drank Detox by DAVIDsTEA
773 tasting notes

wow i really should drink more of this.
i really like my two bold green blends from Davids (this and African Mint) but they tend to always be put second in line to my other teas. i can’t explain why. but maybe today’s sips will be the wind of change.
i spontaneously went out for some beers last night so having green balancing teas like this are obviously a good idea today. lemony and fresh. i bet this will also be a good iced tea. and even though i tend to prefer my teas hot, this one still has spring written on it’s leaves.

drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA

holy crap strawberry!
the smell is almost too too sweet!
i bet this will be an amazing summer tea. which is not really what i was expecting at all, but i sure am kinda thrilled by it.
but more importantly…. LOOK!!!

and bonus! the samples Davids sent me are Copabanana, Pom Tango, and Coconut Oolong! yay the exact new samples i need :) i will try all the teaz!


Fancy! So many timolinos!!!


One for each type of tea?


i will say that the timolinos work so well at keeping the tea hot that i can make tea at home at 8:00am and then drink them throughout the day always still warm, sometimes even still too hot to sip. i am using the black and green for black and green tea. haven’t assigned a plan to the white and purple yet….

to explain, when we go to the movies or whatnot, i tend to bring tea for my partner-in-crime (cuz everyone loves tea!), and over the weeks i’d find myself wishing i had more than 2 thermoses more and more often. go on a hike? not enough tea. go to the movies? not enough tea. go on a long car ride? not enough tea.
and then the purple one came out! AND IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL! i just couldn’t resist. basically i don’t use cups anymore. i only use timolinos.


I can totally relate to using timolinos instead of cups (as well as taking it with you to whatever you may be doing). I prefer the french-press travel mug I have for around the house and I no longer have many unfinished mugs around.
I often wished they were just a bit bigger but having more than one really fixes that problem, good thinking! :)


yes teatails! because it doesn’t get cold i don’t abandon the half finished pot or mug like i used to ALWAYS do. good thermoses definitely help me enjoy my tea more. for realzors.

drank Apricot Afternoon by Tea Guys
773 tasting notes

the first time i had this tea i was so surprised and delighted that it smelled so much like Apricot**, the baby in Strawberry Shortcake cartoons.
but i made some last night and then sipped it but didn’t drink most of it. so this morning i dumped it out and made a fresh mug before work, and even now i’m not jazzed or anything about drinking it. i guess i’m just not in the mood for this tea as much as i thought i was? (the weather is going to be 60 today! and it was a wacky blizzardy type weather just 4 days ago)

I KNOW i should have saved last night’s cup and iced it. i bet this is a great great summer iced tea!

it’s a bold happy apricot jam sort of scent and the black base mixes with it in a very friendly way.

Apricot is a little white-haired baby with an unusual vocabulary of oversized words. Apricot and her pet bunny Hopsalot lived in Big Apple City, down the hall from Lemon Meringue and T.N. Honey, and like them, she re-located to Strawberryland at the conclusion of Strawberry Shortcake’s visit.


i drank half of this tea. which is a fine enough tea don’t get me wrong! but then on a whim i added half of my pineapple coconut water to the mug!?! and it adds a tang to it and is tasty! i suspect something like this will be happening in tall iced glasses all summer long for me.

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

I’m impressed with your knowledge of the world of Strawberry Shortcake


haha i had the dolls of course. (cabbage patch, sea wee creatures, rose petal dolls, glamour gals, etc) i have two sisters and we grew up in the 80’s. dolls and dance routines were basically our 24/7 business.


I had that doll too! And wasn’t there a line of Strawberry Shortcake dolls that when squeezed, blew a whichever fruit she was scented kiss at you? I remember having an apricot one of those….


yes classielassie! my sister had that one :) they were like the baby doll version of the small play dollies.

jasmine is nice once in a while. i’m not a fangirl about it or anything.
i bet when my sister moves in she’ll help me drink this down, which is good.

drank Citron Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
773 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
773 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!
