This was a winner for me … Mostly because I love berries in tea. (Too bad it got the distracted sipping, work tea treatment.)

Decent work tea. The bananas we’re definitely noticeable, but this tea was (surprisingly) not very sweet. It was okay, but I probably wouldn’t repurchase.

I don’t know what I was thinking. This smelled so good in the store – nutty, sweet, kind of like a slightly savory brittle – that I bought it, only for it to be totally disgusting when steeped. I don’t even know how to describe it, but something close to boiled peanuts and granola would have it. Shame on me for not getting a smaller amount to try before committing to 2oz.

Sipdown.

This was good – heavy on the cinnamon/baked goods vibes with some nondescript fruit sweetness in the background. Not sure it lives up to the name, but it was enjoyable.

Nondescript fruity black tea. Stronger than the ones I usually bring to work.

Really enjoyed the cinnamon in this one, but it was otherwise a basic chai.

Not bad! The brittle lends a subtle sweetness to this otherwise light tea.

A sad sipdown. This has been a consistently tasty all day tea. See, I’ve found that when I’m home I tend not to drink tea, which is kind of sad. So I’ve started making up large pots and working on them throughout the day when I’m off. I’m happier, there are no more caffeine withdrawal headaches, but unfortunately this leads to sipping down teas I really like. (Because if you’re going to make 1300ml of tea in one go, it had better be something you enjoy drinking.)

So, today is my last day with this one. Creamy and sweet with a hint of tartness from the blueberries. I wouldn’t say it screams “blueberry muffin” because the fruit flavor is a little generic for that, but it’s nice to sip on all day long.

Love the smell of this one since its all coffee and chocolate. The taste? Not so much. It’s kind of like a watered down version of black coffee and I’m not big on coffee with no additives to begin with.

Very floral at first, but it settles out into a nice fruity and floral balance. Probably not something I’d purchase more of, but it was good while I had it.

Bio

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
