I’m regretting not leaving time for more than two steeps of this tonight. The second steep is excellent. I steeped slightly longer and it tastes a bit stronger.

Wow, this is good. Really good.

I’ve been a bit intimidated to try this as the dry leaf smells so intensely. It’s much more subtle when brewed, but still outstanding. It’s pretty strange that nothing is added to this. I’ve also been scared of liking it too much. All the DavidsTea staff I’ve talked to seems to rave about it, and it’s pretty pricey, and comes in limited quantities. But I’m glad I tried it.

It’s delicious. Buttery but somehow light. I expected it to be very heavy, but it’s just thick enough to feel satisfying while somehow remaining refreshing. I don’t know; there’s a lot going on here. Time for a top-up and a re-steep!

I had big plans to go smell this (and Long Life Oolong because I am more into flavoured than unflavoured tea). Good to know it’s liked!

I wish I could afford to buy several tins of Long Life Oolong and place them around my apartment, as it smells incredible. I tend more towards flavoured teas, too, and haven’t had many unflavoured oolongs, especially ones that I liked. This was really nice!

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA
4322 tasting notes

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending some of this my way!

At first, when I saw the name, I was thinking “why would anyone name their tea swampwater?” eww! And now I see why they call it swampwater, because the color liquid it produces is a very ugly swamp water green.

But… it tastes really good. Sweet and fruity. A nutty flavor in the background. This is really quite tasty!

Tonight I threw in some creme caramel rooibos when making this after dinner. Delicious combo! It tastes like a rich, smooth but not too sweet dessert.

drank Spearmint (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Love love love. Since I had my giant travel mug with me, I figured I’d pop some spearmint in there and save myself a T-Sac. Now I’ve got a big mug of steamy love to wile away the afternoon with.

Ok so reiterating what everyone esle said the smell is to die for! one of my coworkers thought i lit a candle it smells so good, the taste though is a bit disapointing it definately is creamy and a little sweet but i was expecting much more flavor from a davids tea….any way glad i only bought 25 grams this will be something to go to when i need soothing aroma’s around me.

drank Mojito by DAVIDsTEA

How did this become an everyday tea? This is my third steep of a T-Sac that I threw together on Monday. I keep forgetting it’s hiding in my teapot. If I think about it too long, that’s really gross, but the tea still is coming through strong and clear.

Great tea if you like mint chocolate, although very very minty. I liked this tea but don’t see myself reaching for it unless its that time of the month and all i want is chocolate!

Nichole

i’m finally getting around to ordering some David’s Tea and this one sounds fab! Perfect for me, I’d rather have a lot o mint and a hint of chocolate! :) Thanks for the review!

drank Bi Lo Chun by DAVIDsTEA
5 tasting notes

No question, this is one of the best green teas in the world. The taste is so subtle yet so refreshing. A very calming aroma with a slightly vegetal scent. This tea to me defines what green tea should taste like. China has so many amazing green teas and Bi Lo Chun is right at the top!

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA

This tea smells absolutely divine, it was all I could do to keep from eating the leaves outright in the store. I respectfully disagree with an above poster; I think the aroma, while slightly diminished, is still very much present after brewing. That said, I was a bit disappointed with the taste. There’s a bit of a backlash with what I’m smelling, and what I’m actually drinking. It isn’t a bad tea, not by a long shot, just a bit too subtle for my tastes. Maybe I’ll warm up to it the more I drink it.

I woke up cranky, still tired, with low blood sugar, and somehow ran out of time to eat anything before going to work. This is becoming a comfort tea for me when I am cranky and bratty. It feels decadent so it works for me in those moods.

Sometimes it tastes pretty floral and others it’s more chocolate-strawberry. I’m still weirded out by it as the thought of a rose tea kind of repels me. But, clearly I like it! I even just sniffed my empty Libre because it still smells so good.

I really like this tea. It smells sweet, fragrant and flowery, and the liquor is a beautiful, vibrant pale green. Orchid Oolong tastes a little how an orchid smells—fresh, sweet, floral—but with a full body that somewhat grounds the light, fluttery taste. It goes down smoothly and always makes me want another cup, which is great because it’s an oolong that does a super second infusion…

The second Infusion (3 minutes, 85 C) brings a slighter darker, more brown-green liquor. The body has not thinned much, but the tea itself tastes even more floral than before. Mmmm.

2-3 TB for a gourd, 1 packet stevia (equals 2 tsp sugar)

New batch — ai! David, what happened?? This is all bitter and harsh, and even extra stevia ain’t helping. My darling Jumpy Monkey has jumped away? Oooohh, it pains me, but I gotta haul the rating wayyyy down here.

No good! Jumpy Monkey is so tasty!

Batrachoid

Oh, that was one of the ones I wanted to order. I hope they reblend it nicely by the time I order.

Michelle Butler Hallett

I think it’s the coffee beans. The first infusion is quite bitter and acidic. Second, third and fourth much, much better. But holy face, that first infusion is nasty. Never used to be.

Michelle Butler Hallett

I should mention that I reported this problem to David’sTea, and they quickly offered to send me a replacement. We’re talking a 250g bag here. Great customer service.

When I hauled the rating down on this batch, it was doen to 34.

I know exactly what you mean. I keep a fall-back tea handy in my cupboard at all times…
