I get this one when I need a quick pick-me-up and I don’t have time to make my own. I also get it when travelling. It’s a simple tea, but delicious.
I always get it two milk, one sugar, bag in. One milk never seems to be enough when I leave the bag in. It gets strong quick. And I don’t know about others here, but all the Tims around my area always seem to do really big amounts of sugar. One is sometimes too much. Meh, It’s still good. I still enjoy it.
173 Tasting Notes
I get this one when I need a quick pick-me-up and I don’t have time to make my own. I also get it when travelling. It’s a simple tea, but delicious.
I finally tried this one even though I bought this a while ago. I ordered 100g of this on the good faith that I would love it, like I love cake.
I was not disappointed. The rooibos is the perfect match for this tea. It is a sweet and almost creamy tea. It has a pretty strong vanilla flavour, or almost like a maple flavour. I can see this being a vanilla cake/icing mix. It definitely would curb any cravings that I have. I think I will have to keep a little of this one on hand for those days that all I want is a sweet treat.
Apparently I haven’t reviewed this one yet??!?!
This tea is amazing! I love the name of it. It sounds cool.
The tea itself… the smell is devine. I close my eyes and take a deep breath in and just devour the smell of it every time I open up my tin. It is amazing. It smells sweet and creamy and just all over lovely.
Taste: I always add milk and sugar to this one. It makes it a sweet creamy cup of heaven. I always resteep my tea leaves too ‘cause it’s so good. Even when steeped a little longer than recommended it tastes amazing. I find too, that only sometimes do I get a chocolate taste to this one. Normally I get more of a caramel taste. Either way though, this is soooo good.
I’ve tried this one once without milk (we ran out and I didn’t realize before I brewed this one) and it was still very good. It was sweet and creamy on its own even.
I still add milk to it even though it tastes good without. There’s just something about black tea with milk in it that screams tea heaven to me.
I’m almost out of this one unfortunately… I’m rationing it until the summer collection comes out, then I’ll add it to my order. :)
UPDATE: Apparently I have reviewed it, I just didn’t realize it. :)
Finally tried this one this morning. It’s a sweet fruity tea that is just nice and quite subtle but also very delicious. It has an almost sweet, creamy strawberry flavour to it.
I could see this one working well iced.
Such a simple, unassuming tea, but very delicious.
I’ve been drinking orange pekoe for years, and it wasn’t until I tried a loose-leaf OP that I finally realized what it was suppose to taste like. I found this one to not be too heavy, as long as you don’t oversteep it. And it has the simple but lovely taste of an OP.
I bought 100g of this, so I should be set for a bit with it.
This tea was a bit of a surprise to me.
About four of us went ahead this past weekend and placed our first order with The Tea Haus. I have never tried their teas before but was dying to. The prices alone made me feel like I needed to try it.
The smell of this one is DEVINE! It smelt good enough to eat. It was sweet and creamy smelling. Even my husband wanted to try it, so I made a large steeper full of it and steeped it for the three minutes they recommend.
He wasn’t a huge fan of it; said it smelt better than it tasted (which in some ways I understand). But I’m also the type that adds the milk and sugar to my tea, (Just skim milk, nothing too heavy) so to me it tasted wonderful. I felt it was kinda similar to Check Mate from DavidsTea. Only difference is Check Mate is a bit more subtle then this one. But this one is so delicious! I think I may have to order more of it. It is amazing.
I’m very excited about my new find of The Tea Haus. I think I’m going to have a lot of happy ordering happening in the future with them. And too, since it’s not too far from home, I may have to pop in there when I’m in town.
This tea is almost overwhelmingly pink grapefruit smell when I open up the bag. I couldn’t believe it! I’ve been fighting a headache off and on for the last couple of hours, so I didn’t really know if I should attempt this one but something in me decided I should.
It is lovely! I know I say that a lot about the teas that I try, but that’s such a great way of describing how I feel about it.
Brewed it still has a strong pink grapefruit smell. It also has this rich pink colour that is gorgeous.
Taste… MMMMMMMMM I added sugar. I always add sugar. But it took any major tart flavour that I knew was going to be in there out. It’s now just a nice refreshing citrus-y tea. I bet this one would be nice iced.
So, this one took a bit before I got any real flavour from it. I had to wait until it cooled down quite a bit and then I finally got the caramel/creamy taste that I was expecting… Given too… I did have it with dinner so that might not have helped.
