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

Airplane Tea
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. ..


mmm..gotta love the taste of dead trees XD

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.

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.

165 °F / 73 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp

Not really al fan of this one. Tasted funky when hot and the smell was weird too. Its cooled down and I’m not tasting any orange.

1 tsp

I have found that orange flavors are hit or miss….

drank Blue Lagoon by DAVIDsTEA

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

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.

The first time I tried this tea I wasn’t very impressed. I must have done something wrong because this time around I’m finding it quite nice. The vanilla is subtle like a ninja you don’t really know it’s there until bam. The aftertaste is what really does it to me. Kinda minty almost.

It’s good hot and cold. I’m honestly not sure of which I prefer more but I think I’m leaning a little more towards the cold because I can taste more vanilla.

Flavors: Cream, Vanilla

4 min, 45 sec

“like a ninja” xD I like it

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.
