Oh how I wanted to love this tea. I had been looking for something that was full of apples to work as a hot cider sort of drink. There was something very artificial about this one for me. Right from the time I opened the tin something seemed a little a miss – perhaps a little like strong apples with a finish of musty cardboard. My husband and daughter really liked it and didn’t get the unpleasant artificial after taste that I did. It did smell promising but just wasn’t quite for me – this was the first time I’d ever had a David’s tea that had this strange aftertaste.
It was exactly what I expected. Lovely Japanese restaurant style green tea. I loved the brown rice and popcorn and had been looking for something like this to add to my cupboard. It reminded me of when I worked in a Japanese restaurant in high school. You can never go wrong with this style of tea in the evening. My daughter loved it so much she actually at the steeped tea leaves, brown rice and popcorn – whatever floats your boat I guess.
This is the second time I’ve tried this one, the first being in store. That time I couldn’t figure out what it was that I didn’t like in the tea, and blamed it on the over-brewing that can happen to the more delicate teas when they’re samples.
This time, I have an ingredient list with me, and much more tea knowledge. Drat that infernal licorice, that’s what ruins it for me! I want a mint mint, not something masquerading as one! Sorry David, but I think I’ll be going elsewhere for my mint teas.
Holy mint, Batman! I thought I loved a strong mint, and then I tried this tea. I normally reserve my straight mint teas for when I’m ill, and I’m thinking this one is going to be blended with my Cold 911 to kickstart things when needed. It’s a wee bit too strong for me, but it is better than any bagged version I’ve tried, and is definitely mintalicious. I love how I can feel the mint effects all the way down after I’m done!
I’m pretty sure there has to be another entry for this tea somewhere but after five minutes I couldn’t find it, so I’ll be the first to rate it and note it here.
This is my first time drinking straight rooibos. The closest I’ve come before this was some horrid Tetley vanilla infused “red tea” bag over a year ago that was so bad I tossed the container after one cup.
Drinking this as a straight, I can definitely now realize where the rooibos flavour is in all the blended versions I’ve tried. This is deep and earthy and unique, and yet lovely at the same time. I can see why it blends so well with cinnamon now, because I just want to sprinkle some across my cup before I sip.
Since this is my first straight red rooibos, I can’t judge quality, but it definitely seems to me to be a good one, compared to the flavoured rooibos I’ve tried before. For drinking it straight, though, I think I prefer it in green form.
I was very surprised by this tea. It smells absolutely delicious before it is brewed, and it brews to a swampy green colour. After about 7 minutes of steeping, it tastes creamy, smooth, and nutty. I found the tea flavourful and satisfying. It certainly did curb hunger and the cravings I have had for carbohydrate rich meals. I highly recommend this tea to anyone looking for a rich tea to drink any time of day.
Mmmmmm. Not an everyday tea for me, but a tea perfect for chilly Monday afternoons when the weekend feels ever so far away. When brewed just right, with enough tea, this tea turns a lovely buttery rum color and smells delicious. I can taste butter and rum and coconut; and tend to purr the whole time I’m drinking it.
Another tea I got in-store to sample. This time the girl knew how to brew a green and didn’t burn the leaves, something I was extremely grateful for when I took my first sips. This one is definitely vegetal, but less so than others I have tried. The flavour was a delicate one, not overpowering like I expected it to be, which was a pleasant surprise.
Not my favourite straight green, but I did finish the cup of this one.
You know what? This is good tea. I’m having the primary steep with milk and sugar currently (actually this is my second chai of the day; I appear to be on a minor kick) and it’s definitely hitting the spot. Spiced and a nice round flavour.
I’m having the second steep clear (or at least as clear as it will be in the same cup as the original steep) and it I have to say, it’s definitely better with the milk and sugar. The spiced flavour just begs for some sugar and creaminess to make it complete.
Day 54 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge!
Bough a cup of this in-store. Managed to spill around a tenth of it on myself — I’d forgotten how hard it is to manouver tea and an umbrella at the same time.
Nonetheless, the tea was quite good straight — it had a lovely pungent chai flavour, with sweetness. I quite enjoyed it. However, I’m not sure if it’s because it doesn’t resteep well or because it’s just not as good this way, but I didn’t like it as much the second time around with milk and brown sugar. Therefore, I think this might be the first chai I really prefer straight!
I just hope I have better drinking conditions the next time I indulge in a cup of this….
So I have not been on for a while because I’ve had a terrible time..dealing with depression mostly since I found out my contract job in mental health work is getting completely restructured and I don’t have a place in it for the time being.
But number one thing that sucked…I didn’t get the job at DAVIDsTEA that I wanted so badly..and you supported me 100 percent on here and I felt shame and I don’t handle rejection well.
Well I’m back and though I am struggling looking for more work I’m not giving up on anything.
Thank you Pumpkin Chai…you filter my thoughts.
OKAY SO BEST NEWS EVER..
