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 :)

drank Snickerdoodle by DAVIDsTEA

Really enjoyed this one but at the same time, I’m not sorry to see it go. It was unbelievably sweet and worked best in latte form to me. Anyways, drank what I had left in a latte that I used a bit of my Gingerbread tea to have enough tea to make the latte. Lovely combo and helped cut the sweetness of the snickerdoodle.
Either way… SIPDOWN!

Just a quick note to say, I dumped what I had left of this one as I knew I wouldn’t be drinking it anytime soon. Saigon is so much better and Davidstea better never discontinue it.
That is all.


I hate this one, too :( too much cinnamon. blech

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
514 tasting notes

The apple flavour of this one is starting to fade slightly, but that’s okay. It’s still a lovely tea with a nice green tea base and a sweet apple flavour. This tea is always so good when it’s fresh. I Hope they bring it back soon.

Anyways, my mind isn’t on this tea all that much… I can’t go into details, but by the end of the week my husband and I have to make a pretty big decision and we are struggling to know what to do. I think we are both leaning towards the same decision, which is great that we’re united that way, but it’s both exciting and scarey if it happens. I’m just hoping me make the right decision…

So, on that note, this tea is lovely. It’s a bit stronger than I would normally have liked, but I will still enjoy it and I’m thankful for it this morning.

Updated Feb. 16/16
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
