Recent Tasting Notes
This is the last of my new teas from my latest DavidsTea run. It has such a distinct scent and flavour. I have never tried anything with lavender before, so I was admittedly a little hesitant about thisinteresting taste experience.
In the end, the lavender mixes very nicely with the stronger coconut and rooibos flavours. There is a lot happening in this cup of tea! The coconut seems to take over the tea nicely in a smooth and refreshing way – I almost expect to crunch down on little white flakes while I’m drinking it. It’s just the right amount of sweet to make it satisfying as a stand-alone treat, without needing to add any milk or sugar (I like my tea straight). I don’t feel as sleepy as everyone else has mentioned, but I am definitely feeling calm and relaxed. I accidentally let it sit for a bit and to my surprise, it even tastes just as good cold.
I don’t know if this is a flavour I would reach for on a regular basis, but it is definitely delicious and would be something I will crave on special occasions. It’s a really nice tea to help finish up writing papers for the evening and unwind before bed.
This tea is definitely full of flavour! Oddly enough, tastes like grapefruit, even though it doesn’t figure among the ingredients; it must be the combination of the orange and hibiscus that give it that particular citrus-like tartness. Steeps to a delightful, deep fuschia. I find that it doesn’t taste very good when very hot, for some reason it seems to bring out different flavours, but once it’s cooled down to a drinkable level it is quite addicting. Not very sweet, but if you like tangy things, this is the tea for you! I can’t wait to try it iced when it warms up a bit more (spring seems to be a bit late in coming this year).
This is such a beautiful tea!! When you get a scoop you get pretty little gold balls that shimmer next to the black tea. The smell is extremely cinammon! So strong that I was worried that it would be to much cinammon, but once again I was fooled.
After the steep, the liquor is a dark dark tea with beautiful shimmer and sparkle, a starry night for sure, it really is pretty, it allowed me to take a moment and admire the tea. The smell is still really strong cinnamon.
The first sip it was surprisingly smooth, and mellow. This is a tea to drink if you need comfort.The cinammon is not spicy at all, it is a sweet cinammon which I love. It is almost a vanilla cinammon flavor to me. This is really good and I love how beautiful this tea is, it would be fun to serve this to friends! This is going to be a keeper for sure.
Hmmm this is an interesting tea, I have not had very many oolong teas but this one is nice. The smell is vegetal with some sweetness, not sure if I really care for the smell or not. brewed it up and it is a nice light gold color.
The smell of the liquor is much stronger now, it almost smells like sweet spinach, yuck. After smelling it I was not sure if I going to like this tea at all. I hesitantly took a sip and was totally surprised.
It was sweet and definately vanilla, yum… and it was buttery, not really vegetal at all just a nice buttery sweet taste. It was very smooth and I drank this very quickly, and was sad that I was at the end of the cup. I did not get any orange at all but if you like sweetness try this, it is pretty darn good.
I honestly expected to dislike this tea… and I was pleasantly surprised!
Ginger is typically a bad add to any sort of food for me, unless I’m sick, so I figured it would overpower my tastebuds and send them into hiding—but it didn’t!
The ginger works really well here, and brings out a sort of orangey, sweet flavour. Maybe it’s the oolong that gets me. The oolong base is nice but I’m having trouble finding it… it’s rather mild. Don’t buy this tea if you want something with a strong oolong flavour.
I have a few other teas with ginger in it but they taste very medicinal to me, and well one of them IS meant specifically to soothe a sore throat…
Anyhow, the finish is nice but quick, with an orange aftertaste, and a slight ginger burn. I didn’t add any sugar either, and it’s definitely sweet enough on it’s own but also has a mild tang to it.
I would buy this tea regardless of any health benefits, so the fact that it’s a fat blocker/metabolism booster is definitely a big bonus.
Overall, a great tea! One I am actually considering buying again, before I use up all my others… and that’s saying something
This tea does strange things to my head. The scent is really potent and blows me away while pouring my cup. From the scent I think I know what’s coming. It takes me back to my early highschool tea days, or to that best cup of Earl Grey I’ve ever had at a cafe by St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. But there is also a bit freshly-squeezed orange hitting my nose along with the bright bergamot.
Bringing the cup up to sip, my tastebuds are still expecting a classic Earl Grey. So it’s a bit of a shock to get what they do, but they like it. The crisp bergamot is delicious but there are also other juicy citrus notes and a light sweetness. None of the astringency of black tea. It all blends together seamlessly.
I wanted something with at least a little caffeine this morning, but it needed to be gentle. This made the perfect Sunday morning tea.
I like it, this tea is dark and intense and actually resembles coffee.
