I like this tea, it has a nice fruity and cranberry taste to it, but it’s a bit light in flavour, and also a little tart. It’s good, but not my favourite tea ever.

drank Caramel Shortbread by DAVIDsTEA

Even though I was positive I wouldn’t like this tea, I finally gave in and tried it just because… And it smelled icky while steeping. I’m not a fan of caramel, so I knew it wouldn’t be great. It’s drinkable though. I’m getting a lot of flavours here. I taste the fruit in the blend, but I also taste the caramel. It has this buttery taste and its a bit sour as well. I have 2 agave in this and it’s okay but I definitely wouldn’t buy this one.

Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Cookie, Fruity, Sour

drank Tomato Turmeric by DAVIDsTEA

This was actually disgusting. I bought a to go cup and only had about 7 spoons, the spice was just too much. It was a really strange taste. After that I left it to get cold and dumped it later – in which the smell almost made me gag. :/

Flavors: Spices

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

drank Gingerbread Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
260 tasting notes

I was looking forward to trying this, hoping to find a gingerbread tea I like… The flavour is there, but its very subtle. The powder smells stronger than the tea tastes. I don’t know why. I find this flavour to be more subdued than any of the other matchas. I’ll finish the rest I have, maybe it will be better iced. I definitely don’t dislike it, but its not what I was hoping for.

Flavors: Ginger, Spices

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C

drank Let It Snow by DAVIDsTEA
260 tasting notes

Hmm, smelling this it smells really good. Festive even. But tasting it, its quite different. I can taste the spice I was smelling, but it also tastes creamy and somewhat like eggnog. Which I don’t care for. I think it’s safe to say I won’t be buying any more of this one. I’ll finish what I have, but it isn’t for me.

Flavors: Creamy, Eggnog, Spices

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 15 sec

yes this tea is described on their website as eggnog!

Michelle

I actually think I liked the original ‘Eggnog’ tea better than this.

I was so psyched to buy this just based on the description, but then I tried a free sample in the mall, and it’s also not for me :(

drank Foggy Bottom by Angry Alpaca
260 tasting notes

I don’t know why I thought I’d like this tea… But when I got it, the overwhelming smell of bergamot and lavender was so strong, I almost didn’t want to try it. I steeped it for 1 minute, added some sugar, and it’s drinkable. I don’t like the flavour at all. It has an after taste and its really weird for me. Bergamot and lavender aren’t things I like.

Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender

Preparation

drank Zomba Pearls by DAVIDsTEA
260 tasting notes

Picked up literally 10g of this to try – and since its such a light tea, 10g seems like a fair bit. But I was so looking forward to trying this, and since it is now online as well – maybe I’ll sneakily use my FS reward on it. At first I only steeped it for 4 mins, but it needed more, so I stuck the leaves back in for a bit. I added some sugar and it’s actually not bad. Better than the first 4 mins, haha! It has a vegetal taste. Also kinda buttery and floral. I don’t get any citrus/lemon out of this at all… Which is disappointing, but maybe resteeped will be different? Anyways, so far for a straight white, I quite enjoy it.

Flavors: Butter, Floral, Vegetal

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Drinking one of my fall faves this morning… Still loving this lovely blend of blueberry and cinnamon. ’It’s like a hug in a cup’ definitely rings true for me.

drank Mocha Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
260 tasting notes

I got about 20g to try from somebody, so I’d get what everyone thought was so great… But honestly it wasn’t the best matcha I’ve had. I tasted the mocha a little bit, but it was subdued. And maybe it’s because it’s older, but still… Wish it was better. I think Steeped Tea’s is better than this. Even if it isn’t sweetened.

Flavors: Grass, Mocha

My own opinon. If you want to experience chocolate and matcha at the same time, the best way to do it is to drink matcha, plain, without sugar, and have a great chocolate great beside it. :))

Bio

Hi, I’m Michelle and I am pretty much obsessed with tea. Some people say I have a problem. I mostly drink DavidsTea – but I am open to trying other ones too.

Things I LOVE in tea:
-Fruits (especially peach, melon, strawberry, banana, berries etc)
-Chocolate
-Lemongrass
-Cinnamon

Things I don’t MIND in tea:
-Stevia
-Vanilla
-Pineapple
—Mint & Peppermint

Things/ingredients I HATE in tea:
-Coconut (Rare exceptions)
-Nuts (Some exceptions)
-Caramel/toffee
-Earl Grey (Bergamot)
-Rice/fennel
-Coffee beans
-Bamboo
-Lavender

I am quite picky with my teas. If the primary ingredients are mixed with something I don’t tend to like – I will try it and its possible I’ll like it. But if the tea is mostly/primarily something I hate – I won’t even try it.
I mostly like Herbals, Green, Oolong, White and Black teas.
