Thank you VariaTEA for providing me with so much of this one! I enjoyed sipping at it late Tuesday night while watching the newest Supernatural episode! It was sweet and yummy with cream cheese icing and everything.

Also what the frick frack was up with that episode! I watched it with Tre and we were just both in emotional turmoil over all the Garth stuff (he was too cute when he was angry/all wolfy) and then the fucking ending! AUIegdpISFCNBPdisgv! Plus of course Norse Mythology, which I love!

While I was out yesterday afternoon I may have went birthday card shopping and picked VariaTEA up a birthday card. Nothing expensive because I’m broke as balls, but still…

VariaTEA

Haha I might be planning a surprise birthday package…shhhh

VariaTEA

Also the end of the episode broke my heart a little

Yvonne

Oooh, I’ve seen this one in stores before. Thinking of picking it up!

Roswell Strange

God, I was SO bored without my computer, and then I think Tre noticed how mopey I was and offered to let me watch the new episode with him. It took me all day yesterday to remember I have Netflix on my 3DS, so I started watching Archer.

VariaTEA

Haha Archer. I watched some of that but then ended up rewatching supernatural instead :P. Yay for Tre letting you watch together!

Cavocorax

Have you guys seen Bob’s Burgers? Bob is voiced by Archer which is freaking hilarious. Also S3 of Archer was pretty great.

VariaTEA

I have an insane obsession with burgers. I have said this about many things I realize but burgers is definitely number one. My friends have even called me Burger More and typically give me Burger themed gifts. In fact when my friends talk about their favourite foods they call it “their burger” so I can grasp how much they like it. With all that said, I have never actually seen Bob’s Burgers which is a bit of a shame I think.

VariaTEA

Also while on the topic of burgers, if you have not already, you need to go to Burger’s Priest!!

Roswell Strange

I’ve seen a few episodes – totally didn’t make the voice actor connection, though. Now when I watch tonight after Tre’s claimed his laptop back I imagine that’s all I’ll be thinking about :C

Cavocorax

Burger’s Priest? Where the heck is that?
We found a good burger place on Yonge – Golden Star? Pretty good!

And watch it! If you like Archer. you might like it. The kids in that show are what make it so hilarious.

And sorry Roswell – that can be a little… disconcerting.

VariaTEA

There is a few downtown but I go to one up Yonge past York Mills. It is more expensive than Golden Star but so amazingly delicious. Plus they have a secret menu on their website with special burgers that are not listed in store and they act like they don’t know what you are talking about if you don’t name what you want. It is quite fun. I like the Priest burger or the Pope burger which is their regular burger and vegetarian option. So good!

Bio

Hello! My name is Kelly, though many people in the tea community call me Ros or Roswell.

I am a mid-twenties tea addict, blogger, and all around nerd. I grew up in the Prairies, but a few years ago I relocated to Quebec to pursue a career with DAVIDsTEA in the tea industry! I’m still working on getting my French language skills down…

My first introduction to tea, in any form outside of instant and bottled iced tea, was about seven years ago when I happened to stumble upon DAVIDsTEA while looking for a birthday present for a friend! I tried their Birthday Cake rooibos blend, and I’ve been hooked on tea ever since! In those seven years; I was introduced to the online tea community, expanded my interest in flavoured teas to include a deep love and appreciation for straight teas and traditional brewing methods, got a tea themed tattoo, started reviewing teas, amassed a sizable tea and teaware collection, became a TAC certified Tea Sommelier, & even came full circle by beginning a career in the tea industry with DAVIDsTEA!

I consider myself a Jack of all Teas, and strive to have a knowledge and appreciation of all tea types, formats, and styles of drinking. I don’t like to feel boxed in to just being a “flavoured tea” or “straight tea” drinker – my expectations may vary depending on the type of tea or how it’s been processed/prepared but if it’s good tea, it’s good tea no matter how it’s been made!

You name it, I probably drink it- and I’ll absolutely try anything at least once.

My default method of preparation is hot, Western style, and straight – but I’m not opposed to additions if I’m in the right mood. If I ever add something to a tea or use a different method of preparation I will ALWAYS call it out in the tasting note though.

I like to listen to music when drinking tea, especially when I’m brewing a large pot at a time or steeping Gongfu. Often I curate very intentional tea and music pairings, and sometimes I share them here in my tasting reviews. Music is something that I find can deeply affect the experience of having tea.

I’m also one half of the “tea and fandom” podcast GeekSteep where, weekly, we discuss newly explored fandoms over tea as well as try to figure out the perfect tea to pair with each fandom. You can find us on Spotify and Apple & Google podcasts.

Favourite flavour notes/ingredients: Pear, lychee, cranberry, cream, melon, pineapple, malt, roasty, petrichor, sweet potato, heady florals like rose, hazelnut or walnut, sesame, honey (in moderation), and very woody shou.

Least favourite flavour notes/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger, strongly spiced profiles (and most Chai in general), mushrooms, seaweed, chamomile, stevia, saltiness or anything that reminds me too much of meat that isn’t supposed to taste like meat…

Currently exploring/obsessed with: Sheng from Yiwu, Yancha (Qilan in particular), anything with a strong sweet potato note. Also, I need to try ALL the root beer teas! Searching for a really good caramel flavoured blend, ideally with a black tea base.

Please contact me at the instagram account listed below if you would like me to review your teas.

Currently I’m employed in the tea department of the DAVIDsTEA head office. While I’m still sharing my own personal thoughts on new & existing DAVIDsTEA blends, I am no longer numerically rating them due to the obvious conflict of interest. Any comments expressed are a reflection of my own thoughts and opinions, and do not reflect the thoughts and opinions of the company. Any DAVIDsTEA blends you currently see with a numeric score were reviewed prior to my being hired there and have not been adjusted since becoming a DAVIDsTEA employee.
