drank Calming Chamomile by DAVIDsTEA

Bag saved from a TTB. With my usual chamomile treatment of milk and flavoring syrup, this was tasty! Plain, it tasted like a pretty normal chamomile. Not worth seeking out specifically, but not bad at all.

drank Silent Night by DAVIDsTEA

I taste the orange and some nuttiness. It’s not the most unique flavor combination, but it’s decent cold. It’s a refreshing combination, but there’s something I can’t put my finger on that I’d prefer tweaked a bit. Maybe I need to underleaf this one for my preferences. I just feel like I’ve had better versions of this tea.

drank Easter Basket by St. James Tearoom

This is tart, but in a nice way, like sour candy. They serve it warm, but I bet this is really refreshing cold. It needs some sugar to smooth it out. I don’t think I’d seek this out specifically among a sea of red fruity teas, but this isn’t bad.

drank Caramel Apple by Nelson's Tea

I actually really like this one! I taste a lot of caramel along with the apple. It’s quite desserty and nice with sugar and milk. I would order this again! The rooibos is a delicious base for this flavor combo.

drank The Trickster by Wild Coast Brew

The leaf of this is really powdery since it’s supposed to be an herbal coffee. The scent was super bitter, and I thought I wouldn’t like it, but the spice combination turns this into a decent chai! There’s a good bit of roastiness and some relatively mild spices. It’s earthy and interesting with some sugar and almond milk. I appreciate the unique variety of foraged ingredients here. It makes it feel extra fresh!

The strongest flavor is coconut. Combined with the black tea, it tastes really high quality and comforting. There’s a hint of spices as well. It especially shines cold with milk and sugar.

drank Wonderland Cake by The Ivy Tearoom

This is pleasantly desserty! I wouldn’t call it carrot cake, but I definitely taste the spices. After eating something super sweet in our dessert course, my partner and I turned to each other and at the same time said that now we could taste the carrot cake! It just needed something to bring it out. I’ve had much tastier carrot cake teas, so I wouldn’t prioritize this one. It was nice, but it didn’t stand out.

I taste the caramel, and I do get the donut vibe! It’s pretty decadent and desserty. It reminds me of the butterscotch flavoring from Adagio, though this is a green base. This was by far our favorite tea from afternoon tea.

I recently enjoyed another lovely visit to Ivy Tearoom. This tea was Forever Nuts-ish, though not as tasty as other versions. There’s a bit of a weird flavor here. It’s nutty, but not exciting. Good with milk and sugar. It was probably our least favorite tea of the meal.

drank Banana Eggnog Oolong by 52teas
2390 tasting notes

Nice authentic banana flavor and buttery oolong. This tasted good both with and without soy milk. This was really high quality, though I’m not sure I tasted eggnog specifically. I’d happily drink it again though! 52teas banana is always awesome.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
