Recent Tasting Notes
I got this tea as a sample with an order from David’s Tea online, and I fell in love with it. I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy it when I first took a whiff, but it’s become one of weekly teas. I like to let it steep for a while to get a strong brew.
Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin
Trying to sip down some teas I need to part with. This one is ok- though chai teas are not my particular favorite. I think I may need to try this one as a latte to give it a fair review. I think my taste buds could still be off from having the flu so I am saving my better straight teas for when I’m feeling back to normal. I made this in my DT tea press and it kept me warm on the way to work…only 9 degrees this am. February & March are such dreary months in my neck of the woods. Hope you all have a great day.
The little glitter stars are super cute in this tea. I tend to like chai teas so I thought I’d try this one. It’s okay. Just okay. Nothing special. I could mostly taste cloves and cinnamon. The black tea faded into the background. Also, surprisingly for a tea with this many spices in it, it was pretty weak as far as I’m concerned. I won’t be repurchasing this one, but it was fine for me to finish my small tin.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Spices
I’ve only tried this hot as a tea and as a tea latte. This is Delicious with a capital D. This tea is the embodiment of fall! Its got pumpkin, a hint of spice, and the brown sugar really makes it taste richer. Take a sip of this and you’ll instantly imagine red leaves falling from the trees as you walk through a long pathway of red, orange, yellow and brown.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Pumpkin, Spices

Very prominent chocolate flavor in this tea, I don’t taste the “chili” part though. It just tastes like chocolate – which is a good flavor, yes, but not sure I love it in my chai. I wish there was more spice to this one. The sweetness of the chocolate would be enhanced with a spice.
Cold steeped this in the fridge a few days ago. This is really good cold! I still taste a bright fruit, peach or lychee like at the beginning of the sip. It then goes into a strong floral like rose, but with the bite that jasmine can get. The aftertaste has an immediate green bite, then fades into a floral. This reminds me a little of a Fauchon tea that I really liked iced in the summer. Not quite as well balanced, but a good close second. I bet this would be really good as a sweet tea or with a little cream!
Update: I just read that this has hibiscus in it! I’m super happy to say that I didn’t detect any at all!
Sample from an order! This smells really fruity. It reminds me of Lupicia’s Momoko peach. It has a similar bright fruity taste too and then the jasmine kicks in. The mix of jasmine and peach is really interesting. I can see this being a spectacular iced tea in the summer!
Oolongs are my fave. This tea is delicious creamy buttery goodness. Enjoyed my resteeped cups just as much. Very warm & comforting…a treat to come home to after a long day! Savor and re-steep..it changes with each steep and is quite lovely.
Flavors: Butter, Cream, Floral, Sweet, warm grass, Vegetal
Nice tea, may have steeped too long as it was a tad bitter on the end of the sip, but I was multitasking and cooking dinner, haha. Not overly sweet, but enough that I was able to drink it black. I typically lean towards sweeter teas, or herbal caffeine free teas, but this was a nice change. Just enough caffeine that as a law student I can drink a cup at night and power through my reading without being up for hours on end. Didn’t taste a lot of pumpkin, but I only had one cup, so may be different if I get a different combo of leaves. Overall, really pleasant, low caffeine option that I will be adding to my collection. Not something I would choose to drink everyday, but great, nonetheless.
Mixed feelings on this travel mug so far. I haven’t had it for long, so my feelings may change come summertime when I’m drinking more iced teas. This is the same design as the David’s Iced Tea Press, but it has a steel exterior chamber instead of plastic. The inner chamber is plastic on both models. This version is advertised more for hot tea enjoyment from what I’m gathering. I like the idea that I can steep and ice in the same thermos. If you aren’t familiar, put your hot water and tea in the outer chamber and let it steep while you fill the inner chamber with ice, submerging once the tea has properly steeped. With hot tea you are pressing the tea to the bottom of the outer chamber, but it doesn’t seem like it’s enough to compress the tea and stop it from over steeping, so I’m kind of meh on it for hot tea.
The biggest thing I don’t like about it is the lid. This is a HUGE flaw in my book and one that I’ve seen David’s get wrong on several different designs. On this one, the lid does flip back enough for you to comfortably get your mouth on the thing (unlike other designs) and it has a big enough opening that the tea has room to come out in proper sips not trickles (again, unlike other designs), but the lid is SO easy to flip up and open that I can’t fathom how this could be a travel anything. I wouldn’t dare put this in a bag or anywhere it is going to get bumped for fear of bathing all my belongings in tea that has instantly transformed into sadness. I can safely carry it in my hand and that is it. Another thing I find irritating about David’s travel mugs in general is that the lids aren’t interchangeable. I can’t take the lid off any other David’s travel mug and put it on this one to fix the issue. It would be AMAZING if they were interchangeable and you could mix and match lids and bases to get your perfect tea traveling companion. They need a frankenmug line!

I tried it black at first, and it was pretty bitter, but it wasn’t so bad when i added milk and sugar. I dunno, I don’t really drink much earl grey. I’d probably drink it again (with milk and sugar) if I was offered some, but i wouldn’t go out of my way for some more of this tea.
