This one really tastes like mango juice. I like it a lot, but it is SO expensive because it is so heavy. For 25 grams I got two iced teas out of it.

I’ve decided I really like this one iced. It’s light, fruity, and unique because of the bamboo base. I always got it as a to go cup cold, and now I have some at home. I want to turn it into a cocktail somehow, but I need to figure out what would go with it.

drank Ceylon Spring by DAVIDsTEA

I agree with other reviews very fresh with strong honey notes. Great both hot and iced, nice with a splash of milk. Naturally sweet.

This is the perfect tea for making strawberry lattes! Yum! It reminds me of Davids Love Tea #7, but better and more creamy. It is creamy strawberry with a hint of chocolate. Too bad I am on a no tea buying hiatus or I would pick up 2 oz :(

Ok I’m calling it, this is the best tea Davids has come out with in a long long time. It has a crazy amount of depth to it. I love it hot, I love it iced, I love it in an iced latte (which I am drinking right now). I may bump birthday cake or pinapple oolong out of my top 3 davids. Its spicy, but its also lemony, it’s really something special. If you are a Davids fan, or if you just like flavoured teas, go pick this one up. I promise you it won’t disappoint, there are so many great ways to enjoy.
Oh and as far as steeping goes, I find its best to do a fairly short steep on this one. Not tooo short, and its a bit better than most of Davids whites, but you want to keep it under 3 minutes so that it doesn’t get bitter. Though even if I forget about it and it steeps way to long it is still good. BACK TO PAPER WRITING!!

This is a sweeter chai. I don’t know that it is anything particularly special, but I am enjoying it right now.

I did not like this.. I think its because I had a real chai brought back from India and it has spoiled me…. so disappointing! I had high hopes for this one

I am so happy that I managed to snag a bag of this on Frank’s first reblend this go round. It is the best of the three genmaicha’s people seem to be comparing (I have Smores and Browncoat as well). It tastes exactly like a sweet marshmallow square :) Yum.

drank Raspberry Cream by 52teas

Yum my 52 teas order arrived yesterday, so I am having this one as a latte this morning. It is quite delicious. Raspberry is one of my favorite flavours, and the creamy background that comes out when you steep it works really well. I wish this one wasn’t sold out :(

I also had this a couple of times and I just can’t believe how wonderful, deep, and juicy the flavor was. Super glad I purchased it.

wish i’d been able to pick up a second bag.

This was one of my go to morning teas for a few months. It tastes like strong lemon and green mate. If you like that, you will like this tea. Much sharper than a traditional lemon herbal.

I’ve kinda chosen to make this my spring black this year because 1) Pom Power isn’t really better with milk, and I love my morning latte 2) Most of Davids spring collection seems to be geared towards icing. But I really like this one! It goes with the coconut heavy-ness of the collection. SO I am enjoying a cup of it this morning and will probably get a tin soon :)

My love affair with tea began in 2008 when I was living abroad in France. I have since collected teas from all over the world, and enjoy a nice cuppa in the morning. I enjoy mate, black, and herbal tea the best. I am adventuring out a bit into oolong and white teas. Tea is one of my favorite things in the world, and I hope my posts reflect my lighthearted approach to life.

I am a grad student in Ontario where I live with my husband. I study Canadian-American relations and examine Canadian identity through this lens.
