Yum. This is so good, even without additions. It is silky and malty and wonderful. Why didn’t I order more of this?

This tea was delicious sans additions this morning. Nice and simple, but the pumpkin was almost too subtle.
I made a Butiki order today and would have ordered more of this, but I now have tonnes of pumpkin milkshake. But maybe I need both! Comparison coming soon!

This tea was exceptional today because I got a large pineapple chunk in my scoop. I might have overleafed a bit as well because the pineapple chunk was so large. I also added a little rock sugar which added the perfect amount of sweetness. So delicious. Good thing I still have quite a bit of this because I would never want to run out of it

drank Spiced Fig by DAVIDsTEA

Nope, I don’t like this. It tastes like very bad fruitcake, and I am not really a fan of fruitcake

Aimee Popovacki

Agree. They have had much better fig blends in the past.

And way too expensive because it is really heavy

Aimee Popovacki

yeah! because of that, i’ve only gotten to go cups of it.. it kind of reminds me of the banana nut bread one from the fall last year… it was so heavy too!

Thank you Angel at Teavivre for this sample! My last selection from this bunch of samples.
This is a lovely, floral, green oolong with a hint if creaminess. There is a sweet aftertaste which I am fond of. Overall, very enjoyable
3 tsp of leaf, boiling water, 1 minute
I didn’t get around to a resteep unfortunately

I did enjoy this tea. However, it did not enjoy the oil it left in the surface. It was super minty but I think I let it steep too long. Next time, I will have to use a tea bag I guess
I find it is a bit similar to coco mint cream

drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
1092 tasting notes

To me, this tastes a little bit more like molasses than gingerbread. I did really enjoy this tea. The rooibos base was a good choice with the honeybush. Certainly not a permanent staple, but I would maybe buy more

I haven’t tried this one yet. Maybe next time I pop into Davidstea, I’ll get a cup.

Aimee Popovacki

I do like this one, i think the best of their winter collection.. its between this and coffee cake.. i find coffee cake a little sweet though so i don’t like it as much

drank Choconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1092 tasting notes

This is kind of an of tea. The licorice was an odd addition. I am not really getting any oolong notes and the hazelnut is pretty hidden as well. However, as a chocolate licorice tea, it is fairly good.
95 degrees for 4 minutes
I am not sure how to rate this quite yet

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.
