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!

Flavors: Cream, Melon

180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec

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.

sigh i miss this one… i just couldn’t bring myself to pick up the reblend since frank has been so “off lately” with reblends


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

This seems like an odd combination of flavours, but for me, it really works. It is like fireworks in your mouth. Sorry guys, I am really not very descriptive tonight and my notes suck.

Flavors: Berries, Flowers, Pine

Quick note to self: pay attention next time you drink this!
I drank this yesterday but had one of those gulp-the-tea don’t get to sit down for a minute kind of days!

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.
