Apparently this is the tea to drink for me this week. It’s been nice having this on my morning commute in to work. A slow warm wake up while travelling on the subway

I’m loving this tea more and more. Perfect blend of mint and chocolate without being too intense and overpowering.

It’s a great tea! I now have a good stash of it :D

I wasn’t quite getting a watermelon scent from the dry notes. Definetly fruity though.
Upon steeping the smell nauseated me, I definetly would not be able to drink this one hot. Once I poured it over ice it had a very slight pink colour, but was more yellowish. I couldn’t wait to take a slurp of this. I got no watermelon flavour from it. It tasted like bubble gum (similar to Teaopia’s Aztec Gold, except more flavourful).
All in all I enjoyed the tea, just wished it tasted more like watermelon

drank Strawberry Shortcake by DAVIDsTEA
123 tasting notes

Another sample that came with my David’s Tea shipment. I appreciate the opportunity to try it, but I don’t think I’ll buy it — it was fairly ordinary sweetish, kinda fruity, but it did not proclaim either strawberries or shortcake to me.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

This is one where I asked for a whole tin filled even before trying it. It came up to 154 grams. I love chocolate and orange so much that I was confident I’d like it no matter what. I wasn’t disappointed and did enjoy it quite a bit. Very rich chocolate and orange flavours. Nothing mistaken or muddled about it.

My only complaint was if I used too much tea and did a long steep, I would start to get an aritificial, almost chemical taste pop up in the orange flavour. This normally doesn’t occur when I steep it right though.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

This one is much like advertised. Lime and cream with some green tea kick.

I like how the flavour flows. It comes through immediately rather than on the aftertaste. I find that the creaminess doesn’t come through on a cold steep. So steep hot first and flash freeze is the best for me when I want this one cold.

I wasn’t sure how I felt about this one when I read the description, but it was definitely worth ordering. I don’t know what it reminds me of, but the taste is familiar (in a good way).

drank Bamboozled by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

I like this one! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel given that my luck with bamboo teas (aside from the Bamboo Lychee Sencha I had found locally). This one is nice. There’s more fruitiness than bamboo, which I prefer.

drank Northern Lights by DAVIDsTEA
123 tasting notes

Stunt tea, strange and wonderful. Drinking it plain, there’s a tinge of sweetness from the apple pieces but mostly I’m getting peppermint and juniper. Very palate-cleansing!

And very weird. But definitely worth at least sampling, if the description appeals to your taste, imagination, curiosity, whatever.

drank English Rose by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

I am a fan of rose teas, and this one is no disappointment. I like how the chocolate softens the rose. I’ll have to order it again in a few months when it is cooler so that I’ll have more non-melted white chocolate pieces in the blend.

drank Prairie Berry by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

I can see why this one is compared to Blueberry Jam, but I like it nonetheless. I do get the maple notes, and the dark oolong base doesn’t bother me like I would normally expect it to (i.e. Carrot Cake).

It’s a good tea but I’m just not enjoying it. The smell from the dry stuff is strong and more blueberry than the tea. I prefer White Tiger by David’s Tea as it was more blueberry goodness :D

drank Strawberry Shortcake by DAVIDsTEA
307 tasting notes

I probably should start off by admitting that I am NOT a big iced tea drinker. As far as I’m concerned, the way to drink tea is hot. I’m literally the kind of person who will brew a nice steaming cup in 30-something degree weather (Celsius!) and thoroughly enjoy it.

So, if this tastes best as an iced tea… I’m probably missing out.

According to my estimation, I made the tea a little stronger than it’s supposed to be, and the flavours still came out being rather delicate — a little too much for my liking. It was certainly pleasant — I enjoyed two steeps of it in my two-cup teapot, but I just found it… not strong enough for the flavour to come through.

I had it both plain and with milk. I think I liked how the flavour worked a little better with the milk added personally, but it did work well both ways.

If you like light-flavoured teas, you might really enjoy this. Personally, however, I like my tea with a little more oomph with it.

drank Cherry Blossom by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve never tried cherry tea so I don’t have anything to compare it to. However I do like this and I can taste the cherries. I accidently boiled the water first… and it still tastes good :D

drank The Immunizer by DAVIDsTEA
630 tasting notes

Getting primarily the minty spearmint flavour. The taste of the spices trail at the end of the sip. I feel that this tisane should be less complex. I am, once again, getting confirmation that I am sensitive to the after-taste of the lemon grass. I am not detecting any floral or citrus flavours in this blend.

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA

Wow, this smells exactly like buttery, caramel corn! Yum! I really want to make some popcorn right now. But I’ll settle for having this tea instead. Or at least I’ll try this first and then see if the craving is still around. ;)

The ratio of green tea leaves to apple and popcorn pieces is about 1:20, so I’m interested to see how tea-like this is. I also probably could have gotten two cups out of this sample, but I just dumped the whole thing in my strainer without measuring. :P

The brewed tea aroma is also caramel corn with an added component of green tea. I’m not sure the combination is all that appealing. The other popcorn/caramel corn teas I’ve tried have had black tea bases. The taste will be the deciding factor though.

Wow, this flavor was completely unexpected from that aroma! It doesn’t taste like caramel corn at all. It also doesn’t taste anything like buttery popcorn. Instead, it tastes exactly like caramel apples! I guess that’s what DAVIDsTEA gets for putting tart apple in here and trying to pass that off as popcorn. Surprise! Apple tastes like apple!

This is actually pretty incredible. I’ve never had an apple tea that really tastes like genuine apple. And the addition of the caramel takes it from nice apple tea to awesome treat tea! For all you people out there combining Red Leaf Tea’s green apple matcha with caramel matcha in hopes of making a caramel apple tea, try this instead!!! It’s not what it promises (because it tastes nothing like popcorn), but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fantastic tea! It just needs to be renamed. :)

Thank you Ninavampi for sharing this delightful surprise!!!

This is tasty stuff! I don’t prefer as much flavored tea as I used to drink but this is really good!

Glad you liked it!

I wasn’t sure if I’d like this tea because I’m not a fan of flowery teas but I quite enjoy English Rose. The rose flavour is really powerful so beware. I think it’s a great desert tea, I had it alone and it was just as nice. For those who might find the rose flavour too strong I would recommend having it with something to eat.

I drank it plain and it was wonderful. The white chocolate makes it rich.

drank Mango Madness by DAVIDsTEA
7630 tasting notes

Tried this iced and still not impressed. I’ll have to try a few more white teas to see if it’s that particular type of tea that I’m not partial too or if it this particular tea. While it tastes nice, the flavor isn’t strong and there is a bit of an after taste I don’t like. I’ll try it a few more times to make sure but likely on my list of things to share with someone else who might love it.
