I love DAVIDsTEA, and cherry coke. So when I saw this I was so excited. Luckily I tried a cup before buying a 100g tin like I usually do. I tried it iced and sweetened in store. The first sip was interesting, I could see why the call it cherry cola, but then this very strong musky flavor came into my mouth and took over. I couldn’t even finish a cup of it.

When I’m sick a cup of the skinny soothes my throat, but when I’m looking to drink something before a big meal I make a big jug of it iced and voila no more room for the extra piece of dessert. I prefer it iced and sweetened. Don’t let it steep for too long or the ginger will overpower the tea.

Love this tea, it has the perfect amount of tartness hot, and iced and sweetened it’s even better. Definitely one of my favourite winter teas.

drank Bear Trap by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

This was one of my first DavidsTea teas. I had it in store, iced last summer quite a few times and enjoyed the berry flavours (but mostly the iced part, I have to admit – it was hot last August in Toronto!). Like others, I have found this one can be a bit tart, so I add agave/honey generously to bring out the berry sweetness.

I’ve tried it hot too, but it wasn’t as special hot. If you’re wondering what its like hot and want to try, don’t bother!

I do like this, and will order a bit more later in the year for summer again. Its a good iced tea standard.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA
38 tasting notes

What an intoxicating smell! Sweet and sticky, chocolate liquor richness to the nose. First sip gave me instant floral notes from one of my favourite flavours, rose. There was a definite fruitiness to the tea as well. Then comes that rich, smooth, almost fatty feeling on the tongue from the chocolate. The black tea was almost lost in the flavouring. This tea was slightly sweeter than most to the point if I added some honey or sugar, it would be too sweet. I want to keep on sipping just so I can inhale that rice aroma! Once it starts to cool, the chocolate dies and dulls and the strawberry takes over. Overall this tea was more appealing then I thought it would be!

5 down – 495 to go!

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
561 tasting notes

This tisane has a flavour which is exactly what I would imagine an orange blossom to taste like. Light and sweet orange flavour with a hint of an artificial edge to it. The vanilla comes out and is what give it the sweetness. The rooibos flavour is present and balances out the orange flavour nicely- it is a welcoming taste in the mix, giving a slight contrast. I am not really able to taste the currants in this mix; they may be slightly present near the end of the sip.

As it cools, more of the complexity of the flavour is able to come out. The orange has a fuller taste.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

drank Southern Belle by DAVIDsTEA
6770 tasting notes

Amanda sent me some of this one and it smells really yummy!

Much like a Creamy Peach Smoothie or Shake!

Once infused this is a green-orange-brown type color interrupted by floaties and textures galore! I will chalk it up to the Yogurt chips! This has a black tea base but it could have easily fooled me! It’s extremely weak for a black tea base.

The peach and yogurt pair for a lovely creamy flavor that is for sure! The stevia leaf gives it a bit of sweet but not all that much of an over-all contribution. Nor does the flower ingredients – but that’s ok with me.

The peach flavor is right-on but there are other factors in this tea that doesn’t seem to shine thru much or at all. Having said that – the overall peach-goodness is nice!

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA
30 tasting notes

I ordered this tea online a few months back, I just finished my 50g bag a couple of weeks ago. I have to say, this tea is amazing. It makes a delicious iced tea- i have tried it hot but didn’t fancy it much. This is not THE BEST fruity tea i have bought from Davids tea- and when I go back to a store this Wednesday to stock up I probably wont be repurchasing- but it is up there on the list. If you want a really yummy fruity iced tea- I would suggest Mango Madness instead of this, It may cost more but it tastes much better. It has a nice fruity flavor but is also very tart and not too sweet.
Also, I find that this tea tastes and smells the exact same as strawberry lemonade from Teavana.

drank Happy Kombucha by DAVIDsTEA
6770 tasting notes

Special Thanks to Amanda for this one!

I’ve been called a Hippie (a drug-free one, might I add) on more than one occasion…so…here-goes!

This smells wonderful! Mango/Peach/Orange-like. This infuses to an orange-brown. There are some floaties – but – I can handle it!

Sure…this tastes like the fruits listed – mango, peach, etc…but here’s what I find interesting…perhaps my own little twist that I don’t think anyone has mentioned yet in their tasting notes and if they did and I missed it I am sorry!

This reminds me of a Fruity-Mango Chutney! The texture, the taste, the way it lingers, the fruits IN it! It’s really very nice! It has a GRAND flavor.

I really like this!

It’s grooooovy!

I’ve been on an iced tea kick with this continued heat. Fruity, tart iced teas are so refreshing, and this one is no different. It does take a lot more to make an iced tea, and I’ve already used up the entire 50g bag. I offered some to a friend with dinner last night, explaining it was caffeine free. She was not entirely convinced it would be any good, but after a few sips, she went on to have two more glasses!

