Happy 400th tasting note to me!

I got a small Davidstea order in the mail today. Only three teas, ones on the wishlist. I decided this would be the one to jump into as it smelt curiously like Coco Lemon Thai.

I really love this one. I love the lemon and coconut and how it’s working together. There is definitely a lovely fruitiness to it also. I am quite happy with it. I will definitely enjoy this one. And I’ll drink it up fast hopefully. Unlike the Coco Lemon Thai that my dad bought me. I loved it, but then forgot about it… and I think it’s gone punky… so sad… I’ll try it again before I chuck it… but so sad…

Anyways, this one won’t have that happen. I’ll be drinking this one fast :)

I had this one last week with my mom and totally didn’t think to log it.

I was… disappointed with this one. I found it to be so lightly flavoured that it felt like I was just drinking water. I couldn’t get much of any flavour to it… I will be trying it again before I give up on it, but even my mom agreed. I guess we’ll see. I’m going to add more leaves and see what happens.

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

I can’t believe I still have this one. So I made it into a latte. haha Still on my latte kick. I think this will be one of many today.

Anyways, This tea still tastes so good. I’m surprised it still have good flavour as it’s not the newest tea ever… But either way, I’m enjoying this one as a latte. It’s a little strange having a white tea as a latte, but it works. Maybe it’s ‘cause I make them nice and strong that it works, but either way, I’m glad it does.

I need to finish this one. It’s time to say goodbye.

Wow, I totally forgot about this one haha. Good that it hasn’t gone off after all this time.

TheKesser

Yeah I’m really surprised it hasn’t. I thought the walnuts would have been so off so I wasn’t expecting much at first. I’m glad it turned out alright.

I remember getting this one made at DAVIDS maybe 2 summers ago but they put too hot of water on the leaves and it burned it- thus ruining the experience for me :(

I got more of this one before my collection dwindled like I thought I was going to. I got a fresh small bag of it… was it this year or last year? I don’t remember. Doesn’t matter.

Today I made it into a latte. Absolutely amazing. I seriously inhaled it. I was very impressed. I love making lattes at home. I have so much more variety than shops do and it’s SO much cheaper!

Made this into a latte today. I probably made it stronger than needed, but I love strong flavoured lattes. This one was so great. It had the great cookie taste I mentioned in the last tasting note, and it’s got the creaminess of the cream.
This tea is such a surprise. I love it. Now that I’m making lattes at home, I don’t think this one will last long. haha Delish!

Bought this on a whim last week.

I wasn’t even sure about the smell honestly, but how could I pass up a tea called Cookies and Cream?!

I added some milk and sugar (not much), and it made this tea such a great sweet dessert tea. I definitely got the sweetness and chocolately taste from it. But there was also a creaminess to it. I was impressed by the combo and how well the two worked together and the fact that you get both the cookie taste and the cream. Usually you don’t get both when a company says you should, but this time you definitely can. Seriously surprised and impressed.

I’m going to enjoy this one.

As a side note, I’m like dying to buy more tea, which technically I have in the last week, but I want to buy more and I’m trying with everything in me to not. I have a Steeped Tea party tonight so we’ll see how well that lasts… I HAVE to drink down some of my collection!

Fjellrev

Haha I’m sort of in that mode right now too, and totally don’t blame you for wanting to try this!

TheKesser

Ya it’s so good! And I’m proud to say I didn’t buy any tea at the tea party!

Fjellrev

See? You’re doing well!

Frost (Mags)

Oh man, that tea sounds delightful.

TheKesser

It’s so good! I made it into a latte today… Delish!!

drank Candy Apple by Adagio Teas

I have decided that I dislike this tea. Not because of anything to do with the tea itself, but I realize that I don’t like apple teas that have a black base. They are okay, but I definitely prefer when they have a different base to them. Not sure if I’m going to finish this one or just toss what’s left… maybe I"ll try mixing it with something instead.

drank Berry Refreshing by DAVIDsTEA

I have been really surprised by this one. It’s so good and I absolutely love it. I didn’t think I would with it being a hibiscus tea, but for some reason it doesn’t bother me here at all. Found the berry flavour to be quite good and the hibiscus doesn’t overpower like it tends to do. Such a great tea. I’m very impressed by this one. A great blend of flavours with nothing outshining the rest. All the flavours work in harmony. I also love that it turns a lovely shade of purple. SO pretty!!
Can’t decide if I want to stock up or not.

Making this as an iced tea to finish it up. It made a really good one last time I did this, so hopefully it’ll be good again. Almost three PS for 16oz of water. Probably too much, but I’m not concerned. Steeped up in hot water until it cooled and I’m leaving the leaves in until I’m ready to drink.

Will update tomorrow once I try it.

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA
420 tasting notes

Pumpkin Patch… Normally Pumpkin chai is the tea I go to for pumpkin flavour, but this one is pretty good. I like the pumpkin and the spices with it.

I do wish I had steeped it for less time, but such is life. I still enjoy the flavours. It’s nice to have a pumpkin tea that isn’t chai. I can see this making a lovely latte. I’ll probably try that next.

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
