Wow. This is exactly what I was looking for in a green tea. Lots of nice green flavour without being bitter. I even oversteeped this due to the afternoon nap battle with my 2 year old and it was still great. Nice light colour and wonderful flavour. When I bought it yesterday I was looking for a fairly plain green tea and I have found it for sure.
well, this is interesting.
The cherry flavour is nice enough. I enjoy cherries… but the hibiscus does all sorts of nasty things here. I so wish that it wasn’t in this tea! Also, the “white” part is barely there. I would think it was some sort of a tisane if I hadn’t seen the label.
Otherwise, it’s decent. Naturally sweet on its own, and mild enough that it soothes my throat (a little hoarse today for some reason)
It may be better iced, fantasic even. Actually I think it was designed to be iced- but really, I am not an iced tea person…
So yeah, I am mucho glad I didn’t purchase any to take home!!
So one of my coworkers gave me this tea as she did not like it. I’m not one to turn down free Davids tea so I took it off her hands for her :) I decided to finally try it before going to bed last night. I’ve had this tea for a couple of months and everytime I go to try some I am intimadated by the smell which reminds of halls cough drops – must be the juniper berries. I made sure to only steep this for 4 minutes as I didn’t want it to be too strong. The tea was not bad but not something I can see myself craving or restocking unless I can see uber health benefits. The taste was way more mellower than the smell but I still mostly tasted the juniper berries.
Finally having day 8 from my advent calendar. I can’t believe that I opened the wrong day when I knew about the gold tree covering the 1 of the 18. ARGH.
Oh well. This is a great tea for tonight because I am having problems falling asleep tonight. My little guy turns 3 tomorrow (today actually since it is after midnight) and we just finished putting all the balloons on his floor and the streamers on his door and I am just so excited for him to get up and see it. I hope he thinks it is cute and starts his day off right. Birthday’s should be exciting and he gets gyped with it being so close to Christmas. Still can’t believe he is 3.
Bit of a strange taste to this but that is the licorice and next time I won’t likely leave the leaves in. I am feeling really tired after finishing this so maybe it will help me sleep.
Nice light colour to this tea and it is a good chamomile tea. Definately prefer this to Mother’s Little Helper. This may be my new night time tea.
Had this iced from the store today. I really enjoyed it and bought some more to try it hot also.
It was sweet and slightly tart. My 2 1/2 year old loved it and stole half my cup full. Nice and fruity but you really don’t get much of the actual tea from it. For all I taste it could be an herbal with no tea in it.
I had this iced from the store, so it’s not the best way to judge it. But, I found it rather tart and not very convincingly pomegranate. I don’t know. I kept thinking cherry instead of pomegranate, and I don’t like cherry flavours.
Anyway, this is kind of a shameful waste of silver needles as I couldn’t taste any of that under the overbearing whatever flavours. It was drinkable, but it felt like I had bought a bottle of some kind of hyper-processed juice, not tea!
I’ve been waiting all week to try this!
When I smelled it today and last week, all I could think of was that this could be my yummy replacement for Strawberry White! of course then I learned that hisbiscus is bad for my tastebuds, but I still wanted to give it a try :)
It’s quite tart (of course) but I am having it with sweetener so that helps a bit. The pomegranate taste is genuine! Tastes just like eating a juicy pomegranate – I like that. The white tea gives it a solid base – it’s not bitter at all in that respect. They must have steeped it well for me today :)
It’s not my favorite fruit or tea but I have to say this would be a great one for tart berry-tea lovers. Yum!
My Problem with most cherry teas is the way that most of the cherry flavor comes across as artificial, this is hands down the best cherry tea I’ve tried
It’s not too sweet, and it has a great aftertaste that lingers in your mouth after each sip
I’m excited to drink this on a regular basis and can’t wait to try the pomegranate
Do I like this tea? I don’t know. I know that I don’t hate it… yeah, I defiantly don’t mind this blend of herbal oddness. I cold steeped a pitcher of this interesting melange of herbs and berries and it’s a refreshing brew for sure. Northern Lights is minty cool with a slightly fruity something or other going on too. I feel compelled to continue drinking even if every sip perplexes me more than the last. I’m refreshed and confused… mostly refreshed.
