So, I combined Wild Cherry and Strawberry Kiwi from Citizen Tea as I only had one spoonful of each and I knew that I wouldn’t drink these hot.

I’m finding the cherry is definitely overtaking the strawberry. I’m getting little bit of strawberry but not a whole lot… which is okay I guess… probably wouldn’t combine these again…

I quite enjoyed this one! I like the mix of chocolate and hazelnut. I have a hazelnut agave here at home, so I would probably add it to the tea and make the nuttiness come out more. Also, I’m planning on trying this one as a latte next ’cause I know it would be delicious! Yummmm!

I didn’t find it all that hazelnutty, not as much as I’d hoped for anyhow. I think it’d do well as a latte with some kind of nut milk (all I have is almond but it might do!)

that sounds good!

This one is so much better when it’s fresh. My sample amount that I had left wasn’t fresh and I could tell. The flavours weren’t very good anymore. I was very disappointed with the iced tea I made last night as it didn’t really have any good flavour… I ended up tossing what was left of my sample….
Another tea that I shouldn’t have hoarded. I think with this one I just kind of forgot I even had it, so it sat around and wasn’t enjoyed… It’s too bad.

I’ll keep that in mind – I think I still have a packet left over from the summer.

TheKesser

Yeah it might have just been my sample, but I was pretty disappointed by this one..

I threw the rest of what I had into my steeper and made it an extra strong iced tea… but I think time has really effected this one as it didn’t taste all that great. I ended up tossing what I had made. Something just seemed off….
Stop hoarding tea! A lot of it can’t handle it! haha

I never thought I’d like this one, but it is so good! I love this one iced. For some reason, the lemon and mint work so well. I love the lemony part of this one. Anyways, haven’t tried this one hot yet, but iced is so delicious.

Very nice strawberry flavour to this, but it does have a slight hint of floral and a bit of tartness from the hibiscus. If it weren’t for the hibiscus I think I would have been a bit more in love with this one. Oh well… It’s not for me, but so be it…

Wow does this ever taste like the Teaopia blend! I use to drink this one hot, but today I thought I’d do it cold.

It’s pretty good. I probably could have let it steep a bit longer than the 5 minutes I did, but that’s okay. This one has a nice fruitiness to it, but it also has some floral from the rosehips. Because of that floral, I’m not sure if I’d get this one again. But it was nice to try this blend.

drank Spa Day by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is so yummy but I think my body doesn’t care for it. I found out several years ago that I’m allergic to grass and I have never gotten a good answer from anyone as to whether or not lemongrass is considered a grass same as like the grass outside that causes allergies.
Anyways, today I made this iced and my son seemed to enjoy it, but I found as I was drinking it I was starting to get a wicked headache. I switched and started drinking my blueberry latte instead and the headache pain is fading/almost gone. So, I don’t know if that means that I’m allergic or if it’s just one of those weird coincidences… Now I don’t know if I should keep it and try again or get rid of it…

I hate that. To experiment and risk a headache… or forgo a tea that you “may” have been able to drink. A friend gave me grapefruit oil to flavour my water with, and I’m experiencing that exact same debate. Delicious… but did it cause my headache?? :/

I only had two perfect spoons of this one so I made a small latte with it as I didn’t want to drink it as just a regular tea.

It turned out pretty good actually. I’m actually kind of glad that I didn’t make it any stronger. It was a nice blueberry flavour without being overpowering and the base didn’t get too strong or overpowering either. I do appreciate how this one has real blueberries in it too as some of the other blueberry teas that I have tried have not had real berries in it and just flavouring.

So, either way, I quite enjoyed this tea. It was better than I remember it being before. Maybe as a latte helped?

Made an iced tea today with this one but I have to say, I don’t love this tea. I was getting some crazy floral taste to it, which doesn’t make too much sense to me, but yeah… So anyways, I didn’t enjoy this one that much. Maybe the amount I had was getting old? It probably was… Maybe a fresh sample would be better to try to really know how I feel about it, but this time I was kind of over it.

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
