A nice tea but I prefer straight green over a jasmine green. I think the cup that the cafe gave me was too big for this little tea bag though because it was a bit weak.
46 Tasting Notes
I love a cup of good whole leaf green tea, straight and full-bodied, and this is it.
Here’s to my first time logging this… it’s been a really long time since I’ve drank this tea but I better get on it cause I have a 100g tin in my cupboard!
Anyways, I’m surprised I’m into this tea at all because I am not a fan of Creme Brulee dessert. So for those of you who don’t like this dessert don’t let that turn you off from trying this tea.
I like this tea because of the green rooibos, and all the added health benefits of drinking rooibos. But what’s really beautiful about it is that its like you’re having a sweet, indulgent drink when in reality you’re drinking something that’s very good for you!
I think the most predominant flavours are the caramel and the rooibos. But if you let it steep too long it does not balance well and it’s no good.
It’s definetly a very sweet, desserty like tea that you need to drink only when you’re really in the mood for something sweet. It’s a soft kind of sweet that goes down smooth, rather than a fruity or sour sweet tea, which is very calming. Plus, its caffeine free, so great for an after dinner “dessert” or something warm to cuddle with in bed.
Considering how long it’s been since I’ve had this tea I was very pleased with how much I enjoyed it tonight.
I would also like to add that the aroma of these tea does not compare well to the taste. Its a lot “harsher” and sweet when you smell it, but really tones down while drinking. Also, the tea leaves are very beautiful, especially the hints of bright red.
So I just brewed myself a cup of this for the first time and my whole room smells like chocolate now. Its weird though cause it’s not the same as when someone is making chocolate or baking, its like that artificial chocolate scent you find in cosmetics and what-not. So I’m hoping the tea doesn’t taste like this.
I’ve tried chocolate teas from DavidsTea before (read my lips and love tea #7) and I wasn’t that crazy about them. I decided then I just wasn’t a fan of chocolate teas. However, this tea came with my winter collection package, and I’ve finally taken the jump to try it out.
For taste, the tea is really a let down. All I can taste is the chocolate, and its very artificial tasting. I actually prefer read my lips or love tea #7 because I could taste mint or strawberry in those ones, but in this tea all it is is the chocolate. The spiciness of the peppers comes out as a slight sensation in the throat or on the tongue, but no where in flavour.
I’ll most likely be giving this tea away.
Got a sample of this today and tried it this afternoon.
What can I say? Yum!
This tea reminds me of midsummer night’s dream (by davidstea) because of the fruity taste, but it’s softened by the more dominant taste of the green tea… and I love the taste of green tea! The black tea taste hangs out somewhere behind these too.
This blend is going to be perfect for mornings/afternoons, especially when I’m in one of those moods where I can’t decide if I want black or green or fruit… all three! :)
One of my favourite bedtime teas. I’ve had this tea for awhile and drink it occasionally. I’m not sure if its really supposed to work many wonders on your skin but, what the heck, its tasty. :)
I’ve had this a few times but I guess I haven’t logged it yet. Anyways, here’s to a cup of snow bunny in the morning!
I got this tea in the winter collection and I think its my favourite, aside from alpine punch.
I can taste the nuts and the banana and it gives a pleasant taste of banana bread or something similar. The downfall of this tea is the black tea – I really wish the flavour of the black tea would come out more, but it falls short next to the nutty taste.
I think the aroma of this tea is half of it too.
Anyways, this was a lovely tea to enjoy during the winter season, and made a perfect treat paired with my homemade banana muffins, but aside from that I don’t think I will be purchasing this tea.

I had a cup of this with lunch this afternoon. I really enjoyed it as a black tea, it was smooth and not at all bitter.
However, I didn’t pick up on the orange as much as I would have liked to. (It may have been that I was drinking it with hummus though, so the hummus probably overpowered the tea like crazy.)
First off – this tea. Wow.
It is beautiful. It looks the bottom of the Rocky Mountain Forests, all green and grassy and amazing. But because it’s a bag of full leaves and grass I had a bit of a hard time ‘scooping’ out two tablespoons. It was more like grabbing stuff with my fingers and putting into my infuser until it felt like two tablespoons.
Since I felt like I didn’t put enough in I let this steep for a long time… maybe 20 minutes or more? But It was worth it. It’s not super strong or harsh or bitter or anything. Its magnificent.