My mom likes drinking her chai clear.
Now, I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with that (there isn’t) or that everyone should drink tea the way that I do (tastes are tricky, and chai purists would probably kill me). However, I tend to find that most chairs just aren’t right without milk and sugar.
Admittedly, I don’t make chai properly according to traditional rules. I preference is to brew in water and then add milk and sugar as with other teas, rather than making it as a proper milk tea.
In deference to my mom, I had this clear first. It seems nicely steeped, but the spices (cinnamon seems to be the predominant one I taste) were just begging for the sweetness and creaminess that milk and sugar would offer. Indeed, with a splash of milk and a scant teaspoon of brown sugar, the tea came into its own, adding the right richness and fullness to enhance the tea.
I’m not saying that it’s an absolutely perfect blend, but I do enjoy this tea from first scent (strong, you could almost get high off of it) to last sip.
I think I used too much tea, or steeped it for too long this time. Probably both. Which isn’t a problem I’ve had before, but then I think my pallate has been developing.
I can tell you though, it’s still WONDERFUL with milk and sugar. But not as good straight as I remember.
There is no bad way to have this tea! Straight, with milk, sweetened, soy milk…. any combination I’ve tried, it’s wonderful.
One must be careful to make it strong enough, it’s very easy to make a too-weak brew, which is the only thing keeping me from giving it a perfect score. Still, it is probably my favourite of David’s chais, if not my favourite chai overall, and VERY delicious.
Another case of “I liked it but wouldn’t buy any more of it”.
The dry and steeping scent is of apple & cinnamon sweetened oatmeal or maybe apple crumble.
The taste is much the same, but weaker. I’d steep it for longer next time to see if that strengthens the flavor, as it was at 4 minutes it was a little watery.
It tastes mostly of apple, red apple flesh in this case, with a hint of cinnamon sweetness in the nose and a toasted flavor around the cheeks just as you finish your sip.
It’s much more an apple drink than anything else. Would likely be loved by those big on fruit tisanes, but I’m not one of those. Again, I think it’s good as a fruit tea but I, personally, wouldn’t get any more of it and will be trading a lot of it.
1 microwavable glass jar with a lid
4 0z of 1% milk
1 16oz mug
1.5 tsp Cream of Earl Grey
12oz of hot water
Pour milk into jar, place in microwave (in my micro) set timer to 1:20 minutes and hit start. Steep tea as usual. Take Jar out of microwave screw lid on tightly and shake. Pour over steeped tea including the froth and enjoy.
I will admit that Lucerne Milk (Safeway, Tom Thumb, ect) does not foam as nicely as I would like, but it still makes enough foam for a “Poor Mans London Fog”.
There is enough vanilla in this tea that I did not need to add anymore to it to get that London Fog quality you get at a coffee shop. I will admit that I thoroughly enjoy how sweet the milk gets when it is heated and shaken! Mmmmmm
I did not smell the leaves before I bought this one, because I knew I would loose my nerve and turn up my nose in disgust and look for something that pleases my olfactory sense better, so I ordered 100g (knowing co-workers and family LOVES this tea) and went home to steep this one, but ended up waiting until this morning. (Window shopping without any intent to buy wears me out, it is a useless activity wit no real end result)
This morning as it was steeping I found myself pleasantly enveloped in citrus and vanilla. I went with a slightly cooler water, and an exact 4 minutes steep time. Mmmm, this was palpable, although I did find the finish tough to savour at first. To the point that the next time the husband calls to ask what I want from the store I will eagerly say: “Cream please”
This is a note worthy tea and with some practice and perfecting has the potential to become another weekend treat, Vanilla just does not seem like a day-in-day-out kinda thing…
The leaf is a beautiful mix of green and dark…steeped, it loves to unfurl freely in the pot. Do not trap this leaf in a ball or bag, allow it room to move. It is medium and small broken pieces once fully steeped.
The liquor is golden and the aroma distinctly the woodsy, earthy Darjeeling.
It has the flavour of dark truffles, and lingers on the back of the tongue.
Enjoy this brew without milk or other adornments, as it deserves your full attention.
