drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
734 tasting notes

Not happy with how this turned out today, cold steeped in my timolino. It was really weak and had a funny taste or smell. Not sure if that was the tea or my timeline though. I only got a small amount of it to try, but there should be enough for a few more steeps.

drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
734 tasting notes

It smells so good but it didn’t taste as good as it smelled. It was neither sweet nor strawberry tasting. I couldn’t get any berry flavour. I had it iced as a tea to go, so I might have been the prep. I prefer Teaopia’s white strawberry offering better.

Got this in a swap with Emilie, thanks again!

This smells fantastic, mmm chocolate covered strawberries. The liquor it’s a really pretty deep orange-red.
Really lovely flavor, dark and delicious. Definitely a cocoa taste and not just a “we dumped chocolate syrup in it” taste, which is great. The strawberry mingles really well and I pick it up as a bit of an aftertaste. Yummy!

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
23 tasting notes

I got this tea in one of the two sampler packs so I decided I would try it Tonight
I haven’t tried a lot of chai teas so I was a little hesitant
Iv been looking around and it said this tea was good with milk so I added some heated milk to this (I actually spilt the milk all over the microwave :/ )
Back to the tea now
It was good. It had quite a bit of ginger in it so I didn’t like it very much
In all a nice tea but I probably would not buy it

iv had this tea before but never got around to writing about it
i am a very big fan of oolongs so this tea appealed to me
i steeped this tea 4 times and i thought that the third steep was the best
1st steep: a little bitter, but still good, barely tasting the milkiness
2nd steep: barely bitter, starting to taste the milkiness
3rd steep: AMAZING. not bitter, super smooth, full on milk flavour, best steep so far
4th steep: kind of losing the milkiness, starting to run out of flavour, eh
in all a GREAT tea i would definitely purchase (even though i have 50 grams:)

oh and also everyone!
i have gotten two boxes of samplers so i will be reviewing those over the next couple weeks and hopefully i will be receiving tea from other steepster users so i will be reviewing those as soon as i get it

drank Mango Diablo by DAVIDsTEA
154 tasting notes

I had this tea iced at the store in Kitsilano, as recommended by staff there. The fact that it’s iced keeps it well balanced and from getting too spicy. It’s a nice mango green tea that’s clean and finishes with a subtle spicy kick.

Preparation
Iced

drank Licorice Twist by DAVIDsTEA
154 tasting notes

This tea is so strongly flavored that it’s almost undrinkable. I like licorice, but this is far far too sweet. I gave the rest of it to my friend, hopefully she likes it!

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
154 tasting notes

This is one of the worst teas I’ve tried, though my friend likes it a lot. There’s just something about this tea that tastes weird, artificial, and oddly sweet. There’s nothing more that I can think of other than it’s “funky”, and not in a good way.

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

Picked up a few teas at Davids on the weekend and the moment I got home I had to brew this one up and then ice it. I wasn’t disappointed, it’s fruity and sweet and such a great colour. I could see kids absolutely loving this tea.

Like this one a lot! The first time I had it I don’t think I had it quite strong enough for my liking as an iced tea, as I was worried about the tart factor. but I burned through my little 25g in a few days and just got more. Think this one is a keeper!

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
5 tasting notes

I’ll start by saying I drink all my teas iced, and I don’t do any of the lingo, I just know what I like!

And I LOVE this!

Maybe it helps that I love popcorn, I’m not sure, but this is one of my faves. I was in DT a few weeks ago making my first tin purchase, when I asked the salesclerk to give me two of her favourites. This was one of them, and I’m so glad it was.

Tastes just like it smells, popcorn and apples. who knew?!

I got a sample of this back n March and am finally giving it a go. I am steeping it up in my perfect tea mug for around 3/4 minutes-ish. I love citrus teas BUT find they are usually not done well, so I am eternally on the search for a good one. I am not a fan of green teas in general but find they do work well for citrus, so I hope I don’t regret this decision.

The dry aroma is very sharp, like the zest of a clementine, tangerine or other sweet orange-like fruit. The steeped liquor is much more muted, with more of a green tea aroma than anything else. by that, i mean sweet hay or grass. Fields after the rain, that sort of thing. : )

In terms of taste, the citrus is not very forward. It is nicely disguised in the background of the green tea and is actually really pleasant. I would like a bit more citrus, but this really works. Especially to the idea of a tangerine tea, since there is the sweetness from the green. Definitely suitable but not a re-buy.

