I’m so glad it’s finally cool enough to start my mornings with a cuppa, and this has been a longtime favorite. It wakes me up without making me jittery. I really, really love this blend.

Oh my God this is my happy place after a stressful day at work. It’s finally cold enough to drink hot tea again so I celebrated with this beauty. Love, love, love this blend. Love it.

drank Red Velvet Cake by DAVIDsTEA
1320 tasting notes

When I found myself with a bit of free time after work, of course I wandered over to Davids to get this little beauty. I got a cup to go and as soon as we got home, I also made De make a pot for us to share. It’s so, so good, but a little weak. Both the in-store cup and the pot made at home were weak when steeped with our usual parameters, so you might want to give a bit of extra time. Still, it is delicious!

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

I found it weak as well! I’ll keep it in mind when I bring some home to steep the heck out of it haha

This tea is…painfully refreshing. It’s just floral enough to just be really…refreshing. Maybe I need to try more rose teas. I really really like this. I don’t think we’ll be getting a tin, but I definitely plan to get a bit more. Iced this is lovely, but I don’t think I’d like it hot.

Preparation
Iced

This is so good. I had to try it after my first sniff! I have to say, I’m not getting much toasted marshmallow from the flavor, but that’s okay because I’m in love anyway! Because while the name might be toasted marshmallow, this is the eggnog tea I’ve been searching for! It’s creamy and spicy and utterly beautiful. Definitely getting a tin and putting it next to the Santa’s Secret for the holidays.

Canot wait to get me order of this!!

ooh, this sounds so good. I’m a little iffy about gelatin, but I might have to get some…

Hmm, yeah I can see the eggnog factor. I agree it isn’t marshmallow, which made me sad.

DaisyChubb

oo eggnog – I can see that with the allspice. Although I haven’t tasted it yet so I should probably just shut my mouf until I do :D

drank Bravissimo by DAVIDsTEA
1320 tasting notes

Love this one. Always have, always will. It saved my life at work when I would start to lose my voice, and it kept me going when all I wanted to do was curl up in the corner and nap. I have been painfully sick and I’m finally on the mend, though working 11 hour days hasn’t helped much. But Bravissimo kept me talking and for that I am eternally grateful. I have a tin of DavidsTea’s Throat Soother, but I’ll choose Bravissimo over that every time.

What a little lifesaver! At my job, there’s really no such thing as a sick day. If you can’t make it to a shift, you have to find someone to cover you. If you can’t, you have to come in. So I sliced off hours where I could (only weeks after asking for more hours, go me!), but there was no real chance for me to just rest at home for a few days. So every morning I made three travel mugs of hot tea. Cold 911, Bravissimo, and usually Detox with the occasional Santa’s Secret thrown in. This tea saved my life and kept the cough away long enough for me to do my job.

This tasted vaguely minty, but that was probably the fault of my travel mug. Still, yum. Apparently I was just in a berry mood as I made my iced teas this week, and it has worked out well for me. I prefer DavidsTea’s Blueberry Jam, but this is not a tea to be missed if you can help it!

After a two week long fight with knock-me-on-my-butt flu, I finally felt good enough to return to my iced teas. Two solid weeks of drinking nothing but Cold 911 and Bravissimo will do that to a girl. Wonderful teas, but boring after too much of them. When facing my empty cold steeping pot, this was the only tea I could think of and so it was the first tea I made and I am so glad I did, it is delicious. I have love in my heart for this beauty, nothing else really compares!

I used the last of my stash of this to make a pot of cold steeped tea and holy cow is it ever tart. Not necessarily in a bad way, but the first sip did make my lips pucker. Still, it’s darn tasty and if I ever put together an order for Teavivre, this is definitely going in there. I love the blueberryness of it!

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!
