Not too bad. This if the first chocolate tea that I’d say actually tastes chocolatey. A little too sweet for me but I bet it would make a nice evening tea.

drank Sweet Dreams (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I think this is the first tea that I would say I hated. It tasted like a big cup of Mr. Clean and I couldn’t finish it. Down the drain it went.

Alright, so I’m not a kiwi fan so this might not be a fair assessment of this tea but this was shockingly bad. I got about half the cup down and poured the rest out.

  1. of 24. I was very surprised by this tea. I wasn’t expecting much but I enjoyed my cup of tea this morning. Nice walnut flavor and sweet but not too sweet. Nice bit of caffeine kick.

#16. Wow this smells bad. It might just be me but the smell put me off right away and I’m struggling to describe it, maybe clove? Luckily it doesn’t taste anything like it smells. Green tea and mint, that’s it. I thought it was quite boring and didn’t finish the cup.

#14. This didn’t taste like I expected. I was thinking it would have more of a berry flavor but it’s like berry and lemon. This is a favorite of a friend of mine so I was expecting more than I got.

Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

#13. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the name but not bad. To me it smelled like melons, kind of like cantaloupe. Surprisingly it had a melon flavor since that doesn’t seem to be one of the ingredients. It tasted like the white part between the rind and red part of watermelon. I don’t think it will make it into regular rotation but it was enjoyable.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

Tea #12. Seems to taste almost exactly like Sleigh Ride that I had yesterday. I said that Sleigh Ride tasted like liquid apple pie, well this tastes like a cross between apple and pecan pie to me. Overall not quite as good as Sleigh Ride for me so I’m rating it a little lower.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

I’ve been a long time casual tea drinker but I don’t like dealing with infusers, bags, drippy things and factory flavours. I bought a “The Steeper” from David’s Tea and I’ve moved into daily from casual. I’m trying to move outside my black tea box but it’s a long road.
