Sample sipdown!!
Shoot, I didn’t even put this in my cupboard so I don’t even have the satisfaction of removing it!
Anyway, I added a tiny bit of vanilla creamer. It was delicious.

I had this today to compare to the white peony. Both delicious. Wonderful as a light afternoon tea

Sample sipdown! Thanks again to Angel at Teavivre for this sample. I really enjoy this tea. The nutty and hay notes are most prominent.
I did a comparison to the silver needle and found them very different. My tastes have changed so much. I used to think all white tea tasted the same but now I can definitely tell the difference.

This is a really old sample from Emilie, but it definitely still tastes delicious. I really like this one and I wish that I would have ordered it when it was reblended. Creamy blueberry with a little bit of tang and a subtle baked goods note.
I still have enough for one more cup!

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I know I wish I’d done the same now. I’d definitely pick up a pack. You can put your name on a waiting list for it :)

This week, I have decided that I only going to drink samples! I still have so many samples, and there is more on the way, so I better start sipping them down!
Thankyou to Sophie and Laurent for this free sample!

This is a lovely refreshing citrusy tea. I find that this tea is mosstly just citrus rather than individual citrus fruits, but it is very good.

I have some chilling in the fridge to see how that tastes as well.

drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
987 tasting notes

This is really good and refreshing, I don’t like it hot, but iced, it’s delicious. Mango, citrus, chamomile, and vanilla notes (in that order). I wasn’t expecting to like this one that much, but it is really decent.

I don’t think it is quite as good as Butiki’s version though.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Mmm it’s a pumpkin chai sort of day. A little chilly and overcast. It feels like fall. So I made a pumpkin chai latte with some 2% milk and a tiny bit of brown sugar. It was amazing

I used the recommended amount of 4 tsp and it was a little strong. I think that brewing a shorter time might not make it quite as tart either with all that roselle.

I find that orange and apple are the most prominent with currant in the background. A little too tart. A tsp of sugar helps it out a bit.

I think I will stick with the blueberry fruit tea, I enjoy it much better.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Neapolitan Honeybush by 52teas

Sample sipdown. I am sad to see this one go. I really enjoyed it. Hopefully I can buy this again sometime! I like how you get something different part way through the cup.
I steeped for 8 minutes and the flavours popped more than usual

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.
