27 Tasting Notes
Wow. The first sip I took of this was like a caffeine burst in my mouth.
If you like a bold, dark tea that nearly resembles coffee, then you’ll love this one.
It has a great dark chocolately, nutty, raspberry taste. It really does remind me of coffee a lot, but doesn’t have the bad side effects of it. It provides a great burst of energy without that awful crash in the end!
Flavors: Almond, Coffee, Dark Bittersweet, Raspberry
This was exactly what I was looking for. I have so many black teas, chais, and I didn’t need another green. I have a chai rooibos that I LOVE. Rooibos is proving to be one of my favourite types of tea. However, I’ve only had strong fruity or chai flavours of rooibos so far, and I’ve wanted one that has that true woodsy, earthy taste with a subtle sweetness to it.
Jessie’s tea is just EXACTLY that! It has that great woodsy, rooibos flavour, but isn’t too overpowering from the delicious light coconut in the background. Also, I don’t find the lavender to be bad at all. I’ve never drank a lavender tea and I don’t notice anything bad about it in this one!
Beware, it is very very relaxing. The description on the website refers to it as “it’s like having your own personal spa.” They were not over exaggerating! :)
(This tea is great for me as I’m a working college student and often have trouble unwinding at night… So far it has helped a lot! So college students out there, I definitely recommend this to you… and to anyone else who is a rooibos fan!)
Flavors: Coconut, Floral, Vanilla, Wood
I got this tea for one purpose, and that was to mix it with different types of tea to give them a spicy chai boost. So far, I am very very pleased!
I have mixed this so far with my six summits oolong, and glitter and gold (from davidstea).
This tea with Six Summits Oolong makes a wonderful chai oolong blend. I love getting the health benefits of both teas and getting an amazing taste at the same time! It enhanced Glitter and Gold, giving it the extra boost that I needed to enjoy it!
Overall, this tea is great for blending! I have yet to try it on its own, but I think I’ll like it.
Recently got this as a sample from my online order. Well, I don’t know. The tea is beautiful, and it smells lovely. But I didn’t get much taste from this. It’s listed as a “chai” on the DAVIDsTEA website, but this really has no spice to it, in my opinion. I definitely wouldn’t consider it a chai. I suppose people who aren’t huge fans of spice would enjoy it though.
Another thing that turned me off was the list of ingredients… definitely not a healthy tea, either!
EDIT: I steeped the rest of my sample with some of my Organic Pure Chai, and wow… it tastes divine as I’m sipping on it right now! Perhaps before I may have just not steeped it long enough, or maybe the extra pure chai gave it the boost I needed. Either way, I suppose I’ll up the rating a bit :)
I would say this tastes pretty close to a cinnamon heart candy. The cinnamon is very, very strong in it. I also get an appley/orangey taste. This is not something I would consider as a chai normally. Too much cinnamon for me. But, if you’re a fan of the spice, you’d be a fan of this tea for sure.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon
YES!!! This is so awesome. I’ve finally found a black tea that I don’t find to be icky/bitter tasting. I don’t find that it goes bitter as it steeps so I just leave it in the tea ball until I’m done. To me, the longer it steeps, the better it seems to taste.
Overall it’s a delicious pick-me-up!! (Also tastes great with some german rock sugar)
Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint, Sweet
Mmm, smells just like a key lime pie, the taste could be a bit stronger for my liking, but it’s still very nice. I love being able to get my dose of green sencha in a tasty, creamy, sweet limey form! I tried it iced, but to be honest, I like it better hot…
Combined with milk, this tea is DE-VINE. (Upped the rating!)
Flavors: Creamy, Lime, Vegetal
