This is a lovely tea! I’ve been wanting to try this one since it came out.
It’s not too strong, but it’s not weak either. I’m liking the fruity taste I’m getting from it. I’m wishing I had added just a touch more sugar, but it’s good anyway. I’m wondering what it would taste like chilled. I could see it being good.
I’m interested to see if it gives me the boost I need today to keep going. I didn’t sleep well last night and I’m really dragging. Anyway, Hopefully it wakes me up.
180 Tasting Notes
This is a lovely tea! I’ve been wanting to try this one since it came out.
I had this one last night… and sadly I don’t care for it at all. I wish I did. I found it to be too bitter for me. I steeped it for the proper amount of time and everything, but I didn’t really care for it. I even added milk and sugar to see if that would mellow it out a bit, but it didn’t seem to do much to soften the bitterness. I just can’t seem to like it.
I’m not too sure how I’m going to drink the rest that I have. Maybe I’ll finally try the cold steep method I’ve heard so much about? I dunno.
Poor Superberry… you aren’t super to me.. :(
In one of my last posts, I referred to the chocolate store that I worked for, and I’m gonna mention it again. The store decided to release flower inspired chocolates. One of them was a lavender chocolate. I had to try it and it wasn’t good. Well, at least to me it wasn’t.
So, when thinking about trying this tea, I couldn’t help but think of that chocolate, even tho realistically, tea and chocolate are two different things. This came as a free sample and this poor little bag as been waiting for me to try it for months.
The coconut/lavender blend is quite nice! It’s soft and smooth. It’s a calming tea that is very nice. I’d definitely get this one again.
So, technically speaking, I shouldn’t be reviewing this tea yet… but I’m going to. haha
I made this tea this morning, but I made it half this and half hazelnut cream (from the Tea Haus).
Many, many moons ago, (okay, only about 5yrs ago) I worked for a Canadian chocolate company. I loved it (until right at the end. By that time I was ready to start a career elsewhere. Sadly, five years later, I still don’t have that career. That fell apart about a year and a half ago. But I must say, it definitely was for the better looking back. That job was slowly killing me. Okay, that’s probably a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. Mentally it was too much.)
ANYWAYS, so when I was working for this chocolate place, I heard about chocolate covered hazelnuts. I had never been willing to try them before ‘cause I’m not the biggest nut fan and I figured that I wouldn’t like them. But once I started at this company and I was encouraged to try all of the chocolates we sold, I thought I’d give it a try.
That moment forward, I fell in love with hazelnuts. And when they were covered in chocolate, they were even better!
So, when a few of us went together and placed our Tea Haus order, I knew I wanted to try this one and the Hazelnut Cream. I put in one teaspoon of each one into my steeper and did the three minute steep like it recommends. It is delicious! I’m so happy to have finally tried it.
If you like chocolate, and you like hazelnuts, or if you just like chocolate covered hazelnuts, mix the two together. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
I want to try this one on its own too ’cause I have a feeling it might taste just like a hot chocolate with milk and sugar added of course. It already sort of has that taste. :)
Once again I was lured into the hibiscus teas. I didn’t realize when I bought this one that it had that in it. (I was too excited about the smell).
This one isn’t even as close to as bad as the last one for hibiscus though. I am finding that the balance of mango to hibiscus is definitely manageable. I’m happy to report, I’m actually noticing the mango flavour!
I have a different mango tea that I do enjoy more, so realistically I probably wouldn’t buy this one again, but it is a nice tea to try.
Again, a friend of mine gave this to me a while ago. I don’t have much of it left, so I figured I better write a review before it’s totally gone.
She made this one for her babyshower and she made it iced! It was really good! I was surprised. At that point in time, I didn’t drink iced tea. I still struggle to drink iced tea, but not as much now as I did then. So, when she said she was making an iced tea, I was leary of trying it. But, I wanted to be polite, so I tried it. I didn’t expect that it would be so good, considering the chai flavour. Most of the time when I think chai, I think hot, not cold.
