This tea is delicious. I had my first cup this morning. I didn’t think this tea tasted like Oikos Lime at all! It was sour, but not artificial. With a little agave to smooth out the harshly sour notes (understandably since it is two sour flavors mixed together) this tea tasted amazing with the green tea aroma clearly coming through.

The first thing I noticed was the lime. Oh sweet lime. It was fantastic! The second thing that came through was the agave (optional) so this tea was well balanced.

Ultimately, this tea was great. I can definitely taste the difference between this and like a lemon tea. Very nice. This tea showcases the true difference between these two highly acidic citrus fruits.

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA

When I smelled this in the store, I was kind of skeptical. I don’t know why I picked this instead of Mango Madness… The smell however being spot on: with darling notes of coconut lifted with juicy citrus, was amazing.

However, when I took this tea home, I was eager to try this tea. It disappointed me. Do you guys know what green Thai curry tastes like? It is delicious. However, my problem with this tea is that it tastes like green Thai curry. Tea curry. Nasty….

Overall, I could finish this tea but I would never look at it again.

Haha, I loved that this tasted rather curry-like. The blend of flavours was perfect for me!

I’ll keep this one short. It’s nice. Tastes like Twinnings Earl Grey but more expensive. I cannot taste the creaminess of it.

Overall: Good, nothing special, can find the same for less.

Wow. Just… Wow! This tea is so nice. To the nose it is so pleasing, it is very fruity yet creamy. It is very nice.

When I brought this home, I loved the color. It wasn’t just pink, but it was electrifying red. It looked almost as good as it tastes! My first sip was actually terrible. I couldn’t swallow it because I didn’t add agave. It was just plain nasty that I almost threw up. It was like a super tart pink lemonade. After I put a little agave, the magic happened. It was an amazing transformation. I could taste the strawberry and the rhubarb, which couples amazingly with the yogurt flavors.

Overall, I will definitely stock up on this tea, as long as I have a little bit of sweetener on me.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
21 tasting notes

This tea is okay… Nothing too special. For a tea named after nuts, all I could taste is the apple pieces and almonds. I was hoping to taste the punch of nuts that I smelled in the store.

When I brought it home, I was actually a little disgusted by the color. I didn’t like the bright pink look of this tea because it looked very artificial for nuts. I expected something that tasted like peanut butter, not apple cider…

Overall this tea is good. I can finish my cup but I definitely won’t store up on this tea.

I actually didn’t do a note on this on my first drink, but now I am drinking it as I am writing my review, and it just tastes WAY better than my first try. When I smelled it in store, it was magic. Just plain magic.

When I brought it home I was shaking, that is just how excited I was to try this. Being only sixteen I can’t add liquor to my tea (that I can admit in public anyways)… Haha… I had it iced, and I added in some extra stuff… But it was spot on. Pure Pina Colada. It was amazing. I am going to be stocking up on this tea until the day I die, the first sip was reminiscent of the strong pineapple, following up with the slight creaminess of the coconut. Not to mention the heart sprinkles adding a little hint of sweetness.

Overall, this could be one of my top five.

Holy yum. I bought this tea because I’m kind of obsessed with blueberries. When I smelled it, I didn’t get the jam flavor in it but I got a ton of blueberry flavors.

When I took my first sip I thought: “Whoa! This is fantastic!” This tastes like TrueBlue (blueberry juice) but this tea is not sweetened to death. It is a Lipton-La La Lemon scenario. My only complaint is that on the second steep, it lost a lot of it’s magic.

Overall though, it is definitely worth stocking up on.

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
21 tasting notes

When I first smelled the dry tea, it was reminiscent of a super creamy dreamy creamsicle with a bubblegum undertone. It was very pleasant.

When I brought it home and I brewed it, the first and only flavor I got was bubblegum. There was absolutely no orange to it. I can taste some of the natural fruity rooibos flavors but the flavors were not orange. I was kind of disappointed because I wanted to try a creamsicle tea.

Overall it is very good because of the bubblegum flavor. However, the flavor is good for the first few sips. After the first few sips the flavor got very strong and it tasted very muddled in my mouth.

HOLY GOOSE DARNIT! When I first smelled the dry tea, it smelled like I just pulled the chord and a bucket of passion fruit juice fell on me. It was so sweet, sexy, and smooth smelling that I just fell in love with it then and there. Moreover, when I steeped it, the tea turned a brilliant pink color reminiscent of a pink lemonade I might have had a few days ago. My first taste of this tea was just absolutely AMAZING!

I took my first sip and immediately I got a punch of hibiscus and apple which balance each other out (from my experience drinking most teas, hibiscus seems to be very hard to get right) so this tea is definitely a jewel. After the initial sour punch, the fruity passion fruit notes kicked in which elevated the sour flavor.

10/10! Perfect! Parfait! Perfekt! Perfetto! Perfectus! Perfecto!

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA

This was a really nice tea! Not only is it fresh, but the light minty flavour really works to it’s advantage (in short this tea makes sense). I really like this tea!!!

However, I had some concerns with this tea. I really get the refreshing balanced mint flavour but I don’t taste much fruit. I don’t think I find it to be very creamy.

Ultimately, I can taste some other flavours mixed with the mint that gives it a very dynamic flavour. Definitely my favourite mint tea.

*Edit, I just added a little bit if lemon and I realized. My first infusion didn’t have any fruit pieces in it… DOY! I LOVE THIS TEA!!!
