drank Cocoberry by DAVIDsTEA
32 tasting notes

Whoa! I’m really surprised that this tea got such a low rating! I was given a sample of Cocoberry from a friend of mine as it was one that she really enjoyed from DAVIDs Fall Collection. As someone who used to drink a lot of flavored coffees, I knew this would be a tea I would really enjoy.

I could taste and smell coffee and a hint of fruitiness…although I wasn’t sure if it was something like a cherry, strawberry or raspberry. It actually vaguely reminded me of a raspberry truffle flavored coffee I had tried in the past. When I went to check the ingredients of this tea on the DAVIDs website, I couldn’t believe how many things went into making this tea…although I noticed that there WERE cherry and strawberry flavors in it (along will a bazillion other things).

Being a lover of this tea, I’m now caught in a potential conundrum – do I place a DAVIDs order before Friday to get a bag of Cocoberry, or do I wait until Friday hoping that they’ve come out with their Winter Collection? On the other hand, being a tea newbie, I could be wrong and the Fall Collection’s teas may be year-round teas, but I’ve heard otherwise. I just feel that I need EVERY tea…I feel that I’ve quickly turned into an addict.

If you really like this one, I’d put in an order for it sooner rather than later. Once the Winter Collection comes out, it’ll only be stocked as long as they have any left. Once it’s out then it’s out until at least next fall (and that’s if they decide to bring it back – they might not).

Do they mark down the previous seasons collections when a new collection comes out? I noticed that there are web specials with a good percent off of large amounts, but I’m not sure why those teas are reduced…are they discontinued?

Roswell Strange

For the web special teas, some are being discontinued and some are just being featured. It might be best to check with someone who has been drinking tea a bit longer than I have (I’ve been drinking less than a year so haven’t actually watched a full rotation of the seasonal teas), but usually they just keep selling the seasonal teas at their regular price until they run out, from what I’ve observed (if that’s what you mean by mark down). Some seasonal teas are expected to come back because they’re insanely popular (like Pumpkin Chai) – but others don’t come back (basically, they were limited edition). This was the first year Cocoberry was sold, so no idea whether or not it’ll return.

Usually they repackage the leftover tea in 2/$5 bags full of 25g. That’s super cheap, but it depends what the store has leftover. I’m hoping to grab some Friday when I buy the new teas, but it might not be done yet. Sometimes they’ll mark down the specialty tins in store too. If it’s still on the tea wall, they keep still selling it at regular price, even if it’s from a previous season. :(

And I don’t know how often teas come back. :( But maybe they’ll put it as a web special if it wasn’t popular enough and they’re overstocked .

Cavocorax

Also, I really enjoyed this one too! Glad not alone.
You might like Chocolate Rocket too.

I actually really hope it wasn’t popular enough so they consider making it a web special. I’d love to be able to get it before it’s gone, especially for a cheaper price.

I actually have a sample size of Chocolate Rocket, but haven’t gotten around to trying it yet. After your comment, I’m making it next on my list!

Personally, I LOVE Mate teas (as a lifesaver at work because of the high energy and also just for the flavour of the mate itself). The two that I keep stocked from David’s are Main Squeeze and Chocolate Rocket :) Cavocorax is probably right in guessing you’ll love Chocolate Rocket too – it has the same sorta “coffee but not really coffee” thing going on because it uses roasted mate and various things like almonds and chicory, and then has the really nice raspberry flavour to it too. I think it’s also David’s “most populat” Mate blend, too.
