I just hit Nirvana with this tea, it is incredible! The liquor is a pale amber and the smell is just wonderful and the taste is truly beautiful. This is the first time I have experienced a white tea and coupled with jasmine I must say they compliment each other quite well. This will be a staple at my home

At first I really enjoyed the earthy mint flavour. It’s not overwhelming mint. After a few cups I’ve now tasted ginger or liquorice and it isn’t something I would buy again. I’d recommend it for those who love mint and ginger. It is a well made tea but it’s not to my taste.

Flavors: Earth, Ginger, Licorice, Mint

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA
13 tasting notes

Extremely earthy for having so much chocolate listed in the ingredients. I taste very little chocolate and instead the chocolate seems to give it a creamy, earthy flavour. Let this one steep for a long time otherwise you’ll taste dirt. Once it steeps for an absurd amount of time (15 minutes plus) you can finally taste chocolate. I expected this to be sweet and it isn’t. Even though my expectations were totally false, this is still a good tea. Just don’t expect to be drinking liquid chocolate.

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

I really like this tea for so many reasons, it’s caffeine- free, it has no calories which I just can’t believe because this is just so damn decadent and the smell is HEAVENLY!

The first cup I had was just with water and it was great however the second cup I added almond milk and half a teaspoon of sugar and and it turned the tea from great to flippin fantastic! You need to try this tea.

So I am a lucky woman I took my mom out for her birthday and treated her out for lunch with me and my girls and then she surprised me a month early for my birthday a bunch of DavidsTea, this was one of them!

So what do I think? Well I love strawberry, I love Rhubarb and Yogurt so did I love this tea? The answer is YES! A great mix between sweet and tart.

Flavors: Rhubarb, Strawberry, Tart

Oh my what an amazing Early Grey this is, the creaminess from this brew is just divine. Drinking this tea feels like being enveloped in a warm blanket of liquid goodness. The vanilla notes with the cream are just perfect for this tea. I do believe I have a new favourite in the house.

I found this berry ok.
Rather sweet and very berry like. Couldn’t taste the tea much. Nothing memorable, but pleasant enough. I’d take this over a can of coke any day… and with a bit of fizz I could see it being a lot better than ok!

So, I didn’t realize until literally just now looking up this tea here on Steepster, but I guess this isn’t a “new” tea like I thought it was. This was, I guess, re-released with the Matcha Collection that came out earlier in the month. Since the PLU# on the back of the tin was a new one and not an older number I just made the assumption it was a new tea and not a returning one.

My guess, and it is just a guess, is that because we’re selling this with a completely new description and it has an updated PLU# (normally returning teas are listed under their old numbers not given new numbers) is just that it’s been reformulated enough that it can’t be considered the same blend anymore – though it looks like the same ingredients to me. Just a theory…

Anyway, that’s a lot of exposition.

Basically, I did really like this tea and I was certainly quite excited for it. However, as someone who really enjoys Genmaicha because of the roasty flavour of it I have to say that I do prefer the normal Genmaicha. It’s just that this is essentially the same thing but more vegetal/grassy, and with a higher price tag. Also, I like that Genmaicha is relatively low caffeine which makes it nice for night time – but the added matcha makes this somewhat more caffeinated. So, an enjoyable drink overall but given the option I lean more towards the other one we’re currently offering.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

So excited to get a sample of this! And oh my goodness it’s really tasty! I don’t normally like earl grey but this is very mellow and mostly lemon and creamy tasting! I am really loving it.

Mmm, I got an iced cup of this yesterday to go, with a little milk added, and it was really yummy! I had to laugh when I asked my tea guide how it was and she told me ’It’s sweet. You’d probably love it’ (She knows I like my tea sweet, hahaha) Anyway, I really like it, and I plan to get more. It has a nice creamy and mapley flavour! I’m happy.

I LOVE THIS TEA! When I drink this I will literally just hold it under my nose and just take deep breaths it smells amazing and it tastes even better. This spearmint tea is so calming and beautiful that it is perfect for after dinner.

I’ve been wanting to try this oldie for a while now and to be honest, I’m kinda put off by the smell of it steeping. And the green stuff that looks like paper confetti. I guess it tastes kind of grassy… It’s definitely different for me. I made this iced – steeped for 5 minutes. To my disappointment I didn’t see many strawberry pieces at all, let alone smell them. Hmm… I’m kind of unsure on this tea. There is a hint of strawberry, but not sure what else it is I’m tasting. Ohhh it must be the bamboo leaves. (Just looked up the ingredients)

I remember trying Bamboozled which also had that ingredient and I did not like it. That’s probably what did it for me. I’ll finish it, but its not something I’ll reach for.

Flavors: Bamboo, Grass, Strawberry

Yeah I ended up with a lot of this one myself, and didn’t really enjoy it. I ended up drinking most of it and I had to add strawberries to really get any of that flavour.

Michelle

I’m also getting a tingly bite in my throat from the peppercorns :/

Fjellrev

I’m definitely not a fan of bamboo. I swear it tastes like cellar to me!

You just can’t go wrong with this tea, in my opinion. I just use one David’s Tea spoon, unless I’m making a latte where I bump it up to two. I’ve had it black, great. I’ve had it with a splash of milk (how I usually take it), wonderful. I’ve had it as a latte, superb. It is just an all around excellent tea.

It’s sweet, but not too sweet, and spicy but not even close to being overwhelming. Most teas that are inspired by desserts or ‘real’ food to me come off as either very fake or just not even close. Somehow, someway, Cardamom French Toast does taste like french toast. A bit of a bready note with some body, sweet syrupy flavor, and of course some spicy/sweet cardamom.

Granted this tea has a lot of ingredients, nobody would call it natural, but it really works to curb sweet cravings for me, something other teas generally only halfway achieve. This one tastes like a dessert, even with just a tablespoon of milk.

If it is ever in danger of being discontinued again, I’ll have to do a decent stock up. And then cry.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
218 tasting notes

Not too bad for a flavored tea, but I am kind of “over” most flavored teas. This must be the newer version, since I didn’t get any cool glitter effect.

There is some malt and astringency; that’s pretty much all there is of the base. Tastes like a cheap Indian base, which hey, I’m cool with.

Of course, the flavors mask the tea, since this is Davids. There’s maple, brown sugar, almond extract, vanilla, a little bit of creamy saltiness. It’s a nice dessert tea.

drank Mocha Orange Biscotti by DAVIDsTEA

The smell is amazing and you get this wonderful chocolaty orange smell that you think to yourself that you just scored the jackpot here but wait for it… the tea just doesn’t deliver.

I really wanted to like this one, I really did and I have had it multiple times now and the best way that I enjoy it is as a latte.

Flavors: Coffee, Mocha, Orange

So I bought a tin of this because well I love coffee and thought that I would naturally like this… not so much. I don’t dislike this but there is so many competing flavors that the taste just feels off. Also not a fan of the oil slick that is part of this tea. I don’t think I will be repurchasing this one.

Flavors: Artificial, Burnt, Coffee

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

I tried this in the Valentine’s Day Sample package it smelled like french toast however when I brewed I was a little disappointed really it really smelled wonderful but kind of tasted bland unmemorable. Its not a bad tea but I don’t think I would buy it, I am glad that it was just a sample!

While this has a nice day one could not drink it every day. This is more for when you think you are getting a cold or you are not feeling good then its the perfect tea. I have 50 grams of this and I have feeling this will last me a very long time.

Flavors: Black Pepper, Ginger, Peppercorn, Spicy