Anyway, so she gave me a bunch of this one, and I’ve been slowly drinking through it. It is a lovely chai tea. I love the spicy punch it gives. It isn’t as ‘heavy’ as a black tea. It tends to be a lighter chai taste, but that’s not to say that it is weak. The different base just makes it a bit… different.
I absolutely love this one. I’ll have to get more of it once the current tea collection has dwindled a bit. I have far too much tea for me to drink. I must get through some of that first.
I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a good chai tea that isn’t a black tea base and that wants a good flavour too.
I hate hibiscus. I’m ready to fully admit that the stuff needs to go.
I bought this yesterday when I was out with my mom. There’s an amazing little shop only about 20mins from place that has a TON of teas. I had never heard of this one before, so I thought, hey, why not give it a try?
I love the smell of it. COCONUT!!! LOVED the smell. That’s what hooked me!
Taste… :( The poor coconut, apple, pineapple goodness was lost behind the hibiscus. I don’t know if I made it too strong or if I let it steep too long, but the hibiscus was too much. I know this is going to sound weird, but I’m wondering if it’s hard or easy to take all the hibiscus out of it? I’m going to try it again… :(
I didn’t care for this one hot. I found it to be too tart from the hibiscus.
SO, I’m trying this one chilled! I’ve got it cooling right now. I’ve added some sugar and it looks like it’s going to be a strong one. It is DARK. I can’t wait to try it. :)
Will update once it’s done!
UPDATE: So, I was going to drink this one before I left for work today but I didn’t. So anyway, here I am after work wanting to drink some tea, but not wanting to go through all the motions of making it. hahaha
So, when I said dark, think like red wine dark. I poured a small glass of this into one of my new double-walled glasses and it is DARK. BUT, taste, I love it! I’m so happy that I didn’t give this one away like I had originally planned to. Because it’s so strong and fruity, it almost tastes like juice; a berry juice of sorts. I’m totally loving it.
Given though, as much as I love it, I probably wouldn’t get this one again only ’cause I have other fruity teas that I love even more. And they are teas that I love both hot and chilled. Still, I will definitely enjoy what I have. :)
This one smelt like bubblegum dry. My husband was the first to notice that.
Steeped, it smells more like apples. It’s subtle, but it’s there.
I think I might have needed to add more leaves to this. It seems a bit weak. I did one tsp per cup for 5 mins. I think I might try more like 1.5tsp. The apple flavour that I expected wasn’t there. I’m kind of disappointed a bit with this one. I know it might just be that I didn’t steep it enough, but I dunno. I’m going to have to try this one again before I rate it.
To me, it tastes like a plain rooibos with a hint of cinnamon.
I didn’t know that this one was called Georgia Peach. I bought this one, and where I bought it from must have dropped the first part of the name when they made up the label. I just thought it was called Sweet Peach Rooibos, but after looking over this, I’m pretty sure this is the one that I have.
It is a lovely peach flavoured tea. I love the rooibos base with it. It is a very good pairing. I like the fact that it is an almost juicy peach flavour that comes through.
I must agree with the other reviewer here. The DavidsTea Southern Belle (Peach tea) wasn’t good to me. I couldn’t drink it. My husband seems to not mind it too much, but I can’t drink it. So I find that this tea is a very nice one to have on hand. It is just about perfect for flavouring of a peach tea.
I’m just finishing up my stash of it, so I’ll have to get more again at some point.
I didn’t do this one justice today. I made it far too weak. I should have added more leaves to it.
But, I do love the combination of chocolate and almond and raspberry flavours. I find this tea to be very unique in itself.
I really wish I had made this one stronger as I really wanted to enjoy this tea properly. I know in the past when I’ve made it properly it always turns out so good. It is a wave of flavours that are just amazing.
Maybe tomorrow morning I’ll try again.
I’m very excited about this tea. I know that I have logged this one before, but I have to tell what happened this weekend!
So, I needed to get away. It’s been a rough year and a half, and I needed a break. So, I went to see my in-laws. I know most people find their in-laws to be stressful or whatever, but not me. I’ve been blessed with the best in-laws I could ever ask for. My mother-in-law and I get along so well. We spent two days together this weekend, just the two of us and we had a blast. I’m so blessed.
