This is one of those teas that I love in store as a sample but can never in my life figure out the way to make it the same. It sucks because I purchased a lot of it and now poof gone. I couldn’t drink any way I made it and so to the compost it went.

I received this tea as a sample in my Easter Egg Hunt tea collection. I had high hopes for the tea and I did actually enjoy it. It was very nice.

Given that I like Goji Pop I thought for sure that I would love Hard Candy. I mean I do love it, but I haven’t gotten in one of my moods to completely devour it yet.

I was not so sure about this tea at first. I tried the advent calendar sample and was hooked. I ended up purchasing 100g and now that we are in July and they still have some left, I ordered more. Keep it coming haha

I really enjoyed tasting this tea in store. So much so that I used my points for a 50g pack for free. I could never make it the same way they did and I was very sad about that. I ended up giving the pack to my mother-in-law who loves oolong teas.

Love it. I got it as a sample with some other teas I ordered and quickly noticed you couldn’t buy it separately. I contacted Davids Tea and they told me that literally the next day they were re-releasing it. Going to buy some more :)

The smell of the tea was okay and it had a hint of walnut in the taste (which always reminds me of forever nuts) but the rest of it was just too overpowering for me. I’m not really into Green Teas so much lately so I found it really hard to drink.

I received this as a sample with my advent calendar in early November 2014. I was interested because once I opened it, the smell was amazing. Little did I know that the taste would be just as wonderful. It is a staple in my cupboard!

Just the smell alone will send you back in store to buy more. It’s a staple in my tea cupboard!

I am not really sure why I love it, but I do. In fact, I cheated my Davids Tea advent calendar just to try it. Once I did, I went and purchased more. Now I find myself buying whatever I can get my hands on through their web specials…in July!

This is a sturdy glass mug even though it feels quite light. However do bear in mind that designs put on it do not seem to stick even with hand washing. It’s best aspect though is it’s very roomy handle, perfect for those with fingers larger then standard handle size.

drank Sunny Citrus by DAVIDsTEA
196 tasting notes

In an effort to use up my herbals, I have bought a number of stronger tasting fruit teas to mix in with weaker herbals to create iced tea with. I normally really dislike hibiscus because of how tart it is, but when mixed with the other teas it can be pleasant as an iced tea.

For this 2L pitcher of iced tea, I mixed in 4 “perfect spoonfuls” (about 10 tsp) of this tea with 3 perfect spoonfuls (about 6-7tsp) of plain lemongrass tea. I used boiling water and stuck the pitcher in my freezer for 2h, then removed the filter (which contains the tea), then after another 2h when the tea was cool, I moved it to the fridge to further cool off so I wouldn’t forget about it overnight.

The smell of the dry leaves is VERY fruity and citrusy, but the taste of the chilled tea is more tart with a citrus aftertaste. I don’t think my lemongrass mixture would have affected the taste dramatically; if anything I believe it cut the crazy tartness hibiscus usually has to a more pleasant level. I found this iced tea I made to be tart, a little sour, and a bit citrusy, but overall refreshing. Between my husband, his friend/coworker, and myself this tea will go in no time. However, with that being said, I do not think I will repurchase this one due to the fact the hibiscus tartness is the main taste. I will try to cut the steeping time wayyyy shorter to see if that helps, but overall I know there are better teas i can use to mix herbals with and make iced teas.

drank Honey Bee by DAVIDsTEA
9 tasting notes

My favorite mate and go-to wake up tea – most mates are a little on the bitter side, or are paired with spicy flavors to mask that, but this one is sweet and smooth. The honey smell is admittedly very strong and might bother some people who are sensitive, but I love to bury my nose in it.

Absolutely delicious iced! Too much melon could be cloying, but it’s light and refreshing instead!

drank The Buzz by DAVIDsTEA
9 tasting notes

Super caffienated with one heck of a ginger burn at the end! I couldn’t taste much other than the ginger, but that hardly matters, because it will wake you up AND burn any nascent cold or ick out of your head/face/throat. An awesome kick in the pants.

Preparation

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
9 tasting notes

Not quite as strong as I might have hoped, but still a delicious tea that actually tastes of apple. The vanilla isn’t overpowering either (a plus!), which I might have expected from something with ‘custard’ in the name.

Flavors: Apple, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Everything I want in a flavoured black tea – rich AND sweet AND warming! I’m more of a green or white person, but I love how the buttered rum overrides bitterness from the tea, even if you oversteep it a little.

Flavors: Rum, Vanilla

Suuuper tasty! If you like buttered rum or butterscotch flavors then I bet you’re going to like this. These flavors are STRONG. Some might call it artificial, however I think it’s perfectly enjoyable. It has coconut in the ingredients, but it doesn’t come off as very coconut-y at all. I especially enjoy that this is a black tea and not herbal — I’m a glutton for tannin. You can even drink this sugar-free and still enjoy the flavor going on! However, I recommend this with brown sugar or honey.
