Cold steeped this and got nothing but bitter blegh. Definitely not restocking.

I had this iced yesterday as we were picking up our 20g of each of the new teas. It was…different. I dunno, it tasted off to me, too tart kind of? I don’t know how to describe it, but at the end of the cup my wife and I agreed that Blueberry Jam was infinitely better.

Love, love, love this one. I’ve had it cold steeping for a few days and I had forgotten how good is it cold. It’s minty and fruity and utterly delicious. It’s still that blue raspberry slushie flavour without all of the sugar and badness.

oooh blue raspberry slushie o_o I’m intrigued ;)

It is delicious, I’d be happy to send some your way!

How have we never had a swap before?! That is craziness – we should rectify the situation soon I think :D Pop me a PM when you have time for a little swap perhaps?

Absolutely!

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
1236 tasting notes

After being told I couldn’t use the kid’s tumbler (which I freaking LOVE) for the iced tea promo (boo!) I decided that since I had to pay full price for a cup anyway, I may as well try one of the new teas. This was…all right. I had it iced, since that’s what I’m in the mood for and I’m not so sure about hot teas in the kid’s tumbler. It was over steeped and bitter (due to the gentleman making the tea losing the timer and then setting it for a regular steep time when he found it a full minute later while my tea was already steeping), but what I could taste around the bitterness was good. I have some at home, so I’m going to try it with my own steeping preferences before I rate. But what I got was a creamy smooth caramel, so yay! Hopefully it’s not just a bitter tea.

Double boo!! Sorry the tea guy didn’t brew your tea correctly. That blows.

Meh, he almost always screws it up somehow, I’ve learned I’ve got to watch him or else he’ll forget something or mess something up. I saw everything happen with the timer, but he was too busy flirting to listen when I tried to catch his attention. Oh well. I just hesitate to say anything because everyone else who works there is awesome.

I didn’t find this bitter!

I was so excited to see this on the tea of the day list. It’s one I love, but can’t justify the cost of, so I save it for buying tea by the cup. When it’s part of the iced tea of the day promo, even better. I had three tumblers-full by the end of my workday and it was glorious. I had forgotten how good this is.

Cold brewed this, but it turned out bitter. Sadness. Hot, this one is amazing, so I think I’ll save the rest of my stash for winter.

DaisyChubb

This does sound like a perfectly cozy winter tea

drank Pom Power by DAVIDsTEA

Buying the iced tea tumbler was the smartest thing I ever did! This was the tea of the day along with Bear Trap the other day, and while I went in intending to load up on Bear Trap (which, with a little bit of agave, tastes just like candy), I took a sip of this and had to try it. I am so glad I did. Hot, I found the hibiscus was too much for me, but iced….it was glorious. And while I prefer to cold steep here at him, I can totally see the merits of making the tea double strong and then icing it. The hibsicus doesn’t have nearly as much time to contemplate world (and tea) domination. This is one I can definitely see myself returning to.

Hibsicus world and tea domination! Make me giggle so badly.

I went through all of my matchas with my sister in law yesterday and gave her samples of quite a few. I also made us both a caramel apple matcha using this and Red Leaf Tea’s green apple matcha. She had hers hot while I had mine cold with vanilla soy milk….yum. Matcha lattes are amazing, I’m going to have to experiment more. I just placed an order for several of their new matchas, so keep an eye out for more reviews!

I am in love with this tea, I want to drink it all the time. I have yet to try it hot, but I’ve had it iced several times, both in store and at home. It’s just plain amazing. Juicy, juicy blueberries and a touch of tea…perfect. Definitely need a tin.

This was one of the iced TOTD’s yesterday, so I decided to give it another go. Nope, still not for me. I get a hint of watermelon flavor, but mostly it’s a too-tart apple.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
