Recent Tasting Notes
I got this tea iced with a little agave at my local DT’s store. I was so excited to try it, because it smelled soooo good. it was delicious. It was cherry tasting at first, but the floral taste came after. A little medicinal aftertaste? Didn’t turn me off though.
I bought some to bring home and will try it cold steeped overnight with no sweetener. I usually don’t add sweetener at home.
Flavors: Cherry, Floral, Medicinal
This matcha is a sellout on the Davids Tea store, the only way you can get it right now is through a sampler pack; so lots of people must be liking it! I tried this both cold with water and cold as an almond milk late. Mixing this cold with just water, was okay; it was sweet green matcha with a hint of vanilla, which did help mellow the grassier parts of the flavor. But made with water, this tea is lacking something, some kind of body or flavor or something. I don’t know that almond milk is the key, though. I also made this as a cold late with vanilla almond milk. In that method, it was hardly green and very mild in taste, the vanilla milk taking most of the flavor. Overall this tea is good, it’s sweet, it’s vanilla, it’s smooth. But it’s sort of just barely matcha. I’ve tried all the teas in the matcha mix pack at Davids and liked the mint the best, as it made the most sense as a partner for the green tea flavor. The mocha matcha was odd and my least favorite of the bunch. So this vanilla matcha is okay, all things considered. If you’re looking for an economical dessert matcha, this is probably a great deal. I think I am going to do some more exploring on non-flavored matchas and see how that goes.
Flavors: Cream, Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla
really yummy iced. it really tastes like Jolly Rancher hard candies. I totally expected this tea to be pink though, but it didn’t color at all! So weird. Did i just have a batch without pink-making ingredients? I dunno. Anyway, it’s light, very sweet and fruity, and I totally want to go to the dep (corner store) and get some hard candies like I did when I was a little girl!
Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Candy, Cherry, Cranberry, Sweet
My goodness! The name of this one doesn’t lie. It’s definitely sweet. I took two sips and decided I would let it cool down and eventually put it in the fridge to chill for tomorrow, ‘cause it’s just too much for me! I know it’ll be a great iced tea though.
I got apple, vanilla, creaminess and sweetness in the tea. Hopefully it’ll be good once chilled.
This tea was a lot more heavy on the blueberry than I would have imagined. More like eating dark chocolate covered blueberries than anything else. Fortunately, I like blueberries AND chocolate, so this gets points from me. There definitely is a certain similarity to hot chocolate as well. Not sure if I’ll pick some up, but enjoyable.
Flavors: Blueberry, Chocolate, Creamy
I had this one in my cupboard for quite some time before trying it. I tried it iced. It was pretty good, but I wasn’t blown away by it initially. I went to get a second brew out of the leaves and the scent given off by the leaves was very pleasant and familiar. So, I think I really like this one, but just had to get used to it. It may become a regular in my iced tea rotation. Makes a great iced tea. If you haven’t tried it, you definitely should.
I remember this tea catching my eye when it was first part of DT’s lineup, but I never got around to buying some, so I was glad to see it resurrected as an online-only purchase.
I just love this tea – it’s the perfect mix of sweet, fruity bananas and creamy, nutty coconut. A lot of a fruit teas tend towards tart flavours – which can be fine under certain circumstances, but I’m glad to find a caffeine-free fruit tea that doesn’t take that route.
I remember having this last summer, but never reviewed it.
I put 25 grams of this tea in 2L of boiling water and put the pitcher in the fridge overnight and removed the filter in the morning (approx. 10-12 hours of steeping!) and brought a timolino full of it to work. Oh my goodness, this is just as good as I remember. It’s very fruity and tastes like peach juice (without near the amount of sugar, though). There is a slight artificial taste to it, though. But overall it’s a nice, refreshing, summer treat :).
Flavors: Fruity, Peach
As far as chai goes, it’s not as strong tasting as I am used to. It is a good warm up. Next time I will let it steep more. I did enjoy it, but it is not the flavor I was looking for. So this would be in the book world a case of the accidental browser. Where you read a book you had expectations for but went in a different direction. It surprise me, especially with the scent of the tea.
Books recommended for this tea are: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami, The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon
Sigh….oh David, you know I love you, but this tea…I’m not sure what you were thinking. How do apples, mint and coconut somehow taste like pickles? All I taste and smell are dill pickles when I drink this tea. Like, minty dill pickles. I find most teas at least drinkable but I have poured my tea down the drain every time I’ve re-tried this one.
Cold brewed this, unsurprisingly, since I do that with almost all herbals these days. It’s almost straight up coconut this way and I didn’t detect any honeybush whatsoever. I actually forgot it even had honeybush in it until I got to this page. I barely tasted the cocoa in it, either, but I suspect that it would come out more if one were to steep this hot. Overall, it makes a light, creamy coconut cold brew, so naturally, I’m happy with that. I could see myself picking up 50g more of this sometime but I’m not in love with it or anything.
I tried this tea with cold water, mixed in a bowl with a whisk. This is pre-sweetened and was plenty flavorful without sugar or milk. This was minty, creamy, and green like a sweet smoothie version of Moroccan mint tea. I’m of the opinion that green tea and mint have a long, successful relationship together and are a great iced tea choice on a hot day. I tried this tea from the sampler set from Davids Tea, and the pouches are a little problematic. The amount of tea in each pouch is meant for their 16oz matcha shaker, so there’s a little bit too much tea for mixing in a matcha bowl. I tried compensate by adding a bit more water, but then it’s harder to whisk. Of the flavored matchas I have tried so far, this was a pretty good choice and a logical flavor to combine with the grassy green matcha.
Flavors: Cream, Grass, Green, Mint, Spearmint
Finished this one off cold brewed, which is probably how I should have prepared it to start. It was definitely better prepared this way; though there were cons too. For one, it seemed to have significantly more ‘floaty’ bits, and the cocoa notes felt really out of place. However, the coconut was phenomenal and much more rich, creamy and dominant like I’d expected it to be in the first place.
The honeybush was still strong too; but not as strong. I think the natural flavour of honeybush actually really compliment the coconut too. And I suppose, with the ‘floaties’ adding to the mouthfeel it almost made this taste like coconut water with coconut pulp. Almost.
This was a better way to finish off the blend; but I still wont be buying more. It’s just not as impressive as the other summer teas, and I’d also worry about buying a larger amount and, since coconut is so abundant in the ingredients, having it turn before drinking all of it.
