drank Pom Power by DAVIDsTEA
1471 tasting notes

Hmmm…this tea is only meh for me. It’s light and refreshing and kind of juicy, but it’s not knocking me off of my feet.

To be fair, I only gave it 30 seconds steep time, but I’ve never found that to be an issue with other white teas. I don’t know.

Let’s put it this way. I’ve been known to go through a two liter jug of tea in a day. I poured myself a cup of Pom Power this morning and it’s now 9:30 at night and I’ve only drank half of the cup. It’s just…meh.

My stomach has been loudly protesting the amount of fast food we’ve been eating over the last two weeks, so a big cup of this was definitely in order last night. Ah, it’s good to be back in a place where I don’t feel weird about making as much tea as I want!

Indigobloom

I always wondered, how does this one taste?? I find that mothers helper, cold 911… they all taste more or less the same to me! (this coming from someone who is finicky about ginger, licorice, and fennel! ha)

Daddyselephant

It’s sweet because of the stevia, but I don’t think it tastes at all like mother’s helper or cold 911. You should just come over for a tea party sometime!

Indigobloom

omg that would be so much fun!!! so many teas to show you :)

Daddyselephant

Ditto! We should definitely make plans to do so!

Indigobloom

Fo’ sure!! let me know when is good for you— I’m studying for an exam on Oct 1 so my schedule is a bit off :(

Daddyselephant

You know I’ve got nothing to do XD. Ah, the glamorous life of the unemployed >.>. Do you want to get together shortly after October 1st to celebrate? I’ll cook!

Indigobloom

ooooh, the prospect of you cooking is making me hungry! Yesss that sounds amazing. Being giddy about something months away is so unfair lol
—but I must pass this exam… if I ever hope to practice HR with a designation!

Daddyselephant

Why don’t we make plans for October 2nd? It’s a Sunday, so even if De has to work, she’ll be off by 5. And if I’m working (please God), well, this gives me enough time to make sure I’ve got the day off! Of course, we could always do it earlier too, suddenly October seems forever away XD

Indigobloom

erm, I’ll be at Nuit Blanche on the 1st after my exam. Have you been yet? it’s SO much fun… but i doubt I’ll be in any condition to go out the next day, as it runs until 7am!! (I haven’t made it that long for a few years now). You should come with! :)
—Once I really get into the studying, I’ll let you know what my schedule is like, I plan to start my routine this coming Sunday after my besties wedding…

Daddyselephant

Oooooh, maybe! Okies, just let me know and we can start planning!

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
1471 tasting notes

Mmmmmmm. Returned from our trip at 7:30 this morning, and after two days of travel and three restless nights, I desperately needed a pick me up while we were running errands today. My brother and I were discussing Jungle Ju Ju, and it was exactly what I was craving. Yum! Light and fruity, it gave me just enough energy to get through my day.

In other news, my delightful brother (who I’m sure will show up on here sometime soon) recently got engaged, so for an engagement gift, I took him a bag of 20 or so teas and a DavidsTea logo mug (his name is David). We gave it to them last night. By this morning they had put together a big order online with DavidsTea! XD. I created a monster!

Indigobloom

LOL I’m looking forward to “meeting” your brother! :P

Daddyselephant

Oh, with his new tea addiction, it’s only a matter of time .

MaddHatter

It is far too easy to create a DAVIDs monster! I have created 5 of them! lol, well done!

Gah, this morning. So my wife and I couldn’t fall asleep until 2:30 am or so after we were stood up at Waffle House last night. I woke up this morning and glanced at the digital clock, which read 9:49, and leapt out of bed in a panic. I had a phone interview with DavidsTea at 10…yikes! So I raced to my Dad’s office and set up, pulling up my resume, finding a phone, etc. And then I glanced at my computer’s clock. 6:43. groan I tried to stay up, but around 7:30 I tumbled back into bed to get another hour of sleep. When I woke again, I made a cup of this to soothe my nerves and wake me up, and it worked beautifully. I love the flavor of this tea, the chocolate and the almonds make it wonderfully creamy, and while I don’t get raspberry, I do get banana like so many others. Which is just fine by me, seeing as how I love raspberries, but cannot stand chocolate with them.

I don’t want to jinx anything, but I feel like the interview went really, really well. I’ll know by Friday…cross your fingers, toes, and eyes for me, Steepsterites!

Will do, that is SUPER exciting!! I also hate when I read the clock wrong….worse when read wrong on a day off/weekend!!!

Daddyselephant

Oh gosh yes. And, I mean, the adrenaline from the pure panic I felt when I glanced at the clock had me jittery for a while lol.

Uniquity

Yay! I hope it goes your way…I definitely wouldn’t mind working there, though I think my paycheque would be devoted largely to tea.

DaisyChubb

Oh my gosh, best of luck and sending tons of good energy your way :D

Daddyselephant

De’s paycheck is already largely devoted to tea XD. Thanks for all the good vibes, y’all!

Jessie

Ooh, good luck! I’ve been thinking about applying to one of the positions. It’s hard: I like my current job, but I also like free tea!

Daddyselephant

Thanks! It’s very much my dream job!

MoonShyne

Ok it’s been a long time since this was posted..but I gotta know! Did you get the job?? I hope so! I would love to work there and it would sure cut the ole tea bill down lol. But I would drink my self stupid there..

Daddyselephant

yeah, unfortunately I did not. Sadness. But I ended up finding another job…and now I’ve left that one and am happily spending my time as a housewife!

My wife and I managed to get food poisoning while “hanging out” with friends. This tea saved our lives. The end .

Jessie

Yikes! I hope you’re both feeling better.

Waffle Hooooouse. It’s always freezing in there, so I got a cuppa tea with my delicious, greasy food. It wasn’t horrible, just your standard bagged orange pekoe. Definitely hit the spot last night, even if I did have to use twice the amount of sugar. I will be reaching for my DavidsTea Orange Pekoe this morning, though.

Now I miss my kitty. (A ginger named Pekoe .)

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1471 tasting notes

Still love this one. Spent Thursday night erm “hanging out” with a friend from college and did the same thing tonight. Pair that with all of the deliciously terrible for you food we’ve been eating, and my body is about to go on strike. So yesterday I spent rehydrating with vitamin water and powerade, but when the “hanging out” started, I had a cup of detox by my side. It was an experiment to see if it would help…it didn’t. I’m ready to get home and curl up with a big mug of this and sip my hangover away.

Profile

Bio

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.
