drank Banana Daiquiri by DAVIDsTEA
230 tasting notes

I went to Walmart and purchased two clear plastic Rubbermaid pitchers with black lids for my Site almost as soon as I was given the tea from DAVIDs. (I can’t Thank DAVIDs enough for their generosity, I am sure they are happy because their generosity has made 5 new DAVIDs customers, WHOLE FAMILY customers!) and I bought a clear glass botum.

I had the children help me to fill T-sacs with tea, and gasp! tea was spilt, but that’s life, at least we did not loose the whole 100g tin in one go! They helped to fold the bag over, and we tucked them into the top; as I snapped on the lid children were already screaming excitement: “Look! LOOK ERIN!! Yellow!! IS THAT THE TEA?!”(I purposely used hot tap water to start the steeping process) We placed the pitchers on the front step of our site and I explained to the kids: "If we leave the tea until after lunch it will make a perfect pitcher of tea. (please note only 3 T-sacs full of tea were used for each pitcher)

The children screamed out to the playground and played the morning away, when they came back to observe the tea before lunch they noted the vivid yellow colour of the tea. “Look that colour is the same as my Granny’s birthstone!” I asked: “Oh so Granny was born in November?” – “No just a long time-a-go”

At this point I put the pitchers into the fridge and told the kids we needed to cool the tea down so that it was “iced tea” and also let them know that when the tea was served they could ask for a taste first, if they were not sure, as well as “a splash of juice to sweeten” if they needed.

When snack time came this tea disappeared faster than the veggies and dip! I love that I am creating “little tea monsters” – It is my master plan for ruling the world! (insert terrible mockery of evil laughter here)

Needless to say the children want more of this tea next Summer Camp!

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
