I just tried this mate for the first time and I tried it iced (double recipe, then pour on ice in a stainless bottle and shake: instant iced tea). I wanted to add honey, but I was in a hurry so I didn’t. Not surprisingly, this mate tastes what it announces: raspberry and lemon… raspberry lemonade! True, the lemon taste is a bit artificial, but it adds a little pep to it. And the raspberry taste is very good. It’s like a good cocktail, without the alchool and all the sugar. I definitely buy this.

Ooooh, I must say this blend is something! They send it free when you order via website, so I got 1 oz of it and I wish I’ve gotten more! I find it delicious and very fruity. The rock sugar adds something, even if I’m not the add-sugar-in-my-tea person. Maybe I would’ve taken a bit less of the rock sugar in it, but it’s still very good. I added a bit more tea in my tea ball than the suggested recipe and it was perfect.

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA
67 tasting notes

For honeydew melon lovers. To me, this tea tastes lemon and it’s sour side at the start,then something I’m not sure about, then honeydew melon at the end. I like honeydew, so I like this tea. I never ate goji berries, so maybe the taste I’m not sure about is actually the goji?! It’s the first time I drink this tea today, so I can only tell about its taste when it’s hot. I should – and absolutely will – try it cold.

Flavors: Honeydew

At first, you see a creamy pink tea with little white pearls floating on top of it. Then, you taste it and – oooh – what an interesting taste! I love it :) It’s sour, because of the rhubarb, and sweet. It’s always good to have a cup of it, anywhere, anytime! Drink it hot and let it steep for many minutes. I may try it cold and update the note sometime :)

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
67 tasting notes

I bought this tea when it came out and I loved it at first! Then I wanted more and they were always out of stock. Fortunately, I found some at a David’s shop near my house. Now, everytime I’ having this tea, I’m wondering why I wanted it so badly. It’s good, I still drink it, but honestly, I’m still searching for the orange and chocolate tastes. It doesn’t taste what it smells. But you can also don’t care about this fact and just enjoy the tea as it is.

drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA
67 tasting notes

Wow this tea is very juicy and tasty. I bought it because I’ve decided I didn’t have enough fruit teas in my collection – they are so good in the morning! Well this one, I can’t find anything bad to say about, except: don’t steep it twice, it doesn’t work. For those who hesitate between a tea or a glass of juice in the morning, you will be served with Bamboozled because it’ll be like you have both in a cup :)

This tea smells and taste like an apple & spices cake. I was a little unsure at start, but it’s actually good, better when hot enough.

drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I wonder what it would taske like with milk. Anyone tried?

Chizakura

I tried with a splash, and honestly, I actually don’t taste a difference which is just bizarre. xD; I would like to try it as an iced latte, something I never do with tea, but somehow it seems like that would be good with this one. I suspect when it’s full on milk it’d taste very creamy, but it’s actually literally pointless to put just a splash into it a hot cup of this.

MissSholia

Maybe half milk / half water then! I tried the tea cold too, without adding anything, it was good!

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA

This tea isn’t bad at all. I can taste the lime well and a bit of yogurt. I’d say it’s better warm than hot. It’s also pretty good as an iced tea.

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.
