Hot Lips was today’s tea. It smells good, like hot cinnamon candies. I must say that I usually don’t like cinnamon flavours since I drank too much Goldschlagger in college and got sick. Oi. So, I wasn’t sure if I’d like this tea, but it was good. I liked the heat from the cayenne too. It was all round a nice, toasty tea.
I give Hot Lips a 3.5 out of 5.
Ahhh, here it is. This is a classic orange pekoe flavoured tea, David’s Organic Breakfast. From smell to taste, this makes me think of my childhood, with Mom and Gran drinking their Red Rose. :). I find this type of tea bitter, and so I don’t really like it overall. If I was a fan though, I think this particular tea would be rated high among its peers. It is bold, and has lots of flavour.
I give this tea a 3 out of 5. If you’re an orange pekoe fan though, I bet you’d love this tea!
I must be honest; any tea that David’sTea has put out that is a dessert flavour I’ve ran and bought very promptly. I am a foodie, and I love desserts, Creme Brûlée not excluded. So, I do already have this tea in my collection, and I love it. It’s got a great caramel aftertaste, and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, so it’s ideal on a cold winter night.
I give Creme Brûlée a 4 out of 5.
I was glad today’s tea is Glitter & Gold, another long time fan-favourite that I haven’t yet tried. I could stop this post right here and give this tea 5 stars, just on the basis that it GLITTERS!!! It was love at first brew when the gold started swirling and sparkling in my cup. <3.
But, I have to calm down and give this tea my serious evaluation. :). It's got an orange pekoe kind of bland smell, meh. The taste isn't bad though. It's got a bit of sweet to it, I think without that the tea would be a bit bitter, but that sweetness makes it yum. I forgot about the half mug I had left on my desk while I worked away at an important project on my computer, and when I went back to it it was cold. So I can also say that this…

Cream of Earl Grey is a completely new tea experience for me. Growing up, I my Mom only drank orange pekoe tea (Red Rose, available only in Canada!). I had no idea any other type of tea existed. As I got older, and my sheltered world expanded a bit, I discovered. A few other types of tea, like green and chamomile. Then the tea movement happened, and kaboom! There were hundreds of types of tea everywhere. I tried a wide range of tropical, fruity, interesting teas. Because of the exciting teas, I never gave traditional teas a second look. I just figure they’re all blah like orange pekoe, and haven’t bothered. Until today, with my Cream of Earl Grey.
It does have a traditional tea taste, which isn’t really, pardon my pun, my cup of tea. I picture the Queen drinking this tea. With that being said, I can appreciate…

If you’re a foodie, like me, then you know salted caramel is all the rage right now. Pfft. I caught on to the salty/sweet magic when I was younger and loved to have a chocolate bar with a bag of salt and vinegar chips. Flavour magic!
David’sTea has brought the marriage of salty and sweet to a whole new level with Salted Caramel. This black tea is caramely, without being overly sweet. Then, the salt is there just after you swallow. And I can’t forget to mention how delicious this tea smells. Yum! Good job David!
I give Salted Caramel a 4 out of 5.
Today’s tea is Coco Chai Rooibos. I usually don’t make chai at home, because I prefer it as a latte, and frankly I’m too lazy to mess with warming milk, etc. I like to just pop some tea into a tea ball, fire up the Keurig, and away I go. Today I brewed the Coco Chai Rooibos as is, sipped it, and yup, made it into a latte. It’s delicious! A little watery, but if I had known I was going to make it into a latte, I would have brewed it stronger. This would be a great tea for a cold winter night, if you’re out and about.
I give Coco Chai Rooibos a 3 out of 5.
