This tea was more vanilla than caramel today, but just as delicious! I seriously love this tea. It is probably one of the smoothest teas I have tasted.

Sip down.
I enjoyed this herbal, especially on a cold winter’s evening (even though it’s technically spring!….it’s still winter here :( ). Mint is the most prominent, followed by fruity (from the apple and blackberry), then the coconut creamy note, which is my favourite in this blend.

Shoot, I forgot to log this on the weekend.
I made some London fog cupcakes and infused the almond milk that I used with 3 tsp of this tea. They turned out ok, nothing I can’t live without or anything, but something a little different which is nice.
I then made a cuppa to enjoy along with my cupcake the next morning. I still love this tea!

I sipped this down tonight and sent it off with a final latte. It was delicious as usual. I really enjoyed this blend, and have found myself enjoying so many of Frank’s honeybush blends!
I did find with this particular blend that it almost needed to be made as a latte to really get the flavour. But that’s ok!

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

The creamy notes really produced a full mouthfeel this morning. It was not quite as floral as I remember, but it seemed that the vanilla was a little more prominent. Perhaps I remember it incorrectly. Do you know how sometimes you expect something to taste a certain way, and then it doesn’t?

I love the juiciness of this tea. It I the best with a little bit of brown crystal sugar.
It is so good iced.

Enjoyed this hot and cold so far this week. It is stunning both ways of course.

This was a sipdown this afternoon with my in laws. I love them dearly, but sometimes they are just plain crazy. Haha
Anyway, I really enjoy this tea and might have to get more to have iced in the summer. It is super finicky with brewing though.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

I finished this tin off this morning with my sister in law. I will likely restock this one, but probably not until the winter because it seems like a winter tea to me. All glittery ad citrus, with that sweet vanilla at Christmas time.

Another sad sipdown.
I love the silky smooth mouthfeel of this tea. Sometimes, grape notes shine through and surprise me!
I will definitely order more of this in the future but for now I have lots of jasmine silver needle from Teavivre.
Sipping this tea down means that I am back down under 200 teas though so that’s good.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.
