Another Butiki sipdown :(
This was probably my favourite straight Assam to date. I challenge all you other Assam teas out there to beat it! Lol

Sipdown. I ended up enjoying this one a lot more cold brewed than as a hot cuppa. ThI like stands out a lot more and it isn’t quite as earthy.

drank Gold Rush by DAVIDsTEA

I guess this tea has been discontinued so I decided to drink a cup today. Seriously, what is up with DAVIDsTEA lately? They stopped selling mulberry magic in the local store as well. 2 of my favourites are now gone….

I might be going crazy but the coconut seemed to be tinted green somehow. It has been stored in the foil bag out of heat or light. Weird. If I remember correctly, this bag is from October or November, so it’s not even super old or anything. Anyway, it still tastes amazing. Has this happened to anyone else?

Darn. I really wanted to try that one.

I didn’t get much sleep last night, so this morning I had to reach for something that was familiar, comforting, but strong enough to wake me up. This certainly lived up to the challenge. For some reason, this tea is nostalgic for me but I can’t figure out why because I never really drank tea as a kid or anything. Maybe the caramel vanilla flavour reminds me of a dessert or something. I just can’t put my finger on it. Either way, one of my favourite teas.

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brewed for maybe around 12 hours.

It was peachy and so refreshing! It is a bit artificial but definitely still enjoyable!

drank L'Abricot by Fauchon

This was a very refreshing black tea, the apricot was sweet and not overly artificial. The peach didn’t overwhelm the flavour of it which sometimes happens.

I also cold brewed the leaves which left the flavour pretty subtle but was still enjoyable.

drank Be Fit by Tea Squared

I cold brewed this for about 6 hours.

It is pretty tasty and refreshing. The green base isn’t overpowering or too vegetal which is nice. The mango is sweet but it tastes a little artificial.

drank Caribbean Crush by DAVIDsTEA

I got this as a cup to go of iced tea because I had a coupon! They added just a smidgen of agave sweetener

I got that this is a tropical fruit punch but I found apple and cranberry to be quite prominent. The pineapple is there but the papaya is way in the background. I don’t think I would buy a 50g bag but it was good to try. Good for a free tea!

Thanks for the donation Bitterleaf teas!

Mmmm, this is a delicious smelling tea. The aroma is almost like baking sugar cookies or honey buns.

The flavour is good as well, sweet Yunnan black tea with a thicker mouth feel. The aroma translates fairly well into honey buns but there isn’t really honey notes here—more of just a general sweetness. Lol, does that even make sense?

I actually had time to gongfu brew this today but I used my mini teapot rather than my gaiwan. I always burn my hands when I use it. I need to get an “easy gaiwan” I think. Where is a good place to get those? I saw some really nice ones on teawarehouse.

Subsequent infusions lost a little sweetness but we’re still delicious. The brew also got darker as I steeped in into the afternoon.

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.
