438 Tasting Notes
I really wanna love this tea. So so much ><
It’s soo chocolatey- which I really like. But it also tastes really grainy and nutty, which I’m not so fond of. It’s like a grainy, chocolatey tea.
Since I’m officially off of work for now, might go through all the teas I’ve not had in a while and decide what to keep, and what needs a new home.
I really do wish I liked this one though. I really thought this time I’d like it better. :/
Flavors: Chocolate, Grain, Nuts
I get it. I really do. I get the hype. I get why everyone was upset that they didn’t bring it back this year. I really do get it.
I’m surprised how much I like this one!
It totally tastes like peppermint bark to me. The main flavor is peppermint, but there’s also a lot of vanilla, and it’s creamy. Ugh. It’s just delicious!
Why on earth wouldn’t they bring it back this year?! This is probably the best Christmas Tea from Davids’ I’ve ever had! Way better than Santa’s Secret too. It just has so much more depth to it! I really hope they bring this back at some point so I can pick up more of it! Absolutely delicious!!
Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for the sample, NayLynn!!!!
Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Peppermint, Smooth, Thick, Vanilla, White Chocolate
Eh..I was going into this one expecting something totally different. There’s a lot of spearmint in this tea, kinda creamy, but not much depth to it.
Can’t say I’m super disappointed with it since I wasn’t super excited to try it in the first place, but glad I got to try it. I just don’t understand the hype about it. xD
Thank you for the sample though, NayLynn (?)! And the cute Christmas card!
Sooo I don’t think that lavender is for me….
My bro used to be OBSESSED with this hookah flavor that was like Kashmir and lavender combined…it tasted like an old person’s house or something…one of his friends also hated it but him and I would smoke it anyway, and he would make so many comments about how bad it is. xD This tea totally brings me back to that haha!
I mean, this isn’t nearly as awful as that tobacco was or anything. But it still reminds me of that. The lavender isn’t overwhelming in it, the chamomile is very much present. I think if I never smoked that Kashmir flavor, I would have liked this better…but this one isn’t for me!
Glad I got to try it though-I almost bought it a few times. Thank you for sending me some of this, Carol Who!
Flavors: Lavender, Sour
So got my first YS yesterday…I hear so much about their teas, And finally I decided to give in from their CM sale a few weeks ago. This is the first one I tried from my order!!
The dry leaf smell was insanely powerful when I opened the bag-very sweet, like honey. While it steeped, the overwhelming sweet aroma mellowed out a bit.
But the taste was similar to the smell-incredibly sweet. Reminded me most of honey and sweet potatoes. It has that creamy and thick texture in every sip.
Ladies and gents, we have a winner here!! :D :D Perfect tea to start the day out with! Can’t wait to try the others too! :D
Flavors: Creamy, Honey, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes, Thick
So as many of you know, I’ve been on a mission to find good decaf teas lately so they will help my physical issues. Well, Carol Who decided to send me a bunch of decaf teas this week, which is totally up my alley! So excited about these teas. Thank you for helping my exploration to find the best decaf teas, Carol Who! :D
I don’t generally like Lipton as a brand, but a few years ago I used to drink one of their peach teas. Wasn’t great, but was decent.
Wasn’t so sure about trying this one, but since it’s a chamomile, I had to try! Glad I did!
Was pleasantly surprised.
While I don’t think that chamomile and pineapple should be mixed together-since those two flavors alone are often sour in things, this tea actually tastes okay. It definitely is more of a sour tea, but it reminds me of candy. Which I am always down for. Because candy is the bomb in my world :P
I don’t think I’d want to buy this tea, but I will enjoy finishing off this one. Thank you for the tea bags, Carol Who! This one will be good when I’m in the mood for something sweeter than the banana chamomiles I have! :D
Flavors: Candy, Pineapple, Sour
So, yesterday when I was getting my shot, my dr injected some steroids, and was telling me the side effects that it would cause. Yesterday and early this morning I kept getting like hot flashes-and I’d feel super hot and would literally start sweating, even though it’s freezing in my room. That’s gone away mostly, but now I am feeling super irritated and grumpy for no reason whatsoever. My dr mentioned this side effect the most out of all of them. At first it was somewhat okay, but now I just can’t focus on anything. >< Stupid side effects. So brewed up some chamomile tea…maybe this one will help.
If not, at least it still tastes good! :P
