I have had this tea for far too long and now it is time to say goodbye.
I did rather enjoy this tea, it is chocolaty and very sweet. It is good as a treat, but certainly not something I would drink everyday.

drank Butterfly Jasmine by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

This tea is not perfumey or overpowering. The jasmine is nice and sweet and delicately floral. The green base is not vegetal. Overall, this tea is very nicely balanced and smooth. I quite enjoy this.
It is a little pricey though.

This is ok as a latte, but plain, I think that the rose maybe overpowers it a little. It is a little artificial tasting as well.
I probably won’t restock this.

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

Sipdown. This week, I need to drink some of my older DavidsTea teas because my tea shelf is exploding with all my Black Friday orders. Oops, I ordered too much tea! lol
Anyway, I did really enjoy this tea. It is mostly peachy with some apricot, nuttiness, and citrus. I will probably re-stock someday, but not until I have waaaaaay less then 200 teas!

I guess all 3 teas that I had today were from Butiki!
Once again, I made a latte for dessert and it was wonderful!
See previous notes.

Now I need to go to bed early and hopefully actually get some sleep tonight for a change.

I added a couple of pieces of rock candy (edit—rock sugar). Wow!! This enhances the sweetness of the cantaloupe and the cream!! I am so glad I ordered more of this tea.

Mm, I needed a little bit of extra sugar today and added a few pieces of rock sugar. Wow, this makes the pumpkin and cinnamon really pop! So delicious

As many of you know, green tea is not a favourite of mine, but as my tea tastes change, I like to try high quality straight greens to see if my tastes have changed.

This tea is really good (in green tea terms!). The first steep is a little too vegetal for my tastes, but the next 2 steeps are much better. I am getting some nutty and buttery notes as well as sweet corn with a touch of cinnamon.

I used 1 tsp of leaf and resteeped for 1.25 and 1.5 minutes

We will see if this 1oz bag can convert me into a green tea lover.

I needed this mate this morning because I didn’t sleep last night. Not sleeping is one of the most frustrating things in the world. Just laying there, trying to read or watch TV, watching the clock……grrr… I can’t even blame the baby because she slept most of the night.

Anyway, this tea was really good this morning. Pineapple is the most prominent note today with that earthy mate base. I hope this gives me the energy to get through the day.

I enjoyed this sample, but I don’t think it would be a staple in my cupboard or anything.

Thank you so much Verdant for including this sample in my Black Friday order!

This is an excellent Tieguanyin. It is so buttery, like the butter that drips off of freshly boiled corn on the cob, with some vegetal and fruity notes. I am also getting a slight nuttiness as well as a slightly sweet note.

I used 2 tsp of leaf and did a quick rinse first.

I only had time for 2 resteeps at 1 and 1.5 minutes. I would have steeped it all day but I went to visit my friend and her new baby. No worries, I will probably order this with my $10 voucher from my Black Friday order.

That got me thinking about my order so I went on the website to scope out the teas I want to order. OH NO……Laoshan Black is out of order! I need more of that beauty of a tea :(

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.
