Recent Tasting Notes
Today i went to DT to pick up some essentials and I thought I would try something new to go. I got this with a bit of skim and agave. Living as close as I do I left the bag in until I got home.
I took a sip just as I walked in the door to discover the bag of floor my dog tore apart… which cutely left dough on his face. But it was a bad experience overall. It tasted like a cup of hot grass with sugar. This definitely wont find it’s way into my cupboard.
Exotica has a lot going on. A lot. I’ve had teas/tisanes in the past with a lot of ingredients, but were ultimately not that complex, but this. This has character.
The scent of the tea is a labyrinthine aroma of spices, sweetness, and lemongrass. At first I smell the cinnamon, but wait, then there’s the lemongrass taking over, and the coconut is flying all over the place.
Actually, that pretty much describes what goes on with every sip too. Although the only difference is that I’m experiencing the heat from the pink peppercorns. Also, the sweetness is hard to describe. Some sips are sweeter than others, and while I can tell that it’s partly due to the coconut, it’s still a little mysterious. It actually kind of reminds me of the sweetness you get from licorice. It’s that same feeling.
The aftertaste reminds me of a kind of Thai curry. And now I want Thai curry.
Sip down surprise. Would I recommend this to you if you were sick? I’d say it’s worth a shot. My throat is better this morning, but who knows why. Could be because of the new Excel cough drops I bought yesterday, could be this, could be because I’ve been downing super-high-in-antioxidant matcha smoothies with lots of berries. Could even be because I got a decent night’s rest for the first time in days. Who knows!
But yes, try this out for a sore throat. As a warning, depending on how much dry leaf you use, it can be a little heavy on the eucalyptus.
I wasn’t exactly excited about buying this because of the medicinal eucalyptus, BUT, I know that in this case, it’s more function than smell/taste.
The smell of the dry leaves is mostly eucalyptus, followed by refreshing peppermint, then the orange. No juniperberry scent which is too bad.
But the steeped tea smells mostly of peppermint with some orange in the background. Smells like a couple other tisanes I’ve had in the past, which were pretty good, so yay, this may be alright after all.
And it really is. It basically tastes like peppermint with some orange. The eucalyptus is sort of there, lending a menthol edge to this, but it’s rather light.
After drinking a cup of this, I feel no different, but to be fair, I woke up a lot better this morning after getting the first decent sleep in days, so there’s not much of a sore throat and what not left to comfort.
I needed this after working over 10 hours yesterday when it was a crazy crazy madhouse at the clinic. So tasty and relaxing. I got a huuuuuge 250g bag to split with my FMIL (future mother-in-law) who loves this tea as well (honestly I was not expecting so big of a bag, like holy moly). So I got home at like 9:30 and yay a DT box waiting for me. :)
This is fantastic! Thanks Emilie for this sample. Definitely adding this to my next order.
I was actually hesitant to try this because of the peppercorns, I thought it was going to be spicy. As I’ve said before I’m a total wuss when it comes to spices, but no worries here!
It’s like an Andes mint in a cup, with a little kick from the peppercorns. So so delicious. The mint is nice and cool on the tongue but the chocolate is rich and mellows it out. Yum. The peppercorns show up as an aftertaste in the back of my mouth. I can definitely see why this is a best seller.
A tropical storm is coming, and the skies are a beautiful grey. This is one of my favorite times for tea, plus its saturday. I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a long time and thanks to Amanda and Nicole, I finally have some DavidsTea!
This has to be the best smelling tea ever. It smells almost as yummy brewed.
So first, I’m trying this without any sugar or anything in it.
I get the minty taste first and a silky mouthfeel. If I didn’t know there was chocolate in it, I honestly don’t know if I would have thought of it, but as it cools I think I taste it more.
It is a nice refreshing wake up tea. I imagine it would be really good with milk and sugar, so I will try that another time. The fact that I can drink the whole cup without any sweetener in it is saying something, and actually, that makes it a winner. My boyfriend said he tastes a hint of spice and I agree. Its starting to rain and now we will visit my favorite tree covered jungle-like park, since this weather makes it the best time to do so!
