Not a very good Yin Zhen. A mainly stemmy taste that only has a fraction of the aromatic punch you’d expect. It’s not a bad introduction to white teas, but every other Yin Zhen I’ve had has been much more impressive.

Flavors: Peach, Pear, Sweet Potatoes

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 45 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I had never before tried a milk oolong, so I didn’t know what to expect. This is like a cup of hot milk before bed. Liquid comfort food.

DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea: Day 3 out of 24

What a nice surprise, given that is currently my favorite oolong. Love that milky flavor, and just between you and I, if someone made a QMO scented cologne, I very well might rep that.

Lesson learned though: OOLONG LEAVES EXPAND. I tried brewing in my Zojirushi travel mug, and the leaves weren’t able to expand fully in the small strainer. The end result was noticeably weaker-flavored tea.

Love love love this tea.

Intensely creamy, almost as if it comes with a hint of condensed milk in every sip. Very smooth oolong flavor as well!

Got a sample of this from the very generous, Boychik!
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this one since I’m not a super huge chai fan unless it’s cloudy and rainy (and it barely ever is here, sadly >

Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin, Spices

Flyawaybirdie

We got a tiny bit of rain here this morning! Did you get any?

boychik

Glad you liked it. It is not spectacular but it’s pretty good as a comfort tea

Ost

I didn’t, Flyawaybirdie! Jealous though! Too hot up here still!

And thank you so much again, boychik! :D

Missed this last year, but my local DT had a bunch of 25g packs in the sale section, so I grabbed one. I rather like it – sweet and clovey, very Christmassy but without nasty hibiscus which too many Christmas teas seem to contain. I left the tea steeping in the mug the entire time, and it just got better – I would like to try it with proper infusions but I doubt it’s a long-lasting tea. I’m debating picking up another pack of it before it disappears, but being so heavy, it’s a pretty expensive tea by weight…. Also, best not to develop too much of a taste for a discontinued tea!

Ah the triumphant return of fall! Not more than two weeks ago, the summer was sweltering on, but overnight the season has changed.

Nothing ushers in all the wonderfully crisp feelings of fall quite like this perfect cup of tea.

This is one of those teas that you need to drink room temp or cold in order to taste all the flavours. The citrus taste isn’t overwhelming at all but its there. Over all its a pretty smooth tea.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Orange

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 6 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 240 ML

How is it that I had to add this one to the database?! Has no one really reviewed sencha from Davids??? really?! I wonder if it’s a glitch.

Anyhow, I took this one camping with me because a friend asked for green tea and I didn’t have much in my cupboard for sharing. I historically dislike sencha, so I wasn’t too bothered either way having it in my cupboard.
Except… well then I had a cuppa and it was suprisingly tasty. I actually enjoyed sencha, for the first time in pretty much ever. My preferences must be changing. Interesting.
Something about the grass texture is rather pleasing.

There is one in the database called Japanese Sencha by Davids…

Indigobloom

Ah that makes more sense. Though I think it was a glitch as well because David’s was showing only 24 teas of theirs that had been reviewed.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by David's Tea
16 tasting notes

I thought this would be a nice variation on a Chai tea. Sadly, it was so bad that I threw away the entire package. It had some flavor that was just off-putting – perhaps a strong Caradmon? I am not sure – and I love Chai – just not this Chai. At all.

I was looking for a nice, spicy Chai that had a strong cinnamon flavor to it. I had hoped that this Chai would be the one that I was searching for. Alas, it was not. It was a good Chai. There is a cinnamon note – it is just fairly subtle. My search continues….

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Ginger

I bought this tea based on the smell alone and I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, I really didn’t enjoy it :(. It was way too sweet for me and it didn’t really taste like coconut or chocolate. I think it was partly because this is an oolong tea.

drank The Earl's Garden by David's Tea

I’m not typically a fan of Earl Grey teas but this one I really enjoyed. It wasn’t overpowering as an earl grey flavour but it was still super yummy. I sadly only have 2 little pots from one of their special boxes (I think it was the Christmas countdown? Maybe the Easter one? I’m not sure). I still love it though and would definitely look into purchasing more. (Do they still sell this? I clearly don’t know much about this tea)

drank Cookie Dough by David's Tea
3 tasting notes

I wish I had more of this wonderful tea left in my cupboard. I remember this being one of my first loose leaf teas back in 2012. It doesn’t really taste like cookie dough but it does taste miraculous. I love it. I secretly hope they’ll bring it back sometime.
I steeped this tea at a cooler temperature than I steep most teas, and it was delicious. I didn’t need any sweetener or milk and it tasted great. I wish DAVIDsTEA would bring this back at least for the winter!!

From David’s Tea, I knew I shouldn’t expect anything less than perfection. The smell in the bag was enticing enough. I told my fiance to pick out a tea since I had so many to try and she just threw the bag, I didn’t argue since it was David’s Tea, and I’m quite impressed.

At first I was a big skeptical, mixing black tea with red tea didn’t seem like a delicious idea but the ingredients said otherwise, hints of jasmine in between. Overall the experience was fruity, but that nice red and black tea taste reminded you that this wasn’t grandmas house. I would love to stock on this tea more.

Flavors: Berries, Fruity, Jasmine

Preparation

Is it this tea? http://steepster.com/teas/davidstea/11899-three-wishes-tea
If so, I like that tea a lot! I also like “Glitter & Gold”, so pretty to brew.

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

I got a sample of this with a DavidsTea order awhile back. I brought it to work last week, and decided to have it this morning. I opened the little packet (I hate the packaging for their loose leaf samples, BTW – I’m always afraid I’m going to get it all over the place trying to rip through the sticker, and ripping the sticker means I can’t read the label while I sip) and turned it into the brewing basket for the cup I use at work.

I took a sniff of the dry loose tea, and confusion sets in – I smell chocolate. I have never had a white tea that smelled of chocolate. Not malty, not cocoa-y – chocolate. I drank a chocolate flavored tea last week – did I not wash out my brewing mug and basket well enough last week?

Next issue – I sweeten black teas more than green or white, so I grabbed two packets of sweetener by habit, and poured them both in. I should have gone with one. It’s too sweet.

And it tastes of chocolate. There are only 3 reviews of this tea, none of them mention chocolate.

There’s a little bit of the vegetal taste I would expect. But there’s that chocolate too. And it’s overly sweet.

I’m so confused.

I love this Earl Grey. The strawberry flavouring is strong but definitely not overpowering. It’s a nice alternative to basic Earl Grey/black tea. I don’t find the strawberry flavouring to be too sweet or sickly. It is the perfect balance between fruity and rich flavour. Highly recommend!

Flavors: Bergamot, Earl Grey, Strawberry

Preparation
5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp
