drank Apple Strudel by DAVIDsTEA
10 tasting notes

Sweet but not overly so. The apple is definitely prominent, which is nice, but the suggested serving leaves too faint of a taste to my liking. I will try again using more and update this later.
Overall, it’s pleasant.

Okay so round 2. I added more tea before resteeping, and steeped for much longer. Still a very mild flavor. I guess that’s just the nature of this tea.

Flavors: Apple

Preparation
2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA
529 tasting notes

Why was this so terrible ;-;

It smells amazing. Like, amazing. It smells precisely like carrot cake – a big, rich, sweet carrot cake. And it tastes like licorice. Not even like a mellow root beer-y licorice, but that sickly-sweet stuff that gets stuck to the back of your throat and destroys all other flavours.

A world of no.

Flavors: Licorice

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Pom Cider by DAVIDsTEA
10 tasting notes

I had to add this tea, so I hope I did it right!

I got this as a sample from DAVIDsTEA’s Fall line, and am trying it on a fairly frigid morning.
Before it was cool enough to drink, I smelled it and it reminded me of cough syrup. Not a good start.
However, when it had cooled enough, I powered through the smell and tried it. It actually tastes exactly like a Pomegranate Tootsie Pop, which was rather lovely. Every fall I always have a Tootsie Pop in my mouth, so perhaps this will curb my cravings for candy!
It’s definitely a sweeter tea; I don’t add sweetener and prefer more bitter flavors. But if you’ve got a craving for sweets, this just might hit the spot!

You did it right :) Little tea-lovers, they grow up so fast ;-;

I know, right? I was thinking the same thing, De XD

drank Sakura Cherry by DAVIDsTEA

OMG I am sooooooo in love with this tea!! I hope it sticks around forever! The cherry flavor is to die for. Very crisp and pure tasting if that makes any sense. Plus, the green tea leaves are a beautiful deep emerald color and the fragrance coming out of the tea bag-just heavenly. They should bottle that smell and make it into a perfume.

This is a really good traditional tea. I steeped the tea for a minute. Has a light sweet taste that I am quite fond of.

drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA
10 tasting notes

Drinking this after a greasy, heavy dinner and movie. It has an incredibly pleasant scent – it actually smells EXACTLY like carrot cake – but it’s a little sweet to me. You can taste the licorice more than I’d like, but it does have a pleasant aftertaste. It’s a nice dessert tea, but I’m not sure I’d get it again.

I’m not sure about this tea. I like cakey teas in my cupboard because since I found out that I’m diabetic about a year ago, I try to reach for cake teas instead of cake to satisfy that craving. This tea smells spot on, my mouth was watering because I love carrot cake. But the tea itself was kind of a let down. I want more spices, maybe if it was a carrot cake chai I’d be happier. Still, not bad. Just probably won’t grab more.

Daddyselephant

As I finish this tea, the spices come to the forefront, but so does a headache. I’ll be avoiding this one, unfortunately.

Brooke

Nooooo don’t say that. =0

You never know, you might like it! And even if you don’t, you only have a sample size.

drank Maracuja Mango by DAVIDsTEA
1336 tasting notes

Bought this to make it iced but am trying it hot today. It is relatively nice. The mango doesn’t completely drown out the black tea base. It has a nice sweet note to it from the mango.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 minutes.

Flavors: Mango

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

drank Vanilla Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
618 tasting notes

I totally blame this on the tea person making it. No it wasn’t me because I do not put 4 scoops of matcha in an iced matcha. I mean jeezus that was just the worst thing I put in my mouth in a long time.

I shall go back to my matchas from Red Leaf Tea and be happy for the good stuff.
Maybe I will buy some to make at home and try this again…. maybe.

This is infinitely better cold brewed but still not great. Curse you, licorice root!

Nope. noppity nope, nope. This is not for me. Cloying licorice root and spiced carrot. I wanted to like this but it is just not for me.

Fjellrev

Does the carrot actually taste like good carrot or does it have that cellar note?

Colleen

Licorice root? Nooooooooooooooo!!!!! I was so looking forward to this tea but I hate licorice.

