Mmmm this tea is delicious! Smells like sweet almonds with a touch of cinnamon. Initially, you taste the rose blossoms, and almonds with coconut. When you swallow you taste ginger,apple, and pepper. Then the after taste goes back to almonds. The rooibos goes lovely with the almonds. Mmmm a great blend of flavours!

I re-steeped this one. The second cup had less almond flavour but more cinnamon and ginger. Was still really good!

Unlike most of the reviews, I actually like the taste of this one. Tastes exactly like it smells – like ‘Vicks VapoRub.’ But, well, good! Minty, herb-y and refreshing somehow. Works wonders on colds and allergies for me. One tea I plan to stock year-round.

The smell of this tea dry does nothing for me. Smells sweetly alcoholic (more like cookie dough gone bad). But it does taste pretty great! Not overly sweet and definitely aptly named. The smell softens once steeped as well. A good dessert tea. I’d buy again to keep on hand for an after-dinner treat when I’m too full for real cookies.

I really wanted to like this tea since creamsicles were my favourite as a child. I was really disappointed with it though – the stevia (which I’m not a fan of) left a bad taste in my mouth and the tea had a scum on it. Wouldn’t buy again.

This is my stress reliever tea. When I’m not feeling great or having a bad day at work, I make a big pot of this and breathe it in. Breathe in…stress out…lather rinse repeat.

I can’t survive without this tea. I’ve become a bit of an evangelist with it – even so far as buying a tin for the office staff. I swear by it. Colds, allergies, even when I need a pick me up – it’s always with me.

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
97 tasting notes

I am not the biggest fan of pineapple on the planet. Especially, for some reason, in tea. I haven’t really found a pineapple tea that works for me and doesn’t taste like tropical death—or soap. I got this one as a sample in my (huge) tea order so I figured why the heck not.

I liked the pineapple. It’s not kick you in the face pineapple but a nice subtle flavor. I really loved the hint of apricot. It’s one of my favorite flavors and tempers the sweetness of the pineapple. The oolong was a bit light for me but still good and added a nice creaminess to the tea.

This is totally not a tea I would have purchased on my own but I did like it. I will probably buy more for the summer because it would probably be much better iced.

Like the description says, just opening it is fun. The little tea nest has a earthy smell that is delicious. Contrary to the warnings of the salesperson I didn’t find it really strong. Perhaps the second steeping will be? Will add notes later. It has a nice light flavour and a very dark brew. Lovely. A new favv.

drank Wild Black Yunnan by DAVIDsTEA

Has a malty, earthy taste. You can almost taste the “wildness” of it. The brew is dark and strong, goes well with a bit of honey and milk. Re-steeped once, the brew was much less intense but still very flavourful.

I have a sample pack of this from one of the David’s Tea crackers that my Mom and I opened on Christmas morning. I’m in denial that Christmas is already gone for another year, so I decided to enjoy a cup of this today to prolong the Christmas spirit for a little longer. This blend smells really minty and vanillaish, and is so cute with the teeny-tiny candy canes. David’s Tea must employ some cute little elves to make candy canes that are so delicate. The tea itself is a little bitter at first, but after adding some sweetener and a little milk the flavor becomes creamy and delicious. The black tea base is stronger than I expected it would be, and it adds a nice, malty undertone beneath all of the sweeter flavors. I will have to remember this tea for next year, this is one that I could drink every day during the holiday season to get in the Christmas spirit!

-Dry leaves have pieces of peppermint leaves and tiny candy canes. Wet leaves reveal partially dissolved candy canes.
-Dry leaves smell minty and sweet. Tea liquor aroma is minty with a hint of orange.
-Tea liquor is a light brown color.
-Slightly malty flavor with mint and a cinnamon-orange finish.
-Best with sweetener, milk optional.
-Very good tea. Perfectly sweet without being too minty. Adding milk makes a creamy cup.

First post on Steepster, so I’m going to keep this somewhat brief. I received this tea in a Christmas sampler pack and in my opinion, it’s one of the better ones included in the mix. I drank this with a little bit of agave syrup, which was good, but I think it would be totally fine without sweetener too. Nice minty flavour, and not overpowering.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a note, and to be honest I haven’t been drinking too much tea. I’ve been trying to increase my pure water intake rather than tea haha with my efforts to get more active (aka running 1-2 times a week outside, swimming at least twice a week). But it was so cold in the office today that I had to make a cup of this to sip while wearing my coat with the heater cranked. I’m pretty sure it’s warmer outside than in here lol.

This tea – nothing new about it, I’ve logged it countless times. Fruity, un-caffeinated, smooth and easy drinking. I am losing my infatuation with it, so decreasing my rating accordingly. But it helped warm me up! See previous notes on this tea.

I will try to log notes more frequently on here, I lurk and read lots still! :D

Edit – Happy note 1100 to me! I was going to try to hit that on my birthday, but I drank scotch that night instead of tea :P haha

Evol Ving Ness

Happy birthday to you!

A sipdown this morning on this one! And a better day today than yesterday’s craziness, still was a busy morning but the thing I was working on is finally out and hopefully all corrected, the sun is shining, my new tea mug was delivered apparently (!!! my first etsy mug, SO EXCITED) and I am going to go for another run tonight and feel excellent. And yes drink more tea haha. Life is good. And it’s almost the weekend! 9.5 more hours of work before I’m off tomorrow :) anyways back to work now haha see previous notes on this tea! It will probably be a restock at some point again.

I’m not sure if this tea will ever get old for me lol. It’s just a comforting, usual cup of tasty goodness. Not overly special, nothing that blows me away, but it’s reliable and always there, and a great caffeine free tea for morning or night. Quite enjoyable, I think I will always have a bit of this in my cupboard.

In unrelated news, ugh, I don’t have internet at home until Friday, that’s when they are coming to hook it up. And my poor phone is already over the max for data this month…some friends are unfortunately going through a bad breakup (long term couple ) so phone data got maxxed talking to them online, hopefully they work it out. So yeah, no logging of tea notes from home this week lol. Anyways, see previous notes on this tea.

Ugh, I did something to mess up this tea this morning. Maybe overleafed, as I used my DavidsTea spoon rather than a regular teaspoon..my travel mug might also be contaminated from other teas and not soaking it long enough to get the tastes out. Whatever it is, I’m not a fan this morning lol. Blargh. See previous notes for a better review haha.

Courtney

Do you have a Timolino? How do you soak it? No matter what I seem to do my plastic cover pieces still taste slightly of soap :/

MissLena

Yes mine is a timolino :( yeah I usually just fill it up with soap and water and leave the plastic top pieces soak in the top of it, but it never gets the scent of the tea out..I think it was the White Chocolate Frost I had last week that won’t come out, that creamy mint..ick. I switched to my older Timolino for this afternoon, hopefully it’s better! I’ve heard those denture tablets are good to clean it with, but I’ve never tried them, if I deep clean it I just use baking soda first then a bit of vinegar. It seems to help, I should do that tonight lol.

Haha how ironic – the first note that shows up for me of this tea was on my first day of work, and I was just discussing my first day with the new guy! Weird haha. I needed a caffeine break today, my skin’s been acting weird, random hives on my elbow, so I am trying to figure out what’s triggering them. More likely than not, I rubbed it on some peanut butter in the kitchen at work and it’s reacting, but still so weird! Or I am still fighting off the flu…hopefully not :S and if it is caffeine, hopefully it will go away with a break for it for about 8 hours..because I will want some tonight for my second last class of that course :D anyways, this tea never fails me, see previous notes!

Tea of the morning at work, I am trying to cut back on my caffeine consumption a bit here, which is pretty tough since I’m out of all my caffeine-free chais :( I need to order more Chai Spice from Verdant and in the meantime pick up some Coco chai rooibos from davidstea! Anyways, so this tea is it’s usual goodness, peachy and refreshing. Not really the coziest tea, but it does remind me of breakfast, so I will pretend I am at home sleeping rather than at work lol. In my mind, that is.

Oh, and a coworker brought some of his matcha to work! I am excited to try it, I think the brand is Got Matcha, and he brought 4 different flavors! I didn’t bring my whisk though (lol I will feel like such a tea nerd if I do) so I am wondering how to make it hot! He said he just stirs it in…any suggestions?

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Invest in a protein shaker bottle. They’re the best for matcha on the go.

MissLena

If I get heavily into drinking matcha I probably will :) We just made it by mixing it in with a teaspoon today, and it actually tastes pretty good!

Ah yesss I have this tea back in stock finally! I should just get a tin of it lol, I already went through a 25g bag and a 50 g bag haha, but oh well I just got another 50g bag due to limited space. Still a definite favorite of mine. Although I probably should have mixed it with guayusa on this dreary Monday morning, I’m pretty tired at my desk. See previous notes on this tea!

SIPDOWN! 2 in under 12 hours! Haha, this one is another that will definitely be restocked, this sipdown was already a restock haha, it’s one that I really enjoy in the mornings. It’s also very good mixed with guayusa, although I just am having it straight today as my stomach is a bit blah from eating mexican food last night lol. A really tasty, lightly peachy cup, and I find that green rooibos has some staying power to it, it actually is a bit filling. I really enjoy green rooibos blends actually haha. Anyways, see previous notes on this tea!

TheTeaFairy

Somehow, mexican food and blah always go well together the day after, lol! Hope the tea helped!

MissLena

Haha agreed! Yeah the tea helped tons :) i’m so happy I can always find a tea for stomach issues!

So its my first day of work at my first totally full time job! O.o I am hiding away at my cubicle on lunch break because I’m too shy to talk to Ppl still haha :( and I brought this tea with me to work in my timolino! Very tasty and refreshing this morning :) i’m unsure how I’m going to brew my tea at work, there a keurig that everyone uses, but I saw a kettle, so maybe I’ll use that? Or just bring travel mugs lol, i’ll figure it out when I’m not so nervous! See previous notes on this tea!

Mercuryhime

Oh yay! Congrats! I’d say use the kettle if you have a reliable water source. Or bring a water filter. Everything made with a Keurig tastes like stale coffee. And you’ll get to know your work mates eventually. Maybe make them some tea. :)

CHAroma

Congrats on the new job!!

MissLena

Thanks guys :) yeah I’ll probably check out the kettle this week, I also will probably get over my shyness in a week or 2 haha i usually get really chatty after a while lol
