I love this tea but it certainly tests my patience when drinking it. I find that initially, when the tea is piping hot, I get a real over abundance of grassy notes from the white base. However, as the tea cools, more of the cherry starts to show up and the tea becomes a lovely fruity, yet floral tea. I think this is a delicate tea which can be really great, but is also super fussy with steep time and optimal drinking temperature.

Love, love, love this tea! It always was a hit with me and my adoration for it has only grown over time. Since it is freezing here again (which I am actually embracing, soon enough I will be whining about the heat down south) it was time to pull out a hot tea. The anise and chocolate paired with a nice, light base tea, really pulled me through my evening visit like nobody’s business. I really need to reach for this tea much more often!

It was crazy hot here today – I am NOT complaining – after that insane winter a little was nice. Hope you get to enjoy some soon. :))

Your in the south of the province right? We are heading south. I have to admit, I am terrified about moving to a larger urban centre, but I sure am looking forward to the weather!

Usually I love this tea and I am uber protective over my small stash of it, but today it was almost a little dusty?I think maybe I didn’t add quite enough sugar, so the chocolate was dusty and dry. Generally though my experience is much more positive and this in one of those teas I faithfully return to. I am sorry that David’s Tea seems to have killed it off, I am not sure where I am going to find a similar substitute when my stash is gone!

drank Winter Blend by Tealish

I have been so behind on logging tea! Long story extremely short, my partner and I are moving cross province in just over a month so I have living arrangements to set, work to find, and a move to organize and, somewhere in there, occasionally find time for a quick cup of tea.

As for this tea, it is as delightful as I remember it being. However, I have paying more attention to brewing times and pulling this tea after a shorter time. I think I actually liked it better with a longer steep. The berry is more subtle with a shorter steep, though it does become much more apparent as the tea cools.

Overall, it was fun to try another cup of this blend, but I think I might need to really play around with the brewing parameters a little more.

Good luck with all the moving arrangements!

I love this tea. I don’t know if there is much more I can say except that, in my world, it verges on perfect.

drank Strawberry Cream by Teavana

Tried this last night at a friends place. I like strawberry, and I was alright with a berry tea, but this is sadly lacking in the promised cream component of the flavour. I was hoping for a bit more muted of a strawberry, softened by some vanilla tinted cream notes. Not so much. Tart, tart, and more tart would be an apt description. Interesting, glad I tried it, not something I would run and reach for again.

I tried this again today to see if my opinion had softened. It certainly isn’t atrocious,in fact I think it is actually a well blended cinnamon tea. I actually don’t mind it as much as long as it is hot, but I can’t get over the cinnamon sweetness when it is cold. Overall, still not for me, but the boy likes it so I will let him play around with it for a while.

I really like this tea. The smell of the leaves is just decadent and totally reminiscent of gooey coconut macaroons we used to make when I was young. Brewed up, the coconut is the dominant flavour, with a nice malty chocolate note backing it up. I found that there is definitely enough rock sugar to lend a sweet note to the tea, but I think I will still toss in a bit of extra sugar in my next cup. I think macaroons are so gooey and decadent, it begs to be super sweet. Overall, I am thrilled this is new to the line up, I think I could become addicted rather quickly!

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Note to self: Though this tea seems like it should mix well with a bit of Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, surprisingly, it does not… I hoped to get Strawberry coffee cake, I apparently managed to create a hot mess. Unfortunate, but lesson learned. Two great teas, but not two teas I would throw together again!
