drank Wild Black Yunnan by DAVIDsTEA
706 tasting notes

Just a quick note to say that this is a tea that can take a licking and keep on ticking. (:D). We had a pot steeping when I was called into deal with a leaking shower emergency by the beau – the tea was totally forgotten and left to steep for 10 minutes or so before I had managed a redneck repair so he could have his shower. Gotta say, sick of living in apartments and even more sick of dealing with repairs myself because my landlord is annoying. We haven’t had an oven door handle on our stove for the entire two years we have lived here! Anyway, the tea is still good. Very thick and rich, almost brothy. Strong cocoa, it’s quite over-powering, honestly. Very decadent. No bitterness to speak of, which is amazing. Way to go Davids!

Got myself 50 grams of this last night to try (finally!) brewed a cup this morning to go with my peanut butter toast. honestly, the toast dominated the tea but I got some lovely dark notes, almost cocoa-ish. I might have found a suitable replacement for the eternally out of stock (and wildly inaccesible nonetheless) Harney Golden Snail. Will do an in depth review at another time, but for now am impressed at the deep flavour, but with no bitterness. Definitely feels different from a “standard” black tea, an enjoyable treat in the morning.

I keep trying to like this but it is too much. I tried cold brewing it and it is just too hibiscusy. I’m really glad I only got 25g of this.

I went from not being too keen on this tea to actually thinking that I will by more when this runs out.

Every time I try this one I up the rating. I guess it is a tea that really seems to grow on me.

This is one tea I need to try. It really appeal me.

This tea took me a while to get used to. The cream taste was stronger than I imagined it would be. I make it with 1 tsp for a large mug and add milk.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 5 min, 30 sec

I drink this tea a lot I find it very soothing. I bought it for the immune boosting potential but find I drink it just because.

I guess I’m strange but I actually really like this tea. Even the smell. I will be buying a tin before winter has passed.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

So I tried this tea again today. I think I must be doing something wrong i love pumpkin and I love chai but I just can’t get this tea to work. Today when I made it I made it plain no sweetener or milk which I would usually add to chai teas. It did taste better than previously but it was like it lacked flavour. Maybe I will try it again with hotter water and more tea. Really glad I only have the 25g from the fall collection.

drank Dreamsicle by DAVIDsTEA

Day 28 of my 101 days of tea challenge.

I picked some of this up back in spring because the ingredients sounded VERY inticing, and the scent was quite nice. However, I’ve never found myself overly liking the way it tastes made.

I have to say, this is probably the best brew I’ve made of it so far, and I still found the sweetness and orange flavour a little strong, and the creaminess of the aftertaste off-putting. As a hot tea, it really… just doesn’t work too well, I think. It’s bearable, but it’s not something I would choose over most of the other teas available too me.

I’m hearing that this tea tastes better cold if not iced. I might try making some ice cubes out of this later, and see if it is better that way.

My boyfriend and I have decided that if butterbeer from Harry Potter was offered at Davids Tea this is what it would taste like.
It is delicious, both hot, cold, and with almond milk.
I loved to drink this tea in the mornings but sadly I have exhausted my supplies. :(

Mélissa

I agree, so awesome with almond milk ;3

Erin

omg it is exactly like butterbeer! hahaha that’s what i’m gonna think of now whenever i drink it :D

Honey

I thought the same exact thing when I drank this one. Harry Potter rox!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Maybe I’m just the harshest pumpkin critic of all time but… it needs more pumpkin! I could taste it, but it wasn’t enough to get me onto the tea 100%. Overall, combined with the spices it had a definite pumpkin pie flavour.
Maybe it was the black tea, or maybe it was because I was drinking it from one of those crumby paper cups from Davids Tea, but I’m not sure if I can really fall in love with this one quite yet.

Sip down! I forgot how great this one is! I always use it to mix with other teas, but I decided that I should have the final tea by itself. I should have made it a bit stronger as the flavours seem to be fading from my stash, but otherwise it is delicious!

I may get this again, but I’m going to wait a bit before I do. There’s no hurry for this one to be restocked as I have so many to still drink.

