I almost wish my friend hadn’t introduced me to this tea because:
a) I’m addicted
b) IT’S ONLY A CHRISTMAS TEA!!!!!!!!!!!
Totally drank my 50g bag of it in a week (or maybe less, I can’t remember…) and when I went back to the store to buy a tin to stock up for the year they were all sold out, with no chance of new stock coming in because the tea was THAT good that all the stores had high demand. I emailed customer service, tweeted them, called the stores, etc, nothing. Believe me this Christmas I may or may not be the person rumours will be going around about that I bought the entire container from the store….!
Davids needs to find out how to rebrand this as a year-round tea. I neeeeeeeed more!
Oh Happy Day!!! DAVIDsTEA listens when you cry! They have rebranded it as a not-just-for-Christmas tea so now I can have my fix every day. Hooray for no more painful withdrawals and bipolarness because my cravings were left to their own devices until next Christmas. Just kidding. I picked up a fresh tin of it yesterday. Ohh, the chocolate shavings are huge. The smell is intoxicating. I think I’m gonna go make a latte…
This tea is my go-to pick-me-up morning tea…I practically swear by it! It’s gotten me through several early mornings when it’s beyond appropriate to be out and about going to work. The invigorating peppermint combined with the spiciness of the peppercorns, together with the sweetness of the chocolate and the candy lips are, at least to me, one of the best things to start the day with. Keeps me going for hours!
Any tea that has blueberries in it I will HAVE to try. It smells delicious. The subtleness of the white tea went perfectly with the light flavours of peony and pomegranate complemented by the blueberry. Plus this is such a pretty tea to look at. My stash of this tea is running low…I should probably restock!
Tea to go today, and good thing. It smells good, amazing even, but tastes too rooibos-y for my liking. It’s not bad. I even had it unsweetened, with only some milk, and it was sweet enough (barely) for me. If I had to cut out all the caffeine in tea, I might go for this one, but I’d probably reach for Alpine Punch or Amaretto first.
No matter how I steep this tea it always comes off too light tasting for my liking.
It’s nice and warming with pleasant notes of apple and cinnamon, but it’s far too subtle and has no drama which is promised with the color and smell.
I would rather drink Goji Pop or Green and Fruity .
I’m still giving this tea as many tries as possible hoping that maybe one day we can go from sly glances across the room to full-on dating.
Today I woke up and couldn’t even manage the will to stretch one toe out from under the blankets into the freezing world.But I was awake and for the first time since that disappointing week I NEEDED a DAVIDsTEA to bring me into the real world.
I pondered over all my black teas since I need caffeine but the chilliness made me want only one tea, Alpine Punch.
I love this tea and it was made for mornings or anytime that is like this cold and miserable outside and just trying to warm up after coming in from the cold (even metaphorically speaking)or trying to warm up before a day of obligations ..It is a Rooibos but it doesn’t taste like it and it smells and tastes so inviting and warm..it makes me think of people lost in the alps looking for sanctuary and finally finding it drinking warm beverages made by generous strangers who place you under thick blankets in front of a blazing fire.This tea is most like a blanket and the most comfortable and favorite sweater you can own …
SECOND tasting note…still LOVE this and I’ve pinned down the taste…where have I had this flavor before in my life and loved it ??….Dundee Three Fruit Marmalade! It has the slight grapefruit tang and seville orange brightness that I adore. On the other hand my daughter hates this flavor because it is so dramatic which I suspect is why this tea gets mixed reviews. You can’t be too on the fence about this less than subtle tea. My taste buds say give me a nice buttery hot bun and a cuppa this tea nice and strong for breakfast with a chunk of mild cheese and my day has begun. Don’t need caffeine till later (maybe some coffee pu’erh latte).
I hab a cold…snif.fle..sneeze…and just got my DAVIDsTEA shipment from Canada today…so against my better judgement (just knew this was not going to cut it) I did a 5 minute steep of this with some sweetening, no milk (yucky). Howdy Doody Hollywood! Almost had a miracle cure! Fantastic margarita madness citrus mandarin like those orange slice candies…you know the ones…gum drops. Made me feel better, not bitter.
this was unexpectedly delicious!!!
I’m rather skeptical about Chai in general… having had so many that did nothing for me but the ingredient list seemed pretty benign and so I gave it a shot.
With some agave and heaps of milk, this was just the kind of chai I enjoy. It reminds me of the cuppas I’ve had in Indian restaurants to close the meal. The spices were perfectly balanced, with none of them poking out or lacking.
I did however, see a note in someone else’s review about it seeming a bit thin, and I think I know what they mean.
Initially, I had hoped to get a second steeping out of this, but as I moseyed on to work, taking random sips here and there… I kept thinking “just another minute steeping and it will be poifect!” (yes I’ve taken on an accent, in my head)
but oddly, that minute never seemed to end!
Which is super strange because I typically enjoy my teas on the weaker side…
I suppose it was my conditioning learned in Indian food houses that’s taught me to relish a strong cup in my chai???
Nonetheless, I love this one anyhow. Even moreso because it tasted just like “chai” without the hassle of making it into a bonafide latte! I mean, I’m sure it would be incredible as one, but I couldn’t seem to tell the difference so… shrugs
If it wasn’t for my tea buying ban (which I broke today. Bad IndigoBloom, bad!) I could seriously see myself buying some up for the cupboard!!
Disclaimer: I do have a bit of head cold going on. It’s no doubt affecting my senses!
Today was the first time I have tried this tea. I ordered it online and finally got it in the mail today (along with a handful of others). I am not a fan of Green Tea and if I do drink it, I usually like to add a touch of lemon, but I LOVED the chocolate flavor in this cup. I didn’t get a hint of Green Tea. It tasted like a Cadbury Milk Chocolate bar =) I think I can now say I like Green Tea…as long as it tasted like a chocolate bar, lol.
The scent of this is not to be believed. It’s complex and has a sugary sweetness about it. I was apprehensive about the coconut element, since I have a complicated relationship with coconut. Not being a huge fan of it’s flavoring, I do like subtle hints of it in things, but only when it’s really coconut, and not an artificial taste.
The coconut in this complemented the tea perfectly. It added a warm element to it, which balanced out the sweeter aspects. Surprisingly potent for its ingredients, it is a real treat. I had considered getting this the last time I was at David’s, but had reconsidered after smelling it. But I had it with my sister this evening, and I know it’s only a matter of time before I’ll be running back to David’s to buy it for myself!
For some reason the vanilla notes remind me of The Royal Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons.
