Yum-yum, December 1st. Had this before, loved it then so there was no doubt I’d love it this time too!!

I am so loving this advent calendar. Even though I have tried or own most of the teas it is still great fun. And it takes the morning decision out of my hands which is nice since I have so many teas now.

No kidding! I always wake up a little earlier so i can enjoy my tea at home!

Wow, I’m almost sorry I put off purchasing this tea. It is delightful and this morning it steeped twice. Tue second steep really brought out the cinnamon.

More later when I’m not fighing with a touch screen keyboard.

I put it off too, as I felt it was a cooler weather tea, but when I actually tried it, I got a strange taste or aftertaste. Sad really, as I’d expected to love it.

MaddHatter

It’s the heat from the cinnamon, but if it is bitter the water could be too hot?

Amariel

It wasn’t heat, that I could tell, but it was almost licorice-y…it might have just been a bad brew.

So GOOD!! So good!!

Oreole

Amariel

I like this tea a lot and will probably go back and get 50g or more of it.

MaddHatter

Its worth a 100g tin, and I’m not a fan of white tea or chamomile

drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
232 tasting notes

I’ve had this in my cupboard for a while and I have merrily carted it from work to home and this weekend to Camp Bernard! Yes this tea has been to Scout Camp!! And I must say I was SO happy to have it with me! It fought off the cold, and slowed down the progression of the cold I have now.

The kids agreed that the tea smelled like carrot cake with frosting and one even went so far as to try and trade me his hot chocolate for my tea at “mug up” – Sorry kid, this tea is for big kids.

Mmmm carrots, Mmmm apples, Mmmm delish! You won’t want to share either.

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Oh Detox, you are a girls best friend the morning after when she gets home still a little drunk and missing half her costume (I was still decent).

I don’t know what is in this but it tastes amazing and I’m almost ready to nap headache free.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
232 tasting notes

Ummm… Still undecided.

This might be a fruit Tea that I share, with my kids at work. It smells delightful, like sour cherry pie and banana splits but the taste falls flat. It could be because I did not put enough tea into my Libre or it could be that my first scoop got too much hibiscus in it, but either way something was missing.

It’s a great tea for a great cause, I will just have to give it one more try before I completely write it off as a no-go.

drank Raspberry by Tea Desire
232 tasting notes

Woops! Too many leaves for my little 12oz Libre, so the first steep smelled delicious but it tasted like GRASS!!

The second and third steep’s are much better and far more palpable, although the third steep has no raspberry scent and the leaves are taking up almost 2/3’s of the glass – next time LESS LEAVES silly me!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C
aisling of tea

Oh man this one sounds good. <3 raspberry…I might have to give it a go.

Last little bit… I got 4 steeps out of it in the Libre glass my brother gave me (what an amazing invention!!!)

Mmmm, I am counting the days for more of this delightful tea, until then I will enjoy some Carrot Cake Oolong instead.

I have had two “Mini Betty’s” (a single serve brown teapot) of this today and there is last little bit left for when I get home. I wish there was a tea fairy that could deliver more to me! sigh alas I will have to wait until next payday.

It is just so sweet and delicious, I am sad that I can only ever get three steepings out of this tea, but for the cost and all that flavouring, I am not going to complain… Mmmm, peeeaches! Aaapricots! Mmmmmmmm!

Profile

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
