160 Tasting Notes
I tried this tea quite recently with soy milk and a bit of agave. I found it to be very similar to Cream of Earl Grey without the added vanilla notes. The taste of this tea is also much lighter than Cream of Earl Grey. I definitely recommend this one and look forward to trying this one again!
LOVE this tea!!! I went to the mall a few weeks ago and got a to-go cup to sip on while doing my shopping. After LOVING this tea so much, I stopped by DT again before leaving to pick up another to-go cup for the drive home and a 50g bag to bring home (where I made yet ANOTHER cup of the tea). This tea is super creamy and chocolatey. I would definitely recommend a longer steeping time for this as at first it was slightly bitter. I’ve now had this tea several times and that has been the case for each sipdown. I will be picking up a full tin once I run out and strongly recommend you do the same. This one became an instant favourite!
I tried this about a month ago but I am just getting around to logging it now! The colour of this tea is a very vibrant pink. Immediately, the slight spice is apparent. This tea was good, however not great- and not memorable. I would recommend you give it a try but it was really nothing overly special.
I had this one as an in-store sample while in the mall yesterday. I had smelled this one while in the store last time and did not like it at all, the cucumber/melon smell was overwhelming and made me nauseous. I should probably mention that I absolutely HATE both cucumbers, and melons…both of which are in this tea! When I tried this as a sample in the store, I was surprised to find that the cucumber really mellowed out and helped to smooth out the black tea (which can sometimes be quite strong depending on the blend). I am happy I tried it but due to my hatred of cucumber, I don’t think I would be able to drink an entire cup of it. I do recommend it for all of you who are neutral to or enjoy the taste of cucumber and for those like me who hate it, I would suggest that you give it a try for yourself as you may be surprised!
This one has been on my “Tea’s to try” list for a loooonnnggg time now (over 2 years!) and it was just yesterday that I finally got around to trying it. I had this in a to-go cup while I was out shopping. The earl grey base definitely does come through however most of the taste came from the strawberries which gave the tea a fruity and sour note. The strawberry is definitely toned down in this tea compared to other strawberry teas such as Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait and Sweet Strawberry. I definitely enjoyed this tea and would drink it again however it’s not one I would rush out to buy. I would recommend trying it for yourself too.
I had this as a to-go cup today while at the mall and I loved it! The tea smells very sweet and fruity when dry and I was worried it would overpower the green tea- the two however worked harmoniously and worked to balance the tea. When steeped, the grape smell comes off mildly and beautifully. The bitterness of the green tea comes through in both the taste and smell of the tea. I was really happy with the fact that the flavouring was mild enough that the tea still came through as I am a big fan of green tea (I love the sour/bitter taste). The grape taste comes through at the end of the sip along with floral notes and is very smooth. I will be picking up some of this before it goes away!
I finally got around to trying this tea and am glad I did. When dry, the smell of the tea is very similar to The Glow. It smells strongly of cinnamon and mildly of apple- even thought there are no apples it in. When steeped, the tea turns a beautiful fuchsia colour. The tea is warm, slightly fruity, and has a sour note to it. I look forward to trying this tea iced as well during the summer. I think it would be really nice with the sour and fruity notes with a touch of agave.
This was another one of the new ones my mom surprised me with yesterday. I tried it for the first time last night. When I smelled the dry tea, I didn’t get the chemical smell which a lot of other people noted. What I did notice however was that this tea is mostly made up of dried fruit pieces and has no form of tea in it. When steeped, my tea turned a light yellow-orange colour and smelled like peach and mildly of vanilla. I really do like peach teas however this one did fall a little flat. The peach is definitely not as strong as it is in other teas like Long Life Oolong but is a nice alternative for people who aren’t crazy about peach. I would recommend trying it for yourself. I will have no problem finishing the bag she bought for me and would also like to try it iced but will be in no rush to re-stock- nor would I be devastated if they chose not to bring it back next year.
I was thrilled when I got home today and my mom surprised me with a few of the new teas! (Thanks mom!) and after smelling those that she had picked up, I decided this would be the first one I had to try. The dry smell is very sweet. The pineapple intermingles with the smell of the blueberries which makes the fruity smell intoxicating. When steeped, the blueberry smell becomes more apparent and the pineapple is still detectable in the background. When steeped, the tea takes on a grey-blue colour before turning purple. The tea itself is very sweet and for me, the taste of the pineapple came through more than that of the blueberries- I definitely wouldn’t add any sweetener as it is already sweet enough. If you like fruity teas, pineapple and blueberries, I definitely recommend this tea! I look forward to trying this iced as well!
I tried this when I visited David’s Tea yesterday. This is a tea which I have wanted to try since it first came out. I have to say that I was pretty disappointed with this one. I found the orange to be very sirupy and the tea was overly sweet (I didn’t even add any type of sweetener.) The tea left a weird aftertaste in my mouth as well. I can’t see myself wanting to try this again.
