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.

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is lovely. It has a smooth orangey taste to it. I didn’t make it too strong, but I know that if I made it stronger it would be even better. It is delightful. It’s a refreshing tea. And at the same time, warm and comforting.
I would LOVE to try it chilled. And maybe with milk and a little more sugar. I could see it tasting like a creamsicle.

This steeper is awesome. I have the 32oz one, and I absolutely love it. It works like a charm and I’ve never had a problem with it.
The filter in the bottom is awesome for all tea leaves, including the small rooibos leaves. I’m hoping to get the small one soon to replace the one I have from a different company.

drank Raspberry Nectar by Tea Forte

I got this one from a coworker. I found it to be a bit tart. Maybe I let it steep a bit longer than I should have, but the colour that came from this one was amazing!
I love the little tea bags it comes in too. It makes it look more like a loose-leaf but just in a bag. The little leaf steam to hook over your teacup edge is also a lovely feature.

I got this one as a Christmas gift from a friend, and just got the chance to try it.
I must admit, the first smell of this one steeped, I was very unsure of it. The first steeping I did, I only did a few minutes, as I didn’t want it to be too strong or go bitter (forgetting this is a herbal tea). My first few sips, I was so unsure. I added a sprinkling of sugar to it, and it really made this tea pop! It became a sweet chocolately treat.
Second steeping, I actually forgot about it for like 5 to 10 mins or so. Maybe longer, I’m not too sure. I was sorta worried that it might have gone bitter or too strong for me to handle, but after adding another sprinkling of sugar, it was pretty good! But it was missing something. I added a splash of milk to it (which normally I would NEVER do with a herbal), and it made this tea come alive for me! It transformed into almost a smooth, chocolatey chai tea. I say smooth, because it didn’t have the same punch that a chai normally has; it was a softer chai taste, but still had that little extra to it. The second cup was inhaled!
I could see this one holding up in a latte for sure, if you make it strong. I must try it! I’ll update this when I do.

I got this one as a sample with an online order that I placed. I must admit, to me, this tea isn’t that memorable. I wanted to really love it, but I didn’t really get the love feeling from this one.
For me, all the flavours kinda just mixed together and there really wasn’t anything that stood out. The walnut flavour was probably the strongest that I got out of it, but even then, I dunno.
I’m wondering if maybe I’ve oversteeped it?

drank Orange Pekoe by Red Rose
248 tasting notes

I love this tea. I always drink it with milk and sugar. It’s the tea that I always fall back to when I’m just wanting something quick and simple, but delicious. It’s the tea that I always go to when I need a quick wake-up in the morning, or if I don’t feel very great in the morning.

Update: So, I tried to make myself a pot of this tea on the weekend, and I just couldn’t drink it… I felt so bad ‘cause normally I love this tea, but this time… It wasn’t good. I think my taste buds must be changing. Like I said, normally I love this tea, but I just couldn’t do it.
I think now I just prefer the fresher taste that loose-leaf teas have to offer. Sorry Red Rose Orange Pekoe! :(

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

This is such a lovely tea! It is warm and apple/cinnamon-y and it’s just lovely. My cousin and I loved it.
The flavours work so well together and the almond pieces add just enough of a special touch that it’s perfect. I’d love to see this one stick around longer than just for the winter season. I could see me drinking this one in the fall too, watching the leaves change colours.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
248 tasting notes

This tea when I opened the bag smelled like Cinnabon. I couldn’t get over how sweet it smelled, but in a warm cinnamon way. I wanted to warm it up and eat it right away.
I steeped it and it turned bright pink, which I really didn’t expect at all! But it added some nice charm to it.
This tea mixes well with a bunch of different teas. I’ve only added it to Pumpkin Chai, but I have friends that have added it to a bunch of different ones and they have loved it.
This tea goes really on its own too. I’ll drink it when I want something sweet and want something different.
DavidsTea, why do you have to make so many awesome teas!?!

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
