Had this with my supper out the other night… Love love love Earl Grey, and this was a nice, comforting two c ups on an unusually chilly August evening.

drank Berry White by DAVIDsTEA
235 tasting notes

Very mild blueberry flavour to this one – likely due to the white tea base. I think it’s a bit too mild for my taste (I do like my fruit teas to be stronger, as a whole), but as an organic tea, I’m certainly happy to have tried it. I wouldn’t say this is a definite must purchase again, but I will keep it in mind.

am I the only one who thought about Barry White when they heard the name of this tea? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_White

Nope, I had that thought as well! :P

Haha that’s great :)

I have been looking a decaf black tea that I like as much as the (now discontinued) Earl Grey from DT. This one is decent with some milk, but the hunt will continue!

Happily surprised by this one! My love for chocolate teas has decreased significantly because I’ve realised I really don’t like teas overly sweet. This one has a nice blend of the chocolate and the spices and worked really well with milk. I just wish I wasn’t drinking it in July, haha. The weather here lately has been absolutely terrible and cold and I’ve been drinking far more hot teas than I normally would. I don’t think I’ve ever drank chai in the summer before, and I’ve after having it a bunch of times already this week.

drank Peach Ginger by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

I think I was expecting more out of this one – a bolder flavour, to be sure. It smelled wonderful, and I steeped it for a long time, but it was still too mild. Sigh. I do love peach and ginger separately, and I was excited to try a tea where they were combined, and while this was still pleasant to drink, this was a bit of a let down. :/

drank Gypsy Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Floral teas are another questionable experience for me, but this one wasn’t bad! I’m wary of drinking most black tea blends sans milk, but I can’t drink floral blends with it, haha. So straight up was what I went for this – a decent cup, I have to say! I don’t know if I’d buy this one on my own, but I’m definitely glad I tried this.

drank Coconut Chai by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

I approach all coconut teas with caution, and I have to say that this one was pretty good. I do like my chais bold, and this one was definitely milder than what I prefer. However, that also meant that the coconut wasn’t as strong, either, which for me is a good thing. This reminds me of Coco Chai Rooibos from DT, though this has a different base. All in all, I’m pleased with this sample, and I look forward to trying the rest.

I shouldn’t be drinking chai in the middle of July! LOL. The summer seems to have skipped me… Alas. I was excited to see this is my sample, as I do enjoy a spicy rooibos blend, and I do like this! It’s definitely more spicy than sweet, though I can taste the caramel a little. I think I like cinnamon rooibis chai from DT better, but this is a tasty blend in it’s own right – not bad for a tea bag!

What? An EG I haven’t already tried? OMG. Received this as a birthday gift, though I’m only just now getting around to trying it. Mmmmm. Subtle flavours, but they work nicely together, I have to say. This was my first tea from this company, and I look forward to trying the other samples I have from them!

drank Sweet Lime by DAVIDsTEA

Tried this one iced today… Love! Nice and tangy, and the lime flavour is definitely strong. It isn`t my favourite fruit blend (must be the white base, I suppose), but I would happily get more of this to add to my arsenal of flavours.