To me, this is a perfectly balanced fruity tea. I tried it hot, and didn’t care for it much, because it seemed like drinking hot juice. Iced, and with a touch of sweetener, this is amazing. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more!

drank Caramel Spice by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

I didn’t really like this. I can’t explain why. It didn’t taste like caramel or… well… it didn’t taste like anything really. Some milk and sugar saved it from being a total disaster.

My sister bought this and I took a few sips from her cup.

I’m loving the peppermint and the fact that the chamomile is not too powerful. Also, it’s great that there’s valerian root in here and that you don’t taste it (because frankly, I love valerian but hate the taste). My sister said that it helped her sleep 3 nights in a row. Must buy.

Will edit this log when I manage to purchase some.

drank Matcha Matsu by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

I was accidentally given 50g of this when I asked for 25g.

I do not regret this.

It tastes really really good. And I know it will be even better when I whisk it with a matcha whisk. It was a little bit bitter, but that’s okay. The grassiness of the tea matched my expectations so I’m happy.

Can’t wait to incorporate this in, like, everything I bake. MATSU.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

Let me begin by saying that I don’t really like the color pink. It just makes anything seem less good than what it is.

Now let’s get to the actual logging. This tea tastes great with or without milk. Very little sweetening needed, too. The nuttiness is great but there’s something else about it. The creaminess is just great (yes, it tastes creamy to me).

Oh and I’m loving the pink.

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

Unique, amazing taste. The maple really stands out. Would’ve been nice to have a little more tea in it though (I think I would’ve given it 100). The popcorn taste is also so good. Best consumed when hot.

I had tried this in store a couple of months ago and it was very weak — as in not strong. I saw the potential, however. I bought 25g and have thoroughly enjoyed the 4 cups I had (all in the past day). The fourth time I made it into a latte with a teaspoon of agave.

WAIT WHAAAAT? What have I just consumed? The greatest thing ever? Yes, most definitely. Must buy 200g (there’s a first time for everything).

EDIT: Assuming anyone actually reads my logs, you may have noticed that tea lattes are my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE straight teas and trying new ones but nothing makes me feel better than a great tea latte.

I love this as an iced tea with a bit of salt (weird I know) and some brown sugar. Tastes like caramel kettle corn!

I love Earl Grey and London Fog lattes in moderation (once a month, or else I’ll get tired of the bergamot). This “creamy twist” is no different. It’s great with or without milk! Delicious, although I wouldn’t buy a whole tin (25g has taken me 4 months to nearly finish).

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

Plain and simple: this is a tasty chai but the coco is not prominent. I was really confused because the description says a “strong hint of coconut”, which I didn’t taste at all. Maybe my taste buds were off earlier…

HOWEVER, it is one of the best chais I’ve had at David’s Tea and makes me wants to try more rooibos chais. Also, one of the only rooibos tea blends I like.

Also try it with some steamed milk and honey.

drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

Was looking forward to trying this. Finally tried it in store (TOTD) and enjoyed it, but not enough to purchase it. I may buy it to go when passing by my local DT, but ultimately I wouldn’t purchase a bag of it. The pineapple sweetness tastes way too candied, as others have mentioned, although I really enjoy the fact that it doesn’t ruin the taste of the oolong tea.

Very very good.
Light and floral.
No overpowering taste. The white chocolate is a nice addition. I’m loving this! Must try with milk later or tomorrow.

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

My favorite straight black from DAVIDsTEA (even though I’ve only tried three in store). The light honey flavor mixes in perfectly with the black tea (it’s hard to believe the taste is actually from the tea and there is no added honey). So soothing. No astringency on the first steep (I didn’t notice any). Tasted even better on the third steep.

This is so good. Such a satisfying beverage. I always add a little more (half a teaspoon or a full teaspoon extra) than it says because the earthy flavor comes out more and the banana is perfect. Very well balanced (I’m surprised these flavors work so well together).

And yes, it’s great as a latte.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

This is not a very memorable tea. And I’m so upset because my favorite thing is SALTED CARAMEL and well..anything caramel. Sometimes it’s okay. But it tastes very oily in a way. It’s really hard to explain. Something’s just not right and it has so much potential. It’s even worse as a latte, which is unbelievable. It smells great though.

I sound like I hate it but I don’t. Just disappointed.

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
27 tasting notes

Can you say wow? I don’t get wowed often but this tea does it for me every time. Iced or Hot. And great with milk. I can’t get tired of this one ever since David’s Tea opened. As you drink it, you can make out the chocolate more and more, but the minty-ness is always there. The black tea complements the whole very well. Buy some.
