personally when it comes between guayusa and mate i prefer guayusa so much more ! its less of a strong grassy taste which i dont mind at all but the difference is i find guayusa alot more smoother and sweet almost although I still do enjoy mate when roasted it gives off more of a nutty caramel flavor
I drank this in my DAVIDs guayusa bowl with my stainless steel bombilla with no milk or sugar added perfect energy boost without the jitters
Sip down day #3/tea #3
Oh the almond goodness. This smells just like almonds. We’ll see if that’s enough to mask the Rooibos.
Almond-ie goodness. I love when the good flavours over power the Rooibos. It means I can have a yummy cuppa before bed without dissrupting the little sleep I do get.
This tastes just like almond biscotti . So delish!
I received this as one of three samples in my first DAVIDsTEA order. Living in Albany NY, I am not fortunate to live near a DAVIDsTEA. sigh
Dry Smell: strawberry and yogurt. or strawberry ice cream. Either way there is a creamy strawberry smell the moment you open the bag.
Steeped Smell: Creamy strawberry smell is still there, but most of the creaminess is gone and in its place is a tart sweet smell. Whether it is the hibiscus or the rhubarb I am not sure
Taste: HOT At first, it is just tart. But not in a bad way. I’m a big fan of hibiscus, whether it is mixed in to a blend or straight up, hot or iced. I’m not really getting rhubarb though. Once you swallow, the creaminess and the strawberry comes back and lingers in a very nice way. I’m sure if I steeped this for less time the tartness wouldn’t be as prominent. Overall, I would definitely buy some of this and play with it to see how I liked it best. A note on the color: This is the most wonderful deep ruby color. I like my tea stronger, so it almost looks like blood. Which is fitting since I am sitting here after work watching True Blood :) Mmmm, Joe Mangianello, mmmm. cough anywho…
COLD I took the other half of my mug and put a big ice chunk in it and swirled it around to make a quick and dirty iced tea. It is not as intense, but the flavor is still there. The tartness seems to have dissipated a bit, letting that strawberry ice cream flavor shine through. To be honest, I always prefer tea hot, but this would definitely be a nice treat on a hot day, which I hope those are all behind us.
Sip down day #3/tea#2
I haven’t met an oolong that I like yet. Blasphemy I know. But carrot cake is one of myfav baked treats. My local tea house, which is owned by two sisters make and sell TUE very best carrot cake EVER!
The dry notes smell like carrots, cream cheese and spices. Once steeped it smells a little earthy.
This tea is very light in colour and taste. I tastes a mostly earthy taste with a tpuch of sweetness similar to cream cheese icing.
This is decent, it will stay in my cupboard and hopefully my next cup tastes more like delicious carrot cake.
Now I want some real carrot cake :(
So this smells ******* amazing..
Campinos,strawberry yogurt and rhubarb walk into a bar = TEA SMELL
I put a heaping amount in and steep the full 7 minutes as with all DT herbals.Sometimes longer..
Once steeped it gets muskier smelling more of the rhubarb coming through.My room smells absolutely amazing this is one of those rare teas that smell up a whole room while just sitting there cooling..smells better and better as it cools returning to it’s original epic-ness.
2 new yummy teas in one day? I’m very spoiled.
Oh this is yummy..nom nom nom..
It’s a bit of a juicy tart.
Creamy and lovely sweet!
We have a new winner,folks..!
Gotta try this iced.I’m going to be licking my lips an hour after all the tea is gone..I feel like making more this instant!That almost never happens!
I can see that there are marshmallows in this, but the taste just doesn’t say marshmallows to me. I suspect the medium-light cinnamon spice taste overpowers the marshmallows a tad too much for me to experience the marshmallowiness. It’s still delicious though, and the taste reminds me of a warm home on a cold day
I finished this one today. I’m gonna miss it, but I see that Davids has introduced a new collection- so that should ease the pain. If this one comes back next Fall I’ll be sure to buy another little pouch, but for now I’m looking forward to what’s new.
I’m sipping on this while I bake brownies and roast a turkey for a potluck with friends tonight. It’s a lightly spiced blend – the cinnamon and allspice are evident in each mouthful. Paired with the scents coming from my oven, and the brightly colored leaves outside my window, it really feels like Fall.
I’m very surprised how much I’m enjoying this tea. I usually tend toward white, green and/or fruit flavored teas (which this is very much not). I am also not usually the biggest fan of spicy black teas particularly with cinnamon, but this tea just somehow works for me. It’s just so familiar, but I can’t quite put a finger on what it tastes like. My best description is not so much a taste as a feeling: it’s like sitting around the fireplace after shoveling snow on Christmas morning. Cozy, delicious, warmth….mmm…
This tea is perfect because I do have 3 wishes 1) To survive 2)To come out of surgery without any terrible permanent conditions and 3) To not have it too stressful for my hubby and family and friends.
