No that bad of an earl grey. It doesn’t get bitter when the bag is left in. my go-to tea at Mickey Dee’s.
121 Tasting Notes
This tea first got me because of the smell. I was in the store and decided to smell the winter collection teas. And honestly this one stood out the most smell-wise. It smelled like mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I had to get a 25g bag just to try it for that reason alone. When I got around to tasting it this morning I enjoyed the aroma whilst it was steeping. Then I tried it and found it quite yummy. That minty flavour is not way overpowering which is good and it just felt like I was at the ice cream parlour choosing my mint chocolate chip. I may have to go get a tin of this soon!
Really loving this tea, it is kind of like earl’s garden and buttered rum, but on the more subtle side. It really does taste like I’ve added milk to my tea without actually adding any. Really one of my faves.
I liked this one, it was really comforting and soothing. Not sure if I tasted marshmallow, but there was a nice light taste. The aroma made me want to cuddle up to a fire.Going to have to buy some more of this online when my 25g bag goes.
This is such a cool tea, you can smell it from afar, kindly inviting you to sit down and enjoy a mug. I really think this tea embodies fall in all its qualities and taste. This morning, I added some milk to Indian Summer and it tastes phenomenal.
La la lemon, I’m noticing today has a nice strength about it tea-wise. I don’t know how to put it, but this tea is just strong and soothing all at the same time. I love the aroma of this tea. There’s something about a good smelling black tea with a hint of lemon that just says yummm.
So few hours later and I’m still kind of buzzing.. .loving this drink.
I love this one… def one of my top Kusmi teas in my collection, though I love most of my Kusmi collection equally, they all have their own unique flavour and personality. Vladimir is very similar to Anastasia and St. Petersburg, almost like a middle ground between the two. It has the subtle embrace of flavour and and the soothing qualities of Anastasia.
Anastasia… my first love in the world of kusmi. And to this day, I still have it as a part of my coplection. today felt like te perfect day to just relax, read and have a kusmi day. I started off with St. Petersburg, andnow Anastasia… and perhaps I’ll finish off with Prince Vladamir later. I honestly love Kusmi tea in general because this company has so many unique and tasteful blends to offer. Anastasia is a earl grey orange blossom blend that gives the tea drinker a tender embrace of warmth, comfort and ease. Drinking this tea is relaxing even though its a black tea.
Well, Today I decided to be adventurous and try out a Matcha latte from Second Cup. Not going to lie, I was a bit nervous ordering it, but good thing I did, it is yummy and I know it will give me a much needed energy boost in a little while. I started tasting the foam at the top and the earthy taste was really strong, but once you mix it, it is a delightful taste. The earthiness is still there, but it is subtle and subdued. I am so happy second cup does lactose-free lattes. Yumm.
So this is the best of the TAZO collection that I have tasted thus far. I really don’t know why I have so lack of a love for this company, but I swear it’s because the teas are just so overpowering and lacking in an actual taste. I tried this tea as per a reccomendation of a fellow steepster and it’s not completely bad, like I said, def one of the best TAZO tea I have tried. This tea was somewhat relaxing and soothing when I drank it. If I go to starbucks again, that is what I will order.
Everthing about this tea just makes me think warm and soothing embrace. I really love this black tea from kumsmi. The caramel infused in the tea is the embracing feature and honestly, on a cold day when I like to walk outside or just do my homework, St. Petersburg is one of my go-to’s. I don’t like brewing a full pot of this tea, just the mug. But it is good for more than one steep ( abt. 2-3). So save the bag if you feel like having more later.
Well , for someone not being a big chai fan, I like this tea. And what I like most about it is the fact that it doesn’t have that distinct chai taste that I have come to dislike. When I first tried this tea, it was because it was the tea of the day sample and who can refuse a sample? Well I tried it and wasn’t completely sold. Then my cousin made a recipe from this tea and she said it was amazing. So I decided to buy a 50g bag of the tea just to try out the recipe. I made the cupcakes and they were amazing. Let’s fast forward a few weeks to Halloween day where I tried the chai again, but in drink form. It was Halloween and I was feeling spirited and decided to have a pumpkin chai latte. And it was yummy, been hooked ever since. I’m sad because the fall collection is no longer in stores, but I will for sure buy some online.
