drank Gold Rush by DAVIDsTEA
2221 tasting notes

Mmm… Extremely sugary mulberry tea with a bit of coconut and a hint of white tea. :) This is more like it.

I think the sugaryness is one of the reasons I like this tea so much. I even bought plain dried mulberries, and yes they are indeed as sweet as they make this tea. They’re incredible, but most of the flavour is sweetness. Sadly the coconut does leave a bit of oil on the top of the cup. And it’s extremely expensive for what it is, since it contains so many heavy berries and so little light white tea.

Oh well. I’ll still get some every once in a while.

(I didn’t pay any attention to steeping. I dumped some tea into the strainer, added boiled water, let it sit while I made a mango smoothie… this tea is a good one for less than ideal brewing situations, although it’s not exactly high in caffeine, which makes it less ideal for work.)

As soon as my frequent steeping rewards are redeemable, I’m getting some of this!

the low content of actual tea makes it super forgiving. I think Gold Rush and Earl of Lemon are the only really forgiving whites that DAVIDs has released. I can steep ‘em both all day long in my timolino and add water as needed (sooooo glad I got a 250g bag of EoL before it got taken away. It’s soooo lemony!. I need me a plain lemon white, it’s such a good combo)

OMGsrsly

I was actually thinking of Earl of Lemon, but then realized I didn’t have any left. :) So then I had this one. And it was good. I’ll have to look around for a lemony white tea, that’s just lemon-citrusy. Sounds so refreshing. :)

Yeah, that’s why I’m collecting points Cavo. Free Gold Rush. :)

Roswell Strange

I’ve got enough point for two free 50g bags so far… Meep.

Bear With Me

I can spare some Earl of Lemon if you’d like some. To hold you over til we find that perfect lemony/citrusy white :) I need to get creative while I’m locked up and come up with unique stuff I can send to the FB tea frens who already have everything. Might need to sneak up to Janet’s before I check in and get a list of all her stuff. There’s bound to be something I can send out!

VariaTEA

I am so close to two free bags – 178 points. My sister didn’t use the card when she bought the 250g of Caramel Corn so I am hoping there might be a way to email them to get the points.

Roswell Strange

I’m sitting at 234 points atm… :/

OMGsrsly

Mmm, Janet’s Special Orange. :) I’m OK, Bear With Me (hee!), I really do have loads of tea!

Bear With Me

you’re off the hook for now then. But Sil and Dexter are at the top of the list! I feel like I’m forgetting a third person who sent me something recently (besides you OMGsrsly) and it’s really bugging me.

also, for some reason, I’m finding it REALLY important to figure out if i’m a heffalump or a woozle and what colour I am O.o

Roswell Strange

I recently sent you some stuff (pretty much I pawned off my Buddha’s Blend on you) but really; don’t feel like you’ve gotta send stuff my way! My cupboard is finally at a size I’m happy with!

Bear With Me

Yay! I knew I wasn’t going crazy (this time)! I didn’t check the identities list before I ran away from facebook. woops!
you’ll get something eventually, along with the others. Gotta figure out what, and then get together the money. Then I can send ALL the teas to ALL the tea frens! :D (okay seriously, waaaayyyyyy loopy over here. I think you guys would get a kick out of me right about now :P )

OMGsrsly

I think you might be at least partially green. :)

Bear With Me

but what KIND of green?! forest? emerald? lime? grass? apple? hunter? kelly? these are the important questions in life!!!

OMGsrsly

Umm. Green green? Haha. (Yeah idk. I’m falling asleep over here.)

Roswell Strange

Imma say that I’m either orange/teal or Kelly green ;)

Bear With Me

I see what you did there :P

and OMGsrsly – share your sleepiness with me? I haven’t slept a wink since….(counting back) the stupid dog woke me up at 3am on Monday?

OMGsrsly

Roswell, I am so glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that. Also, YAY ORANGE WOO!

OMGsrsly

My sleepiness is related to tummy troubles and being too warm/stressed to eat. Pretty sure you don’t want all that either. :/
