A favourite of mine. Creamy, sweet, and perfect. Definitely need to get a tin of this. The best part is that you can keep re-steeping it a few times after the initial steep and it’s still good.

Flavors: Creamy

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

I don’t think there’s anyone that doesn’t like this tea (unless you’re allergic :( ). It’s the perfect cup that you’d want to cozy up with on a cool day. Nutty, warm, and slightly sweet. Love that it turns into this beautiful pink color.

There’s a reason why it’s a staple!

Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Nuts, Sweet

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 8 min or more 3 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

drank Vanilla Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I love Chai. I love Vanilla. Put them together? OK!!
I’ve never had this one before and from dry leaf it smelt promising. I brought it with me to school today after happily opening my advent calendar flap. Oversteeping might have had something to do with my experience with this tea but even then so it wasn’t as great tasting. There was Chai, and there was Vanilla. There was also a really strong licorice scent to it and I’m not a fan of licorice so that must have also factored into this test.

One of my classmates described it the best because he said it smelt like cough syrup.

Flavors: Licorice, Vanilla

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 6 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

drank Mango Lassi by DAVIDsTEA
49 tasting notes

When I found out that this one was being pulled from shelves, I made sure I tried whatever I had left of this tea for potential stocking up purposes. This tea is definitely yummy! I had it straight and enjoyed the vanilla and mango scents very much. I can tell it would be great iced but I’m not sure if it’s tin worthy. I have very limited space and even though it’s good. I’m not too big on mangoes in tea.

Flavors: Mango, Vanilla

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 5 tsp 15 OZ / 450 ML

drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA

I might have over steeped this one. Upon first taste I was greeted with a slight bitter kick but I was surprised by it’s immediate honey and rich but smooth taste. It’d be a good staple if I didn’t have a bunch of other Black teas to get through!

Flavors: Honey

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

drank Splash! by DAVIDsTEA
49 tasting notes

The first time I tried this was just under a year ago and this was while I worked at the store for the holidays. My store manager forced me to try this because I was coming down with some sort of cold. I remember smelling it initially and it was so strange and not something I’d go for. I think it was steeped was quite strong (too many leaves to water ratio) and I ended up really disliking it. Also I think it was mostly the ginger taste that put me off more than the sea lettuce.

Fast forward to the end of August, I had developed a liking for ginger this summer (thanks to all the fresh green juices I’ve been having) and I was in the store as a customer. This time I looked at Splash and thought to give it a try again. I bought a 30 gram bag.

I steeped it today (Nov 15) and I used one perfect spoon worth of it in a cup
Turns out, I actually REALLY like it! It’s definitely an acquired taste so unless you dislike ginger and sea greens types then I don’t think you will like this.
I love having hot lemon water during the cooler months, so earlier after my second steep I added half of a lemon to the tea and I found it just perfect, a gingery lemon tea.

Ps: I had it on my desk while I was working and completely forgot I had 1/4 bit of it left so it’s completely cold. I tried it and it tastes and smells like ginger ale (without the sugar + bubbles) to me. Bonus!

A casual tea consumer that typically enjoys plain teas (sencha/genmaicha green tea is a daily must have) and the occasional chai and london fogs but is willing to discover new flavors.

All thanks to DAVIDsTEA, I’ve rediscovered how fun tea consumption can be! So now I’m using Steepster as my own personal tea diary.

I usually try flavored teas straight first and then in a soy/almond latte with a tiny bit of sweetener (agave or honey). If it’s a fruit type tea, then after the initial straight taste test, I’d do it iced with a bit of sweetener.

My Aerolatte is my favorite tea tool. It’s cow printed too!
