drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

I bought this tea yesterday. I love it. It’s very sweet and it’s a good “fight” between cranberries and pears. I love cranberries so this tea is perfect. I’m not very much into pears but when pears is not the same principal ingredient, i like it! This tea smells wonderful too!

If you don’t like much black teas, you may like this one cause it doesn’t taste much as many others black teas. The blending of this tea is lovely too cause of the big cranberries (even if it’s more difficult to adjust your quantities in the teaspoon).

I drank it as a hot tea but next time i think i’ll try it as a iced tea, it’s probably fabulous!

I just tried this new tea from the Winter Collection. I think it’s the first time i drink a “nutty” tea so i’m not so sure. The smell was very appealing to me since i love bananas but i didn’t know that the taste of the nuts would be so strong (much more than the banana). But i’ll definitively give it another try and i’ll update my review! :)

drank Pom Power by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

The first time i drank that tea, i loved it. I don’t know what happened cause after 1 or 2 cups, i began to dislike it and now i can’t drink it at all. White teas are not my favourites (there is no white tea that i like for now…) but maybe the steeping isn’t done correctly (too long or water too hot).
The smell of that tea is very fruity and the color is cute. If you like white teas and fruity teas, go for it!

drank Snow Geisha by Teavana
46 tasting notes

If you’re sick, maybe you could drink it since the smell and the taste is like eating a complete pack of Cherry Halls Cough drops.
I got to say that for now, i don’t like much white tea (i didn’t find any white tea i like but maybe i will one day!)

This is the second “love at first taste” i found at Davidstea. I got to say that i LOVE every lemon things. And when i smelled that tea, i was like, OMG, it can’t be disgusting! Comfort food exists but comfort teas too and Three Lemon Green is one of my comfort teas. Most of the time, i drink it as a hot tea (in fact i don’t remember if i ever taste it as an iced tea…).
I bought a large quantity of it when one night, Davidstea Facebook page added a big online promotion….1$ for 40g for a limited time (but all the bags you want). The next morning, there was no bag available so i was lucky!

drank Pineapple Kona Pop! by Teavana
46 tasting notes

This is my favourite tea by Teavana (for now!!!). My friend bought it in Boston cause we don’t have Teavana’s in Quebec.
I like to drink it as a iced tea, the taste is very sweet, i can drink it instead of a very sweet and caloric juice. Indeed, you got to love pineapples! That tea makes me feel as i was in Hawaii! haha! :)
Even if the steeping instructions are 5-7 minutes, i steep it 8 minutes and more so the taste is stronger.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

Oh….there is a new tea that i like in town! It’s the 2nd 2011 Winter Collection Tea by Davidstea that i taste (the first was Chocolate Chili Chai) and i like it so much! The smell is lovely, and the taste is too!
If you’re craving for apple pie or apple pieces with caramel dip with a cinnamon twirl, you’re gonna love this one!

I tried this tea at the Trois-Rivières DAVIDsTEA boutique.
I can’t say i dislike this tea, but i can’t say that i love it. It was okay to taste it but i don’t think i’m gonna buy some.
I had some expectations on this new tea cause everybody was telling me this tea was so special and so spicy. Finally, it wasn’t spicy as i expected. The chocolate is interesting.
I like to drink tea when it’s very hot ot very cold. I don’t like much “just warm” tea and this sample was only just warm. Maybe i’ll taste it again but with very hot water…

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

This is the first tea i bought and i loved it.

It’s a Wonderful iced tea and it’s very good too as a hot tea. It’s a fruity tea with a little sour taste (sour but damn good). This tea is my new “juice”. I’m a big Pepsi drinker but since i discovered aromatised teas, i’m not drinking much colas.

The only negative point i can say (and i’m not sure if it’s in my head or what) is that i think that when you have that tea for a long time in your cup, it tasted weird and the “texture” is different. (Note: with my Contigo Cup, AKA the best cup i never had, my tea can stay hot for at least 4 hours).

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

Read my Lips is on my Top 3 this week. I think that my 100g will be finished very soon.
That tea is my first “chocolate tea”. I wasn’t sure at first (even if it was a favourite of every DAVIDsTEA fan…), the description wasn’t appealing to me…And plus, i didn’t like every black tea i tried before so i thought black tea wasn’t for me.
Well, i don’t like to say that but…..I WAS WRONG!
I love this tea! It tastes like chocolate, mint, candy, all of this in the same cup. It’s the Perfect cup to drink in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening in front of the fireplace! :)
