Tart, light, and fruity hibiscus and apple are at the core of this tea. Cinnamon adds a warm heart, and the popcorn gives the tea body and a silky mouthfeel. This tea is warm, delicious, and full of holiday spirit.

To those who find it too tart I say- bah, humbug!

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Hibiscus

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA

For me, someone who loves coffee, this was a terrible substitute. For the tea lover in me, I was sorely disappointed as well. Weak yet bitter, the almond did nothing for it either.

The pu’erh’s strong flavours were done a disservice by the bitter, yet bland and water-y, coffee flavouring. The almond flavouring did nothing for me either.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Light, bright, clean black tea that doesn’t need milk or sugar to make it a delicious treat (and I almost always add milk and sugar to my black teas so this is really something).

This tea has a warm orangey-brown liquor, and powdery smell like rocket candies and pineapple when brewed. The tea has citrusy sweet notes, but they float on top of the strong base of a delicious blend of refined black teas that lack any bitter astringency, a smooth and sippable charm I’ve found in Ladureé’s Jardin Bleu and Ladurée blends as well.

Flavors: Citrusy, Dark Wood, Pineapple

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

The tea that made me fall in love with tea, and Paris. Sweet strawberries and cream, this black tea truly lights up with the addition of milk and a little sugar. If you want to feel like a princess, this blend is it.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Strawberry

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 5 OZ / 150 ML
