drank Prince Vladimir by Kusmi Tea

One of my long-awaited mini-tins!

I tried this one first because I know it’s my friend Joyce’s favorite. Or at least it seems to be. I brought it in to work to share with my co-workers. _

I wasn’t sure how much to add or how long to steep since there wasn’t any instructions on the mini-tins. I figured it was the standard 1tsp, 3-4 min of blacks. Wound up steeping a bit longer because it was a busy day! (Also got a few resteeps out of it. Yay!)

The flavor is a nice bergamont-yness with a hint of spice and citrus notes. It was just as good after it’d cooled off as it was hot.

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA

Was not entirely impressed by this one, and I doubt it’ll be on my re-buy list the next time I pop up to DavidsTea. The creaminess (enhanced by my usual sugar + milk, no doubt) was a little too… something. Nothing good. :\

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

Deliciously maple-y. This one would be one of my top picks to curl up with on the couch while reading a good book. Smooth and familiar, like a batch of waffles on a snowy Sunday morning. Totally a tea for Fall.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

Well I tried a tiny bit of this in the bottom of my cup before adding anything… and the face I made is akin to the one I make when I drink V8. Not good.

But adding my usual milk + sugar definitely improved the taste for me. It’s got nice caramel overtones with a slight salty hint at the end, despite the sugar I added. An affordable alternative to my Urban Tea Merchant Caramel.

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

Roommate Stash Raid!

I like the flavor of this one! Sorta reminds me of (oddly enough) those orange slice gummy candies I used to eat all the time. It’s quite nice.

Made this as a pot of tea for my best friend and I, to lure him into the world of loose leaf tea. He loved it, so I bought him a tea starter set and a tin of this one.

Another from the Roommate’s tea stash! This one was quite nice. A smooth mango-y flavor. I added sugar and milk as per usual.

Finally got moved into my new place and – awesomely – my new roommate LOVES tea! So I get to sample from his collection for the next little while!

This one is quite nice and a definite reminder why Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas. The fruitiness is quite nice.
