drank Shirley Temple by DAVIDsTEA
3735 tasting notes

So I saw Matilda the Musical tonight and though the play was delightful, the brat sitting next to me wasn’t. I was kicked, elbowed, and even had her booster seat shoved on to my seat for a little while since she decided she didn’t want it on hers for a little bit. The kid, who was not young enough for that behaviour to be acceptable, just would not stop moving and bouncing her seat. Then, at intermission she got a Hagen Daz bar and somehow the thing ended up in her hand instead of on the stick and when I offered her a napkin she said no and proceeded to wipe her hand on the seat and our shared armrest. Add to that a guy with way too much cologne and you have my theatre experience. I have had many awesome experiences, needless to say, this wasn’t one of them.

Though, the play itself was quite great and had me channeling childhood. That had me thinking Shirley Temples. Hence Shirley Temple teapop. This tea makes for a tasty teapop, though today it is far too orange tasting to be called a Shirley Temple. The hint of grenadine is floating on top but it is playing second fiddle to the citrus notes. Oh well.

Now to tuck into bed and watch the Worst Bakers in America.

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA

Comforting myself with the coconutty, caramel deliciousness of this tea infused chocolate while I read about the $10,000 worth of damages I did to my poor car :(

Lovely tea, but ZOMG, I’m so sorry to hear that. :(

Luckily it is covered by insurance and no one is hurt. That was a shocker though.

So this is a smooth, honey sorta tea with a slight bit of medicinal wood. It’s not terrible but it’s also just plain Rooibos which isn’t something I would need stocked.

The vanilla and pear is strong today while the butter is providing a large dose of creaminess. No cardamom to be found though that’s just fine with me. Thank you for the share Sil.

This smells like strawberry and cream but the ingriedients told me that’s probably not what I’m in for…hibiscus, rosehips, orange peels…not the sweet flavors one would expect in a strawberry cream tea. I made this as a teapop and it’s weird. Carbonated strawberry water, tart though like the fruit that isn’t totally ripe, and a slight cream flavor that is a bit artificial.

drank Pomme by Hediard

Finishing this off iced tonight. It’s weird because this doesn’t scream apple to me. It’s super sweet and actually makes me think of the candy coating on a candy apple which is basically sugar with the slightest apple flavor to it. That’s what I am getting and though it’s not bad, it’s not the fruity tea I wanted either. Nonetheless, thank you Sil for the share.

haha no worries! sharing is caring!

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.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around but don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
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
