252 Tasting Notes


I received the 5 for 5 from the extremely generous JustJames, and I have finally decided that it was time to try it, seeing that it is the weekend and I have the time to treat this tea properly, and really enjoy it.

On opening the bag a fresh aroma wafted towards me, not unlike nori.

The brewed flavour of this tea is oh so smooth, creamy, fresh, lightly vegetal. Oh JustJames, I am now so sorry I waited this long to try it, and will be so disappointed when I finish my packet. Thank you so much for sending this my way!

I got some of this the other day and it smelled delicious! I’m most intrigued to try it.


It is an outstanding green.

Yumyumyumyumyumyumyum. Did I mention that I think this is yummy?

Sweet, creamy, gooey, cinnamon-y deliciousness in a cup. I have been drinking this all day, and was reluctant to drink anything else. This tea is gonna go fast, despite the fact that I bought a 100 g’s of this.


Della Terra does dessert-y stuff very well.


I agree…had I known I would have ordered from them a long time ago.

that one sounds so good.

drank Mamma Mia by DAVIDsTEA

I got a package of this as a free sample from David’s on Mother’s Day, because I spent more than 50 or 60 dollars in-store. I’m glad it came as a free sample package, because I find this tastes more than a little strange.

I know I tried it as a hot brew and not liking it very much, probably because it was too sour. So I recently cold brewed this and all I taste is the tartness from the hibiscus and overpowering cinnamon. Drinking cold cinnamon is not enjoyable.


We loved mamma Mia hot, but I was heavy handed with the sugar. We went through 100 grams in less than a week, I don’t know what it was about it. Somehow I don’t think I’d want it again though, never refilled the tin. Must have been the honeymoon phase of those first few days as a loose leaf drinker


I have enough for one more cup. I’ll take your suggestion and try it with loads of sugar. Thanks for the idea! :)

its like koolaid when you add lots of sugar/agave haha… thats the only way i like to drink it too.

I am on a tea reviewing roll today!!

I LIKE this a lot!!! Probably because I do drink coffee, and the sronger the better! This brews up to a dark espresso colour, which did not scare me a bit, although I knew I needed to add cream to it.

This is so smooth, mellow and nutty. I’m on my second steeping and no flavour has been lost. I will get another steep out of this, as for a fourth? Yet to be determined. Yeah, I’m done reviewing. I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy this one.

I did something a little odd with this tea…

I initially bought it at the request for a fellow steepsterite member who did not have easy access to Teavana. I thought the dry leaf smell was awesome! I thought it would make a great cold brew.

I remember drinking it hot at work, and liking it, but for some reason held off on posting any reviews. I have recently cold brewed it, and found it a little lacking in flavour than the hot brew. So, I wondered how I was going to bump up the flavour…well, I have this thing for orange flavoured Bacardi Breezer, but after a couple of glasses, the sugar content in the Bacardi coats my tongue with yucky sugar paste. How did I cut out the sugar? I did a 50/50 blend of Bacardi with this tea, and it worked really well…I still need to find a better ratio, but the Bacardi is no longer sugary, and the tea is more palatable as a cold brew with the mix.


Sounds like something good to try!


I have to admit…I am enjoying this! :))

I had read a lot of great notes on this tea, and was particularly interested in trying some. Dexter3657 was generous enough to send a sample my way…thank you! I have not forgotten your fabulous generosity!

I am a huge fan of pistachio’s and ice cream. Put them together in a tea? Yes Please and Thank You! I really like this tea: it is yummy, roasty, nutty, creamy and delicious. The green tea works really well and complements and blends smoothly with the roasted pistachio flavour.

I have read so many good things about this blend, and was really eager to get my hands on a sample of this. Many thanks goes out to Short Sorceress for providing me with one.

This is delicious. OMG this is REALLY GOOD!! I didn’t know what to expect, but I didn’t expect this to taste as good as it does. I didn’t add sugar, this blend does not need it. It imparts a sweet creamy lemon dessert flavour.

I have a lemon chiffon from another company, which I have yet to try…I wonder if it will be as good as this one.

drank Sweet Strawberry by DAVIDsTEA
252 tasting notes

This is one of four tea’s that I have sipped down! I wonder if I should reward myself by buying more??!! Thank you JustJames for a sample of this one.

The dry leaf definitely smells of sweet strawberry. The tea brews to a lovely rose colour. I thought this was a good sign.

The first couple of sips I didn’t get very much strawberry flavour. As the tea cooled, it imparted a light tartness that I guess was supposed to be strawberry. I always found strawberries to be a little sour, so I don’t why I would think strawberry flavoured tea would be any different.

The tea was ok. I don’t think it’s one that I would purchase, but am glad that I got to try.

This is not a tasty tea. It says it is pomegranate green – but I’m not tasting any pomegranate. I taste a little bitterness and some strange background taste.

Not a fan, but I consider this a tasting adventure…thank you Short Sorceress!


LOL I like the tasting adventure attitude. Even bad teas are a learning experience.


If you don’t try new things/teas you don’t know. :)

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
