6 Tasting Notes

Green and Fruity is a great tea. It’s probably my favourite fruit tea from DavidsTea with a great balance of flavours and sweetness to it. I tend to eat the fruit pieces after I steep, so get double the enjoyment from this tea. I don’t tend to steep this more than once though because the 2nd tends to be lacking in the flavour department.

This is definitely a tea for the chocolate/mint lover. Not exactly what I was looking for given that peppermint is a tea I tend to avoid, but a fair tea nonetheless.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

I tried Oh Canada on a whim, hoping that I’d have an addition to my dessert tea selection. Cute maple leaf shaped candies, caramel, toffee and maple syrup. All around sweetness in a cup. What could go wrong?

Unfortunately it did go wrong for me. I’m woefully unimpressed by this one, though it does deliver on its promise for maple flavour. I’m going to have to mix this with something else to make it tolerable, or pass it on to someone who can appreciate it for what it is.

Another winner from DavidsTea.

This definitely fills my craving for a good dessert tea. It smells amazing, and has a rich red colour when steeped.

I prefer teas which don’t require the addition of milk or sweeteners, and this definitely delivers. The rooibos and caramel pieces blend to produce a great tea which is sweet and definitely will satisfy your caramel needs.
I try to ensure that I have at least one caramel piece per steep (it definitely helps the caramel flavour and sweetness) but it’s good even without.

Definitely one of my everyday go-to selections, I just can’t get enough of this one.

Definitely my #1 from DavidsTea.
Given the good reviews I saw on Steepster I figured I’d give this guy a try, especially since it has fruit in it. I went with 25g on my first purchase and went back to DavidsTea not long afterwards to get myself a tin.

It has a unique smell to it, the combination of guayusa and fruit makes for an interesting experience. As this tea steeps, it goes from a slight green to golden yellow colour, and smells great. If you were unimpressed by the scent, though, fear not. The taste is what truly wins you over.
It’s fruity, earthy, refreshing all at once. Definitely fits the bill for naturally sweet. Just what the doctor ordered. It’s great hot, but I will definitely try this iced when summer rolls around because it’s truly amazing.

I can’t speak for the stimulant effects of this tea, because I’ve fallen asleep soon after drinking this on three separate occasions. It’s perfectly fine, though, because I didn’t choose this tea for that purpose. Definitely keeping this one stocked.

This was the one that started me on my tea journey, never to look back.

This is unfortunately not sold beyond select nations of the European Union (namely France and Poland) but it’s truly amazing, especially given that it’s a commercial blend! Its primary components are papaya and hibiscus, but it also contains orange blossoms, lemon grass, orange rind, licorice and rose petals. What an amazing taste that blend creates.
It even gives a pretty good second steep. Definitely a keeper in my book.

Its unavailability is a great pity. I’d keep this stocked among my favourite loose leafs, given the chance.

Profile

Bio

Wasn’t a fan of tea until Lipton Caribbean blend in Jan 2012, and have been on a tea trip since.

I have a bit of a penchant for teas which have a natural sweetness to them, regardless of the base. Given this, rooibos, herbal and green teas dominate my cupboard. Fruity teas and dessert teas, just you wait! I’ll have the lot of you.

I dislike a few flavours off the bat, so teas containing these are unlikely to hit it off with me: peppermint, cinnamon, cherry, raisins.
