drank African Solstice by Tea Forte
32 tasting notes

I love this tea. This is probably the first tea my sister had me drink when she started to becoming obsessed (see jump62359, she’s here!). Anyway, this tea is years old and it probably isn’t as strong as it should be but I still love it. I just finished the last of my sample and I am pretty upset about it. Does Tea Forte still make this? If they do, I gotta stock up! LOVE IT.

This is my go to Jasmine tea. Nothing too special about it. It tastes like Jasmine but nothing extravagant. It’s my cheap-and-want-to-chug-jasmine-tea-now kind of tea. I double steep my tea BUT I mix it. I put it all in a 20 oz insulated water bottle so I can sip it hot/warm within an hour or two. I always double steep my tea but mix it all together and that is what I did here.

My sister (jump62359 – go find her she’s great and she got me into tea) gave me a little sample of this tea like… years ago. So it’s probably not good anymore but I’m still drinking it. I think I should have brewed it a little longer. The jasmine taste is so mild. It’s still good but not as strong as I hoped.

drank Elderflower Spritz by DAVIDsTEA
32 tasting notes

I needed a little pickme up and this was perfect. I don’t generally like floral-y teas but I like this. It is light and the perfect amount of caffeine. Not much else to report here, just that I like it, I would recommend it hot (I can’t imagine it tasting very delicious cold).

NOTE TO SELF: If you need a pick me up, feeling down, sad, or the weather is bringing you down, drink this.

I LOVE this tea.
I went to my first tea house everrrr with my mom and sister in San Francisco. I had such a great time and we are all rarely together and it was just so special. It is the first gong fu style tea I’ve had also. My mom and I shared this jasmine tea and nom! It is so fragrant and definitely the most delicious jasmine tea I have EVER had.

We bought a 2 oz pack and I ordered myself a gaiwan tea set and I am drinking this as we speak. It is far too strong but I think I am just brewing it for too long. I definitely need to test it out. Right now I’ve been doing the suggested 1 minute but it’s definitely too long. I am going on my third steep so I will bring the time down. I have just been watering it down because it is too bitter. Im sure this is like against all tea laws but I did it anyway.

If you are in the San Francisco, go to Asha! I think they also have a place in Berkeley.

To be honest, I am trying to get through my tea stash to buy more tea. I am pretty sure I received this along with a few others as a trial or a sampler. I don’t remember how or why but I have a couple others.

PROS
- I love that it’s caffeine-free as herbal teas are which make it perfect for night time. Caffeine really affects me so drinking anything with caffeine ever 3pm will keep me up all night.
- It’s organic! Also certified by another source which is a huge plus .
- Packaging is compostable! Love it.

TASTE
It tastes like lemongrass… There isn’t really anything else I need to mention about this tea. It’s yummy but it’s not extraordinary. I like it but I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it again.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
32 tasting notes

I am going to be honest, I thought I was going to hate this tea. I just didn’t like the idea of tasting nuts in my tea. When I steeped it, a surprising pink color was waving around it the water! I love pink tea (lol). I thought it was going to taste more cinnamon-y since that is what I smelled but it is just nutty. I actually ended up liking it more since I had very low expectations for it. Such a wonderful surprise!

Now this is a black tea that I can do. I loveeee it! The tastes are so perfectly sweet. It is definitely nutty but also with a hint of coconut (I think?). It tastes as good as it smells. I have enough for three drinks but I think I am going to have to get a bag of this stuff. NOM.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA

It has a slight taste of chocolate and orange. I added some almond milk to it. Like before, I am just not a fan of black tea. This one isn’t an exception. I just drank it because I had a three steep sample of it. I had it iced too, I will try it hot next time to see if I like it more.

Ohmygosh. This is so amazing! I received this as part of a sampler and it is my absolute favorite. I love mint tea and I looooovvvveee rooibos. Adding the two together and adding chocolate is the best idea ever. I have to get myself a bag of this because it’s so delish.
