drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
220 tasting notes

Picked up a 26g sampler of this today.

This smells EXACTLY like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

When measuring it out the chocolate curls are obvious,charming and completely enticing.
The Lemon rinds to my utter joy are also prolific and zesty.

Once steeped it’s a rich darker caramel color and smells about the same if a bit subdued.

Tastes earthy and rich but it’s not overpowering but it is the first impression I get.

The smoky texture immediately changes into the aftertaste of a Chocolate Orange on my tongue.

Overall it’s a pleasant tea but it is the taste shadow of the chocolate orange and not the full flavor I tend to hope for in my gimmick teas.

However there are so many glowing reviews on here so I will try it again and fuss with my preparation.
Hints are VERY much welcomed!

Personally I give that tea tons of room to fully infuse. Maybe try something like that.. Or a light rinse if you find the pu-erh too smoky?

I will try that!!

This one didn’t really do it for me either, but I really enjoyed Hot Lips. Have you given it a try yet?

katgolik

Yes and it’s much closer to hitting the mark!!

drank Crème de Menthe by DAVIDsTEA

Pu’erh teas are different. Darker,richer then any other type of tea.Usually smokier and richer in taste and texture.

This tea smells like after eight’s but it doesn’t do the smell justice unfortunately.

I’m looking forward to continuing my experimentation with this type of tea since it is so very different.

I like to add this one to Read My Lips to really kick up the After Eight mint flavour.

katgolik

I’m going to give that a try!! thanks!

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA
220 tasting notes

Kept giving it a chance but it does nothing for me.

It’s nothing more then swamp colored rooibos that’s a bit sweet.

I was really looking forward to it too!!!

Just spent too much money online at DavidsTea to quell the tears!!

Cattibrie

So sorry you didn’t like it. I really loved it and hope it comes back in the summer.

katgolik

it’s available online I had just ordered 100 grams of it! You should check out their site!

Cattibrie

Oh I have ordered a number of times from them but hubby has cut me off from ordering online since I have been to the new store at Bayshore Shopping Centre 6 times since they opened 3 weeks ago. I am trying to decide if I should convince him to relent for Mother’s Day.

katgolik

RELENT RELENT!
Hell I’d give you the rest of my 50 grams if I could!
But it’s been available a lot recently online so maybe just get him to relax and spin some wonderful stories!!!

drank Strawberry Ginger by DAVIDsTEA
220 tasting notes

This is a new fave and now a staple for my tea cupboard..this tea blows my mind with how good it is…

I must formally apologize to ginger for the bad rap I have been giving it over the years.

Every time I sip I mention an expletive followed by awe struck adulation..

yummmmmm.

drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA
220 tasting notes

Tried this quite a few times but it never seemed to be the tea I imagined it would be.I honestly just ended up picking the jellybeans out of the bag and ate them instead of making the tea again.

It was worth a try but I think this was TOO gimmicky as a tea.At the end of the day it’s a sweet rooibos and the jellybeans only come out in flavor if you leave them to dissolve totally in the cup and don’t leave them in the strainer.

Fun concept just doesn’t work in practice.Thanks for the jellybeans though!
