drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
1351 tasting notes

Oh my God, this tea. I only got 10 grams to start…I didn’t think I’d like it. In fact, I was sure I wouldn’t like it, but since it’s so very popular, I figured I needed to at least give it a try. You see, I don’t like chocolate. It’s okay, but I don’t go crazy for it like most girls.

At first sip, I immediately regretted not buying more. It was a matter of days before I ran out and I was so very sad. It was love at first sip, the way everything worked together…so very yummy. I could see why it is everyone’s favourite. But for me, it satisfies my sweet tooth without being overly chocolatey.

My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday to try and avoid the crowds a bit, but she braved the crowds of the local mall to take me to DavidsTea and buy one of their adorable love tins with 40 g of Read My Lips and four chocolates with Read My Lips-infused middles. Best Valentine’s Day gift ever!

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
