Cold brewed this and let’s just say it was not a delight

drank Mango Diablo by DAVIDsTEA

I really like this one. Really, really like this one. Nom. The juicy sweetness of the mango with a kick of chili? Yes, please! I haven’t tried it iced yet, but I am very eager to. I think this might be worth a tin to me.

Hmm. I think I must try this today. From your description, I bet it would taste good cooked with chicken.

Jessie

Whew! I just returned to the office from DT and agonized over if I should try this one or not. I went with 10 g, and based on this I’m glad.

Kittenna

I really need to get to DT soon and pick up some of these new ones. Holding off until the summer collection appears though.

I hope the green tea base doesn’t make this one bitter. I looove chili teas but I did whenever there’s a green base (ahem, hot lips) the tea goes bitter before it has steeped long enough to feel the chili heat. You’ve made it sound delicious though, and now I must try!

This one has a good chili kick softrev, I think you’ll be happily surprised with the lack of bitterness of the base :)

softrevolution

Awesome, that’s good to know! I think I’ll try a cup iced later today :)

So good. Creamy and fruity and sweet and everything lovely in life. So. Good. If you have these two, do yourself a favor and try mixing them. You’ll thank me later ;)

Soon O_O.

So sad. I am a huge fan of Peewee’s Big Adventure, and I so desperately wanted to love this tea, but for me it was nothing but a Big…disappointment. I cold brewed this, I had it hot, I did everything I could to it, but it didn’t wow me. Cold brewed, this just tastes weak and bland…and since I used about twice the leaf I usually use for cold brewing, that just sucks. It’s alright enough, but it’s not one I feel the need to have more of. Oh well.

Jessie

Oh, yeah. I forgot I’d tried this one last week because I was that underwhelmed by it! So disappointing because a kiwi tea should be amazing.

It smells so good! So good! So saaaaaaaad

I tried some iced in-store today with only a little agave; I’m a huge huge kiwi fan and was SUPER excited, but it was such a disappointment. :(

drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I asked my wife to make me cup of this last night before bed and oh man, this tea. I could smell it throughout the whole house, it smelled so good! And so sweet! This is definitely the tea to reach for when I’m craving something sweet. Mmmm. It was a bit too sweet for me last night, I may need to try it without my usual addition of sugar.

Kittenna

Isn’t the smell intoxicating?! I figured I should keep some on hand just for the smell… all three of the cake teas smell delicious IMO.

Took some to work with me yesterday (iced), we were so busy I didn’t actually get to it until an hour before close. But what a lovely hour that was. This is such a beautifully tasty tea!

This was delicious! I think I might have to keep cinnamon in the house if only to stock up on this blend! It’s so, so good! It tastes like home and fall and yumminess. Next time I might throw a bit of french vanilla, round out the corners a bit, but this was wonderful.

Mixed these two together today…it tasted kinda like blue raspberry cotton candy! I greatly enjoyed it while at work, but I don’t think Raspberry is one I’ll be stocking up on.

Following Tina S’s advice, I cold steeped this last night and fell in love with it at work this morning. It was beautiful and not bitter at all and fruity and maple-y. It is utterly lovely. I don’t feel a need to run out and stock up this instant, but I will definitely grab some next time I’m in the area.

Tina S.

Hurray! Cold steep to the rescue!

I wish I knew what was in this, but it was good? I saw peppercorns and tasted cardamom…it was kind of like a vanilla chai? Whatever, it was tasty and it will be no hardship to finish the sample.

Jessie

Ooh, was this one of the ones in the cute little tins/containers?

aisling of tea

Yup! I’m kinda grateful that it’s good, but not so incredible that I feel the need to hunt down more of it XD.

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!
