Grape Freeze from DAVIDsTea. . . .

Everyone has that one (or if you’re me, like, a thousand) weird stories from your childhood. Now, most aren’t going to go sharing them for all the world to know– but sometimes, in the name of tea, awkward stories must be told. As a younin’, I LOVED all things fruit– real and fresh– of course, but fake fruity flavors, as well. All of it. Gimme. Around the age of 3 or so, I came down with a bad cold and needed some medicine. Knowing I’d spit out that nasty bubblegum flavored medicine in a heartbeat (sorry, mom), my mother played Read More

Chocolate Covered Almond from DAVIDsTea

It seems like forever ago since I drank a tea from David’s Tea. Today I’m sharing with you their Chocolate Covered Almond flavored Black Tea. This tea is NOT currently listed on their website but according to the package does NOT contain dairy. It claims that this is sweet, crunchy, and totally addictive. I would certainly agree that it IS a tasty treat! Cocoa, Carob, and Almonds are the addictive trinity here, friends! This tea also contains yerba mate, sugar, and flavorings. Aside from the yummy-goodness of the flavor of this tea I have to say that I was overly Read More

Tea with Popcorn? Oh yes please! #DAVIDsTea

Growing up in my house, popcorn was revered. It was The Ultimate Snack. I have the fondest, most sensory-specific memories of helping my mom toss kernels into the hot stir crazy machine, watching them circle around in sizzling oil until they were all popped and fluffy. We’d flip the machine upside down into its handy attached-bowl, and when we REALLY wanted a treat, we’d smother it in melted butter and big flakes of crunchy salt. HALLELUJAH. Or when we’d travel to my family’s cottage up north, we’d swing by the upstate Piggly Wiggly to pick out our traditional Midwestern-cabin-snack-food of Read More

A Jasmine Creme Brulee Delight! #DAVIDsTea

I have tried one other creme brûlée tea before, and while it was yummy, I think I prefer this one. This blend by DAVIDsTEA includes apples, rosehips, and jasmine green tea! I actually really like the addition of Jasmine because I think it gives a nice, refreshing twist to classic creme brûlée flavor. The smell of the dry leaf on this one reminded me of DAVIDsTEA’s caramel corn, I think it was because of the sweet/buttery scent of creme brûlée flavor and the apple pieces. I couldn’t detect the scent of jasmine in the dry leaf, but could smell it Read More

Tea Infused Chocolate. . . #DAVIDsTea

In honor of Easter, DAVIDsTEA brought back some old tea blends to celebrate, among which is their Chocolate Cake black tea. They also released some adorable tea-infused chocolate bunnies. When I saw them, I couldn’t resist and grabbed a milk chocolate bunny infused with the chocolate cake tea, despite not loving the the tea itself when I tried it in the past. Now that I am eating this little chocolate bunny, I can say I am happy I picked this up. Seriously, it is awesome. Often I find the tea-infused chocolates just taste like chocolate and that could have easily Read More
