Because I am braver at trying coffee-flavoured teas, now, LOL.

I like Espresso Yourself better than this one, though I suspect that may have to do with the fact that I had more of a flavour to that one than I had here (less leaves, not steeped as long as it could have been). Also, that ones seems to be a lot less simpler in composition, so there might have been too many flavour profiles wrestling to de domiannt in this. Overall, not terrible, and okay in a pinch.

Day #15 of tea!

Again, I’m keeping my original rating on this one, which, for me, for a plain green is high. I normally like my greens with some flavour to them, but again, I appreciate the taste on this one because it’s slightly different than a regular Japanese green.

I liked this one :). Just managed to grab some in October right before they sold out!

I have a little bit left, as well… Going to be rationing it, LOL

Day #14 of tea!

Keeping my rating on this one, I think! I had my sample steep for longer this time, which was nice, but I definitely got more of a licorice root taste, which was not so nice, LOL. I had to use a bit more milk to mellow that out. Still a yummy chai, and I might try it as a latte.

That's Mint

bleck licorice root :P

Another oldie, but goodie! Keeping my rating for this one the same as before… The taste is exactly as I remember it, and that’s nice to experience on a lazy Sunday. :)

I like this one as a latte :)

raven22

Yesssss. This is delicious in latte form!

I got this as a sample yesterday. I have had it before but not in years. Will have to try it as a latte!

Day #12 of tea!

One of the first teas I ever had from DT, hence the inclusion in the advent. Nostalgia purposes, for sure! I’m lowering my rating slightly on this one, as I don’t think I liked it as much this go around as I did before, haha. Black teas are still my favourite, but I think I made this too sweet and/or there was too much toffee flavour in my cup.

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA

Day #11 of tea!

Another new one for me! The smell on this one was amazing – I do love a good banana nut bread (though preferably also with chocolate, lol).

My biggest beef with this, unfortunately, is that it is very, very heavy – and there wasn’t enough leaf in my 10g sample for two solid cups (vital, since I share the tea of the days with my mother, and she got to this one first). As a result, my cup was a lot weaker than I had hoped for, and I steeped this for a loooooong time. The flavour was good, but weak.

If I were to get this one again, I’d obviously have to buy more to get it to the strength I want, but I don’t know if it would be worth it for the amount of tea I would get. Pity.

Kristal

Agreed with your sentiments. It works well as a latte, but of course that’s quite pricey :/

drank Malawi Twist Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Day #10 of tea!

Hurrah, finally a new one. A plain oolong, at that. I don’t get to have these very often. This one’s good, I have to say. Not my favourite (and I still like plain black teas better), but there’s a bit of a fruity taste with this, which I wasn’t expecting. Of course, it’s limited edition, so I shouldn’t get used to it, haha.

Keeping my rating for this one as is – it tastes just I remembered, haha.

Day #8 of tea!

I’m upping my rating on this one, because I think I steeped it better this time – I had a much more enjoyable cup!

Day #7 of tea!

Again, another one I’ve had recently, but a tummy one, nonetheless – I find this to be a straight black tea of better than average quality, so it’s perfect for me with some milk. My one thing I noticed this time, is to watch the steep time, as I left this one too long this afternoon!
