The container for this tea had a weird smell, but fortunately the taste of the tea was better. I enjoyed this tea it had a nice sweet taste, though I think the cookie dough taste could be a bit stronger.

YUM! I forgot about this gem, delicious and sweet. In the tin it kinda has a play dough smell but once steeped the aroma is unmistakably cookie dough :) Good to the last crumb.

Sounds like the perfect tea when you’re feeling kind of sick :)

i think this tea is best iced down and cold per the tea person’s recommendation. the other reviewer is right, more than a cup, it’s a bit nauseating since it’s so fragrant. also, after subsequent brewings, you will notice a bitter note—so don’t steep too long and ice it down! this is an once in a while type tea!

oh yes, i like this tea very very much. on any day, it is very good. seriously like the name implies, the tea carries with it a creamy taste and feel, and every time i brew this tea, i can steep several times. whatever makes it milky and silky is probably radioactive, but nonetheless, one of my favorites!

This tea is happiness in a cup. Smells like birthday cake, looks like a party and tastes like caramel cake. I’m in love. If you are looking for caramel without tobacco or smoky notes, try this.

Flavors: Cake, Caramel, Cream, Sweet, Vanilla

I really like what I imagine the pu’erh part of the taste of the tea is. The rest of it tastes like, well, one of those chocolate oranges, with more orange flavor than chocolate. The tea is kind of “less-than” for me since I’m not super fond of that flavor, but I might try it again.

David’s Chocolate Chili Chai is the reason I joined Steepster … just to write this review. This tea is sublime! A little bit about my tastes: I drink coffee, love spicy foods, red wine, and chocolate. This tea is great first thing on a misty morning, or sitting at my desk on a winter evening watching the snow fall. It’s sublime. As I am writing this, I have finished my cup but the scent of this tea still lingers the air. David’s Tea should start making candles! Unbelievably yummy. Two things I would like to note: I used an 8 oz mug and I like a little more tea than the average bear: I use a tablespoon. The flavor makes the more rapid dwindling of my stash so worth it. I can always get more. And I will. :) A million stars.

Nutty, light flavour! My favourite tea to drink! Very relaxing, and great aroma! Pairs nicely with Chinese food, especially Dim Sum! Very satisfying.

I have tried this tea both as just a tea and as a chai tea as the name suggests. As a chai tea I can taste the chocolate and and just a note of chili. Nothing to make it spicy, but to just enhance the chocolate. As a tea, it reminds me of Chocolate Rocket.

Books recommended for this tea are: The Black Dahlia by James Ellroy, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, & Mystic River by Denis Lehane

drank juicy orange by David's Tea
63 tasting notes

This was a tea of the day down at my local David’s Tea shop today. Piping hot, it tasted smooth and sweet, with a bit of sour at the finish. But as it cooled off, it tasted more like baby aspirin or Tang. I don’t think I’ll get it again.

drank Bai Hao Yin Zen by David's Tea
29 tasting notes

I received a sample of this with my latest David’s Tea purchase. It has big tea leaves—a fantastic sign. I used about half of the sample because I still don’t have a proper tea ball, and I’d rather let such pretty leaves unfurl in a wee bit of water, than cram it all in this microscopic tea ball I have and not get the bestest flavor.

It smells amaaaaaazing! :) And the taste? Out. Of. This. World. I thought I’d tasted white tea, but no… I’d only had shadows, powder, imitation teas that couldn’t hold a candle to this stuff. I am now, officially, a fan of white tea. It’s sweet all by itself, and has a round, grassy flavor—no funky aftertaste (those who have delved into the black hole that is supermarket bagged tea may know the aftertaste I’m referencing shudder).

Yup. I’m impressed. And I just used half a teaspoon. And my water was probably way too hot.

Flavors: Sweet, Vegetal

drank Genmaicha by David's Tea
62 tasting notes

This one is really not for me. I appreciate the complexity, but I felt as though the rice made it taste vaguely like soup. I normally love green tea, but I couldn’t finish the cup this time. On the plus side, I’m learning more and more all the time. I guess I’ve finally found a type of tea that really does not appeal to me.

Flavors: Chicken Soup, Grass, Rice, Salty

Welcome to Steepster! Guess genmaicha isn’t for everyone. :)

M

Thanks! I’m still getting the hang of it all. Genmaicha isn’t my favourite, but I’d be open to trying it again (maybe a different brand?) in the future. I’ve changed my mind before.

Fjellrev

You never know, it may grow on you or you may find a brand whose genmaicha you prefer. And if not, there is so much more out there!

M

That is very true. I’m open to any and all teas, so I don’t doubt I’ll try more genmaicha in the future.

This tea saved my day. Thanks NayLynn and Brandon! I swear I tried 5 different tea samples today and nothing hit the spot at all. I think some of the samples have gotten old and they just were off. I then decided I had to have a “happy” tea, something to make me smile. And this was perfect. :)

Today at Weight Watchers the scale showed me up a pound :( so I have to really push myself to have my lovely dessert teas instead of all the seasonal treats. It’s so hard….. I know a pound isn’t much but I don’t want to let it start going up after finally reaching my goal. I lost more than forty pounds and cookies are not going to tell me what to do!!!

Kittenna

You can do it!! :D

Fjellrev

You know know, it could be water retention. Just keep going! I know, I can get really discouraged when I put so much into weight loss and you plateau or even gain when you’re trying so hard, but it’s all about the willpower.

Willpower? What’s that? ;-p
Thanks!

Fjellrev

Haha yeah, sometimes the willpower tank is running on low, especially when you’re at it for so long. :)

Always have wanted to try this tea. I’m quite impressed. So creamy and smooth. I haven’t had any milk in a long time. My husband is allergic and I try to keep dairy products out of the house. That and not having straight up milk has really helped improve my skin.

Is there any milk in this? Man my taste buds are so confused. The lovely vegetal oolong the silky, smooth milkish whatever it is that causes that flavor.

I am a vanilla soy milk lover. :D
