drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
307 tasting notes

This is the first tea I’ve ever just wanted to LOOK at. The glitter is quite pretty in the light — I was jokingly calling it the Twilight vampire of teas.

The taste reminds me of Bigelow’s Constant Comment with the combination of orange peel, cinnamon, and cloves. However, the vanilla adds a different touch. The vanilla actually comes through much clearer than the orange, though. I’d like more of a balance between the two. That being said, the amount of sweetness added through the sugar balls and crystals is perfect.

Perhaps it’s just my love of constant comment, but I can’t say that this tea is my favourite without improving on the taste I already love. However, it’s a very nice take on a simmilar flavour pallette. I would love to have a cup of this while having an orange cake — I think that would be the perfect compliment, and add more of the orange flavour that I crave to taste more clearly in the tea.

I steeped two and a bit teaspoons in my two-cupper. First cup at five minutes — clear was very pretty. Second cup — some time later, with milk. I actually preferred it with milk — it added another nice layer that matched with the vanilla, and didn’t seem too bitter. However, it wasn’t anywhere near as pretty as it was clear. I guess you can’t have everything…..

I’m not a rooibos fan. I’ve found the methyl salicylate in “red tea” can be too pronounced for me and adds a mint flavor to everything. This one was different.

The fragrance was a soft, spicy coconut and it held through to the flavor. This was a warm, not hot, chai and the spices balanced with the coconut well. This is decaf so it’s a nice selection for fall or winter evenings.

Ended up biting the bullet and got a 50g bag in my last order. A very weird day today, so this seemed like the perfect night time post workout tea. And it was! Very tasty, and my bag seems to have more lavender in it than the sample tin from the advent calendar! Hmmm….. Taking away all the craziness from my Monday. Thank you, Jessie Farrell!

I just made a cold brew of this one, never had it before iced, it’s really good!

TassieTeaGirl

Yeah? I’ll have to try it iced then! Thanks!

Unexpectedly enjoyable. A lavender tea? It sounded quite weird before I tried it, but I’d learned to trust in David!

Turns out its very comforting, just like the scent of lavender. But I think the taste comes more form the rooibos and coconut, it tastes nothing like I imagine a sprig of lavender would! All in all a very enjoyable tea.

I wanted to love this one. Like, if I was on a desert island this is the tea I’d take love it. Like, I vow to take this tea above all others for the rest of my days. And in theory, I should’ve. I’m an earl grey fan. And I like berries. And I’d previously tried and liked both Davids earl greys and berry teas. And this one smells truly amazing in the wall tin/bag. Just stunning. But see, I’ve gone through my 50g bag I actually bought in person in a shop, and I’m always left wanting. There has been a bitter aftertaste with every mouthful of this tea I’ve tried, and I’ve varied the temperature and steep time, changed the level of sugar/agave I’ve added (yes, tried to get both to work), and nothing. Well, nothing a amazing as this tea smells (dry and steeped). It’s mightily puzzling and disappointing. Will just have to stick with my other earl grey faves, Cream of EG and Countess of Seville.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
19 tasting notes

Was pretty good. Smells like pie and sugar. I didn’t get as much of the pumpkin (either in smell or taste) as everyone else, but it was still a very good cup of tea. Also, it got way better, in my opinion, after it cooled to room temp.

I having my first few sips and so far it is yummy! Minty but not too extreme. I hope it is back next year so I can get more than the little bit that came in the holiday collection.

drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
556 tasting notes

The carrot flavour is not as pronounced as I was led to believe by the name of this tea. I can mostly taste the flavour of coconut mixed with the oolong- which is an interesting experience on its own. I’m not sure what the “artificial flavour” added to this tea was for, but there seems to be an unpleasant taste (which can be described as “artificial”) in every sip.
When cold-brewed this tea has an unpleasant, sour quality to it.

My first steep today was a bit long (about 4 minutes). Which meant my first cup was a little too bitter for me. The second steep was much better (about 3 minutes). The lemon flavour wasn’t overpowering, more of an after taste. It was a good choice for this morning’s cup.

I simply love this tea – the smell is amazing and it tastes just as great. I suggest to add a little bit of sweetener to it to balance the tangy-ness of it. Makes a great iced tea as well :)

drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA

This is a lovely fruity earl grey. I really liked this as something different but still classic.
I thought that the fruitiness really came out in this tea and gave it a little punch that I wasn’t expecting.
In my opinion, the aroma in the bag is the same as in the tea, and it tastes that way as well!

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

I got this one as the valentine’s tea and chocolate tins from my husband.
I really liked this tea and have been drinking it on Sundays or as a special treat when I deserve one! lol
First, I taste the chocolate, and then the strawberries….chocolate covered strawberries. As I sip more into the cup, I get the floral taste of the rose petals.
My little tin is now all gone, I will be re-stocking this one!

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA
142 tasting notes

Day 23 of my Advent Calendar,

Dry leaves smell super fruity having a hard time imagining Creme Brulée from this.

Steeped still smells super fruity but i’picking up hints of vanilla the liqueur is a nice orangey color.

Time to taste: this taste like tutti fruity bubble gum not creme brulée …. not bad but not what i was expecting either…

I actually didn’t love this tea. Could be the malt but I found that it left a funny after taste. I may try it with various milk/sweetener combinations to see if that makes a difference but so far this is not a re-purchase for me and I’m generally a HUGE DT fan.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel drinking Eucalyptus in any form. I was not feeling 100% as of late and it is always worse in the morning, so I decided to brew some of this today. It tastes better than it smells. You can really taste the Orange peel in it, and you can feel the cooling from the peppermint. It has opened my sinuses, and has soothed my sore throat. It’s a keeper. I always prepare myself for the worst taste when drinking “remedy” tea’s—this one is pretty good :)

Waking up in my house surrounded by Snowy Landscapes.
While listening to this song : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrBZeWjGjl8

The music and this tea goes along perfectly.
A perfect balance between the light ambiant/flowery tones of the Sri-Lanka leaves
and the energic/spicy beat of the Assam leaves.

In fact, this blend goes just along with my morning.
I love so much Sri-Lanka tea that I couldn’t make a bad review of it…

Seriously worth the money.
It’s a pleasant decent cheap tea.

Don’t expect a very unique flavor here.

Have a good day my friends!

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
7 tasting notes

The first time I had this tea, I hated it. It tasted purely like orange peel. This is my first time having it in a while, and it tastes more then fine! I decided to throw in a little sugar, to take the tad bitterness out of the tea, but even beforehand I enjoyed it quite a bit. I recommend it to anyone tempted by the great combo of chocolate and oranges!
