This one is a bit astringent, but the fruit flavor does a lot to cover it. I’m not sure I’d call it pomegranate – it’s more red berry than anything else – but it makes for a juicy tea.

I love this as a work tea and may have to order/get more. The grapefruit is just a bit sharp and the vanilla contributes a wonderful, cake-like quality to the tea. The dry least even smells fluffy and light, just like this tea tastes. Yum!

This one smells medicinal, but luckily doesn’t taste medicinal. I like the almond in this one – it contributes a sweetness to the tea I don’t think it would have otherwise. I don’t get any lemon, though; this one actually tastes like watered down bubblegum. Weird.

I got this one as part of a sampler that I still haven’t tried. A year after getting it. Yikes! In an effort to try/drink up some of my older teas, this one (along with its sampler and another untouched sampler) have been packed up for work.

This was not bitter as I expected it to be. It’s vaguely sweet with a faint tropical fruit flavor. I get hints of coconut, but none of the other fruits that are supposed to be in this blend. I like it, but I don’t think it’s something I’ll need to restock once my sample is finished.

Vegetal, but not bad. Crisp and refreshing.

Enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. The strawberry is not it’s usual unbearably tart self. It’s a sweeter strawberry tea!

When I first had this tea, it tasted spot-on like banana bread. Now, it’s just carmelized sugar in the faintest way. Not bad, but a far cry from the bananas foster goodness I was hoping for.

This one smells better than it tastes.

Dry, its like a spice cookie. Steeped, its just spice and astringency. Not bad, but kind of a let down based on how good it smells. Probably should have had it with milk and sugar, but I didn’t have any at work.

This has been keeping me company through a week of training. And it’s true to its name. I made French toast from scratch last weekend and this tea tastes like the egg/cinnamon/nutmeg mixture I soaked the bread in. It’s warm and comforting, especially with some sugar and a little bit of milk.

I stopped into DT yesterday and found that this tea is now gone, at least from that location. Maybe others still have it.

The DT near me said they were getting more in … but we’ll see. :-/

Sipdown.

I was really excited when I first read the description for this one. It sounded minty and creamy – a perfect bedtime tea. The actual experience leaves something to be desired, however. The coconut is there, but not always and the mint varies between tolerable and overwhelming. I liked this a lot better as a work tea than as a tea I brewed at home.

The first time I tried this, it was nice. The subsequent times blech. meh.

I remember 1-2 years ago having this tea and liked it. About 2 months ago I grabbed some from the staff room and it was rancid. It turned me off from it lol.

Oh no! I’m so sorry!
Yeah, this one sounds like a good idea but I feel like the execution is a bit lacking.

I became interested in tea spring 2013, when some friends of mine brought me to a local tea shop. I’ve been experimenting since, and am absolutely in love! I am especially fond of blended teas, and I’m a sucker for gimicky flavors.

My cupboard is stocked with a lot of DAVIDsTEA at the present, although I do have a few teas from some local shops. I’m looking forward to branching out and trying teas from different vendors and shops. Let the journey begin!
