I haven’t had a cuppa in so long, this was a wonderful one to break my tealess streak. Popped into David’s for the new spring line and saw this on the shelf so decided to give it a taste despite the hibiscus. I was well-rewarded!

The green-white blend is a very light and mellow, relaxing base for the sweet fruitiness of the hibiscus, which doesn’t succumb to tartness. There is a kind of peachy flavour to the tea from the hibiscus, and the jasmine sneaks in on an aftertaste, which is the only down note, a bit too perfumed. Still, it’s a beautiful tea, and I only wish it was more affordable!

drank The Glow (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I always forget how much I love this tea until I have it again. It bills itself as a floral tea, which is strange because I don’t get anything floral off of it. It tastes like apple pie, more than any “apple pie tea” I’ve ever tried. It’s just apple and a touch of cinnamon and sugar. It’s just a true cup of sweet before-bed comfort. Mmmmm.

Will have to get a slice of apple pie tomorrow at IKEA.

drank Raspberry by The Tea Haus

The raspberry leaf in this frightened me a little, because raspberry leaf is kinda gross. But the blend is amazing. It’s a beautiful pekoe with a truly delicious raspberry flavour, sweet and fruity and very well-balanced.

Made a nice biiiiig pot of this today to drink while I finished off ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. Got about four cups in before I realised that this fruity, orangey, sweet, touch of Earl green blend was amazing and yet strangely familiar. It’s like a better version of DT’s Countess of Seville.

Also, om nom nom nom.

It is too close to bed for Sparkle, and so I will Fizz! In one of the awesome moustache mugs that Tina gave us for our birthday. (We are as ooooone). This tea is so yummy and fizzy, sweet and tart and just perfect.

Made this to cheer myself up after a terrible cuppa from Tim’s. Mmmm. Once again, delicious. I love you, Tea Haus. I love you so hard that my wife should be a little jealous.

drank Earl Grey by Tim Hortons

Why? Why are you so bad? I want you to be good. No – I don’t care about good. I will settle for decent. Serviceable, even. Right now, you are barely potable. Every time.

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.
