I’m finishing this sample today. It’s a light oolong with a definite pineapple taste. To me it’s more of a Spring/Summer tea than Autumn/Winter tea. I find that as the days and nights get darker, so does my taste change from the lighter teas towards black teas and deeper flavors. This one goes in my “like it but don’t love it” list. I’d pick it up if it were on sale, but it’s not one that I’ll need to keep stocked in my cupboard.

i didn’t love this one.. until i tried it as a teapop… i know teapop’s are so gimmicky, and it pained me that they were trying to talk me into it and i caved.. but i’m glad i did.. it was so good.

I’m trying to finish some of the little packets of tea that I’ve been hanging onto to simplify our move when the renos are finished this September. This tea hasn’t grown on me even though this time I was expecting the floral taste this time. I feel I would have preferred exactly what the name and the ingredients list indicates: berries on a green tea base.

I won’t be repurchasing this one, in fact, I couldn’t even finish my cup this morning; it was upsetting my stomach. Instead I used the remainder as part of this morning’s face washing routine.

Wow, didn’t realized your renos weren’t finished yet… you must be so anxious to get in!
This tea is yucky, never finished my sample. There’s nothing berry about it and the base tastes funny.
Facewash? hmm there’s an idea!

Hi TeaFairy – Yes, hubby and I are both excited to see the final product of the reno/extension. Thankfully the company gave us a scheduled timeline before they started and they’re still right on track :) As for this tea, I must say it made a much nicer facewash than a drink.

David’s tea didn’t have the tea I was hoping for, so I caved and paid the big bucks for some of this one to make a couple rounds of night-time iced tea. I hot brewed it and served it over ice. I like it this way also, but it’s still not worth the price for such a heavy tisane. It’s a shame though…I think it’s one of David’s Teas’ better tasting herbal blends.

My overall opinion of this tisane hasn’t really changed since the first time I tried this. Sour citrus and eucalyptus just isn’t a taste I gravitate towards. I do kind of like the light orange juice aftertaste it leaves in my mouth though, hmmm, neato. I decided to try making a hot brew then tossing some ice in it since the weather has been so warm. I like it better this way…refreshing. Unfortunately it’s still a long way from making my favorites list. Not likely a repurchase unless I forget that I’ve tried it, and I see it at the 2 for $5 impulse buy display at the cash register.

I’m a little disappointed with this one, gotta say. There’s something in it that just doesn’t fit. The dry mix includes little dried purple flowers but the ingredients listing only says: green tea, raspberries, blueberries, blueberry flavoring. If I had to guess I would say this might include lavender? I could be wrong though…hmmm…I kind of hope so, I really don’t like when ingredients lists are inaccurate or incomplete.

It was worth a try but this isn’t a tea I plan to keep stocked in my cupboard.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Finished this sample today, my birthday is this weekend, so I thought it was a suitable choice. It’s quite sweet, but it’s a nice as a tea to drink on occassion. I’ll definitely pick up samples of this one in the future, but it’s a little too sweet for me to want in full size. Happy Friday!

Happy belated birthday!

I made this for the first time this morning, but I wasn’t quite awake when I made it and I assumed that it was a black tea and overheated the water. I don’t believe I’ve ever had ginger and cinnamon paired on a green tea base, it’s certainly unique, but I’ll probably like it even more if I use the correct water temperature next time…stay tuned :P

No surprise, this tisane tastes best to me as a cold tea rather than hot. The cucumber comes through as a cool, fresh smoothness over top of the kiwi. For some reason I keep getting hints of lime, but that’s probably just my taste buds?

I enjoy drinking this one hot, but I visited some friends who had a crushed ice dispenser in their freezer door, so I decided to add some to my travel mug. Wow! So refreshing!

I’m off to check out the progress on the renos. Fingers crossed that the good progress will continue.

All done! I really enjoyed this one, and I will reorder it when I place my next order with Della Terra (whenever that happens). I just received a couple of big tea orders that should hold me over for quite a while…unless I run across yet another deal (or tea) that I can’t pass up. Ugh! I’m a sucker for a good deal. Speaking of which, my hubby and I finally bought our bed frame this past Sunday for about half the original price because it was last years model. Really? Last year’s model? Who knew? It was even cheaper than IKEA (and way better quality). On Saturday we found a two-sided mattress that we really wanted… It was an expensive weekend. :P

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
