This is really good actually. I don’t know why but lately I am always hesitant of DAVIDsTEAs new blends. I buy samples of all of them and then leave them in my tea drawers forever, and in the case of limited edition blends, that sometimes means leaving them until its too late to get more. I’m blaming the stevia.

Anyways, as I said, this tea is a good one. Caramel is captured so well but the jasmine keeps it from being overly sweet. More than that, it is caramel and vanilla and custard and cracked brown sugar and…creme brulee…with just a bit more. Honestly, I am crazy impressed here and really sad I waited as long as I did to give this a try because its awesome. Good job, DAVIDs on a successful creme brulee tea.

See, now due to DTs nonsense, I no longer buy small samples for this very reason.
With this one, I didn’t even buy a sample. Even though I knew that this was a good one.

I guess I am just well and truly irritated by their shenanigans: the stevia, the false flavours, the matcha changes, the prepackaging, and the outrageous changes in the FS program.

Sorry that I missed this one though.

drank Banana Pancakes by 52teas
3704 tasting notes

This has been in a traveling tea mug since 7:30 am yesterday. I took it to work but didn’t drink it there and then brought it home where I discovered my brother threw his back out and so again this got forgotten. Then I went to see Thor again and out for dinner and then came home and crashed.

So, it is metally and only room temperature but there is also definite pancakes and maple syrup notes here with hints of banana among the tin. Now I am sad I let this sit as long as I did because it clearly was going to make for a tasty drink but now my neglect made things sad.

Eggnog latte sipdown (though this was never in my cupboard to begin with)

I got a tiny tin of this when I got the Mother’s Day gift of Kitten and the Bear/Sloane Tea stuffed truffles and since I don’t love EGs, I was worried I would never finish it. However, all it took was a bit of sharing and a latte to finish this.

Honestly as far as EGs go, this one is actually really nice, even with the blerg included. That’s because of the copious amounts of cream notes that make this smooth and delicious, with just a touch of citrus. As an eggnog latte, it is even creamier of course and oh so delicious. Yum!

drank Just Beet It by DAVIDsTEA
3704 tasting notes

So today has been a super productive day. Im getting a lot done at work and though I normally ignore the teas I bring, I’ve actually drank 2/3 I brought (this and the dragon…I took a sip of the other and burnt my tongue). In the case of this tea, because of the mate and the lack of food, I dipped on this forgetting the caffeine content and got super jittery for a bit. The thing is it is so fruity that I didn’t even realize at first what was going on. So, anyways, moral of the story is despite the copious amount of fruit here and the lack of mate flavor, you can still get buzzed off this.

Btw this is a Sipdown. Yay!

drank The Dragon! by 52teas
3704 tasting notes

I woke up early today and when I wake up early, I make tea. Apparently lots of tea because I can never decide what I want. Today I iced this and Just Beet It and made a hot mug of Blackberry Maple Waffle to accompany me to work. I also drank 2 water bottles so far since I was awake and had nothing better to do.

Anyways, this tea is a really nice iced tea. The marshmallow adds a fluffiness that makes this so light while the berries and green tea base keep it fresh and fruity. I’ve really enjoyed this while I had it and with one teaspoon of leaf left, I think I’ll enjoy that hot.

Had this as a plain tea and an eggnog latte yesterday and though I didn’t love it plain, the latte was awesome. So awesome that I had to have it again tonight. Think liquid custard deliciousness. Yum!

Chocolate Milk Latte Sipdown

I didn’t have enough of this to make a latte on its own so I mixed it 50/50 with Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA. It’s a little watery if I’m being honest but that’s on me and my measurements. Aside from that, this tastes like chocolate, caramel and spice (well…cinnamon). It’s not too bad and i am glad to have gotten this Sipdown in.

Next they’ll be cranking that eggnog out before Halloween. Outrage.

VariaTEA

I can’t be mad at it when these eggnog lattes taste so good.

Evol Ving Ness

Totally in favour of eggnog lattes. It just seems a bit early for eggnog to be available.

If you see someone with a Ban November Eggnog placard in front of a grocery store, that’ll be me.

VariaTEA

Eggnog isn’t so bad cuz it can be ignored on the shelf. Christmas music in November is the true villain cuz it can’t be escaped.

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.
