drank Sweet Lime by DAVIDsTEA
26 tasting notes

The lime flavor seems to sink to the bottom, making the dregs of the tea unpleasantly intense and sour, but if you stir it properly it’s a nice light flavor. Very summery, good iced. I will say though that you can’t taste the mango at all.

Flavors: Lime, Pleasantly Sour

drank Apple Chai by TeaSource
26 tasting notes

Tastes like fake green apple flavoring, strongly reminiscent of those tiny spherical lollipops that teachers, doctors, and hairdressers use to bribe children to behave, or a Jolly Rancher, or whatever other kind of cheap green-apple-flavored hard candy you prefer. The chai spice is hardly noticeable by comparison. Couldn’t they just have used apple pieces? Sure, that won’t make the tea taste very appley, but there must be a better way than using very artificial-tasting artificial flavoring. I mean, I knew it was flavored, of course, but most fruit teas are and it’s not usually that candy-like.

Flavors: Artificial, Cinnamon

drank Cherry Green by Maya Tea

Found this while looking for a cherry green without rose petals, which was harder to find than I expected. I like the safflower in this; it’s less perfumey and overbearing than the rose, but still provides some balance for the cherry, which can itself be an overpowering flavor. I also like that it uses actual cherries and not just flavoring.

Flavors: Flowers, Fruity

Haven’t tried this yet, but I’m a little dubious, because when I sniff it all I can smell is safflower.

drank Spiced Chai by Trader Joe's

It’s a grocery store brand, so, you know, calibrate your expectations accordingly, but it’s the best grocery store chai I’ve found yet, with a nicely balanced mix of spices.

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve found this very effective for sore throats, but don’t enjoy the flavor enough to drink it when I’m not sick. It’s not terrible, but there’s something a bit medicinal about it.

Flavors: Herbs, Medicinal

drank African Autumn by Harney & Sons

It’s odd to me that the prevailing opinion on this tea seems to be that it tastes overpoweringly like artificial orange flavoring. I haven’t found this to be the case; in fact, I feel the cranberry and rooibos flavors overwhelm the orange. This does make for a tea that’s quite sour and astringent, so I’ve found it’s a bit too much for some people, even when sweetened.

Flavors: Astringent, Cranberry, Rooibos, Sour

drank Fig Rose by Teavana

One of the better Teavana teas. I miss it and am sad that the only company that seems to do a fig rose tea currently is based in New Zealand and I am not, so the shipping costs are through the roof.
