163 Tasting Notes
I had this tea a couple of weeks ago while on vacation and am just having a chance to review it now. I really enjoyed the tea and plan to pick up a tin on my next visit. The smell is very light, sweet and reminiscent of cotton candy. Even though I am not a big fan of the real thing, I really enjoyed this tea. I found that this tea is less sweet and a bit milder than the real thing but in a more enjoyable and palatable way.
I had this iced a couple of days ago when I stopped by David’s. I definitely think that they are right in declaring this to be their peachiest tea yet! I really enjoyed the tea but did find there to be a bit of an aftertaste and that the peach flavour was so overwhelming that it tasted artificial (kinda like fuzzy peach candy). The aftertaste was definitely not as bad as it was for their Peaches & Cream blend though. I would like to try this warm as well to compare. Overall I did enjoy it and found it to be very refreshing. Definitely will have this a few times this summer.
I recently tried a cup of this while in the airport. Although it does have a bit of an aftertaste, the fruity notes are still quite pleasant. I took the advice of the girl at the counter who instructed me not to let this one steep for too long (she said that it took on a really strange taste if left too long) so I steeped it for her recommended time of 3 minutes. This tea was pretty good and I’m glad I tried it but it did not make me feel the need to rush out and buy more of this. I would recommend that you give it a try for yourself.
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.
