drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I can’t seem to pinpoint why I didn’t like this one. It certainly lived up to its name – it tasted like creamy sugary vanilla sprinkle cake, even down to the slight burnt little crusty bits that get stuck in the pan. It wasn’t overly sweet, but every sip left me feeling like I had just snorted straight cake mix. Unpleasant.

This was unfortunately forgettable. I drank it this morning, and I really can’t think of any good way to describe it. Hmm. It was . . . fruity? And creamy?

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

drank Yerba Mate Mango by The Tea Haus

Up and down all night panicking about teachers’ college applications, needed to stay awake somehow. This is such a delicious sweet energy punch, without much of the fuzzy pollen-y flavour I sometimes get from mate.

I need to drink this more. It’s always delicious, always amazing. This amazing dusky full Earl flavour. It’s hands down my favourite Earl, and that’s saying something.

drank White Chocolate Moon by SpecialTeas

This tea is so delicious, just light and full of flavour, but it is so naturally sweet that it was not the best choice for my first-thing-in-the-morning tea. Definitely an after dinner tea.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA

Drank this with Mom – yes! I got her to try looseleaf! And enjoy it! Her favourite flavour of anything is chocolate orange, so I thought this would be a great tea to coax her over to the dark side with. No luck yet, but I will keep trying.

drank Lemon Meringue Rooibos by Tealish

Oversteeped this cup, sadness. Got a little too tart and a little too overwhelmingly rooibosy. Nevertheless, was a nice shot of sweet into my afternoon.

drank Peach Oolong by Art of Tea

Bleh. The oolong tasted old and stale, and I got absolutely no peach flavour from it. Sad and disappointed.

How sad! cries for bad tea

Your experience with this tea sounds a lot like mine. Only mine was long winded and you got straight to the point.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
