Bought a sample of this. It diffidently has a raisin sweetness to it. I did not believe the description when I first read it, but it stands true. I have been getting used to the honey, and musky undertones from other black teas. This was a surprise. I will probably order again with my next samovar shipment.

drank Black Needles by DAVIDsTEA
138 tasting notes

Just bought this tea from DavidsTea. I had a hard time deciding which straight black tea I wanted. I usually like dark musky black teas that can stand with a little milk and sugar. I even did a little taste test with my favorite black tea. Copper Knot from Teavana. I brewed both for 3 minutes, same amount of water and same temp. The Black needles had a sweet smell, and very light color like scotch. It had a smooth honey taste, no astringency from it .

I have been drinking it without milk or sugar, its that smooth. love it

Love the coconut. I had my shipment of DavidsTea sent to my work. I opened it there and lets just say everyone wanted a little taste.

drank Cinnamon Stonefruit by Samovar

Well I bought this tea because it was on clearance and I love all of the ingredients. When I smelled it for the first time it smelled like a baked plum. When I brewed it I could smell the hibiscus and licorice more then the plum. With the first sip I would taste the plum right away then the licorice towards the back of my mouth.

Then came the hibiscus and the licorice again. The plum disappeared on me.

drank Egyptian Licorice by Yogi Tea

I love REAL licorice tea. I think it’s pretty simple yet complex. One of my go to teas. It is one of the only teas that I will always buy that is bagged. I will not quit it…lol. It is a staple for me. With a touch of cream it is a delight. I have even made it on the stovetop with milk, then put it in the fridge to cool.it makes a nice ice tea.

I have even surprised a few friends that swear up and down that they hate licorice. I pour them a glass of this over ice, and they lap it up. Which makes me laugh since they keep saying they hate licorice, but love this.

Love it. The coconut and lemongrass make this a nice tropical getaway from the traditional masala chai. Mmmmm…good.

The Purrfect Cup

Glad I read there was coconut in this before drinking it! It came as part of the Chai Sampler I purchased not long ago.
