drank Grape Expectations by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

I have to up my rating on this one, because I have come to absolutely love it over the past couple of months (I even bought a 250g bag before it became discontinued). I was hesitant on the grape flavour before, now I think it’s endearing – and this has become one of my favourite flavoured greens.

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

I don’t know why I haven’t reviewed this one until now… Definitely one of my favourite fall releases from this year. I love Pumpkin Chai, but wished I could drink it later at night – and voila, here comes a caffiene-free pumpkin blend! I don’t know if I really get any cheesecake flavour out of this, but it’s a nice addition to my rooibos collection (because I can’t taste the rooibos base, LOL).

drank Sweet Apple Cider by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

I don’t know why I haven’t reviewed this tea yet, considering it is from the fall 2014 collection, but better late than never? This one definitely lives up to the ‘sweet’ part in the name, so avoid this one if you like your apple cider more tart and/or with some spice. I usually combine this one with Yes We Cran to make an apple/cranberry blend, and I think I might try mixing this with Cinnamon Rooibos next. I’m still not sure if I like this one better on its own or as a mix.

drank Pouchong Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

Tried this on a whim today, and I’m not sure how I feel about it – there are other straight oolongs I like better than this one, but it definitely wasn’t a bad cup. Maybe it was the milk addition that made this taste slightly off – if I ever have it again, I’ll definitely have to try it plain. As it stands, though, I have to rate it as I make it.

A Christmas present from my aunt! I LOVED this blend – black tea, spicy, a faint taste of orange and cranberry… absolutely delightful for Christmas morning. Definitely going to have to look into more blends by this company.

drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

Day #23 of tea! I was excited to try this one, as I’m looking for another coconut version to try (I’m not as crazy over Cocomint Cream as most people seem to be), and this one was delicious. Nice and creamy on its own, but I added a little milk for an extra oomph. Very tasty on a cold morning – I think I’d also like to try this as a latte.

So it’s not only me that didn’t like cocomint cream! Bought it as a treat from my boxin days sales, took a couple sips and was done! Added a chocolate honey stick and still didn’t make any difference

If you’re looking for a straight up coconut flavour, I’d recommend this one! DavidsTea had another coconut one last spring that was also pretty good, but it was only a limited release, alas.

drank Berry Good (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Day #20 of tea! I love, love, LOVE strawberry teas – this one gets an automatic thumbs up in my book for that. It’s sweet and tart all at the same time and I really wish I hadn’t discovered this so late in the game, as it’s been discontinued. WHY must DT discontinue all of its strawberry blends? (Save for Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait)

drank Yellow Gem by DAVIDsTEA

Day #19 of tea – Time for a posh selection, haha. I got some of this when I had some free tea, and it went away almost immediately after. This is a different sort of green tea – the flavour is unlike any I’ve ever had.

drank Rhubarb Chai by DAVIDsTEA
211 tasting notes

Day #18 of tea! A nice, soothing blend on this rainy morning. Not as strong as some chai teas I’ve had, but sometimes that’s what I’m looking for! I added some milk to this one to make it a little creamier, and as spicy black teas go, this one is pretty good.

drank Maple Sugar by DAVIDsTEA

Day #17 of tea! A holdover from the fall collection. I’m not quite sure what to make of this one, it’s good, but I think it needs more spices. It’s sweeter than I remembered, though I added milk to my mug this time, so that’s probably not helping my thought process there, haha. This definitely reminds me of fall, though, so it’s a nice nostalgic tea for today.
