drank Honey, I Dew by DAVIDsTEA

A pretty good melon flavouring. I really enjoy the pairing of white tea with melon flavour. The company that does this combination best, in my experience, is Butiki Teas (very unfortunately no longer in business). I’m having trouble tasting the white tea in this blend, which is the norm for DAVIDsTEA.

Flavors: Melon

My initial thoughts on the chocolate flavour of this tea is that it tastes a bit like a chocolate liqueur. It is a bit mild on the sip with a slight dark chocolately bloom on the aftertaste The chocolate has a bit of the soapy taste that I get a lot with DAVIDsTEA chocolate teas. I can’t seem to properly taste the black tea in this blend which is also common with the flavoured DAVIDsTEA teas that I have tried. I just looked at the ingredients and there is supposed to be peppercorn in here which I absolutely cannot taste (unlike in Chocolate Chili Chai, also by DAVIDsTEA).

Flavors: Chocolate, Sweet

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

Slight smokiness with a bitter edge which seems to be coming from the green tea. The green tea in here seems to be a sencha and, as with all DAVIDsTEA blends, it seems to be of low quality. I can hardly taste the white tea in this one at all, which also seems to be characteristic of any DAVIDsTEA white tea blends. Artificial peach taste present. Heavy jasmine floral flavour which, in theory, would pair well with the peach and white tea tastes but in this brew they are not blended very well.

Flavors: Jasmine, Peach, Smoke

Smoke?! Oh no. I’m probably not going to enjoy my sample of this one then. Thanks for the heads up!

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA
630 tasting notes

Aroma is creamy and chocolately. Aroma translates well to the flavour with light to medium mouthfeel. I am detecting the odd aftertaste of the added stevia extract. I am impressed with the chocolate flavour in this blend! It is creamy and sweet and reminds me of biting into an actual chocolate bar. I generally find DAVIDsTEA chocolate-flavoured teas to have a sort of soapy-artificial taste so this is a very welcome change. The addition of the stevia is very unfortunate. I seem to be extra sensitive to the aftertaste (gives my mouth a bitter topical anesthetic feeling) and I feel that the sugar in the chocolate chips and chocolate curls should be enough sweetness anyway (and then the consumer can add extra sugar/stevia as they see fit). I like the idea of combining chocolate and pu’er. I feel that this chocolate flavouring is more of a “milk chocolate” taste which would probably pair better with a black tea. A darker chocolate flavour would do better in this blend.

Flavors: Chocolate, Sweet

drank Cherry Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
630 tasting notes

Cherry flavour is very artificial-tasting. It seems more like a sugary plum taste to me. The tea base is very mild and, as with many other DAVIDsTEA flavoured blends, is of poor quality. The tea base does come through and is distinguishable as a white tea with the “swampy” flavour that I usually associated with whites. It also complements the flavouring well.

Flavors: Plums, Sugar

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

miss you!

This one is not for me either. Can’t justify spending nearly $12/50grams on something with artificial flavouring…