So I decided to give this tea another try … and I just don`t know how to feel. I thought if I added more than what was required it would taste more like something, but no. It just disappointed me again. Maybe this just isn’t the tea for me.
I am really trying to get into mate these days to combat my tiredness. So I went to David’s Tea this weekend and decided to get 25 grams to try this tea out. I really don’t know how to feel about this tea, it’s description is that it is very chocolatey and makes great lattes. So I decided to make a latte this morning. Verdict? Meh.. like it wasn’t really terrible in any respect, I guess I just expected a stronger flavour…. I found it way weaker than I thought it would be. I am going to try steeping a larger amount next time I try it, because I like the taste, it just needs to be a little stronger.
Its rather a good tea for being out. I really love this tea because I can just leave the bag in and the taste doesn’t get overpowering. I love adding milk into it once in a while, but drinking it black is equally nice. It is really a comforting tea to drink… definitely a keeper on those cold days.
So I am recently really into jasmine tea. A few weeks ago I walked into David’s to try the straight leaf promotion ( straight leaf teas for 1$), and thought there couldn’t be any loss to try jasmine black pearls. I thought that jamsmine + black would = a strong and bitter tea, but I was wrong. This tea is so tasteful and not overpowering whatsoever. It has the soothing and warming taste of black tea and that spark of Jasmine that I just love so much. So for me this tea is really meant to exist.
Zen… I guess one of the Tazo teas that will get a higher rating. This was an ok green tea with lemongrass in it. It was somewhat soothing, but nowhere near the soothing that I usually like. I might try it again if I go to starbucks… but I am not entirely sure. Maybe it deserves a second chance.
Meh.. that’s what I think of when this tea is mentioned. It really doesn’t do it for me. I love earl grey, it is one of my favorite teas, but the tazo one is just not the best earl grey I’ve had. I find with this the bag can only steep for a few seconds and needs to be pulled out before it becomes too bitter.
It wasn’t the worst tea that I drank, but it will be one of those teas that I try only once and say, it was nice drinking you, but you just aren’t my cup of tea. I like how it initially tasted, but I found that the spices in the tea had a way of lingering just a little to long in my mouth after drinking the tea was done.
For someone who isn’t a coffee drinker (like myself), this is the perfect solution. Simply the zest is my new morning go-to tea for energy. I recently just got 50 grams of this tea to try out, and I already know that I want a tin of this delicious and very much useful tea. Aside from the amazing fact that it wakes me up, the taste of simply the zest is subtle and soothing. Its like you don’t expect this tea to pack a punch of energy. I really love the lemongrass. I am looking forward to trying out other mate teas in the future. I love brewing this by the pot when I am studying.
This is a wonderful blend of green and red rooibos with papaya, mango, peach, and apple ( like the are actual pieces in the tea itself). It tastes so amazing iced, it’s like drinking a nice drink on the beach. I am sure while served warm that it offers a different taste altogether. I personally don’t add anything to it, this tea tastes amazing on it’s own, but everyone always likes something different. I have really and truly enjoyed taking this tea with me to classes, it gives me a boost of taste without the calories.I have had this delightful blend warm. This totally happened by chance. A few nights ago I was brewing some green and fruity for my next day and decided to just try a sip of it warm. Turns out I love this drink hot or cold. This is good because I can continue to love this amazing drink during the fall. Happy Drinking everyone!
So this is my new, (well relatively new) favorite or rather my summer favorite tea-wise. I just absolutely love everything about blueberries, pie, pancakes, bagels, muffins…. I could just go on forever when it comes to that one word. What I never expected was to find a love of blueberries in tea. Weird eh? ( something Canadians always say ) So this just happened to be the tea of the day when I went into David’s Tea earlier this summer. I was just shopping in the mall and decided to fill up on the tea of the day. While me and my fiancée were strolling the mall and sipping on this drink, we fell in love… with the tea instantly. We basically downed this so fast and went back to David’s Tea to fill up on more. While we were there, it only seemed logical to buy some in a tin to take home, so we did just that.
I walked into David’s Tea and just decided to go with it, mostly to compare it to the beloved Earl of Lemon. The tastes are both similar with lemon, but they both take on different aspects of lemon flavour. While Earl of Lemon is more sweet and tasting like a pie, La La Lemon gives me a soothing and more rustic taste. It’s really nice to drink on a cold day such as today.
