8 Tasting Notes

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

Not lovin’ it. I had high hopes, but its coming out tasting a little too artificial. It smelled great, but the flavours don’t translate into anything like a coffee cake taste. A little too birthday cake-y for my liking.

I was searching for the flavour I get from this tea, and my fiance totally hit the nail on the head- marzipan. This tea is pretty darn marzipan-y. I don’t see that as a bad thing, but I know a lot of people don’t really dig that. I enjoyed it after dinner with a slice of fig cake, but I’m not sure I’ll be reaching for it over and over.

drank Gingerbread by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

I’m bummed by this one— I expected to LOVE it, and maybe that is part of the problem. All I can taste is honeybush…which I have an aversion to. I added some almond milk and that help cut the flavour, but it’s still there— reminding me of the dreaded ‘birthday cake’ tea I loathe. I’m virtually getting NO ginger— maybe I will try mixing this with some Super Ginger and I’ll enjoy it more. It’s fine, but I won’t be buying it again.

YUM! This is so darn good and decadent tasting— its like a 10 calorie peppermint hot chocolate! This is one I’m going to be reaching for a lot more as we head towards the holidays.

I tried my first latte last week and got the milk frother a couple days later. Definitely something worth getting!

drank Spiced Fig by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

I’m clearly in the minority here, but I ADORE this tea. Top 5 favourite, ever. It tastes like the holidays—like drinking a clove orange! The natural sweentess is great, and I actually found it did really well on a second steep. The only down side, as others have mentioned, is how heavy it is— I got a 25g bag, and I got about 2 or 3 cups out of it! This makes it pretty darn pricey.

I adore this tea! I love spicy blacks, and this one is just incredibly comforting. It is perfect for chilly and dark days like today!

LOVE!! Tastes like a big warm molasses cookie to me… my favourite of the Fall Collection! This is the one I’ll be stocking up on, without a doubt.

I stocked up on this one too. Every time I brew it, it makes the room smell amazing and it tastes so good!!

I’m glad someone else shares my love because I don’t think this was a very popular tea

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
8 tasting notes

I don’t know… I feel like the only one who doesn’t get it. To me, this tea doesn’t taste like enough of anything— not enough chai, not enough spice, not enough pumpkin. It doesn’t taste bad, it just doesn’t taste like much of anything. Such a bummer, because I SO wanted to love it.
On that note, I’m sitting on about 75g of it— as Fall Teas are leaving stores tomorrow, anyone want to arrange a trade?
