drank Blueberry Muffin by DAVIDsTEA
15 tasting notes

Excuse me, but is this a baked good or a tea? Because this tea tastes exactly like a fresh blueberry muffin straight out of the oven. It’s on the sweeter side, but nothing unbearable. The tartness of the blueberry cuts through the sweetness a tad bit. Definitely an excellent dessert tea. I’ve steeped the same tea ball 3 times now and the flavor isn’t any weaker than the first cup. All of the aromas blend perfectly together to smell like a blueberry muffin. I do detect a whiff of hibiscus, carrot, and raisin.

Flavors: Blueberry, Carrot, Custard, Hibiscus, Raisins

This was the first full size DAVIDsTEA I ever tasted. I picked this one out after they told me I could have any full size tea I wanted for free when I signed up for their rewards program. This one stood out to me as a very interesting smell, so I picked it for hot brew. I assumed they used 1 DAVIDsTEA Perfect Scoop, however I do not know the exact water temperature :-/ Unfortunately, I think I might be allergic to something in this tea as I think my throat felt like it closed every time I took a sip even though I thought it was quite delicious :-( I looked at all the ingredients in the tea and I think it might be the cardamom since I don’t think it’s rooibus itself because I had a small sample of the Buchu Superfruit before and didn’t have the same reaction.

This tea is indeed quite creamy and also smooth. I really enjoy it with a bit of sugar added. Probably my favourite straight oolong as well.

This was my very first loose leaf (and DAVIDsTEA) steep at home. I used my new DAVIDsTEA Rosy Pink Origami Travel Mug and because I couldn’t figure out how to get my electric kettle to work, I just boiled some water in the microwave using a glass Pyrex measuring cup. I then poured it into the mug and then used my new Pink DAVIDsTEA Perfect Scoop to measure out 1 Perfect Scoop to put in the infuser and steeped for 5 minutes exactly. I think it came out WAAYY too hot bc I put the water in the microwave for too long. I also left in the “leaves” in longer than I should have after the steeping time. I think it came out too strong, but even still I LOVE the hibiscus!!! But maybe it would have been more balanced if I didn’t steep as long or leave the leaves in while drinking? Anyhow, I don’t see it being one of my “everyday” teas, even though I rated it quite high. I think next time I am going to only use half a Perfect Scoop (if that’s possible to get exact enough). It will be less calories too….10 calories for 16.9 ounces instead of 20 calories :-P

Taste like a bitter version of Hot Chocolate puerh tea… (wich I dislike at first) Do you have so much leftover ingredients that you have to make this tea to get rid of some of those?

Unoriginal, and not very good IMO.

This is the tea of all teas for me. With the genuine gingerbread cookie smell and the smoothness of the flavour its delicious. It’s not overwhelmingly strong but I feel like its a tea my tastebuds can really pick up without it having to be some crazy intense fruity sensation as many “flavourful” teas are. Having one of my few remaining mugs of it now and I’m terribly upset David’s has not brought this one back!

Flavors: Bark, Ginger, Honey

In my opinion, this is the only tea from the last year or so that taste unique or different than one of their other teas, wich is good.

Good hot or even cold (surprisingly!)

I’ve found that this tea is very mild. It steeps to a pale yellow colour and smells sweet and nutty. The taste is very smooth and pleasant but not very strong. Upon resteeping I added an additional .5 of a teaspoon to get the same sort of result as my first steep. This tea would be a nice treat from time to time but I can’t see me stocking it in my cupboard constantly.

Flavors: Chocolate, Nutty, Sweet

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #7
Here is an odd one I get to try from Davids. It’s also a teabox sipdown. I thought it was an interesting mix of ingredients but I swear I could only taste splenda. Yuck. Maybe hints of odd fruit here and there. I think the yerba mate at least helped my brain though… I was able to get some focused power reading done yesterday.

Well, not many ratings on this one. I think I can guess why… It’s definitely not what I was expecting. It smells quite similar to cocoa canela, but doesn’t taste at all similar. I’m thinking this weird taste is probably the fennel or fenugreek… It’s weird, no doubt. I’m not sure I even like this at all. For some reason it kind of resembles licorice, which I’m absolutely not a fan of. Ick.

I dumped it down the sink.

Flavors: Fennel, Licorice

drank Nutty and Spice by DAVIDsTEA

Wow, definitely fell in love with this one!! I also feel like it’s better than Bubbies was – for me at least. Maybe it’s the added ingredients. Anyway I really love this tea, and I can drink it any time of day. I love the spice and fruity notes to it. I think it’s the cinnamon I love as well. It smells lovely and tastes just as amazing. Usually I don’t like nutty things, but am LOVING this.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Cranberry, Nutty

I enjoyed this one a lot as well!

drank Moroccan Mint by DAVIDsTEA

Interesting blend of peppermint AND spearmint. I’m not usually a mint fan at all, but lately I’ve been enjoying it in some teas. I had a cup of this tea to go and it wasn’t bad. But it seemed sort of plain mint to me. I enjoyed my cup, and it didn’t last long, but I definitely liked Cinnamint Mate better.

drank Cocoa Boost by DAVIDsTEA

I officially hate this tea. I don’t think I’ve hated a tea this much before… Surprising, right? At first I didn’t mind the smell, and I tried it in store, but it had an interesting taste… I was unsure. SO I bought 15g to try at home, had a hot cup, thought it was tolerable, but meh. Then I took someones suggestion to try it as an iced latte with honey in it – and NOPE. I found myself JUST able to finish it, and after that I felt like gagging when I smelled it. It was horrible… Maybe I’m just not the biggest fan of pu’erh tea.

Flavors: Bitter, Cocoa

Don’t let this tea shape your entire perception of Pu’erh – there’s FAR better stuff out there (even within DAVIDsTEA alone). This just isn’t a great blend.

Personally, as far at flavoured stuff goes, I’d test the waters with either Chocolate Orange or Juicy Orange. In my opinion those are two of the better Pu’erh blends we sell at DAVIDsTEA at the moment. English Toffee is also quite popular, though admittedly I find it a bit rich.

This is a nice green tea. I taste the lemongrass and citrusy notes – while there’s a little hint of the schizandra berry too… I only grabbed a bag when it was being retired, but that’s all I’ll need. I’ll enjoy what I have left.

Clean, clear, creamy but also a little white chocolatey. Very nice holiday feel to it.

drank Honey Black by DAVIDsTEA
745 tasting notes

Thanks Evol! Brewing it up Gong Fu, and the first sip is mostly malty with a slight honey aftertaste. Nice body and texture with a little bit of a chocolate covered raisin thing going on, but I get malt, honey hints, and smooth texture more than anything else. Malty black tea overall. The same can be said for the later steeps. A little flat, but again thick and smooth in terms of texture. I did not enjoy this one as much as the other samples you gave me Evol, but it is not bad.

Evol Ving Ness

I preferred the other DT blend which you sampled the other day as well.
