Recent Tasting Notes

This was the first matcha that I have tried. It’s a mild matcha, which foams up well when you whisk it. There aren’t really standards for what a ceremonial matcha should be. The colour was fine. I wasn’t amazed by the aroma or anything.

One thing I did notice was the difference in freshness between my usual matcha and this. The place where you will notice the difference is in the toilet. I’m not sure if this one is fresh enough by the time you buy it.

I would suggest it as a starting matcha. Just know that it is possible to find better ones.

I thought the cinnamon in this brew was a little intense, so I added a sprinkle of raw sugar. I think it’s good to drink for an itchy throat and as a small pick-me-up.

This Matcha is great! For the money, maybe not so. I like to spend my monthly steeper points at Davids Tea on this stuff, after all it is the most expensive tea they sell so its the best bang for your buck when cashing in your points.

Its earthy, creamy, and just perfect. One of the better matchas I have tried.

Flavors: Cream, Earth

I use my points for this too! :)

While driving into work, I actively craved this tea. It’s a rich, robust little number.
Upon arrival, it totally hits the spot on this murky, ambivalent morning. The weather isn’t tough enough to commit to rain, wind, or sun. It’s just an overcast with a ruffly, apathetic breeze. So frustrating.
But the tea is DEFINITELY the liquid equivalent of a dark chocolate orange break-apart ball from Easter. That much is certain.

Put this in the gravity steeper for about 5 minutes, and love it. Pu-erh is my new favorite thing.
This is a super-deep tea that is, well, dark chocolate and orange. It is PRECISELY AS ADVERTISED. You know those chocolate oranges you smash against the wall and eat at Easter time? This is basically that.
And makes a great dessert substitute.
I imagine this tea to be something a woods-witch would give you to distract you while they applied a spell to your broken leg.

I didn’t care for this earl grey. I don’t enjoy the black tea base used and I didn’t find the cream flavour very good. It tasted more like cream cheese than cream/milk flavour.

I received this for Christmas in a tin over the winter holidays and I’ve only had it a few times since. This is mostly because I’m not fond of the sickly sweet cinnamon. I know most people like it, but it’s not for me. I do enjoy cinnamon hearts and cinnamon (as in the spice), but for some reason this tea doesn’t do it for me. Anyway, I still like it with milk as a spicy latte in the mornings. It actually makes a decent plain tea or iced tea as well. I find it iced with a tiny bit of lemon/fruit juice balances out the sweetness. The chai spices work really well with the cinnamon, so I actually recommend this blend to others.

I really like the slight nuttiness of this tea. Combined with hints of grassiness, it makes for a really flavorful experience. Definitely one of my new favorite green teas.

I was quite hesitant about this blend because I’ve read so many bad things about Earl Grey/fruit blend’s, but it has all my favourite ingredients, so I wanted to give it a shot. I’m so glad I did. I can really taste a sweet (but not acidic) fruity flavour from strawberries and maybe blackberry. There are floral notes like rose but they aren’t distracting. I really like the black tea they use as a base in this one. The base tea is flavourful but not bitter. The bergamot goes really well with fruits and flowers. I really can’t stress enough how harmonious all the flavours are. I love everything about this tea.

It smelled very fruity in the bag, however the aroma and flavour of the steeped tea is floral with a lot of sweetness from some sort of stone fruits. I do not taste and tea at all.

It steeps a very attractive rich orange colour. The initial taste is slightly tangy but mostly fruity and then you are left with floral and sweetness after swallowing.

This tea is delicious, slightly spicy, sweet and warm. It would be great as a latte. Steep for a longer time for a deeper, stronger flavour. Add some honey and it’s great. This almost reminds me of a Christmas tea.

This tea is good but not great as others have said. It smells fantastic, creamy and delicious, but unfortunately it doesn’t taste that way. It has a smooth, slightly creamy taste, but then a bitter, leafy aftertaste. It honestly smells great- it smells exactly like a green tea kit kat. I wish that’s what it tasted like. This is one of those teas that smells way better than it tastes, especially for the price. I would not buy this one again.

This is my favourite flavour from David’s- it never disappoints. It smells sweet, just like birthday cake. It tastes like it too, it’s smooth and sweet. I don’t have to add any sugar. I like to steep it longer to bring out the flavours. Everyone I have given this tea too loves it.

I got this iced and unsweetened from a davids tea in a mall I was at. I needed to buy more tea like I need another hole in my head, but I was desperate for something unsweetened to drink so I stopped in. I had a look at their tea tumblers but it looked like they have changed suppliers since the construction of their matcha maker compared to pictures I’ve seen online is different. I was less than impressed with it as the button felt shoddy especially for the cost so no knew teaware for me.

I regretted not getting the gyokuro hot as it was super buttery iced. It was still good, but buttery was mostly what I got out of it. It being from the end of the tin and from last years harvest probably didn’t help any. Still they offered to sell me an ounce for 99 cents which I’m still a little sad I didn’t take them up on because of the previously mentioned size of my tea hoard. I’m also semi regretting not trying their quince charming as if it does any justice to the quince flavor I would have enjoyed it immensely. Maybe next time…

I’m gonna miss this one. It was a little too floral tasting, but it made an excellent iced tea.
