Recent Tasting Notes
Tried this last night while watching TV. Had it with cream and slightly sweet on a 5 minute steep. Nice rich mocha coconut flavor without the coconut being too overpowering. Good drink on a cold evening. As I got to the second and third cup there was no issue with bitterness. I do think that the cream did help since I drink it strong. No problem with caffeine jitters either. This may not be my favorite but it is a go to hearty blend when you don’t want a fruity or vegital tea.
This is possibly the sexiest smelling tea I’ve ever smelled.
Can’t help but keep smelling the pouch with it’s impossibly rich notes of buttery rum and coconut.
This tea is very rich and may not be an everyday tea but on a really cold,unappealing day it is the perfect cure for drowning those winter blues without developing a drinking habit.
This is the first time I’ve had chicory tea. Hmm…must be an acquired taste. I do like the earthiness and it has a wonderful aroma of vanilla and almond, but it doesn’t mask the taste of the chicory bitterness as DaisyChubb describes. There is this weird after taste. I think this tea would taste good with some sort of liquor.
I love eating lychees. I love lychee martinis, but wasn’t too much of a fan of this tea. I think it was the overly floral, almost rosy notes which I wasn’t expecting especially when I read the ingredients are lychee scented black tea, apple pieces, and calendula petals. I’d suggest the Earl’s Garden over this.
I am new to Chai teas as my lactose intolerance prohibits me from drinking any dairy. When I bought the pumpkin chai, I asked the girls working at DavidsTea if they had tried it without milk- they said it was excellent. I purchased the tea and was excited to try it, it seemed like an ideal drink for a snowy winter day. After steeping my tea in the NOBLE tea tumbler, I tried the tea and was a little bit overwhelmed by the flavours. I added some brown sugar and a packet of sweetener and it was pretty good. I then poured half my tea into another mug and added lactose free milk (which i heated up a bit), this tasted much better! I am very diet conscious, so I’m not sure if I would drink this tea very often because of all the calories I have to add to it. I prefer my teas plain, sometimes with a bit of sweetener. Overall, it was a good tea and I understand all the good reviews about it. It is definitely best around thanksgiving or on a cold winter day!
I just purchased this online, as it has come “back from the dead”. My first try of this tea I brewed it to the exact parameters on the bag and thought it tasted awful because it was incredibly tart! Anyway, I decided that people must have voted for this tea for a reason, so I’m giving it another shot today. I used a lower temperature water than directed, hoping it wouldn’t be as tart as the first time I tried it. And it’s actually quite lovely.
It brews into a wonderful peach colour, though I expected the hibiscus and the strawberry to turn it a light pink. I added some agave to it to try and circumvent the tartness I had gotten before, and it tastes quite a bit like my mother’s strawberry rhubarb crumble in a cup, yet without the almost unbearable tartness of the rhubarb. I’m also getting some apple notes out of this tea, which I don’t enjoy so much, but overall it is an adequate blend. Not as good as some other DT blends, however. I also have a feeling that since its original release, these teas have been re-blended and don’t taste the same as they originally did. Can anyone corroborate this theory?
I do look forward to cold steeping this one! Update on that to come (eventually) :-)
Thanks Daisy Chubb
I am afraid tho
It smells like, dirt, fish, and spearmint. It looks like tar.
The amount of mint flavor-wise is MUCH appreciated…it sits well on the tongue. Any less I would have had to dump the cup. It’s this cuppa’s saving grace.
I like the mint, can’t taste the creme, the pu-erh smells awful, but it’s not as bad as I thought it would be based on several reviews. I’m a mint freak tho. I can finish the cup but wouldn’t order it.
Very glad I got to try it tho :)
Another tea I get to cross off my TEA Bucket List thanks to Daisy Chubb!!!!
This reminds me of DT’s Santa’s Helper and I really like that! I think that one is a little more mintier and candy-like but this one is darned dandy, too!
It’s chocolate and mint and sweet and satisfying…might have to make some minty DT purchases soon! :) Thanks again DaisyChubb!!!!
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…
