Relief! Just a bit below average on that killer midterm from before reading week. I was stressing about it all class. Now I can relax and drink my tea. I’m almost out of this! Will have to restock soon. See previous notes on this tea :)

I wanted a more exciting tea for my 200th note but ah well this is what I’m having. I just wrote my midterm and it was miserable and tough and i am praying the prof marks easy. Or else I probably failed it. :( but i have my standard breakfasty tea at least. The bottom of the bag is near. I will have to maybe pick up a tin of this. See previous notes on this yummy tea.

Good luck on your exam!

Claire

I bet you did fine! I always think I did worse on tests than I actually do.

MissLena

I hope so, I sometimes think I did worse than I do as well but it was mostly too short of time for how long the exam was lol, at least it’s over now :) and thanks for the luck Ellyn!

Backlog – this is totally becoming my new morning tea. It’s very nice and fruity, and it’s starting to taste yummier in my travel mug. Maybe because it’s a new travel mug hehe. Anyways, this kept me going through the day. See previous notes :)

First tea in my new timolino! It still doesn’t taste as good as when in a cup, but it’s maybe not as bland, and there’s no weird smell of previous tea emanating from the rubber on the lid. And the blue color of my new tim makes me happy :). Anyways, back to tea, i love this in the morning, and this probably will be a repurchase, if my bf ever lets me go into davidstea again :p he said if I drink all my teas, i can get more :( but i do have a red leaf gift cert that I will have to use up….. Anyways, sorry for the small tangent, see previous notes on this tea :)

:( this tea doesn’t bode too well in my travel mug today. It tastes a lot more like green rooibos with just a bit of the yummy peach flavor. Maybe because I steeped for 7 minutes instead of 5 too. Ah well, it tastes outstanding when it’s brewed in a cup! Might try 5 mins another morning and see what happens. See previous notes on this fruity tea!

ETA- this actually is tasting better as it cools, i’m getting more of that peach oatmeal flavor I want for breakfast. This isn’t too bad, and i might make it again in my mug because it’s just so appropriate for mornings! :)

Peaches and cream oatmeal, hello! This tea is soo similar to that, I needed to have it this morning. This is such a tasty green rooibos blend, I will probably have to get more than 25 g of this at some point. Light and fruity! I hope this does well in a travel mug, I want to take it to classes in the morning :D. I will also have to brew this with milk and sugar now that I have a bit of it, just to see what it does to the flavor. Man, am I on a rooibos kick or what lately! I bought three new ones yesterday…haha, anyways, see previous notes on this excellent morning tea :)

Ah I like this! This is one of my first green rooibos blends, and I am very impressed with it. The smell is dead on peaches and cream porridge to me, which I quite like for breakfast!! The scent just makes my mouth water.

The taste is definitely quite a lot of peaches, with a papaya-mango flavoring added in to make it a touch exotic. The rooibos is an excellent base here, not overpowering, just mellow and delicious. I am anxious to add milk and sugar to see if it actually tastes like peaches and cream even more than it does now! The taste is a bit muted compared to the smell, but it is still very good.

Overall, this is going to be a repurchase. I also can’t wait to try this iced, it will be very refreshing in the summer. This maybe have taken the second place spot for favorite rooibos over Jessie’s tea, definitely the best green rooibos I have tried! Love that it’s caffeine free too, I can see this as a morning staple for class.

hey i just steeped this too!
(actually it’s been in my timolino steeping for like an hour and seeing your post just reminded me it was there)
another green rooibos i like is the three lemon green. if you like lemon of course.

it IS TOTALLY peaches and cream oatmeal!!! you’re so right.

MissLena

I should try the lemon one I quite like lemon :) i can’t believe how similar it is to the oatmeal hey?? Mm makes me want to go buy some now!

I sampled a cup of this this morning (afternoon technically lol) and it didn’t do a whole lot for me. I get an almost dark chocolate smell and taste in the cup, but the black tea definitely added a bitter note that I didn’t really enjoy. At the start of the sip, the pomegranate is nice and fruity, but after swallowing the bitterness creeps up. I think there’s a bit too much going on in this tea as well, if it was just a green/green rooibos blend I think I would enjoy it a bit more.

I added a spoonful of sugar halfway through and this did cut the bitterness quite a lot, and it tasted more dark cocoa to me, but still not quite good enough for me to purchase. I steeped for 3 and a half mins at 175 degrees, maybe it was too long of a steep time? Just not quite my cup of tea :(

had this today at a DavidsTEA location, using their fabulous steeper. and i really wanted to love it, but i didn’t. the aroma and flavour was more rooibos than caramel when i drank it. it wasn’t as smooth as i thought it would be. a bit disappointing. perhaps the water they put in was too hot? if i try again, id prefer to do it on my own. they offered it in latte form so i would probably try it again as a latte over the counter.

