The wonderful Cavocorax sent me some of this to try, and so I was very excited to make a cup of it tonight; it’s so rainy and cold out. (Still no snow here, though!) First taste: hnnnnng chocolate. It’s sooo chocolatey and vanilla-y and yes I am making these adjectives because I can.

Definitely one of my favourites. _ I will totally be ordering some with my next DT order~

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
40 tasting notes

This is currently my go-to tea. When I’m heading out to class in the mornings I steep a thermos full of this tea and bring it with me. I keep meaning to try it with a little bit of sweetener, just to play around with the flavour a little, but I’m usually too busy drinking it right away to bother with sweeteners.

I think the other teas in my collection might start getting jealous if I don’t start spreading the love.

Onto Day 5 from DaisyChubb! Of course I am late again. Too much time spent traveling!

Cinnamon teas and I do not always get along. Sometimes they verge into way too spicy territory, not good spicy but tongue-numbing spicy. Cinnamon can either be very good or very, very bad, especially when it has that holiday store artificial kind of smell. You know, like those cinnamon-scented decorative pinecones that make you a bit nauseous. This, however, is the perfect cinnamon tea! It’s just enough hint of spice combined with tasty cloves, and for me the vanilla is really in the forefront making it smooth and creamy.

Plus, it sparkles! How much more perfect can a tea be for 5 Golden Rings? It’s like this tea was made for this swap. Not to mention the totally adorable (and presumably time-consuming) artwork on the package. I love seeing everyone’s creative ideas!

I absolutely love this earl grey. It’s still got a classic taste, but the touch of vanilla is where I fell in love here. It tastes so creamy and I did not add anything to my cup, and it tastes like I did! Yum! I’ve been having so many earl grey tea lattes lately that I kinda forgot about the “true” tea taste if you know what I mean. This cup was so enjoyable! Mmmmm!

Okay. I’m officially on my 3rd cup since I wrote that. Good thing I bought a tin!

Ohhhh me loves this tea. It’s so creamy and buttery and rummy and good. I added some sweetener and a splash of milk, and it just added to the creamy goodness and I think it brought out the commute for me. Nom nom. Will have to add some rum sometime soon! This could be trouble! :)

drank Ceylon Star by DAVIDsTEA
33 tasting notes

Finally got around to trying this tea. I grabbed a bag since it was tea of the month, not really knowing what Ceylon or star anise was. But she showed me the tea and there was a star in it and my tea brain was like, “OMG A STAR SO CUTE” and I bought it haha. Surprisingly, I like it! It’s kind of weird to me, and new, because when I bring my cup to my mouth to take a sip, I smell the licorice scent…but then I don’t really taste it. It’s actually really nice though. It’s nice and creamy, and I can taste the coconut and a bit of white chocolate! It’s strange because all of the flavors are quite subtle, but I (think) I can taste them all. It’s a really nice tea and one I did not expect to enjoy judging by the smell! I’m glad I bought this tea and will enjoy the bag until it’s gone. I may even steep another cup right now. Yum! Weird to me, but yum nonetheless!

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
15 tasting notes

It was a swap from queenoftarts. Thanks for the generous portion! I love good oolong tea thus namegot me ccurious. When I brewed it (just using teapot, not using gaiwan) not the typical way I brew oolong since looking at the tea leaf it seemed there are more other stuffs rather than oolong itself. Also it seemed pretty red – so it got me confused a bit. However when I brewed it it smellef nice. Very mild taste and somewhat fruity scent.

Final verdict: I liked it. It is not for people who wants to try classic oolong but work for people who wants some twist- or simply beginner for oolong tea.

yssah

following you :)

I’m still working on this from DaisyChubb during the 2012 12 Days of Christmas tea exchange. I love this blend of vanilla and mint!

It’s one I hope David’s Tea (or another tea company could offer a similar one, hint hint, guys) lists for sale during the holiday season. This tea puts me in the right mood for the holidays, which I know are in the distance, but I wanted a refreshing mint cuppa this morning and this fit the bill. Love it!

Mint? Hrm, I so didn’t get mint in here. Just unpleasantly strong spices.

