Need to steep longer then 2 mins though. Just not strong enough to detect much. Even at 4 its still a bit weak. A bit of gingwr here a tad of floral there. According to the interwebs palekaiko means paradise.

The first steep was more then 2.5 mins. Not sure about the flavor but the dry leaf and fruit smell good. Otherwise I’m not really a fan of this one besides the smell. I’ll give it a couple more goes just in case.

What I really love is the picture on the tin. The mountain image in the background is in Hanalei, Kauai, Hawai’i. One of my favorite places in the world.

Interesting. My tin sticker is different then the one in the pic here.

Though I’m not a huge fan of black tea I do like to try as many different teas as I can. This one reminds me if a shaved ice flavor I got once, or maybe the mixture of flavors. I’m enjoying this one more then I thought I would.

An interesting chai… but I feel like it’s missing a good deep chai taste. Plus there is absolutely no pumpkin… But I do like the spiciness of it. But that’s about it…

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea

It’s September and Pumpkin everything is upon us. Seeing as how I don’t drink coffee I figured I would have to try a pumpkin tea something or another. I prefer my chai to be spicy. A bit of zip. This has chai flavor but for me it’s too sweet. Good base. Although I can barely taste it. Add a bit more zip and I think this would be a hit. Uh… you know… I’m not really sensing much pumpkin either… Or was the pumpkin just those candy pieces?

Flavors: Sugar

I’m excited to try this!

Had to pick up this blend during my first visit to their Chicago store on Division. Great store. Really wish I could have geeked out more but it was hot out and I was with my family.

Anyway. Very unique blend! The black tea comes out the more you steep it. Really an interesting blend. So much going on. Don’t even know where to begin.

I’m hoping I can get up there and visit that store before winter makes it too cold. Love it!

What a lovely tea! It smells great. The flavors are a perfect blend. Great addition to these cinnamon rolls. The flavors blend so well it’s almost hard to pick them apart. You can get a feeling for the base on first impact but it’s quickly taken over by fruity sensations.

What a gorgeous color! Couldn’t pass up trying this one. My mixer broke so I’m using my blender… Not quite the same. But I imagine the taste is pretty much the same. Very smooth with a bit of creaminess. A bit earthy at first but it finishes grassy.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
