Oops I forgot to post Day 8

Here’s to Buddha’s Blend

Ingredients

White tea, green tea, jasmine pearls, white hibiscus blossoms, natural and artificial flavouring.

Verdict: disliked it. A lot. I don’t like this type of tea at all. I prefer flavoured with things like chocolate or fruit

Until later.

And we’re on lucky number 7

And the winner is

Organic Saigon Chai

ingredients

Organic: Black tea from India*, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, p ink peppercorns, cardamom. With organic vanilla cream and natural ginger and cinnamon flavouring.

Verdict: I enjoyed the smell more than I enjoyed the tea brewed. Maybe I didn’t steep it long enough. Seemed a bit bland to me.

Until later.

So here we are at Day 6

Organic North African Mint

ingredients

Organic: Green tea, ginger, peppermint, cardamom, licorice r oot, fennel, clove, black pepper.

Verdict: it’s my absolute favorite mint tea. I steep it longer than my fruit teas. It’s got just enough spice to balance out the mint. It’s smooth and comforting and calming. A total must have for your collection.

Until later.

Oops. I missed a day. I got home late and didn’t have time for tea.

So. Here it is Day 4

ingredients

Organic: Chinese green tea from Jiangxi and Fujian Provinces , scented with jasmine flowers.

Verdict: not much my cuppa Tea. I steeped on the low end to keep it mild. I drank it but I prefer the flavoured teas. This much reminded me of the tea my mom used to drink

Now it’s Day 5

ingredients

Black tea, lemon peel, sugar sprinkles (sugar, rice flour, p artly hydrogenated canola oil, shellac, titanium oxide, iron oxide, potato starch), sugar, cloves, natural and artificial flavouring.

Verdict: one of my favorites. I don’t have to drink it to know I love it

Until later.

It’s that time of day

Today on tap

A little info

ingredients

Apple, hibiscus, raisins, carrot, yogurt bits (milk powder, sugar, maltodextrin, modified starch, citric acid), beetroot, strawberry, rhubarb, natural and artificial flavouring.

Verdict: I should have known better. I am not a fan of fruit tea flavours when brewed hot. I generally ice my fruit teas. Today I was having it hot, so I only steeped it for three minutes. Usually anymore than that I can’t drink it hot because it’s too tart.

However, I do like this one very much.

Iced.

See you tomorrow

And so it continues

The next adventure

Here’s the skinny about today’s flavour

ingredients

Black tea, toasted coconut (coconut, sugar, dextrose, salt), coconut, pecans, cacao nibs, rock cane sugar, natural flavouring.

Verdict: this is already one of my favorite chocolate teas and I have lots of it. Smooth and sweet so you don’t need to add to it.

Until later.

Verdict: it’s a favorite of mine from calendars past. So much so I have a small tin of it in the house.

So stay tuned for the next 23 days as I make my way through the calendar. Fun to be had by all.

It is good to note that I am not paid by David’s Tea for this and opinions are all mine. Also I only drink all my David’s Tea black. There are brewing instructions on every one and they can be sweetened to your own liking.

Until later.