I was very exited when I saw this blend of Cinnamon and cocoa because I LOVE them together. And even better, it’s a maté (witch is great with chocolate)
Cinnamon is strong and fresh but not too spicy and overwhelming.
The cocoa is still there but less proeminent, smooth and delicious: it’s really a great balance between the two.
Its not sugary, a little sweet, rich and also earthy because of the maté.
I decided to drink it bare without sugar or milk and its perfect that way.
A refreshing cool early autumn evening,all is still and serene for a Friday. So while listening to the nostalgic sounds of KSQM and reading through “Bel Ami” I chose this delicious offering. The flavors of the ice cream is really well emulated in the blend. The sweetness is not too overpowering and satisfies the craving for dessert without the added calories. The warm fragrance adds to the effect of the tea and subtly paints the picture of that slice of cake. It’s definitely a keeper for the sweet tooth. <3
Another sipdown! I’m enjoying this as an eggnog latte. It’s interesting! I had to add quite bit of light eggnog in order to balance the stronger rooibos base. It actually encouraged me to drink 1/3 of the cup promptly in order to make more room to add more eggnog.
The maple icing flavour and eggnog go quite well together. I almost bought the Birthday Cake chocolate bar the other day but remembered that I had it in the spring. But I should have grabbed a couple bars of the Cardamom French Toast!
Not the actual tea, but I tried the chocolate bar the other day and it was totally what I envisioned: white chocolate maple-y icing. That practically sums it up! It was a little too sweet for my liking. After all, what else do you expect from white chocolate. I wouldn’t buy it again but it was still ultra yummy. It makes me crave a Confetti Cake Blizzard from DQ.
Oh! And I couldn’t even taste the rooibos base in it. Score!
I ventured out to DT earlier today to buy the Mist iced tea jug I saw online, but unfortunately, it was nowhere in sight. I’m going through withdrawal not being able to prepare iced tea here.
But since I was there, I thought I’d grab a couple 10g pouches of stuff for my cold, and this just for fun. I normally don’t care for rooibos or honeybush, but wow, this seriously smells like those maple sandwich cookies. Like the rooibos was marinated in gooey maple icing.
The steeped tea smells like that too, and guess what? The rooibos base is behaving. Not too woody or heavy, and the maple really blends well into it.
I would seriously repurchase this, and that says a lot. I love how my empty mug still smells like maple icing. Yeah, all gone already. Off to make another cup.
I finished this one a few days ago. It’s a lovely light limey summer tea. It’s not a tea that needs to live in my cupboard year round; it’s more of a seasonal favorite for me. I plan to pick up another sample of this next spring/summer, but now that the weather is cooling down, I can feel myself gravitating towards the heavier tasting teas.
Whether hot or cold, this Lime Gelato flavor is delicious! I am not typically a lover of lime, but Davids got this one down perfectly by cutting it with the perfect amount of creaminess – well done!
I shared this one with a friend today and now we’re planning a trip to Davids Tea next week so she can stock her cupboard with this one also. Too bad I didn’t buy enough to share, but on the other hand it gives me an excuse to make another trip out to Davids Tea which is always good.
I loved this tea so much, I went back and bought 100g of it in the tea tin. It is super delicious to have in the morning. It is a super fragrant tea which translates well into tasting super yummy as well. I drink it usually without any sugar or milk – but added some in along with rock sugar makes it a really good treat. I usually tuck some in into my tea ducky and it makes a satisfying brew in the morning. It’s nice to switch it up from my regular old earl gray.
From the description, it sounded like it would be super yummy. I smelled it in the store and it smelled like a nice spice cake. After brewing it? I completely hate it. There is something artificial tasting about this tea. After trying to make it work for the last 3 brews (tried adding honey, rock sugar, adding soy/almond/regular milk), I give up. It is not the tea for me and in fact, drinking it makes me slightly nauseous.
