The blood orange juiciness is prevalent in the aroma and flavor but the black tea balances it out well.

drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA

Nice genmaicha. I love the light green color of the tea; some other genmaicha that I’ve tried had a darker color brew, which isn’t the case for this brand’s tea.

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA

The smell was amazing. It continued to permeate my apartment even though the tea had gone cold. The tea alone would be good as dessert.

drank Duchess Grey Tea by Trader Joe's

Pleasant Lemon scent and flavor.

Made the mistake of adding whole milk one time, ack, never again. So much better black.

More orange than peppermint; otherwise, generally mild-tasting. Sometimes I just want to drink something that isn’t too strong and like other Pickwick teas, this fits that bill just right.

Never thought that I would enjoy a decaf tea, but somehow this worked!

I saw this recommended in one of the food blogs that I regularly read, so when I saw it at Trader Joe’s, I picked up a box. The peppermint aroma is enjoyable as soon as you open the box, and remains even after a double steeping.

I will probably hoard a few boxes of this so that I can enjoy it long after the holiday season.

drank French Vanilla by Bigelow

Nice vanilla flavor, and delicious with milk.

UPDATE Jan-2012: I’ve stopped drinking this tea for a while because I thought it was sweet to the point of being cloying, but then I looked at my own tasting note and realize that in order to enjoy it, I have to add milk. Dairy or non-dairy (almond, soy), it doesn’t matter.

A pleasant enough green tea, but I think it may fare better as an iced tea so that I can appreciate the mango and/or passionfruit notes.
