drank White Chocolate Chai by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

I have been getting more and more into the chai flavor recently and this tea really hit the spot.
I had all the flavors I wanted with a chai, cinnamon, cardamon, cloves and a little bit of ginger, and as a bonus it had a wonderful chocolate taste to it.
The white chocolate did not overwhelm or take over the flavor of the chai, it just added a nice chocolate sweetness to it.
I would still recommend this tea if you don’t like white chocolate because I feel like the white chocolate makes the chai flavors come out in such a way you only get a lighter more traditional chocolate taste, with the bonus of a little extra creaminess.

It was not too sweet as I was expecting it may be, because when I think white chocolate I normally think too sweet.

I plan to not only continue to drink this blend often but it has inspired me to branch out and look for more chocolate chai teas.

drank Cookie Dough by David's Tea
37 tasting notes

I was excited and I was let down… slightly.
I was promised cookie dough, when I think of cookie dough I think of sweet, chocolaty, buttery pre-baked goodness.
Brewed the smell is yummy, like when the cookie dough first starts to almost melt in the oven. However when I tasted it, I did not get that cookie dough taste, I got a lot of the strong white tea taste. I can get a slight chocolate aftertaste, and a little nutty flavor, but I do not get a cookie dough flavor. It was really lacking a sweetness for me.
I do enjoy teas that have that more traditional white tea flavor and are not clouded with other ingredients to make it taste like a dessert, so I did overall enjoy this cup of tea.
My problem was it just did not taste as described or what I wanted in that moment. I wanted a dessert tea, something sweet and creamy and now I just want to go get some cookie dough out of the freezer.

drank Apple Custard by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

Custard is one of those flavors that I enjoy quite a bit, but can never have too much of because I find it really rich.
This tea was a great solution to that, I found it to probably have the best creaminess I’ve ever had in a tea. I could taste the apple, which was surprisingly strong.
The custard flavor was light and creamy but not so rich that I wouldn’t enjoy this tea often. It does not require any kind of sweetener or milk in my opinion.
My critique may be that this tea has a very light and subtle flavor, so while I taste the wonderful custard and the apples, It could be enhanced with an even stronger flavor.
I will be enjoying this tea often and most likely will purchase more with my next online order.

Flavors: Apple, Cream, Custard

drank Movie Night by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

This tea was a buttery delight.
The tea was sweet and buttery and tasted just like popcorn! It has a nice caramel taste in the background.
The green tea taste is not really present in the tea, which I guess is a good thing because I can’t imagine it would taste as good with that green tea taste.
As much as I very enjoy this tea it is almost too buttery for me, so I sip it very slowly. So in the future this tea for me will be like a nice treat rather than a tea to sip while doing work.
I could surely see myself enjoying this tea during the next movie night I have with my boyfriend.

Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Popcorn

drank Monster Mash by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

The smell of this tea is comforting.
It smells like a lot of very fall things, from a pumpkin candle, to a pumpkin pie baking in the oven.
I can taste the pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and just general fall, if that was a taste. The blend was smooth, and the spices where not overwhelming. I get a slight hint of apple in the background as well.
Overall it was a very nice tea, I just think it would be much better as a latte or even with some sort of honey or agave, or maybe maple syrup.
This is a shorter review because I feel the tea was exactly as described, it was well balanced and had a nice aftertaste.
I am just missing that one thing that makes me feel like it is a tea I want to drink everyday all the time… what that is, I am unsure.

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

This tea was a creamy delight. From the peanut butter smell to the smooth taste. I very much enjoyed this tea.
I tasted the peanut butter, a little bit of chocolate. It was not a peanut taste, it was definitely a peanut butter taste and that is strange because I had always considered the flavors to be very similar but after tasting this tea, I feel like I can understand the complexities of the difference between peanuts and peanut butter.
I would say I taste less chocolate than in a traditional peanut butter cup, but I would not change that about the tea.
I am still learning about teas however I was surprised this was an herbal blend. It had a lighter taste than a black tea would have, I think it really brought out the peanut butter without weighing down the tea.

This is a tea I hope to enjoy for a long time.

Flavors: Chocolate, Creamy, Peanut

drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

After reading the description of this tea, I was excited. It looks cute has all the flavors I love and a clever name.
I was not disappointed, the flavors of peppermint, chocolate and the black tea. What I liked about tasting the black tea within the flavors is it made it feel less like a dessert tea and more like a nice flavored black tea. I am very glad it has dark chocolate chips rather than milk chocolate, it complements the black tea flavor. The flavors are present but not overwhelming. It is still a rather sweet tea however.
As much as I love the ascetics of the red lip sprinkles, I would be okay without them in the tea. It is still a brilliant brew none the less. One I plan to enjoy for many more nights… perhaps as a latte.

Flavors: Chocolate, Mint, Peppermint, Sugar

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

I enjoyed this tea overall, but the flavor of the cardamom and the cinnamon lingered in my mouth for too long after.
I had a difficult time deciding how to review this tea because when you sip it, it has a beautiful flavor that can surely compare to that of french toast. I can taste the baked buttery bread, the sugar and of course the cinnamon and cardamon. After however, I just had this taste of pure cinnamon and cardamon in my mouth. It is very possible that I simply had too much of the cinnamon and cardamon when I was brewing it and another cup might be different.

While I do enjoy cinnamon as a flavor, as well as cardamon, it was too much for me for an aftertaste.
While this is a tea I may not be purchasing large quantities of, I would still enjoy it if I had a sample package or if I got a few individual bags because as I said the flavor of the tea itself is wonderful.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Brown Sugar, Cardamon, Cinnamon

drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
37 tasting notes

This deliciously scented tea brings all the flavors you want in a flavored black tea blend.
From when I opened the tin to when I brewed my first cup and on to my first sip, the mint and chocolate came through. The mint is a very natural and gentle taste, that does not compete with the black tea but comes through with perfect harmony. While the chocolate is stronger in smell than taste, it is most certainly present and is not too sweet or overpowering, just a subtle chocolate flavor.

Most of the chocolate teas I have tried have actual chocolate chips in them, while in this tea chocolate extract is used. While chocolate chips add a creaminess to the tea, the use of chocolate extract allows for a more pure chocolate taste and a more sophisticated overall taste in the tea.

I would recommend this tea to anyone who likes mint or chocolate but also those who are a fan of peppermint teas and are looking to branch out. While the flavor of the black tea is most certainly present, the mint comes through enough for a stronger mint tea taste.

Flavors: Chocolate, Mint

drank S’mores Chai by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

The smell of this tea before brewing will take you back to happy campfire days!

I will admit it… I bought this tea because it was new and the idea of tea that taste like s’mores is amazing.
Once steeped, the smell is still delicious but changes from pure s’mores to more of a rustic fall time chocolate smell… still very nice. The taste is not as strong of a s’mores smell as I was originally hoping for. I definitely get a chocolaty chai taste with hints of graham crackers and an almost smokey taste that you would get from a roasted marshmallow. Instead of a straight marshmallow taste I get more of a nice subtle creaminess.
This tea has some nice sweetness too it, but enough flavors with the sweetness that cut in and prevent it from becoming too sweet. I prefer it at a warmer temperature rather than hot, the flavors are stronger in my opinion.

To me this is the perfect tea to bring me from summer campfires to fall walks in the park.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cream, Graham Cracker, Sweet, Toasty
