drank Sleigh Ride by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Hmmm dry this tea smelled just like forever nuts. The taste is a bit hard to describe (and I’ve never tried Kanpe tea), but it was fruity and I guess picked up that oatmeal cookie factor of forever nuts a little bit…with a hint of tartness. But there was a super fancy piece of cinnamon stick in my tin which was neat.

It was an enjoyable day 10 cup of tea to have last night, but it’s nothing that I would rush to the store to try. It doesn’t really stand out as a unique tea, but maybe I would need another cup to make sure.

Hmmm. I’m really disappointed and I never thought this day would come, but I think this is the first cup of DAVIDsTEA that I try and don’t like so much! I’m really not a fan of licorice, and even less of a fan of pepper, so I was a little bit worried to try it out on day #9 of the advent calendar.

I didn’t really get the licorice taste, which was nice – but it did end up tasting like a peppery cup of mint tea :( And it’s a shame because I LOVE mint…so I added a sprinkle of sugar, which made it more bearable, but I don’t really want to make the other cup left in this mini sample tin. So sad :(

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

This tea is just divine! Like others have previously mentioned, it’s so smooth and creamy-minty-delicious. I find it tastes better and better as the cup cools down a bit. I could and would drink this every day! Definitely getting me in the mood for the holidays and the first snow – when I will hopefully be curled up with a cup on my couch :)

It makes me a little bit anxious for the end of holidays though, when it will start disappearing…eek!

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Absolutely amazing. I think I will be dreaming about this one until I can have my next cup tomorrow. This smells exactly like Terry’s Chocolate oranges and tastes a heck of a lot like them too! I honestly have to say that this is the most chocolatey tasting DavidsTea I’ve tried yet.

Must must must!

(Also, not bad upon re-steeping!)

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Really warm and tasty tea. This reminds me a lot of the Second Cup Holiday blend, but better. I’m normally not a fan of pears, but I don’t find it takes over too much, so I don’t mind it. The cranberry flavour really comes out nicely too. This is the perfect fall to winter transitional tea.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Today is rainy and blah so I decided to keep this as a hot cup of tea even though it is screaming to be iced. I know people might be hesitant to drink this hot, but it’s really good! Really warm, sweet, and creamy. Really nice.

I have never tried lime bang or any of the other lime teas from DT, but I really like this one. It kind of reminds me of Dreamsicle for the creamy and sweet factor, but it’s pulled off way better. I really hope they keep this one around – I think i’ll be craving it from time to time.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Hmm it’s kind of sad because I was discouraged by the salesgirl from buying a bigger quantity because she said it smelled like paint drying and warned me not to let it steep for too long or it would be too full of caffeine…so I only bought enough for a few cups. The first cup I steeped I forgot about and had to dump, which was sad. Finally, after I re-steeped a hot cup of it I thought it was really nice. It tastes like peachy juice and gave me a nice boost. No taste of paint thank god! I’m sure it would be great iced.

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

Cold 911 has been my best friend for the past few days. An unexpected mini-cold hit me at the worst time possible and I needed instant relief. The smell of the tea is incredible and strong with mint and eucalyptus – instantly clears your sinuses even if just for a brief moment. I really let it steep for over the recommended time thinking that it couldn’t get too strong and I needed all of the help I could get. The taste is really nice. It was much more mild in the medicinal quality and just nice and sweet minty with a nice touch of orange at the end.

This tea definitely helped me feel more comfortable while I was sick and my cold is mostly gone now. For fun, I also tried mixing it half half with the Immunizer for an extra healing kick and it tasted really nice!

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
41 tasting notes

I kind of really like this tea – it’s growing on me with each cup. It smells like delicious, sweet buttery popcorn and it tastes like it smells. I don’t really pick up on the maple so much as I do on appley-sweet (but that’s okay because I’m not a fan of maple…). Also, the green tea taste is mostly absent. Like everyone says it is a bit on the weak side, so I just steep it for 5-7 minutes.

This is great when I’m craving popcorn or as a nice dessert alternative from the usual chocolatey or rich flavoured dessert teas from David’s. Yumm!
