drank Oolong Supreme by DAVIDsTEA
71 tasting notes

The buttery rich flavor of Oolong Supreme really caters to the taste buds nicely. I found this one tasted even better during a second or third steeping. It’s very soothing on a sensitive stomach so as I recovered the tea made it easier to take meals. I can imagine that later on that this tea would make a great travelling partner for photo shoots. In the meanwhile I’ve been drinking it while reading fantasy novels. Which in a way is kind of like travelling without having to leave the house. Haha. Happy tea drinking everyone.

With a bit of a Summer cold because of the sudden change in the weather it was great to have two new Oolong teas to try. Of the two the lighter plum notes of this one was very therapeutic to the senses and made it nice to drink during the recovery period. It helped to give a needed boost of energy for the times I wasn’t resting in bed. I would recommend this to anyone who was after a refreshing and healing tea.

drank Cherry Snowcone by DAVIDsTEA
71 tasting notes

If you love the very rare and limited “Cherry Blossom” you’ll absolutely dig the caffeine free version of “Cherry Snowcone”. In dry mix form it also has that cuteness factor with the snow flake sprinkles. It has a very lovely fragrance and will appeal to those who enjoy a mild fruity tea with a flavorful twist.

It does well as a tea pop and the flavor is not lost while enjoyed as an iced tea. For those who still love their teas hot, it is very soothing to the senses. I can bet that this will be a tea that can branch over the seasons. Picture “Indian Summer” and you can probably get the idea. Cheers!

drank Caramel Corn by DAVIDsTEA

Happy Summer everyone. It’s been awhile hasn’t it, I hope you all are well. With the photography business in full swing and the nice weather finding subject matter to shoot has been at a high. It has also brought travel opportunities to the forefront. That being said what better to bring along on those shoots and locations than good old David’s tea and their amazing blends.

This one in particular is a nostalgic reminder of Movie night minus the caffeine kick. It’s lovely and sweet for the taste buds. The soft pink hue and the scent also add a nice sensory twist on a hot day. I could imagine being by the water with this in my travel mug and sipping the blend happily while scoping out a good angle. Very inspiring and fun!

drank Rhubarb Chai by DAVIDsTEA

A little bit spicy and warming yet comforting all at the same. A fitting description of a mother and a fitting description of this tea. I picked this one up in the specialty tin and have enjoyed each cup of the delicious brew. As it is one of their rarities I have been rationing it as well. Much like I do for their Cherry Blossom tea blend. If you have this one I recommend trying it iced for the Summer as the flavor notes will make for a nice cooling effect on the body after a long day out on the trails/beach. Cheers!

Being a fan of Macaroons and French Macarons it really made me curious to see how this tea would compare. The combination of pecans, cacao and coconut really worked well in the black tea. It was rich yet had a lightness to it like the cookies that the tea is named for. It was a great addition to the Easter sample collection and whet the appetite for the official launch on the Thursday.

It also provided a nice reminder of an old favorite “Toasted Walnut”. So if you like that blend you’ll be happy to try this one. For iced tea fans, I think you’d be able to drink this cold but this really is one meant for the more hotter side of the spectrum. Cheers!

I was expecting a little bit of a similar flavor to Bubbly when they said it was their new grape tea but I’d have to say it’s more unique than that. It’s kind of fresh like grape juice with the round flavors of green tea playing in the backdrop to help pronounce those very subtle qualities of the fruit. It’s not too bad and would make a great iced tea. I’ll have to drink a bit more of it to say if it’d be a standard for the season . I’m still partial to the retired tea “Cherry Blossom” for that. Cheers.

Maybe I’ll try it if it is a sample. but the teas smells like artificial grape soda, which was a turn off for me, so I didn’t get any.

drank Blue Lagoon by DAVIDsTEA

A lovely alternative to Blueberry Jam if you have people who cannot enjoy caffeine. It has all the flavor of the tea without the compromise. The pineapple itself lends to the natural sweetness of the berry while the delicate flower keeps the hue of the elixir as soft as the morning sky. I could imagine strolling through a hillside of green like Gene Kelly in the musical Brigadoon, complete with the singing and dancing. I hope the tea fills you with that energy as well.

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

A fragrant perfume and a light flavor. It’s almost akin to the feeling when one views the blossoms on a sunny spring day. I had this tea while taking pictures at the golf course yesterday actually. Haha. It really reminded me of Southern Belle, a previous fall tea that David’s used to carry, just without the caffeine. That being said I’d recommend it for an iced tea when the weather warms up even further. Happy tea drinking.

Oooh, I did like Southern Belle! I might have to try this!

It’s definitely worth it. :)

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

It’s deliciously minty fresh despite not officially having a hint of it (There’s Spearmint). I am thinking that literally the name sake is what makes it so but the addition of melon probably has something to do with the extra minty quality. In the warmer months I often go to the Delta Ocean Point Hotel for their mani/pedi specials and they serve cucumber water as an option so having a tea like this brings up great therapeutic memories.

It also fit with the timing. Great choice for a Spring tea and I’d gladly recommend it for a refreshing take on the season. Have a great March everyone.

There’s spearmint flavoring in it; another Steepsterite actually asked DAVIDs to find out what that was due to allergies.

Cassie Eng

Thanks for the head’s up. I was talking with one of the ladies at David’s and we were making a guess about it. :)

OMGsrsly

I updated the steepster blurb, but not the ingredients listing box, due to lack of options. :)

MissB

Of course it was you Miss OMGsrlsy, my brain… uh… farted as to who it was.

Cassie Eng

Haha, it happens. It totally does.
