drank Caramel Shortbread by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

This tea smells delightful – exactly like its name! – but it falls flat on its flavour profile. It tastes nothing like caramel, shortbread, or any sort of cookie or dessert. Instead it tastes like a sweeter and milder version of DT’s Sleigh Ride. I can’t say I particularly like it, but it is interesting to look at – it has slices of almonds and hazelnut bits! Just looking to finish it lol.

drank Lemon Pound Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I’m literally having a cup of this right now after months, and I’m happy all over again! It smells and tastes exactly like its namesake – LEMON POUND CAKE! So magical, so nice, I have no complaints. But be sure not to add too much water if you’re using only one heaping teaspoon because then it tastes like nothing but hot water which is no fun lol.

drank Chamomile by Tim Hortons

This is the first blend of chamomile I’ve ever tried, and it does the trick of making me feel reasonably better while tasting good at the same time! I have to double-bag it for my nerves though lol.

Word of caution: this tea is STRONG! I drink my tea clear with a bit of sugar, so the flavour is very pronounced and reveals itself after a few minutes (maybe 2 to 3 minutes) of steeping. I still really like it, but if you leave the bag in for too long it tastes worse than burnt coffee lol.

drank English Breakfast by Tim Hortons

This particular blend of English breakfast is really good although I highly doubt it’s genuinely English breakfast as all the ingredient list States is that it contains “black tea” lol. It’s quite sweet and comforting! I just don’t leave the bag in for very long as if it’s in for too long the tea ceases to have any flavour and just tastes burnt lol.

drank Apple Cinnamon by Tim Hortons

Oh my god, don’t even get me started on this tea. I tried it when I worked at Tim’s and it literally tastes like vomit! I felt sick throughout my shift after drinking this. It completely threw me off apples and cinnamon in tea, which I later discovered can taste good when blended and prepared properly. This tea is not a good blend at all, and timmies has some good tea compared to their coffee! Lol

drank Sleigh Ride by DAVIDsTEA

I had no idea this tea had apples and cinnamon in it which I (thought I) hated, so I reluctantly tried it a full month after purchasing it and… It wasn’t so bad! I was quite pleasantly surprised! It’s also positively gorgeous and steeps a very pretty and bold shade of red! It’s quite the novelty! The flavour is very overwhelming though, and I find it difficult to finish it whenever I make it. It has a very strong sourish flavour that vaguely tastes like the tea has spoiled, which is how apple cinnamon tea tastes in general to me. It’s palatable though – at least when it’s piping hot lol

This tea… IS AMAZING. It tastes exactly like its namesake! Despite the name, it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet or overpowering. It has a nice flavour of blueberries and black tea just as it’s intended to. Love it! Can’t wait to get more! :)

This tea certainly does the job in calming your nerves, but the flavour can get a bit overwhelming. If you leave the bag in for too long, it gets overly sweet which doesn’t happen with other blends of chamomile I’ve tried. Also I’m not sure why but sometimes it tastes quite sour even if the bag hasn’t been in the cup for very long. I really like the packaging, the name, and the intention behind crafting this tea, but it’s not something I would purchase again or recommend or make for anyone.

drank Pure Chamomile by Twinings

Aaaaa chamomile, what would I do without you? So far, I have found that this is the most effective blend of chamomile for me to deal with overwhelming feelings of anxiety and depression. It also tastes really sweet, so that’s a pickmeup in itself! My favourite blend of chamomile. The packaging is also gorgeous!
