Thanks for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

Since it was so nice on the weekend, I needed a cold brewed white tea, and I very much enjoyed this. It is so summery with peach and vanilla and a little note of caramel. The raspberries somehow didn’t make it into my jug, but that’s ok because it was still good.. Slurp…..that disappeared quickly!

I really enjoyed this rooibos. I used the whole sample in my giant bird mug. It was a cold rainy evening and it spruced up my mood!

It isn’t too sweet which is what happens sometimes with maple flavoured teas IMO. I didn’t get much vanilla but I did detect notes of cinnamon. I would consider ordering this in the fall (if it is available again!)

Fruity whites will forever be a favourite for me. I also enjoy blending them in fruit smoothies. So healthy!

I really enjoyed this hot, but as it cooled down, I enjoyed it even more. For me, the pomegranate stood out the most, and the guava is in the background. It tastes fairly natural. The flavours are fairly light.

It is also made a very good cold brew!

No tasting notes on this one yet?

Unfortunately, the day that I drank this was one of those “hurry up and gulp your teas before it gets cold” kind of days and I forgot to jot down my tasting notes. Next time, I will pay more attention.

I enjoyed this tea as I have been trying to fend off a cold that my kids have. I don’t often reach for ginger when I am healthy. I find that it is enjoyed best with some honey and a couple of slices of lemon!

Sipdown. I have been drinking a lot of tea cold brewed lately as the weather warms up. I enjoyed this as usual!

There was only a tiny bit of this left, so I combined it with some pina colada honeybush (52teas). The resulting cold brew was delicious!!

I am always a sucker for a strawberry black tea. I like that it is good cold or hot!

The black tea base is smooth and a little bit malty, with hints of vanilla. I wish that the strawberry was a little more robust, but a decent tea. I will try it cold brewed next time I think

drank Earl Grey Cream by Zen Tea

Some days, you just want to reach for something familiar. Yesterday was one of those days as lately I have not been writing many notes. I am still enjoying tea, I just don’t have time to write about it lately!

Earl grey is one of my favourite black teas, and this one in particular is towards the top for me. Today, it was a little less creamy though for some reason. Still a delicious cuppa!

I am not really a fan of spicy things, but hey I like chocolate!
This was just ok for me, it was spicy enough, but the chocolate was too faint. The oolong and black base was a nice combination IMO.

I am happy to have tried it but not likely something I would order.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

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.
