I tried this for my Day 4 of my advent calendar. I generally love black teas, but this one is just not for me. I opened the container and it smelled okay, but didn’t smell caramel-y to me. I steeped it and I tried it and didn’t like it. I tried adding milk but still tasted odd to me. The tea didnt taste like what I imagined salted caramel to taste like. The tea and the flavors are rich, but artificial tasting in a odd way. I think if it wasn’t so rich and strong tasting I might like it more.
17 Tasting Notes
I love this tea! It is so chocolate-y, so rich. It such an complex and amazing blend, it reminds me a bit of Fantasy Island but richer! After your sip you taste a bit of raspberry after taste. The dry leaves smell so yummy, I keep opening the jar to smell it. A plus is that its a Mate which is a good alternative to caffeine!
I tried this for the day 3 of my advent calendar. I have never tried this before and didnt realize there was coconuts in it. I made a Chai Latte by boiling milk and water with the tea with a bit of brown sugar. It tasted amazing, it was very chai! I dont know if I can taste the coconuts with all that chai spice going on but it was delicious regardless! I might just have to buy more since its rooibos tea and I can have it at night!
I tried this for Day 1 of my advent calendar. The smell of the dry leaves is amazing, when steeped it taste so rich and yummy! It tasted buttery-rummy but I dont know if I taste the coconut. I think I am going to try it with almond milk next time! A great tea to start off the advent calendar, David’s Tea!
I got 10g to sample then I got 100g tin of this a few weeks ago. I am now almost done my 100 g tin. This tea is amazing. I wouldn’t say I am a crazy nut lover but this tea is soo yummy. The smell of it in the tin is very almondy with a bit of cinnamon. When brewed it smells just as good. When you drink it you get a bit of tart apple-ness in it then almonds and a bit of cinnamon.
The only problem I have with it is the ingredients are that well dispersed. I brewed a cup which was almost all apple with a bit of almond and no cinnamon or beet root so it was yellow instead of pink.
Thank you Zen tea for the sample!
This tea is so yummy! It has an amazing coconut smell that fills the room when brewed. It has a nice coconut taste that taste almost roasted. A great tea for coconut lovers!
I love this tea! It smells and taste great. Its fruity tasting because of the pineapple and peaches. It gets a bit murky when you brew it. I love that the bamboos cool you it’s perfect for summer. I think it’s very cool there are bamboo leaves something natural and not commonly used. Give this tea a try if you like fruit teas. I would get a bit first to try before committing to a tin. Some people claim it smells terrible but I don’t get that at all, it smells fruity in the tin.
I bought this way back in April when it first launched. I got 100g tin before trying it which I guess i should have gotten less. At first the smell and taste was overwhelming. The taste seemed very artificial but I couldn’t figure out what it tasted like. When you brew this your whole room will smell like the tea. After a few more tries it grew on me and I now like it for the occasional cup with a bit of soy. I wish it was more natural and less artificial. If you love birthday cake and sprinkles and don’t mind artificial tasting tea, this tea is for you!
I have to say this is one delicious tea! It was sold out for a while and they finally had stock late aug. I love this iced, actually it taste odd hot. It is sweet, so you don’t need to add sugar. I don’t think I taste a lot of watermelon. I get more honey dew melons as apples. In my 100g tin there is barely any watermelon pieces but it taste great regardless.
I tried this in the store and it tasted like sweet milk tea. The sweet milk was light but the aroma smells great. I bought this yesterday and I tried three steeps all were delicious. It’s very light but you get the milk aroma and taste. It reminds me of Japanese milk candies. I should stock up, as they are closing.
I was excited for this one, but it wasn’t what I imagined it to be. I was expecting a sweet marshmallow with a bit of spice, but instead it has a strong spice taste, and barely any sweetness to it. I wouldnt buy this again.
Great Nutty tea! I open the bag just to smell it.
I dont normally like nuts, but if i’m in the mood this tea is the one. I love the combination of nut, coconut, raisins.
The black tea is too strong for me. Both times at the store and at home when I brewed it, it was a bit bitter. I can taste the blueberries, but the black tea over powers it. Adding agave helped bring out more of the blueberries, adding soy milk was good too. I wish it was more blueberry, and less black tea-y.
I got at 10g sample of this to try.
First the color is really murky dark green when you brew it. Kinda weird when you look at it
The flavor to me taste sweet but in an artificial way I can’t quite figure out what it reminds me of. I don’t think I will buy it again. I tried it hot so maybe it will be better iced.

I originally got swamp water, strawberry shortcake and Luscious watermelon to try from the summer tea collection. They were okay, nothing special. One day I went in to get my dollar iced tea and the women suggested tropicalia but she was out. Next day I went another location to get my dollar iced tea and they had it so I got a sample size to try. Boy is it good! At first I thought piña colada tea sounds gross, but it taste really wonderful iced! The flavor can be a but mild but you get the pineapple and coconut taste. I went back a few times to get 100g but they have been sold out for a week or so. Finally got 100g yesterday. This tea is heavy with all the fruit pieces so 100g gets you about half a “perfect tin”. I probably won’t be restocking just because it’s heavy and an expensive tea. I would say everyone should try it once! I get more pineapple than coconut taste when I brew it. The left over fruit bits are really good I always eat it :)
The first davids tea I went to didnt have this in stock, apparently it is very popular. The second place I went had it but didnt have it for samples. I decided to go for the 100g since it was a special edition. The canister of jolly jellybean barely had any jellybeans. I ended up with 2 jelly beans in a 100g tin.
At first I was kind of bummed out but then I realize I am paying 7 dollars for 50g and jelly belly’s cost 4 dollars or less per 100g. So not a lost at all, If you do buy this tea and there are not jelly beans, just buy jelly bellys from the grocery store.
I noticed that this tea needs to be steeped longer as the taste is quite mild. I enjoy this tea, it has a nice sweetness to it. The only down side is that it has tiny leaves and when I use my timolino I need to empty the filter then drink, or all the tea will be in my mouth. I think this would be an excellent tea to just leave brewing in the timolino if it werent for the tiny bits.
What I do is I put 2-3 jelly beans and some more additional candied pinapple as I like sweet and fruity makes it super delicious if you let it steep for a while.
