Recent Tasting Notes
I bought a tin of this tea. Holy man. It almost makes me want to give away my Pink Flamingo and trade it in for more Kanpe. I am freaking obsessed with this tisane – although I’ll say it again, I would never ever ever drink it hot. Bleh.
But iced! mmm, it’s fruity, tart at the end of the sip, like a sour candy (I’ve sweetened with agave to cut a bit of the sourness and add the candy-like flavour), perfectly (lightly) spiced with cinnamon.
I think I need several hundred grams of this tea, strawberries, raspberries and oranges, a couple big bottles of cheap red wine – and I will have delicious tea sangria all summer long. But it’s only spring!
Oh well, I’ve started early.
Wow, I was really surprised by how much I LOVED this tea!! Loved it!
I remember trying Sleigh Ride from the Advent Calendar and despising it, but this one is amazing. Iced! I should say Iced!
I went into the Halifax Shopping Mall Davids to see if they were accept applications and to see what else I could apply for, since it’s a close enough bus ride and I wouldn’t mind a mall job for a little while. The desk job was not so good for my health. Anyways -
I went away with this tea to go, Iced! mmmm it was so freaking good. The tartness came only at the end of the sip, in a really delightful, sweet lemonade way. I did have agave, which helped with the sweetness, but all the fruits and cinnamon and mm! Yum!
I’m the master of comma abuse.
Anyways – yum!
Oh, and they’re not hiring but I’ll bring in a resume anyways, just in case!
So last night I was up late at a friend’s show, and I’m feeling a bit groggy and grumpy having to get up and go to work today. So I turned to something that makes me feel comforted….apple-y, pastryish goodness. I need to remind myself to use a bit more leaf though, because sometimes I find it a bit weak. Its a wonderful apple tea on the whole though.
No matter how short I steep this or how little tea I use, I always end up with this rancidly strong cup of purple. Don’t get me wrong, the colour’s nice but it ends there. I don’t know what it is but I always get it really strong, spicy and gross. I’m not sure if it’s the cinnamon or something else but bleck this is terrible.
EDIT: I think this may be my preference despite the reviews similar to mine, but because of that chance I’m removing the rating and just keeping the review.
Nice! With all these spicy combination and the perfect flavour of the lemongrass it’s like a sweet and sour lemon flavour, almost a hot spicy lemonade. Kind of hard to explain. It’s just this tart and sweet fruity lemon tea, a great addition to any tea collection. Just don;t steep it too long or the lemon takes over!
So, I’m pretty much a citrus freak and like teas with a strong citrus taste *and after smelling this it clearly had one) so I grabbed a sample and shortly after tasting it went back and bought a tin! It is a very nice creamy orange flavour and the rooibos is in the back (but not overpowering) making it just perfect. I sometimes add a little sugar because I find it just a tiny bit sour (almost non-existant) and if you’re in a funky mood, add some cream….makes it taste just like a creamsicle!
Holy baloney this stuff is the bees knees! Dark, deep, rich cup of heaven.
Dry: mmm chocolate pieces, orange pieces and pu-erh oh my! It smells like the taste of terry chocolate oranges. I want one now.
Liquor: Dark brown. Coffee dark almost. Small oil droplets from the chocolate I suspect. Smells like a chocolate orange. Steaming hot: I can taste a bit of the pu-erh, but it is nice. Orange is present. So it chocolate. Warm: It has a whole mouth feeling to it if that makes sense. It’s thick. and very chocolately orange. Delicious. I like it better warm then hot as more of the thickness and chocolate comes out. So so good.
Overall – permanent collection. Amazing tea for satisfying a craving, or whenever you want to drink the equivalent of unicorn tears. I suggest you buy it.
A nice twist on a great classic. There was not a whole lot of “cream” however there is certainly a smooth creaminess to it. Just like the original, it has a sort-of dark taste, so I still add a bit of sugar but hold off the milk because of the vanilla. Overall, a very nice cream based earl grey. Whether you pick this or plain ol’ earl grey you’ll be all set for tea time!
It’s a good ooling tea, however I found the peach to be very mild. That might just be because I love peach and was expecting a huge punch of peach. But just overall, a very nice tea, and quite relaxing. For that reason I am still giving it a good rating and saying go ahead and try it. If you like peach, you’ll enjoy it.
