I think it may be the coconut I don’t like in tea. Really dissapointed I don’t like this one and tried to drink it a couple times just to be sure. Im getting a floral, then cherry then coconut flavours, can’t seem to make it work for me! Even followed the recommendation from the lady working at David’s Tea to let the water sit for five minutes before adding the tea so that it’s the proper temperature-ish.

Flavors: Cherry, Coconut, Floral

drank Yogi Berry by DAVIDsTEA

Wasn’t feeling the best today, pretty tired and have a sore throat to the point were it was annoying! Based on everyone’s reviews i thought this would be the perfect time to try this tea. Good call for sure, I only bought about 10-15 grams of this one, just enough to try it but I will defiantly be buying some more to have on hand for future sore throats. I didn’t like the smell of this tea at all, even after it steeped I had to throw the leaves out right away. The taste was berry and delicious but I can see how some reviewers called it medicinal or almost like cough drops, soothed my sore throat perfectly. The caffeine was a nice pick me up to get me through the rest of the day a little easier.

Flavors: Berry, Medicinal

drank Pink Flamingo by DAVIDsTEA

I’m getting a grapefruit but sweet taste, followed up by a bit of citrus. Not bad at all, but I’m still on the fence about if I would buy it again or not. Perhaps a small amount to have it once in awhile for something different. I’m finding the flavours kind of weak, perhaps a longer steep time but it was roughly 7 minutes so I cant see it getting much stronger.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit

If you like grapefruit in a tisane, Secret Garden has a really amazing, intense grapefruit tea.

I don’t have much experience with green tea. This one is not bad at all, but defiently not a new favourite for me. I would of liked more pineapple taste than what I got, so Im glad I only bought a small packet now and probibaly wont replace it when its gone.

Preparation
150 °F / 65 °C 3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

The prickly pear is definitely the strongest taste in this one – which can be a definite hot or miss, haha.

drank Sunny Citrus by DAVIDsTEA

My first try of any of the tea’s in the new Sunshine collection! Delicious-ness all around. I’m really liking the flavour and even the colour. As it steeped it went from a very bright pink to a lovely shade of red. The orange/citrus flavour followed up by something sweet, I want to say Strawberry but I know that’s just not it. This is certainly giving me what I need to get through the rest of winter’s freezing temperatures. Here’s to hoping the rest of the collection is as tasty :)

Flavors: Citrus Fruits, Fruity, Sweet

drank Cold Zing (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Bought this one but then gave it to my Mom, tired some while I was at her house this week. Drank a couple of sips and poured it out, the after taste was just unbearable.

Flavors: Grass, Lemon

I can only drink this one (along with Cold 911) when I’m sick. I find it has a weird taste otherwise – maybe I can only tolerate it when I can’t really taster anything, LOL.

cretia

I started to feel congested and not that great and thought that I could get ahead of whatever was brewing and fill up on vitamin C and Echnesia because Chrsitmas was a couple of days away. I got a nice lemon taste and then like a grass taste (what I imagine grass would taste like, its not like I go around eating that :P) , and it stuck with me for the rest of the day no matter what else I drank! I normally try to give everyting at least two or three tries before I consider it a dud but I dont know about that one. I’ll try the Cold 911 next time.

raven22

I live by Cold 911 when I’m sick, so hopefully you get a better experience with that one!

Wow, awfully harsh. I found it pleasant enough and soothed my throat during this nasty cold. Maybe you got old product?

cretia

It very well could have been older Rolex, I purchased it maybe two weeks prior so it should of been fresh. Someone else mentioned to me that they only drink it when they are really sick and congested, and it blocks some of the flavour

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA
13 tasting notes

I like coconut and I like mint, but I defiantly don’t like them together. I even added a chocoalte honey stick to see if it would appeal to me more….nope. After a couple of sips I poured the mug out. Perhaps I’m missing something but I have no idea why everyone loves this one so much.

Flavors: Coconut, Mint

Preparation
6 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

I like this one, but it’s just an average taste to me – there are so many more options I will try before I go to this one!

cretia

Really? Ok i dont feel so bad. Its just not for me, I really liked the coconut but didnt like the mint right after. I will continue my quest for a good mint tea and a good coconut tea, seperate this time lol

raven22

In this case, separate is better, LOL. There are so many mint teas out there, so good luck on that quest! :P

I have to be completely honest…. I only bought this tea because a portion of the sales went to JDRF. Upon first sniff I still wasn’t to sure, I actually left the dry leaves sit in my travel mug for work for a couple of days until I decided I have had enough moving it around the counter out of my way every time I went to do something in the kitchen. After finally trying it I don’t know why I wanted so long!! Im getting a raspberry taste followed up by a bit of apple and its delicious. I think this one may even make an amazing iced tea or good with a bit of carbonated water. Kind of laughing at myself now that I didn’t try this one sooner. Even the smell of it while it was brewing and drinking it was delicious. Made me think summer isn’t so far away even if it is December lol!

Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Raspberry, Summer

I would imagine if I melted an after eight chocolate bar this is what it would taste like only better! Might try a bit of milk in it next time just to see if it makes its a bit more creamy but to be honest it was awesome black. It was a good choice for an evening drink instead of eating a bunch of sweets, exactly what I wanted!
