1220 Tasting Notes

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
1220 tasting notes

This is another tea that got stuck in the fridge for three days while I battled food poisoning, and it survived as well! It’s reminding me why I fell in love with this tea in the first place. It’s warm and apple-y and for me, it’s more like an apple pasty instead of a pie. Small difference, I know, but a pasty is fried and it had that flaky, buttery richness in it. Even cold, this is a warm delight. This tea is three years old and hence in my sipdown pile, but I am sad to have it there.

drank Celebration by RiverTea

This sat in the fridge, brewing, for three days while I recovered from food poisoning, and I’m happy to say it is none the worse for the abuse! It’s light and fruity and refreshing, reminding me that I greatly enjoy bamboo teas. Since our condo is a never-ending heat sink, anything that cools me off like this has is a major positive.

It sounds like the name of this tea is quite appropriate!

I’ve had food poisoning for the last day or so (again. Of course, again. Jeebus), so I haven’t had the energy to deal with the teas I have coldbrewing in my fridge. But when we were on our way to Mississauga to put in an appearance at a family member’s birthday party, we stopped off at a 7-11 and I picked up two of these. I LOVE THESE and every time I see them, I pick up a few. So good. It doesn’t have that sour, artificial tea flavor and I’m telling you, I had one before bed last night and I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I wonder if I could replicate it at home…

It seems like you’ve been having a lot of food/gastro issues lately. I hope you get better.

Gastro issues are my life, unfortunately. For instance, I have lactose issues, but earlier this week while eating tofu, I discovered that soy does my body no favors either. Meh, life goes on and so do I :)

The second day in a row having this tea and I’m willing to confirm that it is literally making me ill. Blegh. The only other thing I’ve had today was rice and I don’t think it is the cause of my nausea.

Sadness. But it’s a sipdown (319/301), so YAY

Nooooo! That’s not right! Scott’s supposed to be annoying yet endearing. :|
Sorry it was a total fail for you.

At least I got a cool tin out of it!!

Cavocorax

Yeah, that’s pretty sweet! Have you figured out what you’re going to do with all your tins? I have no idea with mine… (I can’t remember if I’ve asked you already – sorry)

Coldbrew Sipdown (320/302)

Wallace is better than Scott, but we knew that. I still really, really don’t understand the combination of passionfruit and chocolate chip. It’s kinda stomach-turning, but it’s still way better than Scott’s bitterness.

Ewww, yeah that sounds like a bad combo.

Yeah, no, this is just as bitter coldbrewed as it was hot. This will be a sipdown tomorrow and I’m happy to see it go. I get some caramel and some peach, but overall it’s just a bitter mess.

I coldbrewed this little beauty and it turned out so good! Maybe I was wrong about no longer liking rooibos, maybe I’ve just needed to drink a good rooibos.

It smells like cough syrup but tastes like berries. Love.

I love this one. I will definitely restock, but not in a tin. Just a 50 g bag. But it is wonderful.

Coldbrew Sipdown (317/299)

I really enjoyed this blend while it lasted, but hoarding it only lets it go stale. So I made up the last of this and drank it down happily. Goodbye old friend.

Coldbrew Sipdown (318/300)

Yay!! We’re down to 300 teas. But I’m sad to see it go. It takes me back to my childhood in Michigan where my mom had a grapevine and in the summer we’d have tons of grapes and grape juice and wonderfulness. I love this tea, but it was time for it to leave us…goodbye, beloved tea!!!

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!
