I really, really enjoy this tea! I love green teas that are floral and fruity and this really hits the spot. Probably one of two teas from Dollar Tea Club out of all the teas I’ve tasted so far that I would actually repurchase.

Pineapple comes through really strongly and is v. sweet, strawberry tends to be more of a base and more acidic in flavour. c:

drank Sunny Buoy by Dollar Tea Club

I don’t really know if I can recommend this tea or not. Because of the chunky pieces of fruit, the sample I got was really small, so I didn’t really get a taste for it. I had to bulk it out with some hibiscus tea to make a pot of iced tea. :c

Flavors: Hibiscus, Pineapple

I was really pleasantly surprised by this tea. I usually don’t like tea with chocolate in it but this one was really nice and soft. The oolong gave it a lovely depth but the white tea kept it light at the same time.

It is a really sweet tea but I’d love to have it again.

drank Peach Ginger by Bulk Barn
67 tasting notes

I really like Bulk Barn’s teas, I’ve had a few really pleasant surprises from there and so when they came out with a new selection, I was really excited and purchased a couple.

Peach Ginger Black Tea sounded like the perfect tea for me. I love sweet black teas that are a little spicy, but not necessarily chais.

And I find it a little disappointing. I really like the body of the tea and it smells great, but the peach flavour just gives it a funny aftertaste. It feels artificial and almost like a cordial aftertaste, so that just ruins the whole tea for me.

I still find it drinkable, but it’s a disappointing one for sure and I won’t be purchasing it again.

Flavors: Flowers, Ginger, Peach

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 300 OZ / 8872 ML

drank Ginger Kiss by The Tea Centre
67 tasting notes

This is one of my favourite ginger teas. Depending on how much rosella you have in your strainer, it leaves the cup absolutely bright pink.

I love this tea because it has more depth than a regular ginger tea. I usually drink ginger teas if I have an upset stomach, and a lot of bagged ginger teas can taste pretty medicinal or flat.

This tea has lots of depth due to the citrus-y lemongrass and the rosella makes it really tangy.

I’ll have to buy some from Australia when I’m there next. c:

Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass, Tangy

This tea is great for an afternoon type tea, if you like black teas in the afternoon. Somehow, it doesn’t feel super caffeinated or feel heavy on the tannin or acidity so it feels more mellow than most black teas, which I think is true of oolong.

This has a lovely mango / coconut flavour combination and tastes as good as it smells while brewing. I tend to put this at the back of the cupboard, but I should bring it to the front more.

Flavors: Coconut, Mango, Sweet

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

I’m rating this so highly because it was a pure surprise for me. I’m not usually a fan of green tea but I love lavender and this tea tastes so good.

The lavender comes through really strongly and balances well with the softer, more mellow green tea. It’s really layered and totally a hidden gem. This is a lovely floral tea and a total staple in my cupboard. It’s one of my favourite green teas.

Flavors: Fruity, Green, Lavender

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
67 tasting notes

As far as medicinal teas go, this one is really drinkable. I tend to have it if I have a sore throat or a cold and really enjoy it, even if I’m unwell, which can change your palette.

There’s lots of minty, eucalyptus, citrus-y type flavours, and while the juniper berries don’t do much other than smell nice, they do give the tea an aniseed undertone that’s very nice.

I like how fragrant this tea is and how it’s hard to over-steep. Lovely on a cold day when you’re feeling a bit run down.

Flavors: Anise, Eucalyptus, Mint, Orange

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

drank Caramel by Mariage Frères
67 tasting notes

I love this tea, like I do with most of the tea from Mariage Freres. It steeps really well and has a beautiful, simple, bold taste with plenty of undertones of caramel, chocolate and vanilla.

I’m not normally a fan of chocolate in tea but in this case, the tea is so smooth that it doesn’t get bitterness that sometimes comes with chocolate in tea.

I think the Highland Toffee Tea from David’s Tea would act as a really good dupe for this tea, and since Highland Toffee Tea is one of my favourites, it’s easy to see why I love this one.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

This tea is powerful and spicy, like a chai or a glögg tea.

It has flavours of mulled wine, cinnamon, cardamom, almond and other Christmassy things. I love drinking it in the winter time and although it wasn’t my favourite tea from this company to begin with, it’s totally become a fast favourite.

Whenever I open my tea cupboard, I can smell it right away. It’s spicy and sweet and definitely packs a punch. <3
