drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA

I remembered from last time that I brewed this to use a tea bag, otherwise the infuser gets too oily and gross. This was ok tonight, sweet enough for me to enjoy.
Actually, I can’t believe that I still have this, it is getting old. It is really getting time to do some serious sipdowns. Now, if only I could stop ordering more tea for awhile so I could drink up some older teas!

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas

Hmm….I wasn’t expecting so many black teas in this box, I thought there would be more variety. There has only been one honeybush, and all the rest have been blacks. Oh well, I am liking the surprise of scratching the bag to find out what the tea of the day is!

I didn’t expect this tea to have such large candy corn candies. I don’t mind candy corn, but I don’t think that I would go out of my way to find it or anything. This tea though, is pretty good. It is sweet and fun. Too bad I didn’t have this on Halloween. I don’t think I would order a bag though.

drank Butter Rum by 52teas

Backlog from yesterday
This tea is quite enjoyable, I like the addition of the vanilla to add that smoothness. It does taste like rum candy, but not that sweet. As much as I did enjoy this tea, I think I enjoy DavidsTea version of the Buttered Rum better.

drank White Rhino by Butiki Teas
1154 tasting notes

Oh boy, this tea puts my cupboard at over 200 teas, and I haven’t even added all the teas from my Butiki order, and none from my Verdant order! NO NEW ORDERS for a long time…….I hope.

Backlog from yesterday. This tea is delicious. I get how it has some similar notes to black tea. I really enjoy the malty, fruity, sweet notes of caramel that I get from this tea. I was a little scared to use boiling water, but it definitely does the trick.
The resteep was also enjoyable.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Vanilla Cream by Butiki Teas

Brewed strong as an eggnog latte treat, because I deserve it after a frustrating week. My baby has just not been herself all week. But she was back to her happy self today! Here’s hoping she stays that way!

Anyway, the tea was super delicious tonight!

I re-stocked this tea before I even took it out of my “cupboard”! I guess I forgot when I sipped down my last bit awhile ago. Oh well, I will likely always have this in my cupboard anyway.
It tastes a little less caramel than usual today for some reason. But still so comforting on a cold winters day.

drank Weeping Angel Tea by 52teas

This is just an ok tea for me. I definitely get toffee flavour and I can see where the popcorn is going. But, it is almost a little too salty. Next time, I will have to add some sweetener and see where that takes the flavour.

I was really hoping that this tea would be in this box! I wasn’t sure that I would like it enough to order a whole bag. Well, I totally would!
This is peanut butter for sure with very light notes of chocolate and cheesecake. It is not sickly sweet or anything, but still sweet enough for my dessert craving!

This was delicious, the Irish cream is very light but it is nice. I didn’t get too much in the cheesecake department, but I haven’t tried it with sweetener yet, so I have a feeling that sweetener will bring out that cheesecake a little more.
Once again, another delicious black!

Butiki Teas

The cheesecake flavor is an aggressive one, so we went light on it and focused more on the Irish Cream. A little bit of brown sugar will definitely enhance the cheesecake flavor.

drank French Toast by 52teas
1154 tasting notes

Mmm I love French toast. This tea is not quite “French toast,” but it is delicious. It has maple, brown sugar, and that egg coating on the toast. The “toast” is missing a little though.
As others have mentioned, this is similar to pancake breakfast.
Now I want real French toast, and pancakes!
Next time I will just have to drink it WHILE having French toast! Yum.

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.
