Yeah, I had this one twice just to check, but …it’s kinda boring. Not bad, just – not great, either.

Boo. I thought it was good when they gave it to me in the store but was underwhelmed later on. At least the others are hits.

Maybe cream/soymilk would make it better?

Ozli

I think that’d just wash it out even more :s I’ll have no problem finishing but yeah, it’s not going on the shopping list :P

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

This smells like fucked up cake your aunt makes that has jujubes in it. Or your mother in law, maybe? Probably. Anyway, it’s super good. The first sip I was like GINGERBREAD that is different enough from actual gingerbread for me to like it! \o/

Kelly and I had a whole pot of this. YUM.

PS there’s coconut in this :D :D :D

Cavocorax

A whole pot? Mmmmm. I’m gonna have to try this too, especially now that I know I like rooibos teas!

Ozli

You should!

As soon as I stepped into the kitchen where this was steeping, BAM!!! Oh man, this smells so good. It’s minty more than anything, like plastic-coated candy canes at Xmas in all the best nostalgic ways. :P I really really really like this tea.

I love this tea. O___O

I was unconvinced with the description, unconvinced with the look (floaty bits that take a few to dissolve), unconvinced…. BUT. SO GOOD. I usually hate banana things, but this is very (very) good.

ADDED to shopping list.

Ozli

drank Main Squeeze by DAVIDsTEA

This is weird. I don’t know if I like it. The description sounded amazing but it kinda tastes like grassy watered down kool-aid. That being said, I’d drink it again. What is wrong with me. Maybe I just really like grassy watered down kool-aid, what’s it to you. (It was an extra that came with my order.)

It’d probably be really good iced in the summer, too.

Crazy! It’s a mate blend? I haven’t much of those but when I used to drink Chocolate Rocket it made me jumpy – so much caffeine! Looking at the ingredients I can see why you think it tastes look Kool-Aid! :P Maybe if you steeped it longer? They suggest 4-7 min, which is quite a range, but maybe the mate would kick your butt at the strength.

Iced probably would be great!

Ozli

I’m gonna try it again tomorrow morning, the other half of the sample. I’ll try the longer steep >:D

Ozli

Oh yeah, yeah, Mate – which I have never had before, actually. But “Tang” comes up a LOT in the reviews page hehehe so I was not far off with that Kool-Aid XP

Cavocorax

Haha. I look very reading team other reviews. Some are hilarious. Tang… Kool-Aid… The only difference is the amount of sugar?

Ozli

ONE of these drinks was used by astronauts! :P

drank Irish Breakfast Tea by Twinings

Good and hot with milk and sugar. And nutella cookies! I made this tea JUST in time for my new tea order to arrive! :P

But then my possibly parasite-ridden kitten licked it, so I don’t feel bad about throwing it out now.

Preparation
4 min, 15 sec
Cavocorax

Hahha. How convenient! Were you letting him sniff it? Dunking his face in it? :P

Ozli

Hahahaha >:D (you jerk XP there’s this little triangle of flat up against the wall on the back of the loveseat where my tea sits – it is NOT cat!safe)

Earl Grey’s good with the pumpkin fudge (!!) but it’s too late for caffeine ;) ;)

drank Lemon and Ginger by Twinings

Had this last night for my throat, with honey. :)

Preparation

Cavocorax

That sounds pretty good. My throat is sore so I should make licorice tea, but don’t wanna stomp around the kitchen and wake everyone up. I bet lemon would work nicely too.

Side note: my tablet auto-corrected licorice tea to licorice tequila. :)

Ozli

Yyyyum?

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
