drank Black Cherry by DAVIDsTEA

I am VERY surprised by this one. Years ago, Davidstea did a Cherry Cola tea that I very much didn’t like. Today, I’m trying this one hoping it tastes nothing like that one. And I’m very glad to say that it doesn’t taste like it at all.

This cherry tea is so good! I am getting a very nice cherry flavour that isn’t tart but rather nice and sweet. I know there’s a bit of licorice root in this one which always makes me nervous, but this time it’s hard to even really notice any real licorice flavour. It’s just lovely cherry goodness.

I can’t wait to try this one as a teapop!!

drank Banana Split by DAVIDsTEA

I never go for the banana teas, but this one is SO good! It’s a light banana flavour with a real nice creaminess to it, which is probably from the meringue. I really enjoyed this one! I’ll have to get more soon.


Try it as latte (if that’s your thing)! Soooo good

Again tried this one today. It’s not one of my favourites. I find it to be a bit too strong in the grassy tones, but it would be great for someone that enjoys that kind of thing. It’s very complex but still enjoyable if you like that kind of thing. Maybe some day…

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA

In the past, I have hated this tea. It wasn’t my thing and I only kept it around for my husband. But today I revisited it and I’m very glad I did. It is sweet and fruity but also nutty and it’s not too overpowering.
I love the base of this one as it’s sweet and only very lightly grassy. So delicious. I’m going very happy with this one.

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

Yum yum yum!! I had this one as a latte last night. SO SO Good! I have to get more! But I’m going to wait to get it until… I start my job working there!!!!
I’m on mat leave and I decided to apply for the job anyways. Well I got a call for a group interview and when I heard that 170 people applied, then I really didn’t think I would get it. Well, I got the email and they want to hire me! I’m going to ask them for only a few shifts a week so hopefully it doesn’t interfere with my mat leave money too much. Not too sure how that works… Gotta call someone tomorrow.

Anyways, I am super excited to start there and I know I’m going to love the discount! I can’t wait for the store to open :)


Oooh – that’s exciting! I’ve been looking to get a job there too, but it’s so competitive. :O hope you enjoy it!


Thanks! I hope so too! I’m so surprised I even got it. I’m really not the type that usually stands out and somehow I did this time in a good way :)


Congrats! :)

drank White Pear by Adagio Teas

I’m not too sure how I feel about this one. It’s pretty simple. I don’t usually care for pears because of the texture of them, so I don’t really know if this tea tastes like pears or not… It’s nice, but I don’t think I’d get this one again. It’s got a bit of sweetness to it, but yeah… I dunno.

Another one that I only had 7-8 perfect spoons left so I’m making popsicles. Hopefully they taste okay ’cause they smelt flowery.

drank Cosmopolitan by Steeped Tea

I am using up what I have left of this one to make a pitcher of iced tea. Apparently I had 7-8 perfect spoons left, so I felt this would be an easy way to use it up.

Will update once it’s cool enough to drink.

drank Lung Ching by DAVIDsTEA

Only got a small amount of this one to try as I really wasn’t sure with the description if I would like it or not. But I am glad that Davidstea did get some straight teas in. That was a nice surprise and hopefully it means more are coming? Probably not, but I can hope.

This one I steeped up this morning but I didn’t use super hot water. I had the water sitting for a bit before I finally used it. Anyways, this one is definitely buttery and not really all that grassy like I thought it would be. I could taste the green tea, but it was so mild. It really was the butter that I tasted more than anything, which was good and weird. I thought I was just tasting the butter from my toast, but nope, that was the tea.

I only have done one steeping so far, but I think I’ll try another one before the day is out. Either way, it’s pretty darn good and I loved how light it tasted too. Hoping the second steep is just as good.


Adored this tea. I hope they get more straight greens :)

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).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

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
