Iced, this is really good. The berries are still the most prominent, but the pineapple comes out a little more iced than hot.

I received this tea in January, but just cracking into it now. I opened the bag and it smelled very strongly of alcohol. I brewed it up, hoping the alcohol smell would go away, or the tea at least wouldn’t smell like alcohol, but now it’s all I can smell/taste.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I read somewhere (I don’t remember where) that some teas are flavoured with alcohol, and if “aired out” for awhile, it will evaporate or something like that. Does anyone know?

UPDATE: I left this open overnight and it no longer smells like alcohol. I brewed it up and it was delicious, but I did not have the time to actually pay attention enough to write a tasting note. More to come later….

Supposedly yes….leave it open to air it our..or put it in a bowl overnight…

Mmm, blueberries, me likey. The pineapple is in the background and the lemongrass just adds a tiny zing at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. It is fairly sweet.
As usual, I have some in the fridge chilling for tomorrow, I will update then!

drank Pom Tango by DAVIDsTEA

I tried to purchase this last spring, but it seemed to be sold out every time I was at my David’s. But, I don’t get it because this doesn’t taste THAT great to me. It’s not like it is Pumpkin Chai or something delicious, but each to their own I guess.
To me, this tastes pretty artificial, and there isn’t much black tea in there. Which I guess is ok if I wanted a lower caffeine black.
Iced, it is marginally better.

I don’t know, maybe I am just falling out of love with DAVIDsTEA a little bit. The artificial flavours are sometimes a little too fake. Or maybe I just love mango too much and I was expecting so much more.

it makes me feel better knowing others don`t like this tea.. it smells wonderful, and i can`t have it because i am allergic to mangoes.. but so many of my friends have raved about it so i def felt like i was missing out!

I am with a few other people on here who say that the base is a little too strong in this one. I found it a little bitter, but that might have been a brewing error. I will have to try it at 2 minutes to see if this is the case or not. I guess I should also try this iced, since it is a spring tea.
In other words, I am not that big of a fan.

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA
767 tasting notes

I braved my grumpy baby today because I needed to get out of the house, I was going crazy. It is finally warming up here in Saskatchewan, so I am stir crazy to finally get out and about!
Anyway….this tea…..I thought it was delicious, I didn’t taste any alcohol like others have mentioned. The creamy vanilla was the most prominent note for sure. The peach doesn’t taste quite as natural as I would like, but it is decent.
I put some of this in the fridge to chill for tomorrow, so I will update tomorrow.

I agree with Kittenna that it’s great to have a herbal offering that isn’t mint, chamomile, hibiscus, or licorice!

UPDATE: I don’t like this iced. I think it tastes super articial this way.

Shared a pot of this with the in laws this morning before brunch and it was a lovely tropical cuppa. I mostly got passion fruit today. The flavour really depends on the chunks of fruit in the spoonful, because the chunks are fairly large. I still really enjoy this one, even though it is finicky. I got it right today though!

This cuppa today was different than any other cup of this tea that I have enjoyed. Today, grape/raisin notes were very prevalent with the jasmine very much in the background. Interesting, I enjoyed it, but was not expecting it at all.

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse, I love to do so many things: reading, card making, scrapbooking, photography, playing with my nieces, shopping, and of course TEA!

I only started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I had a DavidsTea for the first time and have been obsessed ever since! My favourite is probably white but I have black every morning to wake me up! I enjoy most flavours out there! My favourite flavours are nutty, fruity, chocolate, jasmine, tropical.

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.
