Whilst reorganizing my tea collection last week, I rediscovered some forgotten tea, which is always quite a treat. It's honestly like shopping in a giant tea shop! My collection is mainly from DAVIDsTEA because when I first quit coffee, it was the closest tea shop to the office... and it helped me rediscover my love for tea. Plus, the options are rather fun! So one tea I rediscovered and decided to cold steep immediately was Hard Candy from the Summer 2015 collection, mainly because I remembered it being rather sweet and refreshing – perfect for this ridiculously hot week.
During one of my quarterly-ish tea stash perusals, I found one of my favorite flavored matchas – still unopened in its air-tight sealed bag. Years ago, before matcha became a "thing," DAVIDsTEA had come out with a blueberry matcha – and it was glorious. I had been saving this bag for a special occasion, but I recently found out that the company had brought it back for a limited time... so while I stock up, I allowed myself to finally open this bag. What a happy day.
I love rosé wine. I love rosé so much that I probably finish at least two bottles a month. By myself. But only in the summer. (Yes, I know I have a slight problem.) Therefore, when DAVIDsTEA introduced a tea called "Rosé All Day" last year, I knew I needed to get it.
It's officially cold steep season and I could not be more excited! I hate meal prepping, but I love cold steeping for the week. In the summer, my fridge is usually filled with mason jars and pitchers filled with cold steeped teas. I'm not a big fan of iced tea due to the ice diluting the tea, but I love drinking cold steeped tea. My favorite teas to cold steep are fruity teas – especially fruit infusions/tisanes, like DAVIDsTEA's Melon Drop.
Pear Blossom was part of DAVIDsTEA's Harvest Collection (Fall 2017), and I got it because it's supposed to taste like Anjou Pears – and I LOVE Anjou Pears. I love Anjou Pears so much that I ended up getting quite a few ounces of this tea... and didn't open the first two ounces until this week. I would usually cold steep fruit infusions, but I drank this tea hot last week since it had been so cold and wet – and it's absolutely delicious hot. I also currently have this cold steeping in my fridge, so I'll be able to update this review but I bet it'll be delicious cold as well.
