My friend gave me a sample of this to try, so this morning I debated between this and LB. Uhmmmmm that was dumb. I made a poor decision. I can’t believe I’m able to be responsible for a tiny innocent helpless young human yet I chose to drink THIS when I could have made LB instead.

The other day when I drank DTT’s Cafe Vanilla I pondered out loud (in type, online, to you) about possibly not being a fan of whatever black base they use, because I feel like I can taste it in every one of their blends and it has a weird note.

Welp, this morning, with this cup, I was able to test that theory.

The end result of this experiment is that I’m not a fan.
There’s a weird background taste to this that seems unnatural somehow.

I wouldn’t have paid money for an unflavored DTT in the first place (just…WHY?!), and this cup only reinforces that sentiment.

Blehhhhhh. Should’ve had the LB.
Must always choose LB. SILLY GIRL.

I have come to learn that I only like DTT’s lime and lemon chiffon, orange and cream rooibos blends, and even those I can live without if need be

Yeah, my interest is waning, apparently. Ah well, on to greener pastures

I find I binge on their teas around Black Friday because of a) great deals, and b) Fall/Winter means I want dessert teas. All the candy teas! And then I calm down and go back to drinking regular teas after binging on flavoureds for so long.

Makes sense! There are a few I’d like to try in the fall, one being that green almond one that everyone seems to love

Hello!

I love tea. I love my mini-me daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

My new favourite tea company is A Quarter to Tea. I love the flavouring used and how it doesn’t seem fake, and the combinations are so delicious. Right up my alley.

My favourite teas are black, I love Laoshan Black and Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black tea from TTC. Also many of Teavivre’s black teas.

Butiki teas RIP, I loved how the flavours were subtle and not fake tasting and didn’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I am dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance. If anyone has some of this I would pay for it!!! It’s my number one all time favourite tea.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
