Seriously, why did DT have to remove this tea from its collection??? I’m disappointed. This was a tea with a very unusual but still delicious taste.

Flavors: Ginger, Peach, Sweet

I love oolong… I love coconut… I love white chocolate… so yeah, it was obvious that I was gonna like it. I preferred the old coconut oolong, though. I still have some so I can compare and I found that the flavour of the old one was a bit better and the 2nd steep was also good. This one is less interesting to resteep.

Ohhhhhh this one I loveeeee! I live with someone who has digestion troubles so I always try to find teas that would help him. This one has great ingredients for the purpose and tastes great! I hope DT will keep it forever :D

I’m quite surprised about the bad score this tea has been given until now. I think it’s really good! My only disappointment is the price: there is very little white tea for the price you pay.

drank Honey Lullaby by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I haven’t rated a tea in a while, but this one is worth the effort. I wasn’t so sure about the smell, but I really enjoy the taste. I always drink a soothing tea before I go to bed and I was becoming a bit bored of drinking the same teas. This one is a very interesting addition to my collection and I REALLY hope the company will keep this tea in the permanent collection.

Flavors: Honey

drank Sweet Lime by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I was just working on a text and I suddenly found it. The taste of this tea. I FOUND IT. It has the taste of a green flat lollipop. Without the sugar, of course. I could say it tastes like a childhood Halloween. I was always SO happy when I could get rare candy colors in my bag. Green was one of them, along with the pink and whites. Red, orange and yellow were way too common. It’s like a boring common item in a video game. I could recommend this tea if you like green lollipops. That’s about it. Green lollipops. But it can be cool, you know, when you feel like eating candies.

Flavors: Artificial, Candy

I received this one as a sampler and, as soon as I opened the package, I KNEW I had to buy some. Its smell is strong and awesome :D Also, the taste reminds me of Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. It’s excellent cold and hot. I would suggest a stronger steep since the recommended quantity makes it a bit weak. Just a bit. Also, maybe it could use a subtle sweetness, but it’s not a big deal.

Flavors: Coconut, Strawberry, Tart

drank Berry Refreshing by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

Before I say anything else, I saw some reviews (don’t remember where) saying that this tea was similar to Blue Lagoon. I had a lot of hope that it would be because I LOVED Blue Lagoon. I didn’t even have the time to order some when it came back for a limited time. :/ Anyway.

Berry Refreshing does NOT taste like Blue Lagoon. If you are looking to buy it because you think it will, you will be disappointed.

Otherwise, without comparing it, it’s a good tea. It tastes like tart berries with a sweet side. I think you get what the ingredients announce. It’s no big surprise. But I like it and I may buy it again.

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I bought that tea, thinking I would be crazy about it because I love peach tea and, let’s be honest, peach and nectarines are quite similar. It’s not bad, it’s just that I didn’t get the nectarine part. It could have been named “some fruit tea”. It’s very okay, it’s tasty and I’m gonna drink what I bought but I don’t find its “little something”. I don’t think I’m gonna buy this one again.
UPDATE : I found a weird aftertaste after trying it again hot steeped but cooled after that. It was very unpleasant to me. I’m gonna drop the rating for that. When I drank another glass from the same pitcher, the aftertaste wasn’t there anymore. That’s nice, but I expect to drink a good iced tea every time, not only from the second half of a pitcher.

drank Serenity Now by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I wanted to try this tea because I’m always looking for new teas to drink before bed. I don’t always sleep well and a relaxing drink is always welcome. At first, I was afraid that the rose taste would be too much. My conclusion is that I found the tea to be more fruity than floral. It was good and I could taste the sour raisin that I also found in Green Passionfruit.
The downside of this tea is that its flavour seemed overwhelming to me. I had a hard time finishing my cup because, after half of it, I had had enough. Maybe I’ll try steeping it weaker next time.
Of course, when I don’t finish a cup of tea, I put it in the fridge so I can drink it later. Once it had cooled, I had a sip. I found it better because it had lost some strength.
I’d say cold wins over hot for this one.
Am I gonna buy again? We’ll see.

Flavors: Raisins

Hi, I’m a canadian woman in the late 20’s and I speak french so I’m sorry for the eventual misspellings!

I mostly drink teas from David’s tea collection because they are more accessible to me. They are also friendly and diversified. I’ve learned to like the taste of tea leaves. On my steepster blog, you used to only find ratings of flavoured, spicy, chocolatey, fruity or herbal teas :) In fact, I was only drinking herbal teas before I discover David’s tea because I didn’t really know anything about tea varieties.

I love trying new teas. When I buy new kinds, I always have a hard time deciding which one I will be trying first.

And here are my ratings:
100 = Cannot live without
90-99 = Excellent, I will NEED to buy again
75-89 = Very good, I would buy again, why not?
70-74 = Good, I would drink if I had some, but I wouldn’t mind not having some
50-69 = Disappointing but still drinkable
0-49 = Erm… No.
