Mmm, I wanted chocolate for breakfast this morning but I don’t have any chocolate in the house……lol and I shouldn’t actually have chocolate in the morning anyway. This tea did the trick!

drank Holiday Blend by Mighty Leaf Tea

The last remaining sample from my swap with Evol Ving Ness, thanks again, it was fun!

I enjoyed this fruity chai and I can see why it is called holiday blend. It would make a delicious latte during the Christmas season on a cold day wrapped up in a warm blanket. Maybe not my favourite during the spring/summer months but still good!

Thanks to Evol Ving Ness for the sample!
I do enjoy this nutty oolong. Nothing new to report, see previous notes!

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA

I’m glad that this returned because I enjoy this a a cold brew. The pieces of fruit are pretty large in here so it’s a little hard to measure and probably contributed to my strong brew. 50g probably isn’t going to last very long.

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

This was fruity but I wasn’t able to pick out the specific fruit until I read the description here. It tasted fairly natural though and not too sweet. Very enjoyable. I will ice or cold brew it next time

This has been my favourite flavoured black tea to date. I will miss the smoothness. It was a delicious tea (especially when it was fresh).


So many Butiki sipdowns! Noooo


All my Butiki are gone, which is the saddest thing :( I loved this one, too.


I know!! I have to sip them down though because they are aging (gracefully)

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 really enjoyed this tea, especially as a cold brew.
Nothing new to report !

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?

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.
