drank Lemon Honey Bush by Steeped Tea

Considering how much I love and now miss Honeybush Lemon Ginger from DAVID’s tea, I was quite excited when I found this tea. Unfortunately, there’s just something missing in this tea-it’s too plain. It kind of tastes like a very plain rooibos tea with a hint of citrus. I think if they would have put lemongrass and ginger in this tea it would have been perfect. Unfortunately they didn’t though, so I will just use up my tin and try something else.

Flavors: Citrus

I love the spices in this tea! It’s an excellent combination and I can see it’ll really help when I get sick. Definitely going to keep a stock of this around!

Mmm..this is just like Bravissimo from David’s tea (except a little simpler). I really like it and I’m sure it’ll be great for an upset stomach!

My first time trying international house of tea! A got a small amount from my husband’s cousin who is no longer drinking teas with caffeine. This tea is really nice and smooth and “pure tasting”. I have to watch it with oolong teas due to my sensitive stomach so I probably will just use this tea up and not repurchase, but I definitely recommend it for those who like oolongs!

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
126 tasting notes

I’ve been trying to decrease my tea collection, but December being my birthday month and with Christmas, I knew I was going to get tea as gifts ;).

I brewed this for a solid 10 minutes on my break at work. When I went to drink it, it tasted under-leafed and I know that wasn’t the case. My cup is slightly larger than normal but I know I used enough. To me it just tastes like watered-down Forever Nuts. You can taste a bit of apple but like other posters have said it is a little artificial. As for the custard part, that’s purely in the smell of the tea and not in the taste.

My verdict is that Forever Nuts is a better choice. I’ll use this tea up but I will not repurchase (especially because I’m getting out of fruit teas).

Flavors: Apple

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I tried this one at my husband’s cousin’s place. I’ve been wanting to try this tea for quite some time and alas I finally did! I like it a lot-it has a natural sweet flavour that’s not too overpowering. It’s quite yummy and natural.

What can I say- I’m not a hibiscus fan; it’s just too tart. I think that it’s awesome that all the profits are going to such a great initiative, but if I don’t like the tea I don’t like the tea :(. This tea isn’t TOO unbearable if I under-leaf it and make it iced, but otherwise I won’t be buying this again.

Flavors: Berries, Hibiscus

Preparation
Iced 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Disappointing. This basically tastes like a watered down chai tea. In my opinion If I wanted a caffeine free chai tea I’d just have coco chai rooibos from DAVID’s.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Rooibos

Discovered I had a little sample of this in my cupboard. Its light and a little fruity. Don’t know if I’ll purchase it anytime soon though because I’m not drinking as many fruity teas.

Flavors: Fruity

Nice, not too expensive, and easy to clean. When I do herbal teas I like putting the loose tea directly in the water and using the metal infuser in my cup to strain the tea.

I used to be a coffee drinker, but it started to hurt my stomach so I switched to tea. A friend of mine introduced me to DAVID’s TEA and I couldn’t stop after that!

How I rate teas goes as following:

1-49: Teas I won’t buy again. Either the taste is disgusting to me, or it’s too bland, etc. I’m most likely not even going to finish the tin/bag.

50-59: Teas I wouldn’t buy; I have to force myself to drink the whole cup to not waste it.

60-69: I’ll finish the cup and even the bag/tin, but I wouldn’t buy these teas again. Teas of this rating are “lacking something”.

70-79:Teas that are pretty good and ones I might buy again. Usually these teas are ones I have to be “in the mood for” and drink occasionally.

80-89: Great teas! Ones I will drink several times a week and often have in my stash :).

90-100: Favourite must-have teas! I stock up on these teas all of the time and drink them constantly!

My favourite types of tea are green tea and different types of “natural” herbal tea (like lemongrass, ginger, mint, chamomile etc.)I like fruity teas but those are more of an occasional tea. Occasionally I like to make lattes with teas with candy bits in it (usually these are rooibos blends). On a day to day basis though I usually have 1-3 cups of green tea and several more cups of herbal tea :)

Flavours I don’t care for include hibiscus or anything too tart and overpowering amounts of cinnamon and lemon. Although I like black tea I can’t really drink any due to my sensitive stomach.
