Morning Ginger

Another tea from Katie!

Morning Ginger. Which I'm reviewing because, yet again, I'm sick.

Now I don't know all of the ingredients, so, I'm just guessing off of what I COULD see. There was fennel, lemon grass, chamomile, and ginger.

Overall, this tea was actually good. Not too heavy on the ginger, and nice and soothing as well. I would have liked a little something to add some sweetness or spice to it. I just can't place WHAT.

Thumbs up mother fuckers.

After 7

I got this tea from Katie, and it's called After 7. I have no idea where it's from or what type of tea it is. It looks and smells like a rooibos, but we'll let my mouth decide.

Well, it tastes like a rooibos, with a hint of peppermint.

It's nice, it's refreshing, it would taste good cold as well!

It's good, and I mean, it's sort of after 7...am.

White Nectarine

Ingredients: Apricot, white tea, blackberry leaves, safflowers, natural nectarine flavouring.

Before I being, I would like to take a moment to bitch about something that DavidsTea has been doing quite often... LYING! Gr!
I am so sick of a tea being named a certain thing -this one for example, White Nectarine- and then that ingredient is only a flavouring and not the actual fruit -White Nectarine's featured fruit is apricots. WHAT?! 
Their Key Lime tea did the same thing, which made me so angry I still haven't tried it.
DavidsTea, please! Stop with the flavouring and just use the ACTUAL FRUIT.

Let's begin.

I love nectarines. I will choose them a thousand times over peaches, or nearly any other fruit for a snack. I suppose it is safe to say that they are my favourite fruit. But it was not only this that made me excited to try this tea, it was the smell! By the gods, does this tea every smell beautiful!
My brother was amazing and bought this for me because I was short on cash and was so in love with the smell.

Such a gorgeous and robust flavour. While it definitely tastes more of apricots than nectarines, it is love at first sip.
This just might be my new favourite fruit tea.

The blackberry leaves blend so nicely with the apricot, and while the white tea is slightly hidden in the background, it still adds to the flavour very nicely.
Incredibly smooth and fruity without being intrusive on the natural, leafy flavours.

Everyone, this tea. This tea!

Aaron!! You are the BEST!!

Happy Steeping,
Get your butts to DavidsTea and get yourself some of this beauty before it is all gone!

Bear Valley Rescue: Abby

Abby Jan 23/15
Abby is a pretty little lady! And I do mean fairly little. She only measures 14 hands! (That's about 4.7 feet at the shoulders). She's not that old either, only about 11!
Even though she was rescued from a hoarding situation in 2008, she's friendly. She came to the rescue pregnant! Her baby, River, was a little mule.

She also is missing the tips of her ears, we believe that that happened because of frostbite.

She currently has no one sponsoring her.

Contact Bear Valley!

Donation (cheque, money order, paypal, and ATB cares

payment methods all available!)
You can also sponsor a horse monthly or through one time donations!

Whomp I got busy

Well...I'm sorry this is embarrassing.

I had teas planned. I had GOALS.

Then I got too busy and too demotivated due to adult things to actually do them.

I'll be back in action next week.

Marketplace Spice

I decided to have a beautiful rooibos that I got for Christmas from my bff Katie.

It was smooth and just the right level of spicy and creamy. Adding a touch of cream would have made it 1000% perfect.

Like omg I have no words

Sorry this is so short but I 100% forgot

Lots of love,

Chanakara Chakra Tea - Light blue - Vanilla Honeybush

From the Chanakara Chakra tea collection.

Ingredients: Organic honeybush, orange peel, calendula petals, natural flavor of vanilla honey, safflower

This is a really delicious rooibos-tasting tea. You can really taste all of the flavours: orange, vanilla, honey... but it does not cover the tea itself.

I am quite the fan of this one. And it really helps my sore throat at the moment.

I will be using the next six weeks of posts to cover the rest of the Chakra teas

Happy Steeping,

Bear Valley Rescue: Phoebe

Phoebe is a grey mare who is about 10 years old this year! She came to Bear Valley as part of a 2010 SPCA seizure of 26 horses. When this pretty little Arab came in, she was pregnant but sadly, in February 2011 she lost her foal.
She can be quite nervous, so while she is halter-broke, she is not foot-broke (which means).
A few years ago, in 2012, she hurt her eye, but the vision was able to be saved thanks to treatment.

Cream Caramel

This is a green tea blend from Tea Desire. Cream Caramel!

I haven't tried it before this review, so everything is up in the air at the moment. When I opened the bag I smelled caramel, but it was almost overpowered by the green tea's scent. Which concerns me greatly.

My love for caramel must be greatly known far across the world by now (here's looking at you all of our Russian viewers!)

This just in. It tastes really good.

Light and caramelly and yummmm

I'm going to go drink it all because of reasons
