Don’t steep this tea for long at all. It’s really nice and light if you only steep it for about two to three minutes. The packaging says to steep for 4-7 but it can turn bitter after three. Also a little goes a long way. Good with or without sugar.

I was super excited to try this tea as I love hot chocolate. And when I got my cup at first I tasted nothing, but then a nice subtle chocolate taste hit my tongue. The smell was amazing, it smelt like dark chocolate with a tiny smell of coffee. Overall it’s a good tea to have once and a while. I wouldn’t have it every day, but I did enjoy it.

For me, this one smells better than it tastes. I don’t like the addition of spearmint in this blend at all. I’d like it with more lavender

My coworker brought in some advent calendar teas, so I gave this a try. It’s very floral, and a bit more bitter than my preference, but it’s good at being what it is. Kind of in the same family of flavour as the pomegranate and blueberry teas from Tim Horton’s. This has more depth and variety to it, but it reminds me of them. I’ll finish the cup, I’m sure, but I’ll try another one next time rather than finishing off the tiny container.

Day 4 of the 2016 advent calendar! I’m very excited for this tea as I LOVE floral/fragrant teas a whole lot. Luckily, this tea smells AMAZING, the floral smell is very strong with the rose and lavender being at the front, with the berries coming in from the background.

Steeped, the tea gets a surprisingly amber color, which might be the berries. Speaking of, the smell is also more skewed towards the berries when it’s steeped. With nothing added, the tea is pretty good, it’s nice and fragrant with some… leafiness to it? I can’t quite describe it. With sugar added, I think it brings out the lavender a lot more, which I enjoy. I think I’m going to throw the remainder of this cup into the fridge so I can try it iced though, because I might pick this up since I love fragrant iced teas.

Overall, I think that this tea is a pleasant surprise for me. I’m glad it was in the advent calendar so I could try it, and now I want to get more.

This is the tea for Day 4 in the DavidsTea advent calendar.

Smells very, very berry when you sniff the dry leaves. Steeped it is hibiscus and berry with a faint touch of mint. It smells so much like a children’s soft drink that I was tempted to add tons of sugar and slurp it down like candy. It just tastes like something that SHOULD be super sweet, but I generally don’t add sugar to any tea.

After sipping awhile, I got used to it as is. Hibiscus is definitely up front even though it is listed way down the line in the ingredients, but hibiscus tends to do that. I am not a hibiscus hater, but neither do I seek it out. I just don’t MIND it, and it is supposed to be very good for you.

If you like herbals, you might like this. If you hate the hibby, keep moving.

Pleasantly surprised by this tea. Very accurate naming gimmick here. Smooth and calm. Soothing and completely relaxed. Perfect for a long busy day’s end and also after any quarrel. A cup of this may be just the ticket.

Hello new tea from David’s 2015 Christmas Tea Advent Calendar! This makes it year two where a well-intending relative gifted an tea advent calendar after the Christmas season; this can be cool if you do winter themed countdowns at other times of the year but we don’t, so..

I’m not typically a fan of stevia or chocolate in tea, or David’s flavoured puerh in general, but I can’t deny that this tastes like powdered hot chocolate of childhood past. Better late than never, right?

Flavors: Chocolate, Milk, Sugar

This tea is an absolute life saver. As someone who deals with anxiety issues, one way I like to bring myself back down to earth is by brewing a huge cup of a calming herbal tea. This one is just perfect without being too sweet. I could drink endless cups of it. Living out in the middle of nowhere, I’m only able to make it to David’s Tea once every few months or so. I’m never quite updated on what’s available these days, but I sincerely hope this one is never discontinued. It may be my favourite herbal tea of all time.

Flavors: Fruity, Herbs, Lavender, Sweet

This is one of my favourites too.

Again with the hibiscus- this does have a cherry limeade kind of kook aide taste. It does have a bit of artificial taste. I do like the. A died pieces and after I figured I didn’t like it as much I started to pick out the candied pieces. It’s just ok. Wouldn’t purchase again. Also it’s quite heavy and you don’t get much for the price

I’ve used this shaker about 5 times so far I love it!
you just add the matcha, add the hot water to the line. put the top with the ball thing on, and shake about 20 seconds. I like that it doesn’t seem that breakable but gives me a feel that it won’t leak. I have the mint one.

Is this tea chocolaty? Sure. Is it one of my faves? Not by a long shot. It’s not horrible by any means, but I guess I expected it to taste like a hot cup of cocoa and it really doesn’t. This is another rltea that I’ll finish up but never buy again.

This is got to be one of my favorite teas. It gives off a lovely smell of dark chocolate (makes my whole team at work drool), tastes chocolaty and nutty, and has one heck of a caffeine punch. I would drink this over coffee any day.

This tea is pretty good. Although I think it smells better than it tastes. It has a nice chocolatey aroma, but does it taste like hot chocolate? No. It’s chocolatey, but not rich. I find adding a touch of milk helps with this.
I normally don’t like the pu’erh from David’s, but I don’t mind this one. I guess it’s because the tea taste is lost amongst all the flavourings and stevia. Haha. I’m glad I tried this tea, but I won’t need to re-stock when I run out.

This was another blend that I was excited to try from the 2015 Winter Collection. I love hot chocolate and I love tea. There are times, though, when I would like to have the flavor of hot chocolate, but not the added fat or calories of a true cup.

The scent of this blend reminds me of a powdered hot chocolate mix… really! I can detect the sugar and the chocolate… and I’m so surprised that this scent is coming from a tea. I’m not sure how they did it. Giving this cup a sip, I am already enjoying this one quite a bit. I taste the earthy quality of the pu-erh, but also the chocolate that actually seems lighter than expected. I think that drinking this tea a bit quicker than usual instead of sipping, brings out more of the straight hot chocolate flavor. One thing I should mention is that the flavor I’m getting doesn’t reflect a hot chocolate made from chocolate shavings, but more of a powder mix.

There is an unfortunate element of this tea that I just can’t seem to ignore: the stevia. I am someone who can tolerate stevia in many things and actually add it to my coffee once in a while. Its presence in this cup really ruins everything, though. I would recommend this blend if you aren’t sensitive to stevia and if you enjoy hot chocolate.. but otherwise, this might be one to skip.

The stevia was so awful in this. I don’t get it.

I have really been enjoying Tikal’s tisane when I’m looking for a hot chocolate like experience.

QueenOfTarts

Dustin, I’ll look into Tikal’s! I hadn’t heard of it before.. thanks!

The tea without milk tastes like a petting zoo smells but oh. . .is somebody baking browies in the distance? With cream added, it’s much more palatable. I think this would have been better without the pu’erh base, which adds the farm undertones.
