drank Love Elixir for Her by DAVIDsTEA
442 tasting notes

Despite the licorice in this one, the smell of the chocolate lured me in to try a small sample. I was happy to see that it hit the wall so I didn’t have to buy the jar sets.

Dry, it smells a lot like chocolate with an undercurrent of spiced notes. Normally the licorice in the ingredients would send me running, but I tried it anyway. Brewed, the chocolate is the main flavour. In fact that was all I got in the first couple sips. Soon though the licorice notes peeked out and it became the prominent afternote.

Overall it wasn’t bad, and I can see why others would like it, but it wasn’t the tea for me. Not rating it because I don’t believe in marking things down for personal preferences and/or issues.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
