Recent Tasting Notes
I’ve been avoiding this one for two reasons. 1) I already have a bunch of Forever Nuts and I was worried they’d be similar and 2) I hate anise. However I ended up buying 25g anyway and it really is pretty tasty. Predominantly cinnamon and cooked apple with lighter notes of other spices and brown sugar. Very nice fall tea
Flavors: Apple, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Spices
I finally got to redeem some frequent steeper points at DAVIDs! I spent so much money on tea during the summer through iced teas and gifts I had enough for 150 grams free. I redeemed it all on Butterfly Jasmine (which is nearly $60 of tea for free!). I also decided to pick 12 grams of this tea up to give it a try. I know I already have a spicy tea and have been avoiding buying similar teas, but I wanted to try this since it sounds so unique.
I brewed it up in a tea pot- about half the leaf with 1.5 L of boiled water,. Steeped for at least 5min before pouring a cup for myself and husband. The taste is first ginger, followed by a slight sweetness from the apple and flavouring that almost taste like carbonation (does that make sense?). Really reminds me of ginger ale without carbonation or excessive sweetness. I really enjoy it, and plan on picking up more. My husband also really enjoys it as well and he says it does taste a bit like beer too.
This is the third time drinking this tea and I’m still undecided on it.
It’s certainly peanutty, kinda bland and watery. I think it’s neat that there’s no peanut in it (just almond) but tastes like peanut. There is a bit of chocolate in there but it’s watery.
However – you need to steep this one right to get the flavor. Boiling for around 4 or 5 minutes does the trick. If you steep it longer than that, it becomes more apple and tart in flavor which really tastes pretty yucky. Oh and adding extra tea helps get more flavor. But it is certainly too watery to make it with milk.
Meh. I think a Peanut Butter Cup tea can be done, but DT missed the mark.
Ok before I get into the review, I find it odd that the official tasting note mentions “artificial” and yet on their website, it lists nothing of the sort in ingredients.
That said there is something a little fake tasting in the tea, but it didn’t put me off much.
I didn’t find anything especially memorable, and I did buy my cuppa iced and found it super easy to drink. It was gone in ten minutes. There was certainly a lime/fruit element, though any white tea flavour was entirely overshadowed. Also I found it a bit sweet, almost as if sugar had been added to my cup, but I never asked them to do that so maybe it was just the fruity component. Also, I noticed a particular spicy note that I find in a lot of citrus herbal type blends. No idea if I’m the only one who feels this way but its almost a little musty in a way, but with a citrus tang to it.
So while I didn’t mind my cup, and I’d have it again, I’ll definitely be sampling a few more options before coming back round to this!
Lately I’ve been craving iced teas when I’m on the go on my own in the city and I’ve learned the hard way that bringing tea with me when I have bags and whatnot to carry is a terrible idea. If I’m with someone who drives then fine, but otherwise I’m stuck buying beverages or just bringing water. I never leave my waterbottle behind… somehow its only the tea related ones that get lost!! shrugs
This is basically apple cider. Which is a good thing! I’m not really a big fan of apple cider, but I can appreciate what this has going for it – spicy, sweet and very autumn-esque. I’m not a huge ainse fan, either, and I know there’s some in this, so there’s that to deal with, as well. But this is totally drinkable.
I am obsessed with ginger. I’ve tried every kind at my natural foods store and grocery store and I’ve even tried minute amounts of ginger essential oil in sparkling water (not bad, but not necessarily a safe way to consume).
I possess a plain ginger tea (just pure nubs of dried ginger) that I was not particularly fond of as it has a way of going from too watery to oversteeped and peppery rather than pungent.
This tea, however, is not a disappointment. I had doubts upon sniffing it because it smells tart. Once you steep it though, it delivers and brings out these balanced, layered flavours (though I experienced the sweetness as more of a honey topnote than as apple or raisin flavour). The hints of ginger sparkle like carbonation. So far as ginger beer brands go, it reminds me the most of “Natural Brew Outrageous Ginger Ale”.
It genuinely has a smooth, bodied, “ale” feel to it.
I tend to get obsessed with certain teas and not to venture too out of my comfort zone. I can tell this one is going to be a solid, if not daily, standby in cool and warm weather.
Flavors: Apple, Black Currant, Ginger, Honey, Pine, Raisins
I tried a sample of this at the store yesterday. It’s spot-on for hot spiced apple cider. Unfortunately, it made my mouth tingle. I have had allergic reactions to real apples before but never to processed, baked, or tisaned apple. Not sure if this was a fluke, a function of how it was processed, or a fun new level in the development of my allergies…
Oh wow, this is so good! I was looking for a ginger tea at the end of August and picked up some Ginger Pear, but this is much more like what I’m looking for! Absolutely tastes and smells like ginger beer. I was nervous about the raisins, but fear not! There’s maybe the slightest hint of them in the aftertaste and it’s not off-putting. Only complaint is the lack of caffeine and only because I decided to have this for my morning cup but then my new kitten (got her yesterday, she’s so cute!!!) decided to wake me up at way-to-early am. Ah well.
Flavors: Ginger, Raisins
What can only be described as the tea version of orange juice. The flavour is very juicy and fruity and not artificial at all. Tastes great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The caffeine boost is noticeable without creating an energy crash afterwards. Definitely my favourite yerba maté variety to date.
Part of the permanent collection at DAVIDsTEA! Woo hoo!
This is my favourite oolong of all time, and I’ve tried a lot of them. I wrote an in-depth review of this tea on my blog Don’t Worry, Tea Happy, but I’d love to add my 2 cents here. It has a gorgeous complex flavour that transforms in your mouth from buttery to fruity and back again. I’ve reused this tea more than 5 times with good results, and my favourite tea to blend this tea with is peach infusions (if you’re into blending teas, that is). That said, it’s beautiful all on its own without any help.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Plums
This is a strange one… The smell is delicious, but it seems like I’m getting a different taste with every sip, haha. I like cranberry, and I like orange, and I like muffins. I’ve had numerous cranberry orange muffins in my time, and this tea doesn’t really taste like any I’ve had. Maybe it’s the addition of the dandelion and hibiscus doing strange things? I only got 10g of this to try, so maybe there’s more of those ingredients there, or something. And those 10g only got me one cup of tea (minus a resteep, if I so choose), so that’s also a negative. Not enough bang for my buck, I don’t think.
Hello, ginger! I was excited to try this one, though I had reservations about this tasting too similar to Super Ginger. It’s still spicy, but a little sweeter, which is probably due to the apple. I liked this one, but I don’t know if it’s a must-keep for me. I usually only drink Super Ginger when I’m sick, and since this tastes very similar to it (at least to me), I cannot help but associate this with being sick. Which is unfortunate. >_>
I am on a quest for the perfect Rooibos! Unfortunately, this isn’t it. I am still not super excited about chocolate in my tea, although chocolate and Rooibos do go together quite well. It’s the mint that is really out of place here. Mint belongs in an herbal tea – not a Rooibos. It’s still okay to drink, but nothing special. Too bad…the quest continues…
