I most likely will have to try this tea hot. It tastes like Cherry coke and smells like it but somehow when it was cold it was too strong. I tried to drink it slowly in the car feeling that it would grow on me but strangely it didn’t work and I had to dump it in the sink. And for a David’s blend I was definitely surprised.

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA
69 tasting notes

This tea has a perfect lemon flavor, it tastes natural, the creaminess of the yougurt complements it perfectly and it has a fine balance between calm and refreshing brew. Some of the David’s teas are known for their more flavorful teas that make you question how much of natural stuff goes into them but this one feels just right. Due to the ingredients it’s not something I would drink often but it’s a great choice for when I feel citrusy.

drank Citron Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
6770 tasting notes

softrevolution sent me a nice baggie of this! Thanks a bunch!

I remember LOVING Rishi’s Citron Oolong but haven’t tried DavidsTea’s Version until now. It’s pretty good. I don’t know if it’s as Citrony as the Rishi or if it was just my error in steeping times…this was a more muted or mellow Citron and maybe a tad more floral flavor. Regardless it was still tasty.

When I can’t find Rishi’s this right up there to have on hand!

Tastes like Tang. But it is tea. Nice but not great because it tastes too much like those juice crystals.

drank Luscious Watermelon by DAVIDsTEA
15 tasting notes

It’s really good

I tried this one iced and frankly, I was not expecting to like it (I’m not a fan of iced tea and even less of fruity tisanes/herbal teas)

It’s so fresh and sweet, really smells like watermelon… Even taste like a
juicy watermelon. So refreshing in the summer.

My two kids loved it (2 and 4 years old) even whitout any sugar in it.

I was trying to find a tea this morning that would cure me of the spins, as a result of lastnight’s escapades. Don’t judge, I rarely drink and after all the fireman business I needed a night out, alas it did not work haha
I’m not sure who I got his one from but it was in a swap and on my shopping list.
it did smell a bit on the old side and unfortunately this came through a bit on the taste, but the apple comes out enough to mask it and be a good apple tea. I don’t really think I am getting any other flavours here. I thought it could use more cinnamon but then it would probably taste too much like Forever Nuts.
overall a good apple tea that is mice and light

This tea is so yum. Very berry-y, and not bitter when steeped for about 4 minutes. I just might have to buy 100 g of this on my next trip to DAVIDsTEA…

drank Caramel Spice by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

Currently drinking this tonight while typing this review. The fragrant notes and the warmth of the cinnamon really work to make this tea perfect for the turn of the season. It was one of my favorites next to Pumpkin Chai from the fall collection. Suffice to say I stocked up on this one. The mulberries really lent well to provide that caramel taste and I loved that fact.

It was last May at West Edmonton Mall when I first tried this tea. I had eaten something rather spicy at one of the restaurants on Bourbon Street. My stomach wasn’t exactly happy to say the least after that but after arriving to David’s I ordered one cup of this Spearmint tea it more than helped. The cooling effects of the mint as well as the medicinal notes settled the aches and I was able to go on with the rest of the day. Refreshed and re-energized.

I drank the last of my stash last night. Sigh. It was good while it lasted. I love the soothing hint of spearmint through the citrusy-fruity tea. This was one of the teas that I could take traveling with me and not worry about whether I had milk or sugar handy in the hotel room. I like it well enough, but won’t be restocking until I get through more of the tea in my cupboard.

I’ve been hemming and hawing over this one for a few days. Might as well give it a go since the pitcher is almost done.

Earlier this year I tried this tea hot. I loved it. Anything citrus appeals to me, and that touch of mint was very nice. This is one of the rare teas that I don’t feel the need to add milk or sugar too, so it makes a great travel tea that I can make up easily in my hotel room.

A few days ago, I made a pitcher of iced tea with this. I’m having a love/hate relationship with it. I still really enjoy the citrus notes, but now I don’t like the minty thread through it. Yet, I find it really refreshing to drink, even though I’m always taken aback by that first sip. I’m wondering if it’s because my last two pitchers of iced tea were very fruity sweet, and this one isn’t. It’s only very lightly sweetened this time because that pitcher of Luscious Watermelon was a bit much. It feel though that more simple syrup would make the Midsummer Night’s Dream iced tea worse.

I only have enough to make one more mug so I’m going back to hot for this one. I haven’t decided if I like it well enough to buy it again, but I’m glad I got the chance to give this a try.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

I can remember like yesterday the first ever tea I tried at David’s. What entranced me most when shown this blend was the magical shimmering effect when the sugar crystals melted. It really did look enchanting and the scent was tantalizing. Slowly I would bring the cup to my lips to take in the full deep flavor notes. Mmm..the cinnamon sweet taste was just as wonderful as expected. It was not too overwhelming like some cinnamon teas and made me fall in love with trying more from the store. Ever since then I’ve been hooked and try to visit the store at least once a week.

Mmm this smells delicious.
Taste is slightly earthy from the mate. Chocolate-y but not fake or overly sweet.
The cinnamon gives in a nice smooth finish but adds a nice kick. There is maybe a tad bit too much cinnamon for my liking, but it is still really good.

I think my go-to chocolate mate is still Chocolate Rocket

drank White Tiger (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

100th tasting note for the win. The SA at the store threw a sample of this into my bag and seeing that I’m nursing a cold, I figured the antioxidants in this would do me some good.

Dried blueberries and cornflowers galore in this, and steeped, the aroma is mild, and very similar to the handful of fresh blueberries I had for breakfast. Regarding the taste of the tea, there is a masterful balance between the realistic blueberry flavour and gentle floral notes from the base. The peony is simply gorgeous.

The best blueberry white I’ve experienced to date.

drank Cherry Potion by DAVIDsTEA
8063 tasting notes

So admittedly this steep was a bit of an experiment. I had enough for one cup from Indigobloom however in my house, that means i’m a cup short lol! All our mugs are too deep or too wide to properly steep in any of them for just a single cup. Soooo i improvised :) Go go pyrex dish lol Anyway this tea makes me a little sad. It has so much potential to be wonderful and tasty. The smell as it’s steeping was enough to make my other half go “ooooh that smells yummy,” which he rarely does when it comes to my tea obsession. However there’s a bitterness to it when steeped that say “thanks but no thanks.” What this does do however, is make me want to find a really great cherry tea! I developed a weird allergy to them after 25+ years of eating them just fine, but only in normal form…so a cheery tea would let me have that yummy taste again!

Indigobloom

I’ve been hunting for a great cherry tea as well! that’s why I got cherry matcha…
and it all started with this blend lol

Kittenna

Pyrex dish?! Nice!!

Sil

Yeah…I’m a rock star lol Ian was like WTF are you doing? Is this some weird tea thing you’re into? Lol

I really like this tea iced. I tried it hot first and immediately put it over ice.
It was overly fruity hot- but just right iced. Didnt need any sweetner.
