I’m glad I had a cup of this. It’s been months and I always forget how good it is but the name just never gets me excited, but then when I finally do, I really like it!

Now to check if Sil has had any of this… I heard she likes ginger and other spices…

Sil

hahaha

Cavocorax

So I spent about 10 minutes trying to look through your ratings and the ratings for this tea and I have no idea. Sooooo… let me know if you want some!

Sil

I haven’t had it :) fastest way is to jump pages but yeah no rating on this one yet

Cavocorax

Haha. I DID jump pages but even then you had 10 pages JUST for DAVDsTEA. ;P

Sil

Dexter

So I was perusing my cupboard this morning, and I’ve been feeling like sweeter teas lately but I didn’t want to use another sachet of Paris. So I decided to try to change my sweet craving haha and i haven’t had this tea in ages, so I put this in the timolino today. Yes, a far cry from a sweet tea, but maybe I’ll start drinking some of my spicier green teas down now. This is indeed spicy and fresh, which is nice as I’m getting in a spring mood so I should drink more fresh teas. Also good to get out of my high caffeine mode I’ve been feeling lately haha. Must be stress that’s making me want sweet, decadent black teas lol:p anyways, see previous notes on this tea :)

ETA – this is doing the job! I now want fresh teas, the spring davids collection might be helping too, i want to try the Honeydew mate so bad! Making a shopping list… Uh oh lol

Made this one as a cold brew today. I was craving chai but I was trying to stay away from black tea today. When I had this one the first time, it really reminded me of chai, because it has chai spices in it I guess.

Cold brewed for about 7 hours. It is quite good. I think it is better this way than hot.

There is a light vanilla-ish taste in the base. It is not necessarily distinguishable as a green tea. I can taste the chai spices, cardamom, licorice, ginger, cloves. The black pepper is very strong. I can taste the peppermint but it is very light, and I have to think about it to actually taste it. It is slightly sweet, a little artificial tasting, but the sweetness is not overdone.

I’m finishing up my day with this one, since it tends to calm my tummy and headaches, both of which I have at the moment. I’m just not hungry today, which is weird and tells me I’m sick. I’ve made two full meals for myself today and couldn’t finish either. Blegh. This tea is still delicious and tasty, but I’m just not in the mood to finish my teas today, I guess.

YAY!!!! First sample from the swap box Shmiracles sent me!!!! I’m so excited! There are sooooo many teas in this box! You really outdid me. I thought we were shooting for 10. I think I gave you 13. And then I open this deceivingly small box to find 20 samples!!!! Wow!! You are amazing, girl!

So, on to the first one! :D I do have to ask though…What does this tea have to do with North Africa? When I think of houjicha, I think of Japan. When I think of chai spices, I think of India. And when I think of peppermint, I think of Christmas and the North Pole. LOL! No Africa in any of that! But let’s just get brewing already. :P

The dry leaves looks like chai and are chock full of spices and big cardamom pods. Mmm, I LOVE chai! This smells heavenly! And I don’t even remember the last time I had houjicha. It’s been too long. I loved houjicha long before I loved sencha, matcha, white tea, and even oolong! Okay okay, it’s done steeping and now I can finally get to the taste!

First sip…hmm, all I can really taste is chai spices. It probably didn’t help that I just ate three slices of pepperoni and sausage pan pizza. LOL! But I was starving!! I couldn’t wait any longer! Man, I am talkative tonight. I apologize for my ramblings. Just very excited! Second sip…now I’m getting a hint of mint amongst all the spicy goodness. But the houjicha seems very quiet still.

Well, even just as a cup of chai mint tea, it’s yummy! I’m surprised I like the introduction of mint in chai. I think it works because it’s a very small amount of mint compared to the other flavors. Now if only I could get the houjicha to shine! Houjicha has such a nice roasted toasted taste. The base here feels more like a backdrop to the mint and chai spices so that you’re not drinking a purely herbal tea. No roasty toasty elements to be found, sadly.

