drank Dreamsicle by DAVIDsTEA
65 tasting notes

Dry, the tea had the same “off” smell that the Buttered Rum I tried had. Still, I grabbed 10 grams and brought it home to try.

Stepped, that smell is gone, or at least tempered by the citrus. It’s all just lovely, light citrus. There is a green foamy… scum around the edges of my mug and infuser, but I’m not worried.

The taste is nice. Green tea and citrus, and a smooth ending. I really like it. Not exactly like a Creamsicle, like some are claiming, but it’s a nice combination of fresh and comforting.

Chocolate and a hint of heat. Pretty good.

A really yummy tea, amazing in a chocolate milk latte! If only I could stop myself from eating the little mint chocolate nibs in the tea…

drank Forbidden Fruit by DAVIDsTEA

This is probably my very favourite tea of theirs right now – I ended up buying a whole tin of it when I found out it was gone at the end of the month! It’s great hot or iced, with just a little bit of sugar to satisfy my sweet tooth. The melon flavours are probably strongest but you can definitely taste the fig as well. This is one of the first oolongs I’ve had and I really like it.

Backlogging

Repurchased this because my hubby’s sinuses bother him during the colder months. The combination of peppermint, ginger and black pepper does the trick for him. Plus I believe the hojicha is a bit lower in caffeine, so since he works late it’s okay to make a pot of this when he comes home.

Personally, it has definitely grown on me. Not a favourite, but I like the spice combination. Some of the other teas you can get for the sniffles have ingredients I don’t like. Such as Gail’s Cold Remedy, which has lemon grass (gross!).

So overall I like this tea, but if I drink it too often it can rub me the wrong way. I increased the rating from last time, because it’s a cold season staple in our home.

My wife adores this tea for when she gets her migraines. Occasionally, I’ll reach for a cup, but not often.

De

I do drink it a lot for migraines, but I agree that it can rub the wrong way. I can usually only do one cup at a time. I think it’s the licorice in it, it just gets stuck in the back of my throat. Which is too bad.

Dorothy

Yeah the combination of spices and licorice is pretty potent. The first time I sniffed the DAVIDs canister I wanted to sneeze. I guess it is like putting too much of one spice in a dish; a little bit is nice but a lot is revolting.

Smell: In the bag, the spices really jump out at me. While smelling this at the store I had the urge to sneeze. Brewed, its still pretty much the spices that stand out.

Flavor: I’ve said this before but, when there is peppermint in my tea it REALLY stands out. I mostly taste peppermint, spices and a hint of tea. The tea is only noticeable because it gives the drink a nice base.

Aftertaste: Peppermint lingers for a while, which is a nice tingly and refreshing feeling.

Steeps: 1

I am a citrus junkie so this tea was right up my alley. The scent in the package is mouth-watering and as soon as I spotted the big chunks of orange I knew I was in for a treat. I was delighted to see it turn not just pink but HOT pink – so cute!! On it’s own it was a little bitter but nothing that a tiny, little pinch of honey couldn’t fix. Delish warm, and although it’s not something I would consider an “evening tea” it went well with my lunch. Can’t wait to try it iced!

I had a cup of this hot yesterday and it was lovely. As per usual, I dumped the used leaves into my mason jar to coldbrew overnight and just finished off the cuppa. It was equally lovely and I don’t feel like I wasted the leaves! I love seeing the leaves all unfurled and pretty.

Coldbrew heaven and I earned it after the honey ginger disaster. I love this tea cold. It’s creamy and sweet and oolongy and just plain wonderful.

Second verse, same as the first. I don’t do many resteeps, because we have 340 teas…there are so many others I want to drink! But I love how gorgeous this one gets as it resteeps, so I went back for another cup today. Still delicious, still wonderful.

After a stressful night and a touch of insomnia, this is just the tea I needed. Calming, smooth, and sweet, this is just the creamy tea to make me smile. Simply put, this tea made it alllll better :)

I’ve been aching for some of this since Jessie first mentioned having some available for swap, but I treasure it and don’t want to waste it, so unless I have the time to do at least three steeps (western style), I don’t touch it. After a really rough day at work yesterday, I rewarded myself with a cup last night, and then I resteeped the leaves twice this morning, one cup to enjoy while waking up and then another for my travel mug on the way to work.

There are few things I enjoy as much as this oolong. I keep trying others, trying to convince myself that they’re just as good, but this is the one that makes me go “mmmm, I love tea”. Jessie, I owe you an incredible debt for this one. I have a full tin of this beauty thanks to her awesomeness and I’m not entirely sure I can ever repay her XD.

This creamy goodness is easily one of my #1 teas.

edit Also, apparently my Steepster-versary was ten days ago, so happy belated Steepsterversary to me!

TeaBrat

Happy Steepster-versary!

Indigobloom

I second Amy’s Happy Steepster-versary!! something to celebrate tomorrow :)

Kittenna

Now I want to try this tea even more! Darn it! I’m never going to get through all my tea if I keep adding new ones to the list…

Amariel

I loved getting it when they had the $1 straight tea promo. Haven’t had it since, but I really ought to have it again.

So when hearing about Davids $1 straight tea promo, my immediate thought was of this tea. I love this tea, but oh god the price >.s creamy and butter and just….guh. Drinking it reminds me why I love tea so very much.

Jessie

I love this promo! I can’t wait till I’m working back at the office near the Bloor West DT. Gonna have some Gyokuro Yamashiro.

Amariel

I think I might be trying some of this with the promo too.

The Purrfect Cup

I wish they had a store in the US! But this is one of my favorites from them. I seriously might crack into the bag I received from them in my latest order, tomorrow!

aisling of tea

Apparently they will have stores in the US before the year is out!

Jessie

It’s absolutely insane how quickly they’ve expanded.

Amariel

It is insane at the rate of expansion!

The Purrfect Cup

@aisling of tea…in the US you say?? I think my heart just skipped a beat!!

Sandra Brassard

My favorite tea of all time…just perfection for me♥
