drank Crème de Menthe by DAVIDsTEA
286 tasting notes

I am on a mission to drink up some of the smaller samples I have so that my tea cupboard will be a tidier collection of teas that I actually want to have around, instead of samples that I keep ignoring in favor of teas that I prefer.

And it’s not that I don’t like this one – it’s creamy and minty and tastes like Christmas. I feel like I should be sipping it in front of a roaring fire, watching the snow fall. Which is partly why I want to drink it up, I only have enough left for one more cup and it is definitely not a summer tea.

With the licorice and vanilla and cinnamon, this one still smells like a ginger cookie to me. It’s very odd, but I don’t mind it at all. Better that than the stinky feet, dirt, fish smells that other people are getting. Yay, allergies?

It’s hard! I keep pulling out all of my little sample baggies, and then thinking… ‘that Butiki in the cupboard sounds awesome right now…’ and putting the samples away. Hahaha!

haha! My problem is I’m having a hard time convincing myself to sipdown all my discontinued favorites, like Davidstea Rootbeer and Ice Cream Cake… I have a bunch of small quantities of stuff like that, and I know they’ll go stale at some point but once they’re gone they’re really gone! I’m a tea hoarder :(

Ahhhh, I never had a chance to try those ones, so I don’t even know what I’m missing. :P
