drank Pistachio Cream by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

Not gonna lie, I was obsessed with this tea for awhile during Fall 2013 it got me though all my studies for Biology! Tastes like Pistachio Ice Cream! Though for some reason, and maybe its just me, but even though its an herbal, I still have to be really delicate with this tea. Meaning, don’t use too hot water, don’t over steep, but steep enough or it will not have a flavor! I also suggest to use a bit of german rock sugar or sweetener.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 3 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

I had this tea again a 27 oz teapot with my family for dinner. Its a winner when my mom likes the tea because she tends to like tea with astringency. This tea is very refreshing, and comforting. The tea is refreshing even though its hot tea! I am happy with this tea and glad I purchased a subscription with 52teas.

Hello!!!!! Happy Chinese Vietnamese New Year! I’m currently in Los Angeles. All I can say is wow! Steepster got a brand new look! It looks great!! Im actually relaxing on vacation. Seahawks won the Super Bowl! I mean I know Peyton deserves a ring but still I was rooting for Seahawks, though the Saints will forever be my team! lol. My family and I were mostly in Little Saigon and I was drinking more Chrysanthemum tea more than ever. I found this tin in my bag and I was in a happy joy mood! I ordered a hot water from service and over steeped it..though its not bitter haha.

Preparation
1 tsp 15 OZ / 443 ML

I cold brewed this last night, knowing that I would drink this to down my medicine. For my age, I still can’t swallow big, pills. Lol. I’m happy I cold brewed this, its not bitter, and still tastes like blueberries! Though I would add sweetener, (it’s the southern in me) but since I’m sick, it doesn’t matter at the moment. It’s 5:43 just an hour and 15 minutes. Hmm maybe I should organize my iTunes library…

Currently listening to: Grouplove, Cage the Elephant, Bastille, and The Neighborhood.

Keychange, I know this was on your post but just in case, I steeped this one scoop and about 16 oz of water? I’m still new to cold brewing so I kept it basic..lol any tips?

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

Today is going to be a long day..I can officially say that I’m sick. I’ve had people in my office walk by me and say “I can feel the heat from you.” I’m leaving tomorrow to LA for the weekend, to celebrate Chinese Vietnamese New Year, so I have to stay till 7pm to get all my work done. All day I’ve been drinking Vitamin C packets, eating oranges, and sneezing my heart out. Wahhh..(remind me when I feel better to clean my office) Bad timing man, maybe it’s a foreshadow of how my year will be for the year of the horse. (If you believe in so.) goodness, I still haven’t packed.

I made this tea in my timolino, maybe it’s because I’m sick but I can’t taste anything. Lol. Just the base and the cooling mint after. It will do though. Usually I make my teas in a steeper and then place it on top of my timolino. But I suppose my brother did the dishes and when he dumped the leaves he also dumped the filter. So I just put the infuser basket to catch the leaves but then leaves would get stuck in the steeper. When I come back, I am for sure purchasing stuff from Davids tea.

Davids tea also launched a new double wall glass traveling mug. I will honestly say that I would buy it just because I like to show off my teas and that glass is just classy looking to me. Lol. It’s different from the bamboo lid that they used to have, it now has a plastic lid? Also a longer infuser basket.
Yvonne

Aww, feel better soon. ♥ Seems like everybody’s sick now! I hope I don’t catch it next :(

Abby Noelle

Thanks! I said the same thing, but I still caught the bug:(

keychange

whoa, can you link to the new mug? I really, really don’t need another oen…but….I need to know what I’m missing out on. Research. And I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Abby Noelle

Lol, I’m still jealous that you own the mason jar with the infuser! Thank you, I hope I can enjoy it as well.

caile

Hope you feel better soon!

keychange

I want it I want it I want it! I wonder if it’s leak-proof, though. and is the basket nice and deep? aaaalskjflaskdfjsldkfjsldkfjsldkfjs!!!!!!!!

