This is a darn fine tea. A wonderful friend/co-worker gave me a little sample of this tea, along with a cinnamon honey stick. Brewed tea at boiling for 4 min, dropped that honey in there and OMG. So. Good. A great spiced tea with deeper flavour than some, probably from the carob. If you like chais or anything of that nature, you will LOVE this. Must buy!

Wonderful Erin brought to work a bag of Red Velvet Cake for me today. She is wonderful! And so is this tea! It smelt AMAZING. And the flavour payoff was reasonable, considering how crazy good it smelt. I will definitely need to purchase some of this asap. It is so so good. Imagining it as a latte.. yes please!

My lovely friend/co-worker passed this on since she had an allergic reaction to it. And I have to say, I LOVE it!
It tastes lighter and fresher than any bagged Earl Grey I have had, and I enjoy the super bergamonty taste. Definitely a huge fan, and makes me want to buy other DT Earl Grey’s. Thanks for sharing Erin :)

Smells amazingly like grapefruit but not tasting too much of it yet. A nice light tea however, and maybe with some experimentation, could be a favourite.

Had a very Merry Christmas, mostly since I was showered in tea gifts!
(imagine swimming in tea like Scrooge McDuck).
I wasn’t sure about this tea due to so-so ratings, but I really enjoyed it! I feel it could benefit from being more cranberry-y, so might dice up berries before next attempt, maybe that will help them steep better? I always wonder about dried fruit.. I can’t imagine a raisin imparting that much flavour, but I am no tea scientist. Anyhow, was a great light before-bed tea and if there is still some at the store, will treat myself to more!
Happy New Year all :)

After seeing DaisyChubb’s review of the latte, I made a mental note to check that out. And it was good! Sooo good. On a cold afternoon, I got this while my friends got Starbucks drinks. Usually I’d be ridiculously jealous, drinking the slightly lower cal option while trying to sniff the yummy Starbucks eggnog latte, but I was as happy as a clam. This tastes mostly like marshmallow to me.. just a big cup of milky marshmallow. Yummmmm. Not sure if it’d be as good, non-latte, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt!

This might be my most favourite tea, ever. First, it is foolproof. You can steep it for ever, with hot hot water, and it only ever gets more delicious. You don’t need milk or sugar, but if you add them, equally delicious.
Secondly, it is so cinnamonny and sweet, it is just heaven. Its like DT’s Glitter and Gold with a little more “umph” (sp?!). It also has many resteeps to it. Ooh I love it. It’s really worth it.. Yum..

I am SO not thrilled by this tea. Very false advertising. Compared to their cranberry, or ginger peach teas, this one tastes nothing like you’d expect. There is talk of flowers in the description, and a rose bud on the box so I wonder if that’s is what’s ruining it for me.. something definitely is. It’s just OK. Sigh. Very sad! Also very sad is saving for a wedding which means buying more PC and less DT. Wedding = yay! Boring tea = no yay.

.. I don’t taste raspberries AT ALL!!
I will drink it all since it is tolerable, but won’t buy another box. Sigh, regret.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. Yum yum yum.
I like the “juxtaposition” of pear vs. vanilla. The ultimate show down! But instead they just get along and it’s delicious. I have yet to try it hot but my neighbour swears by it. I only have one cup left so we shall see! I kind of love it cold-steeped so might not happen.
If you want a tea that kind of tastes like a pear dessert of some sort, and is super crisp and refreshing, must try!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

I looove tea. I don’t understand it, or know much about it, but that doesn’t slow me down. I have developed a new respect for the beverage after beginning a weight-loss/health-gain journey. It’s so good for you! And so yummy. So it was an easy decision to devote some time to getting to know my new best friend.

I love you, Tea. You complete me.

P.S. I’m also a crazy cat lady waiting to happen
