8 Tasting Notes
Ah a guy who usually hates coffee, I think I can rely on this tea for the caffeine boost the former would usually produce. Good taste, and like someone mentioned elsewhere here, there’s a bit of raspberry that really brings it full circle. Tastes kind of like a Terry’s Chocolate Raspberry.

Not sure how to feel about this one; it’s something I could see drank chilled in the summer rather than warm in the winter, like I’m enjoying it now. Like other reviewers have said, it’s a subtle melon taste with not much else to it; basic, simple and ultimately inoffensive.
Had this today during a Christmas shopping trip, and it definitely got me liking themed teas again. I usually shy away from anything Christmas/Fall-related, but damn the cinnamon and almond really provided a great taste; the apple also really rounded it out. There isn’t one huge dominant flavour, and I think that works well.
Got this tea on the way home from an appointment, and I really enjoyed it! David’s was great about filling up my travel mug, and by the time I stopped for some dinner and caught a train, it was just the right temperature for winter drinking.
I’m a bit picky with burning my mouth, so I like my tea at the 60-70% heat range after steeping; I’ve also been trying to drink more “single flavour” teas, and this was just awesome. Not overpowering, and does exactly what it says on the label. Simple, but not in a bad way.
Never been a fan of Earl Grey tea, but the underlying lemon taste made this one a winner. This is probably the first tea that I’ve been a stickler for the steeping time, though, since brewing it too strong definitely wasn’t something I wanted to experience. I’m all about the subtle flavours, and this one has it in spades.