What I love is the refreshing taste that’s NOT peppermint (I don’t like peppermint teas).
All in all I am so happy that I have a caffeine-free tea that is super relaxing. A perfect in bed/beforebed/daydreaming tea to relax the body and stimulate the mind.
9.50 for 25g but totally worth it, depending on how much you want to use per cup.
Went to DavidsTea today to pick up some wintergreen woods and ended up taking a cup of tea to go. I tried this one because I thought it smelled delicious and Id heard good things about it. When I drank it though it was a bit of a different story…
so does anyone think this even tastes like tea? To me it tasted like watered down juice from concentrate. Orange or tropical punch maybe. Or hot vitamin water. I mean, it was good I guess but…. not something I want to drink if I’m in the mood for tea (I’d really rather the cold vitamin water I think).
I think if I ever tried this tea again it would be iced.
Had a cup of this before I headed out in the afternoon (but since I slept in it was more like morning to me). Always a perfect cup with breakfast. Nom.
I took two sips of this at a starbucks and felt like my throat was going to swell up. Sadly, I had to toss out the entire cup. From the bit I did get to taste, it seemed alright.
Still trying to figure out what it was in it that I am allergic to so that I can be careful when I pick new teas to try. Lately, comparing ingredients with other teas that have given me a similar feeling, I’ve narrowed it down to Licorice Root, Artificial Flavourings, or Blackberry Leaves.
Normally I go for plain green teas but one day while studying at a cafe I thought I’d give this one a go – bad choice! It was awful. I had my hopes up because I have tried mighty leaf teas before and I had known them to be of good quality, but this one tasted very artificial and just plain awful. I did my best to finish the cup because I hate to let things go to waste, but I basically chugged it.
To be frank, if I could describe the taste of this tea in one word it would be “glue”.
My go to tea everytime I get tea from a shop that sells mighty leaf. So far, its the only vanilla black tea I have found. Out of all of the other vanilla infused teas I have tried, this one is the most vanilla-y as well. Nom. :)
My boyfriend and I have decided that if butterbeer from Harry Potter was offered at Davids Tea this is what it would taste like.
It is delicious, both hot, cold, and with almond milk.
I loved to drink this tea in the mornings but sadly I have exhausted my supplies. :(
This is my go-to green tea because it is 100% organic. I love the taste, even when steeped very strong.
I also have used this tea to make cosmetics such as toners and face masks and It worked quite well.
The only downfall to this tea I would say is that it is a bagged tea – I prefer loose leaf teas.
Maybe I’m just the harshest pumpkin critic of all time but… it needs more pumpkin! I could taste it, but it wasn’t enough to get me onto the tea 100%. Overall, combined with the spices it had a definite pumpkin pie flavour.
Maybe it was the black tea, or maybe it was because I was drinking it from one of those crumby paper cups from Davids Tea, but I’m not sure if I can really fall in love with this one quite yet.
My boyfriend’s mom has a few boxes of this in her cupboard and I have to say it’s my favourite tea to have while I’m there. I’m not usually a fan of teas with mint in them (I’ve always thought it tasted like toothpaste water). This tea however I seem to love because of the other flavours, like vanilla (I’m a vanilla freak), that seem to tone down the minty taste.
While I normally drink my green tea organic, super strong and bitter, and with no additives I’m not usually a fan of venturing off into the flavoured green teas… until now. I have tried this tea twice from the Davids Tea shop and I have to say the second time I had it was a million times better than the first time. Its a perfect balance between a fruity tea and a green tea so is perfect if you’re in the mood for somewhere inbetween the two.
On a side note: has anyone else noticed that tea is never as good in those paper to-go cups you get at cafes and tea places vs. brewed in a mug? The only downfall to grabbing a tea from Davids when I’m out.
I bought a sample of this from Davids Tea and within a few days I had already finished all of it. I love raspberries, and the coconut is a nice touch without being too overbearing. It’s a lovely rich black tea that’s suitable for morning or for dessert. Unfortunately, since its a black tea I have to try to stay away from something like this after dinner because of the caffeine.
+ steeped the tea super strong and made a cup half hot almond milk and half tea. Amazing!
A perfect tea for Christmas time as it smells AND tastes exactly like Christmas stolen; a family brunch-time tradition. It’s very sweet so it’s a nice tea to have if I have a sweet tooth. However, because of it’s sweetness its not a tea I could drink more than a cup of at once.
