drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

This is one of my favourite teas from Davids Tea. I love the smell, and the taste follows through. The combination of spices and lemongrass is unusual, but works really well.

I enjoy this straight up or with a touch of agave.

drank Fired Up Fennel by DAVIDsTEA

This tea has a really nice smell to it. I like fennel and spices, so had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately the chili peppers were a bit too much for me. They BURNED going down. I ended up removing most of the peppers from the dry mix so I can finish the rest of the tea.

It would be a good tea if you really like chili pepper.

The combination of spices and guayusa is great. I love the smell and the taste (with a touch of agave added), and the energy I get from the guayusa is really nice.

I need to try more guayusa blends.

drank Pure Chai (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I won’t rate this one, as I’m not a fan of black tea. I do, however, love all chai spices, so I thought I’d give it a try.

With the addition of lots of sugar and almond milk it was palatable, but reinforced my lack of desire to drink black tea.

drank Licorice Twist by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

It’s a funny thing. I can’t stand black licorice, but I love licorice and anise teas. Add mint, and I’m sold. This was a winner for me, and I’ll enjoy it throughout the winter months. The additional spices help to give it a unique taste, and the smell is great.

I don’t worry about over-steeping this, as it tastes good to me no matter how long it’s steeped for.

Only for licorice tea lovers.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

I really like this one. I’m a huge fan of all of the spices in it, so it was an easy decision to buy this one. I enjoyed it with a touch of agave, but didn’t like it at all when I added some almond milk.

One of the better rooibos teas I’ve tried.

drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. I don’t mind green tea, but I’m not a huge fan, either. Toasted Walnut has a great smell to it, and a nice, delicate taste. I’m not sure how walnutty it really was, but that’s ok, as it tasted good anyway.

The second infusion was even lighter tasting, but still good. I have enough for a few more cups before I have to decide if I’ll replenish.

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

This was the first loose leaf tea I ever purchased (I’m pretty new to the loose leaf world). I LOVED it. I steeped it for a long time, and the creamy, coconutty taste was great. The mint helps give it a fresh taste. I liked it hot, but actually preferred it cool.

I drink this straight up, as I think sweetener would make it sickly sweet.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Spearmint (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

This has a great smell and a nice, crisp taste of mint. I prefer DT’s Peppermint, but the Spearmint is still a great tea. I think I’ll try combining the two.

drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
183 tasting notes

I think I’m in the minority here, as I found this to be a very weak, kind of boring tea. I still have about 20g left, so I’ll definitely be trying this one again, but I’m not holding out much hope. What is everyone else tasting? Are my taste buds broken?

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
