drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
72 tasting notes

I still love this tea, but have discovered that the secret to its infusion is by using tea bags, rather than an infuser that lets the leaves open up. I know all those things about surface area, resteeping, blah blah but this one tastes best when confined :-) Only then will you get the taste of vanilla cupcake!

drank Cacao Tea by Herbal Infusions
72 tasting notes

I am so glad I bought some of this, and need to go back for more ASAP. This is amazing!! Tastes just like dark chocolate. In a tea. I like that it’s JUST cacao, because I’m getting tired of those chocolate blends and really just needed something like this. I love it. Like Jessie, I can’t wait to do splendid things with this tea.

drank Hot Lips (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
72 tasting notes

I legit cannot stress enough that I am going to STOCK up on this tea before it’s gone. This tea is amazing – so much cinnamon, so much heat!!! I truly love it, and want to drink it every single day until I die. I don’t know how much I’ll have to buy to make this possible. I’ve considered buying 1kg. I grabbed a cup of this today, and was sad when I finished it. Must… Have… More… Hot Lips. Thanks to DT for coming out with a tea that’s perfectly complex without an excess of ingredients!! It tastes the same as filling your mouth completely with cinnamon hearts.

Dear Goji Pop,
You are so yummy, just like bubble gum,
Sometimes you’re sour, but mostly you’re sweet.
Will you marry me?

So excited to try this one! It’s on the list for the next time I’m really productive at work or deserve a treat for some other reason!

AliPants

Oooh I’m excited for you! Don’t oversteep it – the hibiscus can get quite bitter!

Kittenna

Thanks for the tip! I’m notorious for steeping herbal teas FOREVER because often you get extra sweetness or different flavours out if you do that. And I like my teas strong, usually. My boyfriend was already taunting me with Goji Pop as he bought it a week or so ago and loves it (and he lives two provinces away, so I can’t mooch some off him!)

AliPants

I’m like that with my herbals too! That’s cute that he made you want it, I wish my boyfriend drank more tea!

Kittenna

My boyfriend is working on weaning himself off pop and sugary coffee in favour of tea. So impressed; hopefully it continues! At least he likes it :D

AliPants

That’s so cute, you guys can share tea recommendations now! maybe that day will come for my boyfriend. I don’t think he’s realized yet how bad the pop/coffee combo is. I keep trying to get him to drink tea, but he just won’t! If he does, he likes it packed full of sugar anyway so he might as well be having pop!

Kittenna

Haha, unfortunately the boy doesn’t have very discriminating tastes sometimes (i.e. he likes most things), but hopefully he can report to some degree on what he tries! And then bring me some when he visits in a month :D Admittedly, I don’t know how much sugar or milk he puts in his teas… I know ones like Earl Grey get a lot, but he claims he’s trying to drink them without sugar. Cream of Earl Grey is better, I think, and I would hope he’s not sweetening something like Goji Pop, as I found it quite deliciously sweet at the end!

AliPants

sweetening goji would be tragic. more tragic than boys with discriminating taste.

drank Mango Madness by DAVIDsTEA
72 tasting notes

So yummy!! I took steep.it’s advice and only steeped this for 30 seconds, and it turned out perfectly. Sometimes I think that this tea has a strange taste, but as it cooled, that taste went away and it was pure citrus-y delight! I was also happy because I got a good resteep out of it! That took away some of the bitter feelings that my wallet was holding against this tea.

steep.it FTW! It’s changed the way I drink whites.

AliPants

YES!!! Thanks a bunch for talking about it in one of your reviews- I’ve been using it a lot and love it to death. I have not had ONE bad cup of tea since!

drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
72 tasting notes

Oh me! Oh my!
It’s so funny, the first time I had this tea, I didn’t like it. Now I drink it a couple times a week, mostly in the evening (often happens after my after-dinner tea, and before my bedtime tea). I prefer it hot over iced. If you leave it to steep for a couple hours and then microwave it, it really gets spicy from the peppercorns. Most of the time I can’t wait that long to drink it, but I love that this tea gives the option of such spiciness!. I love the lemongrass-coconut combination – and I don’t even like coconut. The coconut always makes it feel like the perfect tropical beverage! I love this blend, I think it that it works perfectly but definitely crafted for a certain palate. Probably for people who like to drink their Thai food. Speaking of which, I would love to cook with this, too. I also want to boil it on the stove, chai style, and see how it turns out.
Anyone tried this yet?

Ahhhhh. The delghtfully tasteful Cinnamon Rooibos Chai. I still remember the first time I had this tea, it leaves such an incredible impression. This is such a warming cup of tea, I could drink it anytime, anywhere. I would drink it much more if it weren’t for the horrendous acid reflux that this tea provokes… >:-O
Dropping the rating just a little bit for this tea’s negative effects.

that sucks. I like the West Cape Rooibos Chai by Rishi if you ever get the chance to try it.

AliPants

Ooh! I checked it out – looks like it only retails in the US! :-( I’ll keep my eyes open for it though!

TeaBrat

I normally just order it from their website but I don’t know if they ship to canada…

AliPants

True! I try not to order teas online that I haven’t tried yet.. I’ve been finding that I get stuck with tea I won’t drink! Plus there’s nothing better than going to the store and smelling everything yourself :-)

WOAH… Strange. This tea is the epitome of the “too many ingredients” syndrome. I don’t know what’s happening here. Not one flavour stands out, but I THINK I can taste the nettle? It’s not a particularly tropical-tasting tea, so I wonder how much pineapple there actually is… It kind of tastes what I would imagine a cactus would taste like. Maybe that’s the aloe vera? But aloe vera isn’t even listed under the ingredients… You definitely can’t taste the hibiscus.. The liquor doesn’t have a hint of pink to it, it’s more light golden orange. But maybe I didn’t get any hibiscus in my scoop? I’m just utterly confused by this blend. I have nothing else to say but try it only if you’re feeling adventurous.

drank Love Potion Sencha by Tealish
72 tasting notes

Out of the teas I tried from Tealish, this is one of my favourites. I CRAVE the currant/cinnamon combo. Dry, it smells mostly of currants. When brewed, I think it smells like candy :) Really, that’s currants and cinnamon. But it tastes like candy, too! You don’t get much of the sencha, but that’s fine in my books as I’m not so into the vegetative taste, especially when I’m in the mood to drink my candy :-) This tea is definitely a gem hidden within a whole lot of rocks, in my opinion :-) And who couldn’t love such a pretty blend?

I like that these teas are not as sweet, they are more tart and true to flavour. I thought this one was good, but maybe had a bit too much… lime? I’m not sure. I wasn’t sure when I was drinking it, but I wish it had a bit more coconut. This one could easily taste even more like a tropical beverage, waiting to transport you to the beach. That being said, this tea was still fantastic, and would probably be even better iced, which I’m excited to try.

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
