Honestly I was pretty underwhelmed with this one. I thought that the flavours didn’t really come out, and near the end it got fairly bitter. I realize that that’s generally a symptom of over-steeping, but I’ve never had this problem with any of my other teas, green or otherwise.

I didn’t sweeten it since it has stevia in it, which I thought would do that for me, but apparently not. I’ll try again with sweetener and see if it fares any better.

drank Pink Flamingo by DAVIDsTEA

Wow! This tea is AMAZING! And they are not kidding about the pink – it’s almost a crimson. Beautiful! It’s very fruity tasting and has a nice zing of an aftertaste. I’m usually one to sweeten my teas, but generally like to try them at least for a sip without being sweetened, and this doesn’t really need it (although I may still try it, as I find it can bring out some more flavours). I’ll definitely be stocking up on this one! So far I’ve only had it hot, but I imagine it will be even better cold!!

drank Green & Fruity by DAVIDsTEA

I went into DavidsTea while I was walking around after work last week, and since I don’t need any new teas right now (I’m working to make room though!!), I decided to just get a cup of tea to go. I like green rooibos, so I decided to try one I hadn’t had before, and this was recommended. And boy was it tasty! I find that some teas with dried fruit in them don’t really carry the flavour through once steeped – they smell great but you can’t taste it. But this one really delivered! Once again, green rooibos has failed to let me down!

Wow! I really didn’t have any expectations for this tea, but is it EVER good! Great lemony-ness without being too sour. A delicious surprise!

drank Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I was really excited for this tea.. like.. REALLY. And it just did not live up to those expectations. I just found that there wasn’t really a distinctive flavour to it at all. I didn’t taste the chilis AT ALL. Boo. I’ll try putting a little more in it next time and see if that pumps it up.

drank Baked Apple by DAVIDsTEA

This tea isn’t bad, but it’s no Apple Pie (I think that’s what it was… it’s discontinued now). It just isn’t as good as I was expecting. Not bad, but not amazing.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

This is one of my all time favourite teas – when it came back to the shelves of David’s Tea again this fall, I almost jumped for joy since my supply was getting to the ends (even though I was trying to ration it!)!!

This tea is so warm tasting and full and.. perfect. It’s like a warm hug on a cool fall day (not to sound too cheesy). I have to stop myself from drinking this one exclusively and give my other teas a chance!

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA

This one’s alright, but weird since there’s not actually any tea in it! I almost wanted to just snack on it haha!!

My only real complaint about this tea is the MESS it leaves after it’s been steeped.. gross. But the flavour is great!!

Another staple in my household. It’s SO delicious. All I can say is try this tea! Iced or hot, it’s a good one, and we always make sure we have some on hand!

Another tea that I find to smell absolutely delicious, but am disappointed when I taste it. I tried to like it, I really did. But I just don’t. I find it doesn’t taste anything near to what it smells like, which is too bad.

Profile

Bio

I try to pretend I’m a tea snob, but really I’m not. I just like tea – as a child, my grandmother used to call me a “tea face”. That was back when I was drinking Red Rose with probably more milk and sugar than tea.

Now that I’m a big girl and drink loose leaf, I’ll admit that I still sweeten my teas – I used to try not to so I could feel more like a tea snob (haha), but then I realized I was being stupid and I should just make my tea the way I enjoy it!
