From DAVIDsTEA

Falling snow, popping chestnuts, cold hands and noses…yep, winter has arrived. But don’t worry, we have the perfect tea to warm you up all December long. Cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, and hibiscus combine for a tea that is sweet, tart, and earthy. And beet pieces make it as nice and rosy as a caroler’s cheeks. So hop in your sleigh, snuggle up, and pass a thermos around. It’s lovely weather for a Sleigh Ride together.

Another that I’ve run out of and forgot to log… I really ought to pay more attention to what’s in my Steepster cupboard. >.>

I liked this one, but found it a bit biting. It’s a good apple tea with a hint of cinnamon. Enjoyable and very appropriate for the winter holiday season.

I had saved the rest of this for my kids to drink during the summer iced. Although they enjoyed it I don’t plan on getting it again because there are plenty of other teas they like more.

Samples Only TTB

Wow… this smells awesome and tastes even awesomer.
I opened the bag and it smelled like Christmas. I caught a hint of something odd and smokey and I peered at the contents until I noticed little bits of white which I identified as popcorn. I thought “Well this is going to be interesting.” And I was right.

It’s delicious. A slightly sweet, slightly spiced, slightly buttery… I don’t even know how to describe this. It tastes like a mothaeffin SLEIGH RIDE.

There is a sweet fruit flavor in here somewhere but it hides behind the spice and popcorn. The popcorn is a note I never expected to love in tea but now I wonder what other teas need a freaking piece of popcorn added.

So I recommend this. I will keep this sample… and I may have to buy more of it. Because it’s bloody good.

I’ll start with something positive – it’s a pretty red color! Beyond that there is not much I can say that’s positive. Too tart, no definable flavors. They list a ton of fruits but I can’t taste anything specifically.

Uh, hm. I think I should have had this before the almond amazingness from yesterday, because this is comparable, yet, nowhere near as good. I can see where it’s going, there’s just too much hibiscus or whatever it is in there making this tart and bitter.

Thank you khamilton611 for sharing this with me in the Tea and Yarn swap!

I needed some little break between the caffeinated teas, so I don’t walk the walls and ceilings at midnight, and so I went with this.

Dry, it smells delicious. When brewed into a crazy neon orange liquor, it still smells delicious. Like plums and cinnamon and Christmas punchiness. The taste is mostly a tart kind of bland. Yes, there’s hibiscus in it. So that’s where the tart comes from. I could taste cinnamony unidentified fruit. Apples? Something like apples.

It was pretty tasty, but fruit teas are not really my thing. And there’s artificial flavoring in this one shrugs.

Now I gotta go deal with my room which has tea packages everywhere, as well as clothes and books in piles of no particular sense or logic. When I think of that, it fills me with dread. I’d rather step into Bird of Prey’s room full of drunk Klingons.

I mean it. sighs

I completely can relate about unorganized piles everywhere. And it’s so disappointing when something looks and smells delicious and just turns out bland.

This is hands down my favorite davidstea product. I’ve ordered it two years in a row now (no stores in California—boo!) and love it. I buy enough to last me the whole year. I love the initial smell—floral and summer-y despite being a winter tea— and that when brewed it becomes pink. Love it hot or iced.

This tea has a hibiscus bite to it, so if you do not like hibiscus this tea will not be to your liking. It does have a nice fruity flavor beyond the hibiscus. I tried a sip before adding sweetener, but for my taste it needed some. Once I added the sweetener, it mellows some of the hibiscus bite. I also put it over ice, since when a tea has hibiscus I usually need it to be sweetened and iced. I do like it now that i have it doctored to my taste. I can drink this tea again with no problem, which I guess is a good thing since I purchased several Christmas items on clearance that had this tea in it.

For me, this tea was like Forever Nuts plus hibiscus . I was not a fan.

At least you found a way to enjoy it though :)

It’s not terrible, I just wish it tasted the way it smells. It smells gorgeous. Spices and fruit and wonderfulness. You go to take a sip, it smells like winter and roaring fires and being bundled up with a good book to read.

And then it tastes like hibsicus. I ended up getting this at the end of the season for a good discount, and there is a small part of me that’s been considering just picking out all the awesome parts and leaving the hibiscus behind. Very little cinnamon or spice. The popcorn is cute but doesn’t really add anything.

I’m disappointed. I’ll drink it, because I bought it. But I wouldn’t buy it again.

This tastes more cinnamon-y than I remember from before. At first, I liked the tangy part, but now I’m not so sure.
