Well… This sounded really good, though I’d prefer it wasn’t a rooibos tea. It’s a good berry like tea, but the rooibos taste just isn’t for me. Weird because some rooibos teas I can clearly taste it and some I don’t. This is one I taste the rooibos in. Maybe it would be better with some milk added.

drank Banana Matcha by Steeped Tea
316 tasting notes

Started my day with an iced cup of this mixed with DT’s Ceremonial Matcha, with a little milk and agave added. Since both of these matchas don’t have sugar added, it was quite different for me but since I added a little agave it tasted pretty yummy actually. This has a great banana flavour to it. The only other way I’ve had this was in a banana loaf (which didn’t have real bananas, just the matcha) and it was really good as well.

Flavors: banana

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C

Cool that you baked with it too!

Michelle

I haven’t actually baked with it yet, the tea consultant made it for my party, but I plan on baking with it this coming week. :)

This tea sounds super good, but every time I’ve had it, it never lived up to my expectations. So recently I tried it mixed with Frozen Raspberry as an iced latte and it was actually really good that way! Now I need to find more since they’re discontinuing it.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

drank Lady Marmalade by DAVIDsTEA
316 tasting notes

I’m actually not really loving this tea… I’m trying to finish the 50g bag I got. I’ve had it iced and it’s just too jammy for me… Maybe it’s just the fact I don’t care for marmalade. I think it’s better hot, but still not my favourite.

Flavors: Apricot, Jam

Iced 4 min, 0 sec

drank Peachy Lychee by DAVIDsTEA
316 tasting notes

This is a very light peach and somewhat floral tea. I guess the floral taste would be the lychee part of it. I really like this tea iced with some agave… It’s taken me while to actually review this because I wasn’t really sure how to describe it.

Flavors: Floral, Lychee, Peach

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA
316 tasting notes

Having this iced tonight… I used to love this more than I do now, but it’s still good sometimes. It’s mainly the peachy and apple I taste. There seems to be a lot of apple in this blend – but it’s not bad. I like both peach and apple. Another thing about this tea is that it’s enjoyable iced and hot.

Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Peach

drank Strawberry Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA
316 tasting notes

This is definitely my favourite out of the new mini collection. While it is like Electric Lemonade, it’s much better with the nice strawberry flavour and without the citric acid in the blend (which made my tongue hurt) So yeah this is pretty good for me! I really like this one. Will definitely get more!!

Flavors: Citrusy, Strawberry

drank Grapefruit Squeeze by DAVIDsTEA

Another grapefruit tea… I’m not a fan of grapefruit, so thought I’d get this tasting out of the way. It’s definitely better than Grapefruit Granita was. I don’t like grapefruit but if you’re a fan of it, you’d probably really like this tea, it’s very grapefruity. With the bitterness that comes with it as well. I added sugar which makes it more drinkable. I will finish it, but won’t buy it. I only got a small amount to make this iced cup at home. Not bad, but not my cup of tea either.

Flavors: Bitter, Citrusy, Grapefruit

drank Orange Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
316 tasting notes

This one sounded really good, so I got it to go today. It’s not bad, it has a nice orangey taste but it definitely needed sweetener. It also sort of does remind me of orange juice. Orange juice with a slight passion fruit flavour. I like it, but it’s not a huge favourite.

Flavors: Orange, Passion Fruit

Iced

All I can think of when I drink this one is Five Alive :P

Michelle

^ Very accurate!

Fjellrev

Oh Five Alive, that takes me back.

Bio

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.
