drank Peppermint Matcha by Steeped Tea

My friend gave me 25g of this to try out and man, is it ever minty! I like some mint but not this much! Haha, so I mixed a little ceremonial matcha into it, as well as a little sugar, and made it as a latte. Not too bad. Just wouldn’t get any more. And next time I make it, I’ll definitely use LESS matcha!

Flavors: Mint, Peppermint

drank Ginger Peach by Earth Teaze
282 tasting notes

I’ve had this sample for a while, and finally got around to trying it tonight. This tea is very ginger heavy. That’s the first thing I noticed upon tasting it. After it cooled down a bit I could taste more of the peach. I’d definitely drink it again if I had more. Pretty good!

Flavors: Ginger, Peach

This is a nice fruity black tea. Quite flavorful. I think the peach is the most noticeable. Other than the black tea of course. I think I am getting a little bit of the cranberry as an aftertaste. I added a little sugar to bring out the fruity notes, but it’s a pretty good tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Peach

drank Vanilla Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

Finally decided to try this matcha. I’ve been on a matcha obsession lately. So today I’m starting my day with hot vanilla matcha latte! Surprisingly its not that sweet. I did notice it has none of that ‘cane sugar’ in it, so thats always good. It’s got a hint of vanilla, but also a creamy and grassy note to it. I don’t mind it at all. I’m also glad I don’t taste the coconut nectar in it. Overall I like this matcha. It’s a nice one to enjoy hot!

Flavors: Creamy, Grass, Vanilla

Okay so I was saving this teabag for a special time so I could try & review it. Then my mom assumes that the box I put it in was my dads tea so she makes him a cup of it without asking. I’ll be honest I’m a little bit peeved. But luckily she didn’t throw the bag out so I am having a cup of it steeped a second time. I obviously let it sit longer than I usually would. But I have to say, it’s pretty good! I wasn’t planning on having it tonight, but I didn’t really have much choice. I’m glad I did, though. I’m really tasting the chocolate in this the most. It’s almost like a distinct dark chocolate taste. The mint comes in second, which I don’t mind at all. I really hope I can find this in a grocery store somewhere, cause I would definitely drink it again.

I was in the mood for something peach so I figured I would try this… Disappointed to find out its just artificial flavouring and green tea. Which would be why this doesn’t taste like peach. All I taste is the green tea and something artificial. I also don’t know why they’d tell me to steep it with boiling water.. ITS A GREEN TEA. I used 95 degree water and it still tastes somewhat bitter.

Now that this tea has come back, I’m drinking my tin full I stocked up on in April. I’m trying that ‘chocolate creme brulee’ latte. This time I made it with 4 PS instead of 2 and frothed my milk with the chocolate agave. It’s actually so much yummier than the first attempt at making this recipe. I now see why they recommend using 4 PS… It’s just so much tea. Haha, anyway, it’s really yummy I have to say. Better than on it’s own. This is probably my new go to for having this tea! Besides straight up with sugar. The chocolate adds a nice touch of sweetness to the jasmine and creme brulee tastes.

Flavors: Jasmine, Sweet

drank Gaba Guava by DAVIDsTEA
282 tasting notes

This tea smells amazing! And although it has coconut in it, I don’t care cause it just smells so good. I’m trying it hot first and its really quite good. I don’t really know what guava tastes like but I assume that’s one of the fruits I am tasting. Also, I didn’t like Guava Cadabra at all so I’m pleasantly surprised I like this one, cause I was hoping I would. I can’t say I don’t taste a little bit of coconut though, it isn’t overwhelming. Other than that I like the fruitiness to this tea. I assume it would be a refreshing iced tea as well!

Flavors: Coconut, Fruity, Guava

drank French Vanilla Chai by Twinings
282 tasting notes

I was away for the weekend, and this is one of the teas they had where I was, so I gave it a try. French Vanilla Chai? That sounded interesting. But I don’t really like vanilla so it was just okay for me. I also added honey cause I couldn’t find any sugar. I think I was also tasting the cardamom, which was also a downside for me. Won’t be having it again, but it was drinkable.

Flavors: Cardamon, Spices, Vanilla

So, I found a sample from Ost that I hadn’t tried yet and it’s pretty good – though I feel like it would’ve been better if it was fresher. I had to add sugar to bring out the maple flavour more, but other than that I taste the oolong, which has a creamy milk note to it, almost like quangzhou… Also a slight vegetal taste, but overall its a nice maple tea !

Flavors: Creamy, Maple, Vegetal

Hi, I’m Michelle and I am pretty much obsessed with tea. Some people say I have a problem. I mostly drink DavidsTea – but I am open to trying other ones too.

Things I LOVE in tea:
-Fruits (especially peach, melon, strawberry, banana, berries etc)
-Chocolate
-Lemongrass
-Cinnamon

Things I don’t MIND in tea:
-Stevia
-Vanilla
-Pineapple
—Mint & Peppermint

Things/ingredients I HATE in tea:
-Coconut (Rare exceptions)
-Nuts (Some exceptions)
-Caramel/toffee
-Earl Grey (Bergamot)
-Rice/fennel
-Coffee beans
-Bamboo
-Lavender

I am quite picky with my teas. If the primary ingredients are mixed with something I don’t tend to like – I will try it and its possible I’ll like it. But if the tea is mostly/primarily something I hate – I won’t even try it.
I mostly like Herbals, Green, Oolong, White and Black teas.
