drank Mango Madness by DAVIDsTEA

My sister came over for tea and chose this one to try, time to boil the water!

First steep: Not bad, not bad at all. Not entirely mango, but not all that far away. I will admit it would be really hard-pressed to recreate the flavour of a mango in a tea, but this one doesn’t do too badly. It`s fruity at first with the white tea lingering afterwards.

Second steep: Slightly weaker, but still satisfying. We got two pots out of this which isn’t bad at all!

drank The Skinny (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Smells strongly of ginger, let’s hope it soothes my throat a little.

First steep: I find I have a really hard time even motivating myself to drink this, but today my throat is hoarse and my taste buds are off. I suppose, that might be the only way I can tolerate this tea… I have to be ill.

Second steep: Upping the rating slightly… the flavours blend together a bit more with this steep, which makes the overall cup much more pleasant.

I can’t really rate this because I used it in a recipe for chai hot chocolate, but used in the recipe it was delicious! If you’re ever making anything chocolatey that needs a kick of cinnamon, this is the tea for just that.

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA

The smell that wafts out of the bag is definitely pink lemonade—erm goji berry lemonade?

Hot: I am not really a fan of this tea. It reminds me too much of the sick-days as a kid, when my dad would make me a hot lemonade to soothe my throat. The only difference is that I could make one of those for pennies (hot water + lemon wedge + honey = my dad’s hot lemonade) as opposed to this which is a bit pricier.

Cold: For obvious reasons (it smelled like pink lemonade) I have been brewing this double-strength in the refrigerator, and what a difference it makes! Add a splash of lemon and agave and it’s almost identical to that quintessential summer beverage, only better for you (I would assume, being lower in sugar and calories). Not sure I will re-stock once it’s gone though, seems like something I would only drink in the summertime.

Has a smell reminiscent of… cough drops?

When I bought this the sales ladies couldn’t agree on which was better: Green & Fruity or Raspberry Nectar. So, I bought both. I tried to like this one, I really did, but it just always seems to come out tasting medicinal and not like tea at all. I have tried it both hot and iced, and the only way I can tolerate it at all is when it is iced, but I still don’t really enjoy it. So, what am I supposed to do with the rest of the bag?

Le sigh.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
