Oh Cold 911, you are my cold fighting super hero. I absolutely love this tea. When I breath the steam in, it clears my sinus’s and has a cooling sensation on my throat. This is my go to tea for all sickness (cold-wise).

UPDATE: I have a terrible cold right now, and Im desperately trying to down it with Cold 911. Again, I really love it, but does anyone else have suggestions for cold remedies?

This tea is quite yummy, however I don’t taste any chocolate in it. When its steeped the peppermint seems to be overwhelm all other notes of other things…. Even the pink peppercorns; it ends up tasting like a creamy peppermint tea, which is really nice. Its a great change from a traditional peppermint tea.

UPDATE: As I was reading other reviews, when others have said oily and murky… they are so right! I’m curious as to what makes it oily…hmmm, I guess one of life’s great mysteries. Regardless, I still enjoy this tea.

Oh Cocoa Canela, how I love you so so so much! This tea does not look like tea at all when you look at it. It is a variety of twig like shapes, flakes, chocolate chips and other unidentified objects covered in cocoa powder. I have to admit, that I have not had this tea straight; I have only ever had as a latte or with milk and a bit of agave, regardless, its absolutely amazing; so much so I have 350g stored away… Shhhh don’t tell.

UPDATE: I had this straight this morning, not as good… best to just stick with a tried and true method of having it as a latte or with milk. Still I absolutely love it!

Wowza! This tea has quite a strong jasmine taste, so strong in fact I have a hard time tasting the black tea. I followed the instructions on the label, but may try it with a smaller steeping time because I found the jasmine taste so strong (I used the recommendation of 2 pearls). However despite have a bit of an overwhelming jasmine smell/taste, I do occasionally search it out in my cupboard. There are some days I want a tea to be able to rip my socks off because of its strong flavours, this is the one I go to for that.

drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

This is my new favourite! It has a classic oolong taste (floral and smooth) but with a hint of vanilla this tea is heavenly! Add a bit of vanilla agave, and you get a sweet treat that curbs all sweet tooth cravings. In fact, just writing about it makes me want to skip my lecture and make some!

Its also great for multiple steeps. I’ve steeped it 6 times, however the fifth/sixth was not as good. It turned quite spicy/earth, but not in a soothing way.

I really enjoy this tea, however when they say “Mom’s Apple Pie” it doesn’t taste anything like that. When I hear “Mom’s Apple Pie”, I expect to smell/taste vanilla, apples, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice) sugar, etc. With this tea it smells like apples and cinnamon (and thats it). I think the name is what throws people off, but if you think of it as just an apple/cinnamon tea and not an apple pie tea you will be fine; its quite delicious.

Bio

Growing up, I hated tea. Everything about it from the way it smelt to the way it looked absolutely repulsed me. Until one fateful day, I walked past DAVIDsTEA and accepted one of the samples they they to force down your throat. The clouds opened, and the tea angels sang a heavenly tea song. I was addicted. My tea cupboard of wonder contains 63 different teas, and its growing daily. I do not have a tea base preference because when I’m craving a cuppa, I let the cupboard beckon me, and let fate decide. My tea cupboard is nearly famous, since most people ask to marvel it. However, the rules of the cupboard are: you do not talk about the cupboard, you DO NOT talk about the tea cupboard… and its strictly look, don’t touch. My tea cupboard is organized by base, then alphabetized under each category. Some call it crazy, but I call it AMAZING (and maybe a little OCD)
