This is a big ole cup of nutty chocolate deliciousness. So good! And combined with coconut almond milk? Amazing! Thank you Sil for sharing! It didn’t take much to convince me to place an order with the company.

Not too much tea drinking today as I slept in super late and then got called to cover someone else’s shift at work but at least there is some time for a couple cups before bed. Sipping on this now, it is pleasant enough but not really something I will miss when I pass the rest of the sample on to Cavocorax. The strawberry is subtle but adds a nice sweetness to the cup while the green tea in the base helps lighten up the black tea. Thank you Sil for the chance to try this as it is definitely something that would have caught my eye and now I know it’s not something I would need to stock.

Sil

:D those are the best kind of teas…. teas you can cross OFF your list lol

VariaTEA

That is very true.

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA

My hot cup completely cooled before I got a chance to try it so sipping on it cooled, I can only say my taste buds are confused. This is weird and I don’t know whether or not it’s weird in a good way. I definitely get creamy coconut and the ginger is there too but there are other flavors that are coming together to make one unique concoction that I think I am just too tired to wrap my head around. Luckily I have more of this in my cupboard so I will be able to explore more in the future.

It’s so weird.

I wanted to make soup with it, it tasted like soup so much! After a while it got tired and I was happy to see it go.

Memily

It took me ages to find a happy place with this—cold brewing it ended up being a hit.

I find that every cup of this tea is so different

This has cooled down quite a but because my sister was having a relationship crisis that she wanted to talk about. Cool, this tastes vegetal but not in the same way that most greens taste. Instead, it actually tastes like vegetables in liquid form with a but of underlying astringency. It isn’t bad but nothing I feel compelled to stock either. Thank you Sil for the sample. I look forward to seeing what Cavocorax has to say about this blend.

Sil

figured it would be an interesting for you guys to try since you tend to feel about greens the way i do. this one was a little unique so wanted to share :)

VariaTEA

When I opened the package I was definitely shocked to see almost black tea but it all made sense after it steeped and the leaves came out green

Grabbed a sample of this from Cavocorax’s tin and all I can say is “whoa, lemon!”. Thank you Cavo!

drank After Dark by Steam Tea House
2582 tasting notes

Every time I saw this reviewed, I would get really excited about it because everyone makes it sound so good but when I read the ingredients I lose interest because it is filled with a whole bunch of things I tend to avoid. However, when I was visiting Sil, she have me a sample so I could finally try it for myself. Sipping it now, I want to love it. I really, really do but I am getting a whole lot of cardamom, a little but of dark chocolate, and not much else. It’s not bad but it’s not something I personally would stock. Nonetheless, thank you Sil for the opportunity to see for myself what this tea is all about and I am especially grateful because I know how much of a fan you are :)

Courtney

I always have the exact same reaction! Sil makes it sounds amazingly delicious, then I check the ingredients and lose interest.

Marzipan

I’m pretty over red rooibos.

VariaTEA

Well I will say the rooibos doesn’t have a heavy presence at all which I know is something you dislike

Sil

haha yeah it’s not a rooibos tea…but, as variaTEA mentioned, if you don’t like the other ingredients, you won’t like this one :)

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
2582 tasting notes

Got this iced as my $1 TTG from DAVIDs and each time I have it, I am amazed at how similar to a snowcone this actually is. I think I might actually stock up on it next time I go in to the store because it is a nice herbal for the occasional cold brew.

whatshesaid

It really is snowcone like!

My Green Terrace Tea samples arrived today and I was so excited to come home and try this out. It is really a nice cup of tea. It’s velvety smooth with a delicious honey sweetness and a nice bit of malt. There is also a little touch of dried fruit, like raisins, to give this just a little but more depth. Yum! Thank you to the wonderful people at Green Terrace Teas for sending this my way :)

Cheri

All of the reviews people have written for this tea make it sound delicious.

Lariel of Lórien

Glad I picked this one, now it would only get here.

VariaTEA

It is quite nice and certainly worth a try.

drank Loco Lime by RiverTea
2582 tasting notes

I stole a sample of this out of Cavocorax’s tin because it smelled so good and it is good but a little on the sweet side. I am picking up on carrot mostly which is alright because I like carrots but I certainly would have never guessed this was a lime tea. Thank you Cavo!!

Cavocorax

Carrot? That is loco!

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.
