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.

Rebreaking in my Camelbak waterbottle with this tea and a new resolve to rinse it as soon as it’s empty. Also, I wanted to drink up the last of it so there will be room for new cold brewed tea in the fridge! Still good, still juicy, still not going to restock.

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!
