I didn’t care for this one hot. I found it to be too tart from the hibiscus.
SO, I’m trying this one chilled! I’ve got it cooling right now. I’ve added some sugar and it looks like it’s going to be a strong one. It is DARK. I can’t wait to try it. :)
Will update once it’s done!

UPDATE: So, I was going to drink this one before I left for work today but I didn’t. So anyway, here I am after work wanting to drink some tea, but not wanting to go through all the motions of making it. hahaha
So, when I said dark, think like red wine dark. I poured a small glass of this into one of my new double-walled glasses and it is DARK. BUT, taste, I love it! I’m so happy that I didn’t give this one away like I had originally planned to. Because it’s so strong and fruity, it almost tastes like juice; a berry juice of sorts. I’m totally loving it.
Given though, as much as I love it, I probably wouldn’t get this one again only ’cause I have other fruity teas that I love even more. And they are teas that I love both hot and chilled. Still, I will definitely enjoy what I have. :)

This one smelt like bubblegum dry. My husband was the first to notice that.
Steeped, it smells more like apples. It’s subtle, but it’s there.

I think I might have needed to add more leaves to this. It seems a bit weak. I did one tsp per cup for 5 mins. I think I might try more like 1.5tsp. The apple flavour that I expected wasn’t there. I’m kind of disappointed a bit with this one. I know it might just be that I didn’t steep it enough, but I dunno. I’m going to have to try this one again before I rate it.
To me, it tastes like a plain rooibos with a hint of cinnamon.

I didn’t know that this one was called Georgia Peach. I bought this one, and where I bought it from must have dropped the first part of the name when they made up the label. I just thought it was called Sweet Peach Rooibos, but after looking over this, I’m pretty sure this is the one that I have.
It is a lovely peach flavoured tea. I love the rooibos base with it. It is a very good pairing. I like the fact that it is an almost juicy peach flavour that comes through.
I must agree with the other reviewer here. The DavidsTea Southern Belle (Peach tea) wasn’t good to me. I couldn’t drink it. My husband seems to not mind it too much, but I can’t drink it. So I find that this tea is a very nice one to have on hand. It is just about perfect for flavouring of a peach tea.
I’m just finishing up my stash of it, so I’ll have to get more again at some point.

I didn’t do this one justice today. I made it far too weak. I should have added more leaves to it.
But, I do love the combination of chocolate and almond and raspberry flavours. I find this tea to be very unique in itself.
I really wish I had made this one stronger as I really wanted to enjoy this tea properly. I know in the past when I’ve made it properly it always turns out so good. It is a wave of flavours that are just amazing.
Maybe tomorrow morning I’ll try again.

drank Fireside S'mores Tea by Teaopia

I’m very excited about this tea. I know that I have logged this one before, but I have to tell what happened this weekend!
So, I needed to get away. It’s been a rough year and a half, and I needed a break. So, I went to see my in-laws. I know most people find their in-laws to be stressful or whatever, but not me. I’ve been blessed with the best in-laws I could ever ask for. My mother-in-law and I get along so well. We spent two days together this weekend, just the two of us and we had a blast. I’m so blessed.
Anyway, because I knew I was going to be going down in the area, I called up the Teaopia and asked if they had any of this tea for sale. They said they only had a 1000g bag! And it’s 75% off ‘cause Teaopia is switching over. The price was out of this world awesome, so I picked up a bag. Now I will be drinking this tea for probably a few years and loving every minute of it!
I’m sad to see Teaopia go. The sales are making it less sad, but still sad. I hope that Teavana will be good. :) I’m excited to try their teas.


It’s nice to have a person in your world that is some calm-in-the-craziness. I’m thinking about my person now and smiling.


Yeah it was a great weekend away. I’m so glad I was able to get together with some friends and family I haven’t seen in a while. I definitely needed the moments of calm.

drank Tangerine Dream by Teaopia

My mom-in-law got this one as it’s one of the ones on clearance from Teaopia. I got to try some ‘cause I’m visiting :)
This tea is so sweet and delicious. I’m really enjoying it! The green rooibos base is perfect for this light, fruity blend. I think the pairing is very good.
Yummy yum!

drank Sangria by Teaopia

I’m visiting my in-laws (I’ve got the greatest in-laws ever!) and my mother-in-law is in love with this tea, so I thought I’d give it a try.
The colour steeped is so beautiful. It’s a deep pink colour that actually reminds me of the Kanpe tea colour when steeped. Taste was tart but also a lovely fruity taste. I really enjoyed this tea. I’d probably have it again.
My mum-in-law has hugely stocked up on this one. I’m glad she loves it so much!

Dear Three Lemon Green,

Every since I found out that I’m allergic to grass, I’ve been quite nervous to have you again… you and your lemony goodness. I’ve been worried about how I would feel after I had you. But tonight I’m trying you again and I’m hoping that you treat me well. I’m really hoping ‘cause you taste amazing. The perfect lemony taste with the perfect green rooibos base.
Anyway, if you and I get along for the rest of the night, then I think I’m going to make a nice big pitcher of you iced.

A huge fan

This is a sample I got… probably almost a year ago, but have yet to try. I got it with one of my online orders I believe.

The smell of this one is quite strong of cinnamon and cardamon.
Taste-wise I found this one to be kinda weak also. I expected a punch of flavours, but they weren’t as strong as I expected. But it does a nice chai taste despite it. The cinnamon and cardamon are probably the strongest tastes within this tea.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
247 tasting notes

This summer has been one for heat! We have had at least two heat waves, and I was starting to think that maybe there wasn’t an end in sight! But this morning I was struggling to wake up (which I do on a good day hahaha), and I realized it’s because it’s dark and rainy out! The heat has broken for at least today and been replaced with crazy amounts of rain! Maybe now my flowers will come back to life in the garden!
So I thought, what better day than today, to enjoy a favourite such as pumpkin chai! It is such a warm comforting tea to me.
This tea screams fall. It’s the perfect cup of tea to snuggle up with on a gloomy-looking day such as today. And although I have to work this morning, I brought some with me and I’m really enjoying the soothing comfort of this tea. It is delightful!

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

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 and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

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!
