I have drank this a couple of times this last week but finally felt well enough to actually taste it! I still really enjoy this tea. And I feel that the flavour has held up fairly well.

I am still loving this tea. Tonight, I used my Bodum press and it worked really well. I threw in a splash of milk because what the heck, I like it best this way!

This is always a pleasure to drink, one of my favourite teas. I think this is from August 2014 and it is losing its flavour but you better believe I will drink every last drop of this beautiful tea.

I am so jealous of all of you guys that got to have Butiki when it was still open. So many amazing teas that I can only dream of trying…

Evol Ving Ness

That said though, I can enjoy them in my imagination and my imagination is pretty vivid.

Indeed, Butiki is sadly missed :(
I would swap some teas, but they are already so old, I feel it wouldn’t be fair to you or the tea!

Sipdown. I rather enjoyed this tea, especially with lemon, ginger, and honey added while I have been sick. Hopefully I will actually be able to taste my tea again soon.

Evol Ving Ness

I hope you are starting to feel better. So good to have all the ingredients on hand to comfort oneself while shaking off whatever slows us down.

Thank you Evol Ving Ness!

drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

The smell of this tisane is so good. It does help me feel better, so it does what it’s supposed to.
Blah I hate being sick :(

I have a cold…again :(.
This tea is one of my go to teas when I am sick. I tried it bare and I found it fairly enjoyable. The pear is sweet and the ginger adds that spice that makes a good combination. But where did the white tea go? I think there was only 2 leaves in the infuser. That’s an expensive price tag for a fruit tea.

When I am sick, I make a concoction of honey, lemon, and ginger root and add it to this tea. It tastes great and helps me feel better.

Exactly why I don’t drink white tea. Most of those teas are blended with inexpensive fruit to create a pricey blend. In my opinion, I’d rather stick with a herbal

Unfortunately for me, white tea is a favourite of mine. And DAVIDsTEA is notorious for white blends with little actual tea. $$$

Evol Ving Ness

Feel better.

Thanks Evol Ving Ness

I totally hear your frustration, tigress_al :(

drank Berry White by DAVIDsTEA

I am surprised that there isn’t higher reviews for this tea. It is fairly light, but it’s a white tea. I thought it tasted fairly decent and there wasn’t any nasty stevia (I don’t think).

Chilled, this tea is even better. It might even be better cold brewed.

Hoooray for no nasty stevia. Why oh why do the tea companies add that stuff?

I know hey!

drank Honey Black by DAVIDsTEA
1092 tasting notes

This is a decent straight black tea. I found this tea very malty. Being named “Honey black,” I was expecting the honey notes to be a little more prominent though. They were present, but very much in the background. There was also a little astringency, so I would maybe try brewing for only 3 minutes next time.

The price tag is a little high. This won’t be a cupboard staple for me but I wouldn’t refuse a cuppa this.

Have you had Beautiful Taiwan Tea’s Honey Black? Or Green Terrace’s? Curious if you could compare them.

tigress_al

Shoot Nicole, no I haven’t. Sorry

Nicole

I wonder if they are less expensive than David’s. Although shipping is always a factor if you are lucky enough to just be able to go to a David’s in person. :)

tigress_al

There is a DT at our downtown mall, so I generally drink a lot of their tea (it’s convenient)

I am so happy to have this tea again! This is one of my favourite teas, smooth and sweet, with slight chocolate notes. It has a silky mouthfeel and smells so delicious. I like to watch the large pearls unfurl in my steeper.

I used 5 pearls for this cuppa today.
The resteep at 4 minutes was a little astringent, so maybe 3 or 3.5 would have been better.

Maybe I just haven’t found the right steeping parameters yet. Any suggestions?

I love white teas, and this was the only white blend, so I “had” to try it! I wasn’t sure how I felt about a white chai, and I’m still not sure. To me, chai is best enjoyed with milk and I am not sure this would take milk well.

On the other hand, this tea is blended very well and the flavours meld well together.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
