Amanda Special Thanks for this!
Trying to get past that…the almonds, pineapple, papaya, and cinnamon is what I can taste thereafter.
The way to go with this one is ICED – it’s too sweet for me HOT – but it’s totally doable cold. As it cools I can also taste the elderberries…and citrus flavors. There is a lot going on here but a brave attempt from DavidsTea. Not one I would buy for myself but darn happy I got to try it!
Thanks to Amanda I was able to try this one!
This one seems to be a hit here on Steepster so I was wondering just what all the ‘steep’ was about!
There are lots of different fruits and petals in this mix along with some candy hearts. It has a small pina colada aroma paired with apple, perhaps. Not that fake Pina Colada either…coconut – YAY!
The taste is pretty amazing! I don’t have much to compare it with! I can taste apple, citrus-family members, sugar (from the candies), floral tidbits, coconut…the hole sha-BANG! I’m totally impressed with the way these ingredients meshed with each other.
I had half a cup hot and the other half cold and both are pretty delightful!
First tea of the day and it did not disappoint, This wonderful smooth pink elixir is full of nutty goodness!!!! it smells of toasted nuts at the mall, you know the ones there roasting in sugar and cinnamon in the center of the mall that you cant help but follow your nose too! Or maybe that’s just me.
I will say the almonds when you first take a sip is there and then it moves to cinnamon and leaves this floral taste on your tongue.
I was so Excited when this tea turned a beautiful pink I kept thinking this is a clear glass teapot tea! It happens to be the beetroot in this tea that makes this beautiful color, Which makes me want to bake with it!
This tea continues to be one of my favourite blacks. Not because I haven’t had better by now – I have. This is just a comforting, don’t-think-too-hard about it tea that I like to have on mornings when I don’t need to go anywhere. It’s light and sweet.
On my last few trips to DAVIDs, I also bought a bunch of their flavoured honey sticks – peach, coconut and lemon – because I am a complete sucker for gimmicky shit like that. I sweetened this with one of the peach sticks, hoping it might come out something like a lighter version of Southern Belle.
It…didn’t, really. I could barely taste peach. I think it might need two sticks, although that tweaks that uneasy part of my brain which is aware of how much sugar there already is in my diet.
And speaking of sugar…I also have a can of Coke in the fridge. You know how they say that once you’re addicted to something, the addiction is forever? I have discovered that my soda pop limit is now something like ONE every few days, and it’s best to keep it to one a week and only sip it a bit at a time. If I do that, I enjoy it. If I drink it more often, the normally-tamed beast of my Coke addiction wakes up and says, “Go get more of that. RIGHT NOW.”
Which I did, the last time I drank too much Coke, too fast. But I have resisted drinking the can I then bought, so now it’s just sitting in the fridge. I’m trying to decide when to drink it, because its presence kind of makes me nervous and I want it gone. And I’m not truly committed enough to clean my toilet with it.
blended with bamboozled. Still trying to use up all of my teas before teavana opens in a couple weeks. SO i used up my green and fruity and i have a little bit of bambooled left.
These two teas actually taste really nice together. Nice and smooth! Aewsome! Happy Thanksgiving (to those in Canada) and good night!
Another yummy iced tea in my fridge. Yay!
You know what this reminds me of? In the Philippines, my aunt would take a cantaloupe, shred it into a pitcher of cold water and ice, and put a tiny bit of sugar. This iced tea has that wonderful melon taste with a watermelon kick. I can’t taste anything other than melon, which can be a good thing since the carrot didn’t really appeal to me.
The only thing I messed up on…I put a cup of simple syrup in without thinking about how sweet the tea would be on its own. I really must learn to taste the iced tea before sweetening it. And sweeten it I probably will because I have an incurable sweet tooth. Luckily, I have more of this (unlike my White Malibu which I’ve consigned to memory) so I can try it straight next time.
And can I just say that the Takeya iced tea maker is awesome!! I got it through a gift certificate to Davids Tea that my sister-in-law gave me for my birthday. It is one of my favourite tea making devices, along with my Steeper, also from Davids Tea.
My second tea that I’ve tried from Davids Tea and my second great review. This is the first Korean tea I have had. Japanese greens are my favorite and I thought that this was similar. It had the same seaweed, grassy taste but it was a little milder than say a Sencha. Overall very good.
this is definitely Mango! Very fresh Sweet taste i think I put a little to much sugar in this one so definitely need to go light on the sugar and let the sweetness of the Mango come threw! I love Mango in the Summer but its hard to find Good ripe ones so this is Perfect for days when i want mango and don’t want the hassle! This is a good Keep it in the cupboard for that special day!
