This was the first tea I tried in the Book of Spells sample pack and man, what a let down. I love sweet, dessert rooibos teas but this was just blehh. I couldn’t decipher the flavors, just got a bit of chemical-ness and some kind of unpleasant after taste. I ended up dumping it. :( Such a shame because I usually love the teas from David’s!
There is some sweet note to this tea and some sour note to this tea, or should I say tart note. When I bought this I actually thought it was a black tea so I was surprised when I took a closer look and saw it was a caffeine free fruit infusion. It is fairly tasty. I am cold brewing this for tomorrow as an iced tea.
Brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for seven minutes.
This is a fairly tasty tea with a lot of sweet flavors going on. I can definitely taste the raspberry and other fruit flavors. Not sure if I taste the mate. It is pretty good.
I steeped this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 4 minutes.
Lovely tea. Tastes like something in-between Sencha Ashikubo and japanese sencha. Not as rich and buttery as Sencha Ashikubo and not as grassy and vegetal as Japanese sencha. Overall a lovely tea and should you chose to purchase this tea then do so quickly since it is limited edition.
Flavors: Bitter, Bok Choy, Broth, Butter, Grass, Green Beans, Honey, Nutty, Seaweed, Umami, Vegetal, Wood
This tea is reasonably good with notes of malt that are very mild. It’s also got a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste to it, not sure however if that’s the tea or my taste buds. I did just finish breakfast.

So, this has come back around Halloween a few times since I’ve been into tea and each time I’ve wanted to try it but have been a fingertips length away from getting my grubby hands on a sample. Not this time though! I finally got some in the Back From The Dead collection.
So, I cold brewed this one ‘cause when I smelled the dry leaf I got a really nice “Strawberries and Cream” aroma and I thought that would translate well to cold preparation. Man does it look ugly though! Very much a puke-ish looking green, but I guess that’s definitely the intention with the name “Swampwater”. That orange and black sprinkle mix really does the trick with executing the name/inspiration of this tea.
The flavour was nice, though a little lighter than I expected given the strength of the dry aroma. It’s very simple, and to me reads as muted/light Strawberries & Cream. I have to say, the juxtaposition between liquor appearance and flavour is a bit jarring and mismatched. But I liked it overall even if it was a little plain and simple.
I’ve been putting off trying my sample pack of this, because I’m trying to sipdown so many other teas I have. This tea is definitely sweet. Wasn’t sure what to expect on this one. The smell reminded me of Mocha Latte, but it doesn’t taste like it. I can taste chocolate, and sort of caramel… But mostly the cocoa beans and husk. Obviously the sprinkles make it sweeter than normal. I’m also not really a fan of rooibos, so this isn’t one that I would buy again.
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Cocoa, Sweet
I bought a small amount to sample this tea since its been discontinued this year. I don’t mind straight oolongs sometimes. This one reminds me of Quangzhou Milk Oolong, also from DT. It has a nice creamy note to it, and I can also taste the oolong of it. I always like how the leaves unfurl when they steep. It’s also a little bit floral. It’s a lovely straight oolong – although I wouldn’t stock up on it. Just glad I got to try it.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral
This is a good tea if you like lemon. It’s also a different type I’ve never heard of called ‘Yaupon’, so that’s interesting. It has a nice lemon flavour and its good with a little sugar or even honey. This tea is also good iced as well. I think its the only one I really enjoyed from the feel good collection.
This is very tasty, sweet and nutty. I can’t really say how sweet because I added the vanilla agave nectar I bought from David’s Tea today. This is a very nice cup for when I cannot have caffeine.

I didn’t especially love or hate this tea but I only got .5oz early in the summer and just finished it off today. It’s got notes of apple and (I think) lychee, but I’m honestly not sure what quince tastes like. If I had the opportunity to get more of this, I might, but I’m not upset that it’s gone.
Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Hibiscus, Lychee
I found that DT has made a lot of desserty teas this year, but I tend to try most of them, and this one is pretty good. When I first tried it I didn’t know what to think. I have tried it as a latte, hot, and iced, and I finally decided I liked it when I had it iced with some sweetener. But now I like it hot as well. It’s really grown on me, so I stocked up before it left.
I definitely get a ‘cake’ flavour in this tea. I think it lives up to its name. I enjoy the lemon flavour too, and I’m getting a kind of creamy taste with this. It’s sweet, but its balanced with the lemon zest. Overall it’s a good tea.
Flavors: Cake, Creamy, Lemon, Lemon Zest
This is a good tea if you like chocolate in your tea. I tend to have this more around October/Halloween time. It tastes strongly of chocolate with a hint of cinnamon-y goodness, and I barely notice the coconut, which is great. This tea is lovely hot, or as a latte. Sweet and chocolatey. It’s all in how you steep the tea, though. Sometimes I get a weird aftertaste with this tea – and sometimes I don’t. I don’t know why.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Creamy
Another straight tea to sipdown today. This one I don’t mind at all. It’s a good quality tea. So I got 50g when it came out, so I could try it. It reminds me of regular orange pekoe tea, but has a sweetness to it that I like. I presume I could steep this a second time as well. I think it would be good with a touch of milk as well, but its just as good without. Very smooth. It’s not a favourite, but I do enjoy it.
