drank Whisky White by DAVIDsTEA

First of all, I need to thank Jenn for sharing some of her Whisky White with me. Thanks Jenn!

This has a strong whisky scent but the flavor of the whisky is very subtle and smooth. I can taste a barely there hint of peach and a nutty background, and the white tea is also distinguishable amid these other flavors. Quite a nice flavored white tea.

I’m so sad this one isn’t available anymore b/c it sounded interesting.

Oooooo! Sounds interesting!

Fully edible, absolute delishous in a cup. It’s a delightful cup of tart happiness. Even my friends who don’t like tea have been “wow’d” by this delishious herbal tea.

Boiling

YUMMY! I have never had such a juicy cup of iced tea before. This is the only way I have drank the tea, and I have yet to be dissapointed. I can’t wait to pick some up again, because my 25g that I bought lasted me less than 24 hours.

drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
60 tasting notes

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers… This tea is not a big hit. I barely taste the oolong, it tastes more like a toss-up of coconut carrot. However, it isn’t awful. I can get passed a hot/cold cup of this easily.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

I wish they had given this a black or maybe rooiobos base. I get the impression those would work much better with carrot!

EarthernChild

I agree, a Ceylon or Yunan base specifically.

Straight tea shouldn’t be this addictive. It has a very creamy flavor, and the smell is like that of theatre popcorn. It took a while for this specific oolong to grow on me.

I like this one strong. The tea taste is unpronounced, most of the spices taking the reign. It’s one of the things I love about this tea. It’s not extremely spicy unless fully steeped.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

OK so this tea looks pretty scary when its steeping – like a bunch of dead spiders in the bottom of your cup…BUT give it a chance because it’s a really solid jasmine green tea!

lol I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought that!

This tea scared me a little with its strong lavender smell, but I actually really enjoyed it. The coconut-rooibos combination is definitely a winner, and I can see myself buying a whole tin of this!

Got this as a sample with my DT order. I loved the peachy smell of it, but I think I’m just not a fan of oolong at all.

I am wondering why I haven’t written about this one yet—it’s absolutely amazing! I tried fake milk oolong thinking it was the real thing and boy was I so wrong. This tea definitely has a lighter, more delicate scent to it. After it has been steeped, you pick up the delicious cream aroma and you taste it too! I really love how smooth this tea goes down. I feel like I am drinking a latte! Why must you be so delicious and so expensive at the same time!

But you can get 4+ steeps out of it, IF you brew it at the right times and temps…

Not so sure about this one, I know everyone all seems to love it but.. Something with the smell and taste is really bugging me… And It is way too sweet for me and i’m only seeing like 2 tiny little piece of green tea in it…:S

Made me realise that I prefer sweet tea with fruit flavor rather then just maple or caramel or chocolate taste… Well I’ll keep that in mind until I find a sweet tea ( not a fruity one) I really like.

I thought it was too sweet too. Though I still enjoyed it. You can probably use it fir mixing with teas that need a touch of sweetness. :)

EmyPouliche

I actually kind of like the taste, but the smell is so strong i’m not able to drink , I gave the rest of my cup to my BF… And now i’m drinking a cup of snow bunny instead. Yummy!!!

drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

The smell of this tea is heavenly. I thought to myself that there was no way that this tea will be terrible. I was a little wrong. This tea wasn’t outright terrible, but very tart. It reminded me of bagged fruit herbal teas more than anything. This was disappointing for me because it was supposed to be a DAVIDsTEA, not supposed to taste like a tea bag.

But anyway, other than that, the flavours come out nicely when I add some agave. Especially when this cools down, it tastes much nicer which tells me that this is worth it as a tart, strong iced tea. I can just tell that people will love it!

I’m indifferent to this tea, I may give it one more go iced before I write this one off.

