Recent Tasting Notes
So, I ordered this one online. It sounded really good.
I get it and open it up… and unfortunately the smell of this one was overwhelming, but not in a good way. From a distance it smells it good tho. It’s just up close where it smells funny to me.
Taste… I couldn’t do it. The funny smell that I had smelling it up close transfered to the taste. It smells too artificial or something, so that’s the taste that I had. I took like three sips and had to toss it. It tastes too funny to me. I didn’t get any cherry taste at all.
I really wanted to like this one, but I can’t do it. :(
Davids really does know how to do a warm, toasty, nutty tea!
i agree with some of the other posts; similar to toasted walnut and secret weapon, but when you’re doing it right, i say keep doing it! the coconut comes out as a nice finish at the end as well. and i don’t really taste the raisins, but that’s not a bad thing ;)
i bought ‘The Gentleman’s Collection’ for my dad for his birthday, and he really liked toasted walnut, which was in the “Tea Aficionado” collection, so i think he will be pleased!
oh, the only downside, i made sure to have a nice 1 1/2 tsp. of tea AND one big whole brazil nut, but then that only left enough for one more cup from my 10g sample. yes, i know, i wasn’t expecting to get a ton out of it, but those nuts are pretty heavy and bulky! it is on the low end of their price range though, so i guess that makes up for it :)
umm… how is there no hibiscus hiding in here?
maybe the strawberries were particularly tart at the time of freeze-drying?
oh how disappointing, it’s all strawberry and no shortcake. and not a good strawberry at that. pooh. ahh well, will have to try this one iced as well i suppose!!
uugh, i keep drinking it too! stop!
ahh this one is so strange! i really can smell the chocolate, the vanilla and the strawberry all at once.
it smells milky, like ice cream, and a bit more toasty, which is probably coming from the black tea.
really interesting. everything combined makes it kind of a mash of flavours in your mouth, but it’s not bad.
the strawberry and chocolate go well with the vanilla coming along at the end. i find the sprinkles and stevia barely sweeten it at all, just a little hint to convince you it’s a desserty tea.
i did steep this using one of the DAVIDsTEA filter bags, which are really fine, so i didn’t get any ‘scumminess’ that some of the other reviews mention. and to be honest, i don’t really like to see those colourful sprinkles with all their colour oozing out as it steeps! so a bag is definitely the way to go for this tea, i think.
it’s very different! and i must say that after trying the Birthday Cake tea, i didn’t think i was going to like any of the other cake teas, but i think it was just that too-sweet rooibos. the black tea is definitely a good pairing for these flavours.
overall, i like it! a nice novelty tea to have around, i won’t stock up but i will probably get some more just to have :)
hooah! this one smells so sweet it’s giving me a headache!
i really should be reviewing it when i’m more in the mood for a sweet, fruity tea, but i have all these new black teas to try and i figured a marathon taste test was in order (so, staring with the one that is disagreeing with me the most…)
yeah, such a sweet smell. i’m guessing it’s the acai powder.
i’m thinking it would be nice iced though. and as they’ve released it just in time for summer, i bet that’s what they were intending.
oh very surprising! it doesn’t taste even 1/4 as strong as it smells! it’s pretty nice actually, though i can’t say i think the black tea was a good choice. it’s somewhat overpowering in the aftertaste, coming through a bit bitter after those sweet, sweet berry scents.
i don’t know, it’s okay i guess. what a weird one! i probably won’t buy it again, but i’ll finish the cup.
