9 Tasting Notes
I love this tea!! Smells amazing, tastes fantastic, almost exactly like blueberry jam! A bit of agave nectar and you’re good to go. I’d like to try this iced, and I’ve heard its good as a latte, so I’ll have to try it. You could probably eat the blueberries as is xD I like how it turns an odd color, similar to the green of the insides of a fresh blueberry.. or maybe I’m just going crazy. Anyways, its as awesome as it sounds.
I love Watermelon, so when I saw a watermelon flavored tea, I had to! I’ve only had this one iced, but it is so good! Steeped in my steeper for about 8 mins, poured over ice with a bit of agave nectar, HEAVEN! Refreshing, smells delicious, and doesn’t have any particularly overpowering taste of any of the fruits and they all compliment eachother wonderfully! My boyfriend even likes this one, and he hates tea :P It would be an awesome one for kids, if I had any!
Fantastic, but one thing – don’t steep it too long! I love Earl Grey and I love vanilla, so the first time I walked into a David’s Tea and they asked what kind I liked, my response? Earl Grey (It was really the only tea I drank until now) and when she showed me one with vanilla, I was in love. It took about 3 trips to David’s Tea for just a cup of the tea before I decided to buy a tin and some supplies :P It smells like black licorice, which I love, but the taste is like a rich, almost bitter (but not in a bad way) with a hint of vanilla. But be careful not to steep it too long, I left it for about 10-15 mins once by mistake and it was way too strong, bitter and sour and tasted exactly like a gross black licorice.. bleh! But otherwise, an excellent tea (:
Swampwater.. sounds appetizing doesnt it? I had smelled this one at David’s Tea about a month before I actually bought it, and I love this tea. Fruity, interesting and fun. I love roobios because you can steep it forever and it will never ruin the flavor (Organic cream of earl grey steeped too long is so gross). My favorite part is the fact it turns a disgusting color of green xD the little kid in me adores the little candy sprinkles. I love this one, naturally sweet, and definitely up there in my favorites :)
ohmygosh, this is fantastic. I’ve only used it for Iced Tea so far, and its perfect for that. I’d use it for regular hot tea, but I’ve got the mug and travel mug that have steepers with them so I use those at home or work :) I love this, it doesn’t leak, ever, its so easy to clean, a quick rinse and you’re good to go. Sometimes I add a little sugar or agave nectar right into it while its steeping, then I’m good to go :D this is a must have for any tea lover!
I was in David’s Tea last week with my boyfriend while shopping around for other teas (He doesn’t like tea, dunno why) when another lady was buying this tea, and he caught a whiff of it, turns to me and whispers “that tea smells phenomenal!” and oh sweet baby jesus does it ever! When I bought some this week, I tried it as iced tea first, it turns a lovely bright red, and oh so delicious, a bit tart, yet sweet at the same time, I have yet to try it hot, but my boyfriend did ask me to make him some iced Goji Pop to take to work, so I’m slowly getting him hooked on David’s Tea haha, anyways, its yummy, with just a lil bit of agave nectar, its fantastic! Mmm mm good :D lol
I love mint, but haven’t tried any mint teas other than the generic tetley brand, but this one is fantastic! The dry tea smells like spearmint gum, which I love, then steeped it definitely tastes spearminty but not overwhelming or bitter. I’ve heard people say it’s good iced too, but when I tried it I wasn’t a fan, but I think I steeped it too long and too strong haha, definitely a good tea though, excellent for when you’re not feeling well, as everyone knows, mint is good for stomach aches! :P
I very much liked this tea, a strong aroma, but definitely doesn’t taste as strong as it smells. A light banana flavor, but real banana, not fake banana taste. The tea leaves double in size when steeped, which I found slightly amusing xD I ate one of the dehydrated banana bits, definitely real banana! This tea is creamy and comforting, would definitely recommend it :)
Myself being Canadian and loving all things maple, this is a huge favorite of mine! When most people think maple tea, they think of a hot drink that tastes exactly like maple syrup. Come on people, really? This has a light maple flavor, just sweet enough, its warm and rich (the only word I can think of to describe it) and definitely good enough to drink all day long. I let mine steep for 10 mins + since I like my tea strong, also because I forget about it as I bring my steeper mug to work and make it there! Anyways, awesome tea, very delicious, recommend to everyone :D
