I tried this for the first time today. I’ve had 4 cups of it at work this morning. So far I’m liking it very much, which is a good thing because I bought 300g of it before I even tried it!

Got this as a free sample with an order I placed. I totally agree with another steepster who said it smells just like a strawberry campino candy; the comparison is very accurate. I like it very much, wish I had more than just a single-serve sample to give it a fair assessment. I’ll definitely get more of it to see if I still like it as much after a few more cups.

drank Nutty Granola Crunch by DAVIDsTEA
205 tasting notes

Thanks to SuperStarling! for sending me a big bag of this. I see there has been a lot of low ratings for this tea so I must be an outlier here.

The first impression on smelling this tea is, “Whoa. Peanuts.” Straight up smells like a bag of peanuts. Now, in terms of this review, there is something you should know about me. I am a huuuugeee fan of nuts. I always keep nuts (usually the deluxe mixed kind) in my house. So this was exciting for me.

The flavor of the tea itself definitely had that nutty flavor but some of the sweetness from the apple, coconut, and brittle (yes, this tea has brittle) also contributed. The result is a really nice, warm, peanut-y, sweet brew. I dig it.

If any of ya’ll who rated it below a 50 still have some, I’d love to take it off your hands. :)

Flavors: Apple, Nutty, Peanut, Sweet

drank Goji Pop by DAVIDsTEA

Got this as a free sample with an order I placed. It’s like fruit punch… hot fruit punch. I’m not a fan. It’s probably very good cold though, I’ll have to wait until summer to try it.

Sipdown of this one!

I do like this one. It’s a nice coconut/pineapple flavour. I get more coconut than anything. But it is yummy. It’s lovely how it steeps up nice and pink. A nice, sweet treat this afternoon while both babes sleep.

drank Cantaloupe Ice by DAVIDsTEA

So, I’m starting to realize I don’t care for sweet blackberry leaves either…

I steeped up this one for 7 mins in my ice tea press and wow, it’s yummy but wow it was different… I ended up adding some agave and some extra water to it to smooth it out a bit as I found the blackberry leaf sweetness as really weird and didn’t quite sit right… I’m not too sure why I don’t like the blackberry leaves.. I feel like they give me a weird taste in the back of my mouth… Again, I blame baby #2 for that. My body seems to still be a bit weird after that. Babe is 3 months old but I think I’m still trying to get back to myself.

After baby #2 my tastebuds have really gone weird on me. I don’t know what’s going on. hahah
Anyways, I remember really loving this one, but this time around, I just can’t handle the stevia. It leaves a strange taste in my mouth… hmmmm

Many of us, with or without babies, can’t handle the stevia. DT’s has really ramped it up lately.

Glad I’m not alone!

These look great, and a quite a novelty, not to mention that they don’t taste too bad either.

I steeped 2 of these (2.4g) in a relatively small mug (300ml?) for four minutes. The resulting tea came out very dark.

The dominant smell and taste was the jasmine, this was compounded by the fact that the black tea base had a light smooth flavor. Overall it was thick, smooth, floral, a bit chocolate-ish. There was no bitterness or astringency, it was really a light black in every way (except color).

Flavors: Chocolate, Floral, Jasmine

Surprisingly good. Didn’t think I’d like this one, but I do! Great after a meal, or to sooth an upset stomach. Will definitely have to keep some of that on hand.

drank Strawberry Shake by DAVIDsTEA
3243 tasting notes

I grabbed the Malt Shop Collection the day it came out and of the three, this was by far my favorite. Probably because of the three, it is the only one not presweetened with stevia. However, even being my favorite, this tea was merely just okay. It was light in flavor and I found, for once, DAVIDs went too light with the flavoring.

drank Yogi Berry by DAVIDsTEA
3 tasting notes

I thought that the smell of this was kind of interesting, nice and fruity, but I wasn’t overly thrilled with the taste. It had some fruity-ish taste but I could not tell which fruit in particular, and there was also a kind of artificial taste which I couldn’t get past.

drank Coco Colada by DAVIDsTEA
78 tasting notes

Wow another DAVIDs tea with hibiscus that I don’t immediately hate haha. Maybe my tastes are changing. I had this as iced tea with my family while I was home for the holidays. I think I prefer it chilled actually. That said, it is enjoyable heated too. The hibiscus gives it a pretty pink colour and my colleague remarked that it reminds her of the beach and Hawaii. There’s a nice creaminess from the coconut and the mango and pineapple give it a pleasant tropical flavour.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Mango, Pineapple, Tropical

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec 5 g 12 OZ / 355 ML

To be fair, there’s very little hibiscus actually in the blend – it’s mostly there to add that beautiful colour. If you’re a fan of lattes, the hibiscus in this is really easy to pick out because it’s used so sparingly, and the rest of the tea makes for a REALLY solid latte.

CelticBrew

Thanks for the suggestion! And that’s a good point about the amount of hibsicus. Won’t be running off for a heavy hibiscus tea quite yet.

drank Zestfully Green by DAVIDsTEA
54 tasting notes

I am drinking this as we speak and I am really disappointed because I thought that it was going to taste so much better than what it did. The lime/lemon taste seems so overpowering and yet redundant. Davids Tea has been over doing it lately with all the lemon in their teas, it makes all their teas seem incredibly similar. I didn’t mind the matcha flavor because at least that was adding something different. I am very glad that I just have a sample size of this because I would not repurchase this tea.

Flavors: Grass, Lemon, Lemon Zest, Lime

This tea is super YUCK. I think it smells good, like a cherry green tea, but it tasted like I was drinking cherry cough syrup mixed with green tea. I was hoping that this would be similar to Zhi Tea’s Cherry Sencha (which I LOVE!) but unfortunately, Sakura Cherry fell super short.

Flavors: Artificial, Cherry

drank Maple Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
1683 tasting notes

I grabbed this as my bday tea on Thursday. No sugar added, it already has that in the blend.
The maple notes are strong and remmicent of true maple, but I feel like it was overpowered by the marine/fishy aspect. I’m glad I don’t have it in my cupboard. Meh.

I love the smell of vanilla, and this smells great and tastes not bad. Takes some getting use to because it feels a little thick compared to steeped tea. But it is pretty nice

drank Lemon Pound Cake by DAVIDsTEA
3 tasting notes

I tried this in store when it was a tea of the day and I absolutely loved it, so I bought some to try at home. I have tried 3 times to recapture the yumminess I tasted but seem unable to recreate the tea as I remember it. At home it brews up with a mild creamy lemony-ish taste, but too light. I still like it but I wish I could get more taste from this.

Got a bunch of that stuff for free as promotion. Didn’t want it to go to waste so I drank it, but at the same time couldn’t wait for it to be all gone. Way too sweet.
