Recent Tasting Notes
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.
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
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.
Don’t mind this one. I can’t stand the taste of ginger but it’s more heat than flavour in this case, which I can deal with. The licorice root adds a nice sweetness without overpowering. Mint should have been the star with spices as the complimenting flavour rather than the other way around. Overall, not horrible but I won’t be buying more. Note – as it cooled down I started to taste bubblegum? Wasn’t expecting that lol.
Don’t steep this tea for long at all. It’s really nice and light if you only steep it for about two to three minutes. The packaging says to steep for 4-7 but it can turn bitter after three. Also a little goes a long way. Good with or without sugar.
Flavors: Berry, Floral, Fruity, Rose
I’m rather surprised with the reviews. I thought this tea wasn’t that bad actually, it reminded me of raspberry candy, which is slightly artificial but I don’t hate it. I also can’t seem to taste the ‘couch syrup’ taste others are experiencing, maybe because I steeped it for the minimum amount to dilute it a bit more.
All in all, not too bad. It’s nice if you’re someone who enjoys the taste of berries.
Flavors: Berry, Candy, Goji, Raspberry, Sweet
Finally checking off the last flavoured green on the list for project tea wall.
I took forever getting around to this one because I just don’t think it sounds good and every time I’ve opened the tin up for a customer I’ve thought it smelled unpleasant too. The ingredients are a little iffy in my books too…
All in all, I didn’t hate this. I mean, I finished the whole mug which is definitely a good sign. The best part was the juniper. I felt like I could taste it pretty well, and I like juniper a lot. The rest though? It was very wood-y with underlying grassy notes and then a strong lemon flavour which tasted very medicinal to me; neo-citron like, really.
Yeah; not buying into the hype of this one any time soon…
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
SO GOOD! Really does taste like french toast. I don’t find the cardamom overpowering at all either. I added just a bit of milk with the first steep since it already has cane sugar, then for the second I added milk and a tiny bit of sugar. I think maple syrup would be nice as well. The creamy bread taste (never thought I’d get that in a tea lol) with the milk reminds me of a tea latte (without using a huge amount of tea – SCORE!). I used 1.5 perfect spoons and got two decent steeps in a large mug. My favourite from DavidsTea so far!
it is really good, but not in a coconut way. it is very creamy and I added about a tsp and a half of sugar and it was pretty sweet. the after taste has a little bit of coconut but I wish it was more coconut-ey.
Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut, Creamy, Milk
This is quite possibly the BEST tea ever created by David’s. I bought a boatload when it first became available and am so disappointed that it was only available for the spring of 2016. It’s sweet and creamy, fully of flavour and whole raspberries with white chocolate chips. Makes an incredible hot latte with a splash of milk and sugar. I hope they will bring it back again this year!
Looks and smells nice in the tin. Smells even better steeped, just like an After Eight mint. The after-taste is really strange though? Bitter, slighty soapy (maybe just me?), and I saw someone mention dirt. Kind of agree lol. It’s not so bad that I can’t finish a cup but I’m not looking forward to the rest of the sample. It’s a shame because I love mint and you do get that and the chocolate at first, but as soon as it hits the back of my tongue I shiver a bit. I’ll have to try it with some milk and see if that helps with the after-taste. Used 1 perfect spoon for a large mug. The second steeping was a lot better so maybe half a PS next time?
