Love Tea #7: The Fifty Shades of Grey of Teas from DAVIDsTea. . . . .

Dear David’s Tea, What happened to Love Teas 1-6? Did you kill them, David? If so, how? If not, where are they? Are they okay? Can I check in on them? But, David, between you and me, I’m glad they’re out of the picture. Because this #7 is a delight. It’s like Valentine’s Day in a tea. Chocolate. Strawberries. Roses. You hit all the high points, plus it genuinely tastes good. Did you see this in my wish list, David, and magic it into my Sororitea Sisters care package? Are you stalking me in addition to murdering your previous teas? Read More

Berry Romantic from DAVIDs Tea. . . . .

They say to never judge a book by its cover. I know this– really, I do. But you guys. This tea is SO PRETTY. It might’ve tasted like swamp muck and I would’ve been too distracted by the big, beautiful flower buds and petals, strawberry pieces, and fairy-like flowery-somethings filling up my cup to actually notice. Luckily, that’s not the case. This tea delivers just as much on the palate as it does on the eyes, with creamy strawberry notes atop delicate, floral oolong leaves. With a little honey, it’s perfectly sweet– but even without, it’s a beautiful mix of Read More

Alpine Strawberry from Mountain Witch Tea Company. . . . .

Around this time every year, I get a craving for berries. Fresh, bright, juicy and sweet– I don’t know if it’s subliminal marketing towards pinks and reds from all the Valentine’s Day goodness floating around in the month of February or the sheer ferocity of Midwestern cabin fever (let me eat a plant that doesn’t taste like water just once, PLEASE), but the craving just keeps getting stronger and stronger. So when I noticed this tea sitting in my stash, I was almost surprised that something promising bright, juicy berry flavors had even lasted this long into the winter! The Read More

Strawberry White from Shantitea. . . . .

When I first opened my package of Strawberry White from Shantitea, the amazing scent of fresh strawberries was overwhelmingly mouthwatering. I loved the fresh, fruity scent!! The tea leaves were full and rich in color. After letting Strawberry White infuse, I poured my first cup and enjoyed the sweet scent and vibrant red shade of the tea. I love white tea, and especially when it’s fruity with a hint of floral, both scent and flavor wise. When I took my first sip, I noticed a tart and candy-like sweetness. I also notice an almost tobacco leaf like flavor, which is Read More

Valentine Tea Alert! Love Tea #7 from David’s Tea. . .

My lovely, kind, smart and wonderful fiancé has one fatal flaw. He doesn’t like strawberries, you guys. STRAWBERRIES. How?! I wish I could tell you. I, on the other hand, clearly am a fan. So when I dug this tea out of my sample stash, I knew that this could go one of two ways: I could love it, and rejoice in the more-for-me glory, or it could fall seriously flat and I wouldn’t be able to pawn it off on him as I so often do with teas that I don’t love (Whoops. Sorry for all the rejects, honey). Read More
