Made a fresh cup this morning with last night’s leaves…still so tasty! Kinda weak, of course, but definitely worth drinking. I am so going to get my money’s worth out of this tea!

I just love the hit of raspberry…it’s the kind of tea that makes you warm all over and automatically lifts your mood. it’s just plain amazing hot or cold.

Guh.

Let me just say that again.

Guuuuh.

This tea is amazing. I’m in love. (And I’m even more in love with my wife for bringing it home to surprise me.) This is tin-worthy material right here. This could easily become my favorite tea.

Shockingly tasty. I wasn’t expecting to like this (what’s with me trying teas I won’t like?) and it was delicious! I bought some for my mother in Tennessee, and I had a sample of it I kept back for me….boy, do I regret sending off that package this morning! She’ll enjoy it though, and I’m happy to spread the tea love so far.

drank Cocomama Lime by DAVIDsTEA

I initially didn’t think that I’d be able to take this tea seriously just because this name (which was all but immediately shot down by my friends) – but I love Buttered Rum and I love lime, so this seemed fairly natural for me to want to try.

Similar to Fantasy Island – which doesn’t surprise me, considering they’re fairly similar teas – this gets better the longer it’s steeped. Unlike the Fantasy Island, this gets somehow both sickly sweet and quite bitter without warning – one sip was perfectly timed, the next was oversteeped.

Overall, it’s good, especially if you’re a fan of their Lime Bang. I’d recommend giving this a try if you like both coconut and lime, since the two flavours mingle quite well with one another around the black tea and the kola nut. I can’t help but to compare it to Fantasy Island, though, and this just pales in comparison for me.

I think you’ve described very well this tea, the taste doesn’t surprise or impress because it’s a little too much regular.

By far my favorite tea by Davids right now! It smells great and I love the cutesy pink color that comes from the beetroot. The taste is nice and sweet, it doesn’t need sugar. You don’t need to add anything to this tea really, it’s just so lovely.

I’ve been desperately trying to ration this tea since I only have a tin and a half left (only!). When I got up this morning I felt the blues trying latch onto me, so I just knew that I needed a warm pick-me-up-cup of Cloud Nine to bring with me to work. I can tell when it’s going to be one of those days and I automatically find myself reaching for this comforting tea of choice.

Mmmm it smells wonderful, soothing, and fresh – with a nice berry-kiss. It tastes just as wonderful and soothing too. A perfect mood enhancer for sure. Thanks Cloud nine for keeping me alive!

I am going through an extremely difficult time in my life and this is absolutely my go-to tea. I don’t mind if it is pure placebo effect or not, but the St-John’s Wort and black current blend really helps me to keep my spirits up to fight my demons during the day.

It is a strong black tea, so be careful to not oversteep it. For those who prefer tea sweetened, add a dash of honey but I don’t find that it needs anything else. The winter DavidsTea collection is fading away so I have to stock up now to help keep my mood up for the months to come.

Yum yum yum. I’m having a cruddy day and this is hitting just the right spot. I made four teas at once when I made this, two for kombucha and two for immediate consumption. I drink my teas lukewarm, so I don’t have to worry about one tea cooling off too much before I can get to it.

Anyway, yes. Yum! I love the licorice in this blend and it’s just a sweet, soothing cup that hopefully will help get rid of this migraine.

I’m finishing up my day with this one, since it tends to calm my tummy and headaches, both of which I have at the moment. I’m just not hungry today, which is weird and tells me I’m sick. I’ve made two full meals for myself today and couldn’t finish either. Blegh. This tea is still delicious and tasty, but I’m just not in the mood to finish my teas today, I guess.

sends hugs No being sick!

Wow, has my opinion changed on this one. I reach for it on rough days now, and since I’m dealing with overwhelming stress at work as well as some bs coming from here, this was definitely a day for this beauty.

I forgot about it while it was steeping, and it turned out no worse for the wear. Strong and minty and sweet, I am in love with this cup. I love, love, love licorice in teas, and this one definitely hits the spot. So glad we bought a tin. For me, it helps with my tummy aches and headaches and overall stress level…love.

I recently inherited a bag of this that my aunt didn’t like and needed to rid herself of, but I am only recently getting into mint teas and so have been avoiding trying it. But, since I can fully appreciate the stress-headache-stomach ache trifecta, and I usually tend to like the same teas as you… Me thinks this tea will be braved this week!

It’s absolutely lovely for whatever ails ya! I hope you like it!

I know I’m posting early today, but my night will be filled with driving to the States, listing everything I own, and having a massive panic attack.

This is Day #9 on the DT advent calendar, and it’s a good one. I’m enjoying my cup, but I’m not entirely sure I’d ever seek this one out. But after my morning of completely freaking out over all of this border stress, it’s helped calm me down a bit, which I am grateful for.

Cattibrie

Hope everything goes well for you. Happy thoughts.

I really enjoyed this tea today. It was on my list to try. Not sure if I will buy it either but I did enjoy it.

Indigobloom

Deep breaths! I hope it goes well, and enjoy the warmer weather down south while you can!
I tried this one as a sample one day. It was nice… but like you I’m not sure I would buy it

Well, it’s probably a good thing I don’t care for this tea, as my wife loves it and it helps with her headaches. It’s not bad, per se, it’s just not…well, it’s not my cup of tea. It’s just middling. Not good, not bad, just okay.

Loved the smell of this tea in the bag, and it smells even better once steeped, nice and fruity with a touch of bitter, not to sweet. I like this tea, but probably wont go out and buy a whole 100 g of it…

I don’t know what it is about this tea, but just the smell of it is enough to make me happy as a clam :) upon drinking it i feel a rush of pure happiness, from head to toe.

it’s the perfect winter drink, as i am reminded of summer every time i enjoy a cup of the earl’s garden.

Because, clearly, I’m not reviewing this enough. (But it’s one of their newest, so that makes it okay, right?)

I resteeped my leaves from earlier to see if this is the exception that proves my never-resteep-black rule, and it seems it is – I kind of forgot about it, so it was steeping for about ten minutes, and it’s incredibly strong (and just a teensy bit bitter from oversteeping), but it’s actually the best cup of this that I’ve had so far! The steeping time should definitely be on the longer side; this tea just seems to get better with strength!
