Recent Tasting Notes
I can’t really describe this tea too well. It’s rich, dark, earthy, and very unique. I’d go so far as to call it manly. (Maybe because my boyfriend loves it and he and his friends misread it one time as “Wild Black Woman”!) It’s kind of like a rich, dark green tea, perhaps?
Personally I prefer lighter, sweeter teas, but occasionally I find this perks me up in the winter time, with its very woodsy feel – reminds me of damp autumn days (which are, by comparison, very nice and warm to Canadian winters!), but other times I find it’s just too rich for me, and I don’t want to have to finish my cup. My boyfriend, as I said, loves it, however.
Oh my gosh, who would have though THIS could happen? This tea is TOO SWEET for me!
I LALALOVE cream of Earl Grey teas – I love Ear Grey so much, and adding that punch of sweetness just makes it heavenly for me. I try any cream of Earl Grey I can get my paws on, and I love them all – bagged or otherwise, I am indifferent.
But THIS! This is not a sweet punch, it is a sugary TAKE-DOWN! I can’t even believe how sweet this is – I bought it on the pure trust in my love for David’s Tea doing GREAT sweet dessert teas regularly and nailing them, and the fact that I already know I love Earl Grey cream/vanilla teas. But… Whoops! What a mistake that was!
I personally do NOT taste much of the Earl Grey in there, and it is just TOO DARN SWEET! Like almost syrupy-sweet. My recommendation would be to check out The Earl’s Garden at David’s Tea and compare the two before you buy – who knows, you may like both! But just… Be careful! ;~;
Well, this one is a conundrum; reading everyone else’s reviews makes me feel like I’m not insane, at least – I cannot taste the lavender.
I got this tea as a Christmas gift from a tea friend who knows I love lavender, but I’ve put off trying to make a pot because, well, I just can’t smell it. You look at it and you can see it’s in there, but the soft (not heavy for once!) scent of coconut is there instead.
Eventually my partner ended up making a pot randomly one day, though, and I asked for a sip to try. I had a really sore throat and usually sweet teas make it worse, but I had no idea what to expect. Well, it was like a soothing touch to my sore throat – lightly sweet, but not overpoweringly so. The lavender has a soothing, calming effect, I believe, but it’s not the reason to buy this tea on its own, I believe. I don’t think I’d have bought this for myself to begin with, but now I’m eyeing it as the levels in my can slowly decline and I wonder, “Oh man, how soon will I have to replace this?!”
Definitely one for me that will probably serve me VERY well come the winter months and cold/flu season hits. It’s soothing, sweet, but light and still hold an element of fruitiness with its coconut touches!
The first time I ever tried this tea was at the David’s tea in whistler and I’ve been in love with it ever since
I decided I’d brew up a cup to write a review for it and im so glad I did
At the beginning of the sip you can taste The apple and cinnamon which gives it almost an apple cider/ apple frittery taste
Then the nuts hit you in the aftertaste leaving you with a sweet nutty taste
In all an amazing tea (im actually going to buy more in 30 minutes)
HEY GUYS LISTEN UP!

New teas! I haven’t bought any tea since before Christmas because we are saving up for a trip, but I finally couldn’t wait any longer and placed a DavidsTea order last week. Placing the order was such a pain – when I confirmed my order I got a message that one or more of my teas was not available in the quantity I wanted. One or more. No indication as to which one – and it cleared my cart! Three times! I finally emailed customer service (I was trying to use the coupon for the free 50g bag of tropicalia) and they sorted everything out. The next problem was that Salted Caramel could only be added to my cart in 100g, not 50! I realllllly didn’t want to order that much, because caramel things to me can be hit or miss. Customer service was good enough to send me only 50g anyway, and 50g of Pink Flamingo! Yay!
Moving on to actual tea-related comments: This is really good! It smells wonderful, and seems well-balanced. It isn’t too sweet, and it has just enough salt to bring out the caramel flavor. I haven’t tried it cold yet, but that’s my next plan! I’ve been drinking it with a splash of milk, but I’ll try it without sometime when I’m home – that way if it is better with milk I have the option of adding some. I don’t have any milk here at work :(
Why must this tea be seasonal? ;_;
I have always enjoyed chai blends. I have always enjoyed pumpkin. Bringing those two loves together beautifully in this tea makes me smile. Makes an excellent latte as well! I usually enjoy it with milk, like most my black teas. So nice to drink after coming in from the cold.
And this one is only from 2 days ago! I’m making progress. I got this in my swap with Kittenna, which worked out perfectly since she hates floral teas (particularly rose) and I love them! I’ve had a few rose congous before, but never one with a green base. Rose pairs pretty well with almost any base in my opinion, so why not a green congou?
I cold brewed this as per usual… I feel like that’s all I’ve been doing recently, but it is summer after all. When it’s really hot out I sometimes put a splash of rosewater in my ice water just for an extra refreshing drink, and that’s exactly what this tastes like! Well not exactly, since the green base is pretty prominent, moreso than I thought it would be. The rose though is so nice, perfectly floral and kind of… crisp. Like almost icy and cooling. It’s a different aspect of rose that I’m not really that familiar with since I don’t often have it iced, but I think I will more often now!
If nothing else this tea looks like swamp water.
I didn’t think I would enjoy this one, since it’s base is rooibos (not a fan over here).
I found it to have a slightly sweet strawberry flavour (like a strawberry candy-artificial). Wish it had more of that flavour. I found it lacked big time in the flavour department. I could only slightly taste the rooibos, which is great for me. I usually can’t get past the rooibos flavour.
Over all I was disappointed in the lack of flavour.
This tea really surprised me. From all the mixed reviews, I expected it to be a letdown. But it’s tasty! And sooo much like real chocolate cake!! The only con is that instead of curbing my craving for the real thing, it intensifies it.
I get warm chocolate cake and even sugary chocolate frosting in each sip! You know the thick, luscious flavor of a decadent three-layer chocolate cake from Outback or Red Lobster? That’s exactly what this tea reminds me of. I’m really astonished that they put all this in a tea!
Big thank you to Kittenna for sharing a sample with me! This tea is spot on, but now I really want a big slice of chocolate cake. I bet the two together would be heaven, mmmm! Drool.
Got this in a swap with Emilie, thanks again!
This smells fantastic, mmm chocolate covered strawberries. The liquor it’s a really pretty deep orange-red.
Really lovely flavor, dark and delicious. Definitely a cocoa taste and not just a “we dumped chocolate syrup in it” taste, which is great. The strawberry mingles really well and I pick it up as a bit of an aftertaste. Yummy!
