I love this tea, but I don’t think I love this one as a latte quite yet… Maybe I just make it too strong? And maybe I should just steep it for 2-3 minutes instead of the usual 4 mins. But as a hot tea… YUM! This tea is still a favourite.

I can’t believe I’ve had this tea so long now! Yikes! But it’s still so amazing and still tastes fine. I’ve been drinking this one before bed for a few weeks now so that I can relax and I think it’s doing the job. There has been a lot of stress in my life lately and I’m glad for something like this. I will definitely be getting this one again once i’m out of it.

I don’t care for this one anymore. I think I have just come to realize I don’t care for Mate teas really… Oh well..

Sipdown of this one!

I do like this one. It’s a nice coconut/pineapple flavour. I get more coconut than anything. But it is yummy. It’s lovely how it steeps up nice and pink. A nice, sweet treat this afternoon while both babes sleep.

drank Cantaloupe Ice by DAVIDsTEA

So, I’m starting to realize I don’t care for sweet blackberry leaves either…

I steeped up this one for 7 mins in my ice tea press and wow, it’s yummy but wow it was different… I ended up adding some agave and some extra water to it to smooth it out a bit as I found the blackberry leaf sweetness as really weird and didn’t quite sit right… I’m not too sure why I don’t like the blackberry leaves.. I feel like they give me a weird taste in the back of my mouth… Again, I blame baby #2 for that. My body seems to still be a bit weird after that. Babe is 3 months old but I think I’m still trying to get back to myself.

After baby #2 my tastebuds have really gone weird on me. I don’t know what’s going on. hahah
Anyways, I remember really loving this one, but this time around, I just can’t handle the stevia. It leaves a strange taste in my mouth… hmmmm

Many of us, with or without babies, can’t handle the stevia. DT’s has really ramped it up lately.

Glad I’m not alone!

I can’t do stevia, either.

drank S'Mores by Teavana

It seems strange to me that I am the second person to review this one…

Anyways, took my last 3PS of this one and made it into a lovely latte. It was so good! I got the chocolate and the graham cracker, but not as much the marshmallow flavour. I got more of the sweetness and creaminess from the marshmallow more than anything. Glad I finished it up. I probably wouldn’t get this one again only because I think this is the only tea from Teavana that I’m really enjoying at this moment. Plus I really like the Citizen tea version right now. So I’ll stick with that one.

drank Cherry Vanilla by Lemon Lily

This makes me think of Cherry Vanilla coke, but without the coke under taste. I don’t know what it is about this one, but I absolutely love it. I added some milk and rock sugar because I prefer it that way. I find the sugar pulls out the cherry flavour much better. And I like the milk to just smooth it all out and bring it all together. This tea is just such a lovely blend.

Made this as a latte earlier this afternoon. It was delicious! Oh my goodness. It was more like a hot chocolate than a tea! So yummy. Wish I had gotten more!

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
