46 Tasting Notes

Unfortunately this one seems a little thin tasting to me; however, I only had a small sample and it may not have been large enough for the amount of water I put it in. Not sure if I should order a full bag of it to give it a more fair try, or just stick with one of my other blueberry teas.

After trying this one, apparently elderberry doesn’t mesh well with my food sensitivities so I won’t be ordering this one.

Apparently I like the idea of vanilla rooibos more than I actually like all of the vanilla rooibos teas I have tried. The rooibos in this one is pretty smooth compared to most of the others I’ve had, but it’s still not strong enough of a vanilla flavor for me. It’s not bad by any means, just kind of… boring. I’ll keep it around to drink when I need something mild when I am sick.

In plain tasting teas like these, I like to add different flavor syrups to pep them up – you could try that!

That reminds me that I’m out of my lavender simple syrup, which makes me sad…

Good idea, thanks for the suggestion!

That sounds delicious! I’ve been enjoying the chai and butter toffee flavors from Skinny Syrups recently!

drank Bubble Gum by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

I really love all of the David’s Teas I have tried so far because they are so fun and flavorful. This one is no exception. It tastes pretty much it like it says, bubble gum! It’s more of a novelty flavor and I’m glad I tried it, but not a flavor I’d want to reach for often so I won’t be buying a full size of this one.

Flavors: Bubblegum

(Side note: Up until now I have stupidly been trying new teas in my huge 16 oz tumbler and wondering how on earth I will ever make it through all of the samples I’ve acquired…. today it hit me, DUH, make a smaller cup!)

Thanks to Shae for leaving a bit of this in the TTB for me to try! This is my first soda flavored tea and it’s quite interesting. It has a beautiful red color and tastes quite like, well, cherry cola! The cola flavor does come out a bit more once it’s cooled down and there’s a hint of spice as an after taste.

Overall I’m really grateful I got to try this one as I can’t drink cola due to dietary restrictions so I’m enjoying the novelty of having a cherry cola flavored tea. Even more than the taste I really love the aroma of this one!

Flavors: Cherry, Cola, Spices

I always make teas in huge mugs, and I guess the upside is that I get through standard 2 oz packages in just a few servings, so tea isn’t sitting around getting stale – pros and cons!

I am glad you liked it, I wasn’t really a fan of it, somehow.

This has a nice rich flavor in a subtle way. At first I thought it was too light for my liking, but I kept reaching for it and drank the cup down pretty quickly! The chocolate and hazelnut are both present in just the right amounts. Overall a pretty tasty tea.

Flavors: Chocolate, Hazelnut

That’s how I felt when I first started drinking Dammann Frères teas — now my cupboard is full of them. XD

I picked up a sample of this because the combination sounded intriguing. However, the rosemary seems to come through much stronger than the other flavors which was a little weird for me. While I love rosemary in baked goods, I apparently don’t like it as a strong flavor in tea.

Flavors: Chocolate, Rosemary

Shae

Oh no, I just ordered some of this one!

It sounded so promising and I was hoping for a chocolate-y creamy blend with a hint of rosemary, but sadly it was more like ROSEMARY with a hint of chocolate.

AJRimmer

Oh no! Yeah rosemary just isn’t a dessert ingredient no matter how hard it tries to be.

This is not bad! I like the creamy cinnamon flavor. It could be a little more flavorful but overall it gives me a cozy comforting feeling.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Creamy

I liked the idea of a pear tea but unfortunately the flavor in this one is very weak.

This is a really nice sweet orange and passion fruit tea. Great hot or iced. I can see myself drinking a lot of this over the summer as it’s pretty refreshing. Bought this as a sample and will probably order a larger tin to have around.

Flavors: Orange, Passion Fruit, Sweet

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
46 tasting notes

This was pretty good with a bit of creamer! Although I didn’t really taste much in the way of flavor until it started cooling down to room temperature a bit. Definitely willing to give it another try though because I quite enjoyed how vanilla-y and creamy it was once it had sat for a bit.

Flavors: Creamy, Vanilla

This is one of my favorites, but I’ll admit I didn’t understand the hype until I’d had a few cups.
