My hunny got this one as a to go iced tea.

It is amazing! This one really does taste like juice or punch. It’s absolutely amazing. I see at least 100g in my future for this one.

Had this one as a to-go today.
Amazing!

This tea is delicious! Fantastic coconut flavour against a nice light base. The white tea is the perfect pairing for this tea. Nothing added to this one today. It doesn’t need it.
I purchased 25g of this one but I foresee 100g tin in my future.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

I love the idea of this tea. It’s chocolatey, it’s got some fruity-goodness in it… it smells like heaven, but I found myself not as happy with it as I thought I would.

I like the chocolate part, but the chocolate in Read My Lips seems a bit nicer.
I found that the rose petals didn’t work for me personally. It’s definitely not my thing.
I can appreciate this tea for what it is, but it’s not for me. I didn’t like it as much as I had hoped I would.

drank Kokomo Green by DAVIDsTEA

I just got this one last night from my dad. He’s been great for picking up teas for me! He’s awesome! [and not just for getting me tea ;)]

I’m wishing I had steeped this for only 3 mins and added a bit more of the fruit. It’s definitely got a bit of grassiness that you would expect from a green tea. The fruit is nice but definitely on the light side. I’m going to have to have some more of it before I fully give it a rating. He got me lots too so I have tons of time to rate it :)

drank Chance Combinations by Custom

1tsp of English Caramel at the Tea Haus
1tsp of Courtlodge from the Metropolitan Tea Company

The last bit of my courtlodge was combined with English Caramel, and steeped for 3 mins.

I found that the caramel flavour was still there and nice and strong. I didn’t lose any flavour really from the courtlodge. If anything, the courtlodge just seemed to enhance the malty, basic black tea flavour that I get from black teas.

I love the English Caramel, but I’m finding that I’ve definitely hit my limit with this tea. It’s really good, but I think I’m done with this one. I may give what I have left away to a friend. I don’t know if I’ll finish it or not…

Sipdown! (or at least pretty close to it)

I had my last little bit on its own yesterday. Funny story, I made this one, then when I went to add my milk and sugar, I found out I was out of milk! Booo! So, I went to Tim’s to get a cinnamon roll and I got a couple of the little milk thingys. They didn’t even charge me for it! So sweet!
Anyway, three mins is far too long for this tea. I needed to do more of a 2.5mins or so. It was too strong yesterday.

I’m not sure I’ll miss this one now that it’s out.

drank Rhubarb Cream by The Tea Haus

Had this one this morning, so doing this by memory.
I was surprised by it, but not in a good way. I feel like I really didn’t get as much of the flavours as I had hoped to have. It wasn’t great…

But also, I may have been distracted as I was officially starting my new job today. It’s fantastic! So that might have been a bit of why I don’t remember much about this tea.

Never judge a tea by first steep!

Decided to give this one another go. I didn’t care for it the first time, but now I like it!

I steeped it for 4 mins, but I think I could get away with either 3 or 3:30 minutes for the flavours to be really nice and not bitter. I was really surprised about this tea this time around. I added milk and sugar and it’s really made a nice creamy, berry-flavoured tea. It’s quite nice. I like it a lot this time around.

I think I’m starting to like the fruity black teas all of a sudden, when for the longest time I didn’t like them at all. It’s amazing how things can change in no time at all.

This is it.
I’m officially working my last shift at my current job.
I have another job lined up to start technically next week (I’m doing some training tomorrow).

And so, my thought was, why not finish with a zing! This tea is the pick me up I needed this morning ‘cause I didn’t sleep well last night, plus, it lets me start this day on a real kick!

I gotta find out if you can buy this saigon cinnamon on its own. I’d love to try it in some of my baking! I bet it would be amazing!

And as I finish off this day, I will raise a glass and thank God for the new adventure that he has given to me in this new job.
I can’t wait to get started!

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA

Finally trying this one!

The mango is definitely the most predominant flavour in this tea. It’s pretty juicy tasting. The black tea part wasn’t too much as I had mostly fruit it seemed in my bag. But I’m find with that. I didn’t want the black tea to be too overpowering.

I quite enjoyed this one. It’s similar to another one I have, but this is nice ‘cause it has the actual fruit that the other one doesn’t have. This would make an amazing iced tea I think. If I end up with more of it, I might just try that. Otherwise, I think I’ll just finish this one hot as I only have enough for one more cup.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

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
