This is just a mini sipdown. I have finished my first bag of this beautiful tea that made me fall in love…..ah….
Good thing that I still have a large bag because I never want to run out of this tea.
Especially with a tiny bit of crystal sugar, it is amazing.

This is amazing iced as well. I made a very large mug to finish off the bag and the rest is chilling in the fridge.

Goodbye for now my faithful friend. I will miss your lovely pumpkin sweetness. With a tiny bit of brown sugar and steeped with some milk, you made a lovely weekend treat!
See you next fall!

This is a bit of a sad sipdown because I really enjoyed this one.
I love coconut, and this was nice and creamy.

This white never fails to be creamy and dreamy. One of my favs for sure. I think I finally have to up this to the 100 rating status because it never lets me down and is always delicious. A little bit of rock sugar really elevates this tea to the next level. LOVE!

It is fricking cold today, so I needed something tropical to take my mind off the cold. This did the trick! I am mostly getting pineapple today.
I think I finally found the sweet spot for steeping parameters of this tea because the base is very finicky and can get astringent very quickly. I used 1.5 tsp of leaf.

drank Chocolate Malt by 52teas

This honeybush is so delicious, I really should have got 2 bags. Of course, there could be more chocolate, but I always say that! I really enjoy the sweet woodsy flavour of the honeybush, and I find that Frank does a really good job with all the honeybushes.
I love this as a latte for dessert!

Backlog from yesterday. I made this western style with about 1.5 tablespoon of leaf. I boiled the water and then let it cool a bit. Even though this is from august 2012, it still tastes fresh. It is so floral and smooth.
I still haven’t tried the autumn variety to compare, but I really enjoy the freshness of the spring oolong.

I am falling out of love with this tea for some reason. Maybe it is just getting too old, but I don’t find myself reaching for it very often. I still have a couple of cups before I give it the boot.

I have the same feeling with mine. I suspect Pistachio Ice Cream to be a tea which needs to be drank quite quickly.

I am treating myself to a tea latte for dessert!
The strawberry still isn’t as “in your face” as I would like, but it is very enjoyable. The milk really tones down the woodsy taste of the honeybush.

I just got mine today. Haven’t tried it yet to see if it holds up.

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.
