No rating as this is one of my own custom blends from Adagio. I really do love how you can taste each flavor in each sip: cherry, chocolate and cream. Yums. Much needed today!
556 Tasting Notes
I got this tea after a fellow customer at Voila told me how awesome it was. “You just want to rub it all over your body,” she said. At first I thought, OK, weirdo, but then I brewed it up myself and I see what she means!
This is in-your-face mango and citrus bliss. I ate some of the mango pieces before brewing – OK, now I’m the weirdo. Dry, this tea smells like sunshine. Steeped, this will knock your freakin’ socks off.
I would rub this over my body, take a bath in it, name my first born after it. It is so yummy – citrusy, mango-y, smooth, sweet and utterly satisfying. If you want a mango tea, you really don’t – you want this tisane. If you want an afternoon tea, you really want this. Trust me, it’s phenomenal. Delish. Worth going to work to enjoy (I left my tin there). So, so, so yummy!
I finished the cuppa before I finished this posting. Seriously.
As a paranormal investigator and a fan of the paranormal, of course I had to get this one!
Love the blend of vanilla and mint – one of my favorite combos. This is light and airy (ghost-like, if you will), but still very flavorful and tasty. The vanilla has a very marshmallow quality to it versus a vanilla bean flavor, which works well with all the other flavors you’ve got going on in this tea. I taste peppermint and spearmint, but I did just have a peppermint cuppa so perhaps I’m in that mindset… none of the flavors are overpowering, which is perfect with the veggie green tea flavor.
I’d love for this to be a permanent 52Teas flavor…or at least in the Christmas collection (hint hint, Frank). This is right up there with Pancake Breakfast. Love it! :)
Got this with my Graveyard Mist purchase because you can’t buy just one of Frank’s gems! :) This is a really unique flavor. I taste the lemon and the marshmallow, but it’s not an artificial of either, which is nice. I wonder how this is iced?
The kitten on the package is adorable too. Makes me miss my kitty-cat, Reesi. We put her to sleep in 2006 after 15 years of awesomeness. Seriously, she was the best cat ever. She’s spoiled us for other cats! Anyhoo, she would probably enjoy this…or at least enjoy a snack while I enjoyed this cuppa. :)
It’s always nice to be the first to review a tea, so you’re not swayed by any descriptions from previous sippers. :) Still I’m surprised that I’m the first to log this one!
Mint is typically an afternoon enjoyment, because I blend it with my herbals. But with the Assam black tea I gave this a try. Went terrific with a bagel!
I only taste peppermint and a black tea base. There are supposedly other flavors, according to the ingredients, but it’s a bagged tea so I don’t think it’s high quality enough to allow all the flavors to mingle and dance. No worries, though, as a peppermint black tea this is terrific.
This tea is such an autumn gem! I love the medley of chocolate-y goodness and spice, with a hint of carrot. I can kind of taste the icing a bit more this time. The only drawback? Now I want some cake.
Found this bag in my stash of work teas – It’s one of the few bagged teas I really enjoy, you just have to watch the water temp since it’s oolong. I love the subtle chocolate flavor and pop of mint at the end of the sip; it’s simply yummy!
OMG – I love this iced, but right now I’m enjoying a hot cuppa. This blend of strawberry and green tea is just HAPPY. :) Please see other notes, this is a fave of mine!
Old Reliable. It’s all hot and gross outside here in MD, but once you recover from the shock of that and settle in a nice, air-conditioned locale, you get cold…and you want tea. So here I am drinking one of my faves.
Please see other notes – this is the tea I drink the most, other than my personal blends. :)
No rating as this is my own. This is great wake-up cuppa without being too lemony or too in-your-face. Gunpowder green with citrusy green rooibos. Delish!
David’s Tea is quickly becoming my favorite online tea retailer. I’m pretty sure if there was a store nearby I’d visit every day, and drop hundreds, if not thousands, there!
This was a sample in my most recent order. I brewed it up last night, and added honey, as I’m battling a cold (already?!). This flavor is amazing! You can taste the spices and coconut flavor, which is unique and fun. I bet this is beyond delicious iced, but I finished up the sample last night when I brewed a larger pot of it, with the intention of sharing it with my husband…and promptly finishing it myself. Don’t tell. ;)
I will be ordering this one when I place the order for the fall collection.
