drank Mandarin Chai by Davidson's
911 tasting notes

Wow, I’ve had a lot of tea today! This is the last bit of a small bag I picked up from the bulk tea section at my grocery store. I had enough leaf to make 3 cups but was only making for me and DH. One cup of chai just won’t do it around here as chai is a social tea only to be made for groups no smaller than two, so instead of having 1 cup’s worth of leaf languishing about, I dumped it all in.

The orange flavoring is not as strong but what of it there is is much stronger/darker. Orange peel instead of orange fruit. Now, neither DH nor I drink coffee unless we have to and even then, we both put lot of sugar and milk in it. That being said, this stronger chai is very coffee-like. Darker, heavier taste with a more acidic bitterness as an aftertaste. Of course, the fact that I made it with sugar and half milk/half water also lends toward the coffee similarity. Our type of coffee. Sweet, creamy, dark and a little acidic.

Did half milk/half water + sugar and tea and brought it to a boil. It’s like chai with a splash of creamsicle. Or if I made a light masala chai using my orange milk instead of normal milk. (Yes, I have orange milk – it is gooooood).

Ok, this tea sounds simply delightful, one. But two, ORANGE MILK? That sounds uh.maze.ing. Where? Where?

Promised Land brand milk – it’s a seasonal flavor that I picked up at Central Market (which, if you aren’t familiar with it, is a gourmet/hippie grocery store). I also got the tea at Central Market. Yay Central Market!

drank Green Rooibos by Davidson's

A nice mix of green rooibos and honeybush that tastes lighter than the traditional red rooibos. Tastes great iced.

Smells pleasant, not overbearing. I can smell the orange and the spearmint and the spice! It’s very light in color. Upon tasting the spice flavor is more prominent then you can taste the other flavors. I have to say I don’t like this one. I thought I would based on smell. But I don’t, I don’t think the Orange, Spearmint, and Spice blend well at all in this tea. Maybe my sink drain will like this one better.

It doesn’t smell but it has a nice color. Just a hint of Apricot – more of a tea taste tho. It’s fairly good for a ‘cheap’ tea.

Tastes like Hot Water. No flavor – No Scent. Not a tea in my book.

Dark in Color. Hint of Cinnamon Scent. Undertones of a few spices. Not over powering. Average Overall Taste. Good for those who like it on the light side of the chai scene.

drank Lemon Mango by Davidson's

One of the more flavorful Davidson’s Teas I have drank recently. You can smell the lemon. Taste the Lemon…but I think it’s the Mango that cuts the Lemon Sourness a little. It’s pretty good if you like a little zing!

Very Dark in Color. Barely-There Caramel Scent. Average Tea Taste…can’t really taste the Raspberry or the Caramel. Tastes ok as a tea but not so much with the other tastes…depends on what you look for I guess. I’ll still give it a thumbs up because it’s pleasant but if you are looking for the flavors…turn the thumb upside down.

drank Spiced Pear by Davidson's
6770 tasting notes

I don’t think Davidson’s Teas are very strong at all but I’m giving this one a thumbs up because it’s a nice, delicate cup. A very light scent but the pear hint does come thru in smell. The Coloring is nice and the taste is average. Still worth a try.

drank Meyer Lemon by Davidson's

Another first for me…never had this one before. It’s an average tea in a bag. Not very strong. You can taste the lemon…not so much with the honey.

I can taste more Almond than Tangerine. (I am having it as a follow-up to some chocolate.) Next to NO smell. It has a nice coloring tho. After a 2nd and 3rd taste you begin to get more hints of the tangerine. It’s fairly good.

Had to steep longer than directed. Pleasant – Light in taste. Before steeping light aroma…after steeping next to NO scent. If you are a beginner or aren’t into a strong tea taste…try this.