One word, WOW! I bout a sample of this and I will definately going back for a tin! At first, it’s this sweet, almost nutty taste. This transforms into an spiced apple, with the popcorn taste present in the back and a kind of toffee/caramel sweetness which is hard to describe any other way then just plain delicious! David’s has had another great tea once again! Highly reccommended.
Well…. At first, it’s just a sweet green tea, but then when you’re least expecting it the walnut smacks you in the face (or mouth?) and then comes the after taste (which is the best part!) it’s a nice sweet walnut, sweet taste with some sort of maple which is really quite delicious however the flavour is a little on the weak side, but still a decent tea. I just got a sample and I might go back and pick up a tin sometime this week. Orverall, not bad for a nice, sweet light tea. =)
I can’t seem to pinpoint why I didn’t like this one. It certainly lived up to its name – it tasted like creamy sugary vanilla sprinkle cake, even down to the slight burnt little crusty bits that get stuck in the pan. It wasn’t overly sweet, but every sip left me feeling like I had just snorted straight cake mix. Unpleasant.
This tea keeps drifting in and out of our stash – we get some, we give it away, we get some more, we give some more away. I thought we were all out, until we started cleaning the living room and found a stash of a dozen or so teas. And lo, there was Southern Belle! This is another of those blends that bowls me over with the scent but doesn’t quite deliver. Even so, it’s a very pleasant sweet peachy tea that’s not too over the top in any way. I think I’ll keep it around this time.
Finishing this…I threw out some less than savory in age/smell teas in the meantime…oh yeah and then found my hot water heater soaked the floor of my pantry. Of course after I get an illicit pet. And before I need to take a shower, but I can probably wash my hair in cold water and be okay for the time being. It looks to just be a pipe leaking so I can catch water in it since I’m hardly ever not here, and then they can come when illicit bird and I are off in Tennessee.
Thankfully it’s still hot enough. That cleanup was a hot mess. I ended up having to take out recycling and trash.
Of course now that this is the end of my sample from Kittenna, I’m starting to like it! I wonder if it’s because I most likely used a far lower water temperature…not that I’m very certain what I did before, but I actually do get apple pie and not just cinnamon apple. There’s just the faintest note that is reminiscent of pie crust, just a little buttery. I’m really liking the apple flavor especially right now.
I wonder also if this has to do with how my tastes have shifted for fall? Apple is perfect right now, when I had it in April not so much.
Okay I want more. Here I am so happy I removed this from my spreadsheet and I keep sipping and sipping and not wanting this to be the last cup I possibly ever have of this tea.

Yay Steepster’s back. I was trying to remember if this tasted like Hot Toboggan when I was greeted with “oops! Google chrome can’t open this page” or whatever it is.
Sad times. (Actually the real sad times is that I burned myself with steam on my right wrist while cooking dinner. And I have no idea how to not look nuts in public tomorrow since for right now I wrapped a washcloth around it and secured it with a hair tie.)
But yes, in the end, this does taste like HT BUT it also tastes like green tea, which is useful. That was the downfall of Hot Toboggan for me.
But in the end I am not sure cinnamon apple is something I really like as a tea flavor, at least for a green. But other than that, this is good.
I have to say that apple works since I plan to make Mariage Freres Tarte Tatin au Thé for Easter and it involves steeping vanilla tea in butter. I am so excited I want it now…so you can see why I picked to try this tea out. Thanks for sending me some, Krystaleyn!
This tea isn’t jam-packed full of flavor like others from David’s, but what it does have is really good. It got the grassy, nutty taste of the Sencha and the mango adds a punch of fruit. It is very refreshing and not overpowering like some fruit teas. Very relaxing and recommended.
What the hell is up with David’s Tea and hibiscus? Like rooibos, it seems to want to ruin any fruit teas that I’m mildly interested in.
It smells like it could be better, as it needs more strawberry and ginger than hibiscus, there is barely any strawberry flavor in this, and the ginger is there once you go through the hibiscus tart after taste.
Unlike rooibos, I am more indifferent to hibiscus, as it is not disguisting, but it seems to be overpowering potentially delicious blends, and it is becoming more commonplace in my recent David’s Tea blend purchases.
