Making a 2 am tea tasting session with my roommate… I made her taste my Youthberry and Orange Blossom blend and we tried her Gold Rush. She doesn’t like it so that means I have one new tea in my stash.. Yeah!
I think it tastes delicious, so creamy and caramelly!

Flavors: Caramel

This one was a pleasant surprise.

I’ve had it in my cupboard for a while, waiting on the right time to try it. When I saw the name I assumed it would be one of the super sugary herbal blends that I usually can’t stand, but then I saw that it was a black tea. Guess I should maybe look up what I’m drinking before I hopelessly oversteep.

I don’t know if it’s the intense craving for baked goods that I’ve had lately or what my deal is, but this really hit the spot. I enjoy sweeter elements like nuts and cinnamon/sugar so much more in black teas than herbal teas. I feel like the slightly bitter base balances them quite well. This may not be a tea I would drink every day or at just any time of day, but it was just what I needed this afternoon. I’m drinking my third cup as we speak.

This is a very delicious tea. I have found myself craving it and only it from time to time. But like you, I would not drink it daily. Once every two weeks or so does the trick. And it resteeps nicely too.

It does resteep very nicely. I only have a bit, so I mainly drink it on days when I’ll be around to have multiple cups.

Ive been finding that rooibos teas are becoming my favourite. This was a nice change to the ones I usually drink. Im not the biggest fan of chai, but I did enjoy this tea. It was not lacking in the spice department, could have use a little more cocoa. If you like chai I would recommend this one.

I was pretty excited to try my sample of this tea. It had very strong ginger taste and only slightly peach. If the roles had been reversed, I may have considered buying a little more. It would be great for those times you need a little help feeling better. Ginger is pretty amazing that way.

I received this tea in a 5gram sample. Im not the biggest fan of green teas. Maybe thats why this kind of reminded me of a nutty seaweed lol. I guess for a green tea it was ok. Not one I would re purchase.

This tea smells exactly like tart strawberries and slightly creamy when dry. After it is steeped, I can slightly smell the rhubarb. I was curious what this tea would taste like with a splash of milk and it was pretty good. It tastes just like strawberry yogurt. Nice way to curb the sweet tooth without all the calories. This is one of the only times I tried to re-steep a tea, and it turns out it taste just like rhubarb on the 2nd time around. I would keep some on hand but couldn’t drink this on a regular basis. It does make my kitchen smell amazing, which I love!!

This tea was a nice surprise. It smells just like orange juice, when dry and steeped. I love that this is a stimulant, its a nice change to having to drink black teas for a pick me up. I only had a 5g sample of this, but it did not disappoint. This is one I would add to my tea stock. Just like orange juice for breakfast without the acidic-ness. Would be great as iced tea as well.

When I first opened this bag of tea, the the smell was amazing! Just like maraschino cherries. The taste is similar to the smell, but I find it lacking something. This is probably because I went into it expecting sweet cherries. It is a nice tea to have on occasion, but is not something I would keep on hand.

Flavors: Apple, Cherry

This tea smells exactly like wine in my opinion, which I do enjoy. The taste is similar, with notes of tart apples and cinnamon. I only have 25grams of this tea, once it is gone I will not re-purchase. A little too tart for my liking.

This tea smells wonderfully of nuts and bananas. The taste follows. I find this tea tasting different every time I make it. Thanks to the reviews on here, I followed direction and used Davids tea disposable bags, to avoid a messy clean up. This tea was fairly weak, so I added double the amount recommended in the 16oz cup then steeped for 10 minutes. No need for sweetener with this one. I had purchased 100 grams of this and received 50 grams for free. It barely filled up my 100g tin, because its soo heavy. I probably wouldn’t purchase again, but im glad to have tried it, because I love banana flavoured anything!

This tea smells slightly like burnt caramel and is not salty at all. The taste is the exact same. I was only able to drink one cup of this, now It just sits on my tea shelf.My son who loves to smell all of our teas, cant stand this one, I agree. The reviews sounded fairly good. I think i’m one of the only few people thad does not like this one.

At first I really enjoyed this tea. The taste of chocolate and coconut was nice. On my second and third cup I found I was dumping half the cup out because of the wired coconut flavour. I believe I have something against steeped coconut, even though I love the real thing. I will keep trying coconut flavour teas to see if this is true. On the other hand my boyfriend did enjoy this one more than I did. Would not repurchase.

This tea smells like candied almonds in the tin, but surprisingly tastes like slightly spiced apple and almonds once steeped. The smell reminds me of an apple crisp. This is not a tea I drink all the time, but it is nice on occasion. I do enjoy the pink colour of this teas, as well as it being caffeine free.

This is an all around great tea. I always find myself reaching for this one in the morning for a pick me up. It has a nice blend of almonds raspberries and chocolate, they do not overpower one another. This tea does not require any milk or sweeter, but im sure it would be amazing either way.

This tea smelled really nice in the tin, Just like english toffee with chocolate. I steeped for 7 minutes, as i like my tea on the stronger side and added a splash of milk. The end result tasted like Davids tea Chocolate macaroon, which is not my favourite. It tasted slightly better to me as it cooled off. I Would not purchase again tho.
UPDATE: just tried this in a tea latte, and the toffee flavour is way more pronounced than in a regular tea. Very enjoyable!!

I dont really know why no one likes this tea xD It’s actually the reason I got into David’s. It’s got strong chamomille and licorice flavours so I guess if you dont like licorice its a no-go. Personally I adore the sweetness it brings to the tea and the some-what bitter after taste. If you like black licorice than this will be your holy grail! Its also one of those teas you can munch on the leaves (I always leave my leaves in as I drink)

Flavors: Licorice, Orange Zest, Peppermint, Sweet

My new favourite tea! Cinnamon hearts are literally my favourite candy and with valentines day coming up this tea is perfect!! When I initially brewed it, it was alright- there was an overwhelming cinnamon flavour which quite honestly, I don’t mind.

I left the leaves in it as I drank it and the more it steeped and cooled the better it got. There’s definitely very strong cinnamon flavours and if you like cinnamon then it’s perfect. It’s also quite sweet but there is not sugar or stevia under the ingredients… The green tea is very subtle but I guess you could easily brew it alongside a green tea bag and it would be great too.

Overall I really like the spicy-ness (?) of the tea. There are a lot of flavours going on and I would suggest drinking it as an unsweeted iced-tea or even lukewarm xD

Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Sweet

This is one of my favorite teas to smell and taste. You wouldn’t believe there are zero peanuts in it, but it smells so much like a reeses peanut butter cup. Bonus: it’s not sweet, if it is, it’s just mild enough to count. Such a delight!

drank Ginger Beer by DAVIDsTEA

I am a huge fan of ginger beer and ginger flavor in general, so I love this tea. Yesterday, I put some into my Teavana travel tumbler and let it steep for the entirety of my ~30 min commute to school. By the time I got to class, my tea was perfectly spicy with strong ginger flavor. If this were made as a tea pop, I could see it tasting almost exactly like ginger beer!

If you’re not a fan of such a strong ginger flavor, I would recommend steeping this tea for only a few minutes – this allows some of the other flavors to shine alongside the ginger.

I’ve tried this one a couple times and I have to say that it’s best with a little bit of cream added. It bring out the chocolate flavor and dials down the bitterness. Without cream, it’s a little bitter, especially with the black tea as the base.
