drank Kashmiri Chai by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

A chai that has green tea as the base? I was a little wary going in, but I was quite pleasantly surprised at how much i liked this one. Spicy, yet a little sweet and lighter than other chais I’ve had. Out of all the chais I’ve tried, this is probably the first one I’d actively seek out more of.

Stash makes a Kashmiri chai — green tea base — that is fabulous. The spice bled is great, and the green tea base is decent, too, not all dull and overpowered by the spices.http://www.stashtea.com/India-Kashmiri-Chai-Green-Tea/dp/B005DM5FH8

Ooh, I’m definitely going to have to look into that! Thanks!

drank Chai & Mighty by DAVIDsTEA

I do enjoy a chai with a vanilla flavour – mmmm. I don’t think I steeped this one as long as I should have, as it was a weaker taste than I was imagining for a chai. And there was a sweetness to this one that I also liked. Still pleasant, but next time I’ll leave the bag in for longer.

drank Pumpkin Pie Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

This was a strange one, as it was another matcha, and I’m still not entirely sure how much I like matcha. I could definitely taste the pumpkin, but there was the expected grassy aftertaste to it, as well. It was good, but not one I’d likely go out of my way to get. There are other pumpkin teas that I like better. Still, I’m glad I tried this!

I feel you about the matcha. The only time I use it is to throw it in a smoothie for a caffiene boost

drank Spiced Apple by DAVIDsTEA

This is basically apple cider. Which is a good thing! I’m not really a big fan of apple cider, but I can appreciate what this has going for it – spicy, sweet and very autumn-esque. I’m not a huge ainse fan, either, and I know there’s some in this, so there’s that to deal with, as well. But this is totally drinkable.

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA

I like this one! One of the few teas, I think, that I prefer the taste over the smell. I was lamenting the loss of Mom’s Apple Pie this season, so I was pleased to see a new apple-flavoured green tea show up. I had a lot of green tea in my 10g sample, so I can’t complain there.

This is a strange one… The smell is delicious, but it seems like I’m getting a different taste with every sip, haha. I like cranberry, and I like orange, and I like muffins. I’ve had numerous cranberry orange muffins in my time, and this tea doesn’t really taste like any I’ve had. Maybe it’s the addition of the dandelion and hibiscus doing strange things? I only got 10g of this to try, so maybe there’s more of those ingredients there, or something. And those 10g only got me one cup of tea (minus a resteep, if I so choose), so that’s also a negative. Not enough bang for my buck, I don’t think.

drank Ginger Beer by DAVIDsTEA

Hello, ginger! I was excited to try this one, though I had reservations about this tasting too similar to Super Ginger. It’s still spicy, but a little sweeter, which is probably due to the apple. I liked this one, but I don’t know if it’s a must-keep for me. I usually only drink Super Ginger when I’m sick, and since this tastes very similar to it (at least to me), I cannot help but associate this with being sick. Which is unfortunate. >_>

One of my coworkers gave me a sample of this one – mmmm, it actually kinda tastes like pie! And I’m toally okay with that! One of the most ‘pumpkiny’ teas I think I’ve had.

I wish I had picked up a bigger box of this to bring home. Sigh! Purchased while in NZ, and I used it as my to-go breakfast tea at the hotels I was staying at, and I used up probably half the bags. Nice and strong, hurray for black tea.
