drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
810 tasting notes

I’ve had the biggest sweet tooth lately.

Trolling through my notes for this tea I found my recipe for the salted caramel hot chocolate I made a month or so ago. Yay for me writing down EVERYTHING, because I was able to recreate it today!

It was just what I needed – something sweet and warm and cozy for the end of a Saturday afternoon. Yum!

Ohhhhh jealous. I’m thinking I need to go pick up some small amounts of a few things (like this) from DavidsTea soon, before they do something horrible like discontinue more of my favourite blends….

RIGHT? I can’t remember if this one was on the list or not (the actual, completed list that is) but I’m shocked at some of the things being discontinued. Mostly the darn strawberry shortcake tea. And I didn’t even get to try the chocolate/ice cream cake ones…
UGH. I could go on but it sounds like you understand. This really has put a sour taste in my mouth with DAVIDs…

Kittenna

Yeah…. Nuts, I could have passed on a sample of the Chocolate Cake one had I known, but of course, then you wouldn’t have been able to get more anyhow…

I actually quite liked Strawberry Shortcake. I wouldn’t re-stock, but I definitely thought it was good! I’m most upset with Banana Oolong. And I missed out on getting more Caramel Spice :( And I’m not sure if I want more Super Chocolate… and I thought my mom would really like Creme de Menthe… SIGH.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
