drank Peach Ginger by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
301 tasting notes

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
301 tasting notes

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.

drank Moment of Zen by DAVIDsTEA
301 tasting notes

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
301 tasting notes

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
301 tasting notes

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!
