From DAVIDsTEA

Spring forward
It may be spring, but there’s no harm in dreaming of summer. This green tea has everything you need. Thirst-quenching orange zest. Luscious cocoa nibs. White chocolate crumbles. Sweet stevia leaf. One sip and you’ll find yourself thinking of green grass, summer romance and creamy, orange popsicles. Especially if you let it cool and freeze it in popsicle molds.

Day 28 of my 101 days of tea challenge.

I picked some of this up back in spring because the ingredients sounded VERY inticing, and the scent was quite nice. However, I’ve never found myself overly liking the way it tastes made.

I have to say, this is probably the best brew I’ve made of it so far, and I still found the sweetness and orange flavour a little strong, and the creaminess of the aftertaste off-putting. As a hot tea, it really… just doesn’t work too well, I think. It’s bearable, but it’s not something I would choose over most of the other teas available too me.

I’m hearing that this tea tastes better cold if not iced. I might try making some ice cubes out of this later, and see if it is better that way.

Honestly I was pretty underwhelmed with this one. I thought that the flavours didn’t really come out, and near the end it got fairly bitter. I realize that that’s generally a symptom of over-steeping, but I’ve never had this problem with any of my other teas, green or otherwise.

I didn’t sweeten it since it has stevia in it, which I thought would do that for me, but apparently not. I’ll try again with sweetener and see if it fares any better.

Dry, the tea had the same “off” smell that the Buttered Rum I tried had. Still, I grabbed 10 grams and brought it home to try.

Stepped, that smell is gone, or at least tempered by the citrus. It’s all just lovely, light citrus. There is a green foamy… scum around the edges of my mug and infuser, but I’m not worried.

The taste is nice. Green tea and citrus, and a smooth ending. I really like it. Not exactly like a Creamsicle, like some are claiming, but it’s a nice combination of fresh and comforting.

The dry tea smells like you should have to pluck it out of a lucite container with provided little plastic tongs and pay five cents a piece for it. (That is to say, like penny candy.) There’s a specific piece of candy that I’m thinking of, and I have no idea what it’s called. It’s a take on the orange-and-cream as well. It’s like a long round tube of orange with a chewy white middle. Whatever, it’s awesome. And this tea smells awesome.
I tried a tepid little sample at David’s when I went to get their spring teas, but I’m not counting that as actually trying it. That’s not the same way I’d do it at home.
I’m steeping it a little heavy, but I’m also steeping it in a large cup.
I’d forgotten it was a green tea or I would have tried it earlier for a late-night kick in the pants. It has an almost distractingly buttery smell (distracting me from work, not from enjoying the tea.) Like candy again; those buttered popcorn Jelly Belly beans. Mmm…
Seriously, though, the tea itself smells like a baked treat. Maybe a mini loaf with poppy seeds in it? Perhaps a drizzle of white chocolate over top?
Mmm, there are those oily drops again. I’m thinking they must be from the white chocolate. The tea smells so much nicer in my cup than it did at David’s. It was tasty at David’s, but the tiny little sample didn’t do the smell justice. I want to pour this tea over my head and massage it into my skin.
I’m finding it difficult to wrap my head around it being a green tea. I’m not geting any of the usual vegetable brothiness behind all the orange treatiness.
Ooooooh, nice! The green is 100% in the taste. It’s almost more of in the way it hits your mouth than the way I’d process it as a flavour. Instead of having the chewy baked-goods sweetness I expected in this tea, it ran its green tea farm equipment over my tongue and across the roof of my mouth. Absolutely not in a bad way, but not in a way I anticipated when I invited this tea in for a slurp.
It detracts from a little bit of the what-a-treatness of this tea, but I’ve been lured into the treat tea trap before (with Read My Lips) and I’ve managed to over-do it to the point where I had to put aside my bag of tea leaves for months at a time. (I still haven’t gone back to Read My Lips. I don’t know how far back that was.)
This is a good dessert tea to be sure, but I can also see drinking it first thing in the morning sun, sitting in the kitchen in my jammies, reading a Martha Stewart magazine or my politics-heavy Twitter feed, waiting for my daughter to wake up.
A nice tea experience to be sure.

Hmmm….this is a really unique flavour and scent combo. Very close to a creamsicle in taste, but the scent really threw me off.
I got a sample of this and tried a little bit today – the one thing that stands out to me is how the white chocolate came through once I poured the water over it :) It reminded me of this white hot chocolate my mum used to get for us sometimes, which was a nice nostalgic surprise!
I made it too weak but the orange and cream was definitely there, with the green tea in the background somewhere. It was also perfectly sweet on it’s own, which I love about flavoured Davids Teas (I like varying amounts of sugar in my drinks and for the first time I find myself not adding much, if any, to Davids’).
Definitely something I’m glad I got to try, and I’ll consider buying some before the spring collection is gone.

This tea is so good! It tastes exactly like a creamsicle, and brings me back to summer with the first sip. it smells divine, and the smell really translates to the flavour. A strong orange flavour, the white chocolate is an aftertaste and adds a creaminess that you wouldn’t think possible without adding anything. Perfect on its own, in a big ol mug :) I haven’t tried it iced yet, that’s next on the agenda. Overall, love this tea and its summery flavour. A little bitter zing at the end, but I think I steeped it too long by mistake.

Just tried this one in the store! It’s fantastic – really tastes like a Dream/Creamsicle! Orange and White Chocolate flavours mix together beautifully.

Orange and white chocolate in green tea. I feel like this shouldn’t work. Like at all. But I’m into it. It probably could go without saying that it’s best served iced, but I’ve been known to have a hot cup from time to time, if I’m feeling wacky that day. Also, I defy you to make popsicles with this stuff and not keel over with joy. You’re welcome.

I really wanted to like this tea since creamsicles were my favourite as a child. I was really disappointed with it though – the stevia (which I’m not a fan of) left a bad taste in my mouth and the tea had a scum on it. Wouldn’t buy again.

STEEP THIS BABY, AND STEEP IT LONG!

I find it’s not nearly as satisfying as the smell if you don’t steep the heck out of it, but that could just be me. A lot of people seem to think the scent beats the flavour, but who knows! I guess you’ve got to try it.

To think that it’s flavoured with white chocolate kind of shocks me; I don’t care for white chocolate, but it really works nicely. The orange is really nice – it’s a great tea for getting away from spiced orange and into sweet orange; a big difference! Don’t expect it to blend perfectly into kts namesake popsicle, but you can always try! If you want, a neat thing to try is making a latté with vanilla soy! I find it really… Wow. But not always something I’d want!
