What stands out to me the most for this herbal infusion, is the price. For what you pay, you get a top notch cup of peppermint. The longest infusion (which is what I do for almost all of my tea) I’d do with this is 10 minutes. It gives it an eye-watering, warm, and powerful taste. I can also add that the tea is good iced when you add honey to it.

Definitely one the best flavored teas I’ve had from DAVIDSTEA. It’s AWESOME to say the least. The very smell of it is as delicious as it smells. The tea has subtle hints of coconut, the forefront having a nutty taste. My only complaint is that the black tea taste is a little lacking. Other than that, drink up and enjoy it.

This is a strange, mix of green/black tea with fruit. It’s unusual considering that the closest thing to compare this too taste-wise is cool-aid. The tea absolutely needs to be sweetened. Also, it can be over steeped because it has a green tea base. I can’t recommend it to everyone either. This would be more for newcomers to tea, or those looking to make a massive amount of iced tea for their friends and/or family.

It’s not a bad cup, just not great either.

I won’t be the first one to say that isn’t the best experience I had with Lapsang Souchong. However, the taste is definitely there: smoky and wicked strong. This one definitely is more fragrant smelling than the one I’m used to, but from what I remember in terms of taste, it was hard to stomach at first. The longer this one steeps, the better it gets. Don’t know what I can recommend for steeping time, because my leaves sat at the bottom of my mug. Try 5 min. to be safe.

This rooibos is delightful. The longer you steep it, the spicier it gets. If you enjoy good spices, everything in here compliments each other. Sweeten to your discretion. Makes excellent lattes, hot only.

I steep mine for about an hour, but for optimal taste, try 7-8.

Delightful! The taste is super crisp, and kind of nutty. Also, the tea carries many flavors extremely well!

This, and soy milk are completely wonderful together. On its own, the tea is perfect. This was the first unflavored tea I drank. Strongly recommend it.

A sensitive, but very fine cup of white. From what Teaopia offers in unflavored whites, this is definitely the way to go. Silver Needle is a fine tasting tea, but can be a little to plain for some palettes. I find this tea to be a nice balance between delicious and light. There are subtle hints of peach in the flavor, and the leaves themselves are beautiful, borderline sensitive.

Drink up. This tea is a delicacy.

I’m usually generous in my ratings. I like a lot of different teas, and I can appreciate different blends. I also really enjoy coffee, but tea is my niche.

On a side note, I’m not that keen on sweetening teas. I will do it where I feel necessary however. I usually mention this in my reviews.
