I bought this tea from the 2 for $5 deal… And it is good. Maybe not top 10, but it’s good. I can taste the coconut and almost a pineapple taste. I don’t even know if it has pineapple but I am getting a hint of it. It is subtle but well worth the $2.50!

This tea is confusing, I don’t know what I am tasting… on one sip its cinnamon, the next is licorice, sometimes I get ginger. Also I am getting a bit of “soap”. So its not great, but not horrible either. Not something I would replace but I am glad I tried it.
I am editing this to add… I couldn’t finish it. The soap taste got stronger and stronger as it cooled. Had to dump the tea out.
Another great tea from DT. Since the warmer (barely) season has arrived I have been craving more fruity teas and less of the heavier winter teas. Which is all well in good till I realized that I had no fruity teas left in my cupboard. So, I bought this one and a few others; Berry Good, Coco Lemon Thai, Bollywood Chai and this tea. The smell was nice and light. The taste is even better. I love the lime here, it is lemony without it begin overpowering. It is creamy and good.
oh my yum…. I am so glad I tried this tea and did not get discouraged by the smell. Not that the smell is bad, it just reminds me of Thai food, good to eat not to drink. The taste is another story, it is so good. Nice lemon and coconut flavor. I also really like the ginger in this tea. It makes my stomach feel better. I think this tea would be great after a big meal.
I will be buying more of this tea soon. I don’t think 20g will last me long.
Ummm. Not sure how I feel about this. I can taste the fruit and the chocolate but not a strong flavor of either. There is not much ‘fire’. I also think I over steeped this which is really not the teas fault but it did affect the taste of the tea.
Incidentally I bought the Teavana Tea Tumbler which I hoped would be a good replacement to my Timolino. Basically, I was hoping it wouldnot be as good as the Timolino. I think I like it, it keeps the tea hot but not scaling hot. I also added an ice cube inside which might have helped keep the temp to a drinkable temperature.
I had this tea for a much needed afternoon pick me up. I like it! There was a nice mango taste with something else… Maybe peach? It was enjoyable but a bit unforgettable. It tasted a bit like Pom Tango but not as good.
I love strawberry teas and this one from Teavana does not disappoint. It is still not as good as the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait from Davids but still good. It has a sweet cream flavor that I rather like. It tastes like a warm strawberry yogurt. Again not as good or as cheap as the tea from DT so changes are I won’t be buying it again, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
Yum! This was super good and a great cup of morning mate. It was like having a water down version of a hot cup of cocoa. I added a splash of milk to make it creamier. I think, although, I like it it is not something I need to have every day. It will be enjoyed but probably not replaced once its done. I have just too many other teas I must try before this one is replaced.
Had this this morning and it was perfect. It was refreshing and invigorating. I loved the mango with the hints of pomegranates. I had it in my Aladdin mug so it might have overstepped, but it didn’t not make the tea bitter. It was a great juicy tea!
I had a long day at the science centre with about 7000 kids…. Needless to say I needed a cup of tea when I got home. This tea called my name.. It smells amazing. It tastes really good to. Sweet coconut with a smooth texture. Reminds me of Coco Lemon Thai but more subtle. I really like it.
Went to David’s today and bought 20 g of all the new teas, plus 100 g of Strawberry Rubarb Parfait… I tried copabanana first, the dried smell is so good, bananas galore. The first sip was okay but not great. I think I was getting more coconut than banana, but as it cooled it got better. The banana went back to the front and the other flavors took a step back. I think I like it more than Banana Dream Pie (DT) and Choco Banana Foster (Teavana). I will be adding more of this tea to my stash.
I have had this tea a few times but have yet to write about it. First few times it was okay…. not bad but not memorable. Today however, I am really liking it. I don’t really know if I steeped it differently, the only thing I know I did this time was add a tsp of rock sugar. Maybe the rock sugar brought out the sweet flavor of the caramel.
A nice smooth and sweet tea.
I got this tea for my 8 year old who really wanted to try it iced. I made my cup hot as a night time treat. The smell scares me, I am certain I will not like this tea. It smells odd. Taste: yup, don’t like it. It tastes a bit like soap or aftershave. I can’t place it but I really hate it. Darn. Hope it is better iced.
This tea is weird…. It is sweet and tart, cinnamony and fruity. It tastes like a mishmash of favors, yet I don’t hate it. No, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. It is hitting the spot tonight as my nighttime tea. I am sure I will have no trouble finishing my 25 grams.
Having this tea right now and all I can think is…. wow, love the color. The brewed liquid is awesome, gorgeous cherry red color. The leaves are very pretty too, I see big chunks of dried fruit, cherries and pineapples. Stepped it for about 4 minutes instead of the recommended 2. I tend to forget that I am making tea and always forget to set the timer.
Okay so taste…… its interesting, it tastes just like cherry cough drops. hmm, not sure I can get past that thought. It tastes like someone melted a Cherry Halls into my cup. Not my favorite, and not something I will buy again, but I am sure I will finish what is in my stash.
Lets start by saying I don’t like rum, which makes me wonder why I even bought this tea. I love steepster for just that, guiding me to a tea that I would never get because of its great reviews.
I am happy to report that I really like this tea. The leaves are pretty and smell sweet and buttery. I steeped it for a really long time, no idea how long, maybe 10 minutes. It is absolutely delicious. I don’t taste the rum, I do get a creamy buttery taste with tiny hints of coconut. I had it straight but will try it with milk and rock sugar next.
Second tea tasting for today…. Loved the smell of this tea at the store. So nuttyandsweet. The taste fails a bit to wow me. It’s just okay. I realize now something I don’t like about teavanas teas…. The pieces are so big that you end up buying 50 grams of filler which does not give you much tea. In the end you add a teaspoon which is just not enough. You really need 2 or 3 teaspoons just to make a decent tea otherwise it’s weak and bland. On the other hand if you add a couple of tsp you realize that 50 grams doesn’t really give you many cups. 5 if you are lucky.
Okay so rant over back to the tea…. It’s okay, weaker than I want. It tastes bit like a cinnamon bun. I am getting a light cinnamon a hint of nuts. Again I have to compare it to DTs tea. This one makes me think of Forever Nuts. The latter is much, much better.

