Tried this one in-store as a cup of tea. I was quite pleased with it. The dry leaves smell delicious – sweet, but not overly so. When it steeped up, the tea was nice and fruity, I could definitely taste the cherries AND the white tea base which was nice. It did not turn acidic or bitter either which was a definite plus. I drank this one with a little bit of honey because of a sore throat. This tea will definitely make a repeat performance on the cut of tea roster, but I’ll likely wait till summer to buy any amount of dry leaf.
The first time I tasted this tea I was not crazy over it but tried it again and am starting to really like it …its reminds me of some velvet morning but the burdock comes through ..its a good morning tea ..try it ..you will love it or hate its not a sit on the fence type of tea but give it a couple of tries
This is a tea I always keep around.. it’s one of those that you know you will enjoy no matter what the occasion is.
I’m a big fan of flavored teas, but obviously the true essence of tea is in it’s bare leaves, so «au naturel» is something I feel I must go to from time to time. I will not pretend I am an expert at this, cause I’m not. The world of tea is so complex and fascinating, I learn something new everyday! I am slowly educating myself and trying unflavored teas more and more.
What never ceases to amaze me is to find hints and notes that are naturally there. This tea is an excellent example of that. The sweet honey is easily identifiable, hard to believe that no sugar was added. It’s malty but not too much. It’s a bit astringent, but not too much even if steeped a little too long.
For my taste, the flavors peak when it starts cooling. I like it just slightly warm, not hot. After steeping it, I wait a good 5 minutes before I drink it. I then experience it in a whole other way, with more nuances and fuller body. The sweetness arrives at the end, so it completely takes away whatever astringency or bitterness that might be there.
Definitely one of my favorite black tea!
Hello old friend, I have missed you. We’ve been moving to a new place and most of our teas were packed up about 3-4 months ago, so I’m glad to have them in my hot little hands again. I’ve been craving Orange Blossom for days, but the tin is in a box we haven’t found yet, so this is a lovely substitute. It is a touch weak, but I blame the massive mason jar mug and my impatience in steep time. Still, it’s like falling into the most delicious almond cookie. This will always be a favorite of mine.
Oh my goodness, yes please! This was an absolute delight iced yesterday while we were wandering around to celebrate my sister in law’s birthday. It was creamy and nutty and full of delicious goodness. Because it was purchased in-store, it was a little weak. I hate their method of brewing it “twice as strong” and then pouring it over ice. It always ends up weak for me. Yummers, though. Might have to try some here at home, letting it cool instead of icing it.
So I used the last of my sample bag of this to make a thermos of goodness for work and try to decide if it’s worth restocking. Conclusion? While tasty enough, this tea didn’t stand out enough for me to make room in my cupboard. Sadness. I think I just want to like it due to the call back to “Celtic lore” in the description XD. This blend is tasty, but ultimately forgettable.
When I heard about a blend of White and Black tea I was really not sure about this mix…
But i’ve wanted so much to try this one.
I was much pleased by this one! DAMN.
It’s fully satisfying because I can catch all the White and Black tea flavor.
It’s a little creamy, but not too much creamy like Vanilla Oolong or Buttered rum.
Chocolate you say? Yes, there’s a little of it, but not the ugly steeped taste, the sweet
light flavor of cocoa here. :)
A light drinkable jasmine, this is the last of the jasmines for me in my collection, and on David’s Tea’s wall. Not very remarkable to me, especially after having had so many jasmines this weekend. I did notice a strong aftertaste well after I’d finished drinking with this one though. The jasmine definitely lingered.
I have to say I got attracted by the little candy canes we find it the tea mixture ! I love black tea, but this minty/candy cane flavour really adds a special ring to this tea. Best for cookie time/after dinner tea, every time you’re wondering with tea to drink, you just smell it and you’re done : you have to drink it ;) Be careful : highly addictive!
It is beyond freezing out today -21C or -13 F, but feels like -34 in both lol I definitely needed something warm to boot my mind out of the cold and on to a hot island and this totally did the trick. Today it’s more coconut’y’ than usual with a hint of raspberry. Delicious!
I’m so glad I bought this one, It’s definitely a new favourite. This makes me feel like I’m on a beach, right smack dab in the middle of winter. It’s a warm black tea laced with coconut and accented with raspberries (though it’s not at all tart, but more floral). I can see this being really good in the summer chilled. Fabulous tea to try if you’ve never had a davids before.
