Tea bath!
I needed this steamy bath today to try to get rid of my cold. It felt SO good!
Epsom salts, tea, baking soda, and lavender essential oil.
Since I am not a fan of lavender teas to drink, I might as well use it in a bath instead. My skin feels so soft and refreshed!

Oooh, I never thought to use this one as a tea bath.

The idea of a tea bath sounds absolutely luxurious. I will have to find a tea to try it out sometime!

Bam woke up this morning with a full blown cold. What the heck???? I still have some taste buds left, so that’s good. I received this as a gift and though it would feel goo on my sore throat. I was right, that licorice really does soothe the throat. And then I had a nap and seemed to help me get to sleep so that’s a plus. The taste is ok. I was mostly drinking this to make me feel better and that is what I am basing this rating on….it did it’s job.

Side note: I am fairly certain I have reviewed this before but my notes seem to have disappeared. Oh well

Aw man, this might be a long day. I poured some water into my steeper but accidentally put it on the coaster sideways so I turned back around to check on it and there was nothing left. So I poured more water in and saved the tea day! Lol. I am a klutz today.
With a little dash of milk, this is a creamy caramel slightly cheesecake tea. I am going to miss this one when I’m done this pouch. If it’s ever reblended, I will definitely consider picking up a pouch!

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
1 tsp

This is also a sipdown from yesterday. I actually really enjoyed this black iced. It is sweet enough that I don’t need sugar and it has a touch of creaminess.
I might even stock this is the summer if it’s still around.

Preparation
Iced

drank Prairie Berry by DAVIDsTEA

Unfortunately I finally finished this pouch, so this is a sipdown.
I really enjoyed this even though the oolong was fairly lost among all the flavouring. Considering that this is the only tea I have had with Saskatoons in it, I liked it for that reason for sure. Mmm, makes me think of Saskatoon pie (which is so delicious).

Preparation
2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Sip down today of this lovely jasmine tea. It tastes natural and not perfumey. It is light and not vegetal.
I think I prefer the pearls from Teavivre for my jasmine fix because they are sweeter and smoother

LOL now that i have more tea experience there are definitely nicer jasmine teas out there, but once in awhile i still like the davids one!

drank Guayusa (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I have been forgetting to log my teas lately :(
I drank this awhile ago. I think this base is too earthy for me. I can drink guayusa but it has to be flavoured I think. I don’t think I would buy more of this unless my tastes change..

drank Perfect Pear by DAVIDsTEA

This is a sip down from last week but I forgot to log it.
I actually enjoyed this tisane and I think I would even purchase more if they brought it back.
The ingredients seem like an odd pairing, but somehow it works as a cold brewed or iced tea.

Preparation
Iced

This is a sip down today.
I have really grown to love these roasty oolongs. This one in particular has really grown on me since the first time I tried it. I will miss the sweet waffle cone notes.

I resteeped at 2 and 3 minutes.

Slide note: this brings my cupboard down to 200 teas but I haven’t logged my new 52 teas or their best sellers sampler. And I have another Verdant order that should be arriving pretty soon!

Flavors: Flowers, Honey

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML
Sil

yay for getting to 200! (well sort of) :)

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.

Location

Saskatchewan, Canada
