drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this last week as well, and I should have made some notes. But I don’t remember tasting any chocolate.
I thought there was too much going on, and it didn’t taste like a pina-colada. Too much hibiscus as well.

I cold brewed this last week. I should have made some notes about it, because I don’t remember specifics, but this was fruity goodness. It would be good with some Arbor Mist! lol

800th tasting note!!!

For some reason, this tea reminds me of fond memories from my childhood. I can’t quite put my finger on the reason, but either way, it is wonderful!
Of course, the base is perfect, and pairs perfectly with coconut. I am not usually the biggest fan of banana in tea, but here it is delicious.
I really enjoyed this tea, the mellow flavours that aren’t “in your face” but meld together well. This has a relaxing effect, but energizing at the same time.


Woot! 800 is a wholotta notes, congrats :-)


Awesome! Grats on 800!

So, it sounds like I might be in the minority with this tea, because I did not like this as much as everyone else seems to. Or maybe I just did something horribly wrong. Or maybe it is just my dislike of coffee!! lol
Anyway, I definitely got the strawberry and light chocolate, but I wasn’t expecting the coffee flavour to be so strong. But it is possible that it just seems so strong to me. Anyway, with some sugar it turned into a delicious strawberry, coffee cupcake with tiny chocolate sprinkles. Or that is what I am picturing.

I am not rating this for now, so I can make sure that it isn’t user error.

I love coconut, and this tea definitely has some notes of coconut. It is very complex, with notes of vanilla, banana, floral, and a tiny hint of citrus. Rose isn’t my favourite flavour in teas though, so I kind of had that taste in the back of my mind the whole time. I think if I could get this tea without the rose, it would be amazing. I do really enjoy this tea though. I will be tying it chilled tomorrow as well.

drank Strawberry Cream by Zen Tea

I cold brewed this earlier in the week. If I remember correctly, I think I prefer this hot brewed.
It seems that the cream flavour isn’t as pronounced as a cold brew.

The aroma of plum is floating around my kitchen, and it is lovely.
The taste is plum in the forefront, with brandy in the background. The cheesecake is in the aftertaste, but I don’t get that distinct “tang” that cheesecake makes me think of. I get more of a general creaminess.

drank Caramel Apple by Butiki Teas
812 tasting notes

This is delicious, so warming and it tastes like fall.
I am getting more burnt sugar than caramel for some reason, but it is so good. I find the apple to be subtle. In the background, there is floral and pear notes. This is a pretty complex tea with a few different layers.
This order is shaping up to be amazing!!

I cold brewed this for about 8 hours overnight.
This is delicious! This is even better than I was imagining it to be. It is of course lemon, but it is soft and smooth, not sour like lemons usually are. I am definitely getting a bit of nutty, buttery pastry. YUM!
I will also have to try this a hot brew!

I had this chilled in the morning, and it was delicious with some of Butiki’s crystal brown sugar added. Really refreshing on a hot summer day!!

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.
