This is a great black tea…. Unfortunately lacks Pumpkin & Chai flavor. I do love blending this with sweeter Pumpkin teas, like the Pumpkin Spice Brûlée from Teavana.

One of my all time favourite teas! The blend of sencha green tea and roasted brown rice is perfect for me. It’s nutty, smoky, and earthy — not to mention affordable!

Flavors: Earth, Grass, Nutty, Roasted, Smoke, Umami

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

This is my favourite matcha. It is a vibrant green colour, and it’s very finely milled. It has a high content of antioxidants. Also, a Davidstea tea guide once told me that it has approx 4x the amount of antioxidants that their flavoured ones do. The tea has a very bold and rich flavour. It’s very full bodied and earthy. I think that it really gives me a boost of energy and focus. I often mix it with my flavoured matchas. Even if it’s too much for you to drink straight up, I think it would be a great additive to smoothies and other stuff. I personally put about 1/2 a teaspoon into oatmeal and it’s incredibly delicious.

Flavors: Earth, Grass, Tannic, Umami, Vegetal

This is one of the oldest teas I have. I got it in a boxed set way back when when I first converted from coffee to tea and disliked it immensely when I first tried it. I tried it black then. To me, it tasted of imitation flavours and false perfumey sweetness. Could not understand the huge fan base.

I may have mentioned that I am staying at a friend’s place to escape from baby world here. It feels like I am on vacation. With me, I brought just a skeletal wardrobe of clothing, a medium-sized batch of kitchen gear, and a huge colossus of teas as I had been in the midst of long overdue swap preparation. I was determined to not overthink things—this time—so I threw packets into my bag and then I threw more packets into my bag and then started another bag and threw some more into that one. Came across this one in a collection/assortment arranged in some order likely understood by me at some point, but not quite now. Now or never, I threw it into the bag. Now after all this time, I had a cup, added half and half, and wow.

I’ve had several cups of this now. Quite nice. I just may finish this one up before I move back home.

This tea is pretty good but it doesn’t have enough pumpkin or spice. This is a great morning tea but I wish there was more flavor to it. I sometimes mix this with a bit of chai tea just to give it a stronger chai flavor, I love this tea but I would love for them to just add more spices to it and a stronger pumpkin flavor. It feels like the its black tea with a hint of pumpkin pie.

I love oolongs. My favorite oolong from David’s Tea will always be the Vanilla Orchid, but this is nice too. It has a comforting, slightly sweet, powdered milk flavor to it. I like their Butter Sencha green tea more for a similar, but more complex and sweet, flavor profile.

drank just peachy by David's Tea
736 tasting notes

Only if you like the candy fuzzy peaches. I have a 35g of this and Just Beet It. I have given up on Just Beet It, I just can’t seem to like it. This one dry smells like fuzzy peaches. Steeped in cold water this tastes like the fuzzy peaches sour gummies. Not really what I was looking for but at not horrible enough that I feel the need to spit it out and toss the rest.

Flavors: Peach, Sour

Yeah, I get the same thing from it. Even though I actually like those candies, I don’t like the idea of a tea tasting like it.

Helena

I love those candies too. Not sure I like my tea that way but I only had 35g so I can drink it and be done. I tossed the leftover Just Beet It because I couldn’t make it work for me. Always sad when I can’t enjoy a tea.

Bought this for the sole purpose of making it an iced tea only. I want to find better options for my children over their regular sugar flavoured juices and ice teas. After a few disappointments for them, I was a little worried that this one would not go over so well.

Dried the leaf smells like tangy fruits. Brewed it is a deep red colour with a very sweet fruity aroma. Every sip of the tea is a perfect combination of sweet and tangy. My kids love the lemonade flavour and will often argue about what fruits they taste more.

I guess it is a hit with them too.

Flavors: Fruity, Lemon, Sour, Sweet, Tangy

My favorite Oolong Supreme was not available and so I picked up the Tie Kwan Yin Oolong instead. I don’t like this one as much as the Oolong Supreme but it is good. I find it to be earthier than the Supreme. Also it tastes “roasted” (if that’s even a taste). You can tell this is a decent quality tea.

I still thank the tea god that this made the permanent collection. I remember when I first tried it, it was only seasonal and a pain to get. This is a very nice pumpkin tea.

Is it really? Either way, it’s nice to see that you can pretty much count on them on offering it. It’s so annoying when companies make something amazing but make it LE. LUSH is famous for that. Like damnit, just make sure if it’s that popular already.

Helena

well you can get pumpkin chai anytime now. But when it first came out it LE. Yeah but LUSH isn’t the only company that does that. Just when I fall in love with something it disappears. Vanilla Chai frapps at McDonald’s for instance as they are seasonal. (tastes like Starbucks Vanilla bean frap but cheaper)

Fjellrev

Ah, guess I haven’t noticed it on the tea wall. Awesome then! Oh cool, I didn’t even know that McDonald’s made that. Do they just make it around the holidays?

Oh yeah, for sure many other companies do it. I just especially can’t stand when companies do it when it leads to this craze where people are selling something for 10-15x the price on eBay, especially when that product can easily be remade.

Helena

McDonald’s sells it in the summer months. So in winter I have to buy Starbucks to compensate.

Fjellrev

Oh snap, i see it’s on their site. Maybe I’ll try that tomorrow before it goes away. You are such a bad influence! Haha

Roswell Strange

Actually, Pumpkin Chai is still seasonal…

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Easily my favourite of the DT blends. I’m not saying that just because of the yummy pumpkin but I’ll admit it does help.

Pumpkin and Chai are just made for each other. Pumpkin pie for instance uses many of the same spices as chai. So of course this is a yummy tea. I taste pumpkin and cinnamon.

Yum! Full of pumpkin goodness. I definitely taste the pumpkin coming. I wish the black base tea was better though. But I find places like David’s Tea seem to use the same base so there’s no help for it. Some people would say pumpkin is only for the fall and to that I say “nonsense!” Pumpkin should be all year around.

This is one of my most favourite teas! It has a good kick to it and the flavour is so deep! I love the spice mixed with the chocolate; you can really taste the heat. I drink this tea black, with a splash of milk and as a latte; all ways are great – you really can’t go wrong!

This is a great blend, that I absolutely adore, but I felt like it was so easy to get wrong. The aroma is absolutely amazing and will completely appeal to those who prefer sweet over savoury and anything creamy. However, it smells so good that its all too easy to build up the flavour profile in your mind. Don’t. The taste is similar, but just not as strong, so retain this in mind and you shouldn’t be disappointed. Also, I can’t stress this enough, be so careful with your brewing times and temperatures. It makes such a big difference brewing this at around 70-80 for a shorter time than recommended.

im suprised by how much i like this. i found 50g of this tucked in a corner of my tea cupboard (as opposed to my tea drawer, or tea bin) that i hadnt opened yet. alot of cinnamon flavour, and moderate sweetness that at times gives it a taste kind of like what those mini donuts get dusted in. on hindsight maybe not a good idea to type that when im so hungry. also got a bit of a tomato vine background a couple times as well in the second steeping. this is probably one that i will buy some more of when this mystery bag of it is gone. looking forward to putting some of this in the gaiwan.

The first few tried, I had this hot steeped and I really didn’t like it. It was bitter and burnt, without much of a chocolate or orange flavour.

However, adding hot water to the tea an cold steeping it over night, and then diluting the tea with hot water the next day really helped bring out the chocolate flavour. I did have to scoop out the frozen lipids from the chocolate chip.

The new way of drinking this made it tolerable, but I would not re-order.
