drank Pink Flamingo by DAVIDsTEA
1351 tasting notes

I was trying to figure out which herbal to make iced tea with and found the last of my bag of this one. I dumped it in, made a pot and accidentally let it steep way too long. Still, I put it in the fridge overnight and let it do its thing. Today it’s nice and cold and refreshing, but a bit too hibiscus-y for my tastes. I still don’t care much for this tea, but tonight it is definitely hitting the spot.

Also, while picking up teas in store today, I sold a travel press and 50g of tea to my sister in law XD. DT should totally be paying me.

I really miss this tea. I hope they bring it back next year.

I wasn’t very impressed with the spring and summer teas, but the fall collection has completely stolen my heart.

The summer teas really didn’t do it for me and the spring ones were so so. But I loved Pink Flamingo. I wish I could find another citrus one like it.

I agree, the summer collection was disappointing. Not a single of the blends actually had tea in them.

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.
