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

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

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.

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

Preparation
4 min, 45 sec

Much spicy. Very not wow. I don’t usually use that meme but i couldn’t help it. It’s a spicy bland chai. I’ve added some orange honey to it and even that doesn’t help much.

The dry smell has more of a potpourri scent to it then a tea scent. Which made me kinda skeptical of how this tea would taste. However, I am quite enjoying this tea. For a tea that has spice I find it to be on the lighter side. Which is fine because sometimes they really get strong. This would be a great tea to mix into a pie!

Making breakfast while steeping tea is not a good idea, at least without a timer anyway. Surprisingly, its not anywhere near as bitter as I thought it would be. I’m not getting any tartness from the pomegranate, just lots of floral flavors.

On the history side of things i wonder how many flavored teas they had back then. It would be interesting to find out what all was steeping in the harbor. Not that I would want to it, just curious.

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)
