This tea is great iced, but I actually prefer it hot. It’s a really smooth and fruity black tea. Not bitter or sweet, just right. The mango and passionfruit flavor is really a nice combination for every season.

This is unlike any other green tea blend I have tried. The sea buckthorn is really noticeable and goes really well together with the ginger, blackberry, apples and pineapple. It’s a nice change from other green teas and I am enjoying it and will order more.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

This is my favorite fall tea (and I’m really enjoying the last bit throughout the rest of winter). It is a really nice black chai mix with a touch of pumpkin spice. I am a big fan of the sweeter black teas and I love chai, so this was a total win for me. I just wish they had this one all year round!

This is a wonderful dessert or afternoon tea. If you’re looking to cut back on sweets and desserts, this should be your go-to tea. It’s tastes like apple pie, but on the sweeter end. I don’t need any sugar or milk, it is very nice without anything added. I find that it cannot be over-steeped as well. I’ll need to go back to my local shop and pick up more before they sell out!

At first glance, I noticed the white chocolate and sugar among the blend and was a bit hesitant to try it out as it smelled overly sweet. It actually does really smell like cream pie with a hint of raspberry. There is an oily film on the tea, probably due to the white chocolate chips, and you can definitely taste the oil with every sip. The tea ia actually ok, not too light and not too heavy. I can taste the raspberries in there as well as the rooibos, but neither are overwhelming. It’s pretty decent and a nice-to-have in your cupboard.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

I really enjoy drinking this blend. It is floral and peachy, with a taste of jasmine. I generally like green teas, but don’t always love white teas, so I was worried I wouldn’t like it. It was a nice mix of everything and I didn’t find it that bitter. I can see using some sweetener with it, but I didn’t think it was necessary.

I was recommended this tea by the David’s Tea algorithm on their website because I love Cardamom French Toast…like if you like that, you’ll love this. Well, they weren’t totally right nor totally wrong. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. I found it a bit too oily or buttery, probably due to the coconut and pecans. It smells and tastes very chocolatey for sure. It would probably make a nice latte, but I only tried it hot.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA

I’m not a huge fan of Rooibos teas, and I didn’t totally love the smell of this one, but once steeped, it smells really nice and aromatic. You can definitely taste the almonds in there, topped off with a bit of coconut, apples, cinammon. I don’t personally taste the cardamom in there, which is a shame because I love it. It has a tiny bit of an oily layer, probably from the almond cream or coconut, but I didn’t mind it here. It’s a really nice tea for a winter afternoon.

Flavors: Almond, Apple, Butter, Cinnamon, Coconut

This tea is so nice to drink. It smells like lemon pound cake, but you don’t taste the cream or butter associated with cake. You really just get a lemon oolong tea, even with a hint of jasmine I would say. I don’t find it bitter at all, and easily drinkable without any milk or sugar. It’s very smooth and even refreshing due to the lemon in it. I prefer mine hot, but can see how it would make a nice lemon iced tea.

Flavors: Jasmine, Lemon, Lemongrass

This is a great tea to sip on when you’re sick. I woke up with a killer sore throat and this is quite soothing. It’s very minty, medicinal and the eucalyptus is really nice. Just what I needed. I added some honey and ginger to it, perfection!

I love drinking tea! I like to start my day off with a nice black tea (even better if it goes well with some milk and sugar), followed by a green or oolong tea after lunch and a nice fruit infusion in the afternoon. I am obsessed with DavidsTEA, and only use their tea presses (hot and cold) and mugs when I can.

Since I live in Europe now, I have to depend on family and friends to send me care packages with DavidsTEA goodies. Locally, I enjoy Tee Gschwendner, TeeKontor, Die Tee-Passage, Tete a Tete, and Palais des Thés.
