I bought this tea just to have something different and light for the summer. I have not been disappointed! It is light, slightly sweet and very refreshing! It is okay hot but amazing iced!

I didn’t care for this tea. Wasn’t for my tastes. I gave the rest to a friend.

drank just peachy by David's Tea
14 tasting notes

Make an iced preparation. I like they peachy flavor but there’s some sort of aftertaste that lingers. There isn’t any artificial sweetener in it which I would normally blame for that taste. Not sure of the source. Maybe I brewed the tea too strong? Followed the recommendation to brew a single serve packet of this tea.

the ingredients on my container and on the site are listed as Organic: Black tea, marigolds. With cornflowers and natural flavouring. THERE IS NO BERGAMOT in this. So IDK why they call it an earl grey since the whole concept of earl grey is black tea with bergamot. It tastes like melted ice cream with a weird pepto bismol aftertaste. I couldn’t even finish the cup it was that bad. Simply gross.

Had it hot and it was pretty good. The chocolate wasn’t overwhelming.

drank Monk's Blend by David's Tea
96 tasting notes

I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed this tea before, given how good it tastes!

I finally got my tea cupboard moved over to our new apartment after being almost an entire year without it!! So when I was thirsty on this warm spring evening, I went for my tea! So exciting!

I’ve got another white tea brewing for iced tea, and since I still had enough water in my kettle for a cup, why wait?

I’m here because the first sip was so good! I needed to let y’all know. It’s sweet by itself, though I added sweetener to it. (I’ve been so long without tea, I’ll have to retrain my taste buds.) There’s that lovely jasmine vanilla flavor, with lingering rose and apple… this is just the first steep.

The second steep continued the strong flavor of creamy jasmine and rose.

By the third steep, the added flavor had washed out so I could more enjoy the green tea and oolong’s own flavor—smooth, not too vegetal. It’d be a great blend without the added flavor, so it’s even more yummy with it! :)

Flavors: Apple, Creamy, Jasmine, Rose, Vanilla

A great green and white blend. Very light and fresh, and the floral notes are not at all overpowering.

Will try it iced with lemon and honey and post back.

drank Genmaicha by David's Tea
2035 tasting notes

128/365

At first glance, this genmaicha appears to have a much higher proportion of toasted rice than most of those I’ve tried before. As a proportion, I’d say it’s at least 60:40, maybe heading towards 70:30. That seems unusual to me, unless I just got a batch that wasn’t very evenly distributed. I’m not complaining, though – since I’m not a huge green tea fan, this could actually be a good thing!

The flavour, as you might expect given what I’ve just said, is mostly toasted rice. It’s pretty much exactly like sugar puffs, which is an epithet I’ve heard applied to genmaicha regularly, but one which I’ve never really agreed with or experienced myself. It’s perfectly true and accurate in this case, right down to the lingering sugary sweetness in the aftertaste. The green tea base is just about there in the background, adding a touch of grassy smoothness. Mostly, though, it’s fairly innocuous.

I’m glad I tried this one, since it’s a little different to other genmaicha blends I’ve tried even though it’s just plain and unflavoured. It’s one of those rare ones that I could happily drink pretty regularly, just for the simple joy of it.

Their Genmaicha does tend to have a lot more rice puffs than tea in the mix.

If you like dessert teas and are a fan of pistachio ice cream, this tea will do the trick! You can use either frothed milk or (as I do) for low carb decadence and truly a post-meal treat… a dollop of whipped cream.

Blech, the stevia makes this taste nasty. It smelled great and chocolate-y, though.

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea
912 tasting notes

I’m liking this tea. I don’t know that it really delivers on the promise of chai, but it has a convincing pumpkin flavor along with the accompanying spices. I’m getting more cinnamon out of it this time, but I drank it too fast to analyze it more. The resteep is a little week.

Very cinnamony – and very sweet. I adore cinnamon and I love chai, but this isn’t my favorite way to enjoy these flavors. This was a sample – I won’t be purchasing.

drank Buddha's Blend by David's Tea

(Western style) Not very good hot, preferred iced but still not great. Go gentle on this tea because it is not forgiving and will release plenty of bitterness

Flavors: Astringent, Mint, Pear, Sour

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.

I love spearmint, the smell, the taste – all of it! This tisane is spearmint, that’s enough for me, I am happy sipping this while watching the Olympics. I added a drop of monk fruit sweetener – even better!
