Recent Tasting Notes
Well… I think this is better than the first time I had it, but I’m still not a big fan. It’s quite cloudy, and tastes like a cinnamon, watery, somewhat chocolatey chai. Can’t really taste the coconut at all, though it’s probably just coming out as a bit of creaminess. So unfortunate; this blend sounds like it should be so tasty, but it’s really just a big flop.
Bumping the rating up a bit, because this is certainly not as terrible as the first time, but still not a tea I’d recommend to anyone.
Eh, this one is not quite what I was expecting. It brews up quite murky, and with an offputting aroma that I can’t quite place. It’s a little reminiscent of Super Chocolate or Dr. Chocolate (carob??) The flavour is surprisingly weak, given the aroma, and mostly tastes of murky cocoa and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is drying though not astringent – kind of like getting chunks of chalk in your mouth. I can’t taste the coconut at all here either.
I have enough left in my bag for another shot at this one, but I’m really disappointed :( This is definitely one of the least tasty teas from DavidsTea I have tasted.
It was alright. Very strong green tea taste. You would have to really enjoy green tea to like this tea. Also, I found I didn’t want to look at the color as it grossed me out when I was drinking it. BUT, it is said to have phenomenal health benefits…so I drink it anyway :)
Well, I’ll leave DAVIDsTEA to fix the image quality/description here… I’m not used to having to add teas myself!
Picked this one up while in store today to get October’s TOTM – I had seen mention of the straight tea promo, but hadn’t realized that 9 new straight teas had come out! So I picked up sample bags of five teas they had available (at least one wasn’t new though). A couple cups’ worth of tea for $1? Heck yes!
So the roommate and I shared this one tonight, as neither of us have really tried many (or any) straight white teas. Used the whole 2g bag of tea for 3 cups of water (less whatever boiled off). The end result is quite light, and in my opinion, a bit too bland (not underleafed though, I don’t think). I definitely get the corn silk association they mention, but there’s nothing special about this one at all. There’s a bit of a lingering “tea” taste at the end of the sip. Not sad that my sample packet is gone. I imagine this is fairly akin to most white peony teas; my expectations weren’t super high, I must admit! For those that like white peony, I’m sure this is a fine tea, but apparently I’m a touch picky :)
Just getting out of the dentist i stop at my local David’s tea to buy the glass Gongfu Teapot and some Tie Kwan Yin to try when they ask me if i want to try this one too ( i don’t care for them try to sell more thing if they don’t get pushy and they don’t) it’s was smelling good so i bought 25g to try also.
Perfect tea to try my Gongfu teapot ( and my first try at Gongfu for that matter ) I can’t say if my technique was good or not and how that affect the tea but i did find that one good a little earthy but just enough for me to like it I didn’t get the pine taste they talk about before the third steep when a little hint begin to appear.
I run out of water after 1 rinse and 3 steep and was to lazy to go get more with my mouth hurting i will get more water later and try more steep
Will give that one a Note after trying it also western style in my steeper
I’m gonna love that little teapot :) a yixing one will take is place probably someday lol
Update Western style : Just made a cup western style in my steepster following the instruction they gave on the bag water at 92 for 5 minute i can detect some bitterness but also some sweetness that was not in the Gongfu If i have to choose this one if better Gongfu less bitter but overall it’s good i still prefer Tie Guan Yin
OK so this is One of My favoret teas!!!! I love the buttery popcorn smell and even though im still unpacking the house i FINALY broke into the tea box and found this wonderful tea!!! Although im at work drinking it I think i may sneek in a cup to the movies this week end since popcorn is not aloud on my diet! JUst love this YUMMY tea!!!
My co-worker brought this tea into work and I tried it there. I personally didn’t care for it. Granted, part of the reason is because I’m not a big lemon fan to begin with, but I found the tea too citrusy and strong (although, the “strong” issue may be due to my fault in leaving the teabag in for too long).
Ok, so I never do multiple reviews for teas but this review is for the Birthday Cake white chocolate bar offered by David’s . I didn’t see a separate entry for it so it’s going with the tea. If anyone knows of a separate entry, let me know.
I bought 2 different chocolate cares- $10 for 2 bars. Expensive, I know, but it was after work and I was craving some chocolate. I ripped open the bar and was greeted by a beautiful white chocolate bar with colourful sprinkles embedded. It reminded me quite a bit of a Hershey’s cookies and cream chocolate bar. When I bit into it, there was the wonderful crunch from the sprinkles, and a vanilla and maple taste from the bar. Delicious and sweet., and great for a treat. Totally recommend, although as mentioned, pricey.
Flavors: Maple, Vanilla
Another tea to re-review.
Sunday afternoons just seem perfect for lattes. I brewed this one up using 4 perfect spoonfuls (10 tsp) in my steeper with 8oz of boiled water and somewhere between 1/2-1 tsp of sugar. Steeped for about 6 or so min, then mixed with hot, frothed milk. The result is a sweet, vanilla, cake-y treat.
I’m so glad I figured out how to make tea lattes perfectly at home; it’s $4.50 in store or about half the cost at home (which is expensive enough, lol). This is my favorite tea from DAVIDs to make lattes out of.
Flavors: Cake, Sweet, Vanilla
I finally tried this one this fall. I think it is a great tea! Pumpkin is normally something hard for me to pick out because I don’t think it has much flavour.
This tea however does have lots of flavour. I wouldn’t go as far as calling it a chai in my books. It needs some more spice for that but then it would mute the fresh and subtle pumpkin taste that bleeds through.
My first rating on steepster! I’ve been lurking for a while now but I want to join this awesome community so I thought I better start reviewing!
Okay so this is one of my first teas from DAVIDsTEA and WOW. Its really really good. I’m not sure what the temperature of the water was since I only have a cheap electric kettle but I let it boil and then opened it for like 30 seconds to cool it a bit. Anyways I didn’t taste any bitterness from the black tea, very smooth, a tad buttery and a lot of coconut. I’m not an alcohol drinker so I guess I don’t know what real rum tastes like but this reminds me of what “Butter Beer” from Harry Potter would taste like. I agree with another reviewer who said it would be perfect for a snowy cold day. I had the first cup plain, but I will have to try sugar/milk to make it creamier.
