This was wonderful with just a touch of sugar! Lots of fruit flavour, and a super nice base. I loved that I definitely did get a lot of both the banana and the grape. This is a tea that is different, but that I think I could drink pretty frequently.

drank S'mores Genmaicha by 52teas
491 tasting notes

This was an interesting tea. I likes the sweetness to the genmaicha, but I am not sure I really got s’mores from it. I love genmaicha, so I enjoyed this tea, but I would enjoy a lot of genmaicha teas. I am going to try to sweeten this a bit more and see if I get a little more s’mores out of it.

VariaTEA

Have your tried Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha? If so, how does it compare?

mewakeling

I haven’t, I only have a couple of 52teas to try and this happened to be in stock at the time. If it helps at all, I really tasted the genmaicha and almost only genmaicha in this. There are sweet undertones, but I also sweetened the tea.

VariaTEA

Interesting. I have both but I only tried the Marshmallow Treat. Perhaps I will do a side by side taste test to see how they compare sometime.

mewakeling

I would be interested to hear how they compare!

drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA
491 tasting notes

Big thanks to Janelle, I had enough for one cup of this. I waited for the perfect evening. The boy is sleeping, our brand new kitten (a terribly pathetic but adorable four week old rescue) has finally fallen asleep on my lap, my show is on, and I am enjoying this tea. God I love this tea! The base is so smooth and it is such a sweet sugar hit. I am so crushed it is not available anymore. I can admit to occasionally stalking DT online hoping in vain that it will come up on clearance.

This was a much enjoyed cup and, who knows one day I might get another. :)

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA
491 tasting notes

This was a very surprising tea. I was prepared not to like it because instinctively, I am not crazy about the smell of bergamot. However, this tea is a very mild version of bergamot. The citrus in the lemon really does wonders to temper it. This will likely never be my favourite white tea, but I am glad I have some of it to try!

I have rediscovered this tea in the last few days. I was all over it during the holiday season, then it slipped after I got back from being away. Even though I now know how much of the licorice root I am tasting, it is still a really nice tea. I both it an David’s White Chocolate Frost but, when I am looking for something truly sweet, this tends to be the cup I reach for. I like the chocolate on the rooibos base, it seems to almost enhance the chocolate flavour.

I feel like I have had a revelation, I get this tea now. It really is not bad. It needs cooler water, a shorter steep, and not to be cold steeped! I am thoroughly enjoying my cup this morning and sorry I ever doubted Davids on this blend!

Fjellrev

You cracked the code! I haven’t tried this yet but if I ever do, I’ll have to remind myself not to cold steep it (since I’m a cold steep monster).

mewakeling

I am too!!! I love to cold steep, but sometimes I have been finding that the regular brew brings out a totally different flavour profile. I forgot to toss bananas foster in to cold steep, on my to do list for tm :)

drank Peach White by The TeaCupany

Tried this again, still a nice white base with fruit hints. Peach is such a strong flavour, that I just wish that there was even more peach to this. Nevertheless, a nice white tea.

This is rapidly becoming my go to for a banana tea. It has a little less nut influence, and a lot more fruit flavours going on, but the banana is certainly the dominant flavour. I find this one does best with a longer steep and a high water temperature. The banana is such a sweet flavour, that there is no need for any additional sweetening.

As I work my way through today’s apparent banana fixation, this one was a good place to pass through!

VariaTEA

I wonder how this would have tasted cold brewed. I got rid of what I had prior to learning the cold brewing method.

mewakeling

I have a bunch I got on sale a while ago, I shall set some up to cold steep tm and we will see what we get!

VariaTEA

haha I shall keep my eye open for that tasting note.

drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
491 tasting notes

I keep coming back to this tea because I like the concept so much. And we may have big tin I got on sale before I really understood what tea was like to finish… It just is not the most flavourful tea. I love Teavanna’s Banana Foster, and I wish this one delivered on the juicy banana in the same way. Instead it always clocks in at watery and uninteresting. Great concept, but mediocre application, in my opinion.
