98 Tasting Notes

Also a pleasant surprise, since I don’t norammly enjoy the taste of root beer. But hey, I’ll try just about any tea once! The taste wasn’t as strong as I feared (which may deter those who do like a good root beer flavour), and I sipped this down quite quickly.

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

This was a pleasant surprise! Sweet, yes, but not overly so, in my opinion. Very light and refreshing, and definitely reminiscent of the typcial cotton candy taste. I almost forget I was drinknig rooibos. Had this is a to go today, and will definitely be back for more!

drank Rooibos Peach by World Tea House

I think I put too many leaves in when I made this earlier today – super strong, super earthy and not as much peach flavour as I wanted. Boo. Or maybe it’s just better as an iced blend, which I’ll have to try soon. That said, I did like the taste, once I got used to it. And I love that this is organic and not mass market. A couple of things I’m trying to get into more. Curse living on an island where shipping isn’t so easy to do!

Tried this one on a bit of a whim – my local DT is running out of fruit-based flavours that I haven’t tried iced, haha. I definitely got the earthy base from this one, and while the peach/papaya flavours were there, they weren’t as strong as I would liked for them to have been. I know that’s kind of the whole point of drinking maté, but still.

This tastes like a pina colada with a kick. LOVE that David’s did another blend with pineapple. This one is definitely a winner!

Don’t really know what I was expecting with this murky green coloured tea…. But oh my, it was even better than I thought! I did add some agave, though, so that may have helped. There are still other flavours I like better, but I did appreciate the presence of strawberry in this one.

drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA

This one has so mkany flavours in it that I’m honestly not quite sure what to make of it. I don’t think I steeped it long enough, as the flavour was a bit more milder than what I was expecting. I wished it had more pineapple, though! I love pineapple-infused teas.

After I realsied I had a weird craving for ginger, I picked up 25g of this this afternoon. Nice and warm and soothing and very spicy – exactly what I was looking for. It’s nice to get back to the basics every now and again! I will definitely be picking more of this up (especially when my stash of Hot Mama runs out).

drank Earl Grey Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

I love Earl Grey blends, but oddly didn’t enjoy this one as much as I thought I would. It was still good, mind you, but there was a hint of… something in my cup that just tasted a little off. Maybe it was the rooibos (lord knows I have an up and down relationship with that). I wish they weren’t discontinuing the decaf earl grey, as I like that blend much better – I think true Earl’s are meant to be of the black tea family.

drank Watermelon Mint by DAVIDsTEA

Man, the summer collection from DT this year so far is can’t miss! Another delicious offering! As I wanted to make this iced, I was a little wary of the mint flavour (I love it in hot teas, but iced is hit or miss), but as soon as I took my first sip, all my worries about that vanished. This is so good. And I didn’t even add sweetener, which apparently makes the melon flavour come out even more (I may try that at a later date, even though I usually do all my iced teas unsweetened). This blend is definitely a win!
