Iced, this is very refreshing. The mint leaves a cooling feeling for quite awhile. I really enjoy the watermelon. I remember someone mentioning something about bubblegum, and I got a hint of that here. But I enjoyed it.

Iced

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA

Sipdown of this tea today. I guess lots of the coconut sunk to the bottom of the bag because the pot I made was pretty creamy coconut with a little hint of mint and lemon. I actually preferred it this way! I didn’t really get any pineapple this time, but it was fine without it.

I made some rhubarb muffins with rhubarb from my garden, so this seemed to be a good pairing for my snack. I was completely right because this was delicious together.
This tea isn’t sweet at all, it is a little creamy, and maybe a little bit malty? I don’t know, I am not even sure how to describe it.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA

Enjoyed this again this summer as an iced tea. It is refreshing and very fruity! I made it a little stronger than recommended because the fruit pieces are so big. So, it was very hard to measure!
I am glad that mango is the main note because I love mangos!

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

I am still not getting “cookie dough” in this tea. I find this tea more nutty than what I expect from cookie dough.
I still enjoy this tea, it is just not what I was hoping it would taste like.

Mmm, this was creamy, and warming to the bone. It was a tad sweet and vegetal. In other words, delicious!

I am a sucker for any chocolate tea. This one was very sweet with the added sugar in it. But I didn’t really mind because I needed a treat. The pecans with the coconut and chocolate make an interesting combination. I might even restock this one, I will have to see.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA

I had this quite awhile ago, so now I kinda forget how it tasted, but it was fairly delicious if I remember correctly. The peach was maybe a tiny bit artificial, but it was a good iced tea.

drank SBT: Rainbow Sherbet by 52teas

I made this tea according to the directions on the package and it was fabulous for work. It was so convenient. It did not need to be sweetened at all, but wasn’t sickly sweet. I got a lot of orange flavour in mine.

I am not sure what happened, but this tea was incredibly bitter last week. I must have overleafed or had less water than I thought. What the heck?

Butiki Teas

Any chance you used boiling water? I’ve noticed that a number of people had instinctively used boiling water since the leaves are so black or sometime forget that it was an oolong and used boiling water.

Also, maybe could be a bitter piece of pecan.

Probably, I was half asleep when I made this tea! I will pay more attention next time!

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
