drank Three Wishes Tea by DAVIDsTEA
6440 tasting notes

A few months back I shared some TARDIS tea with a coffee-loving friend who also happened to be a Doctor Who fan. He was really hesitant about trying “my fancy tea” but I think he was intrigued by the TARDIS blend. So together we had some tea and he admitted it was different but pretty good. The next day he called and told me he went to DAVIDs and bought tea. This was among the ones he bought and though it is not something I would pick out, he said it was good and that piqued my curiosity.

The flowers made me hesitant but I still wanted to try it so when Aimee Popovacki and I were arranging a swap, I asked for some of this. I figured it was the best way to try the tea without committing to a whole lot of it (the beauty of swaps!). So today when Aimee’s package arrived, I decided to brew up a cup.

Tastewise, this is definitely floral but not unbearable. There is also a sweetness that I can’t quite place but is really nice. Honestly, it is a very pleasant cup. I don’t know if I would restock but getting through what Aimee sent certainly won’t be a problem. So thank you Aimee for sharing with me :)

Floral tends not to be up my alley, so I know now to give this one a pass.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times

60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
