Lovely vanilla aroma, light flavours, highly enjoyable moderately caffeinated tea.

I see some chocolate chips in this little sampler, I feel like I’m in for something tasty, or at least hope so!

Smells chocolatey, little less on the chai side but definitely get some of the black tea in there.

I definitely expected this to have more flavour so I put the leaves back in again to steep a little longer. You get a little bit of warmth from the peppercorns, and can definitely detect the chocolate but none of it is strong. A bit boring in the end but any more steeping would make it way too pepper-y. Ah well.

I think I let’er steep a little long this time, got some sour notes in there. Will have to watch that for next time!

This is a nice morning tea for me because it isn’t really sweet like some of the flavoured teas. Nice black tea flavour that the caramel blends with nicely. I left it to steep a little too long, but a little milk took the bitterness away and let the caramel really shine.

Had this one to-go from David’s today and my, my, my! It doesn’t have a strong aroma, but once you have your first swallow all you can taste is a lovely sweet, nutty, cookie-doughy goodness. I think this is one that I might try to get into my cupboard the next time I get to buy tea!!

I like this tea for its simplicity. Just a nice minty tea, no funny after tastes or confusing mixes of different kinds of mint.

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
29 tasting notes

My partner got 25 g of this last night for us to try this morning. I’m not a coffee drinker, but this has a lovely flavour. You can see the coffee beans in among the leaves, and the colour after steeping makes it look like a strong dark coffee. But the flavour doesn’t knock your boots off, it’s actually very smooth. The blend of the coffee and the pu’erh works really well, and it gets nice and creamy when you add a little milk.

Got a cup to-go from David’s this evening. You can really smell both the chocolate and the mint and unlike some “chocolate” teas I can actually taste it in this one! And it doesn’t suffer from letting the bag just hang out in the to-go cup, which is always a plus when you’re taking your tea for a walk!

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

I had this tea last night while I was at a Girl Guide meeting with some pre-teens. Absolutely delicious, this is a tea where I actually get a lovely chocolate flavour that seems to come up out of the depths to say “Hey girl, did ya miss me?” Definitely on the shopping list for next time…

Bio

Grad student writing a thesis, need I say more? The delightful aspect of taking a break to make a pot of tea has made the process much more enjoyable.

Grew up around Orange Pekoe, moved slowly into Earl Grey and have recently graduated to lovely loose leaf teas. You will see most of those are from DAVIDsTEA, due in part to its proximity to my house!
