drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

Another white tea I enjoy.
This is creamy lemon mostly with slight hints of coconut and ginger.
The white tea notes are present, but only slightly in the background.
Resteep at 5 minutes

This is best as an iced tea for sure! The creaminess and the coconut are a little more pronounced.

195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 0 sec

Backlog…..from 2 weeks ago.
Personal note—I have been sick for the last 2 weeks with really bad acid reflux and couldn’t drink any tea :( But, now I am back, having tea in small moderate amounts.

Thank you to Lala for this tea in our swap!

As the name mentions, this tea is very minty. However, I am not getting much spice, but that is completely fine by me. This is a delicious oolong.

Geez, I’m glad you’re doing a little better, at least. That sounds awful.

drank Earl of Anxi by Verdant Tea
818 tasting notes

Thank you Lala for this tea!!
I used 1Tblsp for this cuppa.
This reminds me of Earl Grey Oolong by DAVIDsTEA but this is much higher quality and taste. It is buttery oolong foremost with citrus that isn’t quite earl grey because of the fruitiness from the goji berries. Floral notes hide in the background and slowly make their way forward.
I have no idea what saffron or frankincense tastes like so I can’t really comment on them.
I resteeped for 3 minutes and I found it tastes pretty much the same with a little more floral coming out.

drank Neapolitan Honeybush by 52teas

One more cuppa left in this sample. I really like this honeybush blend. I think honeybush is probably my fav non-caffeine base.
I still really enjoy this one and I think I should order it if I ever get a chance. I like how each sip brings a different note! Yum

Mmmm…honeybush is my favorite non-caffeine base too!

Sample sipdown, but then I just realized that I also have a bag of this.

Iced, this is very good. I made it the real icing method with making it double strength and adding ice to it. The grape flavour comes out better iced than hot for sure. Still enjoying this one.

Sample sipdown! This is a really old sample from Amanda (who I don’t think is active anymore).
This is delicious, slightly sweet and smooth with just a touch of strawberry hiding in the background

Iced, I think its even better. It is a little sweeter. I have this as an SBT version, so I will have to try that sometime too.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 30 sec

The SBT of this is AMAZING! Best iced tea I’ve ever had, hands down. Ugh, it’s so good I can hardly stand it. I may have ordered like a dozen of them awhile back…
You should definitely try yours asap!

I received this tea as a sample a year ago but it still tastes delicious.
I really like this tea. White chocolate, vanilla, and spearmint meld really well together, especially with a honeybush base. I need to get more honeybush blends because I really enjoy them
I don’t usually make additions, but I felt like I deserved a treat today. Hey, it’s Saturday right! The creamer made this super delicious

drank Butterbeer by 52teas
818 tasting notes

Sample sipdown! I got this sample from Amanda a year ago but this tea still tastes awesome. I regret not ordering some of this. It’s smooth and root beer with very light buttery notes. I added a tiny bit of milk and it really ramped it up!
Cold, this is really good as well

I am the first to review this! The dry leaves are fuzzy, long, and beautiful.

This is a very light tasting tea. I am getting mostly hay and honey notes with some slight nutty notes. The mouthfeel is smooth, and almost seems silkier in the resteep. This is a nice white tea, it would be good for those days that I want something light and unflavoured. It seems that I am craving straight teas more and more as I taste higher quailty teas.

Resteeped for 4.5 minutes

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 0 sec

drank Citrus Dream by Butiki Teas
818 tasting notes

I had this last night and it was so relaxing. It is prominently chamomile of course, but there are slight fruity notes that come through in the end. I didn’t really get any floral notes, but that’s ok. Very nice for the evening. Not my favourite tea but probably one I will keep on hand.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

This one makes me sleep lol

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.
