Yeah, so I’m generally a fan of this tea in the generic sense, as in my boss was on her way back to the office and asked us if she could get us anything. Always after an afternoon wake-up nudge, I opted for this tea. The tea itself is fine, but there’s this smell to the cup that is just revolting. It isn’t unique to this cup, either; I’d ordered a French Vanilla the other day and noticed the same thing. it’s…I don’t know. Sickly, sweet, almost…I can’t even describe it. Perhaps it’s the smell of the paper cup absorbing whatever liquid is inside it. either way, it’s incredibly distracting. I mean, look at me. I’m not even describing the tea because the smell was so noteworthy. It doesn’t help that the lid was defective and that little tab that’s supposed to flip back and secure snugly into place kept bashing me in the nose and so I got impatient and just wrenched the mofo loose so I could get at my tea without resorting to battle. So yeah, decent tea if you’re on the run (or in an office and distinctly not on the run, but needing to be woken nonetheless), but the smell of the cup or the air in the tea or whatever the heck it is just overwhelms everything.
as a loose leaf tea drinker, I tend to be a snob as to what banged tea I’ll drink but I really like this. I’m not tasting too much rooibos which makes me sad certain times and others I kinda like. roobios is one of those teas I have to be in the mood to have and if I’m not in the mood to taste roobios and in the mood for a pumpkin treat this is it. For a th tea I like it a lot and I bought a few boxes to last me til next year. I can definitely tell there is black pepper but it’s not too bad. It’s a good in a rush tea.
Tim’s again this morning, had to try this one after seeing it yesterday and after ordering my EG haha. I was actually torn between the pumpkin latte, or white hot chocolate with a pumpkin shot, or just this tea with cream+sugar or with nothing. I got it with nothing added, as my stomach is angry again sigh, hope I’m not getting the flu. Anyways, this is actually pretty good! And happy it’s caffeine free, as I’m not feeling caffeine this morning at all. Mildly spicy and I get a bit of the pumpkin in it too. I bet it’d be good with cream as well, but not today lol. Happy to try it, so far one of the better TH teas!
Eh, kind of weak. Ordered this at Tim Hortons this morning before I saw they have their pumpkin spice latte and tea in haha. Oh well, I was craving EG this morning anyways, got this with 1 cream, 1 sugar, and it’s ok, just not the strongest. But then I’m used to A&D’s pow of flavor lol. It will do for my bergamot fix, as I made Laoshan Black in my mug for later this morning, sipdown at that! Anyways, this will do for now.
So I was at a comedy show last week and the comedian had a bit about Tim Horton’s and how he was explaining to a non Canadian who Tim Horton was. The story was he convinced this non-Canadian that Tim Horton was the first and greatest president of Canada and to honor him we open a coffee and donut shop in every community in Canada.
So for anyone that doesn’t know, Tim Horton may have been a great man (or not so great depending on who you ask) but he was never premier nor president of Canada. ha ha. Go Hockey!
So I am having a steeped tea because I have a roomie staying with me. I get up at 5 am to get ready for work and try not to make much noise in the morning. I ended up leaving the house super early so stopped at Timmies to get my usual go to. I still ended up being at work a half hour early. It is not too bad this morning. Not as smooth as usual. Must have been the end of the pot. It is still thick and a strong. I think it is a Ceylon base but who knows. Tim is not giving up his secrets.
In the Vancouver airport, headed to the island with the bfs for a wedding on his side! So I grabbed a cup of this, my go-to, to-go (haha) tea. I mean, it’s pretty hard to mess up peppermint lol. Tasty and refreshing and nice on my tummy after my greasy yet amazing bagel BELT. Lol, any good tea recommendations in Vancouver or on the island?
Feeling supremely lazy this morning so I grabbed one these on my way to work.
Also, I need to buy a new kettle for at work because the one my boss bought is one of those one side coffee, one side hot water jobbies and it makes every cup taste like hot plastic.
Not that a cup os steeped tea tastes much better. Now everyone yell at me so I’ll stop!
