Dry, this tea smells great, very fruity and yummy scented. Once steeped it really is like a real fruit punch not those artificial ones you buy and is just a little bit tangy which I think is great! If you enjoy tropical fruits and/or fruit punch you’re sure to enjoy this.
34 Tasting Notes
This reminds me of DAVIDsTEA’s banana nut bread from the last autumn collection. And it tastes similar just with the addition of some very nice coconut notes and a hint of the apple and nuttiness. I prefer this much more than the banana nut bread, it’s well balanced and very tasty!
Just went out and bought most of the teas from the Spring collection today. I tried this one first and when I steeped it up, I took literally one sip and I knew right away it was great! I don’t know what it is but I really enjoy oolongs and adding coconut to it is just combining two totally delicious factors. It is light, quite creamy, and not too sweet (and not bitter either!). It is very delicious and the coconut is very nicely present. If you like coconut and oolong I don’t see why you won’t love this. Give it a try :)
This one is as said in the description, light and piney with a little spice and other fun things. I find it very slightly resembles Quangzhou Milk Oolong (A great one if you haven’t tried it!) but I wouldn’t say they are similar, just a few notes the same (because they’re both oolong obviously) This tea has a very
mild gentle calm taste which is what I like sometimes so I quite enjoy it. I sort of agree with Canadianadia where there is an increasing bitterness as it goes on, what I found was there was a little bitterness in the middle of my cup (just slight so it didn’t bother me any) but in the top & bottom it was fine and delicious! I will be buying more of this.
I’ve never had Pu-erh tea before so I figured I’d try this. Dry, it smells amazing, just like those chocolate oranges you get at christmas time. Steeped, it smells really odd and a bit off. The taste however, isn’t bad, it’s not as full bodied as I expected (by comparing it to the dry smell) but it tastes alright and would be nice in the morning or nighttime.
This tea smells and tastes great! Also, it really does have the warming effect it is supposed to have, whether it’s just a placebo on my part is undetermined but its provides me a slight feeling of warmth and haapiness, and it’s just overall a delicious feel good tea. The first smell is a spiced almost fruity gentle fragrance. Steeped, it’s a nice mellow colour and tastes pretty good! I do not like strong spice by any means AT ALL, but this is gently spiced and well blended for a great causal sipping moment. Highly reccommended & caffeine free, great for any time!
Let me start out by saying I was shocked by the sheer price of this tea! At over $6 for 25g I couldn’t believe it, but it sounded interesting and I wanted to try it. Let me tell you, it’s worth EVERY penny of it! This is creamy and buttery with this great high quality oolong mixed in perfectly as well as a tiny hint of floral something or other. No clue how it’s so smooth and creamy because it’s only oolong nothing else, but it is GREAT! Just don’t steep it too long – it’s naturally a slight bit sour/bitter so keep your steeping about 3-5 mins and you’re set for a huge treat! I don’t care if it’s $24 for a 100g tin,I will likely get one! YUM :D
This reminds me of taking shots, or at least how other people do it (I don’t drink so…) What I mean is it tastes really odd, and you are thinking it’s disgusting, but the more you drink the better it is (or seems anyways) It’s got a really odd strong fruit flavour. It’s oneof those ones that is so different and crazy that I may grow to like it (or hate it)… I have 26g to decide, we’ll see. Try at your own risk if you like crazy concoctions.
Read this in the tea book and thought it sounded great! Went in and smelled it and did it ever smell “fun”. It tastes just as good as it smells! It’s a nice, mild, calm, fruity blend. It’s not overwhelming at all and is slightly cooling like they say. Very delicious!
Unlike some other teas, the fruit here being pineapple is definitely present. The pineapple is a little tart, but if you add a little sweetener it’s actually quite yummy! :). The apricot it also there but it’s not very strong, nonetheless it all makes for an interesting combination worth trying!
I find this to be quite strong with cocoa flavours and the bitterness that goes with it. The cinnamon is also quite strong adding to the overall power of the tea. The other flavour are there, but more as a backnote. If I sweeten it a little bit, I don’t mind it, but it wouldn’t be one of my favourites.