It tastes like mulled cider! :D Very fruity, very deep red in colour. This will be lovely when it’s all snowy outside.

drank Genmaicha by DAVIDsTEA
658 tasting notes

I had this to-go with the straight tea promo (though I’d argue against it being a straight tea, really!). I don’t think you can go too far wrong with genmaicha, which is why I chose it. It hit the spot, but didn’t taste quite fresh enough. I think I’m spoiled with the Den’s genmaichas which have a really great contrast between sweet sencha and toasty rice. Still, nice, soothing, and smooth.

Amariel

I love genmaicha…it’s a fave of mine…but yeah, I was suprised to see it as a straight tea.

revlisx

Mmm the roasted flavour wins me over

Amariel

Same here. Love the roasted nutty and earthy flavour.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is very spicy. I was expecting something near “Read my lips” but it’s not. The peppermint and the candy canes doesn’t taste much and the spices are the only thing i taste. I don’t know if i’m gonna try again.
The tea blend smells so good, but when you steep it, the sweet smell change a little bit.

205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 0 sec

You must’ve gotten a spicier mix, when I tried this all I tasted was the candycane-ness… guess it depends on the ratio of tea-spice-peppermint, eh?

oh maybe!! i will try again! thanks for the advice! :)

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
46 tasting notes

Hummm….I like that! In french, that tea is called “Douceur de Noël”. That name is perfect since that tea is sweet and creamy. It was my first pu’erh tea. It makes me feel like Christmas holidays even if it’s a “November Rain” day! :)
It’s a tea for those who like chocolate and/or orange teas.

drank Cherry Potion by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

My bf first purchased this as an iced tea. I gave it a sip and thought nothing of it. I got a sample of this from Halloween. The scent is really lovely—something along the lines of a creamy cherry. The taste is also the same too! Upon first sip hot, I feel in love with the smooth, fruit creaminess of this tea. I waited for it to cool down a bit and I didn’t get the same effect. I’ll probably be purchasing in the near future :)

I realized what this tastes like! Like those strawberry campino candies :D

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

OK, I have to get this out there before I go any further. I strongly dislike the smell of this tea, whether in the bag or in the cup. That being said, I have tried it twice now. The first was in a simple no-fuss tea with no additives. Meh. Not a fan.

The second was today, following the DT recipe: 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp of brown sugar and Pumpkin Chai on the stovetop. I had no hope for it turning out well (I should probably mention that I don’t like chai teas).

Verdict? I don’t like the smell. I don’t like chai. So then why do I actually like this?? It tastes nice and pumkin-y, and the milk makes it a creamy fall drink. I actually steeped it for only 4 minutes compared to the suggested 5-10, and will definately steep longer next time. Not a favorite, but I might actually enjoy going through the 25g I bought. Huh.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA

3 words.

Tastes like mini-donuts.

I made mini-donuts into one word to be more dramatic. How on earth have I not tried this tisane before? It’s the EXACT taste of minidonuts, and that is awesome.

aisling of tea

I actually made donuts with this blend once, they were amazing….and pink!

Amariel

Oooh! I really need to try this…it smells so good!

T.C.

LOL I just tried this tonight and thought the same thing! Donuts!

drank Apres Ski (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
658 tasting notes

Yep, yuck. This does smell pretty foul, but I want to like it. I quite like figs! And, I loved Forbidden Fruit. I smell the rotten fruit/garbage that DaisyChubb mentioned, but also a faint hint of the figginess from Forbidden Fruit, so I resolved to fight through that and give it a chance. Unfortunately, I taste the root beer, rum, garbage, and sweet plastic that others have noted. None of these are things I like to drink. I don’t know. I am telling myself I’ll give this another try, but I could only get through a couple tentative sips. The smell is really potent.

revlisx

I agree. The smell was ok at first, but on first sip, I thought to myself, ‘Did they really come out something this terrible?’ I gave it a few more sips until my stomach turned into a knot, then I had to toss it out. Very gross, nothing is appealing about it.

Jessie

Yeah, it’s a really odd choice for them!
