coconut and lemon – i wish i could smell like this tea! (hey davids – a line of tea-themed fragrances??!)
once steeped, it’s a little perfumey with the sweetness of the coconut creating a heavy base, but the lemon really lifts it back up. makes me want to bake a lemon laced coconut cake! mmmm…
i’d say this is almost an herbal with the amount of lemongrass in there, and in that case would benefit from a longer steep than my standard white tea go-to (2 min. @ 185F). still, the coconut lingers on the tongue with all that refreshing lemon up front – really nice!
i’ll definitely be getting some more before the spring collection is gone :)
coconut! apple! banana!
that’s what this tea shouts as you sip, in that order specifically.
so tasty hot, can’t wait to try it iced with just a touch of agave!
really clear, sweet earthy green tea.
excellent multiple steeps
POW that’s ginger!
i can appreciate this bad boy for the herbal qualities, no caffeine to keep me awake when i have a sore throat! yay david!
luckily, i love ginger. if you don’t love ginger, don’t bother with this one. if you don’t MIND ginger, you will learn to love it ;) so cozy yet zingy, with just that hint of heat. awesome.
this one was a bit tart for me, but smells just lovely. the spices really round it out and, for me at least, make it more palatable.
if this didn’t have the green tea it would probably be my go-to night time herbal for the holidays.

a nice amount of that cinnamon heat, lovely on a chilly february afternoon!
the green tea is a perfect base for that hot, sweet flavour
i had a sample of this one a while ago, i thought i reviewed it but i guess not!
i just got another 100g in the mail today, does that say enough?
this is probably one of the most amazing teas i’ve had from David’s since Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble!
tastes JUST like a banana chocolate pie, so delicious.
i feel like i’ve already had something from David’s that’s very similar to this tea…
regardless, it’s a very nice blend. the big chunks of chocolate leave a nice warm aftertaste, and the coconut makes it really smooth. the black tea is a nice base and not strong at all.
another tea to brew in a bag and not a metal strainer, as the coconut oils and chocolate bits gummed up my favourite one (my fault!)
a really tasty treat :)
i was hoping for a nice big, bold BANG of ginger from this one, but it really fell flat.
not much flavour at all, really. just very light and unassuming. like it didn’t care at all.
hahah, i will try blending in a little Ginseng & Ginger from Silk Road, that might up the flavour a bit to more of what i was hoping for. we’ll see!
yummm! this tea is lovely AND beautiful!
i definitely got it just because of the precious chocolate stars (i love anything star shaped), but the fact that it was a nice green tea AND had cinnamon, well, i just couldn’t go wrong.
the cinnamon really does come through nicely with the light green tea. the chocolate is very subtle in the background, but very nice.
i would recommend steeping it in a fine tea bag though, like the DAVIDsTEA drawstring ones, because you do get a bit of a hazy film otherwise, with the chocolate and all, if that bothers you. if not then go crazy with a nice loose steep!
i haven’t tried this as a latte yet, but i am dying to!
this is excellent as an iced tea with (a ton of) sugar, but i would 100% NOT recommend it hot to anyone who has the same battle with hibiscus as i do.
it is so tart and blech tasting when hot, i don’t even want to think about it again to describe it.
a definite NO for me.
iced though (a cold steep), in the summer, it is quite nice.
this is the best best best white tea i’ve had!
definitely beats out davids strawberry rhubarb parfait – more warm spice and barely-there tart hibiscus.
the cinnamon is so lovely and comforting, but you still have that nice light frutiness from the strawberry, and a bit of zing from the hibiscus (basically acting as the rhubarb).
wonderful! definitely one to stock up on, a bit on the expensive side with the white tea and everything, but so so worth it.
thank goodness it’s a permanent online exclusive! <3
sweet! spicy! toasty!
not what i was expecting for a marshmallow tea, but something different altogether, and i really do like it.
the cinnamon and allspice really bring in that campfire element, though that wouldn’t come to mind if i was asked to describe a toasted marshmallow. more chai flavoured to me.
i just realized that there’s no chocolate in this, and i think that’s what i was expecting; for it to be more of a s’mores tea. maybe i’ll play around with blending it with one of davids chocolate teas and see how that goes.
sorry to ramble! it’s a good one!!
this one smells amaaazing!
a bit of a red stain on my white cup from the sprinkles, but i don’t mind.
it does taste rich and cakey, with that white chocolate kiss coming through!
definitely a dark chocolate lingering. i’ll have to try this baby as a latte.
i’ll grab some more if i happen to be near a davids, but i won’t be ordering a ton online.
not really getting much of anything from this one.
it smells pretty earthy, i’m guessing that’s the guayusa, but taste-wise nothing really comes through except a tiny bit of the fennel.
looks pretty as a dry tea! can’t really say much else though.
mmm! i am pleasantly surprised! i have to admit, i wasn’t expecting much (not really liking mates and not really believing fresh orange juice flavour would translate well into tea), but it is good!
it’s late, so i can’t drink the whole cup (only brewed for tasting purposes!), because i’m afraid it would keep me up until 4am, but it’s hard to resist!
i’ll definitely pick up some more next time i’m at a davids, but i’ve got other morning teas to keep me going until then ;)
mmmm, chocolate on chocolate on chocolate on cinnamon…
this has the means to be a favourite. my tea to water ratio was a bit off, so things were a tad watery, but the cinnamon and chocolate did come through.
i’m dying to try this as a stove top latte (similar recipe with the pumpkin chai – steep the tea in (almond) milk on the stove and add brown sugar). i think it will be an incredible start to my early morning classes when it starts to get a bit chillier out!
horrah for chocolate! and davids! :D
i compared this one side by side with last years blend (they added and subtracted some ingredients) and honestly, i couldn’t tell difference.
what joys! i was happily relieved.
another one of davids all-time stars, i think.
might just treat myself to the fancy tin this year ;)
mmmmnh. the flavouring tastes fake. not really much else to say about it than that, unfortunately! :( too bad, i was looking for another fruity oolong.
thats ok though! six more newbies to try tomorrow morning! so watch out!!
(i’m scared. this one is such a dark pink, i think the hibiscus will kill it)
it does smell absolutely amazing, exactly like a strawberry rhubarb pie. delicious.
:( negative. very tart. like biting into a fresh stalk of rhubarb! the strawberry is there, but it’s like an unripened, sour one. too bad. it isn’t crazy overpowering like some of davids teas with hibiscus, but it’s still too much for me.
there is still strawberry rhubarb crumble available as an online exclusive. i’m going to stock up on that one (with it’s warm cinnamon and orange peel), even though it is almost twice the cost per 50g, it’s definitely worth it.
this one steeps up a very pretty light pink cup! a good indicator that the hibiscus shouldn’t be overpowering… and yes! a winner!
there is so much goodness crammed in here though, haha, the hibiscus takes a nice tart back seat with the sour cherries.
it reminds me of goji pop in how it smells like some sort of juicy, fruity, chewy candy! yummm
