I’m not sure why I bought this but I am glad I did. I had never tasted straight mint tea but I thought it would be something great to have in my cupboard. Right now I am coming down with a cold and it really helps with my sore throat. I add honey to it and it becomes sweet and minty, yum! Way better than chamomile as a cold remedy in my opinion, but both are really good to keep on hand at all times! This morning I am still sick and in the mood for something stronger, so I mixed a tiny bit of this with my nepal black and some honey and it was sooo good! When I am out of this I really want to try the peppermint tea, they didn’t have it in stock the last time I went to the store. I feel like I am going to like it even better than spearmint.

I so agree, love spearmint and this one is so fresh, could be used as a mouthwash!

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I really need to stop buying artifically flavoured teas.. Most of the time they are just too much for me and I get tired of them after a few cups. But every season I just can’t resist trying some of Davidstea special collections teas!

Anyway, this one is my favorite out of the three teas I got from the winter collection. It really tastes like cake. It’s obviously artificial flavouring, but I would say it is nicely done and it doesn’t have a bad or fake aftertaste.

A note for my fellow quebecers : It’s called Brioche fruitée. When I picked it up in the store I didn’t know what to expect because I had never heard that name in my life. Then I realized it probably means Gâteau aux fruits. That is exactly what it tastes like.

I am not a pu’erh expert but I liked this one. The packaging is very nice and it’s not fishy. In fact, I ordered a lot of pu’erh samples from Teavivre and so far I haven’t been disappointed by any of them. I would need to do side by side tastings to pick out my favorite.

drank Pistachio Cream by DAVIDsTEA

This one tastes very creamy with an hint of pistachio. Even if I was expecting the other way around, I find it has a great balance and is pretty tasty. I’d be curious to try mulberry leaves on their own.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
115 tasting notes

This tea smells incredibly delicious, it reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum. I thought it would taste very fruity with a hint of spices, but it really tastes more almond-y than anything else. It’s good when you know what to expect, but I don’t think I would repurchase it. It has an aftertaste that bothers me, maybe some fake almond/cherry flavour that lingers.

drank Choconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
115 tasting notes

I can’t get this one to taste strong enough for my taste. I found it very bland, even with agave and foamed milk added to it with a little cocoa powder sprinkled on top. I thought it would be the perfect dessert tea but it only has a faint nutella aftertaste, I find it disapponting.

drank Assam Banaspaty by DAVIDsTEA

This is my first Assam tea. I was expecting my first sip to be very strong and flavourful, but I find that it’s mostly strong in the aftertaste and very astringent. It’s good, but I think I prefer other kinds of strong black teas.

drank Kenyan Tinderet by DAVIDsTEA

This is a very strong tea, but I like it that way. It’s good on it’s own, but even better with a little bit of sugar and milk if you’re into that. This is the kind of tea that would do very well in a chaï because it can stand up to the spices. This has become a staple in my cupboard for when I need a stronger cup. Yum!

This is very light for a black tea, it’s delicious and easy to drink. I think this would be great for people used to drinking green or white tea or just getting into the tea world.

This is a very good Pu’erh in my beginner’s opinion. It’s not fishy at all and it tastes a little sweet.

Bio

I started drinking tea only a few years ago and I enjoy it because there are so many different kinds to try. I love to step out of my comfort zone and taste a wide variety of flavours. I am very curious about the different types of tea and how they are processed. I also appreciate traditional or antique teaware.

This is how I rate teas:
100 : Extraordinary delicious
81-99 : Very good, I enjoy it a lot
66-80 : Good, but not in my favorites
51-65 : Ok, not impressed
36-50 :Disappointing but it isn’t bad
16-35 : I don’t enjoy drinking it
0-15 : Absolutely disgusting, I can’t drink it

In addition to being a tea drinker, I am a foodie, a traveler, an historical junkie, a geek that loves to play video games, a bookworm and a cat lover :)

English isn’t my first language so I hope I’m not butchering it too much!
