drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA

After a long hiatus from tea, I thought I would revisit some old favourites that I hadn’t had in awhile. It has been interesting to see how much my tastes have changed. I was initially very leery about trying this tea, popcorn in tea…what the heck. But now, I will pretty much try anything!

I am not usually the biggest fan of green tea (unless it is jasmine), but I like the occasional flavoured green tea. This is probably one of my favourite ones. It is mostly caramel popcorn with a hint of Apple. The green tea is in the background vaguely, and it is not too vegetal.

I used to brew this at a much higher temp, I wonder if DAVIDsTEA has decreased their parameters on this one?

I thought the flavours were a bit weak, so next time I will try a longer steep.

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

As I drink more tea from varying companies, I am beginning to enjoy straight tea more and more. Thankyou Butiki, Teavivre, and Verdant!! Now that I know what high quality teas taste like, I enjoy that tea flavour rather than artificial flavours that cover up the actual tea flavour. I still drink a lot of flavoured teas, but they are becoming teas that have natural flavours more and more.

This tea does have artificial flavourings, and does taste a bit artificial. It is enjoyable though. However, it no longer deserves a rating of 91.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

This is pretty good, but it is a touch artificial. It makes a good latte

drank Spiced Pumpkin by DAVIDsTEA

Pumpkin is a flavour I really enjoy in the fall, so of course I wanted to try this one. honeybush is something that I really enjoy as well and I didn’t even know that it was honeybush until today when I went to brew it. Bonus!
I enjoy this tea, it is sweet pumpkin with some cinnamon spice. I didn’t get any creaminess though. I brewed this in a tea bag though, so maybe I lost the creaminess in the tea bag. Next time, I will just have to use my perfect mug to see if that helps.

Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

drank Gold Rush by DAVIDsTEA

Even though there isn’t much actual tea in here, I really enjoy this. It is caramel sweet, but not too sweet. I seem to really enjoy coconut in teas, especially white tea. The white tea certainly gets lost amongst all the other ingredients, but it’s ok if I think of it more as a herbal than a white tea. The mulberries taste good if you eat them as well!

Sipdown. This was a fairly decent tisane but there are other rooibos teas from DAVIDsTEA that are better.

I have had this a few days this week. I also experimented with adding a tiny bit of Epicure vanilla bean sugar, and it is so good with this addition. It is also spectacular with the brown crystal sugar that Butiki used to sell. And of course, it is delicious bare as well. I love this tea

drank Amaretto by Steeped Tea

I found the papaya for some reason to take over this tisane for some reason. The nuttiness is there, but in the background for me. I see where they are going to get toward the amaretto flavour, but it’s not quite there.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
987 tasting notes

Thid tea is best with a splash of milk. I always give this tea a quick rinse too to cut down on some of the fishy pu’erh taste. This was pretty good today, maybe the orange was a little more prevalent than I remember. Who knows though, it could have been just that particular scoop full of tea.

Nope, too much licorice. It just overwhelms the whole cup

Agreed. So gross.

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.

Saskatchewan, Canada
