So this was tea #3 to test of the day (I just received an order from DAVIDsTEA, had to try a bunch of them!). It was right before bed, so loved that there was no caffeine in it!

The dry smell was a lot more lemony than I expected, at first was a bit wary, as I’m not a huge fan of zesty lemon tea. However, as soon as I started steeping it, my worries subsided. The smell was a beautiful honey scent with a small hint of lemon and a bit of ginger.

As for the taste, LOVE. So smooth and light yet sweet…this was my second time trying a honeybush tea (the other one was a rooibos-honeybush blend, a lot more potent rooibos taste obv) and I was VERY IMPRESSED. As the tea cooled the ginger taste came out a bit more, and I am a ginger nut, so this was awesome! The lemon was quite muted in my opinion, but still there.

Overall, I LOVE IT. Will probably drink it most days of the week, especially before bed.

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
