I love a good citrus tea. When I first saw the label for this, I was overexcited. The smell is excellent – just a nice orange burst mixed with vanilla.

It steeps to a rosy orange. Very pretty. I was surprised by the taste. While I got the orange-y notes and the mellow rooibos taste, it tasted a bit like bubblegum, which is not what I was expecting.

Great iced.

drank Azteca Fire by Teavana

It was a long and good night last night. I needed a tea to wake me up and give me solid resolve for the rest of the day.

Just like The Purrfect Cup, I only have this mixed with Matevana. But, that being said, I’ve had Matevana on its own enough to know how it tastes.

DavidsTEA taught me that I love a chocolate tea with chili. Azteca Fire, with its strawberry notes, is lovely and sweet. I don’t drink this (or my blend) a lot because it’s a little too much for every day but it’s just enough for right now, nursing my seething hangover.

I like to make sure there’s loads of apple and gooseberries in my steeper when I make this.

I much prefer it iced to hot, but the blend of fruit and the orange oil along with the mint makes this a clean tasting tea that doesn’t need to be sweetened. Delish.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

Definitely not for me. I was careful to follow steeping instructions, but I couldn’t shake the notion that I was drinking perfume.

Sad, as the ingredient list is full of things I like.

I’m hoping to grab some of this shortly.

The mint alone helps make colds seem less awful, but the overall taste of the tea is pleasant rather than medicinal. As with most things that contain juniper, I can’t quite shake the gin smell. But I’m over it. I drink this even when I’m not ill.

One of the only teas in the world I don’t sweeten.

Beautiful rich cherry taste.

drank MateVana by Teavana

Despite not liking nutty teas too much, I like MateVana. I think it’s because it really does remind me of a coffee.

It has a decent amount of sweetness, and the chocolate taste is fantastic. I once burnt this, though, and it was only a cup of oversweet regret. Watch your temperature.

Great iced tea. Really rich in its fruit flavours.

The orange and apple notes really come through as well!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I can see why this sucker has been brought back 2 years in a row. Man-oh-man.

It’s a bit… strange to smell. It has a nice scent to it, vaguely of pumpkin and a warm caramel note, but not what I was anticipating. And certainly not what I got when I made it.

Oh MAN. ♥

I drink this a lot, especially as a latte. It’s rich and warm and I feel very relaxed and happy when I drink it. Pumpkin Chai takes me to my happy place!

Got this tea as a recommendation from a friend when I said “I like fruit teas”.

Not exactly what I was expecting, honestly. I tend to drift more towards a white or black than a green. Nice smell, a bit tart for my tastes. This is pretty excellent if you have a cold, though. Makes you feel overall better and relaxed.
