drank Winter Chai by Tea Forte
1116 tasting notes

I’m not a huge chai drinker, but out of the ones I’ve tried, this very well might be my favorite. Most of the spiciness comes from cinnamon and ginger, making it quite mild for a chai, but there’s an ample amount of each spice so that they really shine. The rooibos base is your average rooibos and definitely fades into the background to let the spices take over.

Lovely plain, even lovelier with a splash of milk and a dash of sweetener !

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA
1116 tasting notes

I don’t typically cold steep black teas, but I got this in a sampler of teas to ice so I figured I’d give it a try. Turns out that this cold steeps really well! It’s at least half dried fruit, so that’s probably why! It’s very fruity and crisp, with some natural sweetness but benefits from some added sweetener.

Flavors: Fruity

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Peachberry Jasmine Sutra by Teavana

I got more of this tea for the first time in a while and I’m not sure if my tastes have changed, the blend has changed, or I just got a different ratio of ingredients in this two ounces, but it tastes nothing like I remember. Just a fruit punch kind of a tea this time!

drank Green Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA

I got this as part of a set of teas recommended for drinking iced, and it turns out that I like it the best cold steeped. That’s what brings out the best balance between the green tea base and the sweet dried fruit pieces; otherwise it’s more of a lackluster green with too-subtle fruit additions. Very refreshing and with a nice natural sweetness when cold steeped!

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA

I love the scent of the dry leaf for this one, but to me it’s a distinctly artificial apple; definitely brings to mind a candy rather than an orchard.

Brewed, I’m getting more of a conventional fruit smell, and the taste is mainly fruit as well, with only a bit of a “candy” edge. I notice the apple and pear in equal measures. Very sweet without any additions, and there’s so much fruit and added flavor that I don’t notice the green tea at all. If this is your thing, it’s delicious!

Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Pear

I’m not a big fan of cranberries so this isn’t something I’d typically go out and buy, but as this is part of the fall collection and I do love trying seasonal drinks, I decided to give it a shot when it was offered as a sample choice with my most recent Davidstea order.

I share the apparently common observation that this is surprisingly tart: as expected of the ingredients, but perhaps not so typical of a muffin. But after I’ve gotten over that, this tisane doesn’t pack much of a punch. The primary note I notice, when tasting an especially when smelling is actually the dandelion root, which I personally dislike. The fruit notes are mostly lost other than the general tartness, although I occasionally get some of the orange peel. I only get the smallest hint of muffins, and even then it’s only when I’m looking for it.

Too much dandelion, not enough cranberry orange muffin. Not recommended.

Flavors: Dandelion, Tart

Preparation
1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
1116 tasting notes

Not gonna lie, I love these gimmicky dessert teas. Lime gelato as a tea is such a silly idea, and it’s obviously nothing like actually eating gelato, but I’m into it.

There’s definitely lime flavor here, more on the artificial side, and while it’s not an official note I actually notice a bit of cherry here as well. I don’t taste any of the green tea base whatsoever, and I wouldn’t have been able to pick out the lemongrass or pineapple if I didn’t know about them. There is a slight cream flavor, which is where the gelato part comes in, but it’s subtle.

Like any tea of this nature, light sugar or sweetener really brings out the flavors in this blend. It’s a really nice treat!

Flavors: Cherry, Cream, Lime

Preparation
2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
