drank Orange Glow by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

Another daunting day of interviews that started earlier than any human should be actually thinking after a long vacation. Thankfully today was not planned to be as busy as yesterdays adventures were. It did start with an early interview at 8 am.

I got this tea as a sample with a recent online order (I wish they gave these out in store when we bought items in person), and since I was looking to try something new this morning I opted to put it into a teabag for my travel mug.

Dried it has a very sweet orange aroma. It brews a deep red colour with a ginger and pumpkin scent. I absolutely loved the taste of this since it reminds me of my favourite season and eating cooked pumpkin at dinner (yes I eat it like squash and put it in pies and cakes and cookies… I digress into thoughts of fall).

Sad part about all of this, I need to make this part of my shopping list because I need more than just a sample cup, I need many days of this tea in my life.

I am happily married to my husband who definitely is the chatterbox of our 20 year relationship. Together we have three rambunctious children 2 daughters and a son who is stuck in the middle of the girls. We also have a 17 year old fur baby (cat) who likes to the rule house and tell us at midnight it is time to pay attention to him rather than sleep.

I am an elementary school teacher, teaching grade 3/4 with a mixed bag of learning abilities and educational needs. I love my job and share my passion for learning with my students.

I have been a tea drinker since I was allowed to take my first sip, which was very early in life and was mostly the Rose Hip and Earl Grey my grandma would brew by the pot full and serve when company came over. Later in my teen life (once I had more choice of my own) I fell in love with peppermint and green teas. I love hot brews and iced teas. Now I will try just about any kind of tea as long as it doesn’t contain nuts or gluten (damn allergies ruin everything).

I prefer my tea to be natural, meaning without any added sweeteners or cream/milk. I want to be able to experience the tea as it was intended.

My Rating Scale:
0-20: OMG what did I just put into my mouth! I cannot keep this it must be trashed or rehomed.
20-40: Horrible, not something I will drink again, but someone else may still like it
40-60: Ok, nothing overly special, it is kept around because others like it
60-80: Good, either I or someone else in the house liked it
80-95: Great! Will drink this occasionally and will keep it around
95-100: Absolutely amazing, and must keep it in stock at all times!

I invite you to join me as I go through my stash and share my thoughts and opinions on the teas as I and my family drink them (or eat them as my 3 year old says when I use matcha in icing)