This tea when I opened the bag smelled like Cinnabon. I couldn’t get over how sweet it smelled, but in a warm cinnamon way. I wanted to warm it up and eat it right away.
I steeped it and it turned bright pink, which I really didn’t expect at all! But it added some nice charm to it.
This tea mixes well with a bunch of different teas. I’ve only added it to Pumpkin Chai, but I have friends that have added it to a bunch of different ones and they have loved it.
This tea goes really on its own too. I’ll drink it when I want something sweet and want something different.
DavidsTea, why do you have to make so many awesome teas!?!

drank Elf Help by DAVIDsTEA

While I normally drink my green tea organic, super strong and bitter, and with no additives I’m not usually a fan of venturing off into the flavoured green teas… until now. I have tried this tea twice from the Davids Tea shop and I have to say the second time I had it was a million times better than the first time. Its a perfect balance between a fruity tea and a green tea so is perfect if you’re in the mood for somewhere inbetween the two.

On a side note: has anyone else noticed that tea is never as good in those paper to-go cups you get at cafes and tea places vs. brewed in a mug? The only downfall to grabbing a tea from Davids when I’m out.

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

It’s true that when you try a tea-to-go from DT it’s never as good as it’s supposed to be. That’s because they always use 98 degree water at DT when you take a tea-to-go. So, the leaves burn.

noordelijk

I honestly don’t know what temperature of water I use, but I’ve always been one to use water on a cooler side because I’m really sensitive to hot drinks and don’t want to wait as long for it to cool off haha.
But anyways, I hate the paper cups mostly because I can taste the paper/plastic. It’s not a nice home for tea. Period.

drank Fantasy Island by DAVIDsTEA
49 tasting notes

I bought a sample of this from Davids Tea and within a few days I had already finished all of it. I love raspberries, and the coconut is a nice touch without being too overbearing. It’s a lovely rich black tea that’s suitable for morning or for dessert. Unfortunately, since its a black tea I have to try to stay away from something like this after dinner because of the caffeine.

+ steeped the tea super strong and made a cup half hot almond milk and half tea. Amazing!

This tea is the prime example for me of how hoarding tea isn’t always the best thing to do.

I loved this tea when it was in its prime, but I hoarded it so long that now it’s definitely past its prime and it doesn’t taste good at all. I found that it went to an almost powdery or dusty taste to it. This again isn’t the tea itself doing this, it’s the fact that I held onto it for too long.

So, I shall keep my rating as is, ‘cause it was a great tea that I will miss. And from here on out, it is my job to drink as much tea up as possible before letting anything go bad. I’m working on it, and hopefully I won’t let any other teas go to waste again, as I had to throw out what I had left.

Kristal

So disappointing! :( This must be quite an old tea because I’ve been shopping at DAVID’s for nearly 3 years and I

Kristal

…don’t recall this one at all. It sounds awesome too.

TheKesser

Yeah I went looking after seeing your comment and I think it was about 4 years old… I had no idea it was around that long… makes me think I REALLY need to take some time and go through my cupboard and see what else is needing to be tossed.

Kristal

Organizing the tea cupboard is one of my favourite chores! I hope you won’t have to throw out too much.

I’ve had this tea for a lot longer than I thought. I’ve probably had it like two years now! It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since I first heard about and fell in love with Davidstea! When my friend introduced me to Davidstea, I really didn’t know what to expect! With flavours such as Movie night and Buttered Rum being my first couple of picks, I knew that it was going to be a fun journey. Even now coming to love the more ‘normal’ of Davidstea’s teas, has been fantastic!
Anyway, I’m a huge fan of Davids. I love the quality and the taste, I love the flavours and the customer service… it’s just a fun company.

As a side note, I’m not an employee of Davidstea, nor am I endorsed by them in anyway if that was ever a question. I just LOVE their teas! They’re so much fun and so delicious!

Anyway, I’m revisiting this one as i’ve had it a long time now and I’m starting to try to finish up some of the ones I’ve had a long time or ones that I haven’t had in a long time.
It’s just as amazing as I remember it being. I’m enjoying it so much! I need to make some iced tea out of this, for real! So yummy.

Dear Three Lemon Green,

Every since I found out that I’m allergic to grass, I’ve been quite nervous to have you again… you and your lemony goodness. I’ve been worried about how I would feel after I had you. But tonight I’m trying you again and I’m hoping that you treat me well. I’m really hoping ‘cause you taste amazing. The perfect lemony taste with the perfect green rooibos base.
Anyway, if you and I get along for the rest of the night, then I think I’m going to make a nice big pitcher of you iced.

Signed,
A huge fan
