This is my new favourite tea! I was so excited to see this tea on the David’s Tea spring collection – honeydew is my favourite fruit and I needed some more mate variety. This one did not disappoint. It actually tastes like honeydew. It isn’t too sweet which is also great.
23 Tasting Notes
I visited David’s Tea yesterday with the sole purpose to pick up some of the much anticipated Birthday Cake flavour. Needless to say – I was not disappointed, this is one of the best flavoured rooibos, or any type of tea for that matter, that I have ever had. David’s Tea was offering samples of Birthday Cake yesterday in the store, and the store smelled like the candles on a cake had just been blown out. It was fabulous. I sampled the tea, and it was delicious, and bought some to take home. I went home and proceeded to drink 4 cups of it – it’s just that good. Yes, it was a tad sweet, but I do enjoy sweet teas – especially in the form of rooibos! So skip that piece of cake after dinner, and skip right over to this healthy version of the delicious dessert!
This tea is fantastic! It totally tastes like a hot cup of amaretto. It’s one of my favourite dessert teas, as the tea is quite sweet. The almond and coconut comes through in the taste quite magnificently, though the almond flavour is a lot stronger. Smells delicious too!
It’s almost fall… which means the decadent flavours of fall are also back! Pumpkin Chai is back at David’s Tea and it’s absolutely scrumptious. Chai is one of the few tea flavours that I actually dislike, but in the case of Pumpkin Chai, it’s amazing! The tea is more sweet than spicy, so if you approach chai with apprehension, such as myself, you may be able to handle this tea. The caramel and cinnamon are definitely the flavours that shine in this tea.
I tried this tea in the form of a latte as well (steeped with almond milk, and a tiny bit of vanilla), and it was spectacular! Probably the best tea I’ve turned into a latte yet. Yum!
WOW. This tea is CRAZY. I couldn’t resist picking up a bag of Movie Night after smelling it at David’s Tea. It smells EXACTLY like buttered popcorn. I wasn’t sure how the flavour would come out in terms of taste, but it had me at the smell.
Well the taste was just as good as the smell! It really does taste like buttered popcorn, with hints of sweet notes from the apple and maple. Yes, it sounds strange, and if you smell it, you’d probably think the same. But, it really does work as a tea! You get the guilt free taste of popcorn in the form of a delicious tea!
I definitely recommend this tea for those looking for something new and exciting to try. A worthwhile step away from the normal!
This tea is amazing! That is, if you like pear. You can tell right from the first smell of the tea that it’s going to taste like a nice, juicy pear. The pear “pairs” perfectly with the green tea, leaving a delicious, delicate blend.
I’m a huge fan of David’s Tea and was extremely excited to find this delicious sounding tea in the Spring Collection. I walked past the store today, and decided to grab a cup of this. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed. This is one of the worst teas that I have ever tried. Trust me, I tried very hard to enjoy this one with every passing sip – but I could not get past the flavours that did not seem to mix well. What was left was a sour, almost medicinal taste. It smelled GREAT, so when I had a sip, and it tasted like cough syrup, you can imagine my disappointment. I don’t even know how to explain the flavours that came through – it tasted like orange fruit gone bad. I didn’t even notice any chocolate in it. Hopefully the other teas in the Spring collection won’t let me down!
Overall, the mate is very nice. However, I tasted more of the roasted mate than of chocolate. Smells good and tastes good, but more like plain mate. There is a nice after taste that resembles chocolate. If you’re looking for something with a strong roasted flavour, and very little of a chocolate taste, this is a good one.
WOW! I LOVE this tea! Had two cups in a row this morning. I’m a big fan of pu’ehr, but sometimes I prefer the earthy flavour to be masked. This cinnamon tea did the trick. The smell is extremely overpowering – if you don’t like cinnamon, this is not for you. I didn’t taste much in terms of the orange flavouring as the cinnamon is very powerful, but the spiced variety of orange is noticeable. Definitely an added spice in this one, and it resembles the taste of a cinnamon heart as the name implies. I usually stay away from spiced teas, but the spices used in this particular blend are lovely!
A great tea to warm you up on a cold winter day!
So I finally made my first 52teas/SweetHoneybush purchase and decided to go with Root Beer Float! I was super excited to try this herbal, and I was definitely not disappointed. The herbal itself is even beautiful – with the jasmine and lilac blooms. The honeybush smells very much like a sweet root beer syrup, and I was worried that the taste wouldn’t follow through. But it’s great! The herbal blend has a dull root beer flavour and it’s very mellow. The roasted flavour notes of the honeybush also come through, which makes this a great base for a root beer flavoured tea! A great blend that I would recommend to honeybush – and root beer – lovers alike.
So delicious! Queen of Hearts has a subtle flavour to it, which does not overpower the green tea itself. It’s very light tasting, and the added sweetness masks the more grassy tones of green teas. It’s quite nice if you’re looking for a flavoured green tea that is only lightly flavoured, so you can still get the essence of the green tea base.
This is a great tea for flavoured green tea lovers! At first I was thrown off by how sweet it was, but when it’s steeped nice and hot it is very yummy. Brings back memories of caramel dipped apples – but the healthy version!
