DAVIDsTEA Matcha Advent Calendar – Day 8

I made this one as a latte and it was sooo good. I didn’t think I had this before, but now I am seeing its rated so I guess I did. But it definitely didn’t taste like it did today.

I used half the package and just tossed it directly into 8 oz of milk while it was being frothed/warmed. The end result was so decadent and dessert-like. It also was really familiar and if I am being honest I initially thought it reminded me of some kind of milkshake I have had in the past but then I placed it as the maple cream in the maple cookies that I used to love growing up. Sort of Canadian oreos, if you will. And this was the sweet and creamy and delicious centre. Yum!

Maple cream cookies were the best!

Ooh I’ve had those, the sandwich ones that are shaped like a maple leaf?! So good.

VariaTEA

@Cameron B, yep!

I am glad you both knew what I was talking about here. I was worried the reference would be lost.

I need to buy those again. I’m sure the ones here aren’t actually Canadian (probably from Vermont or something) but they’re so good! I adore maple things. :3

Cameron B.

Just thought I would add – I bought a box of maple cream cookies and they are, in fact, imported from Canada! :D

Courtney

Yay! Imported from Canada!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
