Made the mistake of making a cup of this while the wife was on her way to DavidsTea. One quick text later and 100 grams of this yummy tea is on the way to me XD. It was just so warm and yummy and perfect. I can’t wait until it cools off and I can have more warm teas.

Oh yeah, good call. I’ve been tempted to get more of this. It’s been so long!

That’s better. Juicy and fruity and yummy. Not too hibby, not too sweet, juuuuust right. However, I should not be drinking mate when I don’t have much to do today XD jitters for no reason

I’m sad, because this was one of the first teas I ever bought from DT, but today it is just not doing it for me. Not gonna change my rating because I probably messed up the prep, but I’m sad, I was so looking forward to this tea this morning.

Still adore this tea. Steeping and resteeping the hell out of it today. I love watching it uncurl in my steeper.

drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA

I’m not sure about this tea. I like cakey teas in my cupboard because since I found out that I’m diabetic about a year ago, I try to reach for cake teas instead of cake to satisfy that craving. This tea smells spot on, my mouth was watering because I love carrot cake. But the tea itself was kind of a let down. I want more spices, maybe if it was a carrot cake chai I’d be happier. Still, not bad. Just probably won’t grab more.

As I finish this tea, the spices come to the forefront, but so does a headache. I’ll be avoiding this one, unfortunately.

Nooooo don’t say that. =0

You never know, you might like it! And even if you don’t, you only have a sample size.

Am I missing something really obvious? I couldn’t find this tea so I had to put it in myself, but it’s been out for a couple of weeks.

Oh well. I LOVE this tea. It tastes like Red Bull, but not bubbly. It is my go-to energy tea every morning. Right now, I usually brew it and pour it over ice because it is HOT out.

Fjellrev

Crazy, if this is new, I’m going to have to check it out. So out of the loop haha.

Daddyselephant

Same, but it is delicious. I can’t believe I’ve been inactive for two years >.

Fjellrev

Yeah! I’ve been wondering where you’ve been. Great to see you back!

Daddyselephant

Awww thanks <3 I’ve missed y’all!

I will never not love this tea. Brewed and then poured over ice, it smelled and tasted just perfect. I love all things spearmint…and so do my cats XD

This was the other tea of the day today and it was okay. Tasty, but too hibby for me. Coldbrewed kept the hibiscus at bay the other day, though!

Grabbed from the local DT as the tea of the day in my iced tea mug ($1 tea? hell yea) with agave. Sooooo tasty. I always forget I like this one. Light and refreshing.

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

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 five! 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), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) 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 stevia 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.
