This tea has an heavenly smell. I wanna eat it, wash my hair with it, put it on my clothes, I’m crazy about the smell. And… it tastes what it smells, but in 2 distinct parts. First, a lemon-y flavour. Then, a good blueberry aftertaste. It’s delicious, but I suggest steeping it stronger and longer because – and that’s my negative point – the taste is really too light if you follow the recipe.

Okay this one is good enough! The taste is lighter than I thought but I still liked it. It’s great for the morning.

I really didn’t get what I expected from this one, I’m disappointed.

Dry leaves smell almost exactly like blue raisins. It’s an awesone smell and you want to taste the grapes so much when you drink the tea. Unfortunately, it mostly tastes green tea with a very weak grape aftertaste, which I don’t even get in every sip.

Overall, this tea does not taste bad, you just really don’t get what you would want (I believe you are looking for a grape taste if you are buying grape tea).

This one is a good one! There’s not much to say about it, except that I was expecting too much clove and no, it’s perfect :) I prefer to break the cardamom pod to infuse the seeds, the taste is more present and you know, I only had 3 pods of cardamom in my 25g bag. I added some of my own too, just because I like it :)

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

This one was the TOTD today, so I gave it a try. It was served hot and I liked the cucumber taste, which was the most present. I didn’t buy it because I thought I would wait until next time, until winter is over, because I wanna try it COLD! And I’m sure it’s gonna be awesome! Between us, hot cucumber sound like “mehh..”. So it was nice, but I would rather drink it cold. I will update the rating when I do so!

It’s a nice tea to have in your collection if you like the taste of cinnamon sticks. That’s about the taste you’re gonna get, along with a slight clove flavor. It’s good enough to buy again. I would’ve liked more of the orange taste, though. I thought it was gonna be present but mehh..

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves

Not much to say except it tastes what it announces: chamomile and lavender. Of course, it makes me sleepy so that’s great because I need it so much sometimes. The tea bags are full enough for 2 cups so it’s great to steep in a teapot to share with someone :)

Edit
I always have to buy it, now. It DOES make me sleepy. A lot. Try it if you’re walking around the house all night.

What could I say… I don’t really know why I added this one to my last DT’s order. The name was nice I guess. Oh, and I love peppermint. I’m not sick but I wanted to give it a try today because I went out in the cold, the rain and all that snow and ice. So I felt I needed this.

The dry leaves smell is strong, like Vicks. Once steeped, it’s weaker. I can pick the peppermint and the orange tastes behind the eucalyptus. I guess it may indeed help to feel better when you are sick :)

I haven’t had this one for almost a whole year I think. I was out of stock and a bit reticent to buy again because it’s a bit expensive. I had to order this week so I thought I might take a 50g bag. I think I like it even more than I used to. Slight taste, very creamy and comforting smell.

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. Basically, I don’t really like the taste of tea if it’s not mixed with anything else. That’s why, on my steepster blog, you’ll always 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 always find a good moment for a cup of tea. Sometimes it will replace my morning coffee, sometimes it will give me a little extra when I’m working on my university essay. I also love to drink it at work and before I go to bed. I always have tea with me, just in case!

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.
