drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA

Day #6 of the advent calendar and I finally get a white tea! This is one of my favourites (I love strawberry flavoured anything) , but I’m really sad it’s been discontinued. I like my fruit blends, but sometimes I just really want a single fruit flavour to deal with, and for me, this one delivers on that. I will be rationing my stash of this, no doubt.

Day #5 of the advent calendar FINALLY gives me a black tea. Yay. And a straight one, at that. This is pretty good – not my favourite straight black tea that DavidsTea makes (possibly due to the slight malty flavour I’m getting out of this), but I definitely will enjoy this cup this morning.

Mmm, lemon! I was happy to have this one show up today (day #4 of the advent calendar!) to kind of counteract two less than stellar teas earlier in the week. Nice and strong, no extra flavours or ingredients. I think I may have steeped this one for too long, but whatever, I’ll deal. I’d imagine I’ll be adding this one to my cold remedy collection as well, as I imagine this would go good with some honey to aid a sore throat.

Not a huge fan of chamomile normally, but this blend isn’t bad – something about the flavour feels a bit off, but as a non-chamomile drinker most of the time, I don’t know exactly what this is missing, haha. This one likely won’t make it back to the re-purchase pile, but again, I’m not unhappy I tried it.

I was on the fence with this one at the start, because I don’t like “regular” eggnog, but since this is December, I figured I’d give this one a go for my advent calendar (day #2!). I like the creaminess that the white chocolate is giving it, and I am all for spicy teas, but I don’t know about the whole addition of meringue powder. Which makes sense, considering this is eggnog, but I think I’ll stick to my eggs and egg products in scrambled form. All in all, though, a great concept, but this is just not the right blend for me. Nevertheless, I’m happy to have satisfied my curiosity.

drank Blue Mountain Twirl by DAVIDsTEA
201 tasting notes

I’m not usually a lover of straight up green tea, but I had to purchase some of this purely on the fact that it comes from India – not the place one tends to think of when they think green tea. It actually tastes pretty good for a green, and I found I don’t need as many leaves to get to the flavour profile that I want. This is also tea #1 for my 2014 tea advent calendar (I made my own this year, whoo!), and so I must say that the month is off to a good start. :)

drank Bubbie's Baklava by DAVIDsTEA

I think this is on par with Sugar Plum Forest as my favourite tea out of the Winter Collection. I do love a good, nutty tea! I was very sad when my cup of this was over, and I think I’m going to have to order some more of it before it goes away. Very nice with a splash of milk.

I’m not usually a fan of drinking blueberry teas first thing in the morning, but this one has enough of a breakfast blend base (at least to me) that I actually don’t mind doing just that. And I enjoy the fact that this is from a smaller company than what I usually buy from. This is my last bag of tea from here, so the next time I’m in Nova Scotia, I’ll clearly have to get a refill.
