drank Peach Oolong by Adagio Teas
2386 tasting notes

Got this one from meowster. It tastes mostly like plain oolong. I’m not really getting any peach. The oolong itself tastes decent, but plain-tasting oolong just isn’t one of the teas I choose to drink. I have too many exciting ones!

drank Summer in Løv by Løv Organic

I steeped this in hot water for probably too long, then I put it in the fridge for later. What a nice, complex flavor! It tastes like apricot, but it also has depth. I wish I had more of this so I could try a cold brew. This isn’t the sort of tea you’d drink hot (I tried a sip – too weird) but it’s very refreshing cold. Thanks Cameron B!

drank Snowflake by Georgia Tea Company
2386 tasting notes

I got this one from Ost. Today I made a mug of this for my dad. I took a sip and decided to take a bunch more sips before actually handing the mug over…whoops. The flavor is so sweet. It’s light and desserty, slightly nutty. I definitely look forward to drinking more of this!

drank White Strawberry by Adagio Teas
2386 tasting notes

The most prominent flavor is the tea base. The strawberry flavor is pretty subtle. It does taste nice, but I’d like for the strawberry flavor to be stronger. I’ll have to try this cold next time to see if the flavors are clearer that way. Certainly not bad; I’ve just tasted better.

I really don’t like DavidsTea pumpkin chai, so it was probably a mistake to buy this tea. It has the same weird flavor that I dislike. It’s like… artificial and smokey? Unsure how to describe it. I get absolutely no pumpkin of cheesecake vibes from this. I’ll have to add this to my pile of teas to exchange.

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA
2386 tasting notes

To me, this tea tastes like brown sugar. I really like it! The flavor goes nicely with the mild black tea. I got it in a Christmas sampler last year, and I’ve been considering buying a big tin of it, but I have a lot of caffeinated teas to work through first.

I have heard a lot of good things about this one, so when I went to DAVIDsTEA on vacation over the weekend and discovered the Oh Canada! tea I wanted was discontinued, I bought this one instead. I haven’t tried it yet!

AJRimmer

Oh Canada is discontinued?! Well that breaks my heart. I’d say they’re not similar, but they’re both sweet and nice. I hope you like it!

Cameron B.

It doesn’t mention anything about it being discontinued or being made an online exclusive on the website…

Mastress Alita

Well, the person who worked there told me that, at the Palo Alto store. I have no DAVIDsTEAs anywhere in my local area, in podunk Idaho. I did come home and promptly check the website, and… ya, it’s on the website. They certainly did NOT have the tin of it at the Palo Alto store. It’s what the person working there told me, and it was the only tea I wanted to buy at DAVIDs on my trip. _;;

Finishing this tea from tea-sipper today. It tastes so strongly of sweet mango. I really, really like it.

Glad you liked this one!

So the first time I tried this tea, it tasted absolutely amazing. Exactly like its namesake. Every cup after that, however, ended up with a strange underlying…peppery? flavor. So delicious on top, strangeness lurking below. I’ll probably order more sometime next year and play around with it to try to coax it to its original perfection. That first cup was seriously in my top ten ever cups of tea.

drank Cookie by Lupicia
2386 tasting notes

Apparently I’ve rated this tea before? I’m pretty sure I’ve never had it, so that’s strange. My previous rating is right, though! It tastes a little bready, but mostly like plain black. I like black tea, but I would’ve liked to taste some of the cookie it’s named for. I added some vanilla, milk, and sugar to spice it up. That made it taste nice, but they would make anything taste nice. Thanks to Cameron B for this one.

Cameron B.

I thought I saw a note from you about this tea a few days ago.

AJRimmer

Oh whoops, I guess the one I had a few days ago was for a different tea and I accidentally put the review here instead. It’d take a bit of detective work to figure out which tea the other one was. You labeled them so nicely, but I guess when I’m at work, sometimes I misremember which sample I’m trying!

Cameron B.

I would guess maybe White Christmas (also by Lupicia)? It’s pretty similar to this one.

AJRimmer

You know what, I think you’re right! Whoops. Well I deleted the other note anyway. All is right now.

drank Calm Chamomile by Tazo
2386 tasting notes

I’ve had a pitcher of this in my fridge to take to work this week. I like chamomile, but I definitely prefer it with other things mixed in, so this was perfect! I had to use four teabags when I usually only need three for a pitcher, but that’s my only complaint. The flavor kind of stays in your mouth. I added some sugar, so it tastes mostly sweet and a little minty. It’s mild, but very…thirst-quenching?

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
