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.

This is a classic, warming chai. Really enjoyed the spices. I did not, however, enjoy the way the apple contributes a bitter/sharp flavor.

I liked this one. It was sweet and creamy, vaguely fruity. I don’t get any pie crust flavor, which was disappointing, but not bad overall.

This one had a fruity taste to it that reminded me a lot of a pomegranate black tea I had a while ago. Decent, but forgettable. Not a reorder.

After re-reading my first note, I feel like this one didn’t agree well. It tasted like a spicy chai with lots of cinnamon this time around. Not bad, but nowhere near as good as the cinnamon coffee cake I originally described.

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.

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 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!
