17 Tasting Notes
LOVE this tea. It’s a great holiday fave. If you haven’t gotten the chance to already, I recommend trying DT’s version of the Eggnog latte WITH eggnog. O M G. It’s divine. Having it in latte form with regular milk is just as good too, but having real eggnog in it, is great as well. Don’t forget the cinnamon on top ;)
Flavors: Cinnamon, Eggnog, Nutmeg
Tried this tea in-store, iced, and purchased 50g of it right away. I’m a little apprehensive of cherry-flavored things, but the smell and taste of this tea blew me away. The cherry flavor is not too artificial, which is something I like (as compared to something like Cherry Blossom).
Flavors: Cherry, Sweet
Root beer is definitely one of my favorite pops, so when this came out as part of their summer collection last year, I was excited to try it. Upon first smelling it, it reminded me of those Sodalicious gummy candies I had as a kid. Either way, I couldn’t believe how close this blend is to the real deal. The great thing about it is that you can control the amount of sugar you put in it, plus you can create it as a tea “pop”, and it’ll still be a more healthy alternative to the sugary drink. I definitely recommend it if you love root beer (:
Flavors: Root Beer
This had to have been my favorite spring tea, this year. I prefer it hot, but it’s still just as good, cold. I have gone through a lot of this tea this year and have kept a stash to last me for the upcoming colder months. It has a very nice, floral and sweet aroma and is naturally sweet.
Flavors: Floral, Sweet
This tea is fantastic. I enjoy it iced and have bringing it to work we me, every day this week. It’s sweet on its own, but I do like to add a little bit of vanilla agave to it, to enhance the sweet, fruit flavors. Who knew that dragonfruit would make for a great flavor for tea?
Flavors: Fruity, Sweet
I first tried this tea back in February (I believe), so I had it hot. Loved it. I tried it again this summer, iced and I wasn’t a fan. I would definitely stick to having it warm, in my opinion. It’s not exactly my go-to tea either, however, but it’s a nice treat. I find it reminiscent of the red/cherry lollipops you get on halloween.
Flavors: Cherry, Sugar, Sweet
Admittingly, this tea wins as the best pumpkin tea from DT. I’m a huge lover of all things pumpkin, and even DT’s Pumpkin Chai, but there’s something about Pumpkin Cheesecake that takes the win. It might just be because it’s rooibos, making it caffeine free (win!) or even the sweet hints of white chocolate, but the combination of everything just makes it smooth and a little less spicy than Pumpkin Chai. I would definitely recommend this and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll bring it back this fall. I also recommend adding some milk too.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Pumpkin, White Chocolate
I absolutely love this tea! I even made sure to hoard a whole bunch of it as well since it’s quick to finish because of how big the pieces in the mix are. It smells delightful and as a fan of banana-flavored things (let alone banana bread !!!), this was an instant hit for me. I definitely enjoy it hot/warm and sometimes I’ll add a bit of milk to it for extra flavor. If you’re a fan of banana-flavored or baked goods tea, I would definitely recommend.
Flavors: Bread, Dates, Raisins
This tea was disappointing to me. It smelled fantastic at first, but I found it a bit too sour, if that makes sense. I can taste more of a granny smith apple taste, which is not my favorite. I do like how it is kind of cidery, but after having a cup or 2, this tea is still just sitting in my cupboard, untouched.
