my 20th tea!
i remember placing my very first DavidsTea order last summer.
i would clumsily brew this and my other new exotic teas in various cups throughout the kitchen, then let it cool, and gulp it down super quick. i was trying out steeping methods and cup sizes and various utensils and it was all kinda confusing to me at first. ah the beauty of innocence.

ICED. umm actually a bad idea. i won’t ever ice this again. i even had to re-strain it today cuz there was some strange residue in it. it was an experiment. i’ll drink what i have, but i really won’t ice this again.

i think i’m gonna take the sprinkles out of this tea next time i drink it.

seriously, birthday cake tea with 90% less sprinkles is 100% better. and still smells like cake!


Tea is about adventures! You’d never know unless you tried it, and now others can benefit from your experimenting. ;)


I coldbrew this one so the sprinkles don’t melt! :3


I am not a fan of sprinkles in tea. They’re icky. (Actually, I don’t like sprinkles period.)

another sample that i drank as i was learning about tea.
i would just drink whatever.
and enjoy myself and steep things poorly and be confused and just keep drinking.
jumping in. jumping in.

hahaha it’s hilarious the amount of herbal teas with hibiscus in them that i never wrote notes for.

one of the first loose leaf teas i ever bought. (this post is actually from 11 months ago). and it’s amazing i even kept drinking tea to be honest. rostov’s is the worst. there’s never been a single tea of theirs i liked. some i’ve even thrown out. if you ever come to Richmond please heed my warning!

first ingredient – hibiscus.
i was a tea newb and this was a sample.
here is a song about squirrels. kinda.
kinda about squirrels.

“Albini himself commented that this song is about a guy who wants to isolate himself from the world, so he tries to generate electrical power using squirrels. However, his efforts backfire and his life is overcome by these thousands of squirrels and they become the main purpose of his existence, totally defeating the purpose in the end.”

apologies again to my steepster followers but i’m trying to finally make even the TINIEST OF NOTES on the last few teas left in my tealog that had no details added.
i bought this as a sampler and drank it at work. it was before i really understood tea. i was just getting warmed up. it was a baby step. a charming little baby step.

drank All The Raj by DAVIDsTEA

someone on here said that this tea tastes like “rose-scented shampoo and panda licorice” which i found hilarious and i kinda agree. but i also kinda like it! haha! (yum soap)
it’s unique. and since i’ve really started to drink more and more tea, i’m realizing that unique vs delicious is a great way to test your palate and keep things interesting. (especially since i only drink herbal tea)
we’ll see how i feel about it later. i rarely trust my first impression.


ICED! not my favorite of my iced tea experiment. i will probably keep drinking this one hot and leave the iced teas to my others. i mean knowing me i WILL drink it iced again in the future. it’s light and delicate in flavor. refreshing for sure. but not like outta control delicious or anything.