This tea is exactly what it sells itself as, minty and creamy! If you’ve ever had those old candies Misty Mints by Allen, that’s what it reminds me of. It’s naturally sweet, minty, and twisted with creamy hints, I find it quite calming and delicious! A keeper :)
Let me start out by saying it is very, VERY hard to get a 100/100 rating out of me (in fact i’ve never given one!) But if any tea deserves it, it’s this one! Wow! This smells great, looks great, and tastes even better. This may be the best tea from David’s and probably the BEST tea i’ve ever had! David’s is constantly introducing new blends and each one seems to have improvement, I hope it keeps going that way :) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
As most have said, this tea is tart. Simple as that. Aside from that it has a nice medley of flavours. I find most (but not all) teas from DAVIDsTEAS containing apple to be a little (or a lot in this case) tart and/or bitter. Just my opinion
Got this as a sample as I have heard of it and was again so I tried it. It’s got an interesting tangy, sweet taste and an interesting green tinge to it. It’s quite strange but with a name like swampwater what can you expect!? I quite like the taste it’s a nice blend with hints of various fruits and the green rooibos is very good. I quite enjoy this blend.
No matter what brand, loose or bagged (unlike every other tea in the world) this has the same taste no matter what. I’ve always enjoyed chamomile. It’s kinda one of those things you like or you don’t, there’s no in between. So I found it just like any other Chamomile… Nice, calming, smooth taste, great for when you want something mild and calm. And wow, do you ever get a lot. Usually when I get my 100g tins they (depending on the weight of the tea) get filled 1/2 to 2/3 full….For this, I got a full tin and a LARGE not the small DAVIDsTEA zipper bag of this still being 100g. So, it’s definately inexpensive and worth buying!
I’m a sucker for anything citrus, so of coure I had to buy a sample of this. It’s quite well blended with the tangerine definately present to a very good level. Not soft but not overwhelming. Overall, a nice tea with a mild profile :)
Wow, DAVIDsTEA usually has really awesome blends, especially new ones. But this, the opposite. It’s terrible! There is barely any mango taste which is completely taken over by the chilli, this tea is so HOT! I don’t know if I just happened to get some with a lot of chillies but it is way to hot and it overpowers the mango….TERRIBLE! Don’t try unless you like El Diablo in your cup!!
Hmm, what a unique taste! I have never tasted anything remotely similar to this. It has quite a nice taste, and the after taste is even better. It’s quite an interesting (for lack of better words) blend and it calm and mild and likely could blend in with whatever you’ve got going on. If you haven’t tried it, buy a sample it’s quite the neat little blend.
As described. This tea has a very funky taste, in a good way though. It kind of a tangy sort of fruity. I find it really quite interesting and like it. And in fact, it does (or seems to anyway) provide the energy it promises. It worked for me from about 7:00 AM to lunch time which is pretty good for one cup, if I would’ve had more there’s no doubt in my mind it would’ve been longer. And the way it works is pretty cool too! The energy doesn’t just smack you in the face…..it comes slowly, yet steadily for quite a few hours with absolutely no jitters and not even close to any crashing after, unlike other energy products. So just don’t drink it before bedtime and you’ve got a great tea that packs a punch.
I’ve only had bagged English Breakfast teas before, so I saw this and said I’ll try it. It’s very similar to the bags just with the higher quality and better flavour that comes with loose leaf. It’s got a deep flavour similar to that of an earl grey with a bit of a twist. But, it’s just a straight black so nothing extremely flavorful, but still good with breakfast or anytime of the day. Alright straight up, but much more enjoyable with a little milk or cream and a spoon of sugar.
Meh, I don’t think this tea is anything special. It tastes like a bit of orange and the lemongrass is nice. However I don’t think I’ll buy anymore
At first taste the chamomile is there, but afterwards everything else comes in. It’s quite calming then however it has a lot of sweetness that flies in aswell but don’t get me wrong still delicious and great before bed!
Combining two great things, what could go wrong? Vanilla and Oolong nicely blended together in a sweet and creamy tea. This one could probably kill my vanilla ice cream cravins despite it being hot and without the brain freezes! Another great tea DAVIDsTEA!
