So I’m starting to realize I should probably pair down the teas in my cupboard, so this one will be my first victim. Despite the fact that it is easily my favorite. Teaopia is gone so I won’t be able to refill this one. :(

I drove up to DAVIDS Tea today, set on getting myself one of those 24 days of tea sets. Unfortunately they were all sold out. :\ I’m debating doing an online order but I still haven’t figured out how I get stuff from my landlord.

Are you able to get it delivered at work or to a trusted friend? That might make it easier.

Saryn

That’s an idea… except now the 24 days of tea is sold out on DavidsTea’s website. :\

It’s a real, real shame Teavana won’t be carrying this one.

Went back and bought a tin. Definitely tasting the ‘woodsy’ flavor that was advertised. It’s quite nice.

Cavocorax

Ooh. Can’t wait to try my sample!

Saryn

It’s really nice. I’ve been drinking flavored teas since June, and I think this – which I got as a sample – was the first time I had ‘normal’ tea. I had to go back and get more. XD

This one… well, I wouldn’t rate it as a fave but it’s not bad. I tried it hot at first with my standard milk + sugar and it was okay. I let it cool (got watching a movie – Brave – and largely forgot about my cup!) and had a few sips. It’d probably be better cold, to be honest.

I somehow really enjoyed this one… :)

So I’ve been thinking for awhile that I should make a run up to Davids Tea at Guildford because I accidentally left my pouch of Oh Canada behind when I went home for a week. :( Plus I’d heard about their Winter Collection and wanted to pick up something to try out! So in addition to this tea and 50g of Oh Canada, I picked up Organic Rootbeer Float and a tin of Second Flush Darjeeling since I really liked it!

This tea is quite cloudy when it’s steeping. It’s banana-y without being overpoweringly so. The chocolate isn’t super-bold, but that’s probably because of the white chocolate mellowing things out. I’d have to say I like it!

I don’t eat mushrooms so I don’t really get the woodsy notes from this one… but despite having a box of Tetley in my tea cupboard, this is the first straight tea I’ve had since getting into loose leaf tea in June. It’s a nice, smooth tea that… well, sort of reminds me of Tetley. I think I’ll probably be getting more of this one, since I just bought the $1 sample they had.

I don’t know why, but this one tasted like blueberries to me.

There’s nothing better than having a lazy day off. The only way today could’ve been better was if my boyfriend was here. Unfortunately our relationship is currently long-distance, but hopefully we’ll fix that soon.

Anyway, about the tea; quite nice, actually. There’s a sort of familiar taste to it, but I can’t quite pin it down. This is another smooth one.

I also really like how all these teas seem to be different takes on an Earl Grey.

Stick caramel in a tea and I’ll drink it, and this one is no exception. I like the fruity notes. It tastes very smooth.

Angrboda

I feel the same way about caramel. Vanilla too. :)
