drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

My mom has some of this, so I thought I would give it a try as she and my sister rave about it. (I can’t remember if I tried it last year or not.) I made it and then put it in my thermos to have later at work. Maybe it was the fact that it wasn’t fresh (the tea didn’t sit in it, but it was ~3 hours old) or maybe it is my thermos, but it kind of tasted like cherry cough syrup. Anyone else had this experience?

I grabbed a small amount of this the other night, just to try it. Just opening the bag made me say, “Nuh uh.” I sealed it shut and put it in my swap box for someone that I know loves it.

I don’t mind the first 2 or 3 sips when it’s freshly made, but after that? No dice. I’m with you!

Now that I have some more time, it’s back to Steepster I go!

This is tied for my number one tea, and I just went to David’s to buy myself another 250g, as I was on my last 50g bag. My throat is a little sore today, and once again, the peppermint is helping! I think I might cut down to half a sugar, though.

What’s it tied with?

I usually greatly dislike anything with coconut in it, but I actually couldn’t taste it. The balance between the cinnamon and the chocolate was perfect. Given the caffeine though, I don’t know if I would drink this at night haha!

Honestly, this tea doesn’t jump out at me as anything spectacular. It might be because I usually drink more of the flavoured teas, but this even seems to fall short of Twinnings breakfast tea. Maybe I’ll try a shorter steep next time.

My sister had this and was nice enough to let me try it. I’m not a huge fan of pineapple or coconut, I didn’t get more than 5 sips into this I’m afraid.

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

My mom was VERY nice to me, and mailed this (and a few other teas) to me in Dublin. I’m still on the fence with rooibos tea in general, but I REALLY enjoyed this tea. I found it the perfect amount of sweetness with nothing added (coming from a girl who always puts a dash of sugar in her tea). I made it cold, I would be hesitant to have it hot, though; don’t know if I would enjoy it as much.

I’m on the fence with rooibos also, but every time I get close to writing it off, I find one that I don’t mind. I’m glad you enjoyed this one

My best friend/roommate here has this tea, and is gracious enough to let me have some whenever I feel like it (lucky, lucky me!!). This is lovely, sweeter tea that I generally have for dessert. Very relaxing blend (the Adagio Cream is one of my go-to teas), the cream balances out the chai nicely. I usually have with one sugar and two milk.

drank Cream by Adagio Teas

I figured I would give this tea a shot despite all of the low ratings because I generally prefer cream teas, and I’m quite glad I did! It is a very mellow tea, but pairs well with most food (which I find uncommon). I would still place it slightly below the David’s Cream of Earl Grey (favourite tea of all time), but this is still an excellent tea. I will take it either with one sugar and one milk, or just one milk. Not sure if I would enjoy it black, though.

This is a nice Early Grey. Nothing too spectacular about it, but also nothing particularly bad either.

I’m back in Winnipeg now, so regular access to all my teas! (Though I do miss Ireland quite a lot.)

I mostly drink black teas (anything with cinnamon is fantastic), with a few white teas as well.
