I actually expected this to have a grenadine component to it. Isn’t that typical of Monk’s Blends?

To my surprise, I got a very nice milk Oolong, perfect for a super stressful week at work. I think I’ll pick up more of this next time I’m at DavidsTea. Or see if I can find the constituent parts elsewhere and make my own…

It’s a fruity Earl Grey, no surprises here. I actually get strawberry from this, but it’s a little on the sour side, especially if this tea steeps more than two minutes. Glad I tried it, but I’m not sure it’s the Earl for me.

A sample from the lovely Courtney. This is a beautiful tea, smooth with fruit notes. Loved it.

Really liked this one. The ginger is warming, which was quite welcome in my very cold office last week.

Smells like Robitussin. Tastes like fruit with a nice sour tang. Decent tea and very appropriate for the lovely spring weather we’re (finally) having.

Work tea sipdown.

This was a godsend the past two weeks when I had a combination of cold and spring allergies. As with all good sick teas I, uh, didn’t taste much. Oops. It’s much better hot because this one is extremely drying and unpleasantly floral when cold.

I liked this one a lot. Unfortunately, it just tasted like plain green tea to me, maybe a little sweeter than an unflavored green tea but the flavors weren’t actually noticeable. In any case, it was nice to sip at work and I might consider ordering more.

Huh.

I don’t like this. I think it’s a combination of flavor loss due to age and what flavor is there is kind of like very old spices. Too bad too, because spiced Apple tea should be tasty.

I don’t think this aged well. I got a generic fruity flavor and … nothing else. Oh well. It was decent.

And just like the first time I had this, it is all cream, no blueberries. Still good, and it held up well for such an old tea. I might reorder this.

Bio

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!