Anyway, because I knew I was going to be going down in the area, I called up the Teaopia and asked if they had any of this tea for sale. They said they only had a 1000g bag! And it’s 75% off ‘cause Teaopia is switching over. The price was out of this world awesome, so I picked up a bag. Now I will be drinking this tea for probably a few years and loving every minute of it!
I’m sad to see Teaopia go. The sales are making it less sad, but still sad. I hope that Teavana will be good. :) I’m excited to try their teas.
My mom-in-law got this one as it’s one of the ones on clearance from Teaopia. I got to try some ‘cause I’m visiting :)
This tea is so sweet and delicious. I’m really enjoying it! The green rooibos base is perfect for this light, fruity blend. I think the pairing is very good.
I’m visiting my in-laws (I’ve got the greatest in-laws ever!) and my mother-in-law is in love with this tea, so I thought I’d give it a try.
The colour steeped is so beautiful. It’s a deep pink colour that actually reminds me of the Kanpe tea colour when steeped. Taste was tart but also a lovely fruity taste. I really enjoyed this tea. I’d probably have it again.
My mum-in-law has hugely stocked up on this one. I’m glad she loves it so much!
Dear Three Lemon Green,
Every since I found out that I’m allergic to grass, I’ve been quite nervous to have you again… you and your lemony goodness. I’ve been worried about how I would feel after I had you. But tonight I’m trying you again and I’m hoping that you treat me well. I’m really hoping ‘cause you taste amazing. The perfect lemony taste with the perfect green rooibos base.
Anyway, if you and I get along for the rest of the night, then I think I’m going to make a nice big pitcher of you iced.
A huge fan
This is a sample I got… probably almost a year ago, but have yet to try. I got it with one of my online orders I believe.
The smell of this one is quite strong of cinnamon and cardamon.
Taste-wise I found this one to be kinda weak also. I expected a punch of flavours, but they weren’t as strong as I expected. But it does a nice chai taste despite it. The cinnamon and cardamon are probably the strongest tastes within this tea.
This summer has been one for heat! We have had at least two heat waves, and I was starting to think that maybe there wasn’t an end in sight! But this morning I was struggling to wake up (which I do on a good day hahaha), and I realized it’s because it’s dark and rainy out! The heat has broken for at least today and been replaced with crazy amounts of rain! Maybe now my flowers will come back to life in the garden!
So I thought, what better day than today, to enjoy a favourite such as pumpkin chai! It is such a warm comforting tea to me.
This tea screams fall. It’s the perfect cup of tea to snuggle up with on a gloomy-looking day such as today. And although I have to work this morning, I brought some with me and I’m really enjoying the soothing comfort of this tea. It is delightful!
I’ve been stressing out a lot lately about some stuff at work. Today came a big answer as to what was going to happen and I’m very relieved.
I didn’t know what that answer would be until I got here today, but I thought I’d bring in a tea from home to enjoy as it would help the day go smoother until I heard the news. I chose my newest tea to the collection, Bamboozled!
Last summer I was given a whole bunch of Blazing Strawberries from a friend of mine and I loved it. The first two times or so times I had it, I didn’t really know what to think of it, but now I absolutely LOVE it. I think this tea will be the same.
I got only 50g of this last night as I was trying to be good. It has large pieces of fruit all through it with the bamboo leaves.
It is a nice fruity refreshing tea. I’m definitely enjoying it. I’d probably buy this one again as it is so fruity and nice.
The bamboo is a strange base, but I definitely like it as a change.
My wonderful husband took me to our closest DavidsTea tonight for a treat (it’s an hr away). I asked him last week if I could finally treat myself to a glass teapot, as I’ve always LOVED the look of them, but have never ever owned one. I was always hesitate to buying one only ‘cause realistically I don’t need one, but I’ve always hoped to have one.