The black tea is too strong for me. Both times at the store and at home when I brewed it, it was a bit bitter. I can taste the blueberries, but the black tea over powers it. Adding agave helped bring out more of the blueberries, adding soy milk was good too. I wish it was more blueberry, and less black tea-y.
Very odd, I never rated this tea? Well that sucks!
I had made this tea cold-steeped – 4 hours.
TASTE: Slightly creamy walnut juice – DONE! Okay okay, also has a hint of sweetness with a background of green tea. No bitterness or tart. Very walnutty and the coconut creamyness go together nicely. I can almost taste the walnut skin. I love walnuts, they look like brains.
COMMENTS: Okay, I don’t like sencha because for awhile people kept giving me sencha fruity teas and I just got sick how they all tasted the same and the tea just came out too strong. Toasted Walnut isn’t like that – the green tea came out wonderful in the cold steep.
Come on, coconut water being really popular? How about walnut juice, yeh!
From what I can recall, hot this tea is more sweet but not as nutty, but I think cold is more interesting with that strong walnut flavor. I could see myself buying more, that or go on a hunt for more walnut teas.
My pomegranate tree is exploding with lots of pomegranates, but still not ready yet! With that said, I kept thinking about this tea. Oddly, I didn’t review it yet, so here it is!
DRY: Sweet tart fruit snack smell. I gotta say this is up there on weird teas – it’s chunky, sticky and clumpy. I think I got scared when I bought this at DT and saw the sales gal scoop it. It’s got that appearance of hot rice crispy treats being spooned out of the cooking pot… but not stringy. I’m a little worried with the shelf life of this tea with it being sticky.
I tasted one of the pomegranate bits and it was tasty!
STEEPED: Pink colour – tart smell, like cranberry.
TASTE: Slight tartness comes out with a hit of fruity – a little pomegranate but could be mistaken for a light cranberry from the tartness. Sweetened with rock sugar, the fruityness is brighter and more pomegranate and less tart.
WHO’D LIKE THIS TEA: Fruity tea drinkers
COMMENTS: I’m happy that this tea has a good level of tart – it’s not overpowering and seems more natural to pomegranate. Overall, not bad but not blowing my mind – this might be good cold steeped though. I feel that I should kill off this tea before the stickyness mutates into something horrible.
Oops – I thought for sure I reviewed this one already!
First of all, I’m a prairie girl (S’toon/Regina) and I loooove S’toon berries. Picking them off a giant plant was the best part about certain campsites. I would just stand there with a bunch of other kids and just shovel them in.
S’toon berry pies can be amazing or really bad – depends on the quality of berry. The big juicy berries make an amazing pie – the small hard ones make a crunchy/chewy type pie.
I digress! This tea smells soooo good – like a sweet, mapley berry pie! Sadly I can’t get the berry taste to come out in the steep. It tastes like a sweet, maple drizzled dark oolong – dry in texture, maybe a Taiwanese?
I’m definitely missing out on the berry flavour I get in the smell.
Okay now the important part! (lol) My birthday is next weekend and I’ve invited some new (non tea obsessed) friends for a tea party! I’m cooking and baking, trying my hand at some gluten-free treats as well, but I was kind of hoping for some tea party advice. I’d like to set up a little matcha tasting bar, I only have one big teapot, any advice or fun ideas on how to sample a bunch of fun teas? Thanks friends!
This is a hearty, strong, bold tea blend – a great AM wakeup cup. I have a hard time judging black teas because they often taste similar to me – plain, or unflavored. So this is good, definitely better than your average run-of-the-mill grocery version, and does its job of waking me up – but other than that, it’s typical. Good, but not something I’d regularly stock as “stellar” from David’s Tea.
Amanda – You spoil me! Thank YOU!!!
This one, at first, didn’t have enough flavor for me. BUT…as I was typing my tasting notes – after it had just a few minutes to cool at room temp…I decided to delete my notes and start again!
While this is super hot – the Vanilla wasn’t all that loud. As it cools the vanilla seemed to come out and play a bit more. It’s still not overly flavored, tho.
The oolong itself is quite nice. A great Pouchong, indeed! In the aftertaste I can pick up a subtle hint of citrus which was a nice surprise.
After I gave this a 2nd chance – it turned out fairly satisfying. If you are looking for super intense vanilla – this really isn’t it, but it’s still tasty with the oolong base.
