drank Cream by The Tea Haus

I had this yesterday and I had the same experience as I had with the blueberry tea. This is really good…until the black base steps in. Sad. It’s really good quality tea, and it is certainly creamy, but it’s just a touch too astringent for me. I’m going to give it another go, but if it doesn’t wow me, it’ll be up for swap.

drank Blueberry by The Tea Haus

I’m on the fence about this one. At first, it’s like “OMGYES BLUEBERRY” but then the black tea steps in and it’s a bit bitter for my tastes. Maybe a drop or two of milk will help. I dunno. Sadness.

This is lovely. So lovely. My wife came home raving about it yesterday and since I’m in the mood for a lighter tea, I reached for it. Oh my goodness this is light and lemony and sweet and appley and guh. So much yum. I can’t wait to try it iced! It’s kinda like apple juice without that sickening sweetness. Restock for sure.

Nom. I love this tea, but I’m not going to rate it because I sweetened it with a touch of Irish Creme agave. It’s sweet and creamy and has that touch of toasty caramel I so love. I need to try this one without the agave, though. This might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship, though.

Had a cuppa yesterday morning to try and wake up before work and because I was making a cup for Tina, so I may as well indulge.

I love this tea so much. Seriously, if you like matcha, try this one. It’s beyond amazing.

This is my jug o iced tea for the moment. I love this stuff. I made it too weak, next time I’ll add more leaf, but it is still delicious and everything I want in an iced tea. Blue slushie! Yum!

I had a cup of this last night when my wife was finally returned to me! It needed a touch more sugar, but when I added a few drops of raspberry agave nectar, I could really start to taste the berry. I will have to try this one again before I rate, but I did enjoy what I had!

drank Raspberry Royale by Bigelow
1220 tasting notes

I have got to find a supplier for this tea, I can’t seem to find it or Bigelow French Vanilla anywhere! Maybe I should have my mom have a look in the States for me and just drop some in the next package she sends. I just can’t justify purchasing a bagged tea online XD. But I had this at Panera yesterday (I had a bag in my purse) and it was delicious. Just what I wanted.

drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA

Blegh. Still not impressed. I had this iced yesterday and at the first sip, I was like “wow! This is great!” But the time I was halfway through the cup, I really just didn’t want to finish it. It was sickeningly sweet, the rooibos got to me. shrugs It just wasn’t impressive to me. Not one I will stock up on.

And, for the record, I didn’t get any jelly beans in this cup, either.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA

Thursday’s thermos of tea for the day. Yum. I had forgotten how juicy and fruity this little beauty is. It was no hardship at all to drink the 1.5 L of this. It did give me a bit of a boost, and while I didn’t feel overly jittery like I sometimes do with matcha, it kept me going on a painfully long day.

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!