Oh well, if I didn’t know what houjicha was supposed to taste like, I wouldn’t know what I was missing. So overall, I’m enjoying this cup for what it does taste like. ;) Wow, my brain is just kooky tonight. Is any of this making sense? LOL! Thanks Shmiracles!!!!

well, don’t thank me yet, cuz some of those are lapsangs and i notice on your profile that you’re not really a fan. however, i AM a fan and i’m on a secret mission to convert everyone haha.
ok ok not really. but a girl can dream.

Shmiracles

ok see. what really happens is i start putting a box together. and as i do that i’m like “oh but i didn’t include this one” or “i can’t give them this one without that one” etc etc until i’m trying to decide which one to take out cuz i can’t close the box.
i was never good at making mixed tapes either. it’s sooo hard to choooose!
your box is great too!! swapping really is the funnest. i definitely always feel like i get as well as i give. and there is always something to be said about getting to try a brand new tea :)

Got this as a sample in one of my orders. When? Beats me!

I feel like I’m coming down with a cold or something, but it could be allergies, so I just need something mellow and fennel-y. That always helps me.

I dug around my tea bins at work and found this one; gave it a try. The dry leaves smell totally different than the brewed tea, which is random. Dry, the leaves remind me of mint and fennel. Brewed? I’m thinking of…pizza. I told you it was random!

The tea itself reminds me of a tea I used to drink when I was little, an herbal concoction my late grandmother would drink to cure hangovers. (She was Irish…) I’m also enjoying more of a vegetable-y aroma, like grass or summertime outdoors.

Not sure how to rate this one. I’ll hold off on the rating until I brew up another cuppa.

This is the second cup I made to soothe my stomach this morning. Turns out all I really needed was breakfast but yet again, this is brewed so might as well enjoy it. Alas “enjoy” isn’t the word I would really use to describe this cup. This, like Le Digestif, tastes more like herbal medicine than a tasty cup of tea. Especially since I turned to tea in order to enjoy all the flavors I could not otherwise have since I am on a diet, this really is not something I would ever reach for when I have soo many other delightful treats in my stash. I suppose that is why this herb-y, mint-y tea is on my swap list.

Ha-I know what you mean about those teas. I’ll sniff a tea every now and then and be like “oh I don’t want this-it smells like it’s sick people tea and I’m not sick at the moment!”

VariaTEA

Haha. It is funny because my Dad believes all tea is “sick people tea”. He grew up only ever drinking tea (with lemon and honey) when he was sick so to him, my tea shopping is insane. In fact, I also used to only have tea when I was sick and it actually took me getting sick in August and having cup after cup to reevaluate my thoughts on the stuff. Now I am a tea addict and realize there is far more out there then the Tetley Orange Pekoe I grew up with.

I have quite a bit of this one left in my tin and was running low in my stocks of the usual cold brewing suspects so I thought, why not give it a shot?
I cold steeper overnight for about 18 hours. The result is a rather ugly shade of yellowy brown, but the smell was the usual spicy smell so I got past the colour…
The result is good, but compared to this tea hot brewed, nothing special. The spice really comes through first, while the mint is almost an afterthought (and it kind of coats the throat wierdly…).
Overall, not a bad experiment, but I think that I will save this for hot brewing.

Thank you VariaTEA for sending this sample my way. I love mint teas, and this is a nice one. I really like the cardamon and the pepper in this blend. It gives it a kick that’s quite enjoyable. I do prefer gunpowder green over the Hojicha because I think the smokey note goes so well with the mint. Still, this is a good blend, and I’m happy I finally got to try it.

Also, this is my first DAVIDs tea!

VariaTEA

YAY! I am glad you enjoyed it!!

Cavocorax

This is a nice one to start with! My friend doesn’t like DavidsTea at all because of all the weird flavours, but this one was a complete winner. It’s a serious tea for them, compared to all the fun and sweet dessert teas. (Which I enjoy too. :P) Anyway I’m happy you tried it in case you’re like my friend and didn’t like the other teas. She was prepared to write off the entire company until she found this one.

Veronica

The main reason I don’t order from Davids is that I keep reading about the oily film on top of the tea. I guess it’s not uncommon in flavored teas, but the fact that it’s mentioned so much with this company kept me away. So I’m glad this was my first Davids tea, too ‘cause it’s good!
