This tea is awesome and is very helpful and delicious when sick. It doesn’t have mint or ginger, (though it does have almond). It is a very soothing drink on the throat and is sweeter than most teas for colds.
Flavors: Almond, Sweet
I was suprised at how much I liked this tea, considering I am still not a huge coffee person (there’s only a couple of ways I can drink it, both involve lots of milk, LOL). I liked the taste better than the smell on this one, and I may actually purchase some so that I can drink it when I’m craving coffee but can’t actually get coffee.
A delicate white tea that tastes very similar to a tropical fruit punch. The flavours are all mellowed, of course, but all the main fruits are easily detectable. I wouldn’t say mango is the major player here; it equally shares the spotlight with pineapple and orange. Not too bold, not too sweet, it makes an enjoyably refreshing cup of fruit tea.

Yes, yes, oh my goodness, yes. I love this tea. I’m drinking it every day. Every morning actually. It’s earthy yet chocolatey, yummy and rich, it does need a bit of sweetener to make things pop, but … yes… I love this. Is it hot chocolate-like? Well, I’m assuming more so if you add some sort of creamy milkishness to it? I don’t. I like it just the way it is. 50g will not be nearly enough for this puerh lover.
I should note I don’t drink this at boiling temperate. It’s richer, I find, at a touch before boiling.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Earth, Thick
I know I have reviewed this tea before because it is in my spreadsheet and I have drank it many times over the last few years. Oh well, I guess Steepster ate another one of my notes.
I have a real sweet tooth, and instead of reaching for something sweet and high in calories after supper, this is a good substitute. It is very sweet, and it is best enjoyed as a dessert latte.
I opened this and backed away quickly. It reeks of alcohol, my husband gagged after smelling it and my mother said it smelled of liqueur filled chocolates. I wasn’t hoping for much as I brewed this, and I’m glad that I didn’t get my hopes up. It smelled slightly less of rubbing alcohol as it steeped, and started to smell spicy instead. Upon drinking though, I found there was a definite alcohol-ish flavour to it. It was sweet, I could taste the maple, and a mass of spices that I could not readily identify individually, but that alcoholic aftertaste was just blargh!
Flavors: Alcohol, Maple, Spices
I apologize in advance, but this is more a review of the buying experience than of the tea (skip to last paragraph for the tea).
I went to lunch in a new shopping area near our home. It is pretty upscale, and I was surprised to see a David’s Tea across the street from our restaurant. My wife insisted on checking it out (I confess I was thinking of coming back on Black Friday). She said we should buy some tea that the grand-kids would like, since Teavana seems to have discontinued Wonderberry, which had been their favorite tea. The store was empty, so we got the full attention of the two very chic salespeople.
It reminded me of a Teavana: tea canisters on the wall behind a counter and various shelves with tea pots and accessories. The weird thing was that they absolutely refused to tell me how much the tea cost. We picked out a couple of teas to smell, and when I asked how much it cost, the clerk pulled a canister from under the counter and told me it would cost $15-$20 to fill it half-way up, and that I could bring the canister back for refills. I already have more canisters than I can use, so I asked if they have bags. The clerk admitted that they do. I then asked for 2 ounces since “she who must be obeyed” was really insistent on buying something. The good news is that she then put pretty much exactly 2 ounces and charged me about $10, which is pricey but not exorbitant.
The good news is that I really love the tea. To be honest, I didn’t even notice it was puerh until we got home The tea has a strong taste of milk chocolate floating over a rich depth of puerh flavor. The two flavors work very well together and make for a wonderful tea. My grand-kids love it as well.
This tea is ok, I’m not in love though. It has a strong leafy/woodsy flavour and I did get a hint of smoke. I have eaten a lot of pumpkin seeds in my day, but always roasted with the shell on. The seeds in here are shelled and the flavour coming off them is not what I was expecting, it’s a bit like sunflower seeds. The last few sips tasted heavily of nutmeg. I don’t dislike it, I will drink it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Nutmeg, Smoke
Wooo, ginger explosion! This tea has a strong ginger flavour that hits you both up front and as a dull burn aftertaste. In between are mellow notes of citrus to lighten the load. Adding any sort of sweetener made this spacey tea quite unpleasant and I would not recommend doing so. Overall a very zesty and invigorating selection for all those long tiring days.

