drank Phoenix Pearl by Zen Tea
1120 tasting notes

I couldn’t pass up the sale that they had awhile ago. In the cart this went!
The leaf is not quite “pearl like”, but more like “snails” IMO.
The taste is slightly sweet with lots of malty, cocoa notes. Delicious.

I only steeped once because after my morning tea, I ate a whole bunch of Easter chocolate (I bought a bunch on sale on Monday….bad girl, I didn’t NEED that chocolate). Too much caffeine today to have another cuppa. But next time, I will definitely resteep.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Coconut Cream Pie by Butiki Teas

I decided to cold brew this since I haven’t been having much hot tea lately. I am not sure why I hadn’t tried this before because this was awesome cold brewed!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown until they bring it back in the fall. I finished this off as a latte with a smidgen of real maple syrup. Delicious as usual.

drank Pistachio Ice Cream by DAVIDsTEA

This was a fairly decent tea, it tastes like pistachio (lol, obviously right). It isn’t quite as creamy as I was hoping though and there isn’t that much black tea in here.
Overall, it is a decent tea.

drank Monk's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

I got this as a sample with my recent order. I am not sure what happened but the sample is a little crushed even though the package seemed to be packaged fairly well. In any case, I find this to be kind of an odd combination and it seemed to be more astringent than I was expecting. Maybe I will pick up a little to see if I can brew it again. I used the whole sample pack up already

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this sample from my recent DT order. It was pretty good. It has a bit of that artificial peachy flavour that a lot of DT blends have but it was pretty good. I find that it is fairly similar to mango madness which I already have so I likely won’t be purchasing any of this.

Plunkybug

Agreed. It is good but then gets this weird artificial thing which puts me off of it.

Kristal

This one wasn’t for me either.

I guess we can’t love every tea!

I really enjoyed this tea. This is a pretty combination so I will find a replacement someday.

drank Grape Oolong by Butiki Teas

Sipdown.
I ended up enjoying this tea a lot more than I thought I would. It was light and not too vegetal. The grape tasted fairly natural. It also resteeped well.

drank Passion by Tazo

This is ok as a cold brew but the hibiscus is a little too strong for my liking. It is drinkable but I won’t be purchasing more

drank Honey Fig Tree by Tea Squared
1120 tasting notes

I was browsing through Sobeys when I saw that they had a bunch of tea on sale. $8 for 80g…sure I’ll try it. I bought this fully expecting that it wouldn’t be on Steepster. So I was surprised to see it here!

I was pleasantly surprised twitch this blend. I saw that there was roses in it, so I picked most of those out. The fig is something I have never seen in a fruit tisane before. I enjoyed it as a cold brew and I found the hibiscus wasn’t too overpowering here. It was sweet enough with no added sweetener. Not too bad!

Now I will have to cold brew the other tea I bought from Tea Squared—a flavoured green.

Evol Ving Ness

The name alone is intoxicating.

tigress_al

It certainly caught my eye

Roswell Strange

Glad you liked this one! I really enjoy both this one and Cranberry Purifier, and Sobeys carries pretty close to the whole line up of Tea Squared loose teas (depending on which one you’re shopping at).

Evol Ving Ness

Here Sobey’s also carries a good selection of teas. I will have to look for this brand to see if they have it.

tigress_al

I will look for the Cranberry Purifier next time!

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
