Apparently I’ve forgotten to log this tea every time I drank it. It’s become the new favourite in my family. Recently bought 200g for me and 200g for my mom. It’s also the first tea I’ll reach for when serving guests in my home. May it continue to be sold forever!

Flavors: Flowers, Jasmine

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 5 tsp 20 OZ / 591 ML

drank Lemon Pound Cake by DAVIDsTEA
120 tasting notes

I am always disappointed by teas that smell great and taste nothing like advertised. So imagine my surprise when this tasted exactly like lemon pound cake. Actually, I was most reminded of the lemon poppyseed loaf that Starbucks sells—the only thing missing from each mouthful was the poppyseeds.

Although the flavour was accurate, it seems strange to be drinking this instead of eating an actual cake. It just means that I have to be in the right mood to enjoy this. This won’t be an everyday tea for me, which is just as well, because I only stocked 100g.

Flavors: Cake, Lemon

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Strawberries & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

This was my first cup of tea in a long while, since I prefer other drinks in the summer. Honestly, it tasted like a watered down Strawberry Shake (one of DT’s green teas). Looks like I didn’t know what to say the last time I tried it either. Third time’s the charm? I won’t even rate this right now.

Flavors: Strawberry

drank Salted Caramel Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve sampled this a few times, trying to justify why I bought so much of it. I had really high hopes after reading others’ reviews, but didn’t really like my hot cups of tea or the one latte I made. Last night, due to the summer heat, I packed a tea ball full of leaves and tried an overnight cold brew – I think I’m on to something. I’ll probably continue to cold brew this tea in the future, but still not sure I love it enough to restock my cupboard once I run out.

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 5 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Strawberry Shake by DAVIDsTEA
120 tasting notes

This is a regular staple of my cupboard that I drink every now and then whenever I want a flavoured green tea. I was reading the product page again and was surprised to see yogurt listed as an ingredient, because I’ve never tasted a hint of it. As always, I just get a nice grassy flavour with a subtle hint of sweetness from the strawberry.

Flavors: Strawberry

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 5 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Teageschwendner used to make Anna’s Blend, a strawberry and yogurt black tea. It was magnificent but is sadly discontinued.

It’s been another long while since I’ve logged in to Steepster. I reached the bottom of my bag today for this tea, and I’m sad to see it go. I hope DAVIDsTEA will restock it in the future, and hopefully I’ll have enough points for another redemption by then. Meanwhile, I’ll resteep as many times as I can.

Flavors: Rose

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

You’re most likely to find: Black/Green/Oolong Teas. Caramel. Chocolate. Cream.

I am also tempted by: Flowers. Comparisons to alcohol. Berries.

Despite the above, I generally dislike herbal teas and fruit infusions.

Coffee flavours do not belong in tea. If I want coffee, I will go to Starbucks.
