How fitting to start my tea swap journey with one blended by the swapper herself – SimplyJenW ! First of all, thank you for all the rooibos! It’s going to be an adventure.

I picked up some treats from a new European bakery in my neighbourhood, Kave Haz. We got some Gypsy cake and French Cream. Yum.

Of course, to make this an extra special treat, I made lattes with foamed milk and vanilla syrup! Mm I tried it on its own first and it’s the perfect blend and sweet caramel and apple. I’m totally into apple teas this fall, but rooibos is my favorite. I love rooibos lattes too, so I digress – thank you SJW, you expert tea blender you :)

I’m really enjoying this tea. Next time I will have it without the syrup because it’s quite decadent and sweet just on it’s own.

I feel so lucky to have so much of this in my cupboard to share with friends and keep by my side all fall.

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.

The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
