I declared today as sipdown day and sipdown day it is! Yes. Three teas sipped down is a success for me hahha
But I am slowly getting rid of my teas! Packing them up into smaller bags to give to friends. I think I’m almost to a 2 digit number! And to think today I started off with like 175 teas wow.
This tea smells good, almost like Midsummer Night’s Dream? Definitely looks like it’d taste much better iced though. It does have a bit of a musty undertone to it, but still bright from the lime.
Tastes of dusty lime haha. I don’t know. It’s the teas that have dried fruit that always have that wet basement/dank undertone to it. No matter how bright the fruit is, it’s like wet basement.
((that wet basement would probably be gone if I iced this though… but I’m just way too lazy))
Oh my, this tea is fabulous. I bought a cup of it iced and it was delicious. I really like the lemon curd flavour and there was definitely a cakey taste too. I read some other people found the lemon gave a tart/sour taste, but I didn’t find that at all. I really can’t find any faults in this blend, everything about it was delicious!
Flavors: Cake, Cheesecake, Fruity, Lemon Zest, Sweet
I tried a sample of this when I stopped in to David’s to see if the Mother’s Day tins were in stock (they were out of stock.) I really like the ingredients of this blend. There are a lot of sweet, fruity, and cream notes, however I find the coconut overwhelming.
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Fruit Punch, Fruity, Pineapple
I love this tea, suprised at some of the lower ratings but maybe its persoal preference. I love the peppermint with the hint of chocolate. Feels like I am sipping a tea version of minty hot chocolate as it almost has a velvety mouth feel…one of my Davids Tea faves!
Flavors: Peppermint, White Chocolate
Dry leaf: Vibrant tropical aroma with red fruit high notes.
Liqueur: Rosy pink color. Smells of pineapple and ripe strawberry.
Flavour: Creamy mouth feel with a coating sweetness. Red fruit flavors combine with pineapple top notes.
Flavors: Cranberry, Fruity, Pineapple, Sweet
Dry leaf: Creamy coconut aromas with a hint of mango.
Liqueur: Creamy green and yellow. Smells of raw coconut with a slight hint of mango.
Flavour: Coconut dominates while the ripe mango and chamomile add sweetness. The mouth feel is soft and the aftertaste subtle.
Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple, Sweet
I like the pu’erh based used in this tea. It has a hint of cocoa but is also woody (like bone-dry fire log) and sweet. The tea is quite tannic (even a bit astringent in the after taste) but I don’t find it unpleasant because it works with the chocolate. The dark chocolate flavour comes through really strong and it is very rich. This would be amazing with milk. I don’t get a ton of toffee flavour specifically, but I do find there is some vanilla or creamy tastes in there. Personally I think this tastes a lot like the liqueur Bailey’s/Mudslides. It tastes a lot like a chocolate liqueur to me. I intend to make this with milk and sweetener and serve it over ice next time I want a creamy cold drink.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Tannic, Vanilla, Wood
I was surprised at how authentic the cotton candy flavour was. The rooibos is nice, although a white base would have been tasty too.
There is a lot of sugar cane/caramelized sweet flavours. There are some nice vanilla notes too. It is a sweet tea (which should be obvious because it is called Cotton Candy.) I really like this with milk or almond milk.
Flavors: Candy, Cotton Candy, Rooibos, Sugarcane, Vanilla
One of my best friends told me this is her favourite tea, so I was very glad to receive a sample of Toasted Walnut from Tea In Spoons. She told me I would love this tea because it is nutty and sweet, and she is absolutely correct.
The mellow green tea was a good base in my opinion because it allows the others flavours to show through. The green tea is not bitter or astringent at all, it is actually fairly subdued. The walnut flavour is excellent. The milky vanilla taste makes it seem like a latte even without adding milk. The nuts add a lot of toasted sweet flavours, almost like the pan roasted nuts put on top of almond roca.
I tried this tea straight and it was fantastic, but I wanted something richer so I added half a teaspoon of agave and a touch of milk. It was basically a dessert with all the vanilla and warm flavours.
I highly recommend this tea to anyone who likes vanilla/dessert teas or nut flavoured blends.
Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Milk, Nuts, Nutty, Roast nuts, Roasted, Roasted nuts, Smooth, Sweet, Toasted, Vanilla, Walnut
This is the tea that defies everything I knew about my tea preferences. I wasn’t even planning on trying this based on my strong dislike of Pom Tango and growing aversion to hibiscus teas. Add to that the presence of stevia AND rooibos and how could this tea be anything but horrible? However, it happened to be on sample and you don’t say no to samples. Well this is actually really good! Kind of a Minute Maid fruit punch vibe to it. It is sweet (and I would still have preferred if there wasn’t stevia in it, but it doesn’t ruin it) and more like drinking juice than tea, but it’s got a strong refreshing flavour that’s exactly what you want sometimes.
