This tea was a wild ride.

It smells exactly like shortbread. Hot, it tastes just like a buttered popcorn jelly belly. As it starts to cool, the tart element overrides the sweet.

I kept drinking it not because I liked it but because it was so odd. I wouldn’t repurchase, but it was an interesting experience!

DavidsTea Advent Day 7. I’m going to be lucky to finish all three tea advents by the end of January.

The coffee is strong in this one, with a sweetness I generally don’t prefer but feel like works well for the tea. I’m not a big fan of vanilla and this artificial version doesn’t much help. I could brew it and just smell it all day, if nothing else.

Davids Tea Matcha Advent Day 12.

This was pleasant but nothing memorable. Mostly a light matcha with ginger at the end, especially after adding milk (the ginger seemed stronger before). I was excited for some real spices of gingerbread but didn’t feel like they came through.

Sounded lovely for a cold brew, which apparently diminishes the “magik” color powers of the tea, as it was a bright and bold green instead (and the lemonade added only diluted the color). Pleasant citrus flavor but too mild to be memorable for much outside the color.

I’m not sure what’s going on with this tea. It brewed so weak at first I added more. It smells like an overly sweet baked gingerbread, but the taste is more of a tart fruit covered in sugar with a hit of spicy ginger at the end. The gingerbread sprinkles were adorable, at least?

This was fun! Mostly chocolate with just a hint of spice, a great blend hot that’s still tasty when it settles to room temp. Adding this to my shopping list.

Flavors: Chocolate, Spicy

David’s Tea Matcha Advent Day 10.

Almost got this froth right!

I got a little bit of a fruity scent from the tea, but I couldn’t taste raspberry at all (or any berry, actually) with or without the milk. It was a pleasant enough sweet matcha, but I wouldn’t call it raspberry.

Frothing seems to get better day by day but I’m really at a loss for new tricks to try, so maybe I’m just doomed to a frothless matcha.

I struggled to identify the flavors in this one; after adding milk the only flavor that comes to mind is creamy and I wonder if that’s the tea or the milk. It’s tasty though.

We’re getting somewhere with this foam, I think.

This was delicious. While sipping it was lightly flavored, but the aftertaste was a strong maple syrup. I was worried it would be cloying but I found it less sweet than expected (maybe my bar is still off from the weird fake berry/fruit palate happening in earlier picks). This would be worth buying more.

I was putting this one off because I disliked the berries and cream so much due to artificial blueberry – this didn’t bode well. But honestly this wasn’t bad! Definitely got a hint of grass and sugar with a bitter aftertaste. I could drink this even if I wouldn’t buy it.

Flavors: Grass, Sugar
