drank Honey Black by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Oh YUM! I love smooth blacks and this one is delish. I put honey in my black tea, so when I see the name HONEY right in the name, I know this tea is for me (despite the fact that it doesn’t contain honey). To me, it reminds of my Twinings Earl Grey – flavorful, yet smooth and mild. I think impossible to even oversteep. This easily has become one of my favorite blacks…

I am on a quest for the perfect Rooibos! Unfortunately, this isn’t it. I am still not super excited about chocolate in my tea, although chocolate and Rooibos do go together quite well. It’s the mint that is really out of place here. Mint belongs in an herbal tea – not a Rooibos. It’s still okay to drink, but nothing special. Too bad…the quest continues…

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA

I did a taste of this tea while in the store and despite my love for all things peanut butter, especially the peanut butter cup, I am never going to love it in my tea. It tasted wrong…

Gah – I am just not a pumpkin lover when it’s not pie. This is no exception. I’ll stick to a cinnamon flavor with my Chai, thanks very much!

drank Bravissimo by DAVIDsTEA

YUCK is the best word to describe this tea. The aftertaste – pure black licorice! It’s too bad, because the throat soothing properties of this tea are supposed to be amazing. I think I’ll stick to cough drops, thanks…

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA

I feel like this is a major Rooibos discovery! I haven’t found a Rooibos I liked as much as the Pure Vanilla – and I feel as though this one offers something new to the Rooibos family and yet still tastes delicious! It’s a smooth Rooibos – no hints of the nasty tobacco aftertaste – it’s all a smooth orangey tang to offset that. A wonderful evening tea for me!

Hot apple cider – and very sweet – no sweetener required! Very good stuff – may buy more!

drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA

I wasn’t a fan of this one…it had a funny smell and and taste. I think I may have to give the rest of it away, but I may want to try it one more time and shorten the steeping time…

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

I liked this more when it was steeped really weak. I recently let it steep cold in the fridge for 24 hours and it was a mistake. Still yummy – tastes like Kool-Aid!

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA

I stocked up on this one during the 40% off summer sale. It’s quite a nice tea cold, and even is quite tasty warm. I love my peachy flavors, so this was a no brainer.

I am not new to drinking tea on a regular basis, but I’ve opened my experimentation levels to expand beyond sticking to my favorite teas, which are:

-Earl Greys
-Any Black tea with or without flavoring (I like peach, currant, and berry flavors best)
-Green tea with citrus or berry flavors

Tea Ratings Defined – I rate my teas in multiples of 5. I still haven’t found a tea that blew my socks off!

Under 50: Gross – cannot finish
50-60: Satisfactory – I’ll drink it, but only this one time.
65-75: Good – I’m enjoying it and may buy when it’s on sale.
80-90: Excellent – It’s always in my tea cupboard!
95-100: Blew my socks off!
