drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas

Thank you T.C. for this sample! I was not sure about this tea when I first made it, but it grew on me. It is definitely a marshmallow tea! I was hoping to taste some of the caramel notes, but I couldn’t. I made mine with a little sweetener and cream. Overall, it is pretty good and I may consider purchasing this one in the future!

drank Awake™ Full Leaf Tea by Tazo Tea
64 tasting notes

I bought this tea with a discount and because I felt like having a no frills black tea. This tea was good, though I have had better. All in all, this is a nice tea to have when you’re not looking for something extravagant and in a pinch.

drank Chocolate Chili Chai by DAVIDsTEA
64 tasting notes

The aroma of this tea is wonderful! The chocolate is pronounced and you can smell the spice. Unfortunately, the smell does not match the taste. I don’t know if I brewed this wrong, but it seems to be pretty weak. I even added more tea leaves and made sure the water was at a sufficient temperature. It got a bit darker, but not much. I was hoping this one would be full bodied. I’m glad this was a sample, otherwise I would have been sorely disappointed.

I am really enjoying this one! The caramel is slight, as strawberry is predominant. Still balanced and tastes wonderful. This tea really satisfies one’s sweet tooth. :-)

This is a good tea. The lemon is not overpowering and it is very refreshing as an iced tea.

Received this one as a sample and I enjoy this one very much. It is definitely fruity and yummy! I made this as an iced tea with a little sweetener. I may have to buy this one for the hot summer days that are approaching :-)

This is a wonderful tea! I have a fondness for almost anything black currant and this tea does not disappoint! I wish they sold this in a caffeinated version, but the taste is still amazing. I added sweetener and cream. The currant flavor is not too astringent nor is it fake. I will by buying more of this one shortly.

This tea is very good! The smell of the dry tea is delicious. It smells good enough eat! I brewed for 5 minutes and added sweetener and cream. This tea is very good! It’s bold, but doesn’t overpower the hazelnut flavor. There are mini-chocolate chips in the mix, but the chocolate notes are not very detectable when brewed. I think this tea is worthy of becoming a latte :-)

drank Snow Bunny (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
64 tasting notes

I received this as a sample with my order. The smell of the dry mix was mostly banana to me with some walnut. Steeped, it reminded me very much of banana nut bread. It had a good base of black tea and I can drink this almost any time. I don’t know if I would purchase this one, but am glad I got to experience it.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
64 tasting notes

Oh Canada… Oh, what a beautiful tea! The initial smell of this was maple, but not overly so. The taste is of pure maple syrup! The only thing I love nearly as much as pumpkin is maple and this didn’t taste fake. It’s not thick or overly sweet. This tea is a balanced dessert tea. I have a feeling I might run out of this one soon…

Profile

Bio

Hello there! I’m Allie and I am no longer a Psychology undergraduate student! At this stage, I am trying to find a job and prep for the ever so fun process of applying to graduate programs. Wish me luck!

When I originally joined Steepster, I was trying to kick my coffee habit. This brought me into a love of tea. Even though I now drink both in moderation, I seem to go through coffee and tea phases. While I love coffee, tea is almost more fun. There are so many different kinds and blends to choose from! I tend to gravitate toward sweet and dessert-type teas, due to eliminating all sugar and grain from my diet nearly four years ago. I enjoy all types of tea though! The only types that tend to be hit or miss are green and pu-erh blends thus far. Otherwise I am still open to trying nearly anything!
