Got this from the ‘christmas treats’ sampler. Meh, it’s ok, I’ll have the other half of it another time, but it’s not going on my list to buy.

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea
259 tasting notes

I only noticed this month that DavidsTea now has this available on their website. Two years ago when I first tried it, it was only seasonal, so by the time I tried it, I couldn’t get anymore of it. Haha, but i just got a good 12oz of it! My goodness, I hope I can finish that. I have noticed that for these teas though I tend to need much more leaf than I do for other company’s teas. I’ll brew this at 1.5-2tsp/12oz, but I still brew it for 3 min, because that’s just become my default these last few months, for anything that’s not like puerh or green.

But yes, hmm, I do really enjoy this one. I’ve gone away from alot of chai teas, but this one is really well balanced and mild. The pumpkin really comes through more in scent than in flavor for me, but that’s enough. The black base is, as mentioned, weaker than I expect for a normal black base, but it’s good enough if I don’t overbrew it. It fades out very quickly though, I don’t expect more than a 2nd weak steep from it. After that its just colored water.

I’ve discovered the tea community on Youtube, which just encourages me to buy things, which was why I kind of distanced myself from Steepster, but eh, whatever. I’ve missed you all.

On another note, I pretty much only know this tea and the Jasmine Black Pearls from David’s, and I’ve discovered that there’s a location I can get to with a little more than a half hr’s drive. I don’t need anymore tea or teawear, but their designs are soo cute! What are your favorites/recommendations? :) I’ve heard some good things about the Iced Tea Press, but idk, I trust Steepster’s opinions more. hehe.

This tea smells delicious and tastes great! I’ve drank it both hot and cold. It is good both ways, but I prefer it hot! Drinking it as an iced tea I felt muted the flavor a little. Which might be from the ice watering it down! I definately will be trying it with champagne this summer

Flavors: Apple, Citrusy, Peach

I really enjoyed this tea at first, but after a while I found without lots of honey or agave I couldn’t enjoy it. It had a dry, dusty flavor. I tried steeping it different lengths of time, different strengths. Just couldn’t keep myself liking it

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea

Hmmm, I taste neither pumpkin nor any kind of spicy chai-ness in this tea.

You know those country themed stores that sell signs made of burlap with the words Peace, Love, Family on them? They sell candles that smell like blueberry muffins and sugar cookies? That’s what this tea tastes like to me.

The dominating flavor is fake butter with cinnamon, clove, and brown sugar. It’s JUST like those candles.

The base has a bit of that malty black flavor.

Hmm…not for me I think.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I was disappointed when I first had this one too. It’s just not at all what I expected.

drank Cherry Blossom by David's Tea
1176 tasting notes

I had a free tea coupon, so I tried this iced.

I’m not sure how much I would enjoy it hot, but it was very pleasant iced. The predominant flavour was tart cherry, vegetal white tea (Bai mu dan maybe?) it was definitely suggestive of green tea, and overall fruitiness. Having it iced meant that the vegetal and tart aspects were very much subdued, so I really liked the overall flavour.

Flavors: Cherry, Fruity, Tart

This tea was meh. Just meh. I wasn’t overly impressed with it at all and don’t understand the hype. I tried it because of unrelenting recommendations from friends. I’ve tried it hot, hot with agave, and as a hot latte and still am not much of a fan. It’s too much sweetness without any real flavour for my taste. I won’t be repurchasing this and am glad the 50 g bag I got is now gone as it took me months to finish it.

Flavors: Sugar, Sweet

I didn’t get much spice or hotness from this at all! It had a rather muddied flavor, a bit bitter and a tiny bit of chai spice. There was a tiny tingle but I probably wouldn’t have even noticed it had I not been expecting it.It was drinkable but I had no desire at all to ever have it again. I was pretty disappointed after all the great reviews!

Eh.
Quite honestly I am a bit underwhelmed by this tea. After reading the reviews I was expecting a creamy, rich treat. What I actually got was a pretty blah cup of rooibos with some vanilla. Not detecting the cream, hint of maple, or strong cake flavor. Cloying with no depth
It’s fine for when I want something warm at night I suppose, but it’s nothing really to write home about.

Flavors: Rooibos, Vanilla

drank Birthday Cake by David's Tea

Some friends got me this for my birthday last spring, and then I didn’t see them until November, and this is the first time I’m having the tea.

It IS tasty, but whoa nelly, that is SWEET. I only usually put sugar/honey/maple into some herbal teas, or lapsang souchong.

This is more of an occasional tea, I think. But it is nice, and they also gave me one of those super cute cupcake tea infusers. :)

200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I’m not sure if I have had this one solo before. I usually drink it with equal parts Coffee Puer and it’s perfect! Very tiramisu like.

OMGsrsly

Huh. I bet that would be good, although I am not a huge fan of coffee flavoured tea. Maybe I’ll try steeping some in coffee. :D

Dustin

Oh! I’d be interested to hear how it goes!

Still on the fence about this one. I thought I would hate it as I’m not much for dessert teas, but it’s not bad. Strong maple and vanilla flavours. The maple is what’s throwing me off because I personally hate maple anything, but I’m still drinking this..

Flavors: Caramel, Maple, Vanilla
