Day 5 of my do-it-yourself scavenger hunt tea advent calendar!
Oh. My. God. If heaven offered tea, this would be the one they would have. Tastes minty, has the creaminess of white chocolate, and a nice zip at the end from the peppercorns. Yes, it’s oily on top. Cocoa butter, the only ingredient in good white chocolate, is oil. That’s why it’s called cocoa BUTTER. Come on, people. You complain about artificial flavours, and when they use chunks of white chocolate you complain about drinking cocoa butter. Poor muffins. I’d prefer an oil slick over a lab-created chocolate “flavour”. I definitely could do without the stevia, though. This tea is definitely sweet, but not so sweet I couldn’t drink it. It was a bit rough to have something so “desserty” in the morning. Would have been an awesome after-dinner bevvie. That will be my next cup! And I love that this is truly herbal; white chocolate contains no caffeine (the caffeine in chocolate is in the chocolate liquor, which is only added back in while making milk and dark chocolate). My mom would also love this.
Verdict: Will buy a kilogram. Ha.
Bought myself a milk frother today so I can start making lattes at home! So glad I did, I’m officially addicted, and this tea makes a fabulous latte.
After a rough day at work, I was thrilled to come home and see that my 50g of Fantasy Island had arrived! Although it was late, I felt that I needed to try this tea, despite the caffeine.
The dry smell is intoxicating…like a raspberry-coconut chocolate or something. I agree with other steepsters that it smells like there is chocolate in this blend, even though there isn’t. Steeped it for 5 mins on the initial steep and oh my god, this is delicious! Definitely a stronger coconut taste than anything else, which is fine because I am a fan of coconut. In fact, its interesting because as Im sipping it, it SMELLS like raspberries and tastes like coconut, so you almost get the entire experience between the two senses.
Decided to resteep this and this time, I steeped for 4 minutes and added a packet of sugar (which I usually don’t do to hot teas). I feel like the sugar brings out the tartness of the raspberry a bit more and is very enjoyable.
Its 12:57am and as Im nearing the end of this cup, I am highly considering a second resteep, which I have NEVER done. I think thats a sure sign that this is love <3
Whoops. Another tea that I forgot to add to my cupboard at some point.
This one is pretty good. A bit medicinal, a bit rooibosy. Reminds me a lot of those British blackcurrant licorice candies. Mmm, so good.
I preemptively put about 1/2 tsp rock sugar chunks into my basket as I steeped the tea, just because the scent made me crave candy. Mmm, candy. :)
If you like ribena or those candies I mentioned, this is one to try. If not, or if you really dislike rooibos… stay away! :) I will probably get more of this once my stash has diminished somewhat.
This tea made me realize I hate hibiscus. All my tea reviews are negative lately. Sigh, the DavidsTea winter and holiday collections just didn’t do it for me this year.
This tasted like mint chocolate when steeped with milk. Great for those who love mint chocolate. I hate mint. Why did I buy this? I try to stay open minded with teas, try a little if I don’t like it, there’s no harm. I may end up with an amazing find. For example, coco chai rooibos. Thought it was going to be a chocolate chai, yeaaaaa ended up being a coconut chai with peppercorns and cinnamon. Hate cinnamon, well LOVE THAT TEA. This tea was great. Not for me, but I enjoyed my 2 cups I had.
And another sipdown! I’m so excited for all the new teas that it’s easy to work on moving some of the old!
This one was ok, but not my favourite. (73)
First steep was very good. I have been looking for caffeine free tea alternatives for evening and night and this fits perfectly. The second steep is much more bland. This tea is perfect with a bit of honey.
Tea #43 from HHTTB2
Pft. Delicately spiced. Liars.
The hibiscus is strong in this tea, but surprisingly not offputting. It doesn’t have the mustiness and copperiness that sometimes comes with it. The tea is tart, but with fruity sweetness.
I like this a good deal more than I was expecting. Probably because it tastes like mulled wine.
Forever nuts… I wanna be forever nuts….
This tea keeps growing on me. From the lovely pink colour to the nutty and apply taste… I like it best brewed strong and long. Admittedly, I brewed it a little weaker than I should have this time, but I’m rating it as it is at its best (which is slightly more tea than the directions recommend and a longer brew). It goes down to a B+ to A- when as directed — a little too weak. However, the sweet, fruity taste is wonderful, and it’s a wonderful herbal cuppa.
