What a great way to start the new year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYEONE!
I am drinking up my last carton of eggnog and needed a treat this morning, so I made this as an eggnog latte. So delicious!

drank Cocoberry by DAVIDsTEA

I am not a coffee fan, but I was very curious about this mate. It actually isn’t too bad. The berries are kind of a nice touch. However, I don’t like coffee so I probably wouldn’t drink this. I just bought enough for 2 cups, which I am glad about. Maybe I will give the rest to my friend who drinks coffee and try to convert her to tea! Mhwahahaha

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

This isn’t too bad. Lots of sweetness, with a hint of cherry, and a tiny bit of “cake” flavour. I am not getting any pineapple.
I will probably drink my sample size bag, but there are much better teas out there. I won’t be getting any more of this.

Yay! Another honeybush!
Hot, this tastes a little weird. Cold though, it is delicious. Root beer without the fizziness, and with some creaminess like ice cream. I will add sweetener next time to make it a real treat.
I will be drinking lots of this in the summer!

Backlog from yesterday.
I am not sure how this differs from the original version and one day I will have to do a comparison. This was delicious though. It was a little spicy which I wasn’t really expecting but I didn’t mind it. The vanilla adds a nice, smooth creaminess. The pumpkin is light, and I wish it was a little stronger. But, I didn’t add sweetener which would bring out the pumpkin more. Next time, I will add sweetener.
The oolong is nice and smooth. So comforting on a overcast cold day.

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas
1165 tasting notes

Oh this is so good. I picked up on honey notes right in the first sip. The malty chocolate notes develop at the end of the sip. I noticed some nutty notes in the aftertaste and wasn’t sure exactly what kind of nutty notes I was picking up on. When I looked at the description, I saw pecan and decided yes, that is the note I am tasting.
I find myself being drawn to straight teas more and more.

drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas
1165 tasting notes

After a few days of not having any loose leaf teas and only drinking Keurig chai lattes, I am happy to have loose tea again.

I have never had lychee before but this is delicious. The first couple of sips of this tea were interesting. Tasting something for the first time is always exciting. As I continued to sip, I enjoyed it more and more. There are lots of fruity notes (which I assume to be the lychee). The floral notes are in the background and are subtle, but I find that they add depth to the tea.
Resteeped for 4.5 minutes was just as delicious, and I found that the floral notes came out a little more.

This was on my shopping list for a long time, so I am glad that I finally ordered it.

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I thought this would be a Christmas-like tea. I shared this pot with my in-laws. It was creamy and minty. I didn’t get too much blackberry, but I did get notes of Apple.
Refreshing and great to have after eating ALOT!

Merry Christmas to my Steepster family!
I shared a Christmas morning pot of this tea with my family. I just love watching children open Christmas presents.
This tea was comforting and perked me up for a fun filled day of family time.
I thought this tea was fairly enjoyable but I don’t think that I would repurchase it.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
