drank Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

Okay Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake, up until now we’ve had a rocky relationship. I am determined to like you and you just wanna be a spicy, clove-y tea for me. And clearly I’m the problem since all of the other reviews mention all of the pumpkin/caramel/cheesecake flavours they get. So it appears that my taste buds need to get it together.

This time I’m trying it with some lactose-free dairy thing that my Mum’s been telling me to try and a buttload of vanilla agave. This time the tea’s much sweeter and creamier and I’m getting a small hint of pumpkin spice. But I still feel like I could get it to be better. Sigh.

I feel like everyone’s reviews of this are so eloquent and nice and I just pop in like a mad scientist who’s trying to get the “perfect brew”. So in other words, I feel like Belle’s father in Beauty and the Beast.

Everyone: oh I loved the caramel/pumpkin/cheesecake flavours!

I couldn’t figure out what was it that drove me to get a pouch of this when I was at a DavidsTea store. I think I chalked it up to it being my preference for oolongs. But after looking at it’s ingredients I figured out that it was because of the jasmine in it. I have been crazy for jasmine lately and I’m always looking to add more teas that feature it to my collection.

Anyway, I like this one. The lemon adds a refreshing kick to it and the jasmine is quite soothing. This would make a fabulous “sick day” tea.

And now to continue my hunt for a sweet potato tea. I’m super cranky that Adagio discontinued theirs especially since Cara’s Bilbo blend looked SO delicious. But I think Lupicia has one so I may order that. If anyone knows of any others, feel free to suggest them.

I’m not the biggest fan of rose in tea, but I’m absolutely in love with this. My newest tea cupboard staple.

I cannot believe how much I liked this. I like ginger alright enough but I’ve never been a big fan of ginger in tea. But this tea was DELICIOUS. So glad I got a pouch of it in DAVIDsTEA’s Cold & Flu Collection or whatever the heck it’s called.

Bought this at the Moncton store while the gf and I were heading back from our trp to Halifax earlier this week. I told the SA that I was looking to try more of DT’s white teas and this was one of the three she pulled down from the shelf.

I wasn’t sure how much I would like this since it smelled so sweet and I’ve been looking for more vegetal teas lately. This turned it to be a delight. It has a delicious caramel flavour to it and I really wish it wasn’t so expensive or I’d add it to my permanent collection.

I agree, it’s ridiculously expensive. This is a tea to snag whenever they have promotions where you get free tea when you spend an x amount of money.

Cavocorax

Yeah I totally abuse the system just to get this one free because it’s so expensive otherwise!

I’m at a friend’s place in Boston (just got back from Fenway where I saw Jay Z and Justin Timberlake woooo!) and I found this while rummaging around in her tea collection. I had this iced with a bit of sugar and it was so delicious! I don’t know if I just miraculously ended making “the perfect brew” of this, but it wasn’t bitter at all (even before I added the sugar). I’m sad because it’ll be awhile before I’ll ever be able to try this again but I’m glad I got the opportunity!

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
