Long story short… I just finished five years with Davidstea. During that time, I had two kids and drank so much davidstea, that my cupboard is about 99% them now. COVID meant that my store was one of the ones that got shutdown so now I’m mostly at home, which is ok… but if COVID continues the way that it looks like it’s going to, then I guess it’s a good thing I am. I might have to homeschool my 4 and 5 yr olds.

Fun positive that happened during COVID… I finished writing a novel!!! 73,000 (ish) words. (About 280 pages). I’m so happy!! I’m trying to write a second novel but it’s been tough going. Maybe in the new year.

I definitely wasn’t expecting the tea to taste like that… lol I got this one probably 3 years ago at the Toronto Tea Festival, and I’m FINALLY trying it.

It reminds me of Nepal Black from Davidstea, but is definitely stronger. It has a strong tobacco taste to it and I’m getting some straw like the other reviewer here. I feel like I’m getting a hint of floral too.

This tea is pretty smooth, which I like. Really no bitterness or astringency either, which again I like. I don’t like when teas leave my mouth dry. This one definitely doesn’t do that.

My sample of this one was a teabag, so really only one cup of this to try. I think I would get this one again, but only when my tea collection goes way down.

Welcome back and a novel to boot. Bravo!

Thanks everyone! It’s good to be back.
The novel is a young adult fantasy fiction which is totally outside my comfort level, but the story came to me and I just had to try. It’s out with friends/family for feedback and editing at the moment. I’m hoping I can find an editor and maybe a publisher this year. I really want to see it in print. :)

Please keep us updated on your book! That sounds like just my kind of story. Congrats on such an achievement.

Almost a year ago now, I got some teas from Cha Gloriette at the 2019 Toronto Tea Festival. This is one of them. It has a standard Ruby 18 scent with some sawdust, milk chocolate, and peat notes on top. Wet leaf aroma is then more like tomato vine, molasses, eucalyptus, and tobacco. The taste of this tea is not super distinctive, but it is well balanced with a strong sweetness and notes of vanilla, wood, and cashew nuts. The texture is very nice overall, even though the body is actually quite light. It has an oily mouthfeel with a light astringency to it.