Anyway, I did find it to be a nice sweeter treat. I don’t think I’ll be rushing out for this one, but it’s not bad.
In some ways I wish I had let it steep a little longer, but in some ways, I’m glad I didn’t. The strawberry is lovely as always, and the ginger adds a little extra kick to it which I really like too. But I think I have to agree with some of the others here. I think they need to take a break from the hibiscus. It is good but I find it to be overpowering in some blends, and it leaves a weird after taste.
I bet this one would be very nice without the hibiscus. I almost wonder how hard it would be to take out the hibiscus to try it.
Anyway, I think I may have to try this one iced as well ‘cause I’m sure it’ll taste good.
This one is lovely. Again, this one was bought for me as a gift from a friend.
I love this one. I probably could have made it stronger this time, but I didn’t. I only have so much here at work with me. But it is so refreshing which is good ‘cause I’m thirsty.
This one brews the colour of apple juice almost. And it has a lovely combo of strawberry and lemonade. And what’s nice is the lemonade isn’t too tart like lemonade can sometimes be.
I’ll be sad when this one is gone. I’ll have to enjoy it a little at a time.
Okay. I tried this one again today at work. I can’t seem to like this one at all. I really tried. I might need to try it with milk ‘cause this tea is just unusal to me. I don’t know what to think.
I tried it without the yogurt pieces this time ‘cause I think they curdled or something last time, but I still wasn’t happy with it. I’ll try it again at some point…
I tried this one last night for the first time. I figured that I better give it a try, as my dad bought me a whole tin! (He rocks!!).
I must say though, this tea is totally throwing me off. I’m not too sure if I love it or not yet. I drank it last night with some sugar, but I’m almost wondering if I should have put some milk in it too, which is weird ‘cause it’s raspberry!
I’m going to have to try this one again before I fully review it…
So, I ordered 25g of this and I also got a small sample with another online order that I made. I decided to try this one at work, so I brought the small sample with me.
This one tastes like Swampwater. When I smelt it in stores, I didn’t even put the two together, but now that I’ve tried it, it is amazingly similar. I love swampwater too, so that’s good. I didn’t end up getting any of the jellybeans in the sample that had, but I’m going to go ahead and buy some from the bulk barn and add them to my tea. I want to know what it tastes like with them. I bet I definitely wouldn’t need to add sugar after those things disolve. haha
Hoping they keep this one around for a while. I might have to order a tin of it at some point.
I bought this one sometime last year and after trying it a couple of times, I realized that I don’t care for walnuts that much. So I ended up giving it away to my coworker who fell in love with it. I didn’t think I would ever have it in my collection again after that… that was, until a few weeks ago when I went to Davidstea in London with my husband.
My husband has been amazingly understanding and supportive of my love for tea. He is patient with me when I tell him about more teas that I love and want to try and when I have to rearrange the cupboard for the fifth time/twentieth time to make it all fit. So when I asked him if we could go to Davidstea on the way home from seeing his family, he said absolutely. I got a bunch of small amounts of the spring collection, as he looked around. He found the glass noble travel mug and decided to buy it, which surprised me only ‘cause he doesn’t drink much tea to begin with… and by much, he doesn’t usually drink tea at all.
When we were about to leave, the lady helping us asked if we wanted any tea to go. I got an iced Pow Power, which was amazing, and he decided to get a hot Toasted Walnut, which again, surprised me, but was happy to see him trying something different.
He LOVED it. We ended up buying 100g of it for him online a few days after we got home and he just made his own cup of it this morning (we just got the order yesterday). So for that reason alone, I will keep this one in the cupboard for him to enjoy. :)
And while we were waiting for the tea to come in, he tried all sorts of other teas and have a few others that he loves too! I’m very excited to see him enjoying tea.
The smell of this one is absolutely amazing! It’s a punch of flavours all coming at me at once. It’s a strong smelling tea, which is awesome.
So I made a cup of this and added my usual milk and sugar and it’s so delicious. It’s so chocolately, and sweet. The chili flavour isn’t too powerful, which is kind of nice too. And as with all chai teas, it also has all the usual chai spices.
My next cup will be without milk ‘cause I want to see what it tastes like on its own. If it’s amazing with milk, it’s probably amazing without too. I’m so glad my husband wanted us to get this one!