Abby Noelle

I know!!!!! Lol idk if it’s leaked proof, but it’s a12 oz so I assume it’s the same size basket for the 12 oz timolino. I also saw the libre tumbler too, and good reviews on it. www.libretea.com

Abby Noelle

Thank you Caile!

keychange

Hmmm, I hope the basket is deeper for this one, because I honestly didn’t find the basket for the (12 oz) timolino to be very deep at all. rest assured I will go to david’s tea at once, investigate, and report back!

Abby Noelle

Mm ahh the joy of having a davidstea near you. Lol. Hmm and report if you get the chance to sample Cherry Blossom;)

Crystal O.

Have fun, and feel better.

I feel somewhat special, I’m the second one to post something for this tea! Im super excited that I finally got some new teas to try. I felt deprived on all the teas that I have. I opened this package and oh my it smells freaking amazing, Hello Child Hood! The package filled my nose that resembles fresh cut Cantaloupe! The white tea is definitely good quality as well. The taste of the cantaloupe and white tea is beautiful, it is almost as it gives the texture of a cantaloupe!

I used one scoop (I use David’s tea Perfect Spoon) in a 14 oz mug and I also used a bit of German rock sugar, then steeped about 3 minutes to maybe 4 minutes.

Hi! Oh my goodness I haven’t been on steepster in awhile! I’m at my office and I whipped some of this matcha, this might be weird but I actually mixed everything up in a protein bottle and shaker! Not too bad and this matcha definitely gave me the energy I need. I noticed the past couple nights, I’ve been having problems of sleeping, like I’m not comfortable in my bed.

Anyways, I received my 52teas order so I should be logging soon. I also have a lot of teas logs to post. Also, anyone tried davids mint to be yet? Cherry blossom is also coming back for spring too. Oh and there is a glass Nordic mug too!! Ugh, too many things to buy too little money to spend lol.

Dexter

LOL yep, welcome to the wonderful world of Steepster – so many teas so little time/money. :))
Hope you can solve you sleep issues.

Abby Noelle

Lol thank you! It’s even more crazy now that everybody received their River tea order! Haha

This is what you get when your phone is dead, and your not able to check reviews for tea. Lol. I picked up this tea because it was clearance at target and I’ve never had Harney and Son’s tea before. Mm, powdered cinnamon all I taste. Eck..I can’t taste tea either…
I’m still drinking it though since I’m lazy to dump it.

Yvonne

Aww, this sounds so good though! :(

I finally got my Red Leaf Order!! Yay yay!!!!!!!

This was a sample and honestly, you guys can totally bash me on this but I’ve never had eggnog before! I definitely know what it consists of but never tried it or had anything remotely near eggnog. When I first opened the package, it was beautiful! Smells like creamy vanilla and maybe a hint of nutmeg? Anyways, in the package it came with a pamphlet and I literally read everything. It’s really helpful and honestly good internal marketing. With this matcha I decided to make a cold latte. I took a teaspoon of matcha, whisk it with a bit of milk, then it added about a cup of milk and froth it all up. Let me tell you, this matcha is crazy good. Though I tend to like my matcha a little sweeter so I added a bit of vanilla syrup. But all is well I really like this, and I’m glad that my matcha experience went amazing. I do have to say though, I won’t order this particular flavor again, but I can’t wait to try the others!!

Crystal O.

I never had eggnog either.

MagicDon

Well when you guys do try eggnog make sure to add black rum and nutmeg lol

Bio

Tea-sters !

I currently live in Las Vegas, but born and raised from New Orleans! I have been working at Lush Cosmetics for 3-4 years as a Trainer. My major is Biology and Business hoping to get into Medical School. I do enjoy eating and reviewing restaurants throughout Vegas, going to concerts, and having fun!

I am beginning a new love and hobby for tea, but I guess i haven’t expanded to new teas since my cupboard is mostly Davids Tea and Teavana. I feel as though I don’t have any friends in Vegas that are quite as addicted to tea as I am and I probably don’t know what I’m doing; so any suggestions I would appreciate it!

Feel free to message me!
