I needed a chocolate fix today, but it needed to be low calorie. And I was craving this tea because I haven’t even had it again since I restocked. This fit the bill for sure today!! Sweet and chocolatey with that little hint of coconut.

This tea puts me back up to 200 teas….so much for being under 200! I knew it wouldn’t last too long!
And this is tasting note 750!!!!

I really enjoyed the combination of coconut and mint with the black tea, but I found there to be a bitter aftertaste. What is it with me incorrectly brewing blacks lately?
My bad, I will try to brew this for less time and at a lower temp.

Hmmmm, I must be doing something wrong. I brewed this up with boiling water, which maybe was too hot because this was super bitter. Maybe I should shorten the steep time as well.
No rating for now

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!

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!

tigress_al

Don’t worry about it, there are MUCH better teas out there!!

Aimee Popovacki

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.
