Usually I taste strawberry when I drink this tea. Today I am getting a fair bit of mint and I am okay with that. Also this is the one time that Teavana’s lack of actual tea leaves has served me well.

This one smells so sweet but of course sneaky hibiscus insists on competing with the peach and apple flavors. It is not bad but I really wish the hibiscus was not present. I am trying it cold brewed but if the hibiscus is still too prominent I will pass this on to my friend as well.

drank Lavender Dreams by Teavana

This just tastes like lavender to me. The white tea doesn’t do much and it always confuses me as to how a tea called “Lavender Dreams” is not caffeine-free. The rest of this is being passed on to a friend.

Flavors: Flowers

I’ve always wanted to try this! Is the lime overwhelming?

Resteeped the leaves from last night and though the vanilla creaminess is gone and the root beer is muted, it is still root beer and tasty.

Sipdown!!

Thank you both Dexter3657 and Scheherazade for sharing this tea. It is sweet and fruity but not exactly what I would call Carrot Cake. I am glad I got a chance to try it but I don’t think I will miss it now that it is gone.

drank Strawberry Pie Honeybush by 52teas
2582 tasting notes

MMMMMmmm… now this is how I remember this tasty tea. Strong strawberry flavor with yummy notes of cinnamon. Apparently dropping the temperature and leaving the tea to steep forever is the key to making this delicious.

Also, I am loving the DAVIDs filter bags. I only bought 20 and I am quickly going through them which is very quickly turning into a reason to either go to DAVIDs or place an order. If I do that though, something tells me the mason jar or a perfect mug might make it into my cart. Must resist the urge to spend money!

Flavors: Berries, Cinnamon

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.
