drank Southern Belle by DAVIDsTEA

Was very disappointed with this one! I steeped according to directions and I just don’t know if it’s me or what. ……Actually I just went and read the package to see what was in it and I see now that it has Stevia leaf in it. That explains everything…. I mentioned before I am finding out, I am not a fan of Stevia. I think this is another I will pass on to my daughter and see what her take is. Here is another tea coming your way Amanda!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Oh my goodness! This is some yummy tea! I got on a Chai kick tonight and this one really did it for me! This smells delicious in the package and while it is steeping as well. It is definitely one of my favorites so far. It certainly lives up to its name. There is a wonderful blend of flavors with no overwhelming spicyness to it. Like pumpkin pie in my tea cup! This is a tea I will purchase again. I can’t wait to visit David’s when I go to NYC in August with my daughter! Yay!

I just visited the DAVIDsTEA store on Bleecker St in NYC, and the staff were sooooo nice! I definitely recommend that location! It was one of the highlights of my whole trip. :)

I just made a cup of this and I am surprised I like it as much as I do! It smells super spicy in the package and it is a pretty spicy cup of tea. However I can’t distinguish any specific chocolate flavor whatsoever.So if anyone is looking for chocolate goodness not sure this would be the best pick. But it is a nice chai and I think it will be tasty in the winter.

I have been waiting for these cute little samples from The Persimmon Tree to arrive all week! Well they came today and I decided to try the Peach Apple Crisp first. I really like this a lot. It is very smooth tasting to me. I can’t definitively say I can taste the peach or apple but the combination is nice. It could be a tiny bit “peachier” for my liking but I think I will try it iced next to see if it tastes fruitier that way. This company has $1.00 -$1.25 samples so it is a great way for me ( as a new tea tester/drinker) to try lots of different teas without buying a whole bag of something I don’t like…. Like red rooibos or honey bush …. But that is a different story.

drank Silver Needle by Adagio Teas
38 tasting notes

I liked this tea a lot. It was light and smooth. Satisfying! Though I haven’t experimented with any other brands of Silver Needle to compare it to.

Teavivre has an excellent Silver Needle that is very affordable. Then again, all their teas are delicious and affordable, haha!

Thank you so much for the recommendation! I really mean that. At this point in my tea journey it has been a lot of hit and miss. I just tried the Siver Needle from The Persimmon Tree and it tasted … Old!
Thanks again!

CHAroma

No problem. I actually have a lot of Teavivre samples if you want to try some for free. Send me a PM if interested. I think I’m out of the Silver Needle though, but I have a lot of their other teas.

I am a new tea drinker so I don’t have all the official terminology down but I will simply say, I did not like this tea at all. I was extremely disappointed because with a name like Blueberry Jam, I expected something amazing. I have never tasted or knew anything about Stevia prior to tasting this tea but I know now. It instantly made me sick to my stomach. I tried it both hot and cold and it was the same disturbing taste. I made my daughter iced tea with it and she felt the same about the Stevia. Not sure what to do with the rest of the bag!

Amanda

I think you should give it to your daughter. She’ll get used to the stevia :)
Thanks Ma!

Don’t feel bad, I don’t like some types of artificial sweetener. I use splenda or I’d be huge! I drink a lot of tea! I’ve lost weight since I started drinking tea which in my case was a goo thing. Sometimes it’s not only the sweetener you don’t like but artificial flavoring that can taste sour. As you taste more, you’ll notice more. If you want some samples PM me (personal message above…the envelope)…

CHAroma

Ooooh, Bonnie’s found you! You’re in good hands now. ;)
