The husband and I made a pitcher of this one iced about a week and a half ago and I never thought to log it.

I loved it. Thought it was really quite good. But I’m not so sure the husband loved it that much.. which is funny ‘cause he’s pretty good usually for fruity teas. Meh, either way, I’ll enjoy this one.

I have had this one SEVERAL times and apparently never logged it here. It’s sad for me to say that I really don’t like this one at all. It’s too strong of cinnamon for me, which is really funny considering I love saigon chai so much which is even stronger of a tea.

Anyways, I don’t care for this one at all. I almost feel like I need to cut it with a plain rooibos or something… maybe if I combined it with the vanilla rooibos chai?


I totaly agree, the cinnAmon is wayyyy too powerful


Yeah it’s pretty crazy how strong it is.

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA

I forgot to review this one from… last week? The week before that…? Either way, I had it and I’m not sure I like it. It is definitely pineapple and it’s definitely sweet and fruity. But at the same time, I don’t like the grilled part of this tea. It has that almost smokey or grilled taste that you would get from a bar-b-q which is great that they nailed it, but at the same time, I don’t like that addition to my teas sadly. Maybe it would be better iced…

Finished this one last week as a latte. Still delicious, but I think I may have either over leafed or over steeped as I found the flavour wasn’t as nice as last time I had it. Either way, enjoyed it and would get again, but I’m planning to wait until my collection has depleted a bit more. I have quite a long way to go.

The look of this one is very strange. Like very strange… I’m not sure what to think of the look of it especially with the raspberry leaves. But I decided to give this one a try as I really wanted to know if it was good or not. I had this one as an iced tea. And I loved it. It was light and fruity. Slight raspberry taste to it. It was great.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA

I use to HATE this tea, which I know I mentioned last review, but I’m seriously surprised that I like this tea now.

Anyways, I made this into a latte last night and I found it to be too much unsweetened, but once I added some agave it really made it a delicious treat! I love the balance of chocolate and orange in this one. I think I Might be able to finish up the small amount I have of this one now!

drank Wild Black Yunnan by DAVIDsTEA

I really liked this one too. It’s got a nice malty and earthiness but very little earthiness to it. It’s so good. I added some sugar so a bit sweet, but good.

This one makes such a great iced tea. I had that today. So yum!!

Oh my… wow.

This tea has had last night. Talk about smokey!! Wow. It was like drinking a liquid campfire. So smokey! It’s not my thing at all, but I do want to try it as a marinade or a seasoning for a meat of some kind. If I can find a good recipe, then this Wednesday we’re going to make it.

I think a marinade would work well. :) I like Lapsong iced with sweetener, but it definitely isn’t for everyone!


Yeah it was really good as the marinade! I was impressed. I would absolutely do it again.

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

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. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
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, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

I don’t care for mate, green, 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
