drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas

A very lovely chai. It really has a kick to it, which is what I love in chai teas. I want them to have a kick.

I’m getting the cinnamon and ginger for sure. I don’t really know what Cardamon tastes like… but either way, this tea is very delicious.

Anyways, I’m going to use the last bit of my sample to make a latte with. I know this would be absolutely dynamite in latte form.

EDIT: I just reread my tasting note on this one from a year ago. I am amazed at how much my feelings towards this one have changed. I really am enjoying it a lot more this time around it seems. I do agree with my note from last year that Saigon chai is better, but this one is also nice.

drank Cranberry by Adagio Teas

I’m not too sure how I feel about this one. It’s got a slight bit of… bitterness? maybe not… yeah maybe… I don’t know.

I am getting a bit of cranberry though. I am starting to realize that I do like cranberries, but I’m not sure if I like cranberries in tea. Either way, it’s an ok tea, but I wouldn’t refill it.

Not sure what I just did but I lost my tasting note… let’s try this again.

My aunt gave me the last two tsps of this one that I steeped up into about 16oz of water.

I get the nice roasted taste to it and I definitely get a great chai flavour to it too but I don’t really notice the apricot or even just a fruitiness to it. But I do like this tea. I probably wouldn’t get it again, but I did enjoy this cup a lot.

drank Egg Noggin' by Steeped Tea
480 tasting notes

Just a quick tasting note about this one as it’s a sipdown. This one as good as it is, doesn’t seem to hold up well over time. This one is about 1.5 years old as I couldn’t drink it when I was pregnant. Anyways, I love this tea, but it didn’t stand up that well. The eggnog flavour really disappeared from it. So, the little I had left went out.
I will absolutely buy this one again this winter though and enjoy it a lot. I’m sure I’ll drink it fast too as it’s so good.

Yeah, I could imagine the milk ingredients spoiling as well :(

TheKesser

Yeah I thought about that afterwards too.

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
480 tasting notes

Apparently I have never reviewed this tea before…?

Anyways, I love this one. It’s very well balanced between lemon, coconut and ginger. I absolutely love it. I love the white tea base as it keeps this tea light and refreshing. This wouldn’t have worked if it was black tea.
I’ve been told this would be a good one to steep rice in for stirfrys, which sounds so good.

I’m going to miss this one so much once it’s gone for good. I might actually buy a bit more of it before it’s gone forever. Why, Davidstea, why? Why are you discontinuing so many amazing teas?? OR you only have them seasonally. :(

drank Elderflower Spritz by DAVIDsTEA
480 tasting notes

I had this one a few weeks back with my mom and never logged it so this review may not be the greatest.

Anyways, my mom came over to see my little guy Isaac and she enjoys trying my teas and I figured she’d like this one as it’s a white tea and it’s got flowers in it and she likes floral teas… or at least seems to.
So, we made up two cups and took a few sips… My mom loved it, but me… not so much… I felt like I was drinking a cup of flowers. Forals are not my thing and I know that, but I had to try this one, especially since it came in my spring collection box.

Anyways, I ended up giving this one to my mom. I think she’s enjoying it… I think. Hopefully.

Yeah, I thought I’d like elderflower tea too, but it tastes odd if it’s too strong. What about sweetening this and adding it to some club soda? I’ve had elderflower soda and that’s quite nice if you have sugar to balance the flowers.

To me, this one tasted a little artificial. Was okay iced, but I just used up the sample I was given and that was it.

I had this one earlier this week.

I think though that I overdid it on the coconut that day as I ended up with the worst upset stomach after having this tea. I don’t know what it was exactly and maybe it wasn’t the coconut, but I had a lot of it and that’s why I’m wondering… anyways, will try again and see how it goes. Hoping it’s better the second time.

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA
480 tasting notes

I remember this one very well from… 2 year ago…? How has it been that long already?

Anyways, I got two samples of this from packages I got (one of which I didn’t tell my hunny about… shhhhhhh!) And I’m using both for this cup of tea. I know it’s more tea than needed, but I don’t care. haha

There is a lot of lovely fruity taste to it, but somehow I’m getting some floral and I don’t know how. There is nothing in this that says floral, so I don’t know if maybe I didn’t clean my basket very well from the last tea? Maybe? Or maybe it was just the fact that I just over did it with the amount of tea?

Either way, I still like it and will bump up my rating slightly. But again, I’m not going to stock up on this one at all. Even though it would probably make a great iced tea, I know I won’t grab for it.

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA
480 tasting notes

My goodness! The name of this one doesn’t lie. It’s definitely sweet. I took two sips and decided I would let it cool down and eventually put it in the fridge to chill for tomorrow, ‘cause it’s just too much for me! I know it’ll be a great iced tea though.

I got apple, vanilla, creaminess and sweetness in the tea. Hopefully it’ll be good once chilled.

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. 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 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
