drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA
33 tasting notes

Well, this is one of the first teas I made a note on that I did not enjoy. I was very excited at the prospect of this since I have a love affair with honey but the entire thing I found way overpowering.

I assume it was the blue cornflowers that might have agitated my sinuses but it could have been the overall. The tea was way too overpowering with its sweetness and the aroma bothered me too much since it was, well, very overpowering. I do love the concept and ingredients for this though and I’m hoping that with what I have left I can maybe pair it with a dish… but for now it will sit on my shelf unused and unfortunately not be attempted to have more purchased.

If it bothers your sinuses it may not be worth trying again, but I’d recommend giving it a go with a much shorter steep if you’re up for it. Maybe 2 or 3 minutes and see how you feel. Sorry it’s not for you! :(

I’d be willing to give it another go with a shorter steep since I have a few cups left but if that doesn’t take then I think I’ll ‘retire’ it.

Bio

I’m 24 years old and female. I used to be in university as a History Major but I gave it up to be a Laboratory Technician at a coal mine. My days are long and switch to nights many a time but I always bring 3 bags of tea with me to enjoy and have fun with.

When I’m not breaking my back over coal I spend my time in my room with my two cats playing video games until the sun comes up and watching a variety of movies, most of which are Disney or are animated in some way.

When it comes to tea, I have a fierce loyalty to DAVIDsTEA as they treated me right and garnered my respect. For the most part I am focusing on them but I take other Canadian Tea companies into mind and hopefully can expand my cupboard with them.

I currently have no tea rating guides but if I indicate I bought a Tin or will store a Tin constantly on my shelf, it usually means I will be hopelessly devoted to it.

My other interests include collection Starbucks cups, listening to Deadmau5, and watching far too many BBC shows.
