drank Blue Mountain Twirl by DAVIDsTEA

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.

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA

I had a few of my friends raving over this so I thought I’d give it a try on my last visit to DT. It’s good, but I think my taste buds are tired of apple flavours. I wasn’t as enthusiastic about it as I probably would have been if I hadn’t spent the last few months drinking Sweet Apple Cider and Mom’s Apple Pie. Warm and soothing, yes, but I think I need to back away from apple so that I can learn to appreciate it properly again.

drank Cinnaberry by DAVIDsTEA

I love this one – spicy and sweet all at the same time. I seem to have a thing for cinnamon-heavy teas right now, but as it’s November, I think that is a fine obsession to have, haha. This is an excellent after-dinner tea, though it’s not as sweet as some of your more typical dessert teas.

drank Yes We Cran by DAVIDsTEA

My first foray into the Fall 2014 collection was an excellent one! I like tart teas, and was happy to see that this was organic, as well. This will definitely be coming home with me as soon as I can find room for another tin, hahaha.

Also a pleasant surprise, since I don’t norammly enjoy the taste of root beer. But hey, I’ll try just about any tea once! The taste wasn’t as strong as I feared (which may deter those who do like a good root beer flavour), and I sipped this down quite quickly.

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

This was a pleasant surprise! Sweet, yes, but not overly so, in my opinion. Very light and refreshing, and definitely reminiscent of the typcial cotton candy taste. I almost forget I was drinknig rooibos. Had this is a to go today, and will definitely be back for more!

drank Rooibos Peach by World Tea House

I think I put too many leaves in when I made this earlier today – super strong, super earthy and not as much peach flavour as I wanted. Boo. Or maybe it’s just better as an iced blend, which I’ll have to try soon. That said, I did like the taste, once I got used to it. And I love that this is organic and not mass market. A couple of things I’m trying to get into more. Curse living on an island where shipping isn’t so easy to do!

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA

Tried this one on a bit of a whim – my local DT is running out of fruit-based flavours that I haven’t tried iced, haha. I definitely got the earthy base from this one, and while the peach/papaya flavours were there, they weren’t as strong as I would liked for them to have been. I know that’s kind of the whole point of drinking maté, but still.
