Pu’erh teas don’t really do it for me, but I also don’t dislike them. I’m quite indifferent, I think. I’ll drink it, especially when it is citrus-y and flavorful like this one. I love how the citrus works with the earthiness of the tea, probably from the licorice root? I don’t know. It’s a very nice blend.

The second steep is considerably better than the first, as well. Much tastier.

Interesting. I like the mango, and I don’t dislike the heat, it’s just a little bit too hot for my taste. I’ve been mixing this 3/4 Mango Diable to 1/4 my fav straight green tea. I need a bit more green to cut back the heat. All in all not bad.

drank Cherry Cola (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
998 tasting notes

Wow, interesting. I knew this was better cold than hot. I’ve hot brewed and then tossed in the fridge before. Last night I put 3 tsp of this tea and 3 tsp of cherry tisane (Wild Cherry – Teaopia) and 4 cups of water in the fridge to steep. I left it there for about 18 hours, and what I got is something between cream soda and cherry Kool-Aid. I think I overdid the cherry it’s almost drowned out the “cola” but I still get the “chemical” taste that makes it seem like soda. I can drink this, it’s not GREAT, but getting close to good.
I changed my rating from 1 to 36. I still think this is really nasty on it’s own, but I’m going to keep tweeking the cold brewing and see if I can find the right ratio.

I could never get this one to taste good. Hope you have better luck than I did

I don’t have much more to say other than, ewwwwwwwww. I can’t wrap my head around fizzy (how do they make it taste fizzy?) tea. I may try this iced at some point but hot, can’t do it. Don’t like it.

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA

What can I say. This is my favorite fruit tea. I love it. It’s perfect. It’s fruity, sweet, tart, with just a wee hint of cinnamon way in the back. I buy 100g tin every time I place an order with DAVIDsTea. That’s how I’m stocking up on tins for my other teas…..

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
73 tasting notes

I bought this tea when it came out and I loved it at first! Then I wanted more and they were always out of stock. Fortunately, I found some at a David’s shop near my house. Now, everytime I’ having this tea, I’m wondering why I wanted it so badly. It’s good, I still drink it, but honestly, I’m still searching for the orange and chocolate tastes. It doesn’t taste what it smells. But you can also don’t care about this fact and just enjoy the tea as it is.

This tea smells and taste like an apple & spices cake. I was a little unsure at start, but it’s actually good, better when hot enough.

Love the addition of rose to this tea! I especially like that flavour when chilled (and I’ve even heard that roses can help boost your mental functioning).

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
998 tasting notes

This is PERFECT for me. It is exactly what I think it should be. I LOVE this tea. It’s earthy, it’s coffee, there is a bit of chocolate? or maybe caramel? something rich hiding in the background. I’m relatively new to the whole world of tea, I may not have the correct vocabulary to describe this, but OMG it’s good comes to mind.

The aroma is nice, cloves and citrus sugar.

It sure looks pretty in my mug. The flavour is mostly sweet, and a little spicy. I feel like I should have this with cookies, and maybe chai.

drank Chocolate Rocket by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

I got a new job the other day and decided to celebrate by treating myself to copious amounts of tea! I ADORE mate (can’t live without those stimulants!) but was worried that the artificially flavoring would make it cloyingly sweet.

Scent: Tootsie rolls + raspberry flavored cough syrup + maple syrup. Yuck… its not very appetizing. Every time I take a sip I’m expecting medicine. Luckily this mate tastes completely different than it smells!

Flavour: its pretty decent, but not the best mate or dessert tea I’ve had. I honestly expected it to be better because of the rave reviews I read. Its smooth, chocolatey and surprisingly thin, with an artificial almond aftertaste that coats your mouth for a while. This would make a good dessert mate though, I’ll try it next time I get the munchies! I can see myself craving this on a cold, rainy morning.

drank Coco-Lemon Thai by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

This almost reminds me of a yellow curry dish that I buy sometimes. There’s no curry, but a lot of the other ingredients in that dish are in here (ginger, lemongrass, coconut). I don’t know if I will reorder this one, but I will certainly be finishing the bag in some capacity. I can imagine this would be delicious iced.

drank Aloha Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
85 tasting notes

This does not taste like a pu’erh, and for me that’s not a bad thing. I like the bg fruit pieces and the softness of the white chocolate. This would probably make a great base for a tropical smoothie. I may or may not reorder this, but I’m certainly not disappointed.

drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1567 tasting notes

At last, DT’s rendition of a coconut oolong. I appreciate how the dry leaf smells like actual coconut. Not artificial at all, and I can tell already that it’s going to be creamy. Coconut milk oolong, anyone?

The first steep was slightly floral with milky undertones. When I first tried this yesterday, I was a little unsure about it. The coconut seemed out of place for some reason. The second steep was better, creamier, and the coconut, warmer.

The second round this afternoon is much better. Again, the first steep is a little floral, a little milky, and the coconut is like true coconut shavings, slightly sweetened. The second steep is super heavenly. Coconut milky and buttery.

I’m loving that paradoxically dainty and rich oolong aroma paired with coconut.

CrowKettle

I like the second steep too. Your description makes me want to drink more of this.

Tealizzy

The second steep sounds fantastic….I need to do that!

OMGsrsly

Hmm. Maybe I’ll bring a mug of this with me tomorrow. :)

Fjellrev

Aww, hope you all have a fun time tomorrow! Sorry I can’t make it. This will be a nice one to sip on while hanging out on the ferry. :)
