drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
325 tasting notes

What’s a tisane, I asked myself this afternoon as I went to try out a new tea. I’m not sure if I’ve had one before. Dictionary.com describes a tisane as an “aromatic or herb-flavored tea.” So yes, I’ve had a tisane before! Why they don’t just call it a herbal tea, I’ll never know. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Anyway, this tea is SWEET! on it’s own. I can’t get over how sweet and almost tart it is. But the flavours of apple and passionfruit offer a lovely pairing that I’m really enjoying. I have enough for another cup or two thankfully, so I’ll enjoy this one a bit longer. I could actually see this making a really great iced tea, and I’m not a big one on the iced teas! So, how about that!

Anyway, the defense finds this tea: Delicious, but probably won’t get again. Although I’m enjoying this one, I don’t think I’d be the type to grab this one all that often. Glad to be able to enjoy it!

Tisane basically = herbal tea. Or a “tea” not containing actual tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant. Some people just like being snobby and differentiating between the two haha.

And yeah, this one packs a punch!

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
