This was oh so yummy as a wake up tea! I made this one in my new Timolino from Davids. I loved the taste but I think I would’ve liked it better if i had put plain whole milk in instead of a shot of sweet italian cream creamer. This is definitely getting added to my personal tea wall. I bought a bunch to try out to see if they made it in my permanent collection, this one does :)
Dry nose: lightly minty, fragrant, sweet.
Tasting note: lightly minty, fragrant, sweet. Pretty straightforward, the candy cane sprinkles are fun. I think next time I make this I’m going to garnish it with a candy cane and let that add a bit more minty sweetness. Yeah.
I am really not a fan of the smell of this tea right out of the bag. It’s very pungent, almost chemical. But I thought I’d give it a shot anyways, and make a chai latte with almond milk.
12oz unsweetened almond milk
4oz whole milk
Boiled for 8 minutes on the stovetop.
Tastes much better than it smells I think, the cinnamon is lovely and the vanilla stands out without being too overbearing, like it smells.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Vanilla
I love a good fruit and black tea blend, and this caught my eye as an attractive tea. I like all the flavors, so I thought, hey, why not.
Holy Fruit, Batman! This has got huge chunks of fruit in it, and they seem to take a lot more room than the tea itself. It smells delicious.
I like it! Its a sweet tea, with a crisp fruitiness to it. It has a creaminess to it. I can’t find vanilla listed as an ingredient, but it seemed to have it.
Not the strongest black tea, but I liked it. A great autumnal tea.
I love, love, love this tea. It is one of my all time favourites. It is a black tea with a hint of blueberry. I love to drink it in the morning because the fruitiness is not too forward. There is also a hint of burnt sugar.
When you open the tin it is a beautiful tea. It is full of dried blueberries. It absolutely reminds me of wild blueberry season in Ontario.
Flavors: Blueberry, Burnt Sugar, Jam
I got a sample of this in one of my online orders. I poured out the package into a filter only to realize theirs enough in the sample for at least 3 cups so I poured it into an empty tin. That being said my tummy wasn’t feeling well, I think due to a lack of food but it’s too late to eat, so I made this an went without sweeter or milk. I have Moroccan Mint from Teavana but it just doesn’t measure up to this! I always burn the Teavana one and it’s bitter and gross and I have to have honey (though I did get a decent cup last time), but not Peppermint Amour. It has a nice minty flavor that cools your throat and it’s not so vegetal that you need sweetener to make it palatable. Definitely a win on this one DT.
One of my free DAVIDsTEA samples. I didn’t think I would like this, but it’s very good! Mild maple flavor so it isn’t too sweet. You can really taste the cinnamon. This is perfect for a cold winter night.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple
Picked up an oz of this while at the store today. I had to sugar it up a bit because it wasn’t sweet enough on its own so i put in a few pieces of rock sugar and a little caramel honey stick. Yummy :) I made it as a latte but it didn’t stay frothed like I wanted, oh well, next time.
Our Pennsylvania store opened today and of course I went to check it out! I got this as a to-go because I was unsure of wether or not I would like it and $11.50 is a lot to pay for a mistake. I have never liked more traditional teas but this one was delicious! It was so creamy and it was sweet on its own. I will be buying this one next time and I’m hoping I get the job there on Monday after my interview :)
I hate eggnog, I don’t know why I bought this. Whatever, I guess it smells pretty good and it’s full of white chocolate.
Brewed at boiling for 8 minutes. It got really cloudy, probably from the white chocolate pieces.
It’s… Okay. Wouldn’t buy again, but not undrinkable.
Because having the flu means sampling all the teas I just bought!
Smells like chocolate cake, very indulgent. The sprinkles are fun but probably unnecessary?
Brewed with boiling water for about 5 minutes in my new Adagio IngenuiTEA brewer.
Pretty good, I think I’ll brew it stronger next time to get more of the chocolatey flavor. Definitely needs sugar given the dessert like nature of the tea.
I was really excited when I heard of this tea. Pumpkin? Cheesecake? YES PLEASE!
But… I don’t really get anything special from this tea at all. There’s an aftertaste that reminds me of the name? And it smells like pumpkin and lemon and sweet…. but I really can’t find myself loving it. There’s just not enough to it, and what there is just isn’t spectacular. Not… bad? Just… not anything really great either.
This was my first yellow tea ever, and what an introduction. I love this tea. It’s delicate and brews this brilliant honeyed yellow. It’s brews smooth and naturally sweet, almost like honeysuckle. There are notes of hay, fresh grass, and a lingering floral note with each sip. The flavour will stay with you long after your cup is done. I’m excited to check out more yellow teas as that honey-flavour is a very typical note for them.
Flavors: Hay, Honey
this has become my go to dessert tea especially due to the low caffeine. It’s got that classic oolong smoothness (thought not strongly “tea” flavored) with the addition of sweet papaya and smooth pistachios. I think I want to try infusing this into some of my baking experiments. The best part is that the lingering taste very reminiscent of actual baklava. The first steep is best on this one as the fruit loose a bit of their body the second and third time around, but as the base of this is an oolong I encourage multiple steeps. (I’ve gotten 5 good ones).
Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Nuts, Toasty
I’m OBSESSED. I drink this at least three times a week (and that’s with about 30 other teas I have up for grabs). It’s delicate for a chai (no ingredient overwhelms another) and has a super smooth mouth feel. I like the addition of licorice root to it; adds a little extra zing i haven’t seen in many other chais by David’s. I’ve found that even an accidental over steep yields a good cup, though I’ve found a 3 minute steep at 175 degrees is perfect.
Flavors: Spices, Vanilla
This is a non-winter/holiday tea that I was curious about, and Roswell was kind enough to send me a sample out of her own stash. I don’t have much experience with maté, but anything roasted appeals to me and the other flavors involved sounded so yummy that I wanted to try it anyway.
The tea itself is definitely quite chunky. There are lots of big pieces, like sliced almonds, cacao shells, dried raspberries, etc. The maté kind of resembles a darker roasted kukicha in some places, while in others it’s more fragmented and reminds me of fish food. Dry smell is amazingly raspberry and roasty.
Wow, I have to say, I really really like this tea. The raspberry flavor is strong and yummy and sweet, like raspberry jam. I can definitely taste the chocolate, and it melds wonderfully with the roasted and nutty flavors. Overall, it’s just yum, and so comforting. I can’t comment on the energy effect yet, but we shall see if I’m bouncing off the walls in a little bit. Delicious!
Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Coffee, Jam, Raspberry, Roasted, Sweet
What a treat this gyokuro is. It’s richly vegetal with this lingering aroma and taste of browned butter. It’s the perfect compliment to sea food, especially the raw variety. Since its grown under the shade, it also contains a high amount of amino acids giving you the perfect little mid day boost! :)
Flavors: Butter, Spinach
