Recent Tasting Notes
I was sold by the cute logo on the front! A strawberry doing yoga? I can’t think of anything that more appeals to my sensibilities.
The tea is super yummy – different than anything I would usually pick out. I love the fruity taste and it smells like Fruit Stripe gum. Nice and relaxing, definitely feels good to sip a cup after doing some yoga.
Flavors: Raspberry, Strawberry
Delicious! Toasty coconut with just a hint of sweet floral lavender. I adore coconut, so this was my idea of perfect. Excellent with a baby-tiny-bit of sweetener and a hint of half&half. One of my favorites of David’s lineup.
Flavors: Coconut, Lavender, Toasty
Edit: I’m not sure what’s going on with this post, but the small paragraph I wrote shows up multiple times and can’t be edited for some reason. My apologies. There is some kind of glitch.
Ehh.. Not my favourite. This is the first cup in a very long time that I couldn’t finish.
Ehh.. Not my favourite. This is the first cup in a very long time that I couldn’t finish.I’m not sure if it’s the ginger that I find too strong (it definitely burns on the tongue, but I like the Super Ginger, so I’m not sure what’s going on here), or that I feel like it’s missing some other component to balance all of that ginger. I found the base tea to have an almost salty taste to it. I’ve had other pu-erh blends that I’ve enjoyed, so although I’m inexperienced I don’t think it’s a general pu-erh thing I don’t like. Something about this is just off to me. Maybe I’d like it better if I used some form of sweetener or blended it with something sweeter. I do tend to enjoy a bit of sweetness in otherwise spicy teas.

I wanted something to replace a cup of coffee in my day, and I gave this tea a try. It’s got yerba mate (roasted) for high caffeine, and some of my favorite chai spices. The nuance of the spices are more prevalent in the smell of the dry leaf, and tend to get drowned out by cinnamon in the brewed tea. The toasted yerba mate is great, not as astringent as black tea but with a nice warm body flavor, almost like a nuttier hojicha. The spices trick me into thinking this is sweeter than it is, with lots of cinnamon and ginger and just a hint of anise, it feels like a spicy baked cookie. A really great take on mate and worth the change of pace.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Ginger, Spices, Toasted, Vanilla
Eh. It’s almost a strange relief to find a tea I’m really not thrilled about because it means that’s one less to get a larger bag or tin of. Means I can put my student budget back towards food! Huzzah!
Anyway, this just really didn’t leave much of an impression on me. I had it a week ago, wasn’t particularly anything about it, then today kind of forced myself to give it another shot. And I’m still not particularly anything about it. It’s not especially caramel-y as I’d hoped, I do get the salt, but in absence of the caramel it’s a bit lonely. It tastes fine and all, just indistinct to me.
I enjoy this tea more than I thought I would. I got a sample of it in my advent calendar, and I liked it so much that I just bought a 125g tin of it when I saw it on sale at my local store.
Once brewed this tea mainly tastes like green rooibos (which is one of my favourite teas), but a bit creamy and sweet. The spices are pretty subtle.
It’s good on its own, but even better with a bit of milk.
I’m just going to say it and get it out of the way. It looks like swamp water. To be more graphic, this tea is what my grandfather would’ve called baby-shit green. You’re lucky you smell so good, Mulberry Magic! As a fan of nuts in general and macadamia nuts in particular, I really liked this. Tasted like a macadamia nut cookie (this was with the addition of honey), and some green and leafy flavour that I really can’t put my finger on. Maybe once I’ve tried more tea, I’ll be able to peg what that is exactly, but for now it’s just “leafy”. My immense powers of deduction tell me it’s probably the mulberry leaves (I know, right?!) but I’m not sure what it’d be best compared to. It isn’t too brazen at least, it isn’t like grass clippings or anything, so I found it to be quite a nice sip nearing the end of the day.
… I munched on a dry leaf and it kind of reminds me of broccoli, of all things.
One of my favourite teas. I love everything from the bright pink colour to the fruity and nutty mixture. The perfect tea for a day when you need cheering up. I read that this tea can be mixed with others, I look forward to trying :)
Flavors: Almond, Apple, Cinnamon
Very nutty, it doesn’t tase a thing like baklava but it is quite pleasant nonetheless. I’d say it has more of an archetypal “christmas” flavour than anything. I really enjoy this tea however, especially on a cold morning when reading. Best served hot.
I will however say, that you do not get your moneys worth compared to other teas by DAVIDStea. I was a bit disgruntled when I opened the jar to find a bag of dried fruit and nuts, with very little tea.
Flavors: Almond, Apple, Cinnamon, Walnut
The smell of this tea reminds me of winter and is definitely a delicious one too! The tartness of the hibiscus is balanced by the coconut, apple and cinnamon. The papaya and pineapple add a slight fruitiness! Perfect served hot or over ice as a teapop :)
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Coconut, Hibiscus, Pineapple
When I first had this tea i was very surprised. I usually like my teas pretty strong in taste, but I was in the mood for something with less of a kick and more of a subtle tone. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but even though i put less than i usually use, it still had that beautiful red color-and a fruity kick! I was not expecting it, so i couldn’t tell if I liked it. I had it again recently at a good friends house and I was satisfied. Not a favorite, but I needed to blog about it.
