Recent Tasting Notes
MMMMmmm this is some good tea. Dry, it kinda smells like a raspberry thumbprint cookie to me, but so much better.
Steeped, it still has that buttery coconut with a hint of raspberry jam scent, and it pretty much tastes the same. I can taste the black tea as well, and it all melts together beautifully.
Drinking this with a bit of milk and drop of honey, but I think it would be delicious any way it was prepared!
I bought 100 grams and it filled the tin, which is decent ( alot of people have mentioned Davids Tea and how depending on the tea, you don’t seem to get as much for your dollar because it’s bulkier – or you seem to get alot because the ingredients are really light. )
I bought this for my Swampwater-addicted daughter so that we could share a cup of tea in the afternoon or at bedtime. Unfortunately, she didn’t seem to like it all that much at first, so I’m experimenting with how to make it taste more delicious.
We’re trying it today with no milk, just a little bit of sugar.
Full disclosure: I do not like papaya. Like, not even a little bit. It’s not quite down there with cilantro, but it’s pretty low on my list of likes.
The smell is friendly enough. The papaya is there, but it’s really low. I’m getting a delicious candied fruit vibe from this tea.
Ooooh, wow, I put way too much sugar in here!
But it’s delicious.
The fruitiness is almost like a mouthful of grapes, strawberries, apples or some other juicy fruit. (Not specifically those flavours, just the feeling each of them evoke.)
I’m sure this would be tasty iced, but I’m glad I’m drinking it hot. The juiciness is kind of cooling with a very warm after-effect. Quite nice. I’m thinking my problem the first time was steeping it at the higher end of the recommended range. The low end leaves me with a lovely tea; not overpowering like the last one tended to be.
I think I’ll brew this up for my toddler to enjoy while I’m preparing her dinner. (My dinner is a lovely dinner out at a simple italian restaurant here called Dacquisto, to be preceeded by appliance shopping with the husband. First date night since dinner and White Christmas at Manitoba Theater Centre just before Christmas! Woo!)
I didn’t like this tea at all.
Because it’s a “bestseller”, I thought I’d take a risk with it, not knowing what to expect. Plus the gimmick of it turning pink when steeped was too much for me to resist.
I tried it, and I couldn’t even finish a full mug. I don’t even know what to do with my remaining stash. It had a strange aroma after it was steeped. After taking a few sips, I had to put it down. I don’t think any amount of milk or sugar would improve the taste either. It tasted to me like liquid muffin. What would be the sense in drinking a muffin?!?! It was just too bizarre for me. It also had a very strange after taste.
I don’t think I’ll be touching this tea again. Now I just have to see if any of my co-workers are brave enough to take the rest of my tea…
My favourite tea from DavidsTea hands down.
Although for an Oolong, it has very little resteep value, the vanilla really adds a new dimension to this traditional tea. The sweetness of the aroma creates a smoothness and creaminess that is unparalelled by other variations of Oolong.
If you love a simple tea that doesn’t require sweetener, cream, or any other types of ‘additions’ and if you like the sweetness of vanilla without having to go the dessert route, this tea is a great addition to your collection.
Many prefer the Milk Oolong, but I find that the Quangzhou Milk Oolong smells better than it tastes (and in my opinion, smells better pre-steeped than when wet), while the Vanilla Oolong has an aroma that lasts through the entire steep to sip process.
I think teas that can stand on their own are the best. The only thing that could improve this tea in my books, is if it had more resteep value.
Otherwise, it’s the closest thing to perfection. A great every day tea, or a nice “comfort tea”. What more could I ask for?
One of my friends and I routinely ask each other – how can a tea that smells this awful taste this good?
Don’t judge this tea by its smell – if you’re worried about trying it, maybe buy a small portion of it, or wait until it makes its way into the rounds of Tea of the Day again; it tastes very woodsy, and then when it’s left your mouth you can taste the orange and ginger lingering behind on your tongue. It’s delicious, though not one of my go-to teas – it’s one of those teas that when I want it, nothing else is a suitable substitute.
I adore this tea. It was one of the first ones that I went back for a tin of. I drink this instead of my coffee now in the morning. It’s excellent hot and not too bad when it’s cold. You can definitely taste the white chocolate and almonds in it. One of the girls at my local Davids told me that it’s also an appetite suppressant!
It’s sad sad sad sad sad sad… That I’ve just had a sample of this tea. I would drank more and more of this one!
The smell is complete, the blend is just so colorful and finally the taste… Is just what you need during a cold winter day!
Who gonna give me a little more of this one? haha.
Free Forever Nuts for everyone! Yes, I would like to give a cup of this marvelous blend to everyone in the world!
No, it’s not nutty. It’s recomforting instead! I’ve just drank a little heavenly cinnamon blend with some apple and others aroma which make me think of… “Croustade aux pommes”. I don’t know how to say it in english, but it smell like that! Definitely it’s worth the buy. The only thing is that the "tea"a is heavy so… You have less tea for your money.
I picked this one out of the three available in my local store because the pieces were whole, rather than … well, pieces. It’s a little bitter, so would probably go really well with some sugar and milk (or, as suggested, sweetened condensed milk). Having just added that, I like it more, but I’m going to experiment with the steeping time. It still seems a little too thick.
This tea does strange things to my head. The scent is really potent and blows me away while pouring my cup. From the scent I think I know what’s coming. It takes me back to my early highschool tea days, or to that best cup of Earl Grey I’ve ever had at a cafe by St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. But there is also a bit freshly-squeezed orange hitting my nose along with the bright bergamot.
Bringing the cup up to sip, my tastebuds are still expecting a classic Earl Grey. So it’s a bit of a shock to get what they do, but they like it. The crisp bergamot is delicious but there are also other juicy citrus notes and a light sweetness. None of the astringency of black tea. It all blends together seamlessly.
I wanted something with at least a little caffeine this morning, but it needed to be gentle. This made the perfect Sunday morning tea.
