380 Tasting Notes

I’ve had this tea for a lot longer than I thought. I’ve probably had it like two years now! It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since I first heard about and fell in love with Davidstea! When my friend introduced me to Davidstea, I really didn’t know what to expect! With flavours such as Movie night and Buttered Rum being my first couple of picks, I knew that it was going to be a fun journey. Even now coming to love the more ‘normal’ of Davidstea’s teas, has been fantastic!
Anyway, I’m a huge fan of Davids. I love the quality and the taste, I love the flavours and the customer service… it’s just a fun company.

As a side note, I’m not an employee of Davidstea, nor am I endorsed by them in anyway if that was ever a question. I just LOVE their teas! They’re so much fun and so delicious!

Anyway, I’m revisiting this one as i’ve had it a long time now and I’m starting to try to finish up some of the ones I’ve had a long time or ones that I haven’t had in a long time.
It’s just as amazing as I remember it being. I’m enjoying it so much! I need to make some iced tea out of this, for real! So yummy.

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA

My husband has been drinking this one like water! Every time I turn around he’s making an iced tea of this one. It’s amazing. I absolutely love it too. He’s given me tastes of it as he’s made it and it always turns out delicious. I don’t think I’ve actually tried this one hot yet! haha
So far this summer 350g of this one has been bought by my husband and me. :)

For some unknown reason, I stopped «following» you? must have unfollowed by mistake, just remedied that :-)

drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I’m really not sure what to think of this one on its own. I feel like it’s okay, but not fantastic. I dunno. I added milk, no sugar to this one, which made it nice.
I didn’t like the slick on this one. It seemed really bad compared to what I’m use to. I think I’d be up to trying this one in a paper filter and seeing if that helps lessen the slick.

Anyway, I think I would add this one to another one to finish it. I’d be up to mixing it with a plain black tea. It would add to the base and lessen the sweetness.

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

Delicious! I added too much sugar, but I am enjoying it. I’m starting to think I like this one best really hot. It’s starting to cool and I think the hibiscus is coming out a bit more than I would have liked, but it still really good.

My hunny has saved some to make an iced tea with it tomorrow. It’s chilling in the fridge right now. I hope he enjoys it too.

drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
380 tasting notes

I didn’t make this one strong enough today. I should have added more leaf to it.
This is one of the ones that I got but didn’t really drink too much or really find that I was drawn to. I’m hoping I like it more as time goes on. It’s been in the cupboard for a bit now, so I’ll have to starting mixing and using it up soon.

I do like how chocolatey it is though. Mmmmmmm chocolate.

My goodness. Making this one at home and it’s just as delicious!
Don’t add anything to this one. It doesn’t need it. Seriously.

Just awesome coconut goodness!

drank Kenyan Tinderet by DAVIDsTEA

I tried this one on the advice of one of the customer service folks at Davidstea. I thought I might as well.

She recommended a 45sec steep for the first one. I figured that would be far too short. How could you get enough flavour out of it for it to be enough? But I followed her recommendations and I’m glad I did. It ended up being fantastic. It’s strong but not bitter and it was quite nice too. I enjoyed it a lot. I will have to do another few steepings to tell you more about the flavours I get from it. But otherwise, quite nice indeed!

I haven’t had this one in ages! I’ve been trying so hard to hold onto it and not drink it all up right away that I haven’t had it in over a year and I’m wondering now why I did that?!

This tea is so nice. I think mine isn’t as strong as it was before, but it’s still lovely and still delicious!

I think it’s just that I find a tea that I love and I don’t want to have to get use to not having it in my cupboard. So many times I’ll find a tea that I love but it’s only seasonal. Then, when it’s all gone… it really makes me sad.

I always end up liking the teas that don’t stick around… I believe this one is permanent, but I’m not too sure. Teavana is harder for me to get to though, so I don’t usually get their teas… plus this is one of two that I actually like.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA

Delicious! I hadn’t tried this one yet even though I’ve had it for a while now. It’s really quite tasty. I liked the fruitiness of this one and that it didn’t have any bitter tones at all.

I don’t remember much more about this one as I had it this morning, but I’d definitely have it again.

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is smooooooth. I wasn’t sure what to expect of this tea, but having it now, it’s amazing how smooth it really is. It’s delicious. It’s not too strong or bitter. I’m surprised by this one for sure.

I’m going to enjoy this one.

I realize now too, I used like double of the leaves I was suppose to. Silly sleepy brain of mine thought I was using a bigger cup. I’ll have to try this one again and use the proper amount. Even at double it was amazing.

Profile

Bio

I’m a 30-something-year-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. I’m a proud new mom of a sweet little baby boy born Feb. 3/15.
As well as “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). And greens are kind of growing on me too. I’m starting to realize just how important steeping times/temperatures/amounts of tea make all the difference in the world for them!

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
