Juicy Strawberry from Dave & Soloman’s Tea. . . .

With a name like juicy strawberry, I just knew I had to make this tea into iced tea. The tea itself is a beautiful loose leaf, and it looks like petals and dried strawberry. The smell alone is totally delicious. It smells like fresh berries. You know when you walk by strawberries in the grocery, that’s the smell. I brewed some up in my iced tea pitcher, and added no sweetener. This morning I poured myself a glass to have with breakfast, and all I can say is WOW. It tastes like strawberry punch. It absolutely needs no sweetener, it Read More

Green Gogi Tea from Dave & Solomon’s Tea

Not too long ago I took a sip or two of Green Gogi Tea from Dave & Solomon’s Tea HOT. It’s was just fine and dandy but I was eager to try it ICED because I had an inkling that it was going to be AWESOME and I was right! I guess one could add a sweetener of their choice to Green Gogi Tea from Dave & Solomon’s Tea if they wanted to do it ICED but I didn’t. I infused it – thru ice in – and BAM! Green Gogi Tea from Dave & Solomon’s Tea when done ICED Read More

Lavender Dream from Dave and Solomons Tea

Dave and Solomons are a mother and son tea blending company, currently selling their indie creations on their Etsy store. I hadn’t come across them before this sample arrived with me, but it’s always nice to discover a new tea company, if a little dangerous for the bank account! Lavender Dream is a fruit and herbal blend, combining the sweet fruitiness of peach with the light floral of lavender. It sounds a little odd to begin with, but I was pleased to discover that they’re actually two flavours which work incredibly well together. The dry leaf itself is incredibly pretty, Read More

Sweet Pear from Dave and Solomons Tea

I love the idea of pears in teas more than my experience with them in the past. For some reason, I always detect something artificial and medicinal.. I think it might just be from the pear flavoring, unfortunately. I do well with pear jelly beans and candies, but the pear flavoring in tea bothers me. The scent of this tea is reassuring as it’s a nice balance of sweet pear and a rather woody rooibos. I’m really hoping that this pear lives up to its benign scent. Sipping… wow, this is a little strange. When I take a sip of Read More

Paraiso from Dave and Solomon Teas

I have only had Yerba maté once, and it was plain and roasted. I didn’t care for it but felt it might appeal to a coffee drinker, which I am not. I see there is Yerba mate in this but I don’t taste it, or at least it doesn’t taste like the roasted maté I had. Which brings me to what it does taste like. Heaven. It smells and tastes like heaven. It smells so good that the rest of my tea was hijacked by my kid and she stuck a flag in the remaining leaves to claim it as her territory. My husband Read More
