It’s really hard to get cherry to work correctly for a tea, but this isn’t too obtrusive. A lightly diluted brew when served iced, or full-bodied when served warm, both complement this tea well. Beware of temperature, as this easily burns, and the tannins will ruin the flavor! Fairly mellow, floral, and thirst quenching.

drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by David's Tea
23 tasting notes

After DavidsTea’s Vanilla Orchid Oolong won me over, I was really excited to pick this up during my most recent jaunt to the shop. I had earned two free oz of tea, and considered this to be the perfect opportunity to snap up some of this tea. It’s exactly the type of oolong I like – smooth, creamy, buttery, and very slightly nutty. Yum!

Preparation

drank Tie Kwan Yin by David's Tea
3 tasting notes

This Tie Kwan Yin is on the higher end of the spectrum for baking and oxidation. Leaf size is smaller than usual, color is dark brown and there is an absence of lighter green shades. Aroma of infused leaves is burnt, nutty, and sharp despite having fairly weak aroma without a large amount of leaf brought close to the nose. Infused leaf is not as well formed as other examples of tie kwan yin and seems to not have been beaten enough in the production process. Liquor is clear and pale gold in color . Taste is buttery, toasty, and nutty. Mouth feel is medium weight and slightly dry. Leaves the mouth feeling dry and slightly thirsty. Tastes best with a large leaf to water ratio and short infusion times.

Flavors: Butter, Nutty

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 1 min, 30 sec 8 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

drank evergreen by David's Tea

I have tried Evergreen tea brand recently and this tea helps to lose weight and to get rid of the bloating feeling. Whenever i work out, i always drink this tea right before i go to sleep so in the morning it helps me clear my system out… it works well when it’s hot.

Flavors: Herbs

Now, I usually don’t like pumpkin teas, but i figured i would give this a try!

Its a great pumpkin tea that is not overly powerful. Unfortunately i only had a sample size and the tea went offline before i had a chance to order some more! Woe is me! I definitely hope this is one they will bring back in the future!

drank just peachy by David's Tea
12 tasting notes

This is an odd ball tea to me. Some times it turns out great and others i just dump it down the drain!

While it does taste like peaches I find that depending on how you prepare it it tends to taste overly artificial.

Unfortunately this isn’t one I keep on hand for that reason.

Flavors: Artificial, Peach

drank Genmaicha by David's Tea
12 tasting notes

I am relatively new to green teas. I tend to stick to herbals and black teas.

I got a sample of this from a friend and man, this is a real winner on my part! The tea reminds me of the green tea served at sushi restaurants, so it brings back alot of great memories of eating my favortie food! As soon as i finished the sample i went and bout another 100g!

As much as i love this tea i do find that the smell is a little nauseating, but well worth the taste after brewing!

Flavors: Nutty, Smooth

This is another awesome tea! I always take my chocolate teas with milk and sugar and this is no exception!

The first time i had this was on a cold snowy day in December. My Sis in law said to try it as a tea latte so i did.

Wow! What a kick in the pants! It put that chilly day out of my mind!
This is one that i pull out when ever its snowing. It’s helps pump me back up!

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea
12 tasting notes

I have to admit, i bought this tea a long long time ago. I tried it and didn’t care for it. It’s been sitting in the back of my tea drawer ever since.

I do know alot of people love this tea. Maybe i didnt prepare it right?

I first bought it since I’ve never tasted a kiwi flavoured tea. I was really intrigued and the smell was nice. The actual drink was refreshing, but it wasn’t really my cup of tea. I didn’t dislike it, but I didn’t really like it either. This tea would probably suit someone that wouldn’t mind the dryness in the mouth that I felt after sipping this.

Flavors: Bark, Burnt Sugar, Cantaloupe, Dried Fruit, Fruity, Smoke, Toasted Rice

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 50 OZ / 1478 ML

So a good description of how you felt about it would be “kirai janai desu” ?

I really liked this tea, since it made me feel really festive during and after drinking it. Due to the sprinkles, there’s a sweet aftertaste, but it’s not overwhelming. Not to mention the aroma was great :). It’s in in the top chart of rooibos teas I’ve tried, but, it is not my favourite.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cotton Candy, Sweet

Sweet smooth buttery black tea with subtle black tea flavour with very little saltiness, just enough. Very slight coconut finish. It reminds me very much of David’s Buttered Rum black tea which is one of my top favourites. I drink my tea black and unsweetened. I think I will be keeping this one close by.

Flavors: Butter, Butterscotch, Caramel, Coconut

Preparation

Reminds me of the type of tea they serve at sushi restaurants.Still very good, just a little generic. Very toasty,warm and familiar.

May I suggest TenRen’s version of this tea. It is less generic, more toasty without becoming nauseating.

I’ve never had a wine give me a headache until this one so I figured I’d drink some tea to help. As far as pumpkin goes it’s very subtle. The artificial taste is throwing me off though.

drank Cookie Dough by David's Tea

Thought I would love it, but for some reason I just can’t enjoy the entire cup. I believe it might be a bit too heavy on the walnut taste for a real “cookie” flavor.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by David's Tea
854 tasting notes

Gosh darn it, I thought this would be a sipdown but somehow I never added this sample to my cupboard. It’s fine. IT’S FINE.

It’s heading into winter in little old Hobart town and the air has gotten quite crisp in the last couple of weeks (WELCOME, WINTER!!!). It’s a nice quiet Monday night on the desk at work so I’ve brewed this up to sip while watching My Shows.

Uh… it’s really tasty? Not sure why the negativity from others, I’m not getting any overwhelmingly punchy spice, it all sits nicely and it smells LOVELY. I brewed in a pot with maybe 3/4 hot water, 1/4 steamed milk, added a little bit of honey and yum! Just what I wanted it to be for this kind of weather.

I really liked the smell of this one. The taste ? No so much unfortunately. I’m really sad that I didn’t like it but this one is a miss for me.
