THIS IS SOOOO GOOD. If you enjoy the peach drank from the grocery store that has a pile of sugar in it and tastes nothing like actual peach, you’ll love this (I wish I was being sarcastic, but I’m not). Still haven’t tried it hot but iced it is the best thing ever. My only criticism is that it is a little weak.

MILES better than Peaches and Crayons – oops – I mean cream.

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA
101 tasting notes

So straight up front, I love sangria. I don’t, however, love wine. It makes me very sick. This tea helps me drink sangria without feeling sick. Joy!
I’m still deciding whether or not I like the “boozy” component of this tea. I haven’t tried it hot, and I don’t really have much interest in doing so. I know a few reviewers mentioned that this is expensive because it is heavy… well I have good news! It’s also extremely strong, so you can use half of what you’d normally use in an iced tea and still end up with a very flavourful product.
Overall, really excited to have this one iced on the patio!

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
101 tasting notes

On my first try of this tea, I was REALLY unsure. I mean, it smelt delicious, but in a way I thought it was too sweet. After steeping it at home and adjusting amounts, however, I find that this tea is pretty much as magical as Cookie Dough (which I’m still mourning).
Like other reviewers have mentioned, the base on this one is very light. In a way this makes sense – it allows that chocolate/coconut-y/nuttiness to come through very strongly. There is rock sugar in the blend, so I recommend not sweetening it (DT lists the calorie content at 10kcal per cup, so it’s not loaded and certainly no worse than my other chocolatey favourites, Red Velvet Cake and Read my Lips). For some of you, this will be a fantastic replacement for Stormy Night.
When I’m really feeling like a sweet treat, this one makes a fantastic latte as well.

drank Blue Lagoon by DAVIDsTEA

This tea was disappointing. I expected a strong blueberry tea with other notes, but instead it is prominently lemongrass. The liquor is murky and it tastes kind of murky too. Much better iced than hot. Hot, there is a strange chemical flavour that I don’t really care for.

Black tea, mango, pomegranate. Best. Ever.
Great hot or iced. So happy it came back for spring. That is all.

drank Grape Expectations by DAVIDsTEA

This tea has a grape kool-aid flavour to me, but I like it in the best way possible. I’ve been assured that this does not taste like Grape childrens cough syrup (I love Currant Affair, but that is what it tastes like and I loved that taste as a kid).
I prefer this one hot, believe it or not. However, it does make a nice iced tea as well.
Good job, DT!

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

This tea was a pleasant surprise for me. I figured by the name that I’d either love it or hate it. Turns out that it is fantastic. It has a spa-water type of feel to it. The cucumber is present, as is the honeydew. Oddly enough though, and maybe because it is so refreshing, I do get the same feel as mint.

Iced with a splash of milk, it is reminiscent of Mint Julep.

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

Like other reviewers, I was very excited for this tea. I love peach flavoured teas and was hoping this would be another great blending tea for straight greens and oolongs (much like what I use Teavana’s Peach Tranquility for).
The tea tastes far more vanilla-y than I originally anticipated. The mixture of the peach and vanilla almost gives it a play-doh or crayon taste that is extremely unpleasant. I blended this with a straight monkey-picked oolong and it was, unfortunately, terrible. I have also tried the tea iced and was not impressed either.
I dub this tea “Peaches and Crayons”.

drank Marshmallow Macaron by Teavana

This tea gave me a headache, it was so sweet. I had a cup brewed for me in store without anything in it (after smelling it, I figured additional sweeteners were just asking for diabetes). The flavours were certainly interesting, and I give Teavana props for trying to do something completely out of the box. It just wasn’t for me.
If I was to make this at home, I’d use half of the tea.

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
