Backlog Advent/Sipdown

First tea this week to allow me a moment to think on it. My wife wanted to play a game of 500 Rummy and drink coffee.** It was nice to have a moment where we both had energy (physical or mental) to play cards. I will note that I’ll avoid rating this based on the last cup, due to getting all ‘bits’ and little tea. This was essentially sugar crystals, very very little leaf, and white chocolate flakes. If memory serves me well, I do believe I liked this whenever there was a better balance of material.

**Tea has been one of those automated processes which I do to manage. My wife has been sick since Tuesday (Urgent Care on Wednesday to find out the issue) and work wasn’t allowing me the time to get stuff handled. But that’s life, right? Thankfully she’s been on the mend and finding the energy to eat a little more and have her first cup coffee today. She said that when one feels as she has, Green Tea + Ginger + Honey is ideal, but once you’ve started to recover, it’s a mixture which makes you think of illness.

Day 6 DAVIDs Tea Advent Calendar 2023
My first suprise was the muddy color after steeping. I thought someone had added milk to my tea while I was out of the room. This is a very sugary blend! Not as minty as I expected but sure does remind me of a candy cane crushed topping. I enjoyed this tea. Not sure I would purchase gain but definitely would drink again.

It wasn’t as minty as I would like it to be, I steeped it for about 4 minutes and I used 200 degree water like it said, I also used one perfect spoon. I’m trying it Iced now which it tastes a bit better but it makes a really weird white film on the top of it.

Flavors: Mint

So I had this from my holiday tea sampler for the very first time and was looking forward to trying it. There was a similar blend from Teavana years ago I think. Smells great, tastes great, indeed reminiscent of whatever blend that was. But oooof, the stomach ache I have now is a bit much from just tea. After looking at the ingredients which admittedly I should’ve done before, white chocolate is the second one listed after the tea itself which means there’s quite a bit of it in there. Drat. I’ll take a lactase pill next time.

Drank this tea 2x but didn’t want to do two tasting notes… each with 2 DT PS as hot plain latte on 1/1/21 to sip down my opened bag of this tea.

Woot woot for sipdown :)

Thanks Martin! I’m going to be counting as bags/tins/samples of tea, I have so much tea enough to last a lifetime and it’s not organized enough to really know sometimes if I’ve finished the tea completely (CCC I know I have a small grocery bag with more). Something is better than nothing. LOL

Day 6 of my DIY 24 Days of DAVIDsTea!

Hot latte!

I really didn’t expect to have Santa’s Secret & Candy Cane Crush back-to-back… what an ironic coincidence. But I suppose that was bound to happen, right? Candy Cane Crush tastes like the result of combining white chocolate and candy canes, then liquifying the mixture. It’s sweet, creamy, minty, and as a latte, it’s such a rich, festive tasting beverage. As a fan of both candy canes & white chocolate, my thoughts on this tea are already pretty biased. But just like Santa’s Secret, I don’t ever really crave or reach for CCC outside of the holidays, but still enjoy wholeheartedly when that time goes back around.

Very cute but too overbearing to be the staple candy mint tea. Would not repurchase.

additional notes: Sipdown. Not enough of a deep black tea for me AND the snowflake sprinkles are cute but they do not dissolve AT ALL even with boiling water for many minutes. eh. I’m glad this was just a sample. Lowering my rating of 77.
