drank Banana Split by DAVIDsTEA
301 tasting notes

I was a little wary on trying this one, as I don’t like the dessert teas as much as the rest, and banana isn’t my flavour of choice, either. As predicted, this was sweet – not as sickly as I was expecting, which was a good thing. That said, while I finished off my mug (I originally brewed it hot, then decided I’d like it better iced), and there’s a little more in the sample I have, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more of this. I can see the tea’s appeal, but it’s just not for me.

drank Lung Ching by DAVIDsTEA

Considering this is a plain green, I’m actually realised surprised at how much I liked this! I guess it all has to do with the quality of the leaves and proper steeping methods. Of course, it’s expensive and a limited time only thing, so I think my 10g purchase of this will be all I get. Sigh.

Oh I just love this tea

drank Zomba Pearls by DAVIDsTEA

I love the look of this tea! I almost didn’t want to steep it, haha. I’m not a huge fan of straight whites, but I thought I’d give this one a go just to try it, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The employee at DT who served me said this tastes even better re-steeped, so I’ll have to give that a whirl later, as well.

drank Ruby Red by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve recently gotten into a grapefruit kick… I loved this an iced tea! Tart, but not overly so, and very drinkable. Definitely going to be in the rotation!

Not really sure where I stand on fruit + mint in my tea, but this was good! Possibly better than Watermelon Mint. Very refreshing as an iced tea.

drank Grilled Pineapple by DAVIDsTEA

While I don’t like this one as much as my beloved Pineapple Oolong (rest in peace), this one was still delicious as an iced blend. Not sure how I’d like it hot (though I’m sure I’ll eventually try it, it is a flavoured green, after all), but this will definitely be in the iced tea rotation this summer.

I bought some Pineapple Oolong a couple of weeks ago in my local store. Discontinued already?

I think so… I haven’t been able to get any online for a while, and my store doesn’t have any. :(

Raven, I am seeing Pineapple Oolong for sale online right here. http://www.davidstea.com/oolong-tea

I love, love, LOVE Darjeelings. I can find no fault with this one – my cup was HEAVENLY. I just wish this was around for longer.

drank Coconut Ice by DAVIDsTEA

This was a pleasant surprise! I’m not a huge lover of the coconut teas from DT (Coconut Oolong being the exception), but I had this iced today and it was pretty good! I think, if I ever have it again, to add some milk – this would be delicious as an iced latte! Also, I have to give it props for being organic!

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

Hurrah, new summer teas! Had this one iced to go today, and- mmmmm, delicious! It definitely reminded me of Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, which is okay, since I LOVE that one. A different flavour profile might be nice, but I won’t say no to another strawberry tea. You can taste the coconut, so it isn’t as tart as SRP. Definitely getting more of this one – it’s yummy on its own, and would, I think, be delightful as a mix for an, ahem, alcoholic beverage :)
