This was a last minute buy last night and boy am I glad I brought this home with me. My only regret is that I only bought 25g of it! Like others have described this is a perfect strawberry covered chocolate tea. The strawberry isn’t overpowered by the chocolate, they work together in a nice balance. Definitely becoming a staple in my cupboard.

Flavors: Berries, Chocolate

Didn’t realize this tea was on it’s way out when I was talked into buying 25g last night. I only really get the licorice taste as an after note with this tea, otherwise it’s just kind of a mild spiced tea for me. Nice, but nothing to write home about. At least in my opinion.

This tea to me is meh. I tried this iced in store and I was so glad I didn’t buy any for home. It’s an OK tea, just nothing amazing. The smell is fantastic and I wish all that flavour had transferred over into the tea itself. I wanted a really lime-y tea and this sadly didn’t satisfy.

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I took a risk and bought 100g of this untested. The concept appealed to me so I hope I don’t regret this one! This tea has some black floaties in it, which the salesperson told me was the vanilla bean. This doesn’t bother me, but if you’re sensitive to this sort of thing be aware. The dry mix of this smells a bit off, very artificial and harsh on the nose. Brewed up the vanilla takes the forefront and the peach is softly in the background.
The taste is rather mild, it reminds me a bit of Mango Lassi with it’s creaminess. I get much more vanilla than peach in this which is a bit disappointing. The peach only really comes out in the aftertaste for me.

Flavors: Cream, Peach, Vanilla

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

I feel about this tea the same way I feel about Mango Madness by Davids Tea. Smells amazing, but doesn’t deliver that fruity punch when tasted. I don’t get a lot of mango or pineapple out of this. For some reason this comes across as peachy to me which I do enjoy. If you like a mild fruit blend then this might just be the tea for you. I’m curious about the pro-biotic effects that the salesperson told me about when purchasing.

Flavors: Malt, Peach

The coconut in this tea overpowers the raspberries, making the raspberries more of a background flavour. This is a nice mild sweet tea, perfect for an afternoon pick me up. I do wish the raspberries stood out more but as a coconut tea this is perfect.

Flavors: Berries, Coconut

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

Reserving judgement on this tea until I give it another go. Had it with breakfast with milk and sugar. Maybe with honey it’ll be better.

First tried this tea in 2006 in Quebec City at the Chateau Frontenac. It then took me almost two years to track down a supplier for it that didn’t cost and arm and a leg to ship. Dearly love this tea with just a hint of sugar.
