So, am I the only DAVIDsTEA fangirl who rushed off to DT today to look at the new stuff? I even popped online last night to see the new stuff in advance!

I ended up trading a brand new perfect mug in for the Heat Sensitive Nordic Mug. (http://www.davidstea.com/leaf-outline-heat-sensitive-nordic-mug?&TF=D36B1B50DFA0&DEID=) I love the shape and feel of the Nordic Mugs more, and… heat sensitive? OH YES. It still doesn’t replace my trees PM from last fall, but this will do. I wanted to get the animal print one, but they didn’t have it in store yet (http://www.davidstea.com/multicolor-animals-mug?&TF=D36B1B50DFA0&DEID=). For $20, maybe I’ll grab one later on – maybe as a reward for finding a job in ON once I get over there. :D

Anyway, on to the tea? This one reminds me of a fruity coffeeish drink. It’s roasty and warm, but the cherries sweeten it up, and there’s a lingering mate taste. I think this would be a great cup for mornings when I need a kick, but don’t actually want coffee. The nice thing about this is I can drink it plain; coffee I always have to add milk and sugar in order to gulp it down. Tea wins!

Well, I guess this tea has sugar cane it in, so it’s cheating a bit, but it’s still probably better than just dumping in a tbsp of sugar, right?

I’ll hold off on rating it until I try it again as right now I’m just squeeing about everything DT. I should know better, but it’s fun being excited. ;P

ETA: This DID re-steep well!

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
