drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
450 tasting notes

Wow, I definitely suck at picking out teas for myself based on the notes and the way they smell in the store. Just to set the record straight though, this tea doesn’t smell at all of actual orange blossoms, but I imagine that isn’t exactly news.
Definitely getting the bubble gum thing others have mentioned, and there really isn’t any vanilla to speak of. I’m still on the hunt for my perfect creamcicle tea though!
I’ve tried this tea with milk and sugar, plain, and also with a touch of vanilla agave. It’s a lose lose situation for me. So disheartening to see the entire remainder of yet another package that I’m going to have to force myself to finish. Or maybe I can donate it LOL.
At least I know that tomorrow morning’s tea (vanilla orchid or maybe jasmine pearls) won’t let me down!

I enjoyed it enough. If you’re not too crazy about it in a month or so, let me know and maybe we can do a swap. I’ll be in Toronto soon enough.

Absolutely! You’re welcome to all of it. I’m in waterloo, but my family is in Toronto, so I’m there often enough. Plus I can mail tea just as easily. It’d be my first swap!

Cavocorax

Great. I’ll try to come back to you once I get to Toronto, and get settled!

Sounds like a plan!

butiki does a tangerine creamsicle guayasa.

So I’ve heard! I’m going to have to try it, although I’m afraid I’m not really sure what a guayassa even is at this point.

JustJames

it’s an alternative caffeine source.. quite cool actually. it’s bark from a south american holly tree as far as i know. personally i don’t like the taste, but the creamsicle was the best of them!

Cavocorax

Haha. So it’s kind of the opposite of the Orange Blossom? One to put you to sleep, the other to wake you up. Don’t mix them up. :D

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