Kristal

Ok maybe I won’t buy this one then :| Thanks for the heads up!

VariaTEA

Fjellrev, it actually tasted like carrot which was the one nice part of this but it didn’t help at all in light of all the other badness in here.

Fjellrev

That is so unfortunate.

Kristal

I actually did decide to purchase this tea and I really liked it! Review will be up in just a min. Different strokes for different folks I suppose ;)

VariaTEA

I’m glad you liked it! I always get worried when I say I hated something for this reason because I don’t want others to miss out. I really can’t stand the aftertaste of sweetners whereas some people don’t taste them so I feel like teas like this are more enjoyable to other people.

Kristal

This tea was just on the cusp of being too sweet (I made it as a latte with 4 perfect spoonfuls) so I may exchange 1 perfect spoonful with a different tea. Otherwise I really liked it :)

Am I missing something really obvious? I couldn’t find this tea so I had to put it in myself, but it’s been out for a couple of weeks.

Oh well. I LOVE this tea. It tastes like Red Bull, but not bubbly. It is my go-to energy tea every morning. Right now, I usually brew it and pour it over ice because it is HOT out.

Fjellrev

Crazy, if this is new, I’m going to have to check it out. So out of the loop haha.

Daddyselephant

Same, but it is delicious. I can’t believe I’ve been inactive for two years >.

Fjellrev

Yeah! I’ve been wondering where you’ve been. Great to see you back!

Daddyselephant

Awww thanks <3 I’ve missed y’all!

ashmanra

Welcome back!

This was the other tea of the day today and it was okay. Tasty, but too hibby for me. Coldbrewed kept the hibiscus at bay the other day, though!

Grabbed from the local DT as the tea of the day in my iced tea mug ($1 tea? hell yea) with agave. Sooooo tasty. I always forget I like this one. Light and refreshing.

Blech! Tried plain, with sugar, and sugar with milk. Dumped it. Something in it tastes really off. I don’t know what it is. Ingredients look like it would be good…

Hellooo! I haven’t written a tasting note here i n about a month, I think.

This afternoon my mom and I were both feeling headache-y, and when I decided to brew some tea to hydrate myself, mom asked for some too. She rarely drinks tea, and when she does, she goes for black tea, so when I asked her what she wanted, she just told me she wanted something fruity that didn’t smell too strongly.

Weirdly enough, I don’t have a lot of black fruit blends. Green fruit blends and herbals yes, but those are pretty fragrant. So I pulled out this blossom tea, which I got in a swap at least a year and a half ago.

So how was it?

Not bad, but not that memorable. The instructions on the packet said to brew this with 4 cups of boiling water for 10 (!) minutes. I think I probably did only half that. The result was a slightly leathery, smoky brew with a hint of flowers and peach.

My mom didn’t object, so, mission accomplished!

drank Serenity Now by DAVIDsTEA

I just tried a cup of this today because I felt like trying something new. It tastes of herbs, dried flowers, and fruit. I can taste hibiscus (but it isn’t a sour tisane overall), lavender, chamomile, rose, lavender, and something fruity. I’m not sure what sort of fruit, but it tastes like it belongs in a herbal tisane or granola bar. I like the mild sweetness from the fruit; this makes for a fine iced or hot tea.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Flowers, Fruity, Herbs, Lavender, Rose, Sweet

So I just had to try this, because it is the most ridiculous sounding blend I’ve ever heard of. I was surprised to find it actually sounds good. I can taste fruit (coconut, pineapple, maybe blueberry. I like the coconut in this one. Sometimes I find the coconut David’s Tea uses tastes soapy or overpowers the blend, but this one has a nice balance. The rooibos brings a nice sweetness to balance the acidic fruits. Unfortunately I did not get any jellybeans in my 100g.

Flavors: Coconut, Fruity, Pineapple, Rooibos, Sweet

This is a tasty tisane. But I think it will be better iced. I get a variety of notes, mainly strawberry but perhaps the rhubarb too. I think there is a creamy note too. I think this blend has yogurt in it.

I steeped this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 4 minutes.
