drank Splash! by DAVIDsTEA
65 tasting notes

Dry, this tea smells a bit terrifying – it has a strange chemical, plastic smell to it. I bought a small sample when the salesperson assured me it steeped out better, and she was right. When steeped, the ginger, cardamom, and peppermint shine through some more. There’s a strange bitterness in the back of my mouth after a sip, though, which is weirdly medicinal to me.

Overall, better than I thought it would be, but not something I’ll drink again.

I love this tea! One of my favourites. It has the ability to both energize me, and settle an upset or just too-full stomach at the same time. One of the most beneficial teas in the DAVIDsTEA collection, in my opinion!

I wasn’t initially a fan of this tea but after trying it with a bit of honey and milk, it became one of my favourite teas to drink with milk. I wish David’s Tea would bring it back.

Nope, still not whelmed by this one. I tried double the leaf and I’m still thinking that it is lacking something. Glad that this was my last of the tea. Farewell Yun Cui.

This one isn’t my favourite green. There is nuttiness which I like, but there’s something about it I can’t describe that is turning me off. Others compare it to an oolong but that should mean I love it since I adore them. Maybe something was off in brewing, so I’ll have to try this one again. Not rating, just in case.

Thanks to Uniquity for the generous sample of this tea. :) it was enjoyably fruity though a bit strong on the honeybush. I think red honeybush and rooibos really do better with more desserty or robust flavors. You need a green honeybush or rooibos for a fruity blend. Whatever raspberry there may have been is completely overwhelmed by base. I taste a bit a lemon grass a vague fruitiness, but I wouldn’t be able to tell you what fruit. Still, it’s not bad. I can drink it. And it allows me to appreciate well thought out blends all the more. :)

I’ve yet to meet anyone who can actually taste raspberry in this…I always expect it will get discontinued, but I think it might be one of the ones that people new to tea like to buy. I was certainly “new” when I first bought it!

Mercuryhime

Well, it’s pleasant enough but not worth rebuying, so I guess you’re probably right. :)

Unfortunately, I make a cup of this intending on a long sipping time, allowing me to try it hot and cold… and I’m immediately asked if I want to go out. Oh well….

It is lovely though, light and citrusy. I think I actually prefer the bergamot/orange peel combination here better with green tea than with black. It just is very pleasant with the lighter touch. I think it would taste really nice chilled and sweetened as well — I’m going to have to investigate this another time (though really, I’ll probably still prefer it hot. I’m the type to drink hot tea in the middle of the summer, after all….)

Day 60(!!!) of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. 1.75-ish tsp in a teaball, brewed in a somewhat bigger mug.

Not bad, I must say. I like the orange hint — orange zest always seems to make me happy. The first cup seemed to have a metallic tinge to it — probably from somewhere between the orange and the green tea, but this disappeared by the second cup. Although the flavour weakens, the tea is resteeping well — I’ve been nursing the same teaball-full all afternoon!

I really should invest in another infuser, though — these teas with the looser leaves would be best in a kind of infuser that would give them more room to expand in the cup….

This has a taste of fresh cut grass or seaweed. It is delicate, vibrant green in color. Maybe a bit hard to mix but probably my most favorite Matcha tea.

Being a huge movie night with popcorn fan I couldn’t wait to try this tea.It smells AMAZING.
I really wanted to like it it has all these great elements but the more I drank the less I wanted to drink it.
Tastes like it smells which should have made it ideal.
It had moments of sheer pleasure then moments of just exaggerated weirdness for me.

It was mostly pleasurable but I don’t think I would replenish my stock of this.

It was quite a dividing tea for me.Still not sure if I’ll give it another chance.

very strong and fruity tea for the afternoon, the green rooibos is nice. I might have to get more of this for the summer…

I have to admit after I steeped this (twice) I picked the fruit out and ate it. I’ts kind of nice when your tea can also provide you with a snack. I am fruity, perhaps.

I have eaten the fruit from my tea more than a few times myself. Why waste it, right? :)

Indigobloom

I do that all the time!! esp with my Whisky White :P

I’m glad I’m not the only one! :)

I once ordered a White Macadamia Nut black tea from Stash Tea yrs ago & the nuts tasted bitter to me then. ://

This one came as the result of a swap with Brandy 3392 – thanks Brandy!

Green rooibos is def. a lot better than red in my opinion, much more clean and herbal tasting, less medicine-y, etc. I just wanted to comment that I seem to have the most difficult time spelling “rooibos” – I always have to look it up!

This was steeped for 5 minutes with boiling water. It definitely lives up to the name – VERY fruity! I am getting a lot of mango papaya type flavors, it’s also great that this isn’t too tart and doesn’t have hibiscus in it as far as I can tell. It reminds me of Jardin Sauvage by Lupicia but I think this one might be a little better. I love fruity teas so this really hits the spot. Probably would be great iced as well… i’m digging it!

I haven’t placed an order with David’s Tea for eons but I would get this one again. Great for a non-caffeinated type of moment.

I really like this one, and I have to agree with you that green rooibis is more palatable than red. I’m probably going to get some, as I am sure it will be a great tea in summer, iced.

So I smelt this this morning and decided to take the plunge even though the smell was sort of iffy to me.

I’m very glad I tried it and didn’t let the smell sway my dedication to trying every DavidsTea I can.

This is a truly wonderfully smooth and velvety tea.
It is fussy as proper steeping and measuring out is critical,however true tea perfectionists should be just fine.

I think it makes a very nice balanced morning tea.
I actually quite enjoyed the taste and just it’s over all mellowness.

good for lazy mornings,rainy days and paired with breakfast.

I’m actually surprised that other people really hated or did not care for this tea very much..perhaps they changed the formula because I found it very pleasant.

well as they say..it was my cup of tea.

Tastes like play-doh(…not that i would know what that tastes like or anything.) Definitely not for me. Too nutty.

I got this as part of the Winter Collection (might not be the name?) I’m gonna say I don’t like it.. It does smell like rotten fruit…To me there is nothing enjoyable about this tea.
