ehhhh, not as good as Teaopia. (minus serious points!)
There’s something missing, that certain malty depth that makes tea so satisfying for me. It’s smoky, but still weak. I almost wonder how this one would taste with milk(minus points). The teaopia one was just fine on its own but I had to add some agave here(minus points!!)…
Not much else to say about this one, not when I’ve had so much better. If it wasn’t for that I think this would get maybe five extra points from me.
EDIT: ok so I may have been quick to judge… I tried this with milk and it’s a bit better. Bumping it a few notches. The Teaopia version would be terrible with milk so I assumed the same for this one!
Hmmmm, I think I like it! alot!!!
this one reminds me of the coconut oolong I bought over Christmas, but more “green” (obviously) than oolong. There is a definite essence of walnut, with that same walnut taste in the back of the throat. Then there’s the coconut, which lends the sweetness to this brew. No sugar needed here! :-)
There is something else there, but I’m not sure if it’s the pineapple- most likely. It doesn’t taste unlike pineapple, but not especially so either.
If it wasn’t for the coconut oolong, this would get a 95 but because that other tea is SO similar, and I love that one, well I give this one a slightly lower score.
EDIT: The walnut, while good, has gotten a bit tiresome now that I am at the bottom of the cup. Down another few notches…
Second EDIT: The second cup is realllllllly smooth, as usual with a green or oolong, but it still takes me by surprise every time! It’s significantly more mellow now, but some of the walnut is lost. Hiking the rating back up! Like a rollercoaster this one…
I received this tea as sample with my David’s Tea order. I tried it hot and that may have been a mistake. I really don’t detect much of a coconut flavor which is odd because the tea to coconut ratio looks to be nearly even in the dry tea. Also, the lime tastes a bit bitter to me. The black tea is nice and almost understated, but then I come back to a bitter lime rind aftertaste.
I’m a HUGE David’s Tea fan, but this one s not one of my favorites. Sorry David…
I was really looking forward to trying this tea as I love pears and apples, but I was really disappointed with it. The pear and apple scent is strong but I found the tea had a somewhat metallic taste, which made it unpleasant to drink and detracted from the light, fruity flavour.
Did not drink this today, I steeped 4 heaping (perfect scoops) in a 2cup measure of hot water, let cool and used it to make pancakes this morning. WOW! This really added to the Sunday Brunch affair! I topped the pancakes with a reduction of strawberries and honey and got RAVE reveiws!
This tea really BROUGHT-IT!
Glanford KK Taste Note
First off, Thank-you DAVIDsTEA for such a generous donation to our Site, we are truly thankful!!
The children enjoyed watching the bamboo leaves dance in the botum as this tea steeped and they also noted a marked difference between how loose leaf tea smells as opposed to bagged tea. The site was split on opinion of how the leaves smelled, and were even more unsure of the tea after it was steeped.
I left the kids to decide for themselves if their tea needed to be sweetened, only a small handful requested either agave or sugar, but most were certian the tea did not need any sweetening. Most could taste the strawberries, and few could taste the peppercorns, everyone noted the bamboo and were shocked to learn there was bamboo in this tea.
The site average for rating the tea is noted.
Again, Thank-you DAVIDsTEA for such a generous donation to our program
I had this one on a day I was in DAVIDs and just looking (like that is ever possible) I think this one may have been under steeped (if that is possible). You can smell the strawberries, but their taste is far more understated than the title suggests.
I might get this one over ice to go today and give it at least one more try before I completely give up on it.
Oh so still delicious…
This tea is certianly my weekend pick me up tea! So for sure my weekend day start tea is this. Yumm! and this weekend I tried soaking the tea first in cool water; I understand this is probably not best for a flavoured mate, but it worked and I must say it did bring out the flavour slightly. I did notice that soaking the tea first made the chocolate far more subtle and gave this tea more of an amaretto taste as it helped bring the almonds to the fore front.
I can’t wait for next Saturday, already!
Ummm, maybe not the best tea to have at 9pm, but when I purchased it today, I could not wait to get it home, and there was no paitence to wait for Sunday breakfast… Nope, not at all!
When I first smelled the leaves I was struck at how much this smelled like that horrid “Raspberry Mocha” from Starbucks. This left me a little leary to try it, but I figured there really was nothing to loose since there is only one tea from DAVIDs that I truly did not like (Dolce & Banana) This tea is fun to watch as it steeps and I am a little sad that I left my glass bodum at work, since the raspberries plump right up!
I could only smell the raspberries and chocolate, but taste the mild chicory and almond taste… we’ll see what tomorrow brings.
This was my “tea to go” today, myself and two other co-workers piled into my car for a trip to DAVIDs for a between shift purusal… uh-oh, 3 women in a tea shop is like a bunch of kids in a candy store screaming for the attentions of the one person behind the counter. But I must say she was calm cool and collected!
When I first sniffed these maple infused leaves I was hit in the face with so much syrup I worried that it would come off tasting like a D grade maple syrup, but I decided to take the plunge and who knew this would be so delightful?! Drinking it hot reminds me of winters huddled around troughs filled with snow eagerly holding that precious popcicle stick, breathing in the scent of fresh snow, fresh tapped trees adn boiling maple syrup and waiting, WAITING for that sticky boiled goodness to be poured over the snow so you can wrap your stick in it and stand cheeks rosey and toes frozen as you savour that maple goodness that makes Canada Great!
This is a great tea and my first Rooibos that will leave me looking for more on pancake and french toast Sundays!
I accidentally oversteeped this! Egad!!
Not a good thing to do with this tea, that really does ruin the flavour when it sits for too long.
I didn’t get as much “whisky” flavour this time around. It was good, but I’ve had better steeps of this one. My bad *sighs
Oh, but I did do a second steep, and when it was still hot… I had a few sips of overwhelming peach!!! I’ve never seen that particular aspect present itself so strongly in this tea before. Who knew??
By the time it had cooled, the peach was well and gone of course. I wonder if I do more steeps next time, will I get an entire cup of peach? Hmmm. Usually, I don’t make it past two, maybe three… Me thinks I need to push atleast four!
After my last tea-scapade I needed something surefire to pick me up. and no surprise, this did the job! Two steeps and I was in heaven. See my previous notes for the reason why!
Only now I’m a bit traumatized… it’s been so long since I had a new yummy black tea, I’m feeling the burn man! (yes, I am an addict, and I don’t need help!)
I’m considering drastic measures here— Renting a Telus bike on my lunch hour tomorrow just to score some goods. ha! I’ll find that evasive wonder tea somewhere even if I get jitters trying!
now here we have a novelty tea! but I love it.
The first infusion was heavy on the whisky, not letting much else come through. It was strong, and generally what I had hoped for, except that the peach was far too mild. The second infusion was even better! I could really taste the peach here and it became super smooth, almost creamy. The third infusion was more or less the same but weaker… enough so that I doubt it could have done a fourth.
Next time, I’ll try shorter infusions and see if I can get more out of it.
Either way, this one is naturally sweet, complex, drastically different between infusions, and overwhelmingly tasty!! nothing but good things to say about this one.
Oh ya, and eating the nuts/fruit afterwards is fun to! :P
