drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

I picked this up on sale (four 25g packs for $10!) on a whim and oh my gosh it is delicious. I’m actually kind of sad I like this tea so much because I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to get more of it. I tried it hot and thought the honeydew was the most prominent flavor, although I definitely got cucumber notes in my cup which were very refreshing. I’m debating whether or not to cold steep the rest in my big iced tea pitcher but I don’t want to run out of this tea :(

drank Pina Colada by Fava Tea Co.
6 tasting notes

This is SO GOOD. I wandered into Fava Tea Co. a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed. They have a huge variety of flavors with little samples of each tea available to smell. The smell is incredible, almost exactly like a pina colada, and it tastes even better.

I cold brewed this tea overnight in my DavidsTea mason jar mug to take to work with me this morning. It tastes exactly like pineapple coconut juice… without all the added sugar. I have a feeling that come summer I will be drinking this non stop. Mmmmmm.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 6 tsp 24 OZ / 709 ML

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

Sip down! I got this tea back in May and, although I really enjoyed it at first, my palate has changed a bit to prefer spicier teas rather than sweet. That being said, I looked in my tea stash at work today and saw I had enough left for one more cup so I thought I’d finish it off. This tea is definitely very sweet and I kind of feel like I’m drinking a liquefied caramel. It’s not my favorite tea, and I probably won’t be purchasing it again, but I’m glad I tried it!

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is one of my staples but I haven’t reviewed it yet! This was the first tea I tried from DavidsTea and I fell in love at first sip. I can really taste the vanilla and sweetness from the orange peel. I have this tea almost every morning and I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it. Mmmmm.

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

Sipdown! I got this tea because I was told it was similar to DavidsTea’s “Cookie Dough,” which was discontinued but I loved oh so much. I was a bit skeptical because I really don’t gravitate towards green tea. Overall, I liked it enough. I can really taste the walnut and a bit of pineapple, but it isn’t in the same league as my beloved cookie dough (Sigh).

I probably won’t buy this again, but I don’t regret trying it out.

drank Orange Blossom by Rishi Tea
6 tasting notes

I’m normally not a huge fan of green tea, but this is one of the few teas we have at work so I thought I’d give it a try this morning. To my surprise, it’s pretty good. I only steeped the tea for about 2 minutes and I found that was the perfect amount. It’s slightly sweet and orangy (I know that’s not a word but bear with me) with a floral aftertaste and no bitterness! This isn’t my favorite tea but it’s the best available at my work!

Flavors: Flowers, Orange Zest

175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