More like buttercream icing chocolate pound cake than red velvet, but that’s ok with me. Sweet, chocolate-y, vannilla-licious. It does a good job bringing cake to mind, just not the intended variety. I liked it a lot, but the sprinkles do leave an unappealing red waxy goo around the top of the cup, which I wiped off with a paper towel prior to tea consumption.
Flavors: Cake, Chocolate, Vanilla, White Chocolate
This is a delightfully minty tea, with sugar it is just like candy. It doesn’t get 100 because I feel it’s a tad weak at the recommended amount. Upon upping the loose tea though it is just bursting with candy cane flavour! Christmas here I come!
Flavors: Candy, Peppermint, Vanilla
Terry’s Chocolate Orange. That is what this smells and tastes like, and i love it. Nothing says Christmas in my neck of the woods quite like a chocolate orange, the staple of stocking stuffers. The main flavour here is the orange, but the chocolate and earthy pu-erh shine through. I recommend stirring the tea in the filter to help dissolve the chocolate bits or else you will get a orange-y first brew and a chocolate-y second brew, but not so much of both flavours at the same time.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Orange
This is a much better option than DavidsTea Snow Day. It’s a blend of black tea, a bit of peppermint leaves and some vanilla as well. The scent is nice; not overwhelming or artificial. And it tastes exactly like what it is. The hint of vanilla is nice. The peppermint is fairy subtle but I plan to add some peppermint leaves of my own in the future to heighten the minty taste a bit.
Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint, Vanilla
Really disappointed. This tea sounded so good in theory. But the reality is that it’s over-fragranced and over-flavored. Normally the combo of peppermint and chocolate is wonderful but this has a weird, chemical, artificial aftertaste to it that rendered it undrinkable for me.
Flavors: Peppermint, Perfume
Glitter underwhelming, and the same can be said for the black tea flavor. Pretty weak compared to other cinnamon black teas I’ve tried. Would only recommend if you prefer lighter teas, like white teas, and are trying to get into black teas.
I’m going to increase my tea to water ratio, and see if that improves this tea for me.

I don’t know what I was expecting. I don’t think I was paying enough attention to the ingredients. It smells like blueberries. The aftertaste tastes like blueberries. It’s the initial floral taste that I’m not crazy about. Thankfully the aftertaste lingers quite a bit. I think I’d really enjoy this iced and sweetened. However, since I’m avoiding sweeteners for the time being, I thought I’d try this hot and I’m not too keen on it. I’m both glad that I only have a few grams to sipdown for now and that it’s a permanent tea should I want to revisit it when/if I start reintroducing sweeteners to my diet.
Flavors: Blueberry, Floral
Liked it! I’m more of a coffee drinker, but this satisfied my inner caffeine fiend & sweet tooth. It is the best chocolatey tea I’ve ever had and has a fudgy aroma.
It does not need additional sugar AT ALL. I’ve had it on two separate occasions and the second time brewed it twice. The second cup from that tasted more like pu’erh than the first did.
I didn’t expect to care for this but the pu’erh is really great with chocolate. I’ll be buying it again.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth, Rice
I really enjoyed this brewed with a regular orange pekoe tea (for some body) and a splash of milk. My cup tasted like warm and slightly sweet banana bread!
However, I did want to point out that it took 25 g to brew one small cup. As a tisane, this is just dried fruits and nuts, no tea, which makes it very heavy. At $3.50 + a tea bag per glass, this is a little pricey compared to other teas. Based on that, I’ll probably keep trying other flavours instead of re-purchasing this.
Flavors: banana, Brown Sugar, Dates
This is as close to coffee as it gets, folks. I am not a coffee drinker so I was sceptical going into this, but the flavours work very successfully as a tea. A powerful coffee bean flavour dominates, helped along with more subtle notes of cinnamon. The flavour isn’t complex so much as bold. Quite delicious and rich, this would go well with many desserts.
