I made this tea at home this time instead of trying it in the store and now I love it! Unfortunately I discovered this after I got back from the store in NYC. I guess it just wasn’t made sweet or strong enough in the store, butI think this might be an online order along with Cool Cucumber once I pay taxes (ick!)

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I love this tea! I’m a huge lover of ginger. This has some spice to it from all the pepper but it’s so smooth and the ginger is so strong. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves ginger.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I bought 6oz of this tea strictly to make it iced. The weather is turning to spring and I wanted plenty of good iced teas to choose from and I don’t drink soda. This has a strong citrus smell when it was dry but when it was brewed it was more eucalyptus than I expected, which was nice because it was nice and cool and refreshing.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is certainly an acquired taste. I got this as a sample in my Moms DavidsTea box. She doesn’t like the way it smells so she gave it to me to try. I really liked it at first but the more I drank it the less minty it was and the more it tasted like just plain cucumber water. Granted it was only a sample size so if I were to buy it I would make it stronger.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

I actually got the second steep on this tea, my roommate made the first, I have had this on the first steep before though so I shall compare the two.
Steep 1: Lots of strawberry, mildly earthy nothing overpowering in the pu’erh. I really am a huge fan of strawberry so I loved it.
Steep 2: Almost no strawberry present. It has a strong earth taste, though it’s not bad I was just disappointed that my roommate got all the strawberry taste out of it. It almost has an astringent taste.
I recommend only steeping this once.

Finally got up the courage to make this tea again… still not entirely thrilled with it but I didn’t brew it too strong this time so it’s at least tolerable. I won’t be buying this tea again.

This tea was okay, I will be able to more accurately comment on this tea when I haven’t put Nutella in it. I thought it was a really good idea, but not so much… oops!

Hi, welcome to my profile. I’m a college sophomore studying youth ministry. I’m in love with tea! I love enjoying a good cup pretty much anytime, and I’m usually brewing some for a friend too. Every time I say I’m making some, the girls I live with want it too. I’m just beginning to expand my loose leaf horizons, and I love it. Bring on the tea!
