Today is finally my day off so I decided to have a minor sipdown and get some tea out of my way to make room for new ones :] I LOVE this rooibos. It’s absolutely perfect and a great start to my busy(but relaxing) day!

Finally finished this one off! It was good but I don’t think I’ll be missing it.

I figured out the secret to getting the creamy vanilla flavor! The water temperature was 204* and steeped it for 3 minutes. It turned out SO good.

So I just picked up this nifty little electric kettle and it’s amazing! It heated the water perfectly to 175°. For some reason I feel like I’m getting a little bit of a sweeter flavor from this. It’s delicious.

MMmm I finally tried this one again and it’s much better :] water to matcha ratio is fixed so I’m able to get nice little tart notes of cranberry instead of watered down smartie. Mmmmmmmmmmm :]

Today is a matcha kind of day :] This smells so good! It kind of has a hint of the cherry medicine smell to it but that was expected.. The flavor reminds me of cherry tootsie pops or a cherry sucker :] Oh my goodness. This is good.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

I received this as a sample in my last order. Well I needed a nice pick-me-up yesterday (yes I’m back logging) so I thought I’d give this a try. The smell was slightly tart and was so delicious! The flavor was full of creamy, lime goodness. The only complaint I had was that it left a bad aftertaste. I would definitely order this again :]

This sounds really good! I love all things lime. I’m thinking I need to get a DT order together in the near future!

This morning has been interesting… I’m attempting to make a raw tomato bread and my blender wasn’t big enough to hold all of the ingredients so I had to get creative and blend everything separate. Ugh. Let’s hope it turns out.
I needed something to relax with and for me matcha is as relaxing as it gets. I love sipping out of my little bowl :] This smells amazing! It’s more of a raspberry candy smell though, like most of Red Leaf’s fruit matchas. The flavor is light and sweet. To me the raspberry is very juicy and natural tasting. Very nice :] The sweetness of the fruit blends so well with the matcha. MMMmmm :]

Thanks Finn88! Well the first time I tried this it was waaaayyy strong. So I cut the brewing time and I’m hoping it’s a little better. Well it’s a little better, but it still has a weird aftertaste. I can get the cola and cherry flavor but the aftertaste is just breaking the deal for me :[ Maybe this will have to be tried as an ice tea or something. More experimenting is to be done! I’m determined to like this tea.

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
