I’m amazed. It was David’s first birthday at the location near me today so I stopped in to celebrate, re-fill our Jungle JuJu and Honeybee. I decided to grab a cup of this to go, as I am trying a number of mate teas lately and find I am really enjoying them. Caffeine has no noticable effect on me, so they are really just another yummy field of tea for me.

As many know, I don’t really like chocolate in tea but have had such positive experiences today that I figured I’d try for it. And man, am I glad that I did!! This was delicious. At first, it was totally just chocolate and raspberry which isn’t a taste I liked but it totally worked. As it cooled, the chickory, chocolate and mate dominated with the raspberry fading out. I think I am going to go by 100 grams of this tomorrow, as it’s nice to have another delicious substitute for hot chocolate. Honestly, I’m so wowed. Well done David’s! Also, I think I might really like mate…woo!

I love this tea. One of my favourite things is Chocolate and Raspberry. This tea is great and I love the caffine kick I get from it. A great morning tea.

I know what you mean about no/low effect from caffeine, on really bad mornings I need two cups of mate to get me going! My other half hates me for it, he is one of those people who has to stick to the “no caffeine after 4pm” rule. Luckily we have a giant bag of Oh Canada for his night-time tea treat!

Well, this needed refreshing. I have been drinking loose leaf for many years, and have fairly well nailed down my tastes. I love Chinese blacks and some other unflavoured teas. I occasionally drink flavoured teas, or herbals, but the bulk of my tea is unflavoured with no additives. I stock regularly from Teavivre with the occasional Verdant purchase and the odd re-stock at Davids. I love mint, am learning about the wide world of puerh, and prefer ripe to raw, so far. I don’t like green or green oolongs very much, white is okay and roasted oolongs are pretty good. Coconut and chamomile are awful, and I wish they weren’t in so many blends!

At home, I live with my husband and cat in a house built by my grandfather, which we love. We share many interests – books, tea, video games, board games, tv/movies. On top of that, I love crosswords and recently took up knitting again, so I’m having a hard time balancing all my passions at the moment. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who, as is my entire immediate family. I love spreading the Who love!

We also spend a lot of time with family, when we can. I’ve got a gaggle of younger brothers, and we like to spend time with them. The wonders of the internet allow us to spend time together even though some of them live a few hours away.

As for ratings, I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
