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 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.
Being someone who loves anything pumpkin, I had to try this tea when it came to our local Tim Hortons last month. I’m really glad I didn’t go out of my way to grab a cup. I found this tea to taste very nutty for some reason, which I did not enjoy. The spices were much too strong, despite my steeping the bag for only a few minutes. I won’t be drinking this one again.
I slept in today, and because of that I didn’t actually have time to make myself a tea for work – which was crushing. This is the first time since starting that I haven’t brought tea with me to work, and I felt really empty handed all morning.
However, because my coworker Briana is really sweet she stopped at Tim Hortons on her way back from break and brought me back a cup of peppermint tea (without my even asking, which was so thoughtful). We’d been talking about tea a few shifts ago and I mentioned that I love mint teas – especially ones that are super strong or overleafed, and I guess she was actually paying attention to the conversation because not only did she pick the right tea (meaning, what I would have asked for if she’d told me she was gonna get me tea), but she also got an extra teabag for me so I could steep it extra strong!
Honestly, it wasn’t the most amazing peppermint tea I’ve ever had. Not by a long shot – but it wasn’t too bad either considering it’s bagged tea from, basically, a ‘fast food’ brand name. It was pretty minty – and with the extra bag I was able to make it really strong and powerful smelling. However, what I disliked what that in the end of the sip there was this odd taste like dirt. It was only really brief and vanished into the minty fresh aftertaste almost right away, but that split second dirt taste was present in every sip. It was sort of distracting, really.
Anyway, a huge thank you to Briana for saving me at work today (super unexpectedly too) since I didn’t have tea of my own like normal.