SO, we get there and the plan was to buy the teapot, buy some bamboozled, and then leave……. probably a good 30mins later, we finally left… maybe it was longer… I can’t remember. Either way, I was in heaven. I got to smell a bunch that I hadn’t yet and I decided after smelling this particular taste of heaven that I would try it as a to-go tea.
I was debating about purchasing some, but I’m so leery towards white teas ‘cause the flavour isn’t as strong and I’m so worried about burning the leaves.
So, I had this one to go.
I must say, this one is quite good! It is a more subtle flavour than most of the teas that I enjoy on a day to day basis (I’m a black tea drinker through and through, although I will also enjoy herbals and rooibos teas). The apple flavour was delicious. Not overpowering, but not under-whelming either. I picked up on an almost cinnamon flavour too.
I really enjoyed this tea. I don’t think I’d be daring enough to purchase some, as again, I’m not much of white tea drinker, but I did enjoy it. I could see this one also working quite well as an iced tea. I’d definitely give that a try too.
Tomorrow, I shall try out my new teapot. What I’m going to brew up, I don’t know, but I can’t wait to give it a try!
This tea I got as an exchange for something I didn’t care for at all.
It was a surprise to me, that’s for sure. Everyone was saying it tasted like a pina colada, but I didn’t know if I believed them, but now I do. This tea is a nice fruity, sweet tea that is just amazing. It smells exactly like what I’d expect summer to taste like.
I enjoyed a cup of this last night while rewriting a short story I’ve been writing and although the tea and the story didn’t match, the tea was delightful. I can see this being a good one to chill and enjoy in the backyard with a good book.
I had this one yesterday afternoon but forgot to log it!
The smell of this one is unbelieveably like root beer. I love the actually root beer beverage so I had to try it, and the smell for sure lives up to the name.
I only made an 8oz glass, which for me is small. I always do 16ozs or more… but I wanted to ease myself into this tea.
My timer was acting up on me, so I think I may have steeped it a bit longer than I should have…
Once I tried it, I have to agree with another reviewer here. It was a weak taste when hot, but as it cooled, you could really get the flavours coming out of it. It is definitely a root beer flavoured tea. It was so yummy, but sweet! I made the mistake of adding the tinyest amount of sugar to it and I realize now I shouldn’t have. It was far too sweet. I think if I had skipped that I would have been fine.
I did add some milk to it too to try and bring out the creaminess. It did help, but even still, I think it would have been just fine without the milk.
I think I’d like to try this one chilled as it’ll probably make it taste more like what I expect when I hear root beer (A cold sweet beverage).
Also, I think this tea will be one of those ones that I save for when I want a sweet treat and something completely different.
I have been hesitate to try this one at all… I don’t like Oolongs. I have tried a few too, but most of the time I don’t like them. I think I had one oolong that I actually drank and that was a peach one from Teaopia. I didn’t even realize it was an oolong at that time.
Anyway, I got this one from a friend for Christmas and I’ve been putting off trying it ‘cause of it being an oolong. (Sorry friend!) I’m now wishing I had tried it sooner!
It was definitely a surprise to me. I agree with other reviews on here. The toasted and nutty part of the tea doesn’t come through at all. I notice the cinnamon for sure. And I notice the fruit. This tea should almost be called apple cinnamon fruit tea, or something like that.
It does taste about how it smells too. It smells more fruity and cinnamon-y then nutty or toasted. And too, the nutmeg is definitely another flavour that comes through too.
I do like this tea a lot. I’m going to really enjoy it!
So, I ordered this one online. It sounded really good.
I get it and open it up… and unfortunately the smell of this one was overwhelming, but not in a good way. From a distance it smells it good tho. It’s just up close where it smells funny to me.
Taste… I couldn’t do it. The funny smell that I had smelling it up close transfered to the taste. It smells too artificial or something, so that’s the taste that I had. I took like three sips and had to toss it. It tastes too funny to me. I didn’t get any cherry taste at all.
I really wanted to like this one, but I can’t do it. :(
This tea is very similar to another tea I have in my cupboard.
I don’t really notice the salt in it, but it is a nice caramel black tea.
I really like it. :)
