drank PassionFruit by Tea Desire

I’m not quite sure what to make of this tisane, yet. I was hoping that this could replace David’s Pink Passionfruit, which I miss, but it’s very different. Even in the large canister it lends a peach undertone more than anything else. Flavour-wise, it’s mega peachy, and very much on the artificial side. No passionfruit flavour, which I’m guessing would have been in the “flavouring” along with the peach, seeing that this tisane comprise dried melon and papaya. I can a taste a little bit of the starchy papaya in the background but it’s ultimately a peach tea. Artificial yet on the old side, as if the peaches are past their prime. It’s odd.

If it doesn’t have to be a tisane but you want a passionfruit tea, try Ma Passion from Nina’s. It’s really great.

drank Sweet Coco Dream by Tea Desire

A coconut blend with pumpkin and carrot? Hmm, I don’t know about that, especially as a cold brew, but I grabbed some anyway because the scent of the dry leaf in the huge canister reminded me a lot of Hawaii Flower from Janet’s Special Teas, which I kind of miss having around.

I luckily don’t get any of the vegetables when it comes to taste. It’s mostly pineapple with a touch of coconut, and not obnoxiously sweet either. It’s refreshing but not amazing, and I think I may even prefer David’s current summer offering, Coconut Ice.

Lastly, I think I need a bigger jug. Now with my mom getting into teas (yay!), the 1 litre waiting for us in the morning doesn’t last very long, and it’s getting rather difficult getting through these 25° C+ days with just two cups of cold brew!

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brewed this, unsurprisingly, since I do that with almost all herbals these days. It’s almost straight up coconut this way and I didn’t detect any honeybush whatsoever. I actually forgot it even had honeybush in it until I got to this page. I barely tasted the cocoa in it, either, but I suspect that it would come out more if one were to steep this hot. Overall, it makes a light, creamy coconut cold brew, so naturally, I’m happy with that. I could see myself picking up 50g more of this sometime but I’m not in love with it or anything.

Always good to have a nice, easy coconut blend on hand in the summer!

Bittersweet sipdown. I’m going to miss this because it was ultra creamy, truly like a root beer float, especially when you add milk/cream, but my pouch was getting a little old and losing flavour, so it was best to finish it off. Will not hoard, will not hoard, will not hoard…

drank Hard Candy by DAVIDsTEA

I actually quite like this one. Smells and tastes like cherry Jolly Ranchers. My mom’s a fan too, so seeing that I missed out on picking up more Melon Drop (classic me always doing that), I’d maybe get more of this instead.

I sipped this down and am so glad to have it out of the way. No more Verdant in my cupboard! I feel like I’m on another chapter in my tea book. Companies that once ruled my cupboard (52teas, Verdant, S&V, Della Terra) are pretty much gone, and I’m moving onto other things.

I’ve still got a pretty good supply of this one :)

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

Piña colada with strawberries and hibiscus thrown into the mix. I can easily taste all of that with every sip. It’s a great idea, and while it works, I’m finding this a little too sweet for my liking. Maybe tone down the sugar-coated pineapple a bit and I’d be happier.

I see some Steepsterites mentioning that this is heavy on the hibiscus. Maybe it’s the mix of dry leaf I got, but I’m actually kind of wishing there was a little more tart hibiscus in mine to cut the sweetness. Never thought I’d say I wanted more hibiscus in something.

drank Chestnut Green Tea by Lupicia

Yeeeeah, I’m still getting salmon teriyaki from this. Made sure to brew it at a lower temperature, didn’t over- or underleaf, and I splurged and made sure I got more nuts in the mix. My mom insists that I just throw out the rest, and that says a lot because she’s the type who will use something up despite how gross, stale, or old it is just because she doesn’t want to waste money.

drank Underground Pumpkin by Tippy's Tea

Cool cool, second sipdown of the day. Drinking this felt a little forced, I’ll admit, as the base is not my thing. Just a little too earthy for my liking.

Sipdown! I wouldn’t buy more but it’s still good, nonetheless. Seriously like hot chocolate when you add some light cream.