PS – The beau is now the fiancee. After eight years, we’re now “official.” I’m so excited! Now to plan and pay for (what we hope to be) a small intimate country wedding. We shall see..

This tea is so delicious I am speechless. Seriously. Stop reading reviews and go ahead and order yourself some. It’s like drinking liquid gold… but better.

Dry notes- smells just like a Pina Colada
I had to have this iced. It tastes just like a Pina Colada, aside from the not creamy-ness. I think this would be great with a splash of Malibu Rum… YUM!
I really enjoyed how well the pineapple & coconut played together. My only concern, slightly too sweet. I enjoy my teas without any sweetness (unless they’re black iced teas). So next time I will avoid adding the sugar hearts that come in it.

Kittenna

Ahh, I thought it was a good amount of sweetness for me, but I like my teas sweetened (and am simply learning to live without sweetness for anything that doesn’t brew up sweet by itself!)

tattooed_tea

I love sweets, but don’t like my teas sweet (unless they’re a desert tea). I will still drink this one though, I’ll just ditch the hearts.

This one is very good cold brewed! It really brings out the citrusy flavors. Next time I’ll add some of my own mint, as it wasn’t very strong.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Even though I seem to have tasting problems, I was really interested in this and wanted something to keep me company at work. I was really concerned at first. This smelt like grapefruit while it was steeping. I really DO NOT like grapefruit. I got another tea from here as a sample and it had grapefruit in it. I don’t remember what it was called, but it was definitely gross to me. Luckily, this looses the grapefruit smell after steeping.
I tried to make this iced, but ran out of time before work, so now it’s a kinda weird lukewarm thing. I feel like I can taste more with this than I have been with the other teas. It tastes and smells like the orange sherbet ice cream that my dad would always get me. Hopefully I can taste more when I get back to normal.

Kittenna

Oh…. yeah, Midsummer Night’s Dream is definitely grapefruity for me. I think I had similar thoughts about Pink Flamingo too. I like grapefruit though.

Emilie

I’m not getting the grapefruit in the flavor at all, which makes me happy. It’s pretty much vanilla orange ish for me. Do the gooseberries taste/smell like grapefruit maybe?

Kittenna

I’m honestly not sure! I’m glad it doesn’t taste like grapefruit for you though. I actually liked it because it did for me! But I haven’t had it in ages. Drank down my sample and haven’t picked up more yet.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

This tea came as a sample from Indigobloom – thanks so much!

The dry leaf is indeed very pretty with the shimmers of gold. After I smelled it, this definitely seems like a holiday tea but I’m having it as my after lunch tea anyway. :)

Steeped for 5 minutes via regular teapot method. There is something VERY strong in this tea that reminds me of Harney and Sons hot cinnamon spice. I think it must be the clove element, it’s actually kind of numbing my tongue. There does seem to be a lot of cinnamon too. I guess I’m really not one for cloves in tea for some reason. I don’t know if I can finish this… it’s too spicy for me. I tried adding some soymilk and it was still too strong — but thank you for the sample!

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

eeep! sorry to hear it wasn’t for you.
Do you have a piao? my fave thing about it is that it sparkles as it brews.

TeaBrat

I used to have a glass teapot but I broke that one. :(

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
58 tasting notes

It’s been so long since I’ve done a proper tasting note, I’m not actually sure how to describe this tea.

I would say this one is earthy but not in a straight up dirty kind of way. Maybe like wet leaves – oh wait, that’s what it is. :)

I can sort of taste the ‘coffee’ thing but wouldn’t say this was a substitute for coffee. It’s very good though.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
23 tasting notes

I was very surprised by this tea
I got it in one of two sampler packs from David’stea a couple days ago and this probably the best one so far
Im not a big fan of hot teas on hot mornings so I brewed it up as an iced latte and boy o boy was it ever good
It’s a nice roobois and the maple syrup really brings out the sweetness in it but I still added a little bit of agave but that may just be personal preference
In all a Sickkkk tea I would buy and recommend to everyone
