Delish! I like this one a lot. It was a soft, sweet peachy flavour that was nice and soothing/relaxing, and it was prefect for the evening. I’m really going to enjoy this one.

I went to the Banff store today and it was awesome! I never thought I’d ever get to go there and it was made possible. It is a really sweet store with great service. I loved being there.
This was the tea of the day. It was delicious! I’d have this again. It was so good. Lovely orange flavour.

Lucky you! In Banff for Christmas!!

Actually was just there for the day yesterday. I’m in Calgary for the weekend. My husband’s company flew us out here. It’s pretty amazing considering I’m from Ont. I’m really hoping I get to go back to Banff someday. I can’t get over how amazing it is there. I’d love a chance to see more.

I’m just going to make a quick note of this one as I had this a few days ago.
This one smells like Bailey’s. It took me a while, but I finally figured out that is it. It smells good.

Taste-wise: It’s very good. I’m gonna have to have it again, but I remember it being very good. I’ll update again soon with more thoughts.

I had this as a tea-to-go this week and it was pretty good. I wish the vanilla had been a bit stronger in it, but it was still pretty good. I would have it again, but I don’t think I would buy any at this time.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

I like this tea! It’s so warm and maple-y flavoured. I enjoy the toffee flavours coming out and I love that it’s got some green rooibos base to it. Maybe I’m crazy or alone in feeling this way, but I love me some green rooibos and I feel it isn’t capitalized the way it should!

Anyway, I love it. And I know this is probably terrible to say… but I seriously think that this would taste really good with milk! I dunno, but it sounds good to me.. maybe next time… :)

I never understand the taboo about putting milk in tea. I say if it tastes good, just do it! I’ve been known to sneak some in my dessert rooibos on occasion haha.

TheKesser

I don’t mind adding milk to black teas. I find most of the time I can’t seem to drink black without milk, but otherwise, I don’t usually. I dunno… I’m gonna try this with milk next time. i think it’d be good :)

Yum, it would probably taste like one of those maple sugar candies with the added creaminess

Mmmm. I haven’t had one of those maple sugar candies in ages!

drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA
321 tasting notes

I am totally stealing this term and idea from PatchworkSheep! I’m making a franken-tea!

It’s half Chocolate cake and half salted caramel. I’m actually really enjoying it! It’s chocolate-y and slightly caramel and I’m even picking up on the salted part. I’m liking all the mixtures. It’s pretty tastey. I’d highly recommend it to anyone. Very yummy. mmmmm chocolate-y goodness. It’s a great option for anyone craving a hot chocolate too! I added some milk and it made it creamy and delicious.

If you want a really decadent creation, make this combination of tea and then stir in a spoonful of hot chocolate mix. I do that when I need chocolate RIGHT NOW but there`s no chocolate in the house. :)

TheKesser

oooooooo that sounds good!!!

Love these. They are small, but nice to have with a tea that you just want to sip. I love the double-walled look.

I have been looking at these mugs for MONTHS! Not even exaggerating. I finally decided to get one. I got the Eggnog snowflake one apart of the winter collection. It’s so pretty. I’m totally loving it. It is the perfect size and I love the filter with the lid. It just is awesome.

I’m looking to get the glass one with the DavidsTea log on it in the spring. :)

PatchworkSheep

YES. This is by far the best mug I’ve found. I’ve got 2 glass ones now, as well as a a noble mug version and the giant one. LOVE them! Seems weird to rave about a mug like this, but they’re that good.

TheKesser

lol it’s so true! I didn’t think I’d love them as much as I do, but I really do. I was thinking I could even request one for Christmas! It’s coming up soon!
I like the option of steeping a single glass instead of a whole steeper. It really is perfect.

These look like the glasses I got from Teaopia before they closed, but without the filter. I have three sizes. A mini almost like shot glass size, an 8oz and a 12oz. I LOVE them. I think they are so nice to look at and they keep the outside of the glass nice and cool… or warm (if you are drinking something cold). I love these. Highly recommend.

This travel mug is brilliant. The only thing I wish was different about this one was that it was bigger. It keeps everything nice and hot for hours. I actually burnt my tongue on the tea not realizing it was going to stay that hot for that long. It’s been awesome to have when I know I’m going to be outside in the cold. It keeps it nice and hot even though the outside of the container doesn’t feel hot.

I definitely recommend this travel mug.

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!
