Cooking TTB #11

Oh boy! Another one to add to my eventual DAVIDs tea purchase!

This was so perfect to have on Christmas Eve when I was home alone and making cookie dough. The three most predominant flavors I got were the Brazil nuts, coconut (in taste and smell), and raisin. Those three were so delicious together. I am very grateful to Inkling for sneaking some of this in there for me!

Flavors: Coconut, Nutty, Raisins

Bought this one but then gave it to my Mom, tired some while I was at her house this week. Drank a couple of sips and poured it out, the after taste was just unbearable.

Flavors: Grass, Lemon

I can only drink this one (along with Cold 911) when I’m sick. I find it has a weird taste otherwise – maybe I can only tolerate it when I can’t really taster anything, LOL.

I started to feel congested and not that great and thought that I could get ahead of whatever was brewing and fill up on vitamin C and Echnesia because Chrsitmas was a couple of days away. I got a nice lemon taste and then like a grass taste (what I imagine grass would taste like, its not like I go around eating that :P) , and it stuck with me for the rest of the day no matter what else I drank! I normally try to give everyting at least two or three tries before I consider it a dud but I dont know about that one. I’ll try the Cold 911 next time.

I live by Cold 911 when I’m sick, so hopefully you get a better experience with that one!

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA

I like coconut and I like mint, but I defiantly don’t like them together. I even added a chocoalte honey stick to see if it would appeal to me more….nope. After a couple of sips I poured the mug out. Perhaps I’m missing something but I have no idea why everyone loves this one so much.

Flavors: Coconut, Mint

I like this one, but it’s just an average taste to me – there are so many more options I will try before I go to this one!

Really? Ok i dont feel so bad. Its just not for me, I really liked the coconut but didnt like the mint right after. I will continue my quest for a good mint tea and a good coconut tea, seperate this time lol

raven22

In this case, separate is better, LOL. There are so many mint teas out there, so good luck on that quest! :P

drank Pouchong Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Tried this on a whim today, and I’m not sure how I feel about it – there are other straight oolongs I like better than this one, but it definitely wasn’t a bad cup. Maybe it was the milk addition that made this taste slightly off – if I ever have it again, I’ll definitely have to try it plain. As it stands, though, I have to rate it as I make it.

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I’ve tried other detox teas and they were not drinkable they were so gross. This one had a distinct taste though I can’t put my finger on what it is. This was quite delicious though

Delicious. Spicy and nutty but not too sweet.

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
2 tasting notes

I can quite honestly this is one of the most enjoyable teas I’ve ever experienced.
I say experience because even looking at blend will bring a smile to your face.
This is one of the first loose leaf teas I ever purchased, and although it’s not the best tea on the planet, it’s certainly one of the funnest. This is a cool one to make in front of friends, they’ll ooo and ahh over the actual popcorn in the brew.
Not to mention once brewed this actually tastes like a sweet popcorn, and that’s definitely my cup of tea, delicious.

Over the last month or so, this tea has really been my go to. I never intended on buying this tea, but when I asked for fruity tea (although I do not find this fruity even though the girl from DT told me it was fruity) I purchased a bag of 100 grams to try it out. I went through it in two weeks. After that i went back to DT and bought 500 grams. Whenever i’m feeling sick or have a cold, I add a teaspoon of honey and it makes my throat feel better after just one cup. Even if i’m not sick this is a great tea for after meals or any time of day. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a tea with citrus notes.

Flavors: Citrus, Ginger

I would firstly like to mention, this is absolutely not a bad tea. But it hardly tastes like it’s name. It’s a very nutty tea, but if you happened to miss it forever nuts is a much better version of the same type of flavour in my opinion.
Overall, it’s an enjoyable cup of tea, and I will enjoy finishing my stash, but it’s nothing to write home about.
I tend not to sweeten my tea, but maybe some honey would amp up the “baklava” flavour – just an idea.

drank Bubbie's Baklava by DAVIDsTEA
575 tasting notes

My sis was near a David’s and I got her to pick up a sample size of this for me! I really wish you could buy sample sizes online. Oh well! It helps keep me from buying more tea. I really don’t need more tea. Like, really really.

This tea smells like apple instant oatmeal with a heavy dose of cinnamon. Side note; my mom wanted me to name my daughter cinnamon. She totally didn’t get that it’s a stripper name. Back to the tea… it tastes like cinnamon, apples and almonds. I suppose I could imagine it as baklava, but it mostly tastes like oatmeal. It has a sweetness of it’s own, so I’m able to enjoy it without adding sugar. The mix is pretty heavy on the dried fruit, so for your money I think you are getting more trail mix than tea, but it is tasty. I like it, but I’m not going to run out and stock up either.

I had a relative who thought the name Rainbow Bright was perfect for my daughter. And she was serious.

Dustin

Ha! That is awesome! Was this relative an adult?
I actually have a friend who’s birth name was Rainbow, but she changed it long ago. Her mom was a hippie. Go figure, right?

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
403 tasting notes

A whole bunch of my notes from the past few months have disappeared, including this one. I just found this draft in my e-mail.

I had this tea to go from the store. The scent of dry leaf reminds me of the pumpkin chai – lots of cinnamon. The clerk said that it reminds her of the gingerbread tea from last winter, but I don’t recall having it. I think I oversteeped because the flavor was mostly warm cinnamon with a pumpkin undercurrent and no creaminess to speak of. Tasty, but not cheesecakey. I did not feel the need to buy any for home.

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
582 tasting notes

This smells very spearminty and vanilla-y. There are what look obviously like apple pieces and then a whole ton of little white cubes, which look like sponge pieces but I guess were pineapple? I taste apple, a bit of mint and chamomile – though that isn’t in the listed ingredients. I tried adding cream but that just made it stranger. Another David’s that is not for me. Thanks for the sample, NayLynn!

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
4 tasting notes

I love how the gold balls dissolve into a lovely shimmer in my cup. When you stir the tea, the sparkles swirl around like a tiny cosmos. You have to actively look for the shimmer (it’s subtle), but what a fun tea experience! The taste is typical black, with cloves prominent, and nice hints of sugar, citrus, and vanilla.
