drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
757 tasting notes

Well, like most others, I’m not drinking this for the taste. I’ve had a little bit if a sore/dry throat the last few days and today I woke up with a headache and badly congested. I didn’t do any of my normal remedies as I had an acupuncture session and wanted to see how much that might help before I self medicate. Anyway, I saved a few dollars with today’s appointment with the “pay it forward” promo at the health collective where I go for community acupuncture, so I thought a tea to go was in order, but I didn’t want to pay $6 for a Vital Resistance tea from Teaopia. I went to David’s instead, opted to try one of their cold and flu teas and ended up with this.

Well, the taste isn’t my favourite so it’s not something I’d drink regularly unless I was feeling bad. I’m not sure if it’s the tea or the walk or what, but I’m feeling super warm right now. My sinuses have been slowly draining all morning, but my head is still hurting. I might make some Dulce and Banana later.

Edit: DO NOT DRINK THIS COLD! It is vile and nauseating and foul. That is all.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
