Meh.

If I’m heavy handed with the milk, it’s very creamy. Otherwise, it just tastes like sated nuts to me. I’m not even sure I’d say it tastes like pistachios. I definitely don’t get a cohesive pistachio ice cream.flavor from this, at any rate.

This one isn’t bad but I feel no need to repurchase.

Sipdown!

Pretty good for a work tea, though I feel like I could have used 2 teaspoons instead of a tablespoon and gotten a similar flavor. The sweetness from the licorice is consistent and hangs around, though not in an unpleasant way. The cinnamon and vanilla flavors, however, are more inconsistent. Though, I did have a few cups of this that tasted like cinnamon rolls gooey from the oven … That was kind of spectacular.

This one is a bit astringent, but the fruit flavor does a lot to cover it. I’m not sure I’d call it pomegranate – it’s more red berry than anything else – but it makes for a juicy tea.

I love this as a work tea and may have to order/get more. The grapefruit is just a bit sharp and the vanilla contributes a wonderful, cake-like quality to the tea. The dry least even smells fluffy and light, just like this tea tastes. Yum!

This one smells medicinal, but luckily doesn’t taste medicinal. I like the almond in this one – it contributes a sweetness to the tea I don’t think it would have otherwise. I don’t get any lemon, though; this one actually tastes like watered down bubblegum. Weird.

I got this one as part of a sampler that I still haven’t tried. A year after getting it. Yikes! In an effort to try/drink up some of my older teas, this one (along with its sampler and another untouched sampler) have been packed up for work.

This was not bitter as I expected it to be. It’s vaguely sweet with a faint tropical fruit flavor. I get hints of coconut, but none of the other fruits that are supposed to be in this blend. I like it, but I don’t think it’s something I’ll need to restock once my sample is finished.

Flavors: Coconut, Sweet

Vegetal, but not bad. Crisp and refreshing.

Enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. The strawberry is not it’s usual unbearably tart self. It’s a sweeter strawberry tea!

When I first had this tea, it tasted spot-on like banana bread. Now, it’s just carmelized sugar in the faintest way. Not bad, but a far cry from the bananas foster goodness I was hoping for.

This one smells better than it tastes.

Dry, its like a spice cookie. Steeped, its just spice and astringency. Not bad, but kind of a let down based on how good it smells. Probably should have had it with milk and sugar, but I didn’t have any at work.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
