drank Love Elixir for Her by DAVIDsTEA
253 tasting notes

Another tea I wish I could drink, but leaves my head aching and spinning.

I was so excited about this tea—it sounds delicious—but I won’t rate it since I can’t properly judge this tea flavourwise. From what I did taste, the licorice seemed to overpower the chocolate & strawberry flavours I was looking so forward to, which makes me sad since I absolutely cannot stand licorice in tea. It reminds me too much of Stash and their penchant for adding licorice flavour to absolutely every tea they have.

Sigh… hopefully you all have better luck with this tea than I did.

Faith, do you know what it is about certain teas that triggers a headache?

I’m wondering if it’s the “flavouring” since that seems to be the only thing that Alpine Punch & Love Elixir for Her have in common and those are the two teas I get headaches with.

Kay Kanada

Hmm, and it’s also sadly the hardest thing to actually track down and understand (secret recipes and all that…) Flavourings change from tea to tea, with no indication in the ingredients. Darn, if only you were affected by an easy ingredient, like hibiscus, that is very clearly indicated on the package. I hope that you don’t find any other teas that give you the same reaction!

Faith

So far so good, no new teas give me headaches.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
