drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Hum. This one has a sickly scent and taste. Too sweet and nutty plus something else I can’t quite make out. Not my cup of tea.

Flavors: Coconut, Nutty, Sweet

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

I liked this one. I bought it last summer and still have a little of it left. It is really good iced and tastes sweet and…like cotton candy. A sweet treat. would be great as an iced latté.

Flavors: Cotton Candy, Sugar

drank Banana Split by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

This one really amazed me on the first sip! I had it as an iced latte and it tasted just like a banana/chocolate milkshake. However, as it is really sweet, I felt a little nauseous after drinking it all! But still a nice tea and a great alternative to other sweet and unhealty snacks.

Flavors: banana, Chocolate, Creamy, Meringue

drank Black Cherry by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

It basically just tasted like cherry cough syrup… I really did not enjoy this tea because of its artificial and medicinal flavour. It doesn’t taste like cherry coke, that’s for sure

Flavors: Cherry, Medicinal

drank Jumpy Monkey by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

I really like this one, better than the old blend. I like that it smells of chocolate and coffee (like a moka). It wakes up, which is good, and actually tastes better than coffee! A great alternative for those who want something else to wake them up.

Flavors: Cocoa, Coffee, White Chocolate

drank The Buzz by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

The ginger in this tea reaaaaaallly burns! I like it. I would certainly drink it on days when I am sick but still need to get up. I like the lemongrass in it too, and the smell of the dry leaves is quite pleasant. I did not want to purchase it at first (I don’t really remember why) but it seems to have grown on me.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemongrass

drank Main Squeeze by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

I remember going to school with this in my travel mug, and I will probably do the same this fall. It is a great pick-me-up and I like the idea of an energizing tea mixed with exotic fruit flavors. A good tea.

I liked the smell of this one, and it basically tastes the same. It is not a bad tea, but I wish there wasn’t stevia in it :( … I would not repurchase because of this, since I really don’t like pre-sweetened teas.

drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Finally a Puerh that I don’t dislike! It smells just like cinnamon heart candies and it tastes like very strong cinnamon, with a hint of puerh. I think I would like it as a latté.

Flavors: Cinnamon

drank Juicy Orange by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Hum. Nope. Way too artificial for my taste. I made me think I was drinking orange flavoured water with artificial sweetener (such as spenda) . Maybe I oversteeped it, but all the same, I don’t think I would like it better weaker. This is really disappointing because the dry leaves smelled soooooo good!

Flavors: Orange, Sweet

drank Ginseng Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

This one was weird! I can’t decide weither I like it or not. What I can say, however, is that I liked the second steep better than the first one. I liked the taste of the straight oolong, but soon I became overwhelmed by the buttery sweetness of ginseng. It lasted very long after swallowing and it kind of weirded me out a bit. The second steep was less sweet and I could taste more of the straight oolong, which was great.

Flavors: Butter, Sweet

Hum. I really did not like this one, though I really wished I would enjoy my cup. It IS quite relaxing, I was sleepy after a few sips. However, it smelled weird and the taste was almost…like fish? Weird.

Flavors: Fish Broth, Fishy

Hum. I don’t really know what to make of this tea. I was really exited when David’sTea released a passionfruit tea, but this one tastes too artificial and sweetened. I was hoping the green base would be stronger. Drinking it without knowing, I would think it is a fruit infusion and not a flavoured green tea. It is okay iced for summer, but I would not repurchase.

I really like it! It was part of a Valentine’s day gift and I drank the lot quickly. I like the green base because it is strong, but isn’t overwhelming. The pomegranates add a touch of sweetness. Very good!

Flavors: Grass, Grenadine

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

I don’t really care for the taste :/ . There is too much roiboos in it for my taste. It doesn’t really taste like anything. I purchased it because I wanted a detox tea as part of my resolutions but, I don’t know. It really doesn’t make a good impression on me.

I quite like it. It is a simple jasmine green tea. You should not steep it in boiling water, as it burns the leaves and makes it bitter. I like to blend it with Peppermint Amour, as it makes a good jasmine/Mint green tea.

Flavors: Jasmine

drank Sencha Ashikubo by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

This tea did not taste like Japanese Sencha, but is supposed to taste more buttery and less grassy. I liked it the time I had it, but I would not repurchase because of its high price compared to the degree of satisfaction.

drank Matcha Matsu by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

Once, when it was my first matcha, I really enjoyed it. However, I’ve now had several others, of higher quality and I like this one the least. The powder is a little yellowish and the taste is not as smooth as my other matchas. It is less grassy and a lot more bitter. I would use this one for baking or blending in smoothies, but not really for sipping.

This is a normal straight green tea. It is not fancy and it tastes grassy and perhaps a bit bitter. When I want a simple straight green, I take this one.

This tea is a little weird, but good. It was my first high quality green tea and at first I wasn’t sure about the taste but now, a year later, I enjoy it. It is a shame it is so pricey. The dry leaves smell like alfalfa and it tastes like vegetebles. Interesting flavours.

Flavors: Artichoke, Butter

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
20 tasting notes

aroma: basically what a comforting hug smells like!

taste: a bit dry-textured, as if you were eating a handful of almonds (although people have told me you only feel this way if you’re allergic, so maybe that’s why…). nutty with a touch of sweet apple and cinnamon.

i don’t enjoy this tea straight, but with milk and a bit of honey it is the most comforting tea ever.

Flavors: Almond, Apple, Cinnamon, Honey

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Grand Cru Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
36 tasting notes

I like it better than Matcha Matsu but less than Ceremonial Matcha. It has a light flavour and is quite grassy. I like drinking it iced and hot. The powder is green, but not as vibrant as I like.
