I received this tea from my friend for my birthday. With a name like “Flower Heaven”, I thought it would be a good night time tea. The flavour is lovely! All lavender and chamomile but lavender is the predominant flavour. It’s very floral without going overboard. It really is a perfect tea for sipping in the evening before bed. I really do love the lavender in here. It dances on the tongue and makes for a delightful cup. A simple tea but I love it!

Not a bad green tea. Very “vegetal” tasting which I don’t mind. No bitterness which I always appreciate. I would buy this one again. Tastes like a decent quality green tea, especially for a brand that you can get at the grocery store.

Flavors: Green, Vegetal

I love Stash Tea Company. They haven’t disappointed me yet. Their Organic Earl Grey Black and Green Tea is wonderful!

I reviewed this one as a favourite. Using two tea bags, it makes for a super high quality tea. Delicious!

Teatotaler, I really like Stash too! They have some really good teas!

MrQuackers, I agree, it does taste like a high quality tea. I’m having a cup right now!

drank Honey Lemon by Tim Hortons
503 tasting notes

I have a soft spot for this tea. My Grandmother used to take me to Tim Horton’s and always asked me if I wanted a Honey Lemon Tea or a French Vanilla Cappuccino and a doughnut. So every time I drink this tea, I think about her and our trips to Tim Horton’s. Just for that reason alone, this tea is comforting for me. Even just the thought of it is comforting. It’s all about the memories but I do genuinely like this tea, even if there were no other attachments to it. Lemony, sweet and soothing. A nice herbal option for the evenings when I don’t want to overload on caffeine. My Grandmother passed away in 2011 but I still can’t drink this tea without thinking of her and the times we spent at Tim Horton’s together. I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything.

Flavors: Lemon, Sweet

How wonderful to have such precious memories.

Thank-you Maddy. She was a wonderful person. I miss her very much but am grateful I got to have her for as long as I did.

What a lovely story!! I miss Timmies ( now living in the States) and have so many good Family memories there too. I don’t think I’ve ever tried their teas though. I’m pretty basic – a double double and a maple cream donut :) Been back for a visit since the the takeover/ changeover and it’s not the same sadly. Your grandmother sounds wonderful.

Amie, she was a beautiful person and she loved her family fiercely. Her children and grand children were everything to her. She died of lung/bone cancer and it was extremely difficult to lose her at only 73. I miss her terribly and think of her all the time. I hold my memories of her close to my heart.

A straightforward, simple and uncomplicated peppermint tea. I’ve never had a peppermint tea that I didn’t like. Comfort in a cup!

This is the strangest tea I’ve had, to date. First the good; There are no preservatives, no artificial flavourings, no colouring or other additives and it’s non-GMO. This tea is fairly simple with only two ingredients, organic pineapple and organic ming aralia. Now the not so good; the taste! It’s not that it tastes terrible, it just tastes very odd, courtesy of the ming aralia, which tastes like exactly what it is, a shrub! Off putting. I can taste the pineapple and it does taste natural and sweet but the flavour seems to sit at the bottom of the cup with the bag so it needs a good stirring before you drink it. I got through my first cup and admittedly, did not enjoy it so when I did a re-steep, I added some frozen pineapple chunks I had in my freezer to make the tea more bearable. I’m sure some people would appreciate this tea but it’s definitely not for me and I would never buy it again. Luckily, I have a big bag of frozen pineapple chunks which I will add to this tea every time I drink it so I can get through the box. I’ve rated it a 50 due to the fact that it does have good qualities but if it wasn’t so “natural”, I would have rated it lower.

Flavors: Pineapple, Plants

I’ve loved tea since I was a kid. I used to think it was a treat to have an orange pekoe tea with cream and a lump of sugar. When I was little, it made me feel like a real grown-up! I still love tea and drink it every day. I love trying new teas and find my cupboard filled to the max with more teas than a person should have! I love sitting down and relaxing with a hot cup of tea!

I drink a lot of green tea. The teas I’ve drank up to this point have been relatively boring but that’s how I generally prefer my tea, very low key.

This past Fall my sister introduced me to David’s Tea. She’s been a big fan for quite awhile now and now I’m on the bandwagon with her! My tea cupboard just got a lot more exciting! Now that I’ve become acquainted with David’s, as of late I am also introducing myself to some other brands as well thanks to the reviews here on Steepster!

I’m so happy that I discovered this site (by accident) and can’t wait to start rating teas, writing tea notes and meeting all of the other members.

A little bit about me: My name is Jason, I have 2 cats and I work in the health care and retail fields.
