drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

My wife (De) got this in store yesterday and I’ve been resteeping those leaves all day. I love this tea. Loooove it. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, and it’s got enough of a zing to wake you up, which is exactly what I needed. It really does remind me of a honeybee in a delicious way. Definitely picking more of this up soon.

I smelled that last weekend when I went in, but don’t know what I think yet. I’ll give it a go at some point. Creme de menthe sounded good too except I hate licorice and am uneasy about pu-erh.

The Creme de Menthe is…I don’t even know. It’s different. De didn’t like the cinnamon in it and I just…I really don’t know why I didn’t like it. I’m going to give it another go, maybe with some spearmint in the mix.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
