drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA

Day #11 of tea!

Another new one for me! The smell on this one was amazing – I do love a good banana nut bread (though preferably also with chocolate, lol).

My biggest beef with this, unfortunately, is that it is very, very heavy – and there wasn’t enough leaf in my 10g sample for two solid cups (vital, since I share the tea of the days with my mother, and she got to this one first). As a result, my cup was a lot weaker than I had hoped for, and I steeped this for a loooooong time. The flavour was good, but weak.

If I were to get this one again, I’d obviously have to buy more to get it to the strength I want, but I don’t know if it would be worth it for the amount of tea I would get. Pity.

Agreed with your sentiments. It works well as a latte, but of course that’s quite pricey :/

Day #10 of tea!

Hurrah, finally a new one. A plain oolong, at that. I don’t get to have these very often. This one’s good, I have to say. Not my favourite (and I still like plain black teas better), but there’s a bit of a fruity taste with this, which I wasn’t expecting. Of course, it’s limited edition, so I shouldn’t get used to it, haha.

Day #9 of tea!

Keeping my rating for this one as is – it tastes just I remembered, haha.

Day #8 of tea!

I’m upping my rating on this one, because I think I steeped it better this time – I had a much more enjoyable cup!

Day #7 of tea!

Again, another one I’ve had recently, but a tummy one, nonetheless – I find this to be a straight black tea of better than average quality, so it’s perfect for me with some milk. My one thing I noticed this time, is to watch the steep time, as I left this one too long this afternoon!

Day #6 of tea!

I’m not changing my rating on this one, and the only thing I’m going to add is that I steeped this one for longer and with more leaves this time, and I liked the taste much better. :)

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA

Day #5 of tea!

I reviewed this already, but I’m going to do it again, just to be consistent, haha. This is one of the few teas I’ve really got to watch the steep time with, as I have had some bad experiences with pu’erh in that regard before. I steep this for 5-ish minutes, add a splash of milk and mmmm, it’s the perfect treat on a snowy Saturday afternoon. I’ve still got some in my stash, but I may have to pick more up before the winter collection goes away, as it’s one of the few chocolate-based teas I like.

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea

Day #4 of tea!

Finally, a black tea, haha. This one is a classic DT offering I think, and a solid flavoured chai. It isn’t my favourite, and I don’t go gaga over it when it shows up in the fall collection, but I do enjoy a mug of it every now and again . Clearly, since I saved some of my stash to add to the advent calendar.

That’s a fun idea: Adding some of your stash to make your own advent calendar. :)

This is my second year doing it, and I love it! I get to try a bunch of new things and revist some flavours I haven’t had in ages. :)

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA

Day #3 of tea!

Another one I haven’t had in a while. It’s funny, because I think I only put 4 or 5 greens in my advent, and I’ve already had 2 of them, haha. This one is kind of similar to Movie Night, but I think I like this one a shade better. It’s probably the nuts. This is one I think I would repurchase, so when my stash gets alittle lower, this is definitely in contention.

drank Yogi Berry by DAVIDsTEA

Day #2 of tea!

I have had this one exactly once before today, haha. I picked this one because of the strawberry, though there’s quite a lot going on with the taste. Possibly due to the kombucha, which I’m not a huge fan of. I do like the berry taste, but it got weird as it cooled, so if I were to get this one again, I have to remember to keep it hot.
