I agree with the other reviews of this tea, this is a mango breakfast tea. I don’t see how it is super pomagrantey. I would love to try Pom Power if anyone has any left because I feel like it would have a less dominate mango flavor.

I will echo TC by singing this teas praises. I love strawberry teas, I love flavored oolongs, so this one was love at first sight! I only did one steep yesterday (will try to resteep this afternoon) but the strawberry flavor was so fresh, and the smoothness of the oolong still comes through. I didn’t get much rhubarb but I think the tartness was there. Yum!

Omnomonom. This is my favorite Della Terra tea and the one that I have been waiting for as far as apple teas are concerned. Finished up my packet today, and will look at getting a larger pouch in the future. I like it best with some sweetener and milk. It makes a heavenly latte.

This is the first of a few tealogs I owe the lovely Rachel (who is currently and bravely without tea, keep up the spirit!) for the beautiful .5 oz samples she sent me after I won her blog give away last month.

I reached for this one this morning for my first latte of the day. Brewed it up with a bit of aguave and some frothed milk on top. And all I can say is, yum! Such a great idea mixing cinnamon with mint. I made sure not to oversteep so I can’t say how astringent the base was, but this is such a great Christmas tea. It reminded me of the flavors I like in the winter, and I can see the bite of this one being the perfect thing to enjoy on a cold day. I’m glad I tried this now when I still have an appetite for these flavors. Yum :)

I am glad you enjoyed this blend. It’s the hubby’s favorite. He has a cup every night. :)

I’ve had this one in my collection for a while, and am finally getting around to logging it/sipping down what I had left. It was given to me by a friend who thought it would be something that I would enjoy. Sadly, I wish I could say I liked it more than I do. It is playing study buddy tonight as I finish a term paper, but secretly I wish I had just brewed up my old late night friend the Skinny. Happy to be done the bag though as tomorrow the new teas come out and I have some nice space in my cupboard now :)

Last cup of the day! Way oversteeped on this one. I’m very fond of this one, thought it seems to get no love from the steepster community. Anyone else missing this one this year? I had to stock up before it went out of stock. I love the berry paired with the ginger. Perfect for spring/summer.

Boiling 8 min or more

I wanted to get some of this but couldn’t justify shipping enough since I can get most DAVIDsTEAs locally, but this one looks really good!

Sipdown again! I had this one while watching Once Upon a Time tonight which was sososososo GOOD! I love how fruity, hibiscusy, and cinnamony this one is. It’s great hot AND iced. One day I will get a tin of it.

Sipdown #8! I chose this one because I actually love it and needed to finish the bag so I can get a bit more to stash away for colds. It’s strong, spicy, and deliciously gingery. I think when I ever do get sick (knock on wood) this and Cold 911 will be my go to teas. Should I get 50 grams, or just 30 to have around for whenever I need it?

50 if you like it a lot, because if you ever crave a ginger tea, this is the one to have! I got 100 in a tin of this one :)

Bear With Me

it’s also great for cooking, so I’d go for 50g. I hate drinking it, it’s too strong for me, but I love cooking with it!

Sipdown #7! It needs to be colder out for me to fully enjoy this tea, but this is still a keeper. Sweet and sour deliciousness. This is my advent calendar sample but I still have a half a tin of this to keep me until next Winter.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Sipdown #6?!? This one needs to steep a long time, or else I find it lacks flavor. I like it a lot and would consider getting 50 grams in a bit because it would nice for summer iced lattes. Not my favorite chai though, I think the best Davids one is Chai Guarana.

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.
