222 Tasting Notes

I wish this store hadn’t closed! I loved getting local, non-mass marketed flavours. :( This was one of the first flavoured greens I ever tried, and is to date I think the only one I’ve add with lychee. Pity, because that is a really unique flavour!

drank Green and Fruity by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

I loved this when it first came out, and as time went on, I found the rooibos base to be a bit too strong. Which is sad, because hello, mega fruit flavours! Maybe I just need to give this another go one of these days, and see if my taste can be altered.

drank Honeydew Mate by DAVIDsTEA

Probably my most liked mate blend (again, it’s the fruit). I hoarded this as much as I could, and I was very sad to see my stash go. I hope this comes back again in the spring!

drank Red Velvet Cake by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

I loved this when it first came out, but my liking of sweet tea flavours has decreased over the past few months. If I were to get this one again, it would be in a much smaller amount – no need for another tin. I usually add milk to this one, so it’s ncie and creamy, but often by the time I get to the end of my mug I’m almost feeling sickly. Not the sensation I want when drinking tea!

drank Pom Springs by DAVIDsTEA

I keep forgetting to pick this one up! Sigh. I can’t tell if I like one better than Green Seduction (they taste very similar to me), but the smell of this one is delicious. Again, it has pomegranate, so yay!

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA

I wish this would be made part of the permanent collection – yum! One of my favourite flavoured black teas, hands down. I remember it being slightly expensive for a black tea, but it has the all-elusive pomegranate (one of my favourite tea flavours). One of these days…

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

I finally caved an got a tin of this, becaise it’s the one tea in my house that all the tea drinkers love. I wish it wasn’t so expensive, but it’s an oolong, so I will have to grin and bear it. I love the pineapple flavour, I love the lightness and the smell is to die for. Definitely a keeper.

Ah I really need to try this one!! Is it really sweet?

It’s not super sweet, in my opinion – the oolong base balances that out.

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

This one is good, but it needs more pear, I think! DT does their apple teas well. but I think I’m in the ‘off’ stage in my on and off relationship with that particular flavour, LOL. Once I tire a little more of cinnamon teas, I reckon this one will make the rounds again.

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

Another one I have to try again soon, but from my memory… this smelled like pie and tasted delicious. Coconut, lemon and a hint of ginger. Much more to my taste than Cocomint Cream (a lighter, less creamy tea, I think), and if it wasn’t so expensive, again it probably would have found a home on my tea shelf. As it stands for now, I’ll just have to get it in samples or use some frequent steeper points to get it.

I’ve had a couple of cups of this in the past few days – mmmm. I LOVE Darjeelings, and I especially love this particular blend. Black tea has always been my favourite, and this one is a super comforting drink – right behind the Earl Grey family. I add a splash of milk and I get into a happy mood. I want a Darjeeling present in my tea cupboard at all times, haha.
