Hello Pumpkin Pie!
Loving this sweet and bold blend. It smells like pumpkin pie spice and tastes even better! Not artificial tasting, but balanced with notes of caramel, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Goodbye Starbucks pumpkin spice latte, hello Pumpkin Chai!

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Clove, Molasses, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor, Nutmeg, White Chocolate

This is what I call “my cup of zen”

One of the rare teas in my cupboard that smells incredible and surprisingly tastes even better. It’s a delicate white tea with hints of jasmine, hibiscus, and a field of flowers. It has a light sweetness, strong aroma, and balanced flavor. Floral without being too perfumey. Each flavor becomes more pronounced with each sip. It’s like a bouquet of flavors and aromas that slowly blooms over the course of drinking. Beautiful and refreshing

Flavors: Floral, Hibiscus, Jasmine, Rosehips

I bought a tin of this a while ago without evening sampling it first. I took a gamble and assumed I would like this tea based on the fact that its a rooibos blend. Plus it has sprinkles. Realistically how bad can a tea that has sprinkles in it be? Needless to say I ended up really liking this tea. However more recently I decided one day to try it as a tea latte.
Mind. Blown.
Hands down it tastes amazing as a latte. I’ve been drinking it like this ever since and have never looked back since.
I was a bit skeptical at first adding dairy to rooibos because I don’t think I’ve added dairy to herbal teas before? Nevertheless it tastes delicious and will be the only way I’ll drink it from now on.

This tea smell’s divine. I love the smell. You can smell the pumpkin and the spices. The flavour was good, there was a subtle pumpkin taste with a stronger chai tea taste. My final thoughts: It is a good evening tea.

One of those teas that I can’t live without! It’s spicy and smooth. The pumpkin spice flavour is excellent. I always stock up with 400 grams or more every fall when it is back in stock to last me the year. Makes a wonderful latte! One of my many favourite things about fall.

This is the only milk oolong i’ve ever tried but I sure do love it! The creaminess it gives without any added flavors is amazing. This is my go-to when I just want a clean flavor.

I love serving this to non-tea drinkers. They are so confused where the creaminess is coming from. All natural baby! I can’t wait to try other milk oolongs to compare :)

Full disclosure: on it’s own this tea is not a 90%. It is kind of a boring vanilla rooibos, a little sweet but not remarkable.
HOWEVER I am going to tell you a wonderful tea secret that might change your mind about this tea if you have tried it before and been unimpressed:
If you like to drink teas latte style; this tea blends with almost any herbal or black tea perfectly and takes the drink to a whole new level.
I am very fond of blending it with dessert-y herbals, iced OR hot. I sub like 1 scoop of it in for a travel mug and two for a pot. It adds a taste of creamy vanilla that blends really well with the macadamia milk I use for lattes.

Such an amazing tea!
I love the dessert teas.
The only thing I don’t like about this tea is how the little slices of tea escape out of my filter/tea cup/bag and end up floating around in my cup of tea…bleh!

In fairness, I’ve never had a genmaicha tea before now, and it may just not be my thing. But I really disliked this! If you remember puffed wheat cereal, it had a very particular scent that I get from this tea. (Oddly, it’s the puffed wheat scent, not the puffed rice scent to me.) And it definitely smells like popcorn. The brew really just tastes like slightly nutty boiled water. I can see how if I were a peasant trying to stretch my tea supply, this could work. But, well, I’m not. So I’ll be getting other stuff from here on out!

drank Cherry Blossom by David's Tea
81 tasting notes

I received this tea courtesy of a colleague from her 24 days of tea calendar. I guess she found the smell off-putting, but I quite like it. The cherry aroma is very vibrant and it has a nice chocolatey smell even though there’s no chocolate ingredients listed. Brewed up the rosebuds provide more of a floral aroma although the flavour remains prominently cherry. There’s a delicateness from the white and green tea blend that is quite pleasant.

Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Flowers

I can’t use the sliders to rate and specify steeping conditions bcos I’m on mobile but I loved this tea! I’m seeing mixed reviews on here, so clearly it is not everyone’s “cup of tea” so to speak, but I’d definitely recommend it to try! It’s a smooth green tea with earthy flavours from the toasted rice. I find it very comforting and easy to enjoy. I re-steeped it and it was just as great the second time! I was having a rough day when I tried this tea, and it was very nice to have such a nice tea to calm me down.

I got the David’s Tea Advent Calendar and have enjoyed Day 1 , 2 & 4 but Day 3 the Genmaicha smelled like dirty socks and tasted just as bad … This is from a person that knows not to judge taste with smell , ie. Grated Parmesan Cheese smells bad but tastes great . However Genmaicha smells bad & tastes bad … I have other green teas in my pantry that I drink often so it can’t be the category of tea

David’s Tea Advent Calendar Day 3.

No. Just no. I don’t care for green teas. They taste rather like glass clippings that have sat out in a hot sun after a rain. I would never ordered this, but since it was part of the advent calendar I decided to give it a try. You don’t know if you don’t try, right?

I tried it. That is all.

I am not giving this one a rating because I don’t think it’s fair. I don’t like green teas. But this might be a superb tea for those who do enjoy green tea.

I’m definitely with you there on green teas. While I love genmaicha and a few strongly flavoured greens, I find most are really stemy/grassy and/or astringent and bitter. I feel like green tea is the outlier in that even yellow and most white teas still have that “tea” flavour, but greens for some reason are a completely different entity.

Third day of the advent calander

I…don’t like Genmaicha as a general rule, so I’m not a good judge of this. That said, I don’t dislike it as much as I’ve disliked some others. I wouldn’t buy a bag of it though.

At first I wasn’t sure about this tea. I definitely don’t like the smell of it once it is steeped but the taste is amazing! It’s not my go to green tea but it’s definitely up there. It has more of a smokey taste which I don’t mind every once and a while.

Preparation

It’s been a long time since I had this tea.
I never LOVEd it, but after some time apart it’s delicious!
Also I will have a late night tonight. I have a lot of office work to get done.
I’ve also spent way too much time listening to the Sword and Stone podcast. Procrastination capital P.

Sample from Hoálatha

Work tea note: “Sweet, nutty, spicy (nutmeg), vanilla, and rooibos. Kind of artificial, but nothing too terrible; the good type of artificial. Cold at work, so this is nice.”

Flavors: Nutmeg, Rooibos, Spices, Sweet, Vanilla
