From DAVIDsTEA

Everything nice.

Have you heard about the new tea in town? She’s a looker alright: dark, robust, and seductive, with a heart of gold. And you didn’t hear it from us, but she’s even better with a little booze. She’s a luscious black tea, with deep caramel flavour from dried golden mulberries and spicy warmth from orange peel and cinnamon. Take her apple picking. Bring her to Thanksgiving dinner. Sit with her by the fire. You’re going to want her by your side all fall.

Hmm, this is an interesting one. I love caramel and I love spicy…but this tea didn’t satisfy me the way I thought it would. I am not sure where the caramel comes in, the spice I could taste. I was very excited to buy and try. But it left me wanting more. I still don’t see where the caramel comes in…

This is another autumn tea from David’s Tea. The dry tea smells amazing. You can smell the orange peel, but it’s not a purely fruity smell, probably because of the Saigon cinnamon. Once steeped, the first thing I do, before even touching my drink, is pick out the mulberries from the steeped tea. Unconventional, maybe. But they are so delicious that throwing them out would be a sin. I had never tasted mulberries before picking them out of this tea, and now I’m hooked. They aren’t tart like a lot of other berries, and they soak up the tea so they’re just about bursting with flavour.

But I digress, the tea is now steeped. It still smells just as sweet, and is a very dark, but clear brown. Unfortunately, I find it to be lacking a little in flavour. After taking a sip, I taste a bit of orange and mulberry on the back of my tongue, and hints of mulberry and cinnamon definitely linger. Regardless, it isn’t as full a flavour as I had hoped, and I couldn’t taste caramel at all.

I’m trying to decrease my use of sugar and honey in tea, but I’ll sweeten this a little. It makes a bit of a difference, the tea tastes a little fuller now. I can actually taste the cinnamon before I’ve swallowed the tea, but the aftertaste isn’t ideal. The mulberries are already naturally sweet and I find that the sugar makes it all a little overpowering.

I’m not sure if I’ll buy this tea again. As far as scent goes, it’s definitely at the top of my list. And the mulberries are a huge plus. But the tea is lacking taste without sweetener, and gets overpowered with sweetener. Unfortunate, since I really do love mulberries.

One word: bold. Here are reasons why I adore this tea:
1. The longer you steep it, the better the taste! It won’t become very bitter, and the flavours of caramel and orange are incredibly aromatic, it will melt your senses away!
2. Add sweetened condensed milk to it. It will add an extra creaminess to your tea. So skip the sugar and milk next time (Condensed milk works wonders with any black tea!!)

I will definitely be returning to buy a new canister. Do try it out @David’stea. You can order online as well :)

I cannot wait to try this! I don’t live by a DT so I have been stocking the website until more stock comes in. It’s been sold out for way to long and I just wanna get some of it!

Really enjoying this fall collection of teas! I didn’t know what to expect before trying this, and the flavours are unique but definitely good. The ingredients all taste great together – I love how the cinnamon doesn’t really come through much except for the warmth it gives. The orange peel is there but subtle, and these mulberries really do give this a caramel aspect.

This tea is seriously dreadful! There’s something about it that really turns me off. It has this sort of…spicy rotten orange taste (and I do like blood orange black tea at times). Not getting any caramel to speak of. Bleargh!

Aroma: orangey in the bag, more caramel when steeped.
Taste: I was very suprised by this blend. I got 50g as a gift and would never have bought that much for myself. The first couple of times I had it, it was bitter. I learned to keep the steeping time shorter and it is less bitter with less of a weird cinnamon taste.
I like the dark caramel taste with the small hint of orange and cinnamon.
Just make sure you steep more toward the 4 minute mark rather than the 6 minutes.

The initial smell is that of oranges, not getting a lot of caramel. So, how will it taste?

I tried to like this tea. I really did, but it just didn’t jive with my taste buds: too much orange, no hint of the caramel in the name, and an odd taste which I assume comes from the mulberries. Nope, could not like it. This tea and I are destined for separate lives, which is fine by me.

I was unsure about this tea in the store when I smelled it, but there was something captivating about it that I just had to bring a bit home to try. The dry leaves are interesting, and the dried mulberries make me think of tiny little pinecones in my my teapot. Dried, it has a overwhelming orange smell with undertones of ‘spice.’
While steeping, the orange smell diminishes some, and it has a pleasant aroma.

Taste wise, it strongly reminds me of creamsicle. I taste very little spice, with the exception of a slight bite in the after taste. And there is a creaminess that I assume is the caramel, but I cannot easily identify it as caramel. I am not wowed, but I am happy to finish of the sample I brought home. I’m not sure that I will miss this tea at the end of the fall, but its enjoyable enough for now.

I loved the sweet notes of cinnamon and caramel. Seemed a little sharp and bitter at times, or maybe I didn’t steep it long enough. Wonderful on a fall weekend morning while reading. Not something I’d be buying lots of, but it fits certain occasions very nicely.

This is a very nice tea. It does have a fruity, caramel taste behind the nice black tea. However, I found it a little underwhelming as compared to the rest of the David’s Teas I’ve tried. I probably won’t order more, but I will enjoy
