drank Coconut Grove by DAVIDsTEA
354 tasting notes

Hmmmm… not bad, but this tea lacks a little je ne sais quoi? If you like coconut, I would say to give this a try. But I could take or leave it. I must say that I purchased this tea on a whim, because it was on sale, rather than because I thought I’d like it. It’s not the worst coconut tea I’ve tried, just a little underwhelming. I’m tempted to add something, but I can’t quite place what would make this suit my taste a little more. Perhaps if I drank this in the summer while eating a juicy slice of pineapple I’d enjoy it more. But this is the last of this one, and I have no plans to put it on my repurchase list, so I guess I’ll never know.

Flavors: Coconut

I remember this one-from what I recall it was part of the summer collection 2 years ago. I remember I didn’t care for it iced especially-it just seemed (watered down). I remember mango fruit punch being much better. And tropicalia!

@Kristal I agree, Mango fruit punch is a much juicier one

Oh yeah, that’s the stuff! This Honeybush is one of my Fall favorites. I sometimes find that the honeybush base lacks the strength that I’m looking for, but this one delivers 100% in the flavor department. The ginger isn’t overpowering, and melds wonderfully with the pumpkin cheesecake flavor. Definitely one to keep on my re-order list.

Flavors: Cheesecake, Ginger, Pumpkin

Nummers! I don’t grab for this one often and now I’m not sure why. I especially love the toffee flavor. Does Dragonwell have more caffeine than other green teas? I felt like I had more pep in my step today.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Toffee

It’s nice to see you around! I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering where you had gone. :)

I took this tea to work in my travel mugs today. It was tasty, but I must say that it tastes much better in a regular mug where I can enjoy the aroma.

Preparation
2 tsp 25 OZ / 750 ML

I haven’t had the chance to write many Steepster reviews these days, but I felt I needed to record this one… I’m really enjoying it. I bought it as part of a sampler set and I’m so glad I had the chance to try it. The almond comes through more strongly in the smell than chocolate, but in the sip I get a nice balance of chocolate and almond on the black tea base. I don’t know the exact temperature that I use, but I boil the water and let it sit to cool off for about 3-5 minutes before pouring it over the tea leaves. This makes a lovely Fall/Winter tea. I would definitely re-order this one.

You disappeared for one year. Welcome back Canadianadia, nice to see you around !

canadianadia

Thanks Ysurella – good to see you too! I’ve been keeping busy- all the while drinking my tea of course. I hope to be able to get onto Steepster at least a little more frequently. I miss the friendly chit-chat, and being introduced to new teas. Cheers!

I finished this one recently. I’m sad to see it go :( I just realized what a great transition tea it is for the Fall. It retains some of the lightness that I tend to crave in Spring/Summer tea with the green tea base, but has the dessert-like sweet flavoring on top of a roastiness that I gravitate towards in the Fall/Winter. A definite restock for my cupboard.

I still enjoy this one (apparently significantly more than others on Steepster). It’s more of a Spring/Summer tea for me, but I’ll still probably pick up an occasional sample if it’s available during the rest of the year.

It’s tasty as a hot tea, and even better iced. In my opinion the water temperature suggested in the directions are way too hot though- I find I have to lower the temperature significantly otherwise the leaves burn and the tea tastes bitter.

drank SBT: Monkey Fart by 52teas

I love the cheeky monkey on the package- is it completely wrong that it reminds me of my husband?
The tea and banana flavor are nicely balanced. The smell reminds me of banana runts. My brother could smell it from down the hall and thought I was smashing bananas to make banana bread. I don’t make iced tea by the 2-quart very often, but I plan to repurchase this one.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Teehee! Did you tell your hubby the monkey reminds you of him?

tigress_al

Haha or maybe you shouldn’t tell him that he looks like a monkey. Lol

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

I finished this one a few days ago. It’s a lovely light limey summer tea. It’s not a tea that needs to live in my cupboard year round; it’s more of a seasonal favorite for me. I plan to pick up another sample of this next spring/summer, but now that the weather is cooling down, I can feel myself gravitating towards the heavier tasting teas.

i really liked this one… but had scribbles not sent it to me i never would have tried it.

I’ve been finishing off a bunch of samples over the past few weeks, but with work, a touch of summer fun, the renos, and prepping for the move, I didn’t have the chance to write any tealogs lately. I’ll have to do a little catch up now. This honeybush is certainly coconutty. Unfortunately, coconut is not really my favorite flavor so I won’t be buying this one again. If you like coconut I’d say to give this one a go.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