So I haven’t bee on this site in a while but I’m back!! Missed me?? Ok so sadly I’m sick :( AND I had to walk from school all the way to the library to do homework
. BUT I did get all my homework done so that’s good :) ANYWAY, after I finished my homework I decided that I deserve to get myself some DAVID’sTEA to help fight this cold. So I walk in and my crush who works there helps me out (the store was completely empty except for me, the cute guy, and another younger guy who works there)ya ok so I ended up getting a Chai Guarana latte with agave and soyamilk. It tasted pretty good, it warmed me up, stopped my nose from running, and helped my throat! It tasted very coco like to me and gingery but also pretty tasty. Not the most extravagant flavor full tea but not horrible. All I know is that the guy working there is adorable!
I put this note under the wrong tea like two weeks ago, and I’m just now realizing my error! This is the tea I meant to put it under, not HoneyDew Mate!
This definitely a light fruity tea. I have come to realize though that so far I’m not a fan of the mate-based teas. I decided to give the rest of this one away to a coworker. I’m not going to finish it. It’s just something about it that I don’t care for…
Sipdown… sorta… not really, but out of the cupboard regardless
My last tasting note said very little on how I felt about the tea, but I have to say, today I’m in the same boat! I’m not sure if I’ve had this sample one year or two years, but either way, I’m not a huge fan. It’s definitely a strong green tea with a bit of fruitiness to it. I’m not getting a ton of fruitiness from it, but there is some there. I’m mostly getting the orange flavour, not much of anything else.
This one came in a sampler pack that my dad bought for me. I absolutely love that he buys me tea! It’s so awesome! Anyways, I don’t think I’d get this one again, but glad I got to try it all over again. I only have the smallest bit left so I shall count this as a SIPDOWN!
Smells of ginger and pepper. The first sip is hot and has a nice warming sensation to the throat. I only got 10g to try but will be going back for more. This is a nice afternoon tea for me.
Ugh. Worst. Migraine. EVER. last night. And it’s a mild, muted version of it today. Thank goodness for mint. I had a cup of this last night and a cup this morning, and it is helping ease the pain. Man, I really need straight peppermint tea, or spearmint. Which have people found more effective against headaches? I’m pleased with this tea because it also has a rich creaminess. I will have to stop by Davids for a few mint teas, and some Cold 911 again as well. See previous notes.
I like the smell of this tea when steeped. It smells like apple pie. I steeped it for at least 5 minutes, and I can smell the tea when I drink it, but the flavour is much milder than I’d like it. It would be nice if it had more flavour. I will be trying this again with a steep time closer to 7 mins, or put more than 1.5 tsp tisane per cup. I also like the fact that I can eat the fruit and nuts at the end.
I opened up my bag of this this morning, took a deep breath, and said “oh!”
This smells wonderful. You can smell the peppermint, but also a delicate touch of vanilla. Yum.
Brewed up, the beautiful smell continues. It reminds me of Read My Lips without the chocolate.
This sipps a little milder than it smells, but it leaves my mouth feeling tingly, and thats what I like in a mint tea.
I may have to hunt down a little more of this before the end of the holiday season, as its just my cup of tea.
Day #4 of the advent calendar! I was introduced to this one by a co-worker last year, and I loved it on the spot and it has been a staple in my tea shelf ever since. I steep this one for ages so the flavour is nice and strong, sans any sweetener. A classic that will always get 100% from me. <3
I have been wanting to try this for a while now and finally got around to purchasing a sample the other day. I was intrigued by the idea of a lemon black tea. I am a big fan of lemon, but it has to be just right, I love creamy lemon. So I added milk to this, and to my surprise it didn’t curdle. This tea was not very good, it is a candy lemon flavor. I found it tasted like a cross between lemon zinger herbal and tetley black tea. It also had a dry mouth feel which I can’t stand. I took two sips and then dumped it out. I’ll be throwing the other 6 g I have left in the garbage
I was not expecting to like these at all, but I was pleasantly surprised. Someone said that they tasted a bit like Cadbury mini eggs. I’d have to agree, but I’d add that they taste “dusty”. I’m not usually a fan of jasmine teas. I think that might be because I’ve had too many terrible jasmine teas in cheap Chinese restaurants…But I’ll never turn down a cup of tea. There isn’t enough tea flavor happening to make this something I’d drink regularly, but it was good.
What I really want are cookies, but I’m too worn out to bake tonight. Instead, I’m sitting here drinking this tea.
It’s pretty good. I don’t know that I’ll rush out and buy more, but I do enjoy this one. It’s best with some milk (or maple whipped cream) in it, to bring out the creaminess of the freeze-dried ice cream chunks.
I had this with a little steamed vanilla almond milk. It was nutty and so comforting on a cold winter evening!
Steeped with boiling water for 7 minutes
