drank Lady Devotea by The Devotea
4942 tasting notes

well, might as well continue with the trend of teas i don’t think i’ll like before i have a final couple of cups tonight that i do like. Let me tell you…drinking things alongside the cocktail i made for myself tonight (gingerale; rye; pama) is the way to do it! lol

Soooo the lady has lavender! OH GOODIE blarg AND Blergamot…two awesome flavours in one beautiful tea! not.
….or….maybe? Hmmm… i’m thinking that just maybe the devotea doesn’t understand flowers the way that other companies do. I’m not really getting a whole lot of lavender (maybe it’s all in the cup i saved for cavocorax bwahahahaha) so this is coming across as more of a subtle blergy, orangey tea…with a splash of what might be floral on the side.

final verdict? yeah i still don’t wanna drink this…but it’s MUCH less offensive to me than i thought it would be. I have to say that the devotea has quite a nice black base….this is what i’ve learned so far haha

Yay for less offensive than anticipated?

I brewed one cup of this & shared it with Tony, and although it wasn’t my cup of tea, Tony loved it! To each their own, eh?

It’s hard to know how to cope with this review! It’s our number 2 selling tea world-wide, but I don’t drink it myself (allergies). I guess it’s not aimed at people who don’t like florals or bergamot, so I think we’ll see “far less offensive that I thought it would be” as very positive!

haha with me, that’s a good thing Robert :) I hate blergamot but in the grand scheme of things, this was a “good” cup or at least i can see that it would be if i enjoyed blergamot :) (hence no rating since it’s not a cup for me but others would like it!)

heh, i think this is a success – two things you dislike and you didn’t spit it out, i’ll take it!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