It’s been awhile since i tried a pu er tea, i am generally not very open to these teas even after hearing of all the health benefits they offer. The main reason, they normally taste like farm or rather it just reminds me of being in a barn with decomposing hay or whatever. I drink coffee, I love coffee just as much as tea; and i like to drink it black normally.
This tea, has subtle taste of caramel that comes along with very dark colour…. it looks like coffee! I’d say the second steeping is just as good as the first. It’s very drinkable when it cools down (more so than cold coffee), and is just slightly sweet.
I guess you would say that coffee is bitter and that this should be bitter, but it really doesn’t bother me. What is good also is that I did not taste any chocolate either, not a big fan of trying to use chocolate to make things taste of coffee but here, it doesn’t seem to do much harm
Overall, very drinkable pu er tea.
Ok, disappointed with this one..
Clearly this is not an earl grey, as it pretends to be one. The fruitiness absolutely kills the tea, so much i don’t taste the bergamot anymore. When I read the description i was actually quite interested as perhaps i was more interested as the citrus (lady grey variations) were rather good. This on the other hand is overpowering, the raspberry flavour is actually too intense, and I am not sure whether or not it tastes to be a natural flavouring. I stop at one steeping with this one, as the second one just tastes even worse. Good for those of you who like fruity black teas but certainly not one if you are looking for a drinkable variation on the standard earl grey.
This is a great tea, slightly sad to see it discontinued as now the next replacement for it i think would be the high mountain oolong, which costs like almost twice the price. I love the floral taste of oolong tea’s which to me is my version of a jasmine green tea. So when i saw the name of this tea, right away i knew it was something of interest to try. It’s a rather light oolong tea, and is in fact quite similar to a green tea. The tea unfolds to rather pretty looking big tea leaves still connected to the stem, i found the recommended steep temperature to be way too low for this tea, i think it said something like 80ish degrees. I tried that once and almost got nothing out of it really, the taste was just way too light for me as an oolong tea. Subsequent times, i did a quick wash (10 seconds or so) with fresh boiling water and then filled it up again. The trick however is not to keep it at a high temperature for long as it might burn the leaves and leave a bitter taste, but if you do it right, the floral taste is rather sublime and enjoyable. What’s great about it, is that you don’t need to use much of it as the tea really unfolds quite well and is good for about 3 steepings.
The pear taste is bang on, so much so that it feels slightly artificial. The taste is crisp with a hint of sweetness it is an overall enjoyable tea, and my first ever from David’s Tea. The apple pieces compliment the pear quite well and the flowers adds to overall presentation of the tea. My only real complaint was the quality of the sencha tea used, i found that it contained almost half of twigs (Kukicha) rather than tea leaves which was rather disappointing, to further complicate the matter its hard to steep alone in a cup without a tea bag or a tea press of some sort as the tiny bits of twig just kind of float at the top much like a rooibos tea would. Mostly it was enjoyable but i would not buy it again unless they do something about the tea.
To be quite honest there is nothing quite wrong with this tea, it tastes almost exactly identical to a normal genmaicha. I found the quality of the sencha tea to be subpar aswell, the leaves seemed to be overly crushed (half my tin seems to be of tea dust, coated with matcha). Taste is very much the same as you would get with any rice tea except this one cost a hellava lot more. Not worth the price point for me, just go get some normal rice tea without the matcha; believe me, it tastes the same. Sells for $8.50 per 50g.
Wow, I’ve never logged a note about this tea!
This was actually the first DT tea I ever tried. And my first rooibos. I added it to my first-ever order and I’d like to think it was because the ingredients sounded interesting rather than self-absorption re: the name, but that’s debatable.
Anyway, I don’t like lavender. But I’ve come to realize I pretty much like coconut in tea any time, any place. This tea is floral, but the coconut smooths it out really nicely and the combination is really calming. So last night when I wanted a good bedtime tea I went for this. It was late but I didn’t feel ready to sleep yet I didn’t want more Mother’s Little Helper. This, I find, is the perfect evening tea. Very relaxing, I’m guessing thanks to the lavender. This one is tasty and great at night but I don’t really feel compelled to re-stock often. My tin is almost empty now. I’ll likely get a bit more to keep on hand, though, because it fills a certain niche really well.
This is one of the 3 teas in my regular office lineup. I drink this after a heavy lunch or on those days when I need some calm for my tummy. I love the ginger and citrus notes. I’ve even gotten some of my coworkers trying and buying this tea. When I travel, I usually bring this tea and the Organic Pu’erh Ginger (DavidsTea) to help with digesting the different foods and to curb the travel nausea.
I usually fill a tea bag up with about 3 tsp and use the same tea bag for 3 steepings throughout the day.
