drank Jumpy Monkey by DAVIDsTEA

My mom is a big maté fan, so if she loves teas like this I should too, right?

Wrong… something about matés just comes off as musty-tasting to me. I wanted to like this, since I can no longer drink coffee I need something in the mornings to get me going. Jumpy Monkey just doesn’t appear to be that tea, guess I will have to stick with Jungle Ju Ju for the energy boost in the mornings.

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

As others have noted the smell is very medicinal, lets take a sip…

Hmmm… not unlike Raspberry Nectar, except I find the lemongrass much more tolerable in this. Not the greatest of flavours, but something about this tea just feels detoxifying! I like this so much better than some of the other wellness teas I have tried (Skinny and The Cardio, I’m lookin’ at you!) and it’s exactly what I need after a meat-and-junk-food filled weekend with the in-laws.

drank Caramel Spice by DAVIDsTEA

The initial smell is that of oranges, not getting a lot of caramel. So, how will it taste?

I tried to like this tea. I really did, but it just didn’t jive with my taste buds: too much orange, no hint of the caramel in the name, and an odd taste which I assume comes from the mulberries. Nope, could not like it. This tea and I are destined for separate lives, which is fine by me.

My sister-in-law had the first steep, I got the second and it was actually pretty decent. More cherry than tea, but tasty nonetheless.

Did I steep this wrong again?? It’s just not coming out as spectacular as everyone says it is!

If it helps, you seem to be finding it just about as spectacular as I do. :)

Hurray! I’m not alone.

Bio

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…
