Oh yeah, loving this tea. The first steep only kinda hit the spot, but the second is filling in just fine although I might need to change my water filter or kettle because there is a weird water taste behind the tea today.

The other day I ground up some freeze dried bananas, put them into pancake batter, added some liquid smoke and topped the pancakes with maple syrup. It was delicious, just like this tea.

I’m on my second steeping of this today. I keep switching between this and Butiki’s Smoked Maple Banana. I’m having this with cream and sugar and it is very caramel like. It smells just like a rich creamy caramel and tastes like a lighter version of the scent. It is quite delicious and now my cup is empty. Time for another cup of SMB!

This is a really unusual tea for me to love so much, being that I’m a flavored tea kinda gal, but I do love it! There have been times when I have craved it’s malty tobacco flavors. So glad I stocked up on this when I was last in California! Tonight it is helping me through the holidays which are almost over, hopefully it won’t keep me up tonight since I’m drinking it super late. I hate this time of year and will be glad when it has past!

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

This tea has been in my cupboard for a while. Still tastes pretty good! I taste chocolate and a doughy flavor. There is almost a maltiness in there, a hint of coconut. It has a little sweetness of it’s own so I haven’t added sugar, but I bet it would be pretty decadent with some added. Maybe on the next cup.

Tried to give this tea some time to mellow out in my cupboard, but the orange is pretty strong still and has a little bite. The chocolate comes out well and I do love the combo of orange and chocolate. With a little cream and sugar this is a pretty good cup. It isn’t as decadent and delicious as some other orange/choco teas, but it is very enjoyable which is good because I still have a ton of it. Never. Buying. Tea. By. The. Pound. Again.

OMG! I made this way too strong! Dumping half the cup and refilling with water in an attempt to try to save it. I added a little sugar. The orange flavor is dominating. There are a ton of orange peels in this. I’m not able to pick out the blueberry. Not wowing me.

I think I’m reviewing the right tea. The version I have says it’s from Teas Of Hawaii and their website uses the same font and photos as Coffees of Hawaii.

Anyways…. this tea smells like steamed veggies. Peppery brussel sprouts?
First sip: Ack! Tastes like the water used to steam veggies!
Second sip: Ok, a little papaya in there.
Third sip: I get the tart tang that papaya has, but it lacks the sweetness that goes along with the fruit which really throws the association off.
Fourth sip: Adding sugar and okay… it tastes WAY more like papaya now!
This is interesting. I picked this up this summer while on the Islands, curious since I had never had a coffee cherry tea before. I might try this cold brewed and see if I like it better that way. It might make a good iced tea for the summer.

I’m not really tasting anything in this cup. I’m not sure if it’s just that the tea is older or if my tastes are used to much stronger flavors. It’s a little floral, but that is about it. :/

The Ovation EGs I got were very sharp in taste when I first got them. I decided to give them a while to settle down, they made their way to the back of my cupboard only to reemerge now. Now this tea seems a little on the weak side. I added a little sugar which rounds out the raspberry. The EG flavors are pretty muted which gives the raspberry a little room to come out. Adding cream knocks out the flavors a bit and leaves it tasting more like just a black tea. Not super exciting, but better with just sugar.

I think I bought a pound of this too!

I’m tempted to dump it all in the tub and take a bath in a giant cup of tea. It’s reasonable, right?

I’m not sure how I feel about guyusas. I’m not even sure how to spell it. It seems to have a very earthy flavor, almost tobacco like. The combo of vanilla, mint and lavender is very nice, although this cup seems a little heavier on the lavender than previous cups I have had. I wish I could hide in this cup. I can’t handle long winter breaks when I have no time off from my family to do my own thing. Save me Killer’s Vanilla! Save me from my spawn!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
