I love me a tea that tastes like peaches, and this is no exception.

Makes a nice, pale yellow tea. Very mellow and smooth. Can stand up to sweetening.

drank Pineapple Kona Pop! by Teavana

I have this blended with Blueberry Bliss and Fruito Bianco Pearls (someone made a mess of a mix, I loved the smell).

The Pineapple notes really come through, but there is a strangely candy-like note to the tea overall.

This is my favourite Davids Tea. Other things come close, but this is what I always go back to.

Brews a nice golden brown tea with gold sparkles. Smells like cinnamon and spice.

G+G is versatile and can stand up to any kind of mixing you want to throw at it. It drinks well hot, cold, with or without sweetener, and with or without milk. It’s a good gift if you know anyone in your life that loves shiny things (I get way too excited over revealing that it sparkles when its brewed).

I’m not always in the mood for this, and sometimes forget I have it, but it’s such a nice light tea.

Normally I’ll make a small Yixing pot of this and let it sit for a little while after it’s steeped. I am a sweet tea drinker by nature, but I will only add honey to this on occasion. The Gyokuro doesn’t quite lend to a sweet tea taste.

Nom!

Brews a dark, rich spicy tea. Works really well as a dessert tea. Nice blend of peppercorn and chocolate. Good with and without milk.

drank Checkmate by DAVIDsTEA

I’m surprised I like Checkmate at all. Typically I’m not a fan of coconut or anything with that sort of flavour, but this is great. It’s easy to scald the white leaves while you’re perfectly steeping the black, so erring on the side of lower temperature water for longer will probably help.

It’s a light brown when brewed. Good sweetened, unsweetened, with or without milk; both hot and iced. (A co-worker told me to try it iced with milk and a big of agave. Agh. <3)

My favourite use of this was around Christmas, I was making eggnog lattes with 2 tsp of Checkmate and a tsp of honey. Glorious.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec
