I am so used to eating the plump berries out of my Blueberry jam tea post-steep, that I popped one of these berries in my mouth!

It was a juniper berry.

So I quickly drank the tea to get the piney-tasting bits out of my mouth. Beware the juniper berry!

Other than that – it’s a berry tea! Not my favourite but makes a nice summer iced tea, or creamy berry latte.

Bonnie

Oh no Mr. Bill!

Kittenna

HAHAHAHAHA!!! Thanks for the heads-up! I don’t think I went after the berries in this one for whatever reason.

Dylan Oxford

Hahaha, that’s pretty funny right there :)

DaisyChubb

haha I laughed at myself as soon as I picked the grossness out of my teeth :D

In my opinion it tastes way more berry than piney – I think the juniper berries just have a strong scent! :3

Backlogging from Wednesday

I made this the suggested DT’s iced method.

As much as I really enjoy berry teas, this one seemed a little bit off to me. I think the acai berry powder maybe gave it a funny taste, kinda like I could taste the powder…..or maybe it was in my head….I don’t know, I am probably just crazy!

Anyway, there was something about this tea that was a bit off for me. I did like the juniper berry taste though.

Preparation
Iced

(Crazy) we were going to send you a note but since you brought it up …..well….there is a tea remedy for it I’m sure.

Kittenna

It does taste like a “healthy” berry juice to me. So not my fave, especially since Blueberry Jam exists!

tigress_al

Lol must remedy that craziness with more tea…..mwahhhahaha…going to solve that right now Bonnie!
I agree Kittenna, blueberry jam is way better. I really like that one!

drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

Oops, bought this because I didn’t think I had tried it before and I rather enjoy whites. Turns out I had tried it. Brewed it hot today, not a fan of the hot brew, too much hibiscus. I guess I will save it for summer to have iced or cold brew

Aimee Popovacki

its pretty nice cold.. i have a bag of it still .. its hard to stomach hot.. just something off about the taste.

drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA

I cold brewed this for 5-6 hours. I thought this was really good, maybe a little bit tart, but that was ok.

Nice and light strawberry taste with a delicate white background. The strawberry was maybe a little too light. I can see how this might become overly tart from the hibiscus if not brewed properly.

Not sure if I would buy this again, just because I have so many other whites that I enjoy so much better.

Bonnie

So….a triple header!

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA
255 tasting notes

I had this lovely tea on the ferry to the mainland. My feet will touch real mainland shortly!
I was very happy with this tea as I could steep it for a long time (aka forget about it for 10 min) without it going bitter. It was deliciously malty and sweet with a creamy edge on the third steep. I really enjoyed this as an easy black tea for on the go. I don’t have to worry about it… Put the water in and forget without consequence. So glad I picked this tea up

ScottTeaMan

How was your trip?? Hope you had a great time. :))

Lynne-tea

My trip was fantastic thank you! I have been running around busy busy with event planning and bbq’s.. oh my! Today I will actually be able to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea. I haven’t done that in a while!

ScottTeaMan

Me either. I have my nephew here and he’s visiting cousins, so I’l have more time for tea :D, & less time with him :[.

Lynne-tea

Awww! The tea trade-off. I know it well. If only the whole world was accustomed to having a tea session at least once in the day. That way it would be the best of both worlds as you could then easily share it with your nephew.

ScottTeaMan

I do occasionally. He likes Red Rose, & I’m going to review a tea he liked later, but he is no where near the tea drinker I am. He’s only in town another week so my tea reviews will not be as important right now.

Lynne-tea

Haha I would say so! I hope you have a lot of fun with him while he is there with you =) I will keep an eye out for the tea you are going to review that he liked.

Fjellrev

Haha I’m so late on the reading and commenting. I just took the ferry to the mainland myself, but alas, I had no DT to sip on. Good to hear that your trip was fantastic.

I was going to pick this one up last time I was in the store but didn’t. Sounds mighty good! I shall do it next time. :)

Lynne-tea

Haha it’s okay. Summer can be so busy for everyone – but students especially (maybe it’s just me.. but that’s my only ‘downtime’).
Nepal black is quite delicious. Definitely a black I will want to keep on hand for school as it tastes amazing no matter what (it’s yet to go bitter on me… Terrah!) I hope your trip to the mainland was absolutely fantastic!

drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA

Tried this one last weekend. As wonderful as it smelled in the bag, it just didn’t live up to my expectations in the cup. Ended up bland and not nearly as full of cinnamon flavor as I’d hoped. Too bad.

Amazing. The smell blew me away in the store, and I bought my first full tin right then and there. I tried it earlier today and have already enjoyed four cups of the stuff. The smell is intoxicating, and the taste lives up to the smell. It’s like drinking a jasmine flower, which is very much up my alley.

Spicy. Warm. Snuggly. If you’re a fan of cinnamon, this is the chai for you.

Delicious. Spicy but somehow also has a hint of something fruity. I love that this has cardamom in it unlike the pure chai, which seems to only have cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. This is well-rounded, exotic, and comforting.

Drinking this right now. I’ve been having fun with the Chocolate Frost and playing with temps, and timings. I find a shorter timing (4min) on the Chocolate Frost makes it a bit creamier. Still having fun with it though. I also got my Verdant Tea order including my tea of the month club one so there’s some new ones there. Although I think my Yu Lu Yan Chai might be just a black in the one package as I didn’t see any berries or such… oh well I’ll add my own cinnamon and stuff as it is still a good tea. Or maybe the goodies are just all at the bottom of the bag and I somehow missed them.

having this with marshmallows right now YUM!

Preparation

Nik

Okay so I totally bought marshmallows with the intention of dropping one in a few of my blends as a sweetener. And I totally ate all the marshmallows before trying them in a single tea! Gotta buy more marshmallows! :D

Helena

I have a habit of doing that sometimes :D the whole reason I started buying marshmallows was because Stacy (Butiki Teas) said she bought a bag of marshmallows and ate them all before blending tea. Since then I’ve had a marshmallow craving that is not going away :D It’s all Stacy’s fault :D

Nik

Me too!! It’s totally her fault. =P

it’s stopped sprinkling outside for now but it’s still very cloudy… those clouds are not very friendly looking. So I’ll brew some more tea! and thanks to The Purrfect Cup for the idea about combining goodreads.com with steepster.com as it lead to me creating the Discussion goodreads.com for us to post on :D
