8 Tasting Notes

Pretty sweet black tea, I find the taste to be very mild, I wish it was tastier. It’s not bitter at all. It’s not my favorite, I like it, but I would not buy it.

I tried Guayusa on a trip in Ecuador back in 2008. I loved it. The DT one seems to be completely different. I do not find it especially energizing, and the taste is bitter (tastes like dirt to me). I did not enjoy it, and won’t be trying it again.

drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

Tastes like caramel-covered apples. It’s quite strong. I do recommend using not too hot water and steeping it for 2 minutes max.

It’s great iced as well.

Pretty sweet tea, not too much green tea, which is a plus for me.

Best jasmine tea I ever tried. I find the jasmine amount to be perfect, since the taste of the black tea is still present.

I do think it is very balanced. It’s a wonderful tea. Expensive, but worth it. My favorite DT black tea of all time!

drank Dragon Pearls by DAVIDsTEA

I find this tea to be very bitter and missing in jasmine. It is quite expensive, and to me, is not worth its price.

I love it so much I bought way too many boxes of Chai concentrate.

It is very spicy, I put a lot of concentrate (2 parts concentrate- 1 part skim milk). It is wonderful.

Makes a fabulous latte.

drank Violet by Kusmi Tea
8 tasting notes

I love this tea! The violet smell and taste isn’t too strong, which is great, because it still tastes like tea. It is not bitter at all, very soft, a little bit sweet.

I drink it in the morning, no sugar, no milk, and it is a pure joy.

I love this spearmint tea iced! It is absolutely delicious. I do recommend adding a little bit of sugar and not steeping it for too long. The spearmint smells wonderful and tastes great.

I tried it as a sample in the Kusmi Tea shop (Montreal) and have been addicted ever since.

Green tea usually makes me sick (heart palpitations) but this one seems to be fine.

The box looks lovely, which counts a lot for me!

Great tea, overall. Reminds me of the Moroccan tea I drank a while ago, with fresh mint.
