Long time, no log! I’ve been drinking lots of tea, but keep forgetting to review them. I’ll try to catch up a bit.
Recently I visited DavidsTea and got a bunch of small bags to try, and a couple days ago my Della Terra order showed up too!
Last night I decided to brew up this one before bed since it was caffeine free.
The dry leaf smells exactly like a lemon flavoured yogurt or something, that lemony creamy scent. Yum!
The rose bits in this cause it to turn a pretty pink colour.
The aroma was very nice on this, although after steeping a bit of that creaminess of the leaf had disappeared and I was getting more lemongrass.
The taste: The aroma of this tea is very strong and lovely. The thing is you expect it to taste as good as it smells, and sadly it doesn’t. It tastes good and lemony and creamy, but not nearly as strong as it smells. I did notice the flavour came out slightly more as it cooled.
Overall, it’s good and I’m glad I get to try an ounce of it, but next time I’ll try something else rather than repurchasing.

Bio

Recently graduated sociology student trying to decide what to do with her life.
I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
