drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA
1672 tasting notes

And here goes the 5th tea!

I steeped this for the full 7 mintues because it’s almost midnight and I’m hoping to do more cleaning etc but I’m just really sick of scrubbing the walls and what if the landlord doesn’t really care that the place is this clean and I’m wasting my time? But I need this tea to get me off of this chair and doing… something.

I love the smell of it!

Ok, so it does sorta remind me of Glitter and Gold, BUT, right at the end of the sip there’s the wonderful gingerbread burnt sugar note that just lingers on and on. It’s delicious. Do not be afraid to steep it for 7 minutes!

If I were rating any of these new teas, I’d probably stick this in the high 80’s based on how happy I am with it right now. It’d be wonderful as a latte too!

And, after drinking all 5 new seasonal teas I have to say that getting 30g minimum of each was the right choice. I enjoyed all of them but I think Sugar and Spice, Pumpkin Chai and the Cocoberry were the ones I’d want to re-stock, while I will have to think more about the Pistachio Cream and Mom’s Apple Pie. No regrets on a day dedicated to DAVIDsTEA

I sometimes get frustrated when doing move-out cleaning for the same reason. I’m always super thorough but wonder if it would be all for nothing. That said, I hope you’re not staying up too too late fussing, because chances are the landlord won’t be as meticulous as you.

Yeah, no worries. I’ll probably head to bed in the next half an hour or so. Mostly I’m just dismantling furniture at the moment. The bf is worried we won’t have enough space and he says to just dump it and we’ll re-buy it in TO, but… but… if it’ll fit why not try? :P

Tomorrow I will worry more about washing the floors/walls or whatever and drink tons of mate!

I always go on a cleaning frenzy when I move too. For some reason I have this fear that the next person living there will think I was a slob! I dunno why that should bother me though. I probably will never meet them!

I was going to say, not sure if you guys have a Costco membership but if you don’t and want stuff there we have one.

+1 to Costco memberships!
Also, this tea sounds right up my alley. I was a little disappointed with the way the rest of them sounded (especially because I wish there were more blacks), but this tea has me excited. Plus I tend to like all my tea fairly strong, so I’m totally down with steeping it for like a year.

Cavocorax

Thanks! I’ll keep that on mind!

Lol.. I was the opposite. Loved pistachio cream, bought 50 grams already. Also really liked Moms apple pie… The rest where just okay for me.

Bio

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)
