1237 Tasting Notes


This was one of the iced TOTD’s yesterday, so I decided to give it another go. Nope, still not for me. I get a hint of watermelon flavor, but mostly it’s a too-tart apple.

I cannot get enough of this tea. I really can’t. It’s so damn good. It taste like blueberries and tea and deliciousness. The word that comes to mind every time I sip it is “round”. It tastes like a big, round blueberry. Om nom nom

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

This was one of the two teas of the day for today, and when I stopped in this morning, this was the only one they had ready, so I snagged two tumblers of it. You see, when the iced tea promotion started, it was a day when the office was wretchedly home 30-40 degrees C, and I had forgotten any kind of drink at home. So when I went on a tea run, I bought two of the iced tea promo tumblers to get me through the day. Now I keep them at the office. I’ve almost made friends with a couple of my coworkers and let them know that they’re welcome to use them as long as they wash them when they’re done, so these suckers have seen a lot of mileage already, and they’re not even a week old!

Anyhoo, I had this without any kind of sweetner and it wasn’t bad! I did find myself craving something sweet in it, but that’s okay. It was still a cup full of mapley goodness on its own. Definitely one I would return to.


If you really want to over-maple your brain, use maple syrup as your sweetener. Obviously a occasional treat, but soo good! Best in winter with a hot cup of Oh Canada.

Finally cold brewed this and it is not as amazing as I had hoped, sadly. I think hot is the way I’ll enjoy this tea the most. It’s more shortcake with strawberry.

I wasn’t expecting to like this, I’m not a huge pina colada fan. But I was happily surprised at how good it was! I cold brewed it and it got me through a few days of brutally hot temps at the office. I think I need to get more of this! The girls told me it tastes like pineapple juice and it really, really does. Yum.

Will Work For Tea

YUM! I wonder if it would be good with a spike of rum, to be enjoyed at home. :)

I got 25 g of this and used it all to cold brew a pot of this. It was good, juicy and light, but ultimately I had to use 25 g to make a pot and it just didn’t wow me enough to be worth the amount of tea I had to use.

Buy the Stars

Yeah, I’ve noticed that you have to use a LOT of it if you really want it to taste good; and being heavier means it’s less tea at a more expensive price so it’s really not a Stock Up On tea for me. :/ Nice as an iced snack in store, but that’s about it.


I haven’t done a cost comparison, but I’m thinking it’s still cheaper per cup than buying juice? Which I would (will) use it as a replacement for.

True, but we don’t drink juice, so it’s still not worth it to me.


Fair enough.

Ugh. I came down with a bad, bad case of food poisoning Friday night and ended up having to leave work early yesterday because of it. When I’m ill, blood vessels burst in my face and I look like a zombie XD. But that worked in my favor when I asked my boss if I could go home early. Anyway, last night I was still feeling rough and I had eaten too much, so I asked my wife for a cup of this. I’m one of those bad patients who get sick, never wants to eat again, but then the second I start to feel better I want to eat ALL THE THINGS. When I was a kid, it frustrated my mom to no end. “Mom, I’m starving, can I have tacos?” “Here start with a cracker.” “Moooooom you’re trying to kill me, aren’t you?” LOL. Unfortunately now my mom is in another country and cannot keep me from eating all the things. Oh well, this helped settle my stomach so I could get a full night’s sleep. I think I need to stock up on this ASAP in case it disappears. Of course when I contacted the sushi place that gave me food poisoning, they told me there was no raw fish in my order, so there was no food poisoning. They were incredibly rude about it and I’ll never order from them again.


Ha @ the zombie sympathy (and hey, Moms are rarely wrong) :b


Well, at least they lost some business if they couldn’t even own up to it. :|

aisling of tea

It amazes me how some companies change their tune when told “I will never buy from you again.” (I was just offered a refund if I promise to continue buying from them) Does that really need to be said? If I’m irritated enough to complain, it’s because I’ve reached the end of my rope and unless they come through with good customer service, I won’t be spending money there again. Hell, bad customer service can only cement that for me. Blegh.

Guh. I didn’t think I’d like this, I avoided it due to hibiscus, but…guh. I took a sniff at the store, thank goodness my wife asked to sniff it! Wednesday we brought home 10 grams and today I went back for a tin. It’s fruity and light and I cannot wait to try it iced!

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I was so ready to pass this by but now you’ve got me reconsidering!


Yeah, this smelled a lot better in the store than I was expecting. Only bought it because I want to try everything – haven’t given it a shot yet though!


I think the white hibiscus is different that the hibiscus in other teas. It really give this tea a fruity flavour. I enjoy it a lot. May buy a tin.


Interesting. I know I have a few to give a try to on my next visit.

drank Perfect Pear by DAVIDsTEA

I bought enough of this to cold steep a pot and, well…it was less than perfect. I didn’t like it at all. Ah well, that’s one less tea I’ll need to add to my spreadsheet! It was just…tart and had an aftertaste of gross. Not for me.

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!
