Caffeine Free Tea Box
I think I’ll keep this one. It seems like everything David’s Tea that I got is meant to be iced. I’m sure this will be much better cold. I wish they chose better apples though, instead of these sour ones.
“Sipdown! Tart and tasty, though it's not quite as good as I remember. Probably won't re-stock this one for a while, as I don't think it's a blend that will be discontinued so I should have nothing...” Read full tasting note

So things are pretty sad right now. I decided to come clean about something that a very close friend / colleague was planning at work and now things are tense as all hell. She tried to convince everyone to come in an hour late on the day before the supervisor was supposed to leave for vacation, and when everybody finally showed up, they would go into the CEO’s office and demand that the supervisor be fired. She wanted to do it on the day before the supervisor left for vacation because she wanted to ruin the poor girl’s vacation. The super hypocritical thing is that she would’ve been on vacation on that day, so no consequences would’ve applied to her for refusing to work. She keeps telling me that the bosses love her and that they promised her a promotion in September. There is something awfully wrong about sucking up to the bosses for a promotion and then going behind their backs to fuck with their company. At least I think so.
The whole ‘revolution’ did not end up happening because some people tried to talk some sense into her, telling her that she can’t just fuck with everyone’s minds and jobs over her own problems with management. But that whole situation kept bothering me and it was a huge weight on my shoulders. I knew it would come out eventually (as all stories in offices usually do) and I didn’t want anyone to say “Well Virginia agreed” or “Well Virginia is just as guilty because she knew and said nothing”. So I did what was right for me and I spoke up. I feel like a total piece of shit about it though. I called my colleague and told her it was me who spoke up, and needless to say she is pissed. But I choose honesty and loyalty to the ones I can trust over friendship with shady people any day.
On top of that, my baby’s father are in the process of seperating. I need to make more money for us so I decided to sell my tea, and my makeup. So now I have problems in the workplace, have become a single mother, and am forced to give up the things I love the most to be able to get through it. I’m pretty intensely down in the dumps. At least the response to my stash sale has been very positive and it’s working, so that’s good.I wish I could get wasted and cry and throw a huge dramatic drunken scene but I have a baby to wake up for so I’m drowning my sorrows in my last few cups of tea. All this to say although I will keep logging on, you probably won’t see tasting notes for a while, since, well, I will have no tea to write about soon lol.
So thank you to everybody who has helped me with my stash sale and I will be living vicariously through everyone’s tasting notes for a while, but I know things will get better and one day I will have a tea cupboard to call my own again.
To anyone who read this whole thing, thanks for caring :P
This tea was light and beautiful. Like a hint of summer on a cold day. As for the taste aspect, I like that it rolled off my tongue and while the flavor was not as potent as I expected it, the overall impression I have from it is positive. Definitely a must have for those that like their tea not to have a so serious attitude. I just had a sampling of it.
Books that will go well with this tea are Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy M. Montgomery, Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit, and Shanghai Girls by Lisa See.
I liked this tea a whole lot when I first had it. Now it’s just.. weird? Dude it’s fault on me though. I like overleaved and understeeped… I think? What the heck is wrong with me. It tastes bitter, but watered down.
I totally didn’t measure it correctly, and I didn’t time it so it’s totally my fault haha
But on the plus side, I managed to convince my parents to a SF trip tomorrow since my dad has the day off and HELLO HONEY DEW. And I’m definitely stopping by DAVIDs and picking up my frequent steeper card :)
I just received this today after waiting a week for my order. I absolutely love the smell of it in the container. Its tart, tangy and tropical smelling. Since I have not brewed this before, I followed the instruction on the label. 2 tsp, 96 degrees, 4-5 minutes. when looking at it 5 minutes in, I actually had to check to make sure the water was hot since it didn’t look like it was doing anything! (I have put cold water in a cup before not realizing it wasn’t hot… being so confused why my tea hadn’t steeped in 4 minutes) 10 minutes later, I have a light pink brew with a sweet/tart/tangy/fruity aroma (exactly like what its like when you open the tin) However, the taste is so light, there are some sips that seem like Im just drinking pink hot water. Im definitely going to try this again, and a couple of different ways, but I don’t know if its something that Im willing to run down the street screaming how lovely it is. It has potential.