Went to Teavana today for the free cup of tea, and dropped $40. yikes. I bought this tea because I really like the smell of strawberries in tea. It is fruity and tart and sadly forgettable. It does not compare to my favorite strawberry tea from David’s Tea, Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. All in all its okay, next time I will add more tea leaves, maybe this will help. Oh and I also bought some rock sugar which I added a tiny bit while it steeped. The sales lady said that the rock sugar enhances the flavor of the tea. Not sure I believe it, but it does give it a pleasant sweetness.
Made this tea today to take to work, had a couple of sips hot while driving there. Hot is not bad, the problem is that it tastes just like orange juice which really I didn’t want hot. Now it stayed in my locker for a couple of hours and I didn’t have time to drink it… when I did it was awesome. It was refreshing and delicious. It also gave me a nice little pep from the mate. I will definitely be having this tea cold again.
I should also add that the tea leaves smell ridiculously good. I can smell them all day long.

Had this tea this morning with happy anticipation. First sip tasted just like cream of earl gray, I don’t get any pumpkin. As the water cooled I started to get hits of pumpkin. It’s not bad, but not as awesome as I had hoped. I blame the splash of milk and will be trying it straight next time.
Went to the tasting today at David’s Tea…. Did anybody else go? Tasted: vanilla orchid, pineapple oolong and the new coco lemon Thai. Didn’t like any. Bought: main squeeze, buttered rum, pumpkin chai, creme brûlée and strawberry rhubarb parfait.
This tea is amazing! Didn’t think I would like it since quite honestly I don’t like strawberry rhubarb pie. The leaves smell really good, just like it tastes. Very strawberriesh. As soon as I added the water the liquid turned this awesome color. Omg, cannot express how good this tea is. I am kicking myself for not getting 50grams. Will definitely be adding this to my permanent collection.
