drank Hibiscus Punch by DAVIDsTEA
174 tasting notes

Dry Leaf Nose: Follows the liquor with the tartness of hibiscus, yet holding a sweet and fruity note.

Liquor: Clear, deep red liquor with the tartness of hibiscus yet holding a sweet and fruity note.

Flavour: The tartness of the hibiscus permeates the whole, yet still allows the very fruity-pungent and sweet notes of the other ingredients a fair share of palate space. The spices are very well balanced and add to the overall experience without revealing themselves as individual notes. The blend has a definite sweetness in the finish.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank The Spice is Right by DAVIDsTEA
174 tasting notes

Dry Leaf Nose: A definite spiciness, complimented and enhanced by the sweet orange notes.

Liquor: Golden liquor with a nice, zesty spiciness.

Flavour: Our take on the classic Orange Spice tea. A perfect balance of cinnamon and cloves, without allowing either to take preference over the other. The green tea is apparent in the lively mouthfeel and the chili pepper brings a little heat to the blend.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Dry Leaf Nose: The mint is prevalent with the chocolate coming through in the background.

Liquor: Dark red brown liquor with a minty tea aroma followed by a cocoa chocolate note

Flavour: The rich chocolate and tea notes are heightened by the peppermint. This classic flavour combination reaches a new level as the tea adds a richness, liveliness and caffeine kick to the blend.

Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet, warm spices with a hint of lemongrass and coconut. The cinnamon comes forward in the spices and some cardamom notes. The teas are evident but play a minor role in the nose.

Liquor: A lovely and clear yellow gold liquor with the aroma of warm spices and coconut. Sweet and round with notes of lemongrass.

Flavour: A sweet and complex overall flavour, filled with warm spices and a hint of lemongrass. Delicate and smooth in the cup.

Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet mint with creamy white chocolate notes.

Liquor: Rich brown and somewhat opaque liquor. If short steeped, the colour can be a greenish brown – also lovely.

Flavour: A rich mint flavour tempered and sweetened by the creaminess of white chocolate. Exceptionally rich for an herbal blend and very full flavoured.

drank Spiced Fig by DAVIDsTEA

Dry Leaf Nose: An intoxicating aroma of figs and spiced fruits.

Liquor: Brownish-red liquor with fig and spiced fruit notes.

Flavour: A rich and enticing aroma/flavour. Spiced fruits mingle with a sweet fleeting flavour of sliced figs, dried and fresh. The combination is very much like a delicious holiday cake.

drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
174 tasting notes

Dry Leaf Nose: Gingerbread and dark molasses.

Liquor: A rich, reddish-brown colour with notes of gingerbread and molasses.

Flavour: Very true to good old fashioned gingerbread. The flavor holds well on the palate, lingering but not cloying. There is a slight buildup of the flavour as the cup is consumed with the ginger becoming more prominent.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec

Sounds delicious!

This is one where the flavour sneaks up on you. On first taste I thought it was okay, but it is actually the taste it leaves which is even better.

Sadly, this tea didn’t do it for me. The combo of stevia and licorice made it too sweet for me.
