This…is weird. There is a creaminess to it, but it also tastes like dill and spearmint and reminds me of that flavor you get in your mouth if you eat right after brushing your teeth. It’s a bit sour (lime?) and grassy…
I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish this cuppa.

Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Dill, Grass, Lime, Spearmint

drank Spiced Plum by Harney & Sons

I’ve had the Passion Plum from Harney before (and I may have even had this one as well) and I remember liking it but not loving it. I’m still in the same boat now – the plum is hidden, it’s still there and a little crisp (almost hibiscus-y) but this tastes like apple crisp with a little bit of plum in it. It would be fantastic with a little bowl of ice cream right before bed. I’ll definitely keep digging into this one while I have the box but I don’t know if I’ll be keeping it with me.

Flavors: Apple, Baked Bread, Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg, Oats, Plums

drank French Toast by 52teas

I’m going to preface this by saying I hate French Toast – I’ve had multiple french toast teas and they’re really hit or miss, it depends on which flavors come out from the tea.
This one has a mild chai taste, I’m not getting much baked bread flavor but the black tea base is heavily apparent, not that I mind. It reminds me exactly of what I interpret the end of fall to taste like, a little Christmassy with the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors. It almost tastes like eggnog without the creaminess. Overall I actually like it.

Not rating as to not screw with those who actually like French Toast flavored teas.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Eggnog, Nutmeg, Vanilla

The only decaf in the box – this is floral but a good floral, not overpowering. A little sweet and almost berry like, I like how “sharp” it is, though the flavor is mellow. I think I understeeped it (water cooled too quickly) so I’ll have to try this again, but I like it.

Flavors: Berry, Floral, Fruity, Sweet

drank 993 Tutti Fruitti by Wicked Tea

Hibiscus! Just when I thought I was running low on hibiscus based teas this guy came along. I really love this. It doesn’t taste like how I interpret “tutti frutti” but it’s good, not sweet – heavy on the hibiscus, but I like that. The apple/orange/raisin bit worried me a little but it’s not a turn off and they blend really nicely together. It’s very spring/fall-ish to me – turn of the season kind of thing, a bit like a fruity cider but no real spice to it. Definitely hanging onto this one.

Flavors: Apple, Berry, Hibiscus, Rose, Tart

drank Pink Lemonade by DAVIDsTEA

Here’s Hoping TTB!

I came home late from a long, dragging day at work (on a Friday, none the less) to find this outside my door! Hooray!!! Ironically, I had just texted my boyfriend about an hour earlier to comment on how little tea I drank today. That’s going to be quick to change now ;)

I picked out this one for no particular reason, but seeing as it’s November it’s a bit out of season. I like it…but I hate how David’s always throws sweeteners in their tea. If I wanted sweetened tea, I’d put it in myself! Because of that, it’s a little too sweet – the stevia is pretty heavy handed in my opinion, and completely knocks out any flavor besides the lemon… which I guess is what lemonade is but.. eh…

Flavors: Lemon, Sugar

drank Quince Charming by DAVIDsTEA
247 tasting notes

I didn’t especially love or hate this tea but I only got .5oz early in the summer and just finished it off today. It’s got notes of apple and (I think) lychee, but I’m honestly not sure what quince tastes like. If I had the opportunity to get more of this, I might, but I’m not upset that it’s gone.

Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Hibiscus, Lychee

drank Bravissimo by DAVIDsTEA

I hate this tea so much, but it always helps with colds. Finally happy to get this out of my cupboard, though that doesn’t mean that it won’t be back in a few months (I’m hoping some good old peppermint tea can help do the trick for now…)

This is just too sweet for me, I hate the stevia that’s added to it and I’m not at all fond of licorice. But when I’m sick, all of those flavors get very toned down and it’s cooling, a bit of mint (?) shines through and some lemongrass possibly. It’s refreshing and soothing, but only when I’m sick, haha.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Licorice, Mint, Sweet

Bio

I got into loose leaf teas about three years back when I figured I might be a little too old for Celestial Seasoning’s Zinger Teas. Ever since, I’ve been sneaking out of the house to find obscure hole in the wall tea shops to get my fix and swapping teas as I go.
Lately, I’ve been into herbals and rooibos, but I do enjoy black tea, specifically ceylons. I mainly drink flavored teas.

Currently Looking For:
Caramel flavored teas
Cherry herbals
