Had this at my parents’ in law place. Surprisingly, yet another David’s classic I have yet to try. I’m not big on mint chocolate or too much chocolate in tea but I figured I’d give it a try. Overal it’s not bad. Rooibos is the most prominent taste, chocolate is more so in the smell and aftertaste and then a hint of mint. I’m glad to have tried it but I’m not crazy about it so I don’t think I’ll purchase it.

Flavors: Rooibos

Boiling 5 min, 45 sec

drank White Nectarine by DAVIDsTEA
14 tasting notes

I’m a huge fan of white tea, and love fruity teas. For some reason, this tea didn’t do it for me. It was always bitter, the taste of the nectarine was more of an apricot or an unsweetened peachy/nectarine. I had a whole tin which was unfortunate, but I won’t be repurchasing this tea. It wasn’t a very good iced tea either.

2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Ginseng Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
222 tasting notes

I drank 16ounces of this with my bbq brisket omelet I made this morning. I find that the leaf used for this this is a higher quality than some other ginseng oolongs I’ve seen/tasted, but at the same time after about 6ounces of this (possibly all ginseng teas) this becomes quite dry and harsh on the throat. I finished the cup because it had a nice taste, but maybe ginseng is meant for smaller quantities. Either way it paired nice with my omelet somehow.

Mmm! The omelet sounds yummy!

I didn’t have high hopes for this tea. It’s a white tea, after all, and I tend to shy away from white and green teas because the flavors are usually quite muted and light. I steeped a bit this evening to enjoy over ice. The flavor was light (as expected) but fruity and sweet. There was a slight bitter aftertaste I’m hoping this tea makes a reappearance this summer. I’d like to buy some to cold steep.

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
14 tasting notes

Tried this for the first time this evening, the flavours dont seem to come out as much as I expected – hinting of apple, and creamy enough. Decent but I wont be a repeat customer of this blend :)

Thanks so much to letting me try out this blend Ost! I am so happy you let me ‘test run’ some teas before making a David’s tea order. You rock!

Me no likey. Less tea, more apple pieces than anything else. I wasn’t expecting a marvelous green, but i still enjoyed my mug. It had that ’David’s Tea flavor’ to it, which to me means apple, almost coconutty butterscotch top note. I liked the subtle corn notes, they were smooth and buttery. It more of a kettle corn feel, rather than movie theater butter and loads of salt. I am so glad I was able to sample this before purchasing a whole 50g. I had been eyeing this blend for a while, because popcorn. Now I know better than to purchase. Not bad, just didn’t live up to my expectations.

Flavors: Apple, Butter, Butterscotch

Ost

Right!? It used to be soooo much better! They had to have changed it or something. :( So disappointing.

drank Mint To Be (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA
2743 tasting notes

Picked this up at David’s recently, it is ok if you like a bit of mint in your tea. I like the way they described it with the coconut. Made it sound like it would be really creamy.

I don’t detect a lot of coconut and the black tea blend is a bit on the light side for me. It was good with some soymilk and a touch of sugar. Eh, this stuff is ok and I will probably finish it but it isn’t knocking me over with being fabulous. ;) Might try it as an iced tea someday, that would be really refreshing.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

College Graduation Party Tea #1
Dear David’s Tea… are you kidding me? The label for this tea says 90c/194f for 4-5 minutes. Anyone who tries these recommendations, just like me, will hate the drink and toss it out. I may be an avid tea drinker, but I try to follow directions… I appologize to all those who tasted such a nasty mess, who suggest 194f for a white/green tea blend with jasmine in it anyways.
I am willing to bet the rights to timetravel that Buddha himself would not approve of this tea.

Now, I don’t mind a fresh sprig or two thrown into a glass of iced tea, but dried mint is not for me. This tea was part of 2014 summer collection, and, since I’d purchased the boxed collection I thought I’d give it a try because I love melon-flavored teas. I was hoping that the mint wouldn’t overpower the melon, but, alas, for me, it did. I gifted this to my mother, and I will make it a point to avoid teas with mint – spearmint, peppermint, field mint, etc. – in future.

I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to try this tea. This black tea blend has been on my wishlist for ages. I finally gave in and picked up 2 ounces while vacationing in San Francisco at the end of April. I was lucky they had any on hand because the tea has been discontinued and is no longer available on the website. This tea was the perfect pick me up this morning. I don’t normally enjoy hot tea, but I’ve been trying to find black tea blends that I’d enjoy hot to serve as a replacement for coffee during the work week. I didn’t think the combination of coconut and raspberry would work well together, but I was (sadly) wrong. I enjoyed it so much that I steeped the leaves three times this morning. This tea would also be quite a lovely, decadent treat at the end of a long day. I added a few drops of liquid stevia to all three cups and a splash of white chocolate mocha creamer to the last (so heavenly). I might have to try to track down more of this tea.

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA
213 tasting notes

This was a pleasant surprise! I’m not a huge lover of the coconut teas from DT (Coconut Oolong being the exception), but I had this iced today and it was pretty good! I think, if I ever have it again, to add some milk – this would be delicious as an iced latte! Also, I have to give it props for being organic!

drank Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

This tea is one of my favorites from last year’s summer collection. It’s great over ice with the tiniest bit of stevia. It also blends well with other herbal teas. The name says it all; it’s just…peachy. Granted, the peach is a bit more candied peach than fresh peach, but I’m okay with that.

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

I’ve never had sangria, so I can’t really speak to how similar/dissimilar this blend tastes to the real thing. Wine just isn’t my thing. However, I have tried a few sangria-inspired tea blends, and I really enjoy this particular blend. I find it’s quite balanced, which can be difficult when hibiscus is thrown into the mix. I tend to steep this on the shorter range of the recommended steep time so that the flavor of the tart hibiscus is softened by the berry and orange notes. It’s quite refreshing over ice and/or as the base of a spritzer. Hello summer!

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE THIS TEA
Okay, so coconut ice cream is one of my favorite kinds of ice cream. My mom gave me some of this to try and, having it cold, my first thought was “mmmm coconut ice cream!”. Then I read the description of it and that’s how the flavor is described! Love how accurate this is.

This is the first coconut tea I have really been a fan of from David’s Tea. Some teas with coconut in them are okay (Gold Rush), but others are just not okay at all (Cocomint Cream). I really love this tea though! I will definitely be stocking up on this so that I can have a permanent stash this summer!

Flavors: Coconut, Cream

Bought a bunch of the sachets off the David’s tea website since they were 40% off. This is actually my moms bday gift in a month and a half but I wanted to make sure that this tea would be the the right kind since she only likes plain black tea- thus I stole one of the 60 sachets :P . Overall it’s a nice black tea- I only steeped it for about a min so it wouldn’t get bitter. I’m sure she’ll like it :).

drank Strawberry Fields by DAVIDsTEA
217 tasting notes

I’m really hoping this is a winner. It smells so yummy like strawberries and cream. I may just surprise myself and add milk. It seems like that kind of tea. Right now this is a fairly new tea but I’m
tired and need caffeine as opposed to a

backlog. Maybe later.
Wow. Bitter.
I even steeped shorter and with less
I NEVER sweeten my tea. I had to add milk. I prefer simple I’m glad I only got 10 grams. Ah no strawberry Fields forever I suspect. With milk it is nice not holy crap nice but a servicable morning latte . basically I had to adulterate it to make it drinkable.

drank Vanilla Rose by DAVIDsTEA

I was really hoping to love this one, it smells great and tastes very good. But after one cup, I couldn’t drink it ever again. Makes me nauseous just thinking about it. It’s the same feeling I get from Forever Nuts by DavidsTea… that cloyingly sweet taste.
