Recent Tasting Notes
Upon first sniff, I get flavors of pumpkin, caramel, vanilla, and spices. It’s so delicious, I just want to eat it up! The liquor itself is like a dark amber color. After brewing, the smell of spices are much more subdued. This chai isn’t as “spice heavy” as some other chai teas that I have tried in the past and I do appreciate that. The smell almost reminds me of a pumpkin cake which is very pleasant. You can really taste the pumpkin here and I also get just a subtle hint of butternut squash. It’s great with a little bit of sugar and milk, it really rounds out that pumpkin cake flavor that I get from this tea. I really enjoy this one overall! I have yet to try the mate in their Pumpkin Collection but I think this one is my favorite so far.
Flavors: Cake, Caramel, Pumpkin, Spices, Vanilla
I have to confess I’m not the biggest fan of David’s Tea – too many disappointing blends come out of there in my opinion. However, I was at the mall today and figured I would try a cup of something I’ve never had before. I had a cup of this hot, with no sweetener. This is a blend of white and green teas with cherry, rosebuds and coconut. I did enjoy the cherry/floral flavor of this. I find that cherry is such a difficult flavor to get right in tea. This wasn’t too bad but it did seem slightly high on the artificial flavor. Probably would not turn down another cup if it was offered to me, but it won’t be a purchase.
This tea smells like blueberry jam and evokes a bright winter day; you under a quilt or comforter with the pet of your choice and this warm, sweet tea in your cup.
With strong blueberry notes and the added sweetness of a subtle grape, this tea is wonderful either hot or iced, prepared as a “sun” tea, the flavour is a little less sweet, and slightly acrid.
It’s become one of my favourites!
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruity, Grapes
I picked this tea up when I was going to buy some other green teas from Davids Tea. I didn’t know what it would taste like, but the smell reminded me of my trip to South Korea. When I brewed the tea the smell was very rice like and almost reminded me of the traditional Korean corn tea taste. It was a very pleasant taste and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a little something different other than there regular green tea.
Flavors: Earth, Rice, Vegetal
This is a decent autumn tea. It reminds me of a freshly baked pumpkin pie with hints of cinnamon and clove flavours. I prefer my chai teas more spicy than this one though and found the caramel and pumpkin candy sweetness were almost masking the chai flavour (although it does get spicier as it cools). I preferred the spiced pumpkin (herbal) from David’s and the pumpkin spice (black) I had from Murchie’s over this one. Won’t have trouble finishing it, but I guess I was hoping for a better balance of the chai and pumpkin flavours.
Flavors: Caramel, Cinnamon, Cloves, Pumpkin, Spices
I received this tea and a timolino as a gift for my birthday. I may be a little biased in saying that the best gifts in life are tea.
Heh, joking aside, this tea is intensely maple with a mild aftertaste of birthday cake flavour. I think the sweetness of the rooibos and the maple flavour complement each other nicely— even as they make the car smell like maple, causing everyone to turn their heads and talk about your tea.
While I don’t think I’d go back to purchase this tea, it was enjoyable while it lasted.
Flavors: Artificial, Cake, Caramel, Maple, Maple Syrup, Rooibos
A nicely comforting tea with no caffeine so it makes a great after-dinner treat. The ingredients include whipped cream, pumpkin pie, maple almond flavouring in addition to maple crystals, cocoa shells and pumpkin pieces. So it has a lot going on in it. The pumpkin spice comes out very prominently brewed and there’s a creaminess and pastry-like flourish. The maple flavour is excellent, I was worried it might be over the top because the aroma is so strong dried (it almost smells like a maple liqueur dried). But a lot more of the other flavours mingle and come out when brewed in this lovely autumn tea.
Flavors: Cocoa, Creamy, Maple, Pastries, Pumpkin, Spices
In the past, I haven’t been the biggest fan of pumpkin anything, but all of sudden, I can’t get enough of it. That being said, I had high hopes for this tea. I absolutely loved the smell of it when I was in the store but decided on another tea, so I threw it into my online order later to try it out. I made the tea and…I’m not a fan. There’s no spice to this tea whatsoever, so you’re just left with a semi-tasteless black tea. I think I was picking more of the carrot and squash flavors, so it reminded me of the pumpkin mate that tastes like vegetable soup. I enjoy that tea, but that’s not what I’m looking for with this one. On the other hand, maybe I’m looking for something that’s more like a pumpkin spice latte? Who knows. I’m going to give this one another shot and see if maybe it’ll redeem itself.
Edit: I’m still not the biggest fan, but I like it more than when I first drank it. As with Stormy Night, I found that I needed to make my steep longer and sweeten with agave nectar. The result was a sweeter tea that I found much more enjoyable. However, it’s still lacking the spice that I expect with a chai tea which is a bummer.
Flavors: Caramel, Clove, Pumpkin
so i’m like sitting here looking out the window and I can see three fluffy white clouds. it just gets me thinking… why are there only three? then I think of this tea. it has two flavours: chocolate and orange. why aren’t there three? so yes, I do like this tea. but it needs something else. milk? sugar? i’ll never know….
Yup. Still definitely tastes like Yankee Candle… Luckily it tastes better than it sounds like it would but it definitely wasn’t a fluke the first time I drank it.
Definitely has some spice, molasses or brown sugar possibly, but something in it is muting it a weird way (who knows, maybe it’s the sprinkles?) I think this was a seasonal tea but nonetheless, definitely won’t be picking up more even though I like it because it just weirds me out a bit too much – only one more cup to go until I finish this one off!
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Clove, Cream, Molasses, Nutmeg
This one seems better this time than it did before (or maybe I’m finally getting into the pumpkin spice spirit.) I love the pumpkin flavor, it almost reminds me of like a pumpkin cake or pie – I can’t imagine adding sweetener at all. I wish David’s would do without the stupid crap like sprinkles, but eh, c’est la vie.
Flavors: Cake, Pumpkin
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.