Bottom line: LOVE IT! :)
No matter how many teas I try, this is Old Reliable. I love the spicy medley and the POW flavor palette. This reminds me of fall, even though I drink it year round. I’m ready for autumn to get here – goodbye humidity, bad hair days, and weather-induced migraines! Please?
Mango salsa in a cuppa. This is a fun, spicy blend, perfect as an AM wake-up – and a sinus wakeup! I love how the chili pepper complements the sweet mango flavor. I bet this would be great iced although I enjoyed my cup hot. Didn’t need to add any sweetener – which is perfect since I’m trying to cut back. The mango chunks are sweet enough.
Backlogged – had this yesterday while home sick with Yet Another Migraine From Hell.
Carrot Cake is one of my favorite varieties of cake. OK, look, I’ve yet to meet a cake I didn’t like. ;)
I love the medley of this – allspice with a hint of carrot, and a hint of cream cheese/buttercream flavor. Because it’s oolong, I would be very careful about steeping and the temp of the water. I kept it at 192 degrees and steeped for exactly 6 minutes; I like a stronger tea. Bottom line, this is a new fave.
Yum yum! This is terrific both iced and hot – there’s a hint of cherry and almond with lots of green tea deliciousness. This is playful and fun. A cupboard essential!
I really love this cuppa any time of day. I’m enjoying it now as my tummy is being a bit mean and upset. It’s soothing and pleasant to the palate. Delish!
This is a hearty, strong, bold tea blend – a great AM wakeup cup. I have a hard time judging black teas because they often taste similar to me – plain, or unflavored. So this is good, definitely better than your average run-of-the-mill grocery version, and does its job of waking me up – but other than that, it’s typical. Good, but not something I’d regularly stock as “stellar” from David’s Tea.
No rating as this is my own. I blended this up with more green rooibos and less jasmine pearls, and I think I like this version better. Let me know if you want a sample! :)
I upped my rating on this one, after trying the bagged variety and letting it steep for the length of the cup. (I also sampled this after the H bomb of David’s Tea’s Paradise Found, and nothing could be that tart!) This is decent, a nice everyday tea. It’s nothing special, nothing unique, but it has a smooth citrus-y flavor and is pleasant enough. It just doesn’t WOW me.
Not a big hibiscus fan and this is heavy on the H. I cut the tart zing with sugar and that helped some. I love the way this smells, both dry and brewed – like a tropical paradise. It’s a decent tea, not my fave from David’s Tea, but not the worst thing I’ve ever consumed.
Holy heck – this is one of the best darn teas I’ve ever had! It tastes like pina coladas, like a tropical vacay, like Californian summers… Great hot and FABULOUS iced! Another new cupboard essential. I drink this down in three gulps, reinfused and (im)patiently waited for it to cool to try it “iced.” SO yummy!
I’m a nut for anything strawberry, so of course I’d opt for a strawberry tea. The “shortcake” part of this tea is just a bonus. This does taste like strawberry cake, and I love that the strawberry flavor tastes more real than artificial. (Not that I’m anti-artificial strawberry or anything.) I steeped for five minutes and was able to reinfuse – always a bonus. This is a new cupboard staple! Oh, and it’s already sweet enough on its own, no additional sugar or sweetener required – always a good sign.
Holy cow – if this is supposed to make you healthy, I should be healthier in no time! I love this licorice, ginger and herbal blissful tea! It’s very flavorful and spicy, which I love. I saw the other note after I had already brewed it for five minutes and I enjoyed the spicy cuppa, although I know not everyone is a licorice fan. The spices overpower the orange peel and citrus side, which I don’t mind, but if you’re looking for an orange-and-spice cuppa, this isn’t it. This is a great late-afternoon and evening tea, as it relaxes your mind. I purchased this as part of my inaugural Davids Tea order and I’m hooked – on the blend and David’s Tea. :)
No rating as this is my own. I really enjoyed this medley of smoky gunpowder green and sunny green rooibos. It reminded me of a Sunny’s Surplus store (I love that surplus smell), and spending hours reading about WWII and the Civil War when I was younger. OK, I still do that. And I play lots of war video games. And, I support our troops! “Land of the free, because of the brave.”
