drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I was a bit disappointed in this blend. I think I was expecting more of the peach, and less of the cream and vanilla note. I also get a lingering aftertaste that I’m not super crazy about.

drank Blue Lagoon by DAVIDsTEA

This one is alright. I got a sample in my last order. I got a kind of weird taste, possibly from the blueberries in this one. Overall it was not unpleasant, but not one I’d pay money for.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA

This almost reminds me of a yellow curry dish that I buy sometimes. There’s no curry, but a lot of the other ingredients in that dish are in here (ginger, lemongrass, coconut). I don’t know if I will reorder this one, but I will certainly be finishing the bag in some capacity. I can imagine this would be delicious iced.

drank Aloha Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

This does not taste like a pu’erh, and for me that’s not a bad thing. I like the bg fruit pieces and the softness of the white chocolate. This would probably make a great base for a tropical smoothie. I may or may not reorder this, but I’m certainly not disappointed.

I thought, based on its description, that I would not like this blend. That all changed when I smelled it and tasted it for the first time. It smells like a red starburst candy, and the taste is mostly fruity with a touch of amaretto.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This reminds me of a stronger Super Chocolate… I like it, but I probably won’t reorder it.

This one is hands-down my favorite tea from the spring collection. I have been having at least one cup of this a day (either straight up or blended with some other fruity tea). I hope this one stays permanently.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Amandine Rose by Teavana

I always thought that I’d never like this tea. I tried it once a while ago back when it was Almond Biscotti, and I did not like it. I liked it a lot this time around, but I may never drink this tea without milk/cream, since I believe that’s what was missing. The addition of candied violets gives the liquor a slight tinge of purple (not so much so as Lavender Dreams). I got nice hints of rose, and, of course, almonds.

I’m in the same boat about thinking I wouldn’t like it. Now I’m kicking myself because I didn’t buy more during the sale.

I had been hesitant to try this one for a while, and I’m glad I finally tried it! This is one of the best white teas I’ve purchased from DT.

I don’t taste a whole lot of banana here, but it’s still a great tea.