OMG ! I though a few times I had found THE tea, but this time it’s true : Jessie’s Tea is just perfect ! Smells delicious, just as it tastes. The lavender taste it leaves in the mouth is just so calming and comforting. I can never get enough! I really don’t enjoy coconut in every day life, and I really wasn’t excited when I tried this tea, but the taste totally convinced me. Now I buy every tea containing coconut !
Wasn’t sure at all when I smelled it at first, I’m more a fruit/chocolate/lots of taste kind of girl, but this tea really surprised me ! It feels so good to drink it plane, no milk/sugar of any sort ! that spinach taste and milky texture, just perfect ! I use it when ever I don’t feel like drinking a sweet tea !
Day 38 of my 101 days of David’s Tea challenge.
Mmm. This was pretty good. 1tbsp in my two-cupper. The mix of fruity sweetness and spice does remind me of a mulled drink, so I can imagine it as a substitute for mulled wine. Minus the acohol-taste, of course. It brewed to a purplish colour, which was beautiful (and again, reminiscent of red wine).
I tried resteeping it, which gave a hint of the spice again, but was nowhere near as nice or as potent. Though, that seems somewhat normal of tisanes.
I certainly wish they kept this on the David’s shelves! I’d certainly buy it.
Genmaicha is a tea I love to try and describe, and yet always fail at, especially when one is really good. Sadly this one from David’s is simply average, with little to make it stand out. If anything I found it slightly weak. I tried it at 1.5 minutes and it was nearly tasteless so I doubled the steep time and was still disappointed. I think I was spoiled by another and now can’t fall in love with any that are sub-par. :(
The Countess took me by surprise. I bought it on a whim as I was trying to break out of my tea-drinking preferences, and I’m glad I did. It is so mild and delicate, and yet a lovely cup to sit and sip when I’m doing my morning emails or flipping through a book at night. The orange notes are definitely there, blending seamlessly with the green tea to make a lovely cup that I reached for more often than I expected. I’m already out and will definitely be stocking up again.
An interesting chai. I love cinnamon and was looking forward to one that had that as the dominant note. My chais fall into a like, love, or loathe pile, and this one is firmly in the like, at least until I try it with milk. For my first sips I tried it black, and it was nice. Nothing memorable, but definitely not a chai that was dominated by the notes I tend to dislike, instead riding the cinnamon to a nice high. I added the sugar, and the notes intensified, but not unpleasantly. I’m curious now how the milk will affect it next brew.
It isn’t my favourite chai, but it also isn’t one that I’ll turn down. Fairly standard, which isn’t a bad thing.
I’m at my mom’s for the long weekend, and therefore at the mercy of her tea collection and old kettle. After tossing out all of her five year old teabags I was happy to see she still had a couple bags of tea from David’s that I had gifted her at Christmas, including this one. I do get a nut flavour but one that isn’t overpowering. It’s an odd tea, and one that I can see why people enjoy, but I’m not sure that it is one that I want to add to my own collection.
A pleasant surprise in this one. I’m not a fan of nuts, on their own or in baked goods, so I’ve avoided nut teas until now. What a mistake that’s been!
This one has a nice woodsy outdoors like scent that made me want to go for a walk when I smelt it dry. Brewed the tea is more mellow. There is a definite nut smell to it, although I’m not sure I’d label it specifically walnut.
Tastewise there is a strong general nut flavour, but it is tempered nicely with the green and the hint of fruit to make it a lovely brew. I can see myself reaching for this on an afternoon I’m curling up with a magazine or if I’m having a relaxing day at work.
This one is really rich of flavor. Mild-spicy mild-earthy with a fruity after-taste.
First of all, I can feel the fresh breath from all the Indian leaves.
The flavors became more clear as you drink it, at first impression it seems like a nice black tea. As you sip and the temperature drop, you feel the lovable muscat flavor.
This have a fresh earthy taste perfectly balanced with the spice.
The aftertaste is fruity, it’s really subtile.
I NEED MORE OF IT.
This is probably my favourite of the Jasmines from Davids that I’ve tried so far. It is more mild and doesn’t make me feel like I’m drinking flower extract. It was lovely to watch bloom and I admire how beautiful the dry leaves are. Sadly, it was also the tea that secured that jasmine teas are not for me. I’ll keep this one for guests who do like it, but I probably won’t be brewing it for myself again.
