This is a nice tea. Dry, it smells more caramelly than after steep. The taste is mainly rooibos with a little caramel. Not strong flavoured, but pleasant after a meal (if you like rooibos teas).

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA

This tea has a nice caramel type smell. The taste is like a mix of rooibos and green tea taste which is okay but not really dessert-like. So this tea is okay but not as tastey as I expected given the description. Worth a try though.

drank Xanadu by DAVIDsTEA

There is a tang for the first 10 minutes or so (hot tea) but the flavor is deeper/richer than typical fruity teas. I think I prefer this to the Berry Up tea (also from David’s Tea) when hot. But both are lovely iced. The flavor is so berry sweet that you wouldn’t have to add sweetener of any kind.

Has a tang to it like a ‘raspberry zinger’ type of tea. But I like it, hot or cold. Just make sure to use the full 2 teaspoons, because I used 1.5 teaspoons to try and get two cups out of the last little bit that I had left and it just wasn’t the same.

drank Luscious Watermelon by DAVIDsTEA

Fresh smell, and a mild watermelon flavor. A real watermelon has more flavor for sure. I can taste the honeydew as well, and that could be why this tea isn’t a strong watermelon flavor (I think honeydew takes over). The strawberry and apple are going un-noticed, so if that’s what you’re looking for, look somewhere else. And don’t buy this if you don’t care for honeydew.
Try this one on ice.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

MMM, aroma is very maple, and taste is rooibos and maple together. I like this one hot. I’ve read that David’s Tea ships to the U.S. pretty quickly so no worries for tea drinkers to the south – don’t be shy, give ‘Oh Canada’ a try!

tastes like sweet grass with a nice fruit scent. Could do this one hot or cold but I think I prefer hot.

Normally I would never think of trying this. I like chocolate but have never had a tea with chocolate in it…But I have a sample…so here it goes….
First, the smell is quite chocolatey. The taste is an equal combo of rooibos and hot chocolate. the chocolate taste becomes stronger if you leave it on your tongue for a few seconds. Strawberry is absent for me.
If you like rooibos and teas with chocolate in them, you may like this one.
I still maintain that chocolate and tea should be enjoyed seperately.

Chocolate teas are AMAZING! My favorite is 52teas’ Mayan Chocolate Chai.
