Recent Tasting Notes
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
