Yeah, so they’re selling this in the store now as a big idea, so since I’m working on sipdowns and I had a bit of Big Apple and a smidgen of Forever Nuts left, I decided to give it a go this afternoon.

It’s supposed to taste like apple pie.

It tasted like apple cinnamon, but for me there was something very important missing – the pastry note.

It was perfectly fine as an apple cinnamon tea, I couldn’t really taste any white tea from the Big Apple in it.

Ultimately I’m realizing I’m not the hugest fan of herbals, and that’s what this seemed like to me. I also noticed a film in my cup which I suspect came from Forever Nuts, a tea I used to love when I first came into this world (the world of tea, I mean), but now was just happy to sip down.

Davidstea is very much “Meh” to me lately. I think I have to sell off a bunch of my stash. I have so many.

On to the next!

Sorry to hear you’re a little disappointed with DAVIDs. I’m sorta in the same boat, even though I rush out and buy samples of all the new teas as soon as they come out. They just fall flat.

The teaware is adorable though.

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.