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
511 tasting notes

I am one of the many people that are fighting a cold right now… boo… I hate being sick. HATE it. But really, who likes being sick?
I got this one when I went to Banff. I got it mostly ‘cause it smells delicious! I wasn’t sick, but rather wanted to have it on hand in case someone got sick or I was just feeling adventurous to try it without a cold.
I think I made this one a bit stronger than I meant to. It apparently made the whole main floor of the house smell like vicks vapour rub. I was able to smell it a bit, but after a while I couldn’t. I don’t think it really did anything for me other than it helped sooth my throat a bit. I would definitely get again though. Others found that it helped them a lot, so I would go with that based solely on their experiences

I decided to give this tea a try today, I bought it back when it I bought my strawberry rhubarb parfait tea. Since I loved the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait and I love white teas I thought I would love this tea as well. I was right, this tea is delicious sweet and tart in the best ways. Dry this tea has a lovely aroma that welcomes you to try it and steeped the aroma changes to a subtle cinnamon and fruity scent that warm and inviting. The tea’s colour is a beautiful clear light brown and the taste as I mentioned before was a lovely mix of sweet and tart with cinnamon underneath. Definitely a tea I’ll order more of.

I picked up some Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait today and it wasn’t for me :( If you want to follow me I can send you the rest. Haha I need room in my cupboard for something I enjoy!

So, Goji pop. Maybe I underleafed? Because ehhh, really light. The dry mix smells amazing, though, so maybe my expectations were too high. :P

That was last night.

Cavocorax

Yeah Idk about this one. The samples in-store never were that great, but I have some in my mini-tin so maybe it’ll be better when I make it.

Ozli

With double servings in a small cup maybe it’d be good? IDK, dude. It’d probably be ridic pricey to drink it that way, so better to not know, maybe? haha. (Though I’m going to do that with my last cup anyway – at some point.)

Had a very Merry Christmas, mostly since I was showered in tea gifts!
(imagine swimming in tea like Scrooge McDuck).
I wasn’t sure about this tea due to so-so ratings, but I really enjoyed it! I feel it could benefit from being more cranberry-y, so might dice up berries before next attempt, maybe that will help them steep better? I always wonder about dried fruit.. I can’t imagine a raisin imparting that much flavour, but I am no tea scientist. Anyhow, was a great light before-bed tea and if there is still some at the store, will treat myself to more!
Happy New Year all :)

I WANT to love this one. I really do. But it’s just not doing it for me. The Banana Nut Bread was to die for and this is just lackluster. It smells great but doesn’t have a ton of flavor. The first cup I brewed for 6 minutes and was bitter. The second cup I brewed for 5 minutes and didn’t have much flavor. I tried it sweetened and with as well as without milk. Sadly, won’t be repurchasing.

drank Main Squeeze by DAVIDsTEA

Another one that I wanted to love and just don’t think I’ll be repurchasing. It smells like fresh squeezed orange juice. The taste reminds me of the orange Triaminic that I used to have as a child. It has a very medicinal quality. I will try the rest of the sample iced to see if it’s any better.

drank Superberry (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
60 tasting notes

Okay, I’m writing this note as I watch Monty Python, so this should be interesting.
So I had had this before and I liked it. (John Cleese is robbing a lingerie store). It is pretty peppy. I think that the Acai powder on the ingredients makes it sort of bitter, but also more interesting, as well as the juniper berries (talking trees). I enjoy it. It’s odd, but I enjoy it. I’m not going to give it a really amazing score though, because it leaves a weird taste in my mouth. Okay. And now for something completely different…

Now, the second steep was quite good. It was pretty, light, and fruity.

I lovelovelove this one. I only ever had a small sample of it, and only haven’t picked up more because I have soooooo much tea….

MissLena

I love this one too! You should pick up a bit just to have on hand, even if it’s just 25 g :)

I have been having a tea day/evening with my good friend charchar and this was one she brought over that I’ve been meaning to try. It was yummy, reminded me very much of a ginger snap cookie! I definitely will have to pick up some of this for a caffeine free spice chai taste :) I will write a more detailed review once I acquire some of this for myself hehe.

This has a nutty flavour and definite cookie dough aroma. I was a little sceptical about it at first because it was all leaf and little else. But I love it.
