I really enjoyed this tea, especially since it had a bit of kick to it. The David’s clerk actually warned me of its spice, but I don’t think it was really needed; you get the nice fruity taste with something that’s maybe a 3/10 on the spice scale. Really good for these dull last days of winter.

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.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

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.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

Not a big Earl Grey fan, but this was subtle enough that it didn’t overwhelm my taste. I’m not particularly good with caffeine, and I found myself a tad jumpy after a couple cups of this. Definitely good in a travel mug to start your day off.

Cream of Earl Grey by DT is better than this sounds, have you tried it? It’s also medium caffeine (I’m sensitive too & don’t mind it). I mixed half & half of it with regular DT earl grey & that was awesome.

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

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.