Maybe I’ll have 6 cups just to cover all my bases!
I love floral teas…they are sexy and luscious and steeped in magic.
I had to have and try this jasmine and rose infused black tea.
Smells absolutely and profoundly juicy and rosy with a deep jasmine base.
As usual I steeped less for shorter to avoid the usual bitterness that DT teas have if actually following their official directions for black tea( they should totally fix that!)…learned this the hard way!
Once steeped the jasmine takes over but the rose is still there heavier and muskier smelling.
I am a huge fan of All The Raj…a very very acquired taste that I only seem to appreciate..I need my floral teas totally overwhelming and really sexy this smells totally promising…OH please please be as lovely as you smell!
As for taste….mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Totally floral.A bit fruity and totally lovely.
This is a total winner and a new proud to have addition to my extensive DT black tea collection..
I totally have to try this iced..I really love this the more I sip the more I slip away into floral tea heaven.It hits the tea-spot.
This smells like sour apple sweets which after a hard day at work is just what I needed. So breaking the ingredients down basically this is a green tea with apple pieces which I have tried a few varieties of (some of which I didn’t bother trying).
First sip and you notice the apple before the green tea, it’s sweet with a little sourness and a green natural after taste. It’s pleasant overall but does not have anything particularly special about it to stand out from others that I have tried. Would I buy this again? If I lived locally then sure but I don’t think it’s worth importing it especially.
As for the pie part I think it’s just to make it sound sweeter than it actually is.
I finally managed to get my hands on a few Davids Tea 25g bags and my first cup was of this.
It smells gorgeous (banana and coconut mostly) and it reminds me of a fruit cocktail or luxury trail mix. Since this doesn’t contain any actual tea I don’t count is as one but instead it’s a fruit drink.
Alright so beyond smelling lovely both raw and once brewed the colour itself remains a very light yellow which is a nice novelty.
Taste wise it’s very yummy, each mouthful seems to have a different flavour changing from the banana to the coconut to cocoa (in a dark chocolate sort of taste). I gave a cup of this to my boss and he said it was like drinking a bounty bar. We tried it without added sugar because we frankly feel that it’s sweet enough and very natural tasting. Wonderful to clean the pallet and make a change.
Overall it’s nice but I’m not sure I could drink it all the time. Great to cure those naughty snacking urges.
I received this one from tattooed_tea. I am really starting to wish there were some DAVIDs locations in the states…ok Ohio. Opening up the package the dry leaf reminds me of a chinese black or an ceylon. I was excited to get this one because I have never sampled a nepalese black. Reminds me a little bit of a chinese black because there’s that starchy flavor like baked potato. Pretty smooth and it may have to be added to the permanent collection.
Dry Smell: Blueberry Pie Filling. Then the stevia. The stevia hits the back of your throat and has a weird cooling effect. I’m not sure if I like that or not. I’m not very familiar with stevia, so we will see. I’m not smelling tea yet.
Steeped Smell: Earthy tea smell immediately followed by the blueberry pie filling smell. I can’t just say it smells like blueberries because the smell is somehow sweeter, like jam or preserves, not quite fresh. Which is appropriate since this is named blueberry JAM.
Taste: I’m a major sweet tooth, so even after trying a sip without sweetener, I added my usual teaspoon of honey. There is a definite astringency to this tea. I’ve had this problem with a couple of DAVIDsTEA products, and haven’t yet figured out how to make it disappear. Only when I am swallowing and after do I get any hint of blueberry and sweetness. I will try this iced, but for now, I’m not really a fan of that astringent taste. Anyone have recommendations on how to make a smoother cup or should I expect this from all of their black teas? I haven’t tried their others yet…
When I first tried cranberry pear it was right around christmas time. I still find this tea reminds me of the holiday season anytime I drink it.
It’s a black tea, but there is a high fruit to tea ratio so that’s not the main flavour of the tea. It is honestly a perfect blend of pear, cranberry and a hint of apple. The cranberry is not too tart or overwhelming so you can still taste the delicate pear. It almost combines to its own flavour, cranberry-pear. It’s a very light, delicate tea, and has a wonderful aroma that is an accurate preview of the taste.
Just finished up this one yesterday and I’m disappointed I can’t get more (just like root beer float…). I should have KNOWN to stock up on it at the end of the summer last year since it was one of their seasonal teas, but noooo. Logic and reasoning out the window. I had changed my mind about not liking this tea on its own. It’s good. Really, really good. I still don’t taste real watermelon in it (sorry!), but I love watermelon candy and that tasted exactly like it to me. Maybe because there’s a strong honeydew undertone to it and I’m not a fan of honeydew. Yet I like this tea. Head scratcher.
If this ever becomes available again, I’ll be buying more. Until then…bye-bye, bag of Luscious Watermelon :(
