This is my favourite ‘fast food’ tea. It doesn’t contain any caffeine as it is a herbal tea but somehow this tea is always the best pick-me-up (I don’t drink coffee, so this is always what I get at work when I’m feeling that mid-day slump).

The peppermint flavor is sweet tasting, with a slight hint of creamy vanilla. It is very refreshing and surprisingly delicious for a take-out tea. I personally like to order it with 1 milk and 1 sugar, but it’s perfectly fine by itself as well.

Flavors: Cream, Mint, Peppermint, Vanilla

I went to the drive thru. I asked for plain hot tea. I received Chai. Within a half hour, I wretched in the toilet to the point where I almost blacked out. I decided to rest. Five minutes later, the palms of my hands were on fire. I had itching on my scalp and back of neck. Then it moved to my inner ear. Lastly, my tongue bloated and hit the roof of my mouth. I could not talk. I went to the ER, and they deducted that I am allergic to chai. All of the symptoms followed a reaction that elevated the histamine into hyperdrive. I did not ask for a Chai tea. I just wanted something simple to warm my stomach. If I didn’t react quickly like I did, it was going to affect my breathing. Please watch what the cashier puts in your hands. I still cannot believe that this happened. I am 44 and never have been allergic to anything.

Oh my, this is awful. I had one sip and dumped it out. It’s so astringent, it takes like I left a cup of orange pekoe steep for an hour. Will always get the tea bags from now on.

Flavors: Astringent

This is my go-to tea if I’m on the go and need a quick fix. I find the steeped tea at Tim Horton’s such a refreshing change from their coffee. I always drink this tea with two milk and one sugar. I’m not sure why but drinking this in the autumn and winter makes it taste so much better.

drank Pumpkin Spice by Tim Hortons
354 tasting notes

I’ve become addicted to DAVID’s spiced pumpkin tea. As I’m waiting for that tea to arrive in the mail, I decided to pick up a box of this. I figured you can’t go wrong with $3.50 for a box of 20 tea bags (It’s amazing how they selling cups of tea of this for $1.5-$2.00…such a killing!).

I brought it home and made this tea into a latte. I ripped open 4 tea bags, poured the dust into my steeper, and brewed it for 5min with 8oz of boiled water, mixed with frothed 1% milk and about 1/2 tsp of sugar.

At first I didn’t mind this: spices with a pumpkin flavouring (although the flavouring was a bit artificial). However, as I got closer to the bottom of my cup, the spices started getting more powerful. It’s then I realized that one of the main ingredients in this tea is BLACK PEPPER. I could understand cinnamon, but black pepper? It’s then that my latte reminded me of some soup I made the other day (chicken, wild rice + veggies mixed with milk to make it a “cream” soup. so good) when I accidentally added a touch too much of black pepper. Now, that soup was good, but a pumpkin spice latte should not remind me of it, nor should have black pepper in it in my opinion. My stomach started feeling weird with the pepper.

Altogether, not the best tea due to the potency of the black pepper, but I can easily use it up by using 2 tea bags of this mixed with another tea. Won’t repurchase, but there is no guilt in me buying this since it’s only $3.50. Not to mention, I made 1 latte for my husband, one for me, so I’m almost half way done the box already since buying it yesterday.

UPDATE: This tea is a bit better just as plain tea (i.e. 1 bag steeped in 1 cup of boiled water). It tastes like slightly sweet rooibos with a bit of spice. I’ll prob use it up as an afternoon tea at work. Still not crazy about it, but it’s not bad.

drank Honey Lemon by Tim Hortons
287 tasting notes

I seem to have come down with a nasty cold, which means teas that wouldn’t necessarily be my first pick (but at least I can get through anything I have with licorice). I found myself at school this afternoon and needed a throat soothing pick me up, so I went with this. Honey has never been my favourite, and lemon has to be done well so I didn’t have high expectations.

Overall this was okay (take that with a grain of salt; I can’t really taste anything right now). The lemon was very lemony. It tasted like the chicken breast my boyfriend basted in lemon juice the other day. Not strictly unpleasant, but perhaps a little intense and acidic. Didn’t really get the honey at all. Wouldn’t buy again unless it was the best option around for a sore throat.

A girl where I work told me that she loves this tea and if I hadn’t tried it yet, then I should so after work, off I went to Timmies. I got a medium with cream and sugar. Yum! She was right, it is really good. I’m not sure if I would like it as much as I did if I hadn’t had cream and sugar added. The cream made it nice and smooth and the sugar added a little extra sweetness. The pumpkin and spice flavours were definitely there. It was like Thanksgiving or Autumn in a cup, if you will. Even the girl who waited on me said how happy she was that they brought this tea back because it was her favourite. I thoroughly enjoyed my cup of this. I like it better than any other pumpkin tea I’ve tried so far. I’m happy it wasn’t too “chai” like because I’m not a fan of chai teas. I’ll have to try it black and see if I still like it as much.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Spices

This was my first tea other than my mom’s no frills orange pekoe that I had. I loved it. About 20 years later I married an Englishman. Funny how that works.

I like it! I’m a peppermint tea guy anyway and when I’m not at home and on the go and want to grab a quick tea, I’ll often go through the drive-through and pick up a medium. Sipping away on it makes me feel calm and soothed. I’m no pro in how a high quality peppermint tea is supposed to taste as opposed to a lower quality one but I like this one just fine!

drank Orange Pekoe by Tim Hortons
94 tasting notes

This is absolutely average tea but at it’s an old reliable, I guess. There’s nothing really to describe because I think most people have had a plain ol’ Orange Pekoe before. I think their “steeped tea” is this tea, too. Regardless of the quality, there’s something comforting about a warm cup of Timmie’s in your hands. It just makes everything better.
