drank Citron Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
768 tasting notes

i’m really into oolongs this week. mostly inspired by everyone’s coconut oolong love explosion.

what other Davids Tea oolongs are you favorites? i think i might place an order of just oolongs?
i have vanilla orchid, quangzhou milk, and this citron already.

i like having my citrusy teas in the morning. so this one is perfect perfect perfect.
in my green timolino walking across the bridge on my way to work. it’s windy here but the sun is out.


The vanilla orchid and quangzhou are my favorites lol and you already have those haha, their tie Kwan yin is really good too, and i don’t t mind the ginseng oolong, although it’s not my favorite


My favourite is actually the Tung Ting Oolong, and of course now the Coconut Oolong haha. High Mountain Oolong is amazingly delicious but also very expensive.

yummy puerh after a big lunch.

i’m answering a question a day for journaling purposes…

yesterday’s questions was:
If a doctor gave you five years to live, what would you try to accomplish?


Taste all the teas in the world! Only partially kidding.


Write write write! If I only had 5 years to live I’d want to leave behind something to be remembered by, so my dream would be to travel around the world and work on novels. Well, actually, that’s my dream even if I have a hundred years to live…

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
768 tasting notes

so i have this weird thing where i feel like oolongs NEED to be brewed in my gongfu pot. so i can watch them get fat and bulk up. like i have to be able to witness the leaf puffing in order for the tea to be brewed.
and i recently realized that this has basically kept me from drinking my oolongs.
sad i know.
so today i have brewed this in my timolino (using a tea bag cuz that basket is tiny)
and the smell is heavenly.
but you knew that already.

i’m turning over a new oolong leaf. let’s celebrate.
more bulk!

drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA

one of my many samples from davids.
(i’ve been hoarding them all up, for emergencies)
i didn’t expect this tea to be this delicious! i mean i’m not gonna go buy some asap or anything, but i didn’t expect it to taste so fancy.
it still reminds me a bit of Stormy Night or basically any of Davids chocolate/coconut/vanilla teas. and it’s a yum.


That’s an impressive sample stash!

drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA

omg i’m so excited!
omg what did i just do?!
i swear i was just gonna LOOK at the davidstea stuff…
but then all of a sudden i had The Earl’s Garden, Bamboozled, and Big Apple in my cart
TWO Timolino Travel Mugs?!?!?!, one White and one FUCKING AWESOME Mate Purple!!!!
i couldn’t help myself! it was just so beautiful!
our eyes met and my knees immediately went weak. and i’m so excited to hold it close.
also i left my timolinos at home today by accident. weird. and it’s also raining and snowing at the same time right now out my window. help me Big Apple.

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

I am heading over to DT on my lunch break to check out the new stuff. I was just eyeballing (eye-molesting, really) the timolinos online but told myself only if they have the colour I want! The new white elephant perfect tea mug WILL be mine though, oh yes.

Jackie O

the energy and excitement in this post just MADE my morning!!




2 timolinos! I’d be excited too! :D


Purple is my fav color so I had to look up that timolino (even though I already have a white one) and it is a beauty! Perhaps I also need two? haha


Seems like the elephant is the clear favorite! I want one too!

Hee – enjoy your timolinos!

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

I didn’t get the mug because I’m worried the images won’t last, I can see an edge on it so I wanted to be safe…. Probably will go next payday though

i haven’t tasted this yet because i’m still waiting for it to cool.
but it has been brewed in my brand new black timolino.
now i have a black timolino for black tea and a green one for green and white tea.
(i just need to do a good cleaning on the green one is all)
i feel very satisfied with this arrangement. i use my timolino always. even when i’m not traveling. because it keeps the tea good and hot and i’m a slow sipper.


Wow, you’re colour coordinating. That’s great haha. You can never have enough of them. I love mine too.


i’m glad they don’t have the brown timolino anymore. cuz then it would be hard to not go OVERBOARD and get a white one for white tea and a brown one for herbal/mate. and i would never admit this thought to other people, but since we are all obsessed i trust you guys understand ;)


It totally makes sense though, especially since DT colour coordinates like that too. Why not do the same! I think I’m happy with my robin’s egg one though. Don’t need another, don’t need another, don’t need another…

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

I might have to get one of those… my DT travel mug is peeling and doesn’t look cute anymore…. cute > functional, plus those Timolinos come in nice colours! Also I trust you enjoyed this tea because after Santa’s Secret it’s my other all time favorite!


hey natasha, yes i do like the cream of earl tea. it’s actually only my second time having it so it’s hasn’t written it’s name on my heart yet, but i find the teas i love are the ones i can still smell even when i’m not brewing them. and this tea does certainly have a noticeable and lyrical scent.

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

My heart is engraved with this stuff. Sometimes it hurts. If they ever discontinue it I might actually die!!

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

Where did I post my name?


haha i just visited your etsy site is all. (i’ve totally got this internet thing down yo!) hah

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

Haha oh you’re a sly one

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
768 tasting notes

i ordered it! and it arrived today! and it smells heavenly!
i love all the ingredients in it. so i knew i had to get some.
and when i realized i have no interest in any of the other spring teas coming out tomorrow, i just went for it!

it’s supposed to snow here today.
and i have been so so very blue feeling.
i’m supposed to be marathon training but i can’t seem to get myself motivated.
what’s your favorite feel good tea?
and also what’s your favorite ‘escape’ crap telly?
i mean that’s what overcast dull snowy days are for.


Favorite escape tv—Grey’s Anatomy! I know it’s a glorified soap opera, but god dangit I love it!


I’ve been watching The Vampire Diaries. I simultaneously hate and love it. It’s like sooooo obvious about what’s going to happen and it makes me roll my eyes all the time, but I get started and can’t stop.
as for feel good tea…anything that tastes like dessert in hot, liquid form.


oh hah my sister read the Vamp Diaries books in high school. and i am a big Supernatural fan. for some reason mentioning VD has reminded me that i was considering trying Teen Wolf…hmm

and yes i used to sit on the floor of my old apt with my roommate sprawled on the sofa and we would tear through entire seasons on Grey’s Anatomy at lighting speed. highly addictive escapism definitely.


I was thinking about Teen Wolf too since it’s on Netflix, but about a month ago they were filming TVD right outside a building at my school…and I was in there…and I had no idea what was going on. Then I remembered how I had a crush on Ian Somerhalder when I was like 12 or 13 and yeah….23 episodes later…

this is a fine puerh. i like puerhs a lot. they are dark and brooding. they have an undercurrent and a pull to them.
they have gravity.

personally, i do not want to cheer a puerh tea up with berries, or cajole a puerh with coffee beans. …however the sour flick of citrus always seems to do a puerh a graceful and sultry kind of compliment. basically i love a blood orange puerh. purrrr.

alas, the story ends strained because i have been spoiled.
here in my city a tea shoppe called Carytown Teas has the most amazing Blood Orange Puerh i have ever sipped and probably will ever sip. and it has changed me. i’ll never be the same. amazing when a tea can do that. (but davids tea blood orange, i have found my true love and you will never again touch my lips. we’ll just have to go our separate ways. the distance will do us good.)

When My Ship Comes In (i play bass on this song)


I gave mine away…


ya, i might try a cup again, but it’s more likely this will go away with the tea spring cleaning.

Marcel Duchamp

I’d like to try this one at some point.


It’s strong!


Marcel, maybe after my sis moves in and i do some tea reassessment i’ll send you my sample if i still have some left.
