Plus: it smells wonderful. Minus: it tastes absolutely nothing like what it smells like. So bitter. I’m glad I only had a small bag.

I will admit that I brewed this from one of those samples that David’s Tea throws you when you order online from them, so I wasn’t precise in measuring the tea, or the water, so much of the problem I have with this tea could be attributed to my own laziness. That said, this tea seems weak to me. It’s just not very robust, although it certainly smells deceptively so. The aroma is delightful, particularly if you like berries. I also love the smell of lavender, so my expectations for this tea were high by the time I took my first sip. And I was sadly disappointed. I just wanted something more from it than what I got. It smells better than it tastes.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA

David’s Tea has discontinued Kanpe, which makes me sad because unlike most people who have reviewed it here, I don’t find it too tart or spicy. It was one of my favourite teas and while I still have some, I do not look forward to the day when I run out.

I’m pleasantly surprised by this tea. Dry, the aroma is so strong that it can be overwhelming, but once it’s steeped, it mellows out and tastes almost rich, but not cloyingly so. I don’t really like chamomile tea, and got this as a gift, so I was reluctant to try it, but quite happy with how it turned out. I don’t know if it’ll become a favourite, but on the first try, it’s not bad at all.

Flavors: Lemon Zest, Licorice, Orange Zest

One of my favourite “summer” teas. This is light and fruity and refreshing.

drank Pure Chai (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA

There’s something missing in this tea and I can’t quite place it. Maybe there isn’t enough spice for my liking, or maybe I’ve had so many Chai Tea Lattes from Starbucks lately that my tastebuds are out of whack, but there you have it. This isn’t a bad tea, per se, it’s just not what I was looking for. I think I’ll try the Saigon Chai next time.
