drank Frosted Cereal by DAVIDsTEA
413 tasting notes

I absolutely had to try this one. What a whacky flavor. The fake cream flavoring they’re using totally does give me the impression of cereal milk. I don’t know that I love this, but it’s interesting to try! It probably tastes best cold. I taste frosted flakes! How fun. Thanks to amandastory516 for the share!

Thanks to amandastory516 for the sample. Unfortunately, it tastes rather floral and artificial. I don’t get any of the flavors it’s supposed to have. The flavor is pretty strong and not very pleasant. Just a weird one.

I bought this on sale in July because it was super cheap, but I had no interest in it. Today I finally tried it and wow was I wrong. It doesn’t even need sugar. This marshmallow flavor is so delicious. There’s a bit of toastiness and lots of marshmallow. Geez this is good.

I am not sure if it spark my interest, but it seems nice.

Rice Moo-long was a good find in the sale.

Putting it on my wish list. Sounds delicious.

When it was hot, this tea was kind of eh. Once it’s cooled down to room temperature, it’s rather lovely! I never have nuts and fruit together, so at first I didn’t notice what I was tasting, but the almond and strawberry are both present, and they complement each other so nicely. I look forward to having more!

drank Cinnamon Chai by teakruthi
413 tasting notes

I was thinking about Harney’s cinnamon tea when I picked this one, so I was surprised by how mild this is. The black tea is very nice with no bitterness, and the cinnamon is rather muted. This is one you wouldn’t want milk with because it would overwhelm the flavors. It’s definitely not a spicy chai. It’s just a mild black tea with light cinnamon. Not bad.

drank Fig Crumble by A Quarter to Tea
413 tasting notes

When I was a kid, we had a small fig tree that would produce one fig a year. The six of us would split that one fig, and it was always so wonderful. I haven’t found a store that carries fresh figs, and I don’t like dried ones, so anyway, maybe fig tea will do the trick? Actually, this one tastes entirely like roses. I thought it was fun that the blend had oats in it, but all I can taste is rose. Since I’m not a big fan of floral teas, sadly this is not a winner for me. Still, thanks to amandastory516 for the sample! Can’t rate it too highly because it doesn’t taste how it’s supposed to at all.

I’d like to try a good fig tea … interestingly, the dried elderberries I get from our bulk health food place taste a little like figs or raisins to me, so that’ll have to do for now.

I love your fig story. :D I hope you find a good fig tea that matches your memory, eventually!

drank Horchata by A Quarter to Tea
413 tasting notes

Thanks so much to amandastory516 for the swap! This was the first one I tried because I love horchata, and I would love to find a tea that accomplishes that flavor. Surprisingly, the main flavors I get here are a light pineapple/coconut along with some nice toastiness. I can say that it mildly evokes horchata, but really, it’s delicious regardless. It’s so light and tasty. The resteep tasted like plain genmaicha. I’m glad I have enough for more cups!

I used four bags of this to make a pitcher of tea to drink cold. The box was $2 at TJMaxx, and this is pretty tasty, especially for that price. I definitely get the sweet caramel, and the rooibos is good as well. Neither overpowers the other. I even got a decent resteep from the bags. I’m very pleased with this purchase! I’m pretty surprised by all the negative reviews.

gmathis

Yeah, I flipped back and looked … my original review wasn’t very complimentary. Which is a bummer…honeybush and caramel ought to be a perfect pairing.

drank Strawberry & Vanilla by Lupicia
413 tasting notes

I’m so bad at remembering to unsteep teas. I bought a cute kitchen timer at a little shop, but it doesn’t ring unless the times are longer than five minutes. So anyway I oversteeped this tea horribly the first time, and it was undrinkable. I had enough leaf left for a small second cup, and that was very nice. The green is mild, and the vanilla is pleasant. There may be a little bit of fruitiness. I wish I hadn’t ruined my first cup, but thanks to tea-sipper for sharing!

Mastress Alita

I always have my laptop sitting on my kitchen table to watch videos while I eat, and I just use the timer on Google (just type “timer” on Google and it gives you one) to time my tea so I’ve never needed an actual one, heh.

AJRimmer

That’s a good idea! There’s a timer app on my phone, but apparently my laziness is infinite since I never use it!

drank Lavender Swirl by DAVIDsTEA
413 tasting notes

Thanks to Peach for this delicious tea! It reminds me of Teavana’s lavender creme. The lavender is definitely there, but it’s backed up by a strong dessert flavor. It’s so creamy and sweet. I wouldn’t mind having some more of this one!!

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, 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. 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
