Advent Calendar 2017, Day 13: I love this kind of tea. This smells and tastes delicious. The only negative I have on it is that it’s oddly thick and syrupy. It has a mouth feel of heavily honeyed tea. I think I would grow used to that over time, but not expecting it, it was a bit off putting at first.

drank Coffee Pu'erh by DAVIDsTEA

Advent Calendar 2017, Day 12: I HATE coffee. I never would have tried this except it was in the advent calendar. One sip had me gagging. But since this is a flavor I hate, it’s not fair for me to rate it. Enjoy, coffee lovers!

drank Raspberry Cream Pie by DAVIDsTEA
1 tasting notes

I tried this tea for the first time as part of their advent calendar. I was really looking forward to this, since I have a sweet tooth and I really like dessert teas – not to mention, the strong raspberry scent and the white chocolate!

Steeped, the tea is a light brown colour with a strong raspberry scent that kind of overpowers the tea (and seemed a little artificial at times). I don’t know why, but as with many DavidsTea, the tea is covered by a thin layer of oil. It was really creamy and sweet though, which is probably attributed to the white chocolate.

Overall, I really enjoyed the tea! It’s described as a spring time tea, but it felt like a festive drink that reminded me of homely Christmas parties. I would recommend adding more leaves for a stronger brew.

I want a candle that smells just like this tea! The aroma is creamy, spicy, sweet breakfast deliciousness. The flavor doesn’t quite live up. It’s mildly spicy and sweet with a hint of vanilla, but not as rich as I was hoping.

Flavors: Cardamon, Sweet, Vanilla

drank Carrot Cupcake by DAVIDsTEA
515 tasting notes

This one was a nice surprise! The scent is AMAZING. The brewed tea doesn’t exactly taste like carrots, but it captures most of the other flavors of a carrot cake: the fruitiness of the raisins, the spices, and even a hint of the cream cheese frosting. I would definitely consider re-purchasing this one!

Flavors: Cream, Fruity, Ginger, Nutmeg, Raisins, Spicy

drank Blueberry Muffin by DAVIDsTEA
515 tasting notes

This tea smells EXACTLY like a freshly-baked blueberry muffin! It steeps up bright pink (thanks to the hibiscus in the brew) and has a nice blueberry flavor. I wish there were more of a “muffin” flavor, but this is still a nice fruity tea.

Flavors: Blueberry

drank Spiced Apple by DAVIDsTEA

This one was a miss for me. It’s basically a cinnamon-flavored tisane with hints of clove and apple. Considering how many chunks of dried apple were in the blend, I was hoping for more apple flavor.

Flavors: Cinnamon

The colours in this tea are amazing. The ingredients all sound really good and like something I would like. But the added sweetener completely ruined it for me, not only did it look like a super artificial sugary drink, it tasted like one too. I couldn’t even finish my cup.

Flavors: Artificial, Sugar

I love mint teas and was really excited to try this one, but it’s just ok. I’m not a huge fan of anise or fennel, so that definitely affects my opinion on this tea. The mint is almost an aftertaste, and it’s not as refreshing as a mint tea should be.

Day 14 of the 24 Days of Tea. The name alone makes me want to try it. I’ve read the reviews. Lots of people love this tea. I am not one of them. Maybe if I could smell it I would enjoy it more. But all I got was a sort of muddied, earthy flavor, edged with bitterness. So this one is not my cuppa. I am going to try it again when my sense of smell approves.

Am not as happy this year with the tea advent calendar from DAVID’s. So many of the teas are the same. Next year I may try a different one so I can get more variety.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

Finally decided to try my sample of this. And I remember what has put me off doing that. Coconut. I do not like the coconut. The rest of it isn’t bad, but I can clearly taste the coconut in this and I’m not a fan of it. It was drinkable but will not be having this again.

Flavors: Coconut, Spices

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA
264 tasting notes

Okay, why did I have to wait until now to re-try this blend? I tried it a long while back and didn’t really care for it, but now that it’s retired, I really love it! They always get rid of the really tasty ones too.. Anyway, I had this as a hot latte tonight and my, was it ever delicious. Its definitely the best ‘chocolate orange’ tea I’ve had! Perfect balance of orange and chocolate in there. It helps I think to steep it in a spacious steeper as well, something about the pu’erh leaves… I don’t know. But I LOVE this. I need to buy more online before its out of stock for good.

This is my favourite tea! I was looking for a light tasting chai (I dislike black teas) and after the first sip of this tea, I’ve been hooked ever since!!!

Not bad but for lemon flavors I prefer the La La Lemon. The dry tea smells great, but once it is brewed it has a very earthy odor. However, the taste is much better than the smell! The lemon flavor is very delicate, I think the oolong comes through well. It isn’t too sweet, which I like, but is reminiscent of pound cake.

After the first sip I didn’t immediately want to toss this, but after a few more I had to. I wish that the orange flavor came through a bit more and was expecting something fresh tasting, but this tea missed the mark. I do like the hint of white tea coming through, but other than that this tea wasn’t very good. It also has a bad aftertaste.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
12 tasting notes

I do love me some nutty teas. Deep brown color, aroma of almonds, like baked goods and amaretto. Oily sheen to the tea surface, maybe from the coconut?

Really odd name for this tea – I imagine something totally different in flavor profile containing mountain berries and crisp snowy notes.

This tea didn’t have much punch for me. I prefer the masala style chai with complex layered flavors and the rich aroma. I think having the base of rooibos it needs something more to make it stand out.

Brewed with 12oz water and added some hot milk and a bit of honey.

Finally got a sample of this to try out… I don’t mind the mint, but I don’t like the black pepper and other spices in this blend. Definitely not for me. It was drinkable though.
