325 Tasting Notes
Rooibos and me have a very complicated relationship, LOL. I picked this sample because of the raspberry, and I like vanilla too, so I thought this should work! I definitely taste raspberry (along with the sometimes-questionable rooibos base, haha, I think I may have steeped it too long), but not really on the vanilla. Boo, as I was looking forward to that. All in all, not a bad tea, but watch the steeping time and don’t expect any vanilla. Pity that’s in the name!
Oh wow, I could drink an entire bucket of this one, I think! Delicious! Love the spices, love the smell, etc etc. I don’t think I steeped it for long enough, as the taste was a little milder than what I was expecting, but overall, this is definitely a thumbs up. I love chais that feature cinnamon, especially when the are caffeine free so I can drink them right before bed!
I didn’t like this one as much as I thought I would – I think the addition of the lemongrass was what killed it. Which is sad, as I usually quite like lemongrass. I did like the string mint and lime flavour, though, and maybe this is what should have been concentrated on? I also didn’t add an milk to this one due to the hibiscus. This is still a good tea, but just be prepared for a bit of an unusual flavour for something with ‘Mojito’ as the name.
Sleigh Ride is one of my beloved blends from DT, and I was curious to see if this one would be anything similar to it. I was sort of correct, LOL, as there’s a lot more going on in this one than in Sleigh Ride, so the taste was a bit weird – I find tea that have a bunch of flavour profiles don’t necessarily do them all well. I did enjoy my cup, though, and I do like that it’s caffeine free!
I just ordered a crapton of samples from t leaf T, so my next few reviews will be from them, LOL.
I was hoping this one would be similar to Super Ginger from DT, and while the addition of the lemongrass and kawakawa (which I had never heard of until I tried this) does make a difference in the taste (no shocker there), I felt it works as a replacement. I don’t think I’d drink this one a lot, but it’s definitely good to have on hand when the ginger fix needs attention, haha
This was one of the first teas I ever had from DavidsTea, way back when, so I’m glad it has made a bit of a comeback, and it was one of the ones I asked mom to include in my care package :)
Anyway, this is DELICIOUS as a strongly-steeped iced tea (I have to make my little sample go a long way, so I steeped this for, like, two days, LOL). Maybe a bit more potent than some people would like, but I still refuse to add sugar.
