I like apricot, and this one smells nice. I decided to try it as a cold- brew. It has a light, creamy fruit flavour. Most refreshing.

Iced

Mmm… breakfast in a cup. There is a nice maple flavour, it’s creamy and not overly sweet. I haven’t really had good luck with maple black teas, but I like this one. (It was good with my toast, didn’t have pancakes).

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

I does smells like almond cookie, so I had high hopes for this. However the almond flavour isn’t so strong.
The black base is fine, just not what I was hoping for.

Mmm… coconut. It smells nicely like coconut. The almond/ vanilla flavour is more subtle. (This would be good to warm up in winter).

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA

Merlin tea time. Don’t think I’ve had a julep before. If it smells like this, I want one. The minty/ tropical scent is what interested me in the store. Mmm… the flavour is fruit and mint. Without the mint being too strong.

(Maybe I need to have it cold, with rum.)

I had the same thought about the rum!

It is really good cold, but I have no rum.

I haven’t had this type of mojito before. It smells really good. Like the Chiffon and coconut. While I’m used to mint, the flavour is a nice blend of coconut and citrus flavours. (Now I must try it iced.)

drank Cotton Candy by Della Terra Teas

This smells really good. Perhaps not exactly spun sugar, but still a very nice scent. The flavour reminds me of David’s Birthday Cake. Except the sweetness isn’t so strong, which works better.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

This is really good as a cold brew.

This tea smells like it is trying to be fudge. Doesn’t really taste like it though. I think other companies have spoiled me for chocolate teas. It is better with almond milk and rock sugar.

drank Strawberry by Adagio Teas

I like when they send me free samples. This happened to be one of them. Mmm… berries. The scent is nice. Kinda reminds me of jam, at first. And the flavour is more mild. Maybe needs vanilla (but I say that about many things).

This was something I got in the middle of summer. It smells so good, like root beer. The flavour is there as well. This was one of those teas that should be brewed more often iced, and a little sweet. (Took a bottle of it iced with me to a Fourth of July event… was so glad I did.)

Iced 5 min, 15 sec
