drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

A warm cinnamony fruit punch that’s quite a joy to sip. The main three flavours (cinnamon, coconut, apple) blend in such a way that none overpower the other. I’ve found that rooibos teas have an extra smoothness or creaminess to them and that quality is very detectable here. Light, fruity, smooth and not too sweet, this is a definite rooibos favourite.

What a pleasant surprise! I have never been a fan of straight black tea but this has changed my mind. This does not have the heavy malt, astringent, bitter taste a lot of other black teas have. This one is mellow, gentle, and softly sweet. It is helped along considerably by a little added sweetener like agave, but only modestly. Some of the dry tea leaves have golden tips which makes it beautiful looking, too!

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

The master of subtle yet delicious black tea. Cloves and lemon peel are the main flavours, but remain subdued enough to let the black tea shine through. This manages to be somewhere between a straight tea and a decadent dessert tea, perfect for relaxation. The sparkly gold sprinkles are super cute and give the dry tea a fun look.

drank Mango Madness by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

A delicate white tea that tastes very similar to a tropical fruit punch. The flavours are all mellowed, of course, but all the main fruits are easily detectable. I wouldn’t say mango is the major player here; it equally shares the spotlight with pineapple and orange. Not too bold, not too sweet, it makes an enjoyably refreshing cup of fruit tea.

Wooo, ginger explosion! This tea has a strong ginger flavour that hits you both up front and as a dull burn aftertaste. In between are mellow notes of citrus to lighten the load. Adding any sort of sweetener made this spacey tea quite unpleasant and I would not recommend doing so. Overall a very zesty and invigorating selection for all those long tiring days.

This is as close to coffee as it gets, folks. I am not a coffee drinker so I was sceptical going into this, but the flavours work very successfully as a tea. A powerful coffee bean flavour dominates, helped along with more subtle notes of cinnamon. The flavour isn’t complex so much as bold. Quite delicious and rich, this would go well with many desserts.

The tartest tea I’ve tried, and yet a very fun, pleasant experience. The tartness becomes enjoyable if sweetened a bit, adding a strong kick to an otherwise mellow berry tea. Hibiscus takes the main stage, so a warning to anyone who dislikes hibiscus. This would be an excellent addition to a fruit punch or any other summery concoction. Bold and fun!

drank Jungle Ju Ju by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

A musky fruity blend with plenty of exotic notes. It tastes like many different gourds and jungle fruits got together in a rich concoction that goes down strong. This is not your typical light, zesty fruit tea. A bit too exotic for my taste, but not an unpleasant tea at all.

Very accurately named! This smells and tastes exactly as it claims. The cranberry and orange are made more dessertlike by the presence of rich cinnamon and other spices that mull down the tartness. The initial sip is fruity, with a decadent aftertaste of bakery goods. A perfect flavour for fall and arguably the best member of the fall collection, second perhaps to pumpkin chai.

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA
31 tasting notes

A deliciously soft apple tea. I’m used to apple being almost always paired with a heavy spice like cinnamon, so seeing it shine on its own is a real treat. It’s sweet apple goodness all the way through, just lightly sweet enough to give it a hint of candy tones. Gentle, subdued, fresh apple tea with no other flavours to compete with!
