This tea is so-so. What drew me to this in the first place was the intrigue of tasting chocolate in a non-chocolate based tea. I steeped it according to the instructions and after tasting it a few times, it tastes nothing like chocolate. All I taste is coconut. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing, but eh. I’m not a fan of coconut tastes in general. I drank this unsweetened and no milk. It’s good, and it still tastes good after multiple steepings but I’m glad I got a 25g pouch of this because I don’t think I COULD finish a 50g, let’s say.
42 Tasting Notes
It’s an okay blend as far as this goes. You can taste the mango taste, and the chili. It is actually quite spicy when you steep it for a bit. I steeped it for like 30 minutes to experiment if the tea will end up spicy and I don’t taste any bitterness from the green tea from over steeping. The mango flavour kind of dulls out but is still present, and now the tea is spicy. It’s okay I guess, probably good if you’re stuffed up or something. I have not tried it with ice but I will eventually.
I absolutely love this tea. It’s very chocolatey because of the cocoa powder, but the flavour bodes well with the mate and the cinnamon. I feel energized when drinking this tea, and it is nice to drink on a cold day. Overall, I will repurchase again in a 100g tin. If you love mate and love chocolate, this is perfect.
I am actually sad they do not sell this at my Davidstea store anymore because this stuff is the bomb! I don’t really understand that it has such a low rating, because it REALLY tastes like chocolate and bananas, and the rooibos is very subtle. I’m not a fan of this tea hot, however. It’s great as a cold latte, and upon tasting it I remember my time at Disney World buying a chocolate covered banana. :P It’s a decent dessert drink!
This is my comfort tea and go-to tea. You know those days where you don’t want a flowery tea, a sweet tea, or a dessert-like tea? This is the one. I love the toasted rice and the popcorn, the nutty flavour is quite nice and comforting. It’s very light tasting, and goes down well. I like to drink this while I’m eating! Especially sushi, haha. All in all, a great basic tea. Sometimes simple is best.
Funny because I don’t taste much licorice in this tea! I bought this tea when I had a cold and the girls at Davidstea recommended this tea because of the licorice. Truthfully, it didn’t help my cold but I could taste it, that’s for sure. The chamomile is strong, and this tea is SO sweet, I was kind of taken aback that I didn’t need to add anything and it was already sweet on it’s own. Not necessarily a bad thing, I suppose. Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this tea. I don’t hate this tea, but I’m not a big fan either. It’s not horrible by any means.
Out of all the cake teas I’ve had so far from Davidstea, this one is probably the weakest (truthfully, I have not tried Ice Cream cake because it smelled like nothing special). Without adding sugar and milk, this stuff tastes… like blah. Even when I did steep it correctly at the right temperature! All I tasted was black tea, and a subtle chocolate taste. It wasn’t very sweet at all, and I didn’t like how the sprinkles kind of made a residual oily thing in my steeper. Anyways, I have not tried this cold or with milk so I will review it with that when I get the chance. Right now, it’s just boring.
Birthday cake, I love anything that has to do with birthday cake! By itself, I don’t taste the birthday cake AS MUCH, but when I add milk and sweetener, it’s a different story. Hot, it tastes and smells like a yellow/white cake baking in an oven. Cold, it reminds me kind of like birthday cake ice cream. This tea oddly reminds me of the Oh Canada tea, it does have some sort of maple aftertaste, but I prefer this tea much better than Oh Canada. This cake tea works great as a dessert served as a latte, it’s very indulgent and even my little brother who is picky about anything loves this tea!
This is one of my favourite teas of all time! So much so I finished up the 50g, and bought a 100g tin! I’m a huge fan of roses and floral teas, as well as chocolate teas and this was NOT a disappointment at all! It tastes great, hot on it’s own, and I don’t need any additives to pick it up (like milk or sweetening). You can subtly taste the strawberries, too! But I felt like the chocolate and roses were the most dominant flavours of this tea.
For something a bit richer, I drink this hot with some sweetener and milk. It tastes so rich and like a dessert! I love it. Also, it’s great cold (and it then it tastes more like strawberries and roses, I find) with some milk and sweetening as well. Either way, it’s a great blend and it’s one of my favourites from DavidsTea. 100 rating for me, I hope they never stop making love tea #7!
This was not what I expected, it fell flat that’s for sure. There was certainly mint in this tea, but that’s all I could taste. I had this hot, and from the store.
it’s OK as far as this tea goes. I don’t really taste the oolong, and this tea is very fruity. I smelled peaches, but when it steeps you do taste a bit of the mango flavour, and just subtly the pineapple because of the slight tang you feel on your tongue. I’m not a big fan of fruity teas, this one was just okay. I would not purchase it for myself again, but my partner loves this stuff because it reminds him of candy.

I don’t quite understand the concept of the tea – I guess it’s pretty because it does glitter once steeped and ready to drink, but that’s it. It’s quite sweet without any addition of sugar, and I could very just subtly taste a cinnamon taste, if any. I felt like I was just drinking a sugary tea. Not my favourite tea, this one was recommended by the girls at the DavidsTea store I frequent, they usually know what I like but this is a miss. :(
You can definitely taste the pu’erh in this tea, but that’s not a bad thing! This tea is great, actually. I was immediately drawn to it by the name (I love chocolate oranges) and when I smelled it at the store it was divine! So I bought 50g and I’m very happy with it. It’s great cold, first of all, with just a splash of milk – it feels like you’re drinking a chocolate orange candy! No need to add any sweetener! When I drink this hot, I don’t put any milk (though I have tried once, t’was good) and it’s great on it’s own, tastes like dark chocolate with a little bitterness from the orange peels. If you love chocolate blends and also enjoy citrus, this tea is for you. I love it!
It’s minty, and sweet! Although I do like those two together, it wasn’t anything amazing to me. Just tasted like a sweetened mint tea. It reminded me subtly of “Read my Lips” sans chocolate. I’ll finish this tea of course, but it’s not something I’d go and buy again.
The scent of this tea is just DIVINE. It smells JUST like red velvet cake! (Even the cream cheese scent!) This is one of my favourites, and is best served as a dessert for me, especially with a touch of milk and sugar – it’s decadent and rich served that way. I have not yet tasted it cold, but hot is amazing.
I got this tea because the girls at DavidsTea recommended it to me because I like chocolate teas. As promised, there is a strong taste of chocolate when you drink this tea. It’s very minty, it reminds me of a chocolate chip mint ice cream, but in tea form. The mint is very refereshing, and pairs well with the chocolate. I found this tea to be great hot or cold, but I like it best cold actually, especially as a dessert with a bit of sugar and cream. A must for any mint or chocolate fan!
This is one of the teas that tastes exactly how it smells: like maple candy. With that said, it’s an okay tea. I personally felt no need to add more sweetener in it, and this tea is not very overpowering. This is good with some milk in it, too! Seeing as I’m not a huge 100% maple fan, this is not a tea I’d go buy.
When I think of autumn, I don’t think of Starbucks pumpkin lattes, no, I think of DavidsTea pumpkin chai! It’s got a sweet flavour on it’s own so I do not feel the need to add additional sweetening. This tea has got the perfect combination of spices, black tea, and pumpkin flavour! It’s kind of like a pumpkin pie to me. When you add some milk, it’s perfect. This tea is also great hot or cold, though I prefer it hot.
This tea smells FANTASTIC. But I was very underwhelmed by the flavour. All I could taste was coconut, that’s it. I’d imagine this would taste good with liquor and maybe a splash of milk, but I unfortunately did not get to try that at the store. I’m not very fond of coconut so much, so I think I won’t be purchasing this anytime soon.

I find myself reaching for this tea often in my cupboard, amongst the myriad of teas I have. :p Anyways, even though the name implies “chocolate”, I taste no chocolate in this blend at all – I taste more the almond, chicory, and the subtle raspberry (I think that’s what it is) flavour – combining all these together makes for a nutty mate tea, which is really good because I like those types of flavours. This tea actually reminds me of the Coffee Pu’erh tea they have too, it is reminiscent of a slight coffee flavour, but not too much. Perhaps that is just me, but regardless this is a good tea and a staple at my house.
Re-reviewing this again because I don’t think I gave it a good chance last time.
This stuff, while very “herbal” tasting – I got used to it after a while, and I crave this when I am sick. The eucalyptus really soothes your throat, and I feel better for a while. Though I drink this like 10 times a day when I’m sick, it’s okay hot or cold, but it’s best served hot. In comparison to Gail’s Cold Remedy, this one is clearly the most effective and tastier tea to combat a cold. Recommended if you’re sick and need a pick-me-upper to soothe the nasty sore throat.
By far this is my favourite tea from DavidsTea. I am a fan of anything floral, including teas! My favourite floral tea has probably got to be rose flavoured blends though. When I saw this at the store, I didn’t even have to smell it because the name itself drew me in. As for the taste, it is very floral – some might be put off by it because it’s too “perfumey” but I love it! It’s also sweet enough that you do not have to add sweetener, unless you want to of course. I love drinking it hot, and it tastes sinful with a splash of milk and a sweetener of your choice. But without any additives, it is great on it’s own and I would definitely recommend this tea to any person who loves floral teas, especially roses! This one is a staple for sure.
