drank Guava Cadabra by DAVIDsTEA

After having the wild colored guava in Hawai’i I had to try this. It would be kinda cool if that pink color would stay so you could see it in the dry pieces. The water is a lovely royal red. My first sip in the first 4 mins was better then the second at 7ish mins. I fear this tea is somewhat ruined by tye hibiscus. I’m going to try to dig it out for the next cup. Minus the hibiscus it’s a lovely tea. I knew I’d like it the moment i opened the bag and smelled guava.

On a side note, I am drinking this while enjoying a Godiva cake truffle chocolate flight. So nummy.

8 min or more 1 tsp

Holy bitterness Batman! I barley steeped it for 2 mins and bam! so bitter. xp Drink it with milk indeed. But I have no milk so I shall use lemon. I know I’ve had this tea before and it was fine. But its so bitter this time that I can’t drink it. The lemon did’t help.

What a nice tea! You can really taste caramel. Thought for sure that the rooibos would overpower this one but instead the first flavor to emerge is caramel followed by the smooth rooibos. Wish they were still selling it

Not gonna lie; if I wasn’t nursing I wouldn’t be drinking this. Probably would have never looked at it either. It’s a weird mix of things but I think it helps. The spearmint seems to stand out the most w/ a hint of lemon verbena.

Earthy & smooth. Very earthy. Reminds me of a forest in the dead of winter. No snow. Just brown earth and bare trees. Actually, this tastes like the smell of one of those bare trees when you break a branch. ..

What a lovely smell. Almost matches the flavor. Speaking of flavor I did not like this hot. The sencha overpowered everything. But as it cooled off the grape came out nicely.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Steeping tea while cooking dinner usually isn’t a good idea for me because I tend to forget about the tea. This time I went out to my garden and when I came back I looked at it and was like… well shoot. BUT! It wasn’t ruined! Huzzah. Yay for teas that get sweeter as they steep. (Like Indigo Tea Co’s Red Hot Cinnamon). I actually had to steep it for a couple minutes after that because I thought it was too light. IT’s good hot and cold. Not my favorite chocolate tea I will admit but it is still quite good.

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

Went into mu first David’s Tea store the other day! What a delight. We need some stores in MN!! I bought this tea in what was kinda like a clearance section I believe. The lady at the front told me that they are going to discontinue this tea, which is too bad because it’s quite good. Not many teas use blueberries and out of the ones I’ve had none of them could get such a luscious flavor like this! Good hot but I am also really enjoying it cold as well.

Flavors: Blueberry

Preparation
155 °F / 68 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp

I agree! Maybe we need to start a petition to get them in MN!

I sent them an e-mail to request a store in the Mall of america. Someone needs to give Teavana some competition.

drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA

When i saw someone post about this i had to try it. Had a long layover in New York so i took a train into the city and went straight to Davids tea. I was tempted to buy more then 1oz but finding out that there was chamomile in it made me wary. But like others i was pleasantly surprised that the chamomile doesn’t overpower the flavor and it really does taste similar to a mango lassi.

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)
