What I love about making this tea is that it smells amazing!
But that’s about it. It just tastes like a bland green tea, which is strange since it is supposed to be sweeter. I’d recommend it only because of how it smells.

drank Pom Cider by DAVIDsTEA
3 tasting notes

This tea was recommended to me but oh man… it was pretty gross. I’m glad I got a free cup of it. It does not taste like pomegranates or cider, it was just a very artificial fruity taste that was awful. Not the worst I’ve had, but I wouldn’t get it again.

Flavors: Artificial

drank Honey Lullaby by DAVIDsTEA
263 tasting notes

I am not usually a fan of chamomile. I told the Tea Guide at Davidstea this after she mentioned the new tea launch for this one. She mentioned to me that she usually isn’t a fan of chamomile either, but didn’t mind it in this tea. Intrigued, I decided to try a little bit. Man, was that Tea Guide ever right. This is a fantastic cup of tea! Very soothing and flavorful. A great comfort after a long day. This might be my new bedtime ritual tea.

Mocha-check! Orange-Check! This is a different combo for me and I wasn’t sure I would like it, but it is pretty amazing. I only wish I had some biscotti to dip in it.

drank Cocoa Boost by DAVIDsTEA

Tastes similar to Mocha Latte (also from DavidsTea). I can definitely taste the cocoa in it. It’s not a bad tea, I just prefer the Mocha Latte tea over this one.

drank Cherry Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
4 tasting notes

This steeped weaker than I expected but that is prob. because I didn’t have the silicone part attached to the inside part of the lid of my DAVIDsTea travel mug so the pressure (from the hot water) in the mug couldn’t build up properly :-( I bet it would taste better next time if i did it right.

drank Blueberry Muffin by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

Excuse me, but is this a baked good or a tea? Because this tea tastes exactly like a fresh blueberry muffin straight out of the oven. It’s on the sweeter side, but nothing unbearable. The tartness of the blueberry cuts through the sweetness a tad bit. Definitely an excellent dessert tea. I’ve steeped the same tea ball 3 times now and the flavor isn’t any weaker than the first cup. All of the aromas blend perfectly together to smell like a blueberry muffin. I do detect a whiff of hibiscus, carrot, and raisin.

Flavors: Blueberry, Carrot, Custard, Hibiscus, Raisins

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
4 tasting notes

This was the first full size DAVIDsTEA I ever tasted. I picked this one out after they told me I could have any full size tea I wanted for free when I signed up for their rewards program. This one stood out to me as a very interesting smell, so I picked it for hot brew. I assumed they used 1 DAVIDsTEA Perfect Scoop, however I do not know the exact water temperature :-/ Unfortunately, I think I might be allergic to something in this tea as I think my throat felt like it closed every time I took a sip even though I thought it was quite delicious :-( I looked at all the ingredients in the tea and I think it might be the cardamom since I don’t think it’s rooibus itself because I had a small sample of the Buchu Superfruit before and didn’t have the same reaction.

This tea is indeed quite creamy and also smooth. I really enjoy it with a bit of sugar added. Probably my favourite straight oolong as well.

This was my very first loose leaf (and DAVIDsTEA) steep at home. I used my new DAVIDsTEA Rosy Pink Origami Travel Mug and because I couldn’t figure out how to get my electric kettle to work, I just boiled some water in the microwave using a glass Pyrex measuring cup. I then poured it into the mug and then used my new Pink DAVIDsTEA Perfect Scoop to measure out 1 Perfect Scoop to put in the infuser and steeped for 5 minutes exactly. I think it came out WAAYY too hot bc I put the water in the microwave for too long. I also left in the “leaves” in longer than I should have after the steeping time. I think it came out too strong, but even still I LOVE the hibiscus!!! But maybe it would have been more balanced if I didn’t steep as long or leave the leaves in while drinking? Anyhow, I don’t see it being one of my “everyday” teas, even though I rated it quite high. I think next time I am going to only use half a Perfect Scoop (if that’s possible to get exact enough). It will be less calories too….10 calories for 16.9 ounces instead of 20 calories :-P

Taste like a bitter version of Hot Chocolate puerh tea… (wich I dislike at first) Do you have so much leftover ingredients that you have to make this tea to get rid of some of those?

Unoriginal, and not very good IMO.

This is the tea of all teas for me. With the genuine gingerbread cookie smell and the smoothness of the flavour its delicious. It’s not overwhelmingly strong but I feel like its a tea my tastebuds can really pick up without it having to be some crazy intense fruity sensation as many “flavourful” teas are. Having one of my few remaining mugs of it now and I’m terribly upset David’s has not brought this one back!

Flavors: Bark, Ginger, Honey

In my opinion, this is the only tea from the last year or so that taste unique or different than one of their other teas, wich is good.

Good hot or even cold (surprisingly!)
