This was the second time I have tasted this tea. I was unimpressed the first time around. But today I felt like having a mild slightly sweet black tea—this filled the bill nicely.

This was the tea of the day down at David’s. I tasted the sample and said, “meh,” but it was promising enough to ask for a cup sweetened with a little honey. The honey seemed to add to the complexity, and it was quite nice for dessert.

drank Crème Brulée by DAVIDsTEA

Okay, so I like rooibos in general, and I like caramel. But for some reason this tea just doesn’t do it for me. There is some other scent or flavor in there that is a bit gamey. That spoils it for me.

Flavors: Barnyard

I had never before tried a milk oolong, so I didn’t know what to expect. This is like a cup of hot milk before bed. Liquid comfort food.

It is really cold in Boston today, and I found myself craving this tea. It’s like my own personal fireplace!

My second try of this one and it is just not doing it for me. The first time all I could taste was pecan, which was okay, but I wanted more maple. This time, with a shorter steep, I’m not even getting pecan. It is a pleasant enough, mild, sort of yeasty oolong, but not what I was looking for.

Flavors: Pecan, Yeasty

I haven’t had David’s Tea non-flavored tea before. This was good. I’ll get a cup now and then when they have it.

Wow, I am pleasantly surprised by this tisane. I couldn’t drink Tavalon’s Lemongrass Green tea because of its high astringency. But this is delicious. Nice lemon flavor, slightly sweet.

Flavors: Lemon

I’m not a peach anything fan, but I am a fan of Formosa Oolong so I gave this a try. I liked it quite a bit. Very smooth, with just a bit of peach flavor.

Formerly exclusively a coffee drinker—-plain black. But I’ve turned over a new leaf, and now consume tea in the afternoons and evenings. And I love flavored, interesting teas—but I get bored with them quickly, and so need lots to switch around.