Ok, so I bought this & a bagel to kill time while I was waiting for a store to open this morning. Bought myself a new bathing suit, for my birthday pool party! woooooooo
I got a large, 2 bags in. I let it steep for a couple of minutes. All I got was artificial blueberry taste. UGH ok Tim Horton’s, you are a Canadian company, you should know good blueberry. BLECH!
I ended up tossing the cup.
The water temp scale cannot go high enough for how hot this stupid crap was!
So this was my first tea as a married woman – we have been so busy with wedding preparation, setup, enjoyment, take down and aftermath that this may be the only tea I have had in a week. I love mint so it really hit the spot, and it was thoughtful that my mother-in-law made it for me. We have been together for nine years so nothing really changed but it was amazing to get together with our best friends and family to celebrate. It was a true Nova Scotia kitchen party – we are thinking of having a celebration every year in the same style. Happy tea!
I had a double-double (two creams, two sugars) very early at the hospital this morning and it’s really not that bad. I do find though that it can sometimes taste like cardboard. I always thought it was the paper cup but you never know.
Maybe it was because I was super tired or fighting with an uncomfortably dry contact lens, but this time it was considerably less cardboard-y. Actually, none to be had.
It’s a standard mass-produced Red Rose-like black tea. Maybe I like it because of the cream? I never ask for cream anywhere else nor do I ever have it at home, and come to think of it, I enjoy TH’s coffee as a double-double.
I’ll be a little kinder with the rating.
I didn’t have any tea today!!
It’s been such a stressful week that I just withdrew from everything except for work, and now I really want a cuppa! I’m craving so badly… but then I’d never get to sleep and herbal won’t do(last day is tomorrow. Both good and bad I say!)
Anyhow, I’m off to bed. So exhausted and not looking forward to a repeat of today heh
I had this the other day when I was staying overnight on campus. You get a free pastry and drink for breakfast at TH so I opted for this. Peppermint is pretty much peppermint. Sure, it doesn’t have the POW that some peppermint has but nevertheless, it’s a decent herbal. It’s a hard flavour to screw up so it’s a good choice if you’re unsure of their other flavours.
Hmm, Didn’t win anything at Timmy’s this evening but this herbal wasn’t bad at all.
I couldn’t help but think of my Cocomint, from David’s Tea, the whole time I was sipping away at this. It’s a mild breath of fresh air so it passes as a minty thing. This was a little creamy too, like it had a touch of vanilla. Maybe a little candied.
I left my favourite timolino at work the other day and needed a tea fix on the way. I used to drink this ALL the time, might as well have just hooked me up to an IV. However, this time around all I tasted was hot paper. I finished it, only because I told myself it was all in my head. People at work laughed at me when I told them I had one, they didn’t believe me.
This may very well be the only time you’ll ever see me review a bagged commercial tea. My real life friend for a decade up in Ontario sent me a big ol’ package of teas after she found out I went tea crazy. Unfortunately, I must not have relayed to her I’m a loose leaf guy because I ended up with half a dozen varieties of tea bags of different flavors /sigh
Thus, here I sit feeling obligated to TRY at least one of them once before I give this all away…..so here goes.
I’ve never tasted something so tart yet washed out at the same time. It’s like they are TRYING to pack some flavor punch in it but it’s so shallow it makes me want to laugh. And the worst part is it doesn’t even remotely taste like blueberries! It’s more of a tangy raspberry clone or something.
In honor of the $10 shipping she paid to get all this too me, I’m forcing myself to drink it all….but I am not happy about it >.<
It’s been just one of those days. Woke up late, broke two glasses (one of which contained milk and got all over my breakfast of toast). So had to go to work with no breakfast and bad Canadian winter roads; took an extra half hour to get to work.
As I’m feeling sorry for myself, my awesome co-worker brings me in my usual order from Tim Hortons: a steeped tea. I am forever indebted!
While it is not the most delicious tea it still somehow manages to hit the right spot every time. It is dark, almost looks like black coffee, the orange pekoe flavour is strong, but not bitter, it feels heavy and it leaves a creamy after taste.
My day is now back on track, and thanks to this tea(and my co-worker), this day looks like it will be pretty good after all.
