I got a sample of this when I ordered Swampwater. It’s a very light coloured tea, which makes me wonder how it will taste. I am glad I got it as a sample. I am not a fan of it. In my opinion it does not have much flavour to it.

drank Northern Lights by DAVIDsTEA
558 tasting notes

I used 2 and 1/2 scoops of dry leaf for my 473 ml thermos.

This tisane is satisfying as a mint tisane. I was initially drawn by the prospect of having fruit flavours mixed with the mint. I was also intrigued by the addition of the juniper berries. The mint flavour isn’t too pronounced and allows the apple and juniper berry flavours to come through. Sweet on the finish with a satisfying refreshing mint feel. The flavour reminds me of the taste of eating fruit after brushing my teeth.

For my second infusion, I used about 1/3 less water than from the first one and allowed it to infuse for 10 minutes. The mint flavour was less prevalent and the apple and juniper were allowed to come through a little bit more.

This is not a tisane to leave in while drinking. The apple gives a tart flavour which mixes very poorly with the mint.

Cold-brewed this tisane has a nice mint flavour which does not compliment the sour-tartness of the apple.

drank Fantasy Island by DAVIDsTEA
5 tasting notes

Starts off with a strong “black tea” flavour and ends with a smooth slight coconut finish. I want to add sugar to it, but will not in case the end note flavour disappears. In my opinion it smells better than it tastes. I gave the rest of the bag away to a friend who loves it.

I only drink this one when I am having trouble falling asleep. 8 times out of 10 it works. I usually begin to feel drowsy within ½ an hour of drinking it and if I am still up an hour after the tea is gone, I cannot focus and feel pretty dopey. It has a great smooth flavour. I really enjoy the minty after taste. However, if I drink this tea more than two nights in a row I wake up with a headache the following morning.

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

It smells fruity and reminds me of sweet and sour candy. Good name too, looks just like swamp water. It’s good. Has a slight taste of sweet-tart candy, easy to drink. Just as the label suggests I am sure kids would have no problem drinking this tea.

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
5 tasting notes

It smells like chocolate and makes my mouth water. Has a dark/bitter chocolate taste to it. There is a small amount of spice to it. Very smooth but I don’t need a big mug of it, it’s too much of a good thing. Tastes just like it smells.

Pretty happy with this tasty tea. Was great for serving as a good holiday-even non tea lovers enjoyed it’s festive tasty.

Sipdown from earlier this week.
I still prefer Teavivre’s jasmines but this would do if I didn’t have any. It is not perfumey and is fairly smooth.

I needed a jasmine fix, and I really wanted to see how this compares to the Teavivre jasmine silver needle. I only drank this tonight though, no comparison.

Not much different than the first note I wrote on this tea, smooth, slightly sweet, slightly grassy, not overpowering. Man…..I love white tea!

Next time, I will be comparing this to Teavivre’s version.

This is so yummy and flowery. The white base makes this tea sensational with the high quality white.
The second steep is just as good as the first or maybe even better.
Too bad this is so expensive, or I would definitely buy a tin.

I had this today with steamed milk, and the milk really smooths out the flavours.
Yummy good way to start the day!

I have a sample of this one I’m going to try — definitely going to use my Capresso Froth Pro to steam the milk first. I think it will be good. :)

I thought this was so-so last year, but then I tried it this year and BAM! I like it, chocolate with a kick, and I love chocolate!
I am not usually a fan of spicy foods or anything, so the mild spiciness of this tea is good for me!
Definitely something that I would drink again, I hope it comes back next year too!

I liked this tea. I am not particularly a fan of green tea, but this one was good. It tasted like an orange creamiscle.
I wish that I would have known about icing or cold-brewing tea when I owned this tea because I think it would have been wonderful cold.

I really like this combo of currants, orange, and vanilla. They just complement each other so well.

This is good for an after supper dessert. However, I am getting that fake “bubblegum” note that others have mentioned. I am decreasing the rating a little, but I still really enjoy this.

I tried this cold brewed today. It was so good.
Sweet, slightly creamy, smooth vanilla taste.
This will be a nice treat for spring and summer.
I will also have to try it as a popsicle!

Yummy and creamy!
This would taste like an orange creamsicle if it was cold brewed…..I will have to try that next!
Hot, this is sweet and satisfying, leaving a refreshing feeling in your mouth. Not too sweet though, because the creaminess makes it just right.
The rooibos base is also very complementing in this tea.
This is similar to last spring’s dreamsicle.

drank Pink Flamingo by DAVIDsTEA
2 tasting notes

This is my absolute favourite tea ever. Traditionally, I have kept to blacks and greens but this is the tea that reintroduced me to the fact that herbals can be just as delicious. Pink Flamingo has an extremely bold citrus taste that’s not for everyone, but it is balanced quite well with the hibiscus, beetroot and eucalyptus. It’s like candy to me! So sad that it is not carried anymore.

This isn’t a bad tea, it is just not my cuppa. It reminds me too much of super chocolate, which I am also not a fan of. I guess I can’t like every single tea from DAVIDsTEA :(
I just found that it was too much spice and not enough chocolate.

drank Lime Gelato by DAVIDsTEA
1 tasting notes

refreshing and unique, this is one of my favourite david’s teas—— mostly because i love lime. it has a summery feel to it and tastes great iced; but i also love it hot as a nice, soothing green. add a hint of agave to take the tart edge off, if desired.

Preparation
6 min, 15 sec

drank Sencha Ashikubo by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

A very delicate green, with floral notes and hints of hay. While the grassiness has been reduced, its still clearly present. Very easy to oversteep, leading to some biterness – be careful. On the whole, while I do like it, I’m not as enamored as some. It’s a strong Japanese green, but not miraculous.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 45 sec

Bought 10g. of this to try it.

the dry leaves smell like a lemon lollipop! mmm… this is promising.

steeped that smell is tenfold! i’m surrounded by it! liqueur is the color of lemon lollipops!

time to taste: very lemony without being sour, not sweet thought it’s like a sugarless lollipop, i’m going to sweeten this with some agave to see what happens, not the greatest result the tea ends up tasting fake… not great learn from my mistakes drink this clean.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

I really enjoy this one! It’s a nice fun tea for Christmas with the candy canes in it. The minty taste is strong when it first hits your mouth, but doesn’t linger too much, so is quite enjoyable. I often find when eating actual candy canes that the peppermint taste just gets stuck in your mouth and throat, and after a while it isn’t enjoyable – not the case with Santa’s Secret. A fun addition for Christmas.
