84 Tasting Notes

I find that this tea and Splash! are very similar. It tastes about the same when Splash! is minus the ginger. I like this one a little better.

Although I normally don’t go for teas with cardamom and fennel, this one is okay in my books. I wanted to finish up with this tea and thought it would be horrible, but to my surprise it’s not so bad at all. I find that this is one of those teas that you drink to make you feel better inside and it would detoxify you!

I dunno what it is, but I like this tea. Not enough to buy a tin though.

drank Exotica by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

As many people have claimed, this is a very complex tea.

When I would steep this tea at 4 mins, this tea reminds me of thai curry. A lot of the flavours were blended together and I could not tell one apart.

I steeped this tea for 7 mins because I really wanted to draw out the flavours as much as I could. Lemon is the first flavour that comes out the most, then I taste the cloves and cinnamon. I never got a sweet taste from the coconut, oranges, or pineapple, which is a shame. At 7 mins this tea comes out to be more of a lemony tasting tea.

A new favourite. This is the first tea that I have come across that I really enjoy hot and cold. From the dry notes, I got a very lovely sweet fragrance. When steeped, the same thing comes out…yippie! I thought this tea would be weak in flavour, but heck no, it’s loaded with sweetness for 2 steeps! I felt like I was drinking a fruit juice! The ingredients used were pure genius, they were able to get an very noticeable kiwi flavour! I love kiwi’s.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Mine didn’t have a ton of flavour, but because of the kiwi(?) it had a different fruity flavour to other flavoured greens from DavidsTea. Refreshingly different, if nothing else :)

drank Licorice Twist by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

I am not a fan of licorice. I really haven’t figured out why. I think that this tea is OK though, nothing too special.

To me this tea reminds me too much of Bravissimo, I find that there isn’t too much of a difference between the two.

There is a nice sweet after taste that is very cool and soothing. I really enjoy that aspect of the tea, other than that, I can’t really taste anything else in the tea.

drank Ice Cream Cake by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

This is a really interesting blend. For once I don’t taste the bitterness from the black tea.

As many said, this tea does remind me of Neapolitan ice cream. There is definitely a lot of sweetness that comes from the tea itself, so don’t worry about adding sweetener to it.
The taste is much lighter than expected. From the dry notes in the bag I was expecting a large kick when I drank it, but it was nice that I didn’t have to worry about that this time (compared to Chocolate Cake…which really kicked me in the face!).

I have mixed feelings about this one. Maybe it’s the stevia or carob, but I think the combination of the two I just don’t like!

drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA

Dry Notes: bubblegum
Wet Notes: bubblegum again!

I am really loving this one. I wasn’t expecting it so much but man! It’s such a lovely flavour. I kept going back for more…I think I drank close to 5-6 cups of this in a day.

The flavour is amazing, nice and sweet, no bitterness at all and it smells amazing—essentials for a great tea. I can’t really say much more, you have to try it. I love it! Will definitely buy a tin!

Dry note: Hint of sweetness
Wet Notes: I could only smell rooibos

Unfortunately this tea is one of my least favourites just because I can barely taste the raspberry and all I can taste is rooibos. The ratio of additives to tea is probably a bit off.

The smell comes off a lot different than expected. I feel like if you put this under my nose while I was blindfolded, I would think that this is more of a herbal tea (I guess it’s the honeybush and lemongrass). Even with honeybush and lemongrass, I hardly taste those…maybe a bit, but not enough to tell the ingredients apart.

I really want to try this iced before I come to a conclusion, but I don’t think it’ll make much of a difference. Rooibos is a hit or miss with me…but I am starting to like it a bit more.

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

I picked up 10g of this and the manager told me that it was really good—and she is not a fan of Earl Grey…neither am I.

I finally got around to trying it today and WOW and I am really impressed! Normally it’s a meh taste for me, but I am really liking the smooth and citrusy flavours with a hint of bitterness that you normally encounter with earl greys.

I am definitely going to get a tin of this :)!

Darn. I really had high hopes for this one because DT usually does a good job with citrusy teas (Elf Help, Midsummer Night’s Dream, etc). I am disappointed with this one. I can tell they used a Japanese green tea instead of a chinese tea because of the nutty/grassy taste that comes out…I find it really overpowering. I don’t taste the orange at all…just green tea :(

drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA
84 tasting notes

I like this tea, not love it, but I like it. The dry scent of the leaves really draw me in, just because of it’s sweet and fresh smell (to me anyway).

When steeped, I found that this tea is OK, maybe I don’t like the red rooibos that much. I think if the tea was made with green rooibos, I would like it better. The round flavour of the red rooibos is overpowering at times and I barely taste the sweetness from the pineapple/other flavours.

Overall I like it just because I really like the smell and taste. Unfortunately it’s not a favourite :(
