drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA
606 tasting notes

This tastes really good, it just has such a weird aroma to it.
Like dry, it smells like peach-o’s!! A very summer tea :)
But as I’m drinking it, it has a really odd, rotten peach smell. The taste is good! The smell is just off putting…

In other news, I did my thing at Disney today and AHH DISNEY. I don’t have Traditions and all my introductory orientation whatever stuff till next week which is great! But I think I’m going to have to sell my VidCon ticket because it’s going to clash with training. Like I can give up regular shifts, EASY. But they probably already have my training schedule set in stone so if I don’t show up, that’s going to be a problem. Oh well, maybe next year :(

Iced 8 min or more

Ahh nicce guava goodness :) Definitely one that I’ll repurchase next time I find myself at a Fresh & Easy or Whole Foods :) But dang, I love the ones with chia seeds in it already.

Have a fantastic first day!


Yay for finishing finals! Yay for first day at Disney!

Red Leaf Tea – Sample #10
30 May 2014, side-by-side comparison with Sample #9

Dry: Lighter than #9, almost like a Spring Meadow Green. Has a more leafy dry leaf smell compared to #9

Straight: Almost like a hunter green luquor, with a pale green froth. Not bitter :)

Latte: Ahh it was great straight, and it was just as great as a latte! Definitely finding myself reaching for this mug more than the other :)

Red Leaf Tea – Sample #9
30 May 2014, side-by-side comparison with Sample #10

Dry: Darker, not so much olive, but.. same shade, a tad brighter.

Straight: Dark forest green liquor with an olive-like froth. Slight bitterness detected.

Latte: Nice! But a tad bland. A touch of sugar (on top of the already sweet vanilla almond milk) is needed to bring flavours out more.

Colour: 79
Flavour: 80
Bitterness: 73
Suggested Price: $11

Oh this smells divine!
Thank you QueenOfTarts for sending me a sample!!

This definitely reminds me of DAVIDs Coffee Cake, lessen the coffee but add more sweet cake to it. And this is rooibos, rather than black. Definitely does give off the nice and sweet aroma!
The woodsy, sweet rooibos definitely comes out when it steeps. oh for some reason, it tastes like how a sweet coffee cake would taste like if it were baked in an open fire oven atop cedar wood. It has the sweet, cake-y smell, but like.. it tastes like red. And red to me is cedar wood and it tastes lovely :)

So I’m studying for Forensic Anthropology, but decided to take a break for dinner. And with dinner, I always watch a show! What better show than Bones hehe :) Every time I watch that show now, I test my anthropology skills. The second Bones said ‘narrow nasal aperture’ and something about the mandible, I knew that the victim was a caucasoid. And now, I’m about half an hour in and they’ve just identified the murder weapon, and I’m all BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA TO THE STERNUM YES. Mainly because like a majority of our final tomorrow is on trauma so that’s a thing I’ll need to know :)

But because of this Forensic Anthropology course, I’m actually understanding everything they’re saying. Whether if its sexing an individual, or figuring out their race or age, I completely understand. It’s actually quite fascinating :) I love how I can watch this show and it’ll still be valuable to my education hehe

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Burnt Sugar, Coffee, Vanilla

Do you get pineapple from this one? Your description doesn’t sound like you do. I’m not a pineapple fan, and otherwise this tea sounds yum!

And it also sounds like you’re going to do really well in your class!


Good luck on your final!! I minored in anthropology and found it interesting. Unfortunately, I did not get the option to take as many forensic anthropology courses as I would have liked though.


Also, that reminds me…I have some catching up to do on Bones


*Cheri, *I surprisingly did not find pineapple in this tea, nor DAVIDs Coffee Cake! Coffee Cake is good for a dark, robust tea. This one is more on the sweeter end of cakey goodness :)

VariaTEA, thank you tons! This is my second anthro class that I’ve taken and honestly, I just took it for GE requirements haha. Luckily it’s something that I’m pretty fascinated by (thank you to Bones hehe), so studying for this final is a breeze!

I’m just scared for this final since its 50% of my grade!! I have a 97% in the class but… dude. I really want to keep my A in that class!


I am sure you will keep your A. I mean with a 97%, I feel it is safe to say you know your stuff. Just don’t stress and I am sure you will do amazing.


C’mon, you’re going to do awesome on this final. =)


I just finished my final and it took me about 45 minutes. Though it took me a short time, I’m quite confident I still maintained my A in the class!!


Yay!! Congrats!!

Sipdown (158)
Thank you shmiracles for the sample!

It’s good. Fruity black tea, smooth as it does down!
But it does have a bit of a mediciney taste. I’ll probably finish half the cup, plop a couple ice cubes and have the rest of this tea iced :)

((this is actually pretty good iced, ngl))

I just finished the first of four finals this week! Ahh so excited to be so close to being done! Two more tomorrow and one on wednesday. LET’S DO THIS.

Flavors: Berries, Cherry, Raspberry

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 236 ML

Almost done! Yay!

Aww, goodbye Blueberry Jam! You will be missed

Had this iced and tried to recreate it the same way the DAVIDs Sales Associate prepared it for me many weeks ago.
Steeped 3g of tea in 8oz water. Poured over ice with a touch of agave and milk! Didn’t taste the same, but it’s still really good :)

And I totally saw The Fault in Our Stars today.
Lulu (the one that didn’t read the book) was wondering why we were dying so much and she wanted to hold her tears in, but when everyone else is bawling around you, you can’t hold it in.
But it was a really good movie. Definitely one of the better book-to-movie adaptations I’ve seen! Stuff were definitely cut out, but it did stay pretty true to the book and I’m just so happy that this exists in the world.


I’m still going to hold off on this one and watch it later at home. I like my sads in private.


About two years ago, my roommate and I agreed that if TFiOS was ever turned into a movie, we had to watch it together. And last year, they announced it! We were so excited, but then we realized we didn’t want to be able to relive the book over and over again in just a wee 2 hours. We agreed that if we were going to suffer, we’re going to suffer together hehe.
And today was the day that pain demanded to be felt :’)

A great big ol thank you to Sil, VariaTEA, and NayLynn for sending this tea my way!
I’ve already sipped down NayLynn’s sample, and tonight is a sipdown from VariaTEA and I just have a wee sample left from Sil!
Thank you, ladies, for sending me my tummy soothing tea! Definitely will restock when I run out and get my cupboard to a reasonable amount :)


I have this too tonight :). Glad you are enjoying it btw.

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops


Disneyland. Literally.
