I’m a pretty big fan of this tea. It’s not a super strong, overwhelming fruity tea, but I enjoy it.

This is my absolute favourite tea ever. I’ve managed to hoard a couple bags of it. My favourite way to prep it is poured over ice with lemon extract. Hope to see it return some day.

drank Orange Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA
208 tasting notes

This one sounded really good, so I got it to go today. It’s not bad, it has a nice orangey taste but it definitely needed sweetener. It also sort of does remind me of orange juice. Orange juice with a slight passion fruit flavour. I like it, but it’s not a huge favourite.

Flavors: Orange, Passion Fruits

All I can think of when I drink this one is Five Alive :P

This tea is really good! It smells so orangey and refreshing omg. The tea is really smooth, orangey with that slight hint of passionfruit.

A lot like electric lemonade. I usually would prefer teas without strawberries in them, but this one is pretty good.

Not too much going on…just a little spice. Unobjectionable.

Am I the only one who’s really into this tea? Today was my first time trying it hot, and it was definitely not what I was expecting. This tea had been sitting in my cupboard untouched since it came out because I was so apprehensive about ginger being the first ingredient, but lo and behold, I can hardly taste the ginger! The ginger taste that I do get is very fresh and sweet, pairing well with the tartness of the grapefruit. I don’t taste any green tea at all, but the tea is somewhat astringent. While I likely won’t be reaching for this one very often, I’m glad that it’s not the overwhelming disappointment I was expecting.

Flavors: Cream, Ginger, Grapefruit

Have you tried the new grapefruit tea yet? Personally I prefer the new one to this one, but if you liked this you’ll probably like the new one too! It’s called Grapefruit Squeeze :)

I disappointed in this tea :( I was really looking forward to trying it but, I’m not a fan. It’s pleasantly tart but left an awful taste in the back of my throat. Bummer.

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

The description sounds divine, the scent was amazing. This was actually the tea that I wanted to try so badly that I bought the Advent Calendar. It was a huge letdown for me – it was weak and not at all chocolate-y and doesn’t hold a light next to my much loved TWG Chocolate Earl Grey.

To be fair though, it wasn’t “offensive” like DT’s English Toffee. It was just…pu’erh that smelled like hot chocolate. So glad I didn’t order 50g!

Out of all of the chocolate teas I got from David’s Tea, this one has to be my favourite. I’m not sure that says a great deal as I really loathed the others, but this one can be comforting when made with almond milk. The ingredients in this tea masked the alcohol taste that comes with the (dark) chocolate chips from this tea company. I certainly wouldn’t stock up again though.

I steeped this a little longer to ensure that the chips melted.

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

When I ran out of jumpy monkey from (2014) my Advent Calendar, I moved onto coffee cake. It smells like caramel and coffee cake, and it was wonderful with milk. I found this black tea to be comforting and I was grateful to have asked for this as a sample for all of my Christmas orders.

When I finished the sample, I went ahead and got another 100g. Although I do see bits of pineapple in it, I can’t taste it in the actual tea. I suspect that it may be because it has been candied within an inch of its life, and melted during the steep.

Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Maple

I really disliked this tea with full cream milk. It had the same issue as English Toffee – smelling divine, but steeped in disappointment. I had varied my steeping time but that did not eradicate the taste of alcohol that permeated the tea.

That is, until I added Silk (0g sugar) almond milk. The almond milk thickened the tea, and perhaps added the almond flavour that it was desperately lacking. It went from unbearable to not bad.

I loved the sample of this in the 2016 Advent Calendar, and bought myself 100g. This is a stimulant, so I usually save it for days when I really need the caffeine but couldn’t get my hands on a good cup of coffee. This tea has a comforting effect and satisfy my coffee cravings.

I usually drink this with a bit of almond milk to thicken it, otherwise, it tastes much too much like a weak cup of coffee.

Of all of the 24 teas in the advent calendar, this is one of the few that stood out for me. I loved the scent of this one – rich, buttery, caramel-y. Whereas a lot of David’s Teas tended to have a better aroma than test, the taste measures up well enough for this one.

I liked this one plain with no milk. It was a great way to end a heavy (carb-laden) meal, when you just can’t have a real dessert, and on rainy days when you want something light but comforting.

drank Ginger Pear by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

The ginger taste is overpowering on this one, so flavour of the pear isn’t really discernible. I loved this when I had a cold or sore throat. It’s extremely soothing and I think it’d be amazing with a touch of honey.

The cost made me lower its score – there’s not a lot of white tea in there.

drank English Toffee by DAVIDsTEA
16 tasting notes

Along with the orange chocolate pu’er, English toffee was high on my “must try” list. Three things made me gift this tea to a friend (who loved it): the lack of a toffee taste, the film of oil at the top (which is especially disgusting since I put milk in it), and the alcoholic aftertaste. It’s like having Bailey’s Irish cream without the cream, the sweetness and just…alcohol.

One thing to note is that it smells DIVINE. And it tastes nothing like the way it smells! That probably made it an even bigger let down in my books.

reviewed Matcha Maker by DAVIDsTEA

Had mine for over and year and I love it!
Only problem is that the powder gets stuck all the time and never dissolves properly..
I follow the directions exactly. Water NEVER above the line and sometimes even use less than the 1/2 tsp of macha powder.
The only problem I am facing now is that the pressure button came apart from the rest of the lid this morning.. :(
I can still use it though. I am waiting to hear back from David’s Tea regarding this issue…

drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

I tried this when I ordered the 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar (from 2016). I was surprised at how much I liked it – it tasted like After Eight in liquid form to me. (I have been cutting down sugar, so that may be why this tasted so sweet to me.)

I had it with quite a bit of milk – I’d say about 1-2oz. This was definitely one of the few David’s Tea that I liked from the Advent Calendar. I even bought more during the sale.

Flavors: Peppermint, White Chocolate

I was hesitant to try this tea because of the coconut, but the rest of the ingredients sounded good so I got an iced cup to go anyway. I definitely taste the coconut… Which I don’t like too much but there are other fruity flavours there too, which makes it better for me. I really don’t know why they would put coconut in this, it has nothing to do with Canada… I added agave to make it good enough but overall I am not too sure whether I’d buy any. It’s not bad, but it’s not the best either…
