I bought this for my boyfriend (who loves Earl Grey) because it seemed smelled lovely and I was willing to give it a try. I usually don’t like Earl Grey tea, but I love this one! The vanilla adds a smoothness and richness and this tea doesn’t have the astringency that I usually associate with strong black tea. The bergamot is not too strong and there is a slight note of caramel. With a touch of milk and sugar this tea is fantastic.

Hot or iced this tea is amazing! I usually don’t sweeten my teas but this is phenomenal with a touch of agave/sugar/honey to bring out more of the fruit flavours. It’s like a lemongrass chai and I make myself a cup of this whenever I’m in the mood for chai but don’t want caffeine. This is one of the teas that I keep with me when I travel because I can drink it anytime, on it’s own or after a meal.

This is a nice, light tea and the cherry flavour is not too strong or overpowering. In fact there is a nice floral quality to this tea. I like it but my housemate said it tasted like those red lollipops you get from the dentist so try it and see?

First impression of this tea: it tastes like chocolate-covered strawberries. With each sip I detect another note – the bitterness from the black tea, a bit of astringency, the fruitiness of the strawberries. This makes for a nice dessert tea and I don’t need to add sugar to it.

I love this tea – it’s like a warm glass of serenity. The licorice imparts a natural sweetness and the anise gives it a little warmth. If you don’t like licorice root in your tea then you won’t like this at all, but if you do you have to give this a try. It’s phenomenal!

drank Vata Ayurvedic by DAVIDsTEA

DavidsTea used to have a tea called “Vata Ayurvedic” that was phenomenal but it was discontinued for about a year and this current one was introduced. I don’t like it – it’s too spicy (from the ginger) and citrusy and I don’t find it calming at all.