Day 5 of 12 Teas of Christmas exchange

I can’t get over how YUMMY this tea smells dry! I can tell this will be an instant fave… or I hope so.

While steeping the aroma is that same spicy and vanilla smell. It reminds me of Christmas in a cup. I love the gorgeous gold balls too.

The taste is a real treat for my tastebuds! Spicy vanilla with a hint of sweetness. Within one sip this has become a fave spicy tea.

YUMS!

I first tried this tea when it was the ‘Tea of the day’ at the downtown location of David’s tea. I was actually in there to get a pack of cookie dough, and I tried Read my lips and let me tell you.. It was the best thing I’ve ever tried. I’ve always loved chocolatey minty things like the ice cream or the peppermint patties! This tea is the best blend of chocolate, mint, and goodness.

One of my favs for sure!

Delicious! Lovely, fruity flavour and works well hot or cold. Not something I’d normally buy for myself.

Yum. I really like this one :) I find it pretty intense all by itself! The flavor got even better once my cup got cooler. Very nice tea! Spot on amaretto in my opinion :)

So this is day 19 of the advent calendar. I own this tea, but the last time I had it, I did not enjoy it. Today I steeped it for about two minutes and put some milk in it. The result? It tasted like a hot chocolate. Yummy.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
69 tasting notes

Confession: I completely forgot I still had a half-full tin of this blend languishing away in my cupboard until I opened up Day . . . Something in the Advent Calendar. I got this about a year ago for my mom, and while it’s not an everyday kind of tea for me (or even an . . . every year kind of tea? oops!) I do enjoy it. Intensely floral and fruity in the best ways possible, this is a light, pleasant tea that shines best on short steeps.

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
69 tasting notes

Woweeeeee! I first tried this tea … two years ago? Three years? I don’t even remember. Much like I really didn’t remember how this tea tasted, just that my impression of it at the time was “No thank you”. I made it to one of the stores over the weekend, and decided what the heck, I’ve been meaning to drink more greens this year, might as well give this another go. It smelled DIVINE in the tin, which helped matters along quickly, and I grabbed 25g. This is toasty, nutty, and subtly sweet. The pineapple isn’t out of place like I feared it would be. Definitely not a tart tea (phew). There’s some light vegetal-grass-green coming out at the back of the sip, but overall, I’m kind of loving this? Is it my cold? Is it making my taste buds change? Or is it just time? Either way, I think I’m going to have to grab more of this! It’s kind of everything I wished Forever Nuts was. Warmly nutty and still tea-like, as opposed to crazy pink, artificial, and weirdly tangy-sour from too much fruit. Shudder.

I tried it as a latte before I left for the week—decided I’d leave all my nut teas home—and oh goodness. So much happiness. I brewed it half in water, half in almond coconut milk, and added in a spoon of honey. Mmmm. And . . . now I’m craving it. Drats.

This was one of my samples with my last David’s order. I haven’t tried it yet, as I’m not fond of green teas. But you’ve made me curious. Perhaps this will be my tea tomorrow.

sweetea

I can’t wait to know what you think of it! I liked it so much more than I thought I would (fruity greens usually spell disaster for me).

It’s good, but all I really taste is cinnamon…maybe some coconut? It just kinda dries my mouth! It’s okay, but not really what I imagined when I smelled it! Meh!

Edit: I didn’t mean to be so hard on this tea. I actually do like it haha! My rating seems a bit to low but I will drink it again and I enjoyed the aroma it left in my house. Who needs candles when tea is around :)

This was my first davidstea ever! I still love it! I add milk and usually have it in the morning, and it is just right. Very delicious and the aroma is just perfectly cookie dough. Great :)

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

One of my very favorites. I even keep my tin out on my counter instead of my tea cupboard because I drink it so much! I love the chocolate with peppermint, it’s a perfect balance in this tea. And the little bit of spiciness is perfect! The smell of this tea just gorgeous! I once had this tea in one of my exams in school and afterward everyone was wondering where the chocolate cake was that they were smelling. Haha! Anyway, lovely tea!
