16 Tasting Notes

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

I like this tea, it’s an easy drink. Only complaint would be that the taste doesn’t live up to the smell. This aroma of this tea is out of this world, but the taste is quite mild. Best brewed strong, and enjoyed clear. I have a hunch that it would make a great floral iced tea, if you’re in to that kind of thing :)

drank Countess Grey by Fortnum & Mason
16 tasting notes

This is certainly one of my favourites.

I was in London a few weeks ago, and went to one of my “tea heavens”—Fortnum & Mason. I picked up this gem and let me tell you, it’s pretty perfect.

It’s slightly citrus-y, complemented by bergamot. The nice thing about this one is that the citrus-bergamot flavoures don’t overpower the tea. Seriously, this is one well balanced blend.

Happy to have it in my cupboard now, so I have a little cup of London every morning!

drank Brazillionaire by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

I typically like nutty teas (was quite the fan of Forever Nuts at a point), but I find this to be a bit too much for me. To be fair, I am the person who picks around the Brazil nuts in the nut mix and goes straight for the cashews, so it’s no surprise I’m not a big fan of this tea. I find the Brazil nut flavour is too strong, and after having it a few times, that it tasty almost…musty.
Overall, not the worst experience, but not a tea I’d drink again.

I pick out the cashews also, they really are the tastiest :)

The perfect peppermint tea. I think I become more relaxed before even tasting it—just smelling this one in my cup puts me at ease. If you’ve ever had fresh peppermint tea, you know this is pretty darn close to the “real thing.”

drank Happy Kombucha by DAVIDsTEA

Love this tea! The fruity flavours are light, and so the tea is not too sweet. Perfect everyday tea, especially nice in the evening. Plus it has the added benefits of Kombucha—a known cold-fighter. Drink up!

drank Stormy Night (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

I found this tea to be quite unremarkable. Besides a mishmash of flavours, cinnamon was the only one I could identify. It tastes similar to DavidsTea’s Forever Nuts, but much weaker. Overall—“meh.”

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Not a bad tea per se, but artificial tasting in my opinion. The pumpkin flavour is nice, but does not taste genuine. The chai component is too weak, however, if brewed strong enough, makes a decent tea latté.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

A slightly spicy, sweet treat. Cinnamon and light cove tastes stand out the most, but are complemented by the sweetness of the sugar crystals in the tea. Overall an easy drink, but not an everyday tea for me.

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA

Love this tea. Minty and slightly chocolate-y, a great, light, afternoon tea. I appreciate that the chocolate notes are not as artificial tasting as other teas claiming to be “chocolate.” Quite addicting. Best taken clear.

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve only ever had this iced, but I really enjoyed it. Tastes mildly fruity, but ends with a slight vanilla flavour. Guayusa was a new experience, found it left me very energetic and feeling great. Would certainly have this tea again.
