drank Electric Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

I don’t think I’ve reviewed this one yet! Okay, let me just say, I’m OBSESSED! Like, seriously. I bought a tin of it to take with me when I went up north last wee and I completely forgot it at home and I was so mad. Then, when I went to see my in-laws, I went and got some more so I didn’t have to go any longer without it. It’s just so amazing. I have to have agave in it to make it that lovely lemonade flavour that is sweet and yummy but oh man. SO good. I’m seriously over the moon for this tea.

Same, this is one of very teas I’ve ever given a 100 rating to. I love it so much, I have a tin at home and at work, haha.

Bought a collector’s tin of this one! I really hope I love it. The first cup was made too weak, so I shall try again!

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA

Only had this one as a sample in store, but I feel like I really need to try some more of it before I can truly make a good review. It’s good, but.. strange? We’ll see how I feel the second time :)

Sound a bit of this one hidden in the cupboard. I knew at one time I had it, but didn’t realize I still had some.
Either way, I’m enjoying it as a latte. I probably shouldn’t have done it this way because A) I’m almost too full to enjoy this one; and B) I don’t like mint teas in latte form for some unknown reason. I really don’t know what that is, but I really don’t like them. They are fine and taste just fine and all that, but as a personal preference, minty lattes are just strange to me.
Anyways, will finish this one soon. Maybe I’ll try it iced? Maybe I should practice my cold latte making. That might make me enjoy it a bit more?

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Welcome back old friend! I still have some of you from last year so I plan on drinking LOTS of you. But today I had you as a latte in store, and I probably should have added a bit more agave ’cause I love my lattes sweet.

drank Nutty by Nature by DAVIDsTEA

Had this one tonight, but I didn’t realize it had apricot in it. haha silly me for not reading the ingredients. Anyways, I did enjoy this one but because I didn’t realize the apricot was in there, I found this tea to be so weird. Now that I know that, looking back I can say it was very good! I’ll try again as I have more and see what I think from there.

Not too bad. Has nice caramel and toffee flavours to it, but it’s not one I’d grab for very often. Will probably try as a latte next.

love these types of teas for lattes!

drank Greens by Wildflowers Tea
507 tasting notes

I am really enjoying this tea. I’m amazed at how much I’m liking this tea. It tastes like a whole bunch of herbs all stuck together and it’s almost… grassy. It’s just so good. I’m just so surprised at how much I like this tea. And I love how the directions say you can add this to cooking and soups and whatnot ’cause I think I would do that! It would be great to add to a soup.

Anyways, lovely tea and will enjoy this a lot. It’d probably be good as an after dinner tea or even before dinner tea. Get the palette ready for dinner.

I love the look of this one. It has lovely dark, flat green tea leaves. It looks lovely.
But upon smelling it… yuck… It smells like lemon cleaner to me. Like Pinesol! Gross.
So onto tasting… I feel like they really tried here, but they really missed the mark. I get some floral from the rosebuds, which is such a weird addition to a citrus tea. And I’m getting the lime but it’s in such an artificial way. It, again, tastes like what I would think Pinesol would taste like.

I’ve had a few lime teas before and they have always managed to make it sweet and juicy lime but this isn’t that way at all. It’s almost dry and fake. I’m so sad. I’m going to throw the rest of this one out. I’m pretty sure I got this one for free so I’m not too concerned that I’m letting it go.

drank Amaretto by Unknown
507 tasting notes

I have an unknown Amaretto tea also. My guess would be that it’s from Metropolitan tea company but I’m not sure exactly. I added some milk and sugar ‘cause on its own it wasn’t quite as nice as I thought it should be. Then it turned into a nice sweet treat. I know this would hold up well as a latte. I might try this one that way soon.

I’m attempting to drink all my teas once through. I have teas that I got and have yet to try. How sad eh? Well that’s about to change. Lots of new tea tastes coming my way!

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
