This is so sweet and floral and lovely! It’s the only mate I can seem to drink of late, I think due to my late night study session mate binges while I was in university. The taste of the leaf itself, naked and without tasty additions to embellish it, just kind of makes me shudder now, even though it was a taste I always enjoyed.

This one, though. This is just pure tasty goodness in a cup. I first tried it iced in store, and I still prefer it this way over hot. once cooled, the mate flavour is less distinguishable, and instead all I taste is a delicious floral honey. The scent is so strong that it refuses to stop lingering in my davids iced tea mug, despite several washings and reuses.

This mate has got me wondering about the other mate blends that davids carries, and whether I’d like them. I think I’ll have to give them a try.

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
