Recent Tasting Notes
At first, I didn’t like mint—at all. I remember my first experience with peppermint tea in undergrad where the tea got all gross. That’s what made me get turned off by this tea, plus the fact that it had chocolate in it—I never went for those teas. I decided to try this again and was I wrong about peppermint and chocolate! They go really well in tea and I really like this one! Might I also add that mint chocolate is my favourite ice cream flavour?
Still on the fence if I want to purchase a tin of this. Maybe…hm…
I am sipping on this hot right now and to be honest, I could really mistaken this tea to be a herbal instead of an oolong. This is mainly due to the ingredients of mint and lemongrass with little to no taste of the oolong tea—however, oolong is supposed to be a lighter tea anyway.
The mint and lemon come through really well in this tea. I was hoping more of an oolong tea with a hint of mint and lemon. Not entirely disappointed, but not one I would purchase a tin of.
Really warm and tasty tea. This reminds me a lot of the Second Cup Holiday blend, but better. I’m normally not a fan of pears, but I don’t find it takes over too much, so I don’t mind it. The cranberry flavour really comes out nicely too. This is the perfect fall to winter transitional tea.
Absolutely amazing. I think I will be dreaming about this one until I can have my next cup tomorrow. This smells exactly like Terry’s Chocolate oranges and tastes a heck of a lot like them too! I honestly have to say that this is the most chocolatey tasting DavidsTea I’ve tried yet.
Must must must!
(Also, not bad upon re-steeping!)
This is one of the most unique teas I’ve tasted yet. Surprisingly, I always seem to make it and avoid the licorice… What I usually get is a very gentle tasting tea, that once you swallow it, it comes back with a very cool and refreshing sweet peppermint taste. One of my favorite teas to drink as is.
So, I decided to try something different. An employee had suggested some time ago to try this as an iced latte.
I find I like the flavour of most teas cold-brewed rather than iced, so I gave this a try.
I cold-brewed 2-3 tsp of Forever nuts for about 18 hours in the fridge in 1 cup of water. I added 0.5 cup of milk.
It was pretty good, a nice treat, but I like it hot plain, with milk, or with eggnog better.
My first time trying this since the rebranding as Chocolate Orange. I will review it in a moment, but first, gather ’round, people of Steepster, for storytime!
So DT’s new spring collection came out yesterday and, unsurprisingly, we went to sample them all. Yes, all. We are completionists that way. A usual busy day at our local, and they were having some computer troubles. Long story short, my debit card was double-charged, which I didn’t figure out until later when I tried to buy some delicious baked goods at the local bakery. Boo. I called the store and let them know what had happened, they told me to come in whenever, no problem.
Today, I amble up to the store and one of the girls (we call her Not Hipster Girl – they need to wear nametags!) is standing out front with a tray of samples. She gives me a big ol’ grin and says “Hey! Here to get that refund?” “. . . yes. Hi!”
Up to the counter I go, where Manager and Non-Asian Guy (who had been the one to help me yesterday) are standing. “Hey! So sorry about yesterday, totally my fault.” “Oh no, no, that’s okay, I don’t mind -” “Here, we want you to have 50g of one of the new spring teas, whatever you want. Let’s process that refund. Do you want anything to go?” Yes, 50g of tea and two free cups of tea because of a computer glitch. I cannot say how much I absolutely love DAVIDsTEA’s customer service. It’s just phenomenal, above and beyond any other retail experience I’ve had, tea-related or otherwise.
Anyway. Tea. This is the cup I got to go (the other being an iced Orange Blossom for my wife), my usual hot and black. I steeped it longer than I usually do pu’erhs and I’m actually glad that I did. It had such a rich warmth to it, I was actually kinda stunned for a moment. Just this amazingly complex chocolately taste, with all the shades of mustiness that pu’erhs hold. And then the zip of the orange citrus . . . I need to bump up the rating on this, and bring the small amount in our stash back to the forefront.
Yum. I didn’t catch so much of the chocolate, just a hint that is more pu’erh than chocolate, but the orange was delicious. I wouldn’t call it a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, but it is a yummy orange pu’erh. A bit dark for this late in the evening, but would make a good morning wake-up tea. Maybe under the Christmas tree on a lazy winter morning . . .
Mmm, last cuppa of this jem!
I made this on the stovetop this time with half milk and half water. It is delicious this way. As usual, minty and chocolate. Nice Sunday treat! I don’t know if many people make their tea like this or not. But I tried it with pumpkin chai, and then I was curious how it would work with another black tea!
I haven’t had this since December….WHAT?? And somehow I still have my tin from the advent calendar….lol, how did that happen?
This is my weekend chocolate treat black tea with a splash of milk. I had a crazy night shift last night, so I deserve this today before I go to work again.
Anyway, about the tea. With the tiny splash of milk, the flavours really meld together well and the chocolate is nice and smooth. Man, I like this tea. 1 more cup in my tiny tin, I will have to stock up.
Edit: I cooled a cup of this tea alteady brewed (without milk) in the fridge for a few hours and it was delicious.
My boyfriend ordered this as an iced tea to go. When I tried it the first time, it tasted really tart and light. From reading other reviews, it seems like it’s best this way and I agree! Before when I tried it I was kinda like, ‘Hmmm…not sure about this one’. I picked up a small sample bag to try and WOW, the tartness makes this tea. I tried it hot and iced and I think the iced version is the way to go with a tiny bit of agave to lift a bit of the tartness away. This is definitely made to be a summer tea and I think I will purchase this when spring rolls around :)
