2917 Tasting Notes


Daily eggnog latte and though it was creamy and minty, I found the eggnog drowned out the vanilla flavor that I loved in this tea :(

I had this yesterday while doing a few chores around the house. I sorta drank it mindlessly so I don’t remember much but I do recall thinking this tastes like cashew butter and raspberry jam so that’s good. Next time, I’ll be sure to pay more attention.

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA

I had the last of this as an eggnog latte because why not? As usual it was like a liquid cup of banana bread but the eggnog added a great touch of nutmeg spice that complimented the flavors of the tea. It was a good way to say goodbye. 282.

This plus eggnog sounds like such a winning combination. Man, I miss having Davids within ordering distance of me!


It definitely is nice but luckily you don’t need a David’s to make this. I brewed this up at home!

drank Strawberry by Lupicia

This tea tastes deliciously of strawberry candy sweetness. It is great and is one of the few berry teas I have tried from Lupicia that can actually compete with the super dense base. This is one I would get again for sure.

drank Sweet Seduction by RiverTea

Brewed this up as an eggnog latte and it did not disappoint. The green base remained hidden and let the sweet nougat mix beautifully with the flavors of the eggnog. It was really and truly great and I am so grateful to Christina for sending so much of this my way, especially in light of the RiverTea closure. Thank you Christina!

drank La Vie En Rose by Lupicia

This tastes of rooibos, hibiscus, and a touch of flowers. It has a pretty name but not a pretty taste. Now I know.

My old roommate went to Vancouver to visit our mutual friend over the holiday season and returned with a few teas for me. This is one of the ones she picked up and tonight I used it for my daily eggnog latte and it was great! It tasted like a slice of coconut cream pie with fresh sliced banana on top. Yum!


That sounds fantastic!

Smells like bubblegum. Tastes like bubblegum. Might be bubblegum. Good thing I got it for free because this got tossed out. It just isn’t for me.




Oh dear.

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA

Made this last night as an eggnog latte and I am happy to announce that it was just as good at home as it is in store. And because it wasn’t all broken tea leaves from the bottom of the barrel like the last time I had it, this tasted like the fruity, creamy cup of deliciousness it is meant to be. Yum!

drank Hello Sweetie by Butiki Teas

This was one big cup of eggnog latte deliciousness. The toffee really popped while the coconut and banana added even more creaminess and sweetness to the cup. It was awesome! Then again, how could it not be?


Mmm goodness. Glad I got to sample this one. Yum!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
