drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA
1300 tasting notes

Down down down the drain she goes… @
(because the “at” symbol kinda looks like a swirl, get it? yes I am a dork)
So… there was a day when I lurrrved this tea. Liquid bees, it didn’t sound all that appealing… but somehow it fit right into my cupboard.
And now? well whatever flavourings they used here are apparently don’t work for me. This is something I so did not expect!! :6
Half the cup went unfinished. Gosh that was painful to throw out!
Maybe one day I’ll be able to handle flavoured tea again. For now, it seems I must resign to either straight tea, or those with the simplest and most natural additions possible. Well, I suppose I should have known better than to even try. It’s such a shame, since I now have atleast 20g of it left in my cupboard! :/
(first come first serve to anyone who wants it! Lookin at you TO people!)

I love it but i’ve still got 100grams of it lol

Mercuryhime

I find that I have periods where I crave straight teas and anything else is just unappealing. And other times, I just want FLAVORS. So maybe one day you’ll like this tea again. :)

Indigobloom

yup, that happens to me sometimes to!! except with my current health status, I suspect it’ll be atleast six months… and Yerba tends to lose potency quickly so I figured it might as well find a good home now :)

Erin: If you run out, let me know! though 100g is alot.

Erin

Will do :)

momo

haha you reminded me, in Italian the @ is called a chiocciola, which means snail!

Indigobloom

lol that makes sense, it does look like a snail!! haha

aisling of tea

Oh man, I live for this tea, and I got my coworker addicted to it too. Anytime I makes a Davids run, it’s “What do you want?” “Honeybeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” XD.

I need to put together an at-home tea kit for her, so far she only grabs cups to go on workdays.

Mélissa

Honey flavored tea sounds weird to me.

Cattibrie

It doesn’t taste like honey to me. It tastes like a fuzzy bee. Ugh. I think this is one of those ones you love or hate. No middle ground.

Indigobloom

LOL Aisling. Maybe it’s worth it just to be able to say Honeybeeeeeeeee :P

Melissa: Have you ever seen the Lush Honey I Shrunk the Kids soap? It tastes just the way that soap smells. Heavenly!! well when there are no allergies involved lol

Cattibrie: I have to agree with you there. In fact, I find most of DT blends are like that!

C-chan

If no-one’s claimed it yet, I’d gladly take it off your hands. I find this is a great tea for when I’ve just arrived at school for a loooong day. I actually just ran out of the bit I did have too, so having more would be wonderful!

myspecialtea :)

if it’s still there i’m game as well…always good for a swap of course if you had another tea in mind, my cupboard is full with DT and other teas to enjoy- feel free to check my profile and message me, i’m north of TO ;)

Indigobloom

Oh no, how did I not see these notices?? they must have been lost in the frozen notice fiasco (I still have 29 of them waiting to be read but can’t access them)
This was snapped up quick. So sorry everyone :(

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
