drank The Glow (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

A weird inital gathering of ingredients, but since this (to me) smells (and kind of tastes) like an oatmeal cookie, I’ll forgive it. This is surprisingly good, and an excellent blend to have before bed. Also, yay, organic. Definitely will be keeping this one around.

Had this to go today… It’s weird, because I tried some tea last week from the Dominican: pure cocoa husks. And it was delicious with some milk (I enjoy the slightly bitter taste of dark chocolate, so no sugar for me). When this tea was introduced, I knew I had to try it! It’s good – one of the few chocolate-based teas I don’t actually find too sweet. I didn’t really get any blueberry taste with this, but that’s not what I was going for, so it’s not a big miss for me!

drank Serenity Now by DAVIDsTEA

I was a little vary of this one due to the lavender (I’m not a huge fan of floral teas), but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the taste (and I do love the fact that it’s organic)! I got a strong strawberry flavour (yay) out of my cup, and the lavender wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. I had this hot (it still feels like winter out, le sigh), and it is definitely a relaxing-type tea. I’d love to try it iced, see if I like it as much. Out of the three samples I picked up yesterday (this, Spa Day and Vanilla Rose), I think this is my favourite. I

drank Spa Day by DAVIDsTEA

Finally, a new tea for me to try! :) Quickly grabbed 10g of this to go this afternoon, and made a mug when I got home. A little too heavy on the coconut for me (though that might have been the amount of coconut pieces in my particular cup, I could certainly try and make it without), but the mango flavour does shine through. I do enjoy a good mango tea, and since this is cheaper than Mango Madness, I may be picking up more of this one in the future.

This is a nice change from the normal black tea, though it is fairly generic. I do enjoy the tropical flavour, though not as strong as I would like it to be.

Heading to Alice’s is now a staple of any visit of mine to NYC. Love, love this place and their tea. Clearly, I had to try their main blend!

FABULOUS straight, black tea. I tried this while in NYC last week, and if it hadn’t been so expensive to buy in a tin, I would have taken some home with me. Again, this only cemented my love for teas from the Darjeeling area.

There are few fruity black tea blends that I truly like, those this is one of them! I love me some passionfruit, which is what initially attracted me to this blend. The taste is maybe a little too subtle to get a higher rating, but I will be sad when my stash of this runs out.

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA

I like this one, I have to say, even if it does remind me a little of orange drink mix. I do enjoy a good, orange-flavoured tea, and this certianly fits the bill – along with the peach and apricot flavours I think I can also pick out. That said, there are other orange teas I like better and that are less expensive, so while I’m glad I tried this one, I won’t be in a rush to get a lot more.

drank Strawberry Fields by DAVIDsTEA

I’m upping my rating on this one because I tried it iced and I liked it much better! Still not my favourite iced flavour (I’m finding lately that I like my black tea blends better hot), but I didn’t find any weird taste like I did before. The candy strawberry flavour works better as an iced tea, I think, so if I ever drink this again in the future, it will definitely be iced.
