The taste is definitely banana. It was pleasant up until the last little bit, which was bitter. If I were to pick a banana tea to drink, I’d likely pick one with a green base instead. Definitely fun though.

And I forgot to mention again that this is from my swap with Cameron B!

Surprisingly fruity. The spices are definitely more muted than I’d expect. It’s not bad, it’s just not at all what I was looking for.

Finally finishing last year’s Christmas sampler from David’s. The teas came in the cutest wreath packaging. When I first tried this, I liked it, but this time, I felt pretty unimpressed. I added milk, sugar, and vanilla to make it tastier. I really enjoyed the Teavana Earl Grey Cream, and I wish I liked this as much. It’s pretty bland. Maybe it’s just how I prepared it this time though.

I like the idea of Earl Grey Cream teas, but I’ve never found one that I’ve liked… :P

AJRimmer

Definitely let me know if you find a winner. I’m yet to find an adequate replacement!

Cameron B.

It looks like you can still get Teavana’s Earl Grey Crème in sachets. So if that’s your favorite, you might look around for them. It looks like Walmart carries them.

Ohhh that’s good to know, thanks! To be honest, I’m a little worried I won’t like it as much as I did originally. I hate when I retry a tea I’d loved and it turns out to not be how I remembered. Hopefully this will be different!

Smells like pastries/bread. Tastes like marzipan. The base is pretty weak, but I’m just here for the almond, so I don’t mind. No bitterness, but I also used a pretty low water temperature. I like this one.

drank Hugs and Kisses by Adagio Teas

I drink some kind of Adagio rooibos every day, and this is what I have currently, so I’ve been drinking a lot of it. I definitely wish it were offered in a smaller size because I wouldn’t have wanted four ounces of this one. It looks pretty, but it tastes almost like plain rooibos. I would have liked to taste the other flavors more. Certainly not bad, but I wouldn’t choose it over other options.

My favorite tea. I’ve received it in several swaps, but am waiting for it to go on sale so I can buy a truly giant bag for myself. Almond is my favorite flavor, and here it’s so light and sweet. The best.

The flavors go so well together. I add a bit of sugar because…I add sugar to all my teas! So it’s a pleasantly sweet and spicy combination. I’ll be sad when this one is gone, but I don’t know if I’d order again at its current price. I’d be more likely to try to make my own. I’ve got some dried sage leaves, so I’m partway there!

Cameron B.

Hmm… I’d never even heard of this company. They have some interesting-sounding teas.

Cameron B.

I now have several samples on their way to me! ;)

AJRimmer

I’ve really enjoyed 4/5 teas that I’ve tried from them, and I have two more that I haven’t opened yet. Capri is probably my favorite other than Cocteau, which was discontinued. I’ll be interested to see what you think of their teas! Their marketing and flavor combos definitely intrigue me.

Cameron B.

I got mostly black teas. They definitely sound intriguing! Love the samples sizes and free shipping. I would like to see more oolongs and some white teas.

Yummy citrus flavor. Not sour or bitter. I also didn’t need to over-leaf it like some fruit teas require. I feel like I’d drink this fairly regularly if I had more!

Another from my exchange with Cameron B.

drank Tower of London by Harney & Sons

I guess I’m used to drinking Decaf Paris, so this tastes pretty standard in comparison. I added some milk and sugar, and it was tasty, but I wouldn’t choose this over other earl greys I have in my cupboard.

Bio

I have an office job, but when I’m not there, I like to spend most of my time with my family. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, taking walks, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my cats.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, green rooibos blends.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
