This one kind of reminds me of Grape Expectations – must be the fruit flavour, I guess. I do like this, just not as much as the grape, haha. And I am not getting as much jasmine as I thought there would be, which is also kind of a let down. Maybe I will try this one again later iced, to see if I change my rating.

drank Electric Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

I don’t give out 100 ratings very often, and I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever given one to a maté. I LOVE this tea. I’ve had it both hot and iced and it is freaking delicious . I’ve got a tin at home and at work, and my only downfall will be forgetting that this is a stimulant and drinking it at night, therefore causing me not to sleep, haha. DT, NEVER discontinue this one!

drank Black Cherry by DAVIDsTEA

Not a cherry fan, but I still wanted to give this flavour a go. Pleasantly surprised, I must say! Not as strong/tart as I was expecting.

drank Shirley Temple by DAVIDsTEA

I’m actually surprised at how much how I liked this – I made it hot (not usually my first go-to when trying fruit-heavy teas), and I’m definitely wary of cherries. But I think the cherry flavour is more subtle than I was thinking, and I do love teas with orange. And, again, I appreciate this one being organic. I wish more of the fruit teas had this designation. Looking forward to trying this iced, as well.

Just ordered this to make iced tea with. Usually I don’t go for hibiscus teas, but I’ve been mixing in some plain lemongrass tea (one of my herbals I really want to use up)and the iced teas from that combination seem to be just the right amount of tartness. Glad to hear you like it, I hope I do too :P

I hope so! I found this one far less hibiscus-y than usual, actually. A pleasant surprise!

drank Banana Split by DAVIDsTEA
235 tasting notes

I was a little wary on trying this one, as I don’t like the dessert teas as much as the rest, and banana isn’t my flavour of choice, either. As predicted, this was sweet – not as sickly as I was expecting, which was a good thing. That said, while I finished off my mug (I originally brewed it hot, then decided I’d like it better iced), and there’s a little more in the sample I have, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more of this. I can see the tea’s appeal, but it’s just not for me.

drank Lung Ching by DAVIDsTEA
235 tasting notes

Considering this is a plain green, I’m actually realised surprised at how much I liked this! I guess it all has to do with the quality of the leaves and proper steeping methods. Of course, it’s expensive and a limited time only thing, so I think my 10g purchase of this will be all I get. Sigh.

Oh I just love this tea

drank Zomba Pearls by DAVIDsTEA

I love the look of this tea! I almost didn’t want to steep it, haha. I’m not a huge fan of straight whites, but I thought I’d give this one a go just to try it, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The employee at DT who served me said this tastes even better re-steeped, so I’ll have to give that a whirl later, as well.

drank Ruby Red by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve recently gotten into a grapefruit kick… I loved this an iced tea! Tart, but not overly so, and very drinkable. Definitely going to be in the rotation!

drank Raspberry Mojito by DAVIDsTEA

Not really sure where I stand on fruit + mint in my tea, but this was good! Possibly better than Watermelon Mint. Very refreshing as an iced tea.
