I really liked this tea, since it made me feel really festive during and after drinking it. Due to the sprinkles, there’s a sweet aftertaste, but it’s not overwhelming. Not to mention the aroma was great :). It’s in in the top chart of rooibos teas I’ve tried, but, it is not my favourite.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cotton Candy, Sweet

Sweet smooth buttery black tea with subtle black tea flavour with very little saltiness, just enough. Very slight coconut finish. It reminds me very much of David’s Buttered Rum black tea which is one of my top favourites. I drink my tea black and unsweetened. I think I will be keeping this one close by.

Flavors: Butter, Butterscotch, Caramel, Coconut

Preparation

Reminds me of the type of tea they serve at sushi restaurants.Still very good, just a little generic. Very toasty,warm and familiar.

May I suggest TenRen’s version of this tea. It is less generic, more toasty without becoming nauseating.

I’ve never had a wine give me a headache until this one so I figured I’d drink some tea to help. As far as pumpkin goes it’s very subtle. The artificial taste is throwing me off though.

Thought I would love it, but for some reason I just can’t enjoy the entire cup. I believe it might be a bit too heavy on the walnut taste for a real “cookie” flavor.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by David's Tea
857 tasting notes

Gosh darn it, I thought this would be a sipdown but somehow I never added this sample to my cupboard. It’s fine. IT’S FINE.

It’s heading into winter in little old Hobart town and the air has gotten quite crisp in the last couple of weeks (WELCOME, WINTER!!!). It’s a nice quiet Monday night on the desk at work so I’ve brewed this up to sip while watching My Shows.

Uh… it’s really tasty? Not sure why the negativity from others, I’m not getting any overwhelmingly punchy spice, it all sits nicely and it smells LOVELY. I brewed in a pot with maybe 3/4 hot water, 1/4 steamed milk, added a little bit of honey and yum! Just what I wanted it to be for this kind of weather.

I really liked the smell of this one. The taste ? No so much unfortunately. I’m really sad that I didn’t like it but this one is a miss for me.

I really liked this one. I added milk as the black tea was strong for me and it tasted like a weak hot chocolate. It wasn’t overly spicy but subtle. Nice as a holiday tea and will buy more next season.

Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy

I love Earl Grey so much, so I was compelled to try this. It was okay! Odd. Probably would have been better without milk, because that experience was truly disgusting and tainted it for me. I should try this again. Fruity earl grey probably works well (when done right!)

Flavors: Bergamot, Berries, Earl Grey, Floral

I love chai. This is pretty good, but not my all-time favourite chai. Saigon chai wins.

Holy Crud! How did I get up to 320+ teas?!?!?!

So I guess someone on our international flight decided to be super sweet and share their cold/flu because my poor hubby has been sick as a dog for the last two days which could be managed with sleep, recouperation and chicken soup except he’s got this insane work thing going on at the moment and he’s walked back into 12 hour days onto of evening networking events… So I’m making him this tea with honey every chance I get which is really helping his scratchy throat and cough a bunch… I never would of thought to mix this with honey but it actually adds a nice touch of sweetness to the delicious toasty popcorn flavor… A favorite of mine and glad it’s helping the hubby cope with evil illness

Still getting over a horrific cold/flu myself and did some Genmaicha as well. Very soothing for sure. The honey is a brilliant idea – Sounds delicious!

I have drank many types of rooibos because they are caffeine free but I chose this for a tea that I could use as desert at night and the no caffeine was a bonus. I figured as a fan favorite it would be obsolete in regards to its taste but I find it to taste more like piece of angel cake that has been toasted around some wood. While that taste is not nasty, it is not the kind of sweetness I was looking for. I’ve tried steeping this about six different ways I am not finding it to be any better than other desert rooibos that I have had.

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea

Ahh this tea,
Yeah it’s spring but I keep turning to this tea lately.
The weather where I live is like October right now which is so unusual.
We’re used to tons of snow and never ending cold and it’s only -7 – +2 and no snow on the road.
Anyways lol, I enjoy this tea straight as usual. it has savoury flavours just right.
When I drink this tea, it feels like I’m drinking a rich, high caloric drink.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Pumpkin

One of my favourite white/green tea blends, I discovered this one last summer and ever since I have it once or twice every week. It does have some strong fragrance as others have suggested, but I guess all tea blends with rose petals have these artificial notes.

Flavors: Pear, Rosehips

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 500 OZ / 14786 ML

Received this from EmilyGee to try, thanks Emily!

It smells more chocolate/orange dry than it does when brewed. I don’t sense the orange anywhere except maybe a slight hint of citrus right at the end. But it’s ever so faint, I miight even just be willing my tastebuds to notice it.
The chocolate is there, but in a very earthy sense as opposed to the sweet commercial sense. Or it could just be that I’m not familiar with pu-erh tea and the earthiness is from that.
I don’t think it’s orangy enough for my liking, so I doubt I’d buy it in future.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Earth

Ok, so I didn’t like this tea when I had it before, but it was actually pretty great today and yesterday. Maybe it’s because I have a sore throat and the licorice is soothing? Either way, I’m enjoying every drop.

And that puts me down at 163, until my Verdant order bumps me back up!
