I love coconut, and this tea definitely has some notes of coconut. It is very complex, with notes of vanilla, banana, floral, and a tiny hint of citrus. Rose isn’t my favourite flavour in teas though, so I kind of had that taste in the back of my mind the whole time. I think if I could get this tea without the rose, it would be amazing. I do really enjoy this tea though. I will be tying it chilled tomorrow as well.

drank Strawberry Cream by Zen Tea

I cold brewed this earlier in the week. If I remember correctly, I think I prefer this hot brewed.
It seems that the cream flavour isn’t as pronounced as a cold brew.

The aroma of plum is floating around my kitchen, and it is lovely.
The taste is plum in the forefront, with brandy in the background. The cheesecake is in the aftertaste, but I don’t get that distinct “tang” that cheesecake makes me think of. I get more of a general creaminess.

drank Caramel Apple by Butiki Teas
818 tasting notes

This is delicious, so warming and it tastes like fall.
I am getting more burnt sugar than caramel for some reason, but it is so good. I find the apple to be subtle. In the background, there is floral and pear notes. This is a pretty complex tea with a few different layers.
This order is shaping up to be amazing!!

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I cold brewed this for about 8 hours overnight.
This is delicious! This is even better than I was imagining it to be. It is of course lemon, but it is soft and smooth, not sour like lemons usually are. I am definitely getting a bit of nutty, buttery pastry. YUM!
I will also have to try this a hot brew!

I had this chilled in the morning, and it was delicious with some of Butiki’s crystal brown sugar added. Really refreshing on a hot summer day!!

drank Watermelon Mint by DAVIDsTEA

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.

Preparation
Iced

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

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
818 tasting notes

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!

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.
