I purchased this tea quite some time ago and I don’t remember enjoying it that much. This was early on in my tea immersion. So, it sat at the back of my tea cupboard for a long time. A few nights ago, I came across it and decided to try it again. I had it as a hot latte. I am not sure if my tastes have changed, but I suspect that I am just better at preparing loose leaf tea now…..because it was really good! I was surprised by how much I liked it. Usually, I don’t like the cinnamon in David’s Tea chais, but I am a HUGE chai lover otherwise. But this was really, really good. Like “I need to add this to my regular rotation” good. Definitely as a latte, as a chai should be!

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
101 tasting notes

it’s good coffee..but not tasting any puerh. hmmm…maybe flavored puerh is not for me. did a side by side with samovar blood orange and natural tea leaf lavender puerh. i was able to detect puerh in the others but the coffee flavor in this makes up for the lack. great for those wanting to sub tea for coffee but now im wondering about the caffeine content of this.. it might be half coffee half tea lol

My favorite of all David’s Teas. Not too chocolately, not too spicy, nice flavours. The smell is to die for. This is my go to in the mornings. I drink it plain – no milk, no sugar and I love it.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Pepper, Spicy

To me this tastes like an apple cinnamon tea. I don’t get pear from this at all, which is what I was after when I picked this up. Slightly disappointing, though it’s not a bad tea.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon

drank Buttered Rum by DAVIDsTEA

Cold-brewed this overnight and I think I like it better cold than hot. :) Can’t really taste much of the base tea, but the flavouring is quite lovely – butterscotch, vanilla, coconut.

reviewed The Steeper by DAVIDsTEA
82 tasting notes

I am slightly ashamed to admit it, but I bought the 36 oz and 18 oz versions of this within days of each other – it is SO dang easy to make tea with this thing!! No infuser to deal with that inevitably leaks over the little lid-coaster onto the table.

I haven’t encountered any staining yet but I plan on giving them baking soda baths proactively to counter that. I love the styling and it’s so lovely to look at the tea when it’s steeping. These make me want to keep making tea just so I can watch it steep!

drank Choconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
896 tasting notes

I’m drinking the last of this tonight, and I know lots of you didn’t like it, but this makes me happy. It’s chocolatety, it’s nutty, it’s dark oolong – what’s not to love?
I certainly wouldn’t drink this every night, but on those days that I need a little dessert tea, this certainly hits the spot.

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
1745 tasting notes

Thank you for the sale, MissB! I really wanted to try this one. It would probably be better in autumn, but it was delicious anyway! I can taste pumpkin in this. I’m not sure how authentic it is, but at least it’s TRYING to be pumpkin. The spices were more of a fragrance from the cup more than in the flavor. There was also a lot of creamy slightly tarty flavor that was like cheesecake. I did actually have the pumpkin cheesecake ONCE and it was quite good (actually the last dessert I ate in a restaurant and that was ages ago.) This blend has a nice balance though this rooibos was slightly harsher on the throat than usual, even in a teabag.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons // few minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // few minutes

drank Coffee puerh by DAVIDsTEA
701 tasting notes

Got this for free with my David’s Tea rewards card last week. It is fairly tasty. I just western brewed this today, basically following the directions on the package. I can’t really taste the tea however, the main thing I get is the coffee beans.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 4.5 min.

Flavors: Coffee

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
yssah

drank Mocha Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
458 tasting notes

I’ve been trying more matchas and I keep hoping I will like them, but I honestly don’t. It’s just my own personal tastes I think. I found this one to just be… not my thing I guess is the only way I can think to put it. I don’t know if it was the mocha flavouring or the grassyness or maybe the combo? But for me it just didn’t work.
I really liked the vanilla matcha, but haven’t found another one that I like. Maybe some day I’ll find one.

Brewed a pot of this just after I got up, and have been nursing a cup all day. Tried making iced tea with it, but it wasn’t strong enough and just tasted like really watery cinnamon. This is definitely designed to be a hot tea, although drinking it after it’s cooled off isn’t bad.

It’s sweet enough on it’s own, but I could see adding a tiny bit of sugar and maybe a little bit of milk to make it a dessert tea. I’d almost liken it to drinking a liquid cinnamon roll, which is pretty great.

I was hoping to get through the pot fast enough to get a second steep out of the leaves, cause I always feel guilty using like 3-4 “perfect spoons” of leaves and only getting one brew out of them. Today was a pretty lazy day though, so I’m not surprised I didn’t manage to drink a pot of tea. I think it’s time I go back to brewing one cup at a time.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Sweet

Yummy!! Got this one iced a few days ago, and what a treat! On it’s own, it’s quite tart, but sweeten it and it’s like sipping fresh-picked strawberries. Definitely one I’m going to have to add to my collection (why must I be running out of space in my cupboard?) I also didn’t get overwhelmed by the hibiscus, which was a nice change

(brewed hot by tea guides, consumed iced)

Flavors: Strawberry, Sweet, Tart

Coffee or tea? I know that they are usually mutually exclusive, but after I smelled this last week I couldn’t forget it, I had to break down and buy a cup on my pilgrimage to David’s Tea today. It tastes just as good as it smells, and if it doesn’t keep me up tonight, I may drink it regularly.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Coffee

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA

Had this one iced last night and I’m starting to wonder why in the world did I wait so long before having it? This is sweet and creamy and such a great coconut flavour. I absolutely love it!

It’s a really unique iced tea! I just ordered some more :)

drank Banana Split by DAVIDsTEA
687 tasting notes

So, I actually had this when it first came out, and I was negligent on writing a tasting note. I had it as an iced latte, and I went back the same day for another one, only iced with milk rather than a latte (which actually was not as good). I had it again recently, enjoyed it, and decided to make it my FS redemption. It’s not the most expensive tea to get my money’s worth, but I feel like I’ll use the 50g and then probably get tired of it by the time the bag is done. That said, I had it as an iced latte again today, at home (via cold steep in mason jar) and using more leaf will mean the bag is finished sooner.

I love the banana and chocolate taste of this one. And, even though it does have a bit of that weird artificial taste, I can handle it in this blend. Almost as good as the banana and chocolate flavour is that it is 1) caffeine free and 2) a green rooibos, which I can totally do! Really looking forward to more steeps with this one. Like I said, I may be sick of it by the time the bag is done, but at least it was a free bag. :)

Flavors: banana, Chocolate
