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…

This one grows on you. I now have a tin, and the first time I tried it I thought I wouldn’t finish the cup. Mmm!

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.

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA

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.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA

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!)

drank Bravissimo by DAVIDsTEA
3 tasting notes

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.

This tea is absolutely lovely. I’ve stocked up to make sure I’m good for at least winter! This tea is great with nothing in it, but is divine when you make it into the pumpkin latte! Milk, Whip Cream, and Cinnamon boost this tea to maximum enjoyment!

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

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.

This is on my list of “next purchases” from Davids! Can’t wait to try it.

Love this tea, it is my #1. So comforting hot and even better with some steamed milk! The pink colour just adds to the wonder of this great tea! And caffeine free, so I can have it morning or night!

I had this cold brewed yesterday. I am decreasing the rating a little bit because it was a little artificial tasting.
It was still yummy and sweet.

The pairing of white tea which is my favourite and mango which is my favourite fruit!!!! Loved it! I still need to try it cold-brewed though, I suspect it will be awesome!

Drank this with Mom – yes! I got her to try looseleaf! And enjoy it! Her favourite flavour of anything is chocolate orange, so I thought this would be a great tea to coax her over to the dark side with. No luck yet, but I will keep trying.

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.

lucky girl, these mixups never happen to me… I want an opp to see the awesome customer service to :P

TeaBrat

good customer service always makes me happy…

Cattibrie

I love the customer service at David’s.

DaisyChubb

Great story!!!
I admit, I’m a little sick of hearing excuses from other customers of other company’s poor customer service. I don’t really complain, but any time I’ve had a bad experience with another company, so many people jump to attack me saying that this is what customer service should be.

Oh no, Davids truly shows what customer service is all about. Thanks for sharing De :)

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 . . .

I like this tea, the raspberries really add a different flavour that I like. This isn’t my go-to tea but it is nice for something a little different

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!

Tina S.

Try it with Cinnamon Rooibos Chai – its delightful!

tigress_al

Thanks for the suggestion, I will certainly try that!

teabean

Sounds delicious! Will have to try it this way sometime!

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.

I just tried milk in my Read My Lips this morning and it really does go well together :D

I have now finished my tin from Valentine’s day that came with chocolates. I will miss this tea. It is still the yummy minty chocolate tea that was one of my first DAVIDsTEA experiences!
Hopefully, my husband gets me more for Valentine’s day!

This tea is such an amazing combination of mint and chocolate. Those little red lips just make it so cute to look at too! This is great to drink on a Sunday when you have time to actually enjoy a nice cup of tea!
I wonder what this would taste like as a cold brew? I will have to give it a try!

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 :)
