I have not drank much tea the last week or so… I’m cutting down on my caffeine… And it’s been hard… but today I needed something. I am just so tired and I feel so drained. So, half a cup of this one for me!
It’s not that great… I wish I had had a good tea today to make it more worth while, but I’m getting a tiny bit of energy so, whatever. Anyway, this is my in a pinch tea. And it’s fine, but not a favourite.
So I went into this fully knowing it was going to be some kind of syrup slushie. But all I can say is: Yuckie.
Definitely way artificial. And it doesn’t taste much like green tea to me at all. It is super duper sweet and actually quite bitter. I will choke it down but definitely not purchase again.
I think I’m going to stick to the “syrup masquerading as tea” drinks that I already know I like.
We’re sitting in evolution now and Mike picked me up an Apple Cinnamon tea from Tim’s. You know, to survive the class still sane. I love evolution, don’t get me wrong, but this prof is a bit dry. Even with a British accent.
Sometimes I don’t feel like the adult I am when I’m sitting here in class typing up tea notes while Mike watches over my shoulder and we attempt to stifle laughter before the prof notices.
This is a decent tea. It was one of the teas I used to drink when Tim’s was my favourite. The apple here is really nice, and of course apple and cinnamon go great together. This is actually a decent herbal option.
This tea impresses me. The first time I had this, which was about a week and a half ago (I normally don’t go for the herbal teas) I was surprised by how sweet and citrusy the flavour was.
It lives up to the name honey lemon quite well, and goes down very easily. This hasn’t been a go-to tea for me before, but I think it might be when I want a caffeine-fee cuppa at Tims in the future.
I normally am a stickler about reviewing teas straight on here, but I know this one is amazing with milk and sugar, and why mess with a good thing? It’s pleasantly spiced, though I could do with it being a little stronger (I suppose there’s a reason they allot two teabags to their larger cups) but it’s still quite cosy and good. I like letting this one steep for a long time, and pair it with plenty of milk and sugar. This is my go-to at Tims, and probably will continue to be such for a while. Mmmm…..
I have a feeling my mom could say more about this tea than I can — mint of pretty much any form is her favourite when it comes to tea. That said, it seems pleasantly minty. Nothing special, but then it doesn’t profess to be anything more than mint.
Cooling, calming, and simple. Probably would pair wonderfully with something chocolatey. Not bad at all.
Certainly not a bad bag. It has a bit of an orangey note to it, which I find amusing saying how often I have to try and convince people that no, there is no orange in orange pekoe. (This is English Breakfast, I realize, but nonetheless, both are straight teas. My point stands.)
Now I just wish that I had a nice pastry (or a few timbits) to go with it, but sadly, as I am having this at home, no such luck. Maybe next time….
I don’t know whether I would go as far as saying this tea is GOOD, but it’s the best one that Timmy Ho’s offers. It has a wacky colour; not blueberry-steeped colour at all. There’s definitely some hibiscus in there, because it’s a blue-ish, purple-ish, red. Blueberry tea should be a greenish-black. That’s what happens when you add blueberries to hot water without vinegar (vinegar changes the colour from that wacky green-black to blueish like liquid pen ink). I doubt any of the contents of the tea bag contain blueberry anything other than artificial blueberry flavour.
All that being said, Timmy Ho’s warm beverages are TERRIBLE. It’s either coffee that tastes like cigarettes, new dark roast coffee that tastes like burnt cigarettes, “lattes” and “cappuccinos” that are at least 90% sugar, and tea that tastes like….cardboard? I can’t quite place it. I feel like a Canadian traitor saying all of that, but it’s true. If you want good coffee in Canada you have to get it from an independent coffee shop or make it yourself. Period. Same goes with tea. Independent tea shop (or David’s/Teavana) or make it yourself.
Verdict: I’m not about to ditch my Blueberry Jam tea from David’s any time soon for this stuff.
Had this at Tim Hortons today and actually went and took home a box! For $3.50, it seemed like a bit of a steal. I can’t believe how much I like this tea – it tastes like a spicy apple cider. Perfect for when I’m in an appley sort of mood.
I just…I don’t even know what to say, actually. I’m surprised! Thought this would be risky.
It honestly pulls at my Canadian heart strings that this is even on Steepster. Ohhhh Canada! I usually order this if I’m out and about and with my boyfriend. That’s the reason I am drinking it right now (thanks honey!)
It’s your typical orange pekoe, nothing special, just creamy and gives you a jolt. It has a bit of an after taste and leaves your tongue very dry. Doesn’t seem to matter what I eat with it.
