Last night Tre and I went and saw the most recent Night At The Museum movie. It certainly wasn’t a cinematographic masterpiece by any stretch, but it was really good and had some very funny moments – and not gonna lie I teared up every time Robin Williams was on screen because I am a mushy, sappy baby.

The entire evening was free; a combination of Scene Points (yay scene program!) and gift cards from Christmas paid for the whole evening. Which was awesome. So awesome. I used to watch five or more movies a week in theatres when I worked for Cineplex, and now I’m lucky if I see one every three months. Movies are EXPENSIVE.

I indulged; theatre food for the night included a bag of Sweet/Sour Lifesaver gummy candies, large popcorn, large Nestea, large Cherry Sorbet (from Yogen; man I miss Yogen), and my favourite “conncoction”; a Sweet Potato poutine which ketchup popcorn shaker dissolved into the gravy. Btdubbs guys; Cineplex is fucking awesome for using a soy based gravy because then it’s safe for vegetarians like me to use, and I LOVE poutine.

So definitely a fun night overall.

Hey, I went to the movies yesterday too! The boyfriend and I saw Annie.

Totally agree about the price though, I think our tickets were $12 a piece…

costco sells movie passes that get your popcorn and drinks for basically a $ more than admission for 2 ppl to the movies… we use those for a treat when we actually go to the movies

There’s still cheap Tuesday. With a scene card you get an additional 10% off. I go almost every Tuesday.

Oh trust me guys, I know all the tricks ;) Remember, I worked for Cineplex for over a year :P When we go now, we usually go on Tuesdays – and I always have my scene card. It’s just hard paying for movies, even with the discounts, when I experienced a year of unconditionally free ones. But such is life. @Cam, how was Annie? That’s another I’d have loved to see, but Tre wasn’t feeling it.

It was good! I wish they had kept more of the original songs, but overall I really liked it. I still need to see Into the Woods too!

Bio

Hello! My name is Kelly, though many people in the tea community call me Ros or Roswell.

I am a twenty five year old proudly queer tea addict, blogger, and all around tea geek. I grew up in the Prairies, but a few years ago I relocated to Quebec to pursue a career with DAVIDsTEA in the tea industry! I’m still working on getting my French language skills down…

My first introduction to tea, in any form outside of instant and bottled iced tea, was about seven years ago when I happened to stumble upon DAVIDsTEA while looking for a birthday present for a friend! I tried their Birthday Cake rooibos blend, and I’ve been hooked on tea ever since! In those seven years; I was introduced to the online tea community, expanded my interest in flavoured teas to include a deep love and appreciation for straight teas and traditional brewing methods, got a tea themed tattoo, started reviewing teas, amassed a sizable tea and teaware collection, became a TAC certified Tea Sommelier, & even came full circle by beginning a career in the tea industry with DAVIDsTEA!

I consider myself a Jack of all Teas, and strive to have a knowledge and appreciation of all tea types, formats, and styles of drinking. I don’t like to feel boxed in to just being a “flavoured tea” or “straight tea” drinker – my expectations may vary depending on the type of tea or how it’s been processed/prepared but if it’s good tea, it’s good tea no matter how it’s been made!

You name it, I probably drink it- and I’ll absolutely try anything at least once.

My default method of preperation is hot, Western style, and straight – but I’m not opposed to additions if I’m in the right mood. If I ever add something to a tea or use a different method of preparation I will ALWAYS call it out in the tasting note though.

I like to listen to music when drinking tea, especially when I’m brewing a large pot at a time or steeping Gongfu. Often I curate very intentional tea and music pairings, and sometimes I share them here in my tasting reviews. Music is something that I find can deeply affect the experience of having tea.

Favourite flavour notes/ingredients: Pear, lychee, cranberry, cream, melon, pineapple, malt, roasty, petrichor, sweet potato, heady florals like rose, hazelnut or walnut, sesame, honey (in moderation), and very woody shou.

Least favourite flavour notes/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger, strongly spiced profiles (and most Chai in general), mushrooms, seaweed, chamomile, stevia, saltiness or anything that reminds me too much of meat that isn’t supposed to taste like meat…

Currently exploring/obsessed with: Sheng from Yiwu, Yancha (Qilan in particular), anything with a strong sweet potato note. Also, I need to try ALL the root beer teas! Searching for a really good caramel flavoured blend, ideally with a black tea base.

Please contact me at the instagram account listed below if you would like me to review your teas.

Currently I’m employed in the tea department of the DAVIDsTEA head office. While I’m still sharing my own personal thoughts on new & existing DAVIDsTEA blends, I am no longer numerically rating them due to the obvious conflict of interest. Any comments expressed are a reflection of my own thoughts and opinions, and do not reflect the thoughts and opinions of the company. Any DAVIDsTEA blends you currently see with a numeric score were reviewed prior to my being hired there and have not been adjusted since becoming a DAVIDsTEA employee.
