Fine, a little spicy, not too much tea taste.

Drinkable without a lot of milk or honey which is always good. But this is way to floral for me to end up buying it. Just got it as a sample. Sort of makes me feel like I am drinking a body spray or perfume.

Very tasty. Don’t steep for too long. There is a slight hint of liquorice, not sure where that is coming from or if it’s just me. I don’t really like liquorice so it loses some points there. Otherwise it’s a nice fruity/floral tea.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Floral, Fruity, Licorice

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Neither strong nor mild, this DAVIDsTEA smells pretty accurate to how it steeps. It’s a pleasant passion fruit tea.

This is what I imagine when I imagine the perfect peach black tea. The balance of flavors is perfect for me. Sort of sweet, and the peach flavor comes out in a short enough brew time that the black tea doesn’t get bitter.

Flavors: Peach

Boiling

I would recommend this tea for those that like a good mojito. It does taste artificial, like a fruit flavored throat lozenge. I like the combination of raspberry, mint and lime.
This is a fruit infusion.

Flavors: Lime, Mint, Raspberry

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

This tea ROCKS iced! Tastes like sweet raspberries for sure. The tea guide recommended to try it hot as well as it tastes like raspberry candy. Will have to try on a cool summer night.

So i tried this one hot and cold. Hot it’s nothing to write home about and can be forgotten. Iced, this is actually a pretty tasty treat, though a little less canteloup-ey than when it’s brewed hot. Cold, though, the blend is just better. If DT wasn’t so epxpensive these days, i’d consider some for summer brewing..especially since i think it’s going to be a hot one!

Oh, sounds worthwhile trying.

final sipdown of the day…only made it to 10 but i’ll take it haha. I tried this one cold brewed since i didn’t LOVE the hot brew of this. I prefer the cold brew but there’s something in the taste that lingers and feels sweetly slimey? It’s not stevia but it’s that same sort of feel to it…possibly the excess of blackberry leaves? Not sure. either way it just means that while i’ll drink this – it’s nothing i need to keep around.

Final Count: 41

Blackberry is one of my favorite fruits. I am always on the look out for a good blackberry tea. So far, it has been hit and miss. Thanks for the info on this one :)

There’s a blackberry tea I vastly prefer…I just can’t recall it at the moment…..will try and remember

drank Peachy Lychee by DAVIDsTEA
55 tasting notes

I feel like I’m the only one who barely tastes the peach in this tea. I understand that it’s a black tea and that the peach flavour would not be predominant, but it simply tastes like a very sweet black tea to me. While I taste very little peach, I taste even less lychee. Not a favourite.

Update: After finishing the cup, I did begin to notice the peach flavour a bit more. I’ve adjusted my numerical rating to reflect this. However, I still could not recommend this tea due to its lacklustre flavour.

drank Peachy Lychee by DAVIDsTEA

The dry leaf smells amazing. The first time I steeped it I was planning to enjoy it over ice while at work, but someone turned off the ice maker so…there were about 4 cubes of ice. The nerve! I diluted it with cold water, but it wasn’t the same because I’d obviously added more tea leaves to compensate for the ice. Ugh. Pity. It tasted quite nice – strong peach flavor, a bit lighter on the lychee, and a decent black tea base. It had a weird aftertaste that I can’t quite place – might be the white hibiscus.

I made it again this morning (with the proper amount of ice!), and it was better than the wonky diluted version I sipped through yesterday but the aftertaste remains.

I don’t love it (yet), but I’m determined to find a better way to prepare it. I will order more and see if cold-steeping (or a shorter steep) will remove the aftertaste.

More to come.

A wonderful teapal purchased an ounce of all the teas from the Oasis Collection, and I’m starting to work my way through sampling them all.

Y’know, I had really high hopes for this tea based on the name alone. One day I’ll learn (especially with DT) that names don’t usually mean a damn thing. Those hopes were dashed when I saw that it contained both carrots and yogurt bits. Ugh. Why? Why would you do that? I tried it iced, and it tasted like lovely, tart (despite the added sugar) raspberries. It reminded me of Queen of Tarts – the hibiscus and the tart berry flavor.

And then I swallowed…

Yikes. It has a really unpleasant aftertaste of, you guessed it, carrots and yogurt. Sort of like the carrot yogurt in the Carrot Cake Creation Chobani Flip. Don’t ask me how I know. Let’s just say that I’ll think twice before randomly grabbing a yogurt, sight unseen, out of the refrigerator before dashing to the bus stop. I digress. I waited and waited for the taste to go away between sips to see if it was a one-off thing, but it lingered for at least five minutes. I took another sip and the same thing happened. Needless to say, I dumped the rest of my glass.

No bueno.

If you love the taste of Cinnamon this tea will knock your socks off with the taste of it. I grabbed it because I am always in search fo ra good chai that comes close to having as much spice flavour as is in my Chai Lattes I get from a coffee shop once in a blue moon. The spice I think is usually not in enough quantity is Cinnamon. But in this case I think I found that there was way too much cinnamon as that is really all you can taste, albeit that was not unexpected due to the name of it. It is a good tea and I recommend it, it is just a bit to over the top with cinnamon so I can’t drink it every day.

This is definitely one of my favourites. It is probably the best smelling tea I have ever had. I bought a tin of it for work and when I opened it everyone near me perked up. It truly is an amazing smell. As for the taste I like it quite a bit too, it has a great chocolate taste to it. My only real knock to it is that I don’t really get any taste of the chili at all. This has been one of my go to teas lately, the one thing I will say about it though is that it isn’t one you can drink all of the time because it is a very one note taste of chocolate so you can easily get board of it so I tend to switch it up with another tea every day or so.

I just tried this tea today and it was a little strange. It definitely tasted like Red Bull and it certainly smelled like it. I can’t decide if I like the taste or not. I typically don’t like the taste of Red Bull but there is something about this that I don’t mind. That being said I am not sure David’s sells it anymore. This was just a packet someone had left over and gave me.

I like to make iced matcha lattes at home using this Matcha Matsu and almond milk. It’s a great green tea. I haven’t tried baking with it yet but I would like to whenever I get to pick more up.
