Okay, so I’m not going to rate this tea yet.
I brought a small sample of this one to work with me to try and I thought it was very strange looking frankly. I didn’t know what to expect. So I made the tea, and I’ve tried it… it’s so weak… And then I looked at the pic of it again, and well, I know why. I only ended up steeping the fruit. The sample that I brought from home didn’t have any black tea in it. haha that would be the problem!! I only had the fruit. And while I still am getting a somewhat nice flavour from it, it definitely isn’t what I think this tea is suppose to taste like.
I’ll try again at home. This time WITH the black tea leaves in it.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

I have had a bad tea day. I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe it’s cause I went to the dentist this morning, but nothing has turned out right today. I made two separate batches of Check Mate (from Davids) and burnt them both! This is the first time I’ve done this, so it was really bothersome to me. I love Check Mate! Don’t worry, I haven’t given up on it, I will make it again and love it. I’ll just be sure to not burn it next time. I think I need to get a tea thermometer.
Any-hoo, then went on to make another tea that I loved in the past from another company, and it wasn’t good either! I just couldn’t get it to turn out. This made ma really sad.
So, finally I jumped over to this tea. My goodness! This is exactly what I needed. It is sweet and lovely and I added a mess of sugar to it, but I don’t care. I wanted something sweet and yummy and this did the trick! Finally a tea turned out today! And I don’t even care that it’s after dinner and I’m drinking a black tea. I needed something to work out!
Why can’t this tea be permanent…? Oh lovely pepperminty tea. I love you… Next year, if you come back, I will be purchasing more of you.

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA

So I’m trying this tea for the first time today at work, and I think I made it too weak. I do get the amaretto taste from it, but I don’t find it to be that strong. I would have loved a stronger kick of flavour. I’m going to try it again before I rate it though. I think I need to make it a lot stronger.

Had this one again the other day with the girls at work. I made it very strong, and then added milk and sugar like I did with Santa’s Secret. It was amazing. Again, it was a lovely creamy candy cane of sorts but with a chocolately touch to it. Absolutely lovely. Almost like a chocolate mint patty!!

This tea is quite nice. The first time I drank it, I only noticed the graham cracker taste, and a little of the marshmallow.
Today, I can taste everything: the marshmallow, the graham cracker, the chocolate… It’s delicious. :) I think adding milk definitely helped too. It added a creaminess to it.
I like it! :)

Yummy! I love Green Rooibos teas. And this one is amazing. I absolutely love it. It’s sweet and lovely. It’s gotta be a staple in the cupboard forever.

I had this one this morning/early afternoon. Unfortunately, I didn’t really find this tea to be too memorable. I was struggling to taste the white chocolate pieces. But that also could be because I thought it was a dark chocolate in there… Oops!! Anyway, I did like that it did have a bit of a kick to it. Not in the hot spicy way, but it had an almost zing to it.
I’m not too sure if I’d buy this one again, as I have a few other chai teas that I do enjoy a bit more, but it was lovely to get to try this one. I might try what the other reviewer did on here and steep it longer just to see what happens. Maybe I’ll love it more when I do.

drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
247 tasting notes

So, this is one from my advent calendar from December that I didn’t try. There were a few that the day I was suppose to have them, I didn’t want to try them, so they have been hanging around since, just waiting and hoping that I’ll find them, and want to try them.
Anyway, so I finally tried this one and it lovely. I agree with a lot of the reviews I read so far about this one. The lemongrass definitely was the main flavour coming through on this tea. But at the same time, I love lemongrass, so I don’t mind. I can’t really pick up much on the other flavours though. Like said before, the lemongrass is the first and really only flavour that you taste. Although, there is a bit of a lovely, subtle zing to it too, that I’m enjoying.
I’m having this one without sugar, which is unsual for me. Normally I add sugar to most of my teas, but this one I didn’t think of it, and I’m glad I didn’t. It’s so lovely on its own. Now I’m going to have some Three Lemon Green again, just to see how they compare.

I have had such a hard time figuring out this tea. I didn’t realize it was going to taste cinnamon-y, so that really threw me off. It smells lovely! The smell alone transports you to another place.
Like I said, the taste really gets me though. I do like it, but I have to get use to it. It’s really a strange tea.

So, it’s the end of January, and the weather is acting weird out there, and it’s been a long week at work. So, I thought I’d dive into this tea again, as it reminds me of warmer times and sunshine.
This tea has definitely helped me out today. It’s lifting my spirits a bit. It’s light and fruity and very delicious.

Bio

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
