This tea smells fantastic, but I’m not a huge fan of the flavour. I’m not a huge coffee drinker, but would prefer a cup of coffee over this tea, which is disappointing.

Edit: I tried this tea again with some milk added and it made it taste much better!

I DO NOT like any non-flavoured green tea. But? This one is actually very delicious. Usually the only way I’ll drink unflavoured green tea is if my husband makes a pot without asking what kind I want. But I’ll actually pick this one! It tastes like popcorn! It’s got a nice almost nutty flavour to it.

drank Pina Colada by DAVIDsTEA

I have to be in the right mood for this one. It’s not bad but I’m not always up for coconut. Good for when I’m in the mood though.

drank Lemon Cream Pie by DAVIDsTEA

Oh this tea. It is SO delicious! It’s like a mug of dessert – and I like to give it a few infusions too since it’s a rooibos. It’s a great one!

I was quite surprised by this tea. I didn’t expect to really like it, but it’s actually pretty good!

I got this tea after a suggestion of using it for allergies. Of course I got it at the tail end of allergy season, so didn’t really get to put that theory into practice, but we’ll see next year I guess. It’s a pretty spicy tea, but good for every once in a while!

My husband and I both really like this one! It’s pretty tasty. I generally dream a lot anyway, so I can’t say if it did anything for me, but he swears he’s had some vivid dreams after drinking this one!

I want them to bring this one back!! I;ve got a little over 50 grams left : (

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

When I first got this tea, I tried it and thought it was alright, then kind of forgot about it. But I tried it again recently, and you know what? It’s actually pretty darn good! It’s really got some great flavours in there that really come through. I sweeten my tea, so I’m not sure if that’s what helped, but after giving it a second chance, it’s become part of my regular list of go-to teas!

drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
20 tasting notes

This tea is pretty nice, and it’s a good one for a long day in a cold office since, being an oolong, you can re-steep it several times. I agree that it takes some getting used to, but I quite enjoy it now.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 30 sec

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
20 tasting notes

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!

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!
