104 Tasting Notes

93

I went to DAVIDs today to get the summer collection and my tummy was kind of upset, but I still wanted to try something new. I must say, I made an excellent choice by trying a cup of this. The mint, ginger, and fennel work really well together and it makes a nice sweet minty drink. I will definitely be buying a tin of this once one of my other mint teas runs out! :)

drank Watermelon Mint by DAVIDsTEA
104 tasting notes

When I first got into DAVIDs Tea in 2012, that summer they had a tea called Luscious Watermelon which I just LOVED. That tea has been discontinued, so when I saw that one of the summer collection’s teas was a watermelon one, I was so pumped, and this tea has not disappointed me! I love the taste of the melons with the hint of mint. It’s so refreshing and nice. I also love that this one doesn’t have any hibiscus in it to ruin it :). My one criticism is that you can kind of tell there is a bit of artificial flavouring..but it doesn’t bother me too much. I’m definitely picking up a few tins of this :D!

Flavors: Melon

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA

The summer collection is out! I am trying all of the summer collection and I must say I think this will be my least favourite, which is not surprising because I HATE hibiscus. I thought I would give it a try anyways because all of the other flavours sound delicious, but yeah…tart explosion in a cup, even when you add a bunch of agave. I’ll finish or give away the 25grams but otherwise I am definitely not buying this again.

Preparation
Iced

It tastes just as the name says-like chai tea. I don’t drink too much black tea anymore due to stomach issues but this is nice for those who like chai teas.

drank Splash! by DAVIDsTEA
104 tasting notes

This tea taught me something: Don’t judge a tea based on the first cup if you are unsure about it. Originally, I rated this tea a 65, but since finishing up 25 grams of it, I became accustomed to the seaweed taste and find that it works well with the green tea. Better yet, it’s healthy! I would actually buy this tea again, and will try and avoid rating teas after only 1 cup.

Flavors: Grass, Seaweed

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA

Kind of reminds me of Forever Nuts! I find that this tea tastes better once it has cooled off a bit, otherwise you can’t really taste the fruitiness. I’m going to have to try it iced!

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

Profile

Bio

I used to be a coffee drinker, but it started to hurt my stomach so I switched to tea. A friend of mine introduced me to DAVID’s TEA and I couldn’t stop after that!

How I rate teas goes as following:

1-49: Teas I won’t buy again. Either the taste is discusting to me, or it’s too bland, etc. I’m most likely not even going to finish the tin/bag.

50-59: Teas I wouldn’t buy; I have to force myself to drink the whole cup to not waste it.

60-69: I’ll finish the cup and even the bag/tin, but I wouldn’t buy these teas again. Teas of this rating are “lacking something”.

70-79:Teas that are pretty good and ones I might buy again. Usually these teas are ones I have to be “in the mood for” and drink occasionally.

80-89: Great teas! Ones I will drink several times a week and often have in my stash :).

90-100: Favourite must-have teas! I stock up on these teas all of the time and drink them constantly!

Flavours I love include mint, chamomile, and ginger. I also like when teas have sprinkles or caramel bits in it, but strangely I don’t like some chocolate teas (even though I love chocolate).

Flavours I don’t care for include hibiscus or anything too tart(although If used sparingly, its okay) and overpowering amounts of cinnamon and lemon.

I love black tea but can’t drink too much because my stomach hurts. I can drink it flavoured or plain, but I hate when it’s over-steeped.

Green tea I generally drink straight (or with some mint), and of course hate it when it is over-steeped or when boiling water is poured over the leaves an it gets bitter.

I love rooibos teas but strangely I don’t care for it straight: I like it flavoured and often make lattes using flavoured rooibos blends.

I drink a lot of different kinds of herbal teas. Two staples include chamomile and peppermint-the stronger, the better!
