Surprisingly tasty. So today I have a cold. I ran out of Gail’s cold remedy so I decided to buy Cold 911 after having heard quite a few good things. Man they were all right. This tea is delicious. It really soothes the throat when you are sick but it also tastes great. I think I would drink this even when I’m well.

So I just brewed myself a cup of this for the first time and my whole room smells like chocolate now. Its weird though cause it’s not the same as when someone is making chocolate or baking, its like that artificial chocolate scent you find in cosmetics and what-not. So I’m hoping the tea doesn’t taste like this.
I’ve tried chocolate teas from DavidsTea before (read my lips and love tea #7) and I wasn’t that crazy about them. I decided then I just wasn’t a fan of chocolate teas. However, this tea came with my winter collection package, and I’ve finally taken the jump to try it out.

For taste, the tea is really a let down. All I can taste is the chocolate, and its very artificial tasting. I actually prefer read my lips or love tea #7 because I could taste mint or strawberry in those ones, but in this tea all it is is the chocolate. The spiciness of the peppers comes out as a slight sensation in the throat or on the tongue, but no where in flavour.
I’ll most likely be giving this tea away.

I was expecting to trying this tea when i’ve went to DT at Saint-Bruno. By luck I won’t because if it just taste like chocolate it would be a big deception for me and my buds. Thanks for the useful review!

I think this tea was exclusive to the winter collection which you had to buy as a set, and not available to try out of the large tins in store. I guess that’s a good thing it was seasonal, since it wasn’t that great. But I’m glad I gave you the heads up.

This is the one two from DavidsTea that I must have on hand all the time. I don’t currently live near any DavidsTea locations, so now every visit I restock on The Skinny and try a few new teas.
I’ve heard a lot of people say that they dislike the puerh taste. I happen to love its earthiness. Citrus and ginger are two of my favourite flavourings, so all of that mixed together creates a fantastic tea for me.

Having some of this today as its a sad, tired Friday-day. Added extra sugar as while I don’t think the tea needs it, my inability to stay awake does. Yummy and peachey and soothing to my Friday-itis.

Been kept warm in my Timolino (seriously don’t know what my life would be like if I hadn’t picked you up at the Mont Royal Plateau location last August, you sexy blue thing!) all day until I started sipping this afternoon. Hmmmm…. comforting and sweet and tasty, warding off the briskness in the air outside.

I drank so much of this over summer as an iced tea. Hit the spot every time, and looks great in my double walled tea glasses.

I really like this tea. I got a sample when it was Tea of the Month, and loved it so much I had to order more. It’s sweet, without being overpowering. Comforting both hot and iced, this one has a permanent place on my shelf. Has been very good iced this week while it’s been so hot.

Another sipdown!

I haven’t had this forever apparently.

I still really enjoy this blend. The light earl grey and berries. Jasmine is present, but I would rather enjoy jasmine by itself. I am going to decrease the rating just a smidge.

This resteeps well at 5minutes.

And it is also fairly decent cold.

This is a super-smooth tea.
I am not getting much of the earl grey flavour, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing because I really like this tea. The orange peel instead of the bergamot gives this a smoother, subtler cirtus taste, and the jasmine really shines though.
The oolong base gives this tea the smooth creamy taste that I could drink all day!
2 steeps so far and I am gonna try another.

drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
818 tasting notes

Usually, I drink my tea straight, but I read some of these reviews, and decided to add a tad of sugar and milk.
These additions made the carrot cake flavour really shine, it tastes like a real carrot cake without the nuts…..maybe I should add some forever nuts….I will try that some day!
I would up my rating but I really try to drink my teas straight to limit the calories I am consuming (losing weight is never easy), so the rating will stay the same.

The carrots and creamy taste really comes through.
Creamy and has a yummy taste but there is something in there that I can’t put my finger on. It must be the artificial flavouring.
When I first tried this tea, I loved it but now it is starting to fade on me.
I will definitely finish my 30g though.

I’m almost done this one from last year.
Nice and sweet, refreshing, and good in tea smoothies with watermelon and strawberries.

I don’t know how I still have some of this left. I have been drinking a lot of iced tea the last couple of weeks since it has been so nice here.
I think this tea might have gotten better with age because it is better than I remember. I am not getting any bitterness at all, just watermelon and honeydew flavours. Very refreshing on a nice warm day!

I am going to up the rating a little bit. I just finished off my stash from last year. If it is cold-brewed, it doesn’t come out as bitter as iced in my opinion.
It does taste fruity and like watermelon.
I wasn’t going to stock back up if it came back, but I have decided now that I will.

Iced

This tea is good, but it kind of has a weird bitter-like taste for me. I think it might be the honeydew melon.
After cold brewing this tea, it tastes much sweeter and tastier.
Good for summer time but it doesn’t taste good hot.

Well color me surprised. I’m trying all of the Easter Tea Trail teas coldbrewed (except for Chocolate Macaroon) and I am so happy with this one! I’m not an Earl fan, but this is like a bright, fruity lemonade-like tea. Yummy.

Every once in a while, I start to crave an Earl. My wife had this one last night and it just smelled so good! Mmmm. So I’m enjoying a cuppa this morning in my new winter Winnie The Pooh mug. It’s nice and fruity and the bergamot doesn’t take over, which is always my complaint with Earls.

Love this one. I might need to make this my work tea today…

I’ve had my eye on this one for a while :)

-If you don’t like bergamot, you will hate this blend!

Balance : Great, really shown the Bergamot taste.
Special characteristic : The bergamot make the difference.
Worth the taste : 4.50$ for 50g, YES!

Full taste :
From first to last, the bergamot taste which really make this blend memorable and, the black tea. Simply nice! :)

This tea REALLY taste like it smell.

Overall : A surprising blend that can carry the epicness of the classic Earl Grey and which can define it’s own unique taste too!

Snow Bunny. What a pleasant name!

I was expecting a Banana Nut Bread Taste, and it was what it taste like!
The flavor are like 2/3 banana 1/3 nut, which I do like.
But… I was expecting some black tea taste through it.

Unfortunately the black tea doesn’t have a big place in mouth.
However, you can’t say that this tea taste horrible.
It taste really good :)

1 tsp for 250mL tea, water @ 82C (roughly) for 5 minutes.

Okay, now that I know this is primarily apples and stuff, with green tea as the third last ingredient, I know what to expect: a really tasty apple cider that’s not horrendously sweet. But it doesn’t taste of green tea, either. Provided you aren’t expecting anything remotely like green tea, this is a lovely hot apple cinnamon drink. And water temp — yeah. I treated this like a green tea and enjoyed the result more than what got made for me at a DavidsTea with too-hot water.

I liked Mom’s Apple Pie more.
