drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Very sweet. There was a definite oolong taste present but I would have preferred that it was more pronouced. Oolong and pineapple are an interesting combination and I feel that the flavours went well together.

drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

Bland on the sip, reminiscent of metallic taste. Light roasted green taste at the end of the sip with something hinting at a floral flavour. After taste is very roasty with green tea taste.

As the tea cools, I’m getting more of a full green tea taste on the sip; very seaweed-like. Very smooth, light and delightful!

On the second infusion the flavour reminds me strongly of popcorn.

This tea does well for at least three infusions.

This tea feels like a good everyday tea for me.

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

This tisane has a flavour which is exactly what I would imagine an orange blossom to taste like. Light and sweet orange flavour with a hint of an artificial edge to it. The vanilla comes out and is what give it the sweetness. The rooibos flavour is present and balances out the orange flavour nicely- it is a welcoming taste in the mix, giving a slight contrast. I am not really able to taste the currants in this mix; they may be slightly present near the end of the sip.

As it cools, more of the complexity of the flavour is able to come out. The orange has a fuller taste.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

Thin-tasting. Definite sweetness. Rounded, somewhat artificial flavour. Coffee taste really comes out near the end of the sip. Has a watered-down coffee taste to it. I think that I may simply just not be a fan of coffee beans in my tea- I like the bold and creamy taste of actual coffee. Feels heavy and acidic down my throat.

drank Pom Power by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

Tastes very medicinal and very thin close to the end of the sip. Sour and bitter after-taste. This tea tastes like it is trying to be sweet. I think that I may be sensitive to the taste of the hibiscus. I am not able to detect the taste of the white tea. The tea does have a flavour reminiscent of cherry-pomegranate. As the tea cools, I’m detecting some peppery notes in the flavour.

I was served this as the Tea of the Day at my local David’s tea.

This tea was served on ice. I was impressed at how I could really taste the oolong in this one. I definitely need to go back to get a full cup.

drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA

I was served this tea as the Tea of the Day at my local David’s Tea.

When this tisane is served on ice, I am able to better detect the different ingredients. I was especially surprised at the floral tones that I was tasting. This tisane is definitely much better served on ice than hot.

drank The Immunizer by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

Getting primarily the minty spearmint flavour. The taste of the spices trail at the end of the sip. I feel that this tisane should be less complex. I am, once again, getting confirmation that I am sensitive to the after-taste of the lemon grass. I am not detecting any floral or citrus flavours in this blend.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
415 tasting notes

I was served this on ice at my local David’s Tea as the Tea of The Day.

Unique fruity flavour. I’m not sure if I’m just being biased because of the name but this tisane really does evoke images of the stereotypical jungle with lots of trees and exotic fruits.

I was served this cold as the tea of the day at my local David’s Tea.

This tea has a very prominent bitter edge. Very strong essence of lemon and lemon zest
