812 Tasting Notes


I have been scared of Genmaicha, but this is SO GOOD!!
There was no need to be scared. This is deep and rich, chocolate, with that lovely malt. I really enjoy that toasty flavour from the rice.

This tastes really “homey” to me if that makes sense. I really enjoy this, but next time, I think I would steep in a tea bag rather than my steeper because I am still tasting it today.

This is a really nice citrus vanilla herbal selection. I need to have more herbals in my tea collection!

Thanks again to Nicole for this sample AGES ago! I enjoyed this berry blend and might buy it if I ever run across it somewhere.

I used the whole sample today and it seemed to be sweet and smooth. I love white teas in the afternoon. Delicious

I have been hoarding this tea but it is really time to sip it down. I really enjoyed this oolong. I love the fresh buttery, floral taste.
I would also like to try the autumn variety.

This was my first Teavana experience, while I was at the West Edmonton mall for a girls trip! I mixed this with a little bit of white pearls because I still wanted just a tad bit of caffeine but not too much, so I guess this isn’t a very accurate note on this tea.
I thought this herbal was ok, a nice blend of spices, but still a little bit chocolate too for sweetness. I don’t think I would purchase it though.

This was a great cuppa to go on my shopping adventures!

Wow, the customer service when I ordered the cup was terrible. The girl was very monotone and not very helpful at all. She also didn’t even tell me that this had mate in it, even though I said I wanted an oolong that didn’t have a lot of caffeine……I was a little annoyed at that.

However, I did enjoy this oolong, and I enjoy it more now that I know what the ingredients actually are since she wouldn’t tell me. It was a little bit earthy, but I guess that was due to the mate. The chocolate was pretty muted, but still good. I wasn’t overly impressed though.
I got this as a cup to go, so I am not even sure if the salesgirl brewed it correctly or not.

I finally got a milk frother on my girls weekend to Edmonton, and I finally had a chance to use it tonight to make my dessert latte. I got it at Ikea so it was super cheap, and it was the first time in an Ikea….what a crazy store!
Anyway, this was a good latte tonight, I got the proportion of tea to milk just right!


I used to work at that IKEA! Hope you enjoyed your trip.


Thanks, I certainly did!

Sipdown today.
I really enjoyed this lovely black tea. It is creamy and I really enjoy it with a couple of little bits of crystal sugar. The pumpkin is possibly a little more subtle than I would like, but it was delicious and warming on this crazy cold day.
I will likely order more of this in the fall!

This was the first tea of my girls trip to Edmonton without the baby! How exciting for me!
I found that the coconut provided a nice smoothness to this tea. I did add a tiny splash of milk, I felt that it was just one of those mornings. The chai spices weren’t super spicy, which I kind of actually liked.

I really liked this for a bagged tea.

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.
