drank Birthday Cake by David's Tea
194 tasting notes

I got a cup of this hot earlier today and made sure I took some notes :P I kept putting off getting this one because birthday cake flavored things are usually gross but so many people said that it was really good so I caved.

Sure enough I was right and I really didn’t like it, on the upside I don’t have it stashed away in my collection though. It was too sweet for me (and I didn’t add anything to it) – it definitely had the baked goods flavor to it, possibly a bit of caramel almost creme brulee (heck this one tastes more like creme brulee than their creme brulee does!) I think it might be good as a latte but that’s generally not my thing. But in the end, at least I’ve tried it!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Cream, Custard, Sweet

I finally acquired this tea from someone on a tea group I’m in, and tried it tonight. I really like this tea, it has an earthy, dark chocolaty taste to it, with hints of hazelnut.
One thing I don’t understand about this tea is there are two different ingredient lists for it. The one I have has no licorice, but yet on another list there is. I’m wondering if it was ‘changed’ like some of the other DT teas I’ve noticed. Cause there’s definitely no licorice in the blend I tried. Not that I’m even a big fan of it anyway… But this tea is really yummy, and a great chocolate tea!

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Earth, Hazelnut

A decent tea; 4 minutes steeping brings out orange flavour; not my favourite chocolate tea, but a nice choice for an afternoon break.

Smells much better than it tastes. The tea is very sweet with a vanilla flavor, but the rooibos is still a bit strong. Glad I only got a small amount of this to try.

Flavors: Vanilla

drank spiced pumpkin by David's Tea
11 tasting notes

I think I’m one of the few white chicks who doesn’t go absolutely bananas for pumpkin-spiced everything. So in the fall, I was surprised to find myself smelling the teas at David’s, and picking out this one. But holy tea bags, am I glad I did. This is an amazingly well-balanced tea. It isn’t too sweet even with the honeybush, maple crystals and cinnamon, it’s tastes like homemade pumpkin pie without all the sugar. It’s not too cinnamon-y, which is amazing because I’m not the biggest cinnamon fan. And it tastes like REAL pumpkin…. like you just hacked one open and baked it – a really good tribute to pumpkin as it should be done without all the sugar or spices.

I finally got to visit a David’s Tea store! I ordered this tea as a latte. It was very good. A nice chocolate flavor with a hint of spicy chili. It was a nice cup of chai to keep me warm, but not good enough to buy for my stash.

It’s alright… it’s not as sweet as I was hoping.
It has a smokey aroma that I’m not too fond of. The straight tea tastes alright, but again a bit too smokey for me.

Turned it into a latte, and it’s passable but I wouldn’t buy this again. Smokey aroma and slightly smokey cardboard taste.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Smoke

Preparation

drank Ceremonial Matcha by David's Tea
40 tasting notes

I don’t have a proper whisk (used a large metal one) so that might affect this review but: pleasant drinking it straight, a little grassy with no bitterness. It’s my first foray into straight matcha that’s not in ice cream form though, so it’s not as “sweet, creamy, delicate” as the description would have you think. But that’s just my beginner’s palate not appreciating this yet?

Mixes well into a latte… that’s probably how I’ll drink this.

P.S. Drink it soon after you make it! Again, probably an issue to do with lack of a matcha whisk but the matcha clumps back out of solution and sits at the bottom if you leave it alone.

Flavors: Grass

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Genmaicha by David's Tea
12 tasting notes

It’s my first time drinking genmaicha so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Having my first HUGE tumblr of the tea and the verdict: I love it! It’s unlike any other green teas / teas. Smells and tastes like burnt rice. Although I have to admit the burnt rice taste seems to overpower the green tea. I could even see that there seems to be more rice than green tea in the can.
Nevertheless, this could be my everyday tea as it is light and smooth. Btw, I have the habit of just leaving my tea leaves steep while drinking it. While many may think that it gets too bitter if you oversleep, but not to me. For this tea, it doesn’t get any more bitter. May not be the correct way but who cares! As long as it tastes great!

Flavors: Popcorn, Rice

I really like this tea! I was not sure what to expect…it sort of reminds me of a rice popcorn cake but it has a lovely green tea flavour to it too. I will be drinking more of this.

I like eating the rice bits. Tastes like a japanese soup :)

Jennifer (shecoloura)

I tried some and they are yummy, I have always liked popped or toasted rice foods. This tea did sort of have a soup flavour to it, I enjoyed it. It would be good with a meal.

Rasseru

Thats so true, perfect for something non-spicy with japanese rice
