hint of something else sweet, but not crazy sweet thankfully! I told my hunny that I like the combo and would probably end up finishing it now and I think he’s happy. I know I’ll enjoy this combo.

I’ve had a couple of teas like that, that either have too strong or odd a flavouring, or too weak a base for me to appreciate them on their own, but that I have been able to finish or even come to appreciate once blended with another. The joys of having lots of teas to spare for experimentation!

lol definitely :)

I’ve been doing something very similar with David’s Red Velvet Cake. Waaaay too sweet on its own, so I’ve been pairing it with H&S Florence. How people can drink those cake teas on their own is beyond me.

Profile

Bio

I’m a 30yr old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon. Currently I’m actively looking for markets and avenues to get published.

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer and “mom” to two adorable “fur babies” (I have two awesome cats). I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream) and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too). White teas are rapidly becoming a favourite too. But, they must be flavoured white teas.

I don’t care for mate, green, oolongs, matcha, or puerh (although the puerh cake tea I have may convert me to a puerhs).

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D

Keep Calm and Put The Kettle On!
