drank Snickerdoodle by DAVIDsTEA
24 tasting notes

I have been of late very disappointed in David’s Tea. They have been using more and more sweetener in their teas and I hate it, aka Blue Lagoon and Snickerdoodle. I think they are trying to tap into the younger generation who don’t drink tea and need the sweetness. But it also does not allow for new blends to be added where the tea is just good with nothing in it.

That said, I enjoyed Snickerdoodle on the second steep more because it still had that cinnamon flavour characteristic of the cookie, but none of the artificial sugary sweetness. The first steep was overwhelming and I drank it over a longer period. I was so excited for this tea and now I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Somewhat in the middle I guess.

drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Fantastic. So good. Not an overpowering coconut taste. Subtle enough to taste the tea leaves as well as flavour. Permanent collection for sure. I agree with everyone is saying about the creaminess, you do not need milk in this tea at all. I would recommend it to anyone.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

It’s funny how I always wanted to try this tea and never did until my advent calendar. It looks so good and fun with the gold balls. But when I did try it, it was no good. I’m not sure why, if it was oversteeping, not enough tea, or what but I thought it was too bland for me. I love black teas and I will give this one another try since there are so many people that like it.

drank Creme Brulee by DAVIDsTEA

Loved this tea. It is most definitely going into my permanent collection. Thank you to the advent calendar for getting me to love this. I’m surprised I haven’t had it before. Warm, not over flavorful and no burnt taste. Just like a creme burlee should be.

Had this in my advent calendar. I really enjoyed this chai. I love rooibos in general so this was perfect. The spices were perfect. I didn’t put a lot of tea in my steeper, almost half of the little tin it comes in and I made two cups from it. You can taste the coconut, it’s very subtle, but brings down the tone of the tea and how spicy it is. Considering to put in my permanent collection.

drank Citron Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I am getting sick. Throat hurts, coughing, the whole thing. So I steeped this and it was perfect for my throat. Really helped. It also doesn’t need to be super hot to be good either. Even as it cools down, it’s still nice. I could not love this tea more.

drank Earl Grey by Dilmah

It’s not a terrible bagged earl grey, but it was the only kind of tea they had in Belize while I was away. So naturally I came home with a whole box.

Plain, regular earl grey. Not spectacular. Not terrible. Again, the only tea that was really available. Not that you wanted hot tea in a hot, hot country.

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

Finally my first taste of the famed swamp water. I have wanted to try this for awhile now, so I got a sample, just 20g, to try it. And I love it! The guava is perfect. The colour did throw me off a bit and the water doesn’t steep through my Steeper that well (it gets clogged). But I will definitely be buying a big tin of this for the winter. Perfect warm me up.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

One of my most favourite teas. It suits me perfectly every time. I love rooibos and the taste is perfect. I love how it tastes like a vanilla cupcake without the frosting (or the calories). I cannot give a better review. Warms my heart a little.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec
