So yes major backlog!
I’m sorry my little kettles, for being a ghost.
Also I had to spring clean my tea ….sadly. The queen of teas had to retire some where they can only reside in my memory . that is OK. Nothing lasts forever. Especially with tea it is all about the moment. It is the perfect blend of thing/experience to get philosophical
Sometimes you have to give up a tea forever or just once a year. So never take it for granted.

I love this smell like candy. Melon. Summer.
Of course I drink it hot first. I’m a hot girl what can I say.

Iced later I promise.

Brewed smells like heaven melon. Mouth watering.

Smells like soap from the body shop. A good thing I’m sure.

Tastes nice. Tastes refreshing.can’t wait to ice it
Melon,lightly sweet.mellow.

No commitment just freshness. Like a ripe melon.

Feels right for a gloomy day to brighten up all.
Seems perfect for summer and all of the sweaty nights.

Really nice. Not a commitment but lovely as long as it lasts

Flavors: Cucumber, Melon

Underwhelming. Ironically unsurprising
Weak . Such a disappointing tea from a lovely tea house.

Rich Mango pieces,thick braided black tea. Lovely presentation.
Almost honey-like in it’s steeped aroma. Deep orange fluid.
Lacks that flavor bomb Paradise Found has but fruity,indeed.
As for taste it is lightly sweet,even made stronger seems lighter.
Very gentle tea.Fruity with slight sour fruitiness which is pleasant. I can see this being a nice iced tea but I would steep much longer and wouldn’t be shy with the amount of tea steeped.
i don’t know it seems a bit too sweet.too malty. either too strong or too weak.no matter how I’ve prepared it. The end of the cup is too sweet.
I think I’ll stick with other DT black fruity teas ; Paradise Found being what this could have been.
Basically started out good and then went downhill from there. But this might rock your boat but like I said much better fruity teas to be found. I think I prefer just sniffing the tin and not drinking it. Ouch.

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Mango

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA
226 tasting notes

Ah yes my little tea kettles I’m baaaaaaaack!
Hold the applause.

First of all New summer collection..yay!

First kiss of the season( I do drink and tell) is Peaches and Cream.
Smells like super sweet gummy bears procreating with peach Campinos and sweet and sour sugar dusting on sour keys. Paints quite the picture so far.

Hope it tastes as naughtily sweet and sour as my nose predicts.

My one touch Breville is working away( YES I am going to dig that in every time!)

Once brewed it is yellow with some sediment.
The smell is warming and sweet reminds me of a pared down sultry creamy take on the hot apple cider.

Taste time: do we have a winner or will the bitter swallow of defeat prevail?

Mmm velvety and creamy. Very pleasant like slipping under a spell.not too sweet but still juicy like a fresh fruit stand warmed under a wonderful spring sun. Mmm

Not a staple but perfect for a fling in spring.

4 tsp

Forget it. Keeps deleting my note.
I prefer white chocolate frost and read my lips.
Totally frustrated by this ridiculously counter intuitive rating scheme that doesn’t work like it used to on my tablet.

drank Chai On Life by DAVIDsTEA

Dreadfully cold outside..
Time for a review.

Smell wise: Ayurvedic, Strong and robust cinnamon, ginger there and a whisper of coconut. Am worried it won’t be a true Chai but the smell is nice and white Chai teas are rare.

Once brewed in my perfect Breville: Smells become so beautifully balanced ..everything fits.

As for taste: Surprisingly delicate, Cinnamon kisses,warming ginger,. Still not a Chai…

If you want a true Chai …this is not it. Lovely way to start the day though. Or end a very very cold day. Do wish it was a little less delicate.

Perfect for the cinnamon shy and people coming into or going out in the winter cold .

I’ll finish the bag but not sure about it being a staple. My partner likes it though.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Coconut, Peppercorn