This tea is strange. I know, an odd thing to say in a ‘tea rating,’ but it’s true!
Imagine stepping out into a rose garden complete with flowers that have freshly bloomed. Now take a deep ‘imaginary’ smell in this garden. This is basically what Garden of Eden smells like. Now imagine drinking flowers.
Once you get passed this, the tea is really quite lovely, just hard to get used to as a result of the overpowering perfume scent of the flowers.
If you’re into floral tea and enjoy white tea, this could be a worthwhile trial though!
This tea is absolutely fantastic and is quickly becoming a new addiction of mine. It’s pretty much the only chocolate flavoured tea that I have tried that I have enjoyed so far. I am a huge fan of green rooibos, so the addition of it to “Super Chocolate” makes it all that more appealing.
This is one of my favourite teas of all time – there is nothing not to LOVE about it. From the aroma, to the taste, it’s absolutely marvelous. It even looks nice too!
The name says it all in terms of the flavour. This tea creates the aroma of caramel, and has a delicious, nutty taste. As a side note – it’s fun to pick out the chunks of caramel and eat them too.
I used to work at Teaopia, and by the end of it I couldn’t stand the smell of most teas after having to spend the day showing them to customers. Creamy Nut Oolong is one that never got old, and will always be one of my “go to” teas.
I also swear by this one for stomach problems. Though oolongs in general are great for digestion, this one just so happens to help me!
Overall, this is an AWESOME tea for a flavoured oolong, and I highly recommend trying it. Just take a smell of it and you’ll be addicted!
I enjoy drinking this tea in the morning for a nice pick me up. The hibiscus and apple pieces gives the herbal a pleasant taste. However, I would much prefer this blend without the peppermint, as I’m not a fan of fruit combined with mint. Since the peppermint isn’t that strong I still enjoy this herbal blend, in fact, it is waking me up as I type this !
This particular Genmaicha has a stronger “roasted-like” flavour than others that I have tried, so it was a great addition to my tea collection.
Though green tea isn’t always my first choice, I’ve always loved the incorporation of the popped rice. I definitely was not disappointed by Argo Tea’s version. Definitely worth trying if you’re looking for a more bodied flavour.
I’ve only got a few white teas in my cupboard right now, and this is one of them.
Lightly and delicately flavoured, it’s a delicious blend of white tea and berries. Though I’m not one for buying into “super foods/fruits,” like acai, I still enjoy the taste of this delicate white tea. The flavour is definitely unique to acai, as it is no where near as sweet as some of the other berry tea infusions I have tried. This tea is more mellow, with a very mild, almost tangy-like aspect that brings out the powerful, yet delicate, aspects of white tea. Definitely a great choice if you’re into lightly flavoured white teas.
Nursing a cold, I’m actually on my third cup of it right now. Definitely helping with the pain in my throat and the soothing flavour is exactly what I needed!
Milk Oolong remains in my top five favourite teas, and I love the one from David’s Tea. From the mythical story about the tea, to the taste itself, this tea is hard to beat. It’s also great for re-steeping, making the initial expense worth every penny.
The greatest part of this tea is that nothing is even added to the tea itself – so the unusual, amazing flavour of the oolong is completely natural. The flavour comes from very specific conditions in weather caused by a rare, sudden change of temperature during harvest.
The smell of the tea itself comes across as a strong milky odor. The taste keeps this milk flavour with some hints of light orchid, a usual characteristic of oolong. To me, this tea tastes like milk and cookies – a delicious combination reminiscent of a shortbread cookie.
Try it – you won’t be disappointed!
This is by far one of my favourite herbals that I have tasted so far.
When I first tried yerba mate I was thrown off by an unpleasant taste, though after tasting Raspberry Riot I now know this was due to the blend I had originally tasted it in.
The taste of this mate is a pleasant mix of sweet and sour. Even though some may not usually enjoy tart flavours, the lovely taste of the fruits coupled with the green mate would make it difficult for anyone not to like this blend.
This mate is one of my favourite pick me ups. The tart, tangy flavours of the fruit serve as an explosion of flavour and the mate acts as the ultimate mateine/caffeine kick.
Definitely worth trying if you’re into a very flavourful herbal!
This blueberry flavoured white tea is exquisite. I’ve already got many people hooked on this delicious blend, even those who were not a fan of fruity teas!
This tea is delicately flavoured with the delicious tastes of blueberries. The fruit does not overpower the fine taste of the white tea, instead highlighting the taste of the delicate tea. As a fan of blueberries and white tea, this tea is by far one of my favourites.

Though I used to not be a huge fan of Rooibos, I decided to give the Tiramisu flavour a shot. And my thoughts? I absolutely love it!! It has a hint of sweetness that brings out its delicious flavours. This blend has got me into rooibos too, and it’s practically all I drink lately. You could say it was my “gateway” into the amazing tisane. I love drinking this in the evening when I feel like something sweet with no caffeine.
Just smelling the beautiful blend from David’s Tea was enough to get me sucked in. As a fan of tiramisu, I figured I had to try the tisane, and it was definitely worth the trial.I highly recommend this tisane for Rooibos and non-Rooibos lovers alike!
