While this was not as rich as I was hoping for, it is very yummy. Mild flavours of both mint and dark chocolate that blend superbly with an earthy roobios.

This tea smells absolutely amazing and I was very excited to try it! It definitely disappointed though… I found there to be quite a bitter aftertaste which ruined what would otherwise have been an excellent tea. Maker error perhaps? I will have to try again soon…

Unlike with Fantasy Island, I found this one to be quite good and not bitter at all! Would definitely recommend trying again; maybe try not-quite boiling water and a shorter steep time? I’m pretty sure I got at least a couple good steeps out of it too.

Tried it as a free tea for leap day, enjoyed it enough to buy some. I find the combination of mint and spices to be excellent, with neither flavour overpowering the other. Will have to try it brewed by myself, but should be good for my sinuses which tend to act up a lot!

I picked Green and Fruity myself. There’s something in the North African Mint that wasn’t agreeing with me.

drank Fresh Lemon Zest by Teaopia

My very first loose leaf tea, absolutely responsible for getting me hooked! Nice mild taste, the lemon taste is subtle but really brings it together. Not too finicky either, I have poured hotter than optimal on it but it still tasted fine.

I got it for the first time as a cup to go and absolutely loved it! I bought a tin of it later and have made it a few times since, and while its been good, it wasn’t the same. I might not be making it in the right proportions or something but i haven’t managed to get the same earth shattering flavour myself. Its still a yummy dessert tea though, and I especially enjoy blending it with chocolate rocket (one teaspoon of each).

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA
95 tasting notes

Again I don’t really like black tea, but this one smells and tastes like cream soda, so I quite enjoy it. Its really hard to believe it contains no sugar, you certainly don’t have to sweeten it! Its yummy but the fruit pieces are really big, hard to get a good balance of black tea/fruit pieces.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

I don’t typically like black teas but this one is delicious. Chocolatey and and a little bit floral, nice and sweet.

First time I tried this I was absolutely in love. It was one of my first David’s teas and I loved it, but as I started trying more and more of their teas I liked it less in comparison. I am excited to try it iced!

This one was a taste of something smelling better than it tasted. The smell is amazing, however the taste is only good. Pomegranate taste isn’t as strong as I would like, but it is still a good tea!

This tea was just too hot for me, I found it unpleasant to drink something this spicy. If you are a spice lover, I imagine it would be fantastic…

I enjoy it as is, but on the days where the spice is just a bit too much I find adding a little bit of sugar (I use rock sugar but brown sugar works nicely too) will help with the hot bite. It still has a lot of kick but if you’re trying to find a way to make it easier to deal with I found that works. Its one of my favourites though when I’m craving something hot, but I also adore hot lips and cinnamon hearts!
