Recent Tasting Notes
I’ve been treated to ceremonial matcha before and this is a fine matcha for its price range.
Smooth, very low astringency. I have suffered reflux from low-grade matcha on an empty stomach before – never with this grade from Davids Tea. Only slightly higher in cost than Davids Tea Matcha Matsu – sniff them both, you’ll notice a huge gap in quality.
I love this tea! I can’t have it by itself with a splash of milk, though. It’s a little too strong for me like that. What I do is do a milk to water ratio of 3:1, so I heat up my water and slip it into my brewer while I have the milk on the stove. Once it’s finished brewing, I pour the tea into the milk on the stove with a tsp of cane sugar, and it is fabulous.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Orange Zest
I need a sweet yet guilt-free afternoon pick-me-up, so I reached for this since I’ve been meaning to try it. It’s very comforting! A warm, sweet and slightly spicy flavor. And, the taste of pumpkin is even coming through :D , but it’s still a great blend that I plan to keep around this season.
One of my favourite things about the fall and winter season is none other than chai! I was super excited when the fall teas came out and had to go and buy all of them. This one is one of my top 3. You can taste the chainess goodness in every sip!
Flavors: Caramel, Cloves, Pumpkin
So I know I’ve had this tea before, but it doesn’t have any notes saved for me? Hmm, maybe I got the wrong listing?
In any case, hello again Pumpkin Chai.
Its my mothers birthday today, so I must have a pumpkin tea, as its her favorite flavor.
Its also my next interview for the job I’ve been applying for- interview 3. I’m nervous, but its going to be ok! Alright, tea, lets do this.
[not sure if this is catalogued correctly… maybe someone from the DAVIDsTEA account can update it]
This is a cute blend, with little pumpkin candies in the dry leaf, a sweet novelty for someone who is a Halloween fan. I brewed this hot and steeped it for a long while, luckily I like my teas strong. This tea is pre-sweetened, between the pumpkin candies and the caramel, so it is definitely for dessert. Cinnamon and caramel are the strongest flavors, equal parts sweet and spicy. While carrot is listed as an ingredient and I think I see some carrot in the leaf, I really don’t get any of the squash or carrot flavor. Likewise the cloves and lemon peel and very subtle.I would sum up this blend as “caramel chai,” and the black tea base is amazingly smooth, especially for my oversteeping. I wouldn’t mind a blend in the future with a little more body or flavor variety, maybe some earthiness… maybe David’s would make a pumpkin pu erh? Anyway, this tea was a delicious sweet fall treat, no tricks here!
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Candy, Caramel, Cinnamon, Spices
It’s September and Pumpkin everything is upon us. Seeing as how I don’t drink coffee I figured I would have to try a pumpkin tea something or another. I prefer my chai to be spicy. A bit of zip. This has chai flavor but for me it’s too sweet. Good base. Although I can barely taste it. Add a bit more zip and I think this would be a hit. Uh… you know… I’m not really sensing much pumpkin either… Or was the pumpkin just those candy pieces?
I got a cup of this with some agave nectar added to go this evening. The flavour was milder than I expected. I tasted mostly nutmeg and cream, with a hint of cinnamon as I progressed through the cup. It was nice, but I know that when I buy teas from David’s Tea that I can never make them taste as good at home as they do in the store.
This was a tad too fruity for me, even though I like my blacks fruity. How’s that possible? It was too tart/bitter not to add sweetener, but then when I did, it’s like sweetener “didn’t go” with it. Made it taste funny. I will try this again but perhaps steep it less and maybe try agave with it instead of sugar or honey.
God I love how it smells!! Just like cherry candies. It doesn’t quite taste the same as it smells, I can distinguish coconut and the white tea base. It is a soothing tea and I loved drinking it in winter, it made me smile despite the harsh weather. Iced, however, I did not like it as much, the cherry flavour became too artificial. The rose buds in the blend are really pretty and since it came out in february, I think of it as a romantic tea.
Flavors: Cherry, Cherry Blossom, Coconut