I applied to a DAVIDsTEA that’s opening near my house they called me back the NEXT day because apparently my cover letter was “awesome” having group interview today with other applicants.
I’m hopeful for the job..would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to have it(For the tea benefits and to have something more stable then contracted Peer Support Work!)However I am not jumping up and down because I did that once for a job at LUSH which I did not get it and it totally broke my confidence..I was so nervous last night but I feel much better still nervous but not panicking.I have to take each step as it comes..gracefully!( it took me 10 years to do that by the way)If I don’t get it
then I can try again later..or apply for less a TEA-LIKE job.But I’ll shed a few tea tears I can promise you that if I don’t get it..
ANY TIPS are much appreciated and wish me luck!
PUMPKIN CHAI you are fall in a cup..with a touch of Halloween and sweetness..my first tea I ever drank from DT.(I still don’t consider it a real Chai but this is sooooooooooooooooooooooo good it can lie to me about anything!)
SOOOOO excited…nervous..I’m going to kick ass :)
This is the tea that made me fall in love with DAVIDsTea.
At first smell I was in love ,totally utterly head over heels holding a stereo over my head standing under it’s window and serenading it .It smells like fall and Halloween candy and falling leaves and it tastes like heaven.No description could ever capture the immense complexity of this tea .
Chai has always been my favorite type of tea and this is definitively it’s masterpiece.
My bff introduced me to this tea, and boy am I ever glad she did. This is the perfect think-of-a-warm-summer-perfect-breeze-day tea. Sparkly and sweet in all the right ways, this tea brings a smile to my lips and literally puts a little song in my heart. And it helps me avoid some sweets sometimes… I’ll always have Goji Pop in my cupboard along with Read My Lips – they complement one another in an odd way, and life wouldn’t be complete if they were missing. I think I’ll only buy DAVIDsTea from now on…
I really love this tea. It’s quite unusual, and I’d say a bit of an acquired taste. As a coffee drinker, I like having this as a slightly less-than another cup of coffee option. While it is caffienated, it doesn’t generate the same buzz as another coffee would. I find I have to be careful with the amount of tea, and the time I steep – it’s easy to go to far with this tea – it can get uglybitter. But there’s a lovely richness to it that can warm up a cold work morning quite nicely.
I was FINALLY able to try this one! It’s been on my list for a while…Special Thanks to the lovely DaisyChubb!!!! Thanks!
This could just be the best flavored Yerba Mate or at the very least one of the best flavored Yerba mate I have ever tried! The chocolate flavors are great and that little bit of berry is pretty awesome, too!The Chicory is just-right!
Wonderful flavor in this!~
Thanks Daisy Chubb!!!!
Before reading all of the crazy reviews and tasting notes on this I already knew this would be an interesting cuppa as my thoughts upon first sniff was OUT HOUSE…yes…an OUT HOUSE type aroma! WTF!?
I then looked up this tea and noticed I was NOT the only one with that experience! LOL
The taste is very different from the aroma – THANK THE TEA GODS FOR THAT!
I can taste a sweet wood, burdock root, apples, orange, spice, and figs! I like the addition of the fig. It could have probably done with out the burdock root. The cinnamon is barely there and I am ok with this. This is a conflicting group of flavors and the aroma is awful to be blunt. Considering my height of dislike for the aroma the taste isn’t awful…thanks to the fig and orange. I can’ bring myself to give it a high rating as it isn’t that good but it’s not UNdrinkable either…as long as you plug your nose!
This is another tea that DaisyChubb sent my way! Thanks so much!
This smells neat…gentle fruit! I actually started my day with this one so it’s sort of a back-log…I had 2 cups…the first one with cooler water…warm not hot. The cooler of the two attempts I could taste the fruit more and not as much EG. It was juicy and pleasing. The 2nd Cup I did the RIGHT WAY with HOT water! The EG was strong and teh bergamot and various berry fruits were neat! This was a nice surprise twist on Earl Grey!
This tea has an amazing smell dry, and steeped. The taste steeped however is like burnt nuts, not the nice light scent that I had in the bag. I may have used water that was too hot, so as to burn the green tea, but the taste isn’t bitter, it’s sharp. It truly tastes like the walnut and other non tea ingredients were burnt prior to being steeped. I was unable to finish the cup I brewed. :(
Day 53 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge.
I used up the rest of what I had of this — it was probably a bit more than one cup’s worth, but nowhere near enough for two, so I dumped it in my two-cupper and filled it up for tea for one and a bit for the pot.
The taste reminds me of bumbleberry pie, which makes sense with the mixed berry theme. Hot, it was wonderful. I didn’t like it as much when it cooled—the dessert-i-ness seemed to fade with the temperature.
Resteep, again, wasn’t bad hot, but not as good once it cooled a bit.
Glad I had a bit of this left — I can see why it’s one of the more popular teas. Definitely worth a sip, in my opinion.
