drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
74 tasting notes

Let me start by saying that I’m actually a fan of this tea… minus one caveat; the smell. The good news is that the smell goes away completely IF you add creamer. With sweetener and creamer, it tastes like juicy mango with sweet cream. It’s a Mango Lassi without the tart bite (sourness) that comes with yogurt.

Ok, so I was reluctant to post what I think this smells like, but I feel that I should add it in case someone orders it and is really disappointed… (IMO) it smells like cat spray. There, I said it. Just add creamer before you try it for a better first impression.

Hubby and I find we have that same reaction to a lot of peach scented things… So glad we agree not to bring any of them into our home. I’m afraid I might not have been as patient with the tea as you were in trying creamer to see if that helped. Glad it worked for you, sounds like it made it enjoyable.

I’m afraid I’ve been a little fearful of peach & mango teas for he same reason, but so far I have been pleasantly surprised.

Smells like Christmas but tastes like Thanksgiving.

What I mean is that it smells fresh and crisp which makes me think of winter. The blend has the same berry and cinnamon aroma that I associate with the holidays…possibly because stores always set out the cinnamon pine cones and dried fruit garland near their entrances. Flavor wise, the cranberry and cinnamon are the most distinct. This tastes better with sweetener but it still feels like it’s missing something…

Elegant. This tea has light floral and fruity flavors plus a nice rose oil aroma. The green tea base is like a whisper in the background.

My daughter took a sip and said that the name and flavor of the tea made her think of a Doctor Who episode – “Angels Take Manhattan.”

Thank you for sharing this in the TTB CarolWho !

drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea

Without sweetener, this is a nice tea but with sweetener and cream (…yeah, I know) it tastes so much more coconut-y. I just need to find a decent pineapple oolong (maybe even add a dehydrated cherry) so that I can concoct a tasty Pina Colada blend.

Another yummy tea shared by TeaTiff in the TTB!

Surprisingly light tea since, for me, white chocolate usually invokes expectations of “thick and creamy.” Sweetener is necessary to taste the white chocolate and adding too much cream can easily mute the chocolate flavor.

I love banana bread and the flavor of this is spot-on DELICIOUS! Add sweetener and it’s like drinking desert from a cup. I let my daughter sample it and she requested that we order some asap, so I really hope that he re-blends this soon.

Thank you NayLynn for adding this to the TTB! This has been a lot of fun…now I have to look up who added the others. :))

drank Vanilla Excellence by Harrods

I haven’t sampled many vanilla teas so brewed a small sample of this from the TTB. This tea has a strong black tea base with a subtle vanilla flavor but might taste better with a rounded teaspoon scoop (maybe almost 1.5 teaspoon). I was really surprised how strong it tasted after just a 3 minute steep. I wish that I’d read the tasting notes before trying it because I think that adding creamer would’be elevated the flavor of vanilla.

Ok, this is probably going to sound weird but this tea tastes like a Hawaiian Lei smells…
I was surprised to taste very light floral notes more than pineapple but it’s good.

A Rooibos tea with a strong flowery, almost perfume-like, flavor at first sip. Adding a sweetener makes the delicate perfume taste linger longer and it makes me feel like I’m drinking Eau de toilette.

Courtney sent me a sample of this (thank you!!) and it’s very tasty! I didn’t even have to add sugar…weird.

I admit that I wasn’t sure what to expect because the tea looked like debris from a cracked pecan. The strawberry flavor is spot-on and if anything maybe adding a dash of cream would be all I’d suggest.

Sounds yummy… Maybe good iced ?!?

EvaGrimm

I’d add a little sugar if I decided to cold brew it but it would definitely be delicious iced!
