Goodbye vanilla pudding tea. My time with you has run its course and your age is starting to show. This is the right time to let go :P

drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA

Nope. noppity nope, nope. This is not for me. Cloying licorice root and spiced carrot. I wanted to like this but it is just not for me.

Fjellrev

Does the carrot actually taste like good carrot or does it have that cellar note?

Colleen

Licorice root? Nooooooooooooooo!!!!! I was so looking forward to this tea but I hate licorice.

Kristal

Ok maybe I won’t buy this one then :| Thanks for the heads up!

VariaTEA

Fjellrev, it actually tasted like carrot which was the one nice part of this but it didn’t help at all in light of all the other badness in here.

Fjellrev

That is so unfortunate.

Kristal

I actually did decide to purchase this tea and I really liked it! Review will be up in just a min. Different strokes for different folks I suppose ;)

drank Strawberry Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

Do you know strawberry milk? The super sweet stuff you buy in bottles (usually when you’re a kid)? Well, that’s what this tastes like. Strawberry milk but for adults because of caffeine.

It would be interesting to try some other flavors of matcha that DAVIDs has to offer since it’s certainly easier than Red Leaf Tea to get ahold of. Maybe I will hit up a store while I still have my 20% off discount (or is it 30% now?).

drank Sweet Tea by Southern Breeze
2806 tasting notes

I had no idea what I was in for when I tried this but what I got was essentially caramel syrup with splenda’s aftertaste. Blech! This was cloying and over-the-top and the pitcher got dumped. I am sure watering it down might have helped tone down the sweetness but alas the Splenda would remain and the aftertaste is not something I can easily get past.

You are such a trooper! Now we don’t have to suffer the same fate. Thank you!

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA
2806 tasting notes

I’m not a lover of this one. It does remind me of pink lemonade but I was more tartness and I’m just not getting that here. What am I getting? Stevia. Is that in here? Because I am tasting it and it’s just not awesome.

Made this in my smoothie today and despite the chocolate pudding and the peanut butter and the banana, the main flavor here was the vanilla from this tea. Sweet, creamy vanilla. It was GOOD!

Note for later:
4 pftsp/4 oz 3 mins
chocolate pudding
banana
1 cup milk
PB
4 cups of ice

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