I had this one from the store as a take out iced tea, and I loved it.
It was a bit tart, but she added some agave to make it less and the pomegranate was lovely. That’s the main flavour that I could taste. I’m not too sure what silver needles taste like, so I don’t know if I could taste them or not, but as a whole, I enjoyed this iced tea.
Okay, so I’m not going to rate this tea yet.
I brought a small sample of this one to work with me to try and I thought it was very strange looking frankly. I didn’t know what to expect. So I made the tea, and I’ve tried it… it’s so weak… And then I looked at the pic of it again, and well, I know why. I only ended up steeping the fruit. The sample that I brought from home didn’t have any black tea in it. haha that would be the problem!! I only had the fruit. And while I still am getting a somewhat nice flavour from it, it definitely isn’t what I think this tea is suppose to taste like.
I’ll try again at home. This time WITH the black tea leaves in it.
I have had a bad tea day. I don’t know what’s going on. Maybe it’s cause I went to the dentist this morning, but nothing has turned out right today. I made two separate batches of Check Mate (from Davids) and burnt them both! This is the first time I’ve done this, so it was really bothersome to me. I love Check Mate! Don’t worry, I haven’t given up on it, I will make it again and love it. I’ll just be sure to not burn it next time. I think I need to get a tea thermometer.
Any-hoo, then went on to make another tea that I loved in the past from another company, and it wasn’t good either! I just couldn’t get it to turn out. This made ma really sad.
So, finally I jumped over to this tea. My goodness! This is exactly what I needed. It is sweet and lovely and I added a mess of sugar to it, but I don’t care. I wanted something sweet and yummy and this did the trick! Finally a tea turned out today! And I don’t even care that it’s after dinner and I’m drinking a black tea. I needed something to work out!
Why can’t this tea be permanent…? Oh lovely pepperminty tea. I love you… Next year, if you come back, I will be purchasing more of you.
So I’m trying this tea for the first time today at work, and I think I made it too weak. I do get the amaretto taste from it, but I don’t find it to be that strong. I would have loved a stronger kick of flavour. I’m going to try it again before I rate it though. I think I need to make it a lot stronger.
Had this one again the other day with the girls at work. I made it very strong, and then added milk and sugar like I did with Santa’s Secret. It was amazing. Again, it was a lovely creamy candy cane of sorts but with a chocolately touch to it. Absolutely lovely. Almost like a chocolate mint patty!!
This tea is quite nice. The first time I drank it, I only noticed the graham cracker taste, and a little of the marshmallow.
Today, I can taste everything: the marshmallow, the graham cracker, the chocolate… It’s delicious. :) I think adding milk definitely helped too. It added a creaminess to it.
I like it! :)
Yummy! I love Green Rooibos teas. And this one is amazing. I absolutely love it. It’s sweet and lovely. It’s gotta be a staple in the cupboard forever.
I had this one this morning/early afternoon. Unfortunately, I didn’t really find this tea to be too memorable. I was struggling to taste the white chocolate pieces. But that also could be because I thought it was a dark chocolate in there… Oops!! Anyway, I did like that it did have a bit of a kick to it. Not in the hot spicy way, but it had an almost zing to it.
I’m not too sure if I’d buy this one again, as I have a few other chai teas that I do enjoy a bit more, but it was lovely to get to try this one. I might try what the other reviewer did on here and steep it longer just to see what happens. Maybe I’ll love it more when I do.
So, this is one from my advent calendar from December that I didn’t try. There were a few that the day I was suppose to have them, I didn’t want to try them, so they have been hanging around since, just waiting and hoping that I’ll find them, and want to try them.
Anyway, so I finally tried this one and it lovely. I agree with a lot of the reviews I read so far about this one. The lemongrass definitely was the main flavour coming through on this tea. But at the same time, I love lemongrass, so I don’t mind. I can’t really pick up much on the other flavours though. Like said before, the lemongrass is the first and really only flavour that you taste. Although, there is a bit of a lovely, subtle zing to it too, that I’m enjoying.
I’m having this one without sugar, which is unsual for me. Normally I add sugar to most of my teas, but this one I didn’t think of it, and I’m glad I didn’t. It’s so lovely on its own. Now I’m going to have some Three Lemon Green again, just to see how they compare.
