drank Carrot Cake by DAVIDsTEA
226 tasting notes

So I decided to try more Oolongs from DT.

Since they had so many cake themed teas this month I ordered this as well.

Can’t really decide on the smell…it doesn’t smell like carrot cake but smells subtly fruity a bit toasty and very earthy.

Is a lovely golden color …blonde even.

Doesn’t taste like carrot cake to me..but isn’t unpleasant either.
It has a bit of tartness and smokiness.
You can taste the apple which I like.

It’s a decent tea but I doubt I would buy it again.I’m going to give it to my bff and fellow tea-hound lindairvine.


I have wanted to try this one because I love oolongs.. but all the terrible reviews makes me think twice about getting 50g worth online =|

I LOVE citrus in anything and everything so I was super excited about DT doing a whole line just for citrus addicts like me!

I never felt like they had enough citrus variety or it just wasn’t strong enough or too strong in a wellness tea kind of way.

This smells just lovely the oil of Tangerine really doing it’s part to come through and tickle me with just a low toasty note that really accents the citrus in an interesting way.

Taste is decent and citrusy but doesn’t blow me away.

The toasty notes are alright but maybe they take away from the citrus experience I wanted.

This will be good green tea cupboard stock until it runs out.
Don’t think I’ll buy again though unless I warm up to it in the future.

drank Chocolate Cake by DAVIDsTEA

So just got my DavidsTea parcel today and my first try will be this interesting tea.

It smells exactly like chocolate ice cream.

It brews thick and foggy a light caramel color with sediment on the top and bottom.

I actually really like this!
it’s like an unsweetened watery hot chocolate or chocolate ice cream melted which is actually quite pleasant and not so hard on the teeth or caloric intake.

It’s not as overwhelming as I thought it would be for a gimmicky tea.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
226 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?


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