A solid oolong, with a nice, not overwhelming vanilla flavour. Not overly sweet.

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA

This tea brews into a very dark, almost opaque liquid. It tastes like earthy, well, coffee. Add a little bit of almond milk, and it’s a pretty good replacement for the real deal.

I had a cup of this this afternoon. It has a beautiful red colour, and the heavy flavour of orange oil. Pu’erh is the base flavour, and it’s perfect with the bright oranges.

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I really like this tea – the oolong flavour could be stronger, but it has a great peachy flavour, with apricot and almonds underneath. Would be a good iced tea, if it weren’t -15.

I would use a bit more tea and steep slightly longer than recommended.

I would love to try this iced. It’s pleasantly fruity, with a subtle, lingering heat.

drank Berry Good (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is nice, reminiscent of the company’s Bear Trap with a hint of pu’erh earthiness underneath. I would steep longer than the maximum recommended 7 minutes.

This super hot ginger tea is perfect for cold stormy days when you just don’t want to go outside.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
10 tasting notes

I really enjoy this tea. It’s like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange overlaid with a mild pu’erh. The earthiness and orange are perfect together. The brew is dark, and just slightly reddish brown.

drank Aloha Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA
10 tasting notes

Dry leaves smelled like fish, brewed tea also tasted fishy. Oily film when brewed.

I was really disappointed in this tea. I love pu’erh, and was excited for this new flavour that I got as part of David’s new pu’erh collection. I am glad I didn’t have more than the sample size or I would have returned it.

This tea is terrific. It tastes mildly of mushrooms and disturbed earth. A nice, accessible pu’erh for the collection.
