DAVIDsTEA Coffee Cake Tea | #24DaysofTea Day 5

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea Day 5 Coffee Cake

Welcome to Day 5 of the DAVIDsTEA #24DaysofTea event.  Now I wasn’t sure what to expect when I opened up the advent calendar and discovered the DAVIDsTEA Coffee Cake Tea.  I’m not a huge fan of coffee or cake, so while I do love black tea, I wasn’t sure how this was all going to mesh together.  Well first off, I got a coupon for $5 off my next purchase so that is working out well so far.  But then I went ahead and cracked this one open and good lord does the DAVIDsTEA Coffee Cake Tea ever smell like the greatest thing ever.  It smells so good that people at work can usually track my location and route through the office just by scent alone.

DAVIDsTEA Organic Serenity Now Tea | #24DaysofTea Day 4

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea Day 4 Organic Serenity Now

DAVIDsTEA Organic Serenity Now tea is a “soothing blend of lavender, strawberry and hibiscus” caffeine free herbal tea.  Beyond making me want to scream SERENITY NOW at the top of my lungs, a la Seinfeld, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one.  I mean it smells divine, but very fruity, which I don’t normally like all that much.  At least not in a hot tea.  But I’m willing to try anything once so I kind of just dove right in… Read More

ESQIDO Big City Nights Mink False Eyelashes & Companion Lash Glue

Esqido Big City Nights Lashes 1

Now even though I love all things beauty and makeup related I have never really ventured into the realm of false lashes.  My eyelashes are so curly that it tends to make application of false lashes near impossible.  And then when you do get them applied, they tend not to blend very well.  It’s a problem, but as far as issues I could have, it’s fairly minor.  But here’s the thing; I have always wanted to be able to rock a pair of false lashes!  For my first time wearing false lashes, I chose the ESQIDO Big City Nights Mink False Eyelashes!

DAVIDsTEA Genmaicha Tea | #24DaysofTea Day 3

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea Day 3 Genmaicha

DAVIDsTEA Genmaicha Tea is a traditional green tea blend that combines sencha with roasted rice.  Apparently it is called “popcorn tea” because it contains whole roasted grains of brown rice, some of which have popped.  You can actually smell the popcorn when you brew this tea, so the nickname really does fit.  I can see why it would be popular with a lot of people because it is a rather mild tea.  I think this tea would be great for someone who is new to tea.

DAVIDsTEA Jumpy Monkey Tea | #24DaysofTea Day 2

DAVIDsTEA Jumpy Monkey Tea

DAVIDsTea  Jumpy Monkey Tea is a rich yerba maté blend with coffee beans, cocoa nibs and white chocolate.  Dear lord does this one ever smell absolutely amazing.  To me it smells like coffee, which is great because I love the smell of coffee.  I don’t much like the actual taste of coffee, but the smell is amazing.  DAVIDsTea  Jumpy Monkey Tea is a stimulant tea, which means there is a lot of caffeine in it.  For those of you who need that jolt of caffeine in the morning, this is the tea for you.
