Recent Tasting Notes
I’ve been rationing my last bit of this for a few months now, trying to make it last until winter, when hopefully Davids Tea would bring it back. Well, I went on their site today, and it was listed! I put 100g in my shopping cart, and added a few other items (I didn’t really need anything, but, well, you know).
I decided that because it’s a heavy tea, I should order more than 100g, so I tried to add 50g more. I got a notice that no more was available! I hope the 100g I ordered wasn’t a mistake, because I just used a bunch of what I had left.
Still love the creamy coconut-minty goodness.
This was the first loose leaf tea I ever purchased (I’m pretty new to the loose leaf world). I LOVED it. I steeped it for a long time, and the creamy, coconutty taste was great. The mint helps give it a fresh taste. I liked it hot, but actually preferred it cool.
I drink this straight up, as I think sweetener would make it sickly sweet.
Well, it seems the third, fourth, and fifth times are the charm. I’ve gone from pretty much detesting this tea to quite enjoying its light, nutty taste.
I have about one serving of crushed leaves left at the bottom of my bag, and then I get to decide if it’s worth re-stocking.
Upped my rating quite a bit.
I finally tried this one again, as I’m trying to work my way through some of my suddenly immense tea collection. I was not impressed by this at all last time. I actually don’t mind it tonight. It has a light, nutty flavour that’s alright. It reminds me of some nutty white teas I’ve had.
I’m not sure if my tastes have changed over the last few months, or if my tastebuds were off before for some reason, but tonight I’ll enjoy my cup of this. I’m bumping my rating a bit, but not too much until I try it a third time. That’ll be the tie breaker.
What can I say? It has a strong, sharp peppermint taste. I happen to really like peppermint tea, so that’s ok by me. I’ve steeped this one at all different times (anywhere between 30 sec and 10 min), and it’s tasted fine to me. It’s even ok cold.
This is a great herb to use to mask the taste of bitter herbs that you may want to make into a tea. I’ve made a lot of herbal teas taste better by adding a touch of peppermint.
A staple in my cupboard.
I really like this one, partly because of the taste (chocolate and raspberries, how can you go wrong?), but also because I like the energy the mateine in it gives me.
The initial smell is amazing, and while the taste doesn’t fully live up to the smell, it does a pretty good job. I discovered that I prefer it steeped for a long time, and cooled off a bit, which makes it perfect to take to work with me. A bit of stevia or cane sugar helps to bring out the flavours.
This is my first review here, but the second time I’ve had this tea. The first time I made a note that it smelled and tasted a bit chemically to me, and I only found it decent after adding both cane sugar and almond milk.
I tried it again tonight, and added a touch of stevia while brewing. I like it a bit better this time around, but don’t plan on purchasing more when I finish this. I think I was hoping for less rooibos and more creme taste.
This tin of rooibos is one of the “originals” from my initial first purchase at David’s Tea. Age has not weakened its resolve to invade entire rooms with its “stench” whenever I prepare it- it may even have made it stronger!
Despite owning this for over year I still have yet to figure out if I love it or merely tolerate it. Coconut and monstrous lavender carry both the scent and flavour profile. Sometimes that comes off as yummy creamy, floral, and mint-like, other-times it simply makes me nauseous in a soap and perfume guzzling way. I wonder what would happen if I bathed in this olfactory titan.
Although I have mixed feelings on the taste, it never fails to make me nostalgic of my first days of loose leaf purchasing. Back then I bought 100g tins of everything and was on a mission to obtain every tea and tisane that even mentioned coconut. If it weren’t for my obsession with coconut, the whispers of a delicious coconut tea at Murchies, and the continuous “sold out” status of said tea, I would never have begun exploring in the first place. My love of coconut and tea are deeply connected to each other.
Today, I find myself enjoying this rooibos blend. When it’s like this I always wonder why I don’t drink it all the time. I’ve yet to try other lavender blends but this one has always made me curious to try more.
Still unsure about this tea but it would feel so wrong not to have it around after our long history together. It’s odour would always be noticeably absent. :(
I bought this awhile ago, tried it and didn’t really care for it. I love banana flavouring when it’s super strong and I must have understeeped it because the flavour was too weak for me.
This tea was calling my name today and I figured I’d give it another shot. I was very surprised at how much I liked this. I added a bit of agave to give it an extra kick and I’m thinking that next time I’ll try adding hazelnut agave.
The banana flavour is very authentic and the nuttiness fills it out nicely. As much as I like it, I don’t think I’ll buy it again because it’s expensive (darn heaviness!) and I doubt that I can get more than one decent steep out of it. That aside, it is delicious!
Edited to add: Okay, the resteep was pretty decent. Sigh, why do I ever doubt you, DavidsTea?
So i may have taken a 3 hour break from work to go out with my other half as it’s a SUPER quiet day and he has today off. Had some of this while we were out. While it’s not a bad cup, i am still not a fan of that consistent taste that most of david’s tea flavoured teas seem to have. i wonder if it’s stevia. Who knows. so not a bad cup but i still don’t feel the need to keep an david’s tea in the house! :)
So I decided that it was time to get this into my collection, so I got 50grams, yay!!! I got it on Valentines, as I thought it appropriate, seeing how it is ever so chocolatey a tea. I also packed this on my trip to vermont and enjoyed it with my breakfast one morning. I am so glad to be able to taste tea again. order had been restored !
