Wow this legitimately tastes like apple cake! The quality of the apple reminds me of apple juice also. It’s lightly spiced and great warm with milk and sugar. I’m sure the walnuts help the dessertiness too. This was by far our favorite tea, and we’re already looking forward to trying next month’s afternoon tea!

This tastes like banana flavoring, but that’s nice enough with milk and sugar. The tea brewed up super light. I would have had no idea it’s black tea. So this was artificial and one-note, but not bad.

drank Peachy Keen by The Ivy Tearoom

We tried out another afternoon tea spot in town! The food was delicious, and they blend their own teas! We got to pick three to go with our tiers of treats. This one tastes like peach rings! It’s definitely a fake peach, but it’s still enjoyable. I didn’t notice the caramel that was supposed to be there. It was one-note, but nice warm with milk and sugar. I bet it would be pleasant iced too, though maybe the fakeness would come out even more like that.

This tastes pretty bready! Nothing really makes me think pumpkin though. The base is quite hearty, especially with a longer steep. I also taste mild spices. I wish I could taste pumpkin!

TTB tea! This is quite malty and nice! It has a tasty, rich body. Really, I’m happy with this! I actually regret sharing the cup of it. I wish I had more!

drank Bahama Blue by DAVIDsTEA

This has a lemongrass flavor plus some fruitiness that’s not tart, just smooth and tasty. It tastes quite blue, whatever that means. I guess somewhat fake? It’s okay cold, but I wouldn’t order it again.

I’m a fan of 52teas making more whip teas! The pineapple one was amazing, and this one is delicious too! The balance between light, fresh strawberry flavor and creamy marshmallowy flavor is perfect. I think steeping shorter than 3 minutes is best to eliminate any bitterness. The last cup of it was particularly pillowy, though it does need some sugar to bring out that flavor.

I taste a lot of lavender on a nice decaf base. The bergamot could be even stronger, but really, I thought this was quite a decent decaf EG. I’m always looking for good ones!

Lavender is so lovely when done right!

This tastes like a pretty typical almond rooibos, but that’s the sort of thing I enjoy. Cold, the marzipan flavor comes through quite strongly. I wouldn’t necessarily seek this out, but I liked it!

drank Salted Caramel Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Got this from a Halloween sampler. The caramel flavor is pretty desserty and nice. The base is a little thin. Maybe it would have been better on a black tea or rooibos. With sugar and milk, it’s still quite tasty!

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
