drank Yogi Berry by DAVIDsTEA
251 tasting notes

So it definitely smells like bubblegum. Hubba bubba to be exact.

I got this as an iced tea from DT and it was pretty good. Definitely artificial, but it was nice as it reminded me of my childhood and going to the corner store with all the random change I was able to collect to buy penny candies and hubba bubba.

I wouldn’t buy this, but I’m happy I got to try it.

Iced

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
118 tasting notes

Overboard TTB #10

I wanted to brew something up to throw in my timolino (yes I’m a little strange… I brew tea and then transfer to the timolino rather than use it to brew…) and was looking for something with little to no caffine… This looked like a perfect option.

Upon brewing, a heavy cinnamon scent hit me and I wasn’t too sure anymore… I decided to take a quick sip before transferring to the Timolino just to be in the safe side and unfortunately down the drain it went. I’m not sure if the age of this tea was the issue as it’s got coconut in it and the tea looks like it could be a couple of years old or it’s just the fact that I really, really don’t like it when David’s Tea fills their teas with stevia but unfortunately I just wasn’t a fan which is sad because the ingredients list looks almost perfect for my taste buds (minus the stevia of course).

drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
11 tasting notes

This was one of my first purchases at David’s Tea. Having a true love for the Indian drink, I just couldn’t resist. Sadly I should have known better, as I’ve never been a fan of camomile. I also ended up buying way more of this than I should have—about 75g compared to my typical 25g if I haven’t tried a tea before.

Despite it’s camomile base, this tea has grown on me as I slowly try to deplete my supply. It’s certainly not a go-to, but if I want a herbal tea that isn’t overpoweringly fruity this is a nice option; which was exactly what I was in the mood for tonight.

The camomile really stands out over everything else. There’s a pleasing hint of vanilla as well. Sadly, the mango doesn’t stand out as much as I would like.

I’m curious to try this one as a latte (which was initially my plan for this evening until I realized there was no milk). I attempted it once but failed to use enough tea. Still plenty of this left so I’m sure I’ll get the chance eventually…

drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA
11 tasting notes

Got a to-go cup of this on my way home this afternoon. Of course I foolishly didn’t let this cool down enough and ended up burning my tongue which really impaired my sense of taste.

That being said this is a very nice chocolaty tea—almost like a weak hot chocolate. Definitely picked up on the almonds as well. I suspect this one would be amazing as a latte!

Flavors: Almond, Chocolate

I really like this blend – taste, smell, the lovely pink colour (in some steeps)… I still dislike that herbal teas don’t resteep well :(.After one cup I feel the tension in my body melt away a little bit. Even if it’s not the valerian root and is just a placebo, it works and that is awesome. Waaay more expensive than my Herbaria lemon balm bags but it will be nice to have once in a while to mix it up.

drank Yogi Berry by DAVIDsTEA
1010 tasting notes

All of those crazy rumours about this tea are true. Don’t let the aroma of juicy berries from the dry leaf entice you. Once steeped, this turns into sugar-free fruity bubblegum with OVER 9000 tons of artificial sweetener gumming up the works. The leaves barely even resembled oolong either. How can you even call this tea?

Maddy Barone

I have sample of that in the cupboard. I haven’t read too many high rated tea notes on it. I should try it just so I can say I did.:)

VariaTEA

Thank goodness someone else tastes bubblegum cuz I thought I was going crazy

TeaBrat

DAVIDs TEA has so many horrible creations!

Amariel

AGREED!

Fjellrev

Set the bar ridiculously low, Maddy!

And now I’m relieved that I’m not the only one to get bubblegum from this too. Horrible creation, indeed.

Cavocorax

Oh I totally tasted bubblegum. It got weird really quickly though, once it cooled.

Amariel

I agree, it got really weird when it cooled down. It’s like all the artificialness increased to a horrible ratio. I really wanted to like this one.

This tea is bright and citrusy with a nice ginger burn at the end. Aptly named as well – I am usually buzzing with energy after drinking this. Overall a very pleasant tea which I will absolutely buy again.

I think DavidsTea often gets a bad rap around here for some reason. I find that their teas are consistently delicious – I really don’t understand all the tea snobbery. :\

Now this is what I call a tea. An literal explosion of fruity flavor. With some added rock sugar this tastes like a bowl of fruit loops. Simply sublime.

Simply subLIME. I see what you did there.

drank Mothers little helper by DAVIDsTEA
28 tasting notes

Ew. This tea is called mothers little helper because it is supposed to help you fall to sleep but instead it helped me want to vomit . I had to give this a 51 because I technically did finish it. I feel like there was too many flavours, first I would get camomile, then lemon, then mint, (which wasn’t so bad. until then it became lawn shavings. The aftertaste was even worse than the tea itself.. kind of tasted like vegetable / hot and sour soup. This tea is REALLY weird.

Flavors: Chicken Soup, Grass, Lemon, Mint

Yesterday was point redeeming day, and I’m glad that I waited that long because the store I visited happened to just get Ceremonial Matcha in a few days earlier, so I instantly grabbed it as one of my free ones, plus a bunch of 10-20g amounts of others such as this.

Zen’s Chocolate Mint rooibos is my absolute favourite, but due to their semi-sketchy ridiculous sale combined with USD the other month, I didn’t bother ordering and am now looking for a potential replacement. Will this hit the mark?

I can already tell by the smell in the pouch that it won’t be as flavourful. The mint isn’t as in-your-face. With some 2% milk it’s pretty decent. The base is more prevalent in this one, and although I’m normally not a fan of the taste of rooibos, it really isn’t too bad here. The chocolate, on the other hand, is akin to the note in Read My Lips, unsurprisingly, as this appears to contain the same chocolate chips used in that blend.

Overall, I’m not wild over it and am still eyeing Zen’s if I knew exactly what was going on with that company. I have a couple cups worth left so I should try mixing it with Tisano’s Mint Cacao next time to see if that can amp up the chocolate or mint.

OMGsrsly

They posted some blah blah blah in the forums after we all noticed and were posting about the USD fiasco.

drank Detox (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

The taste is pleasant but nothing really excites me about this blend. I like the juniper taste, but not enough to buy another bag over 10g.

And for the record I do not believe that teas can help with weight loss or whatever most detox teas say they’ll do.

I don’t think I brew this quite right as it was pretty weak. Will try a second brew tomorrow.

I’m not a fan of green tea unless it’s got citrus notes, which this tea has in spades!! The smell is heavenly if you like earl grey. The second I sipped it, I feel like my pupils turned into little hearts because I loved it so much – the flavour profile is absolutely perfect. Zesty and comforting at once. It might just be that it was the first caffeine I’d had all day at 3 pm, but there was way more of a caffeine kick than I usually get with green teas. Will definitely have to buy more!

A giant blast of peppermint, juniper, and menthol.

Although the tea contains other ingredients like apple pieces, they get totally overwhelmed and I didn’t notice their influence on the resulting cup

Great for the sinuses and throat, but it’s pungency means something I would definitely only drink when sick and needing relief

I used 4.1 grams per 12oz mug

This tea never disappointed me. From the smell to the taste,up to the last drop… Yum! (That’s what my taste buds says, I don’t know with you guys…. :-)) Happy drinking, tea lovers!

Pleasantly surprised by this one. I’ve been drinking fruitier teas recently and wasn’t 100% sure I wanted something on the spicier side, but I picked right.

Orange note is much stronger than I expected, and it complements the cinnamon nicely. Overall effect is light, sweet, and spicy. Occasionally you’ll hit a little extra kick at the back of your throat from the chili. Overall, much more dynamic than I was expecting.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange
