Backlogging from the weekend. This was nice and creamy this time, with more of the cream cheese flavour coming out. Still nice and sweet cinnamon, with that light baked goods taste. Yum

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA
1105 tasting notes

I paired this with some freshly baked chocolate cookies. I was hoping that it would bring out more of the cookie dough taste. I still find this more nutty than cookie dough. Still enjoyable, but still not exactly as I was hoping for.
I boiled the water and then let it cool a bit before steeping.

This would be a sad sipdown if I didn`t have the premium assam, because it is even better. I really enjoyed this tea. On to better and brighter assams!

Butiki Teas

Hmmm, I think you might like the new Dinjoye.

Ooh, yes, I just looked at the description and it does sound like I would enjoy that one! Next order!

CelebriTEA

Thought it said orgasmic assam…lol…

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.

tigress_al

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

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.
