Recent Tasting Notes
I tried this as a hot tea and I really wanted to like this tea because who doesn’t like birthday cake?!? People who shouldn’t be trusted that’s who lol
*UPDATE: I recently discovered iced tea lattes and decided to try this one. I LOVE IT that way!! I even added a tiny bit of agave. I can taste the cake flavor in it. Yum.
A really delicate little cup. Super nostalgic on the nose. Reminiscent of those cheap cherry suckers offered by the bank teller at the drive-through when I would ride along with one of my parents as a little girl. The cherry is present in the taste but more subtle than the scent would have you expecting. Still, far more cherry than blossom. No petals here. Tart.
For me, this is a real bust. As nice as the memories are, the taste of synthetic cherry is just not something I want in my tea, as I imagine others might feel.
Flavors: Bitter, Cherry, Flowers, Tart
This is one of my autumn favourites. I usually pick up a tin of this when it starts to get cool in September. To me it tastes like pumpkin pie with a smooth chai finish. I usually drink this with a splash of milk. This one is a staple in my tea stash.
Flavors: Caramel, Molasses, Pumpkin
Is there such a thing as too peachy? I love peaches and usually peach flavored things, but this is pretty cloying and artificial tasting. It has the potential to be refreshing if it wasn’t so sweet. Agree with the poster who said it’s better chilled than hot.
Flavors: Artificial, Peach, Sugar
well, as being new to the tea ‘reviewers’ and to loose leaf, I have to say- delicious! i steep twice. not too sure what teas are good to steep over once yet. this tea is nutty, yet subtle. i enjoy it when it has cooled as well. i am looking forward to trying other Genmaicha as well. i do always order when eating sushi as i live on the West Coast of Canada. super tasty
Flavors: Green, Nutty
This tea has been a staple in my cupboard. Not that I drink it most often, but its one of those very reliable flavors that will taste good when you don’t know what you feel like having. It really lives up to its name, it tastes like vanilla cupcake, but mixed with sweet rooibos tea. Its much better than just vanilla rooibos tea, but I can’t pinpoint exactly where that extra flavor comes from. I know some people call it caramel or maple, but I don’t really pick up on either of those, it almost seems more like a sweetened whipped cream (although I guess that makes sense given the ‘ice cream chips’ added in). This is a great treat/dessert tea when you’ve deprived yourself of dessert or if you just want to feel like its your birthday again!
Now that Exotica was discontinued, Coco Chai moved up into #1 spot of my teas. I love the little peppercorns and the flavor they inject into teas, and this mix of coconut and rooibos works perfectly together for a mildly spiced chai that still retains some sweetness. When I don’t have a particular tea craving or can’t decide what I feel like having, Coco Chai always fits the bill. Its a tea that always tastes good, always satisfies and I hope it doesn’t get discontinued! Davids tea has been discontinuing too many teas too quickly lately!!
I wasnt expecting to like this, because generally I havent liked chocolate flavored tea. But I was looking for orange flavored stuff and this actually smelled really nice so I gave it a try. And it ended up becoming one of my faves this winter! If you’ve ever had orange flavored chocolate, this really tastes JUST like it. Its a perfectly equal blend of chocolate and orange flavor, and the pu-erh works well with it, not overpowering, and allows the two other flavors to come through instead. Works absolutely fantastic as a latte as well, its like a perfect low calorie orange flavored hot chocolate.
I have yet to prepare this well, but it is a lovely tea! I LOVE IT!
I’ve used it mostly as an ingredient for a bubble tea like drink instead of straight, but it’s flavour is so great!
Even though it’s probably a bad idea for the lifespan of the tea, I really enjoy opening the canister to look at the lovely colour and smell it (I loooove green tea). Although if you do that, please be careful, as it is fine powder and I shook it a bit by accident one time and inhaled a bit of the tea.
The colour is beautiful, the texture is silky smooth and the flavour is wonderful. One of my favourite green teas ever and I will repurchase.
I find I am very sensitive to caffeine and l-theanine, so I don’t drink green tea as often as I would like. I find it can make me feel wonderfully relaxed and sleepy.
Have tried this a handful of times now and every time I added milk and sugar as that’s what I’m used to. Didn’t care for it a whole lot, I felt like it changed and weakened the flavor. Today I tried it sans anything else and I like the taste a great deal more. It’s still by no means the best earl grey I’ve had but I think I’ll be drinking this quite often.
A girlfriend of mine is a huge fan of this flavor so I had to get it. It’s has a balanced mix of milk chocolate, chai spices, and just a hint of pepper. Really good, I have to agree with her. Just wonderful blend.
Flavors: Chocolate, Pepper, Spices
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
