306 Tasting Notes

drank Honey Drop by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

This tea didn’t smell like much upon smelling it, but I bought 15g to try at home. Since I have a cold, I thought it was a good idea. The tea guide also said it is better than Throat Rescue, which I don’t really care for. I added a bit of sugar, and had it hot, steeped for about 2 mins or less. It’s actually really good. I taste the apple and ginger, orange and also the honeybush. Maybe a hint of peppermint, but it’s not really noticeable. Overall I really enjoy this tea, and I managed to get 2 steeps out of one PS. I will definitely buy more of this! I hope it is part of the core collection.

drank Deep Blue Spirulina by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I still hadn’t tried this tea, so I got an iced cup to go today and it wasn’t bad. Definitely better than Magic Potion. Not artificial tasting, and kind of tropical. It steeped a nice dark blue colour. It was good, but only with sweetener. Wouldn’t buy any though.

Flavors: Tropical

drank Peachy Keen by Angry Alpaca
306 tasting notes

I’m trying this one iced today.. Smells nice and peachy, but I can definitely tell it’s green tea! It tastes mostly like green tea – but with some sugar it brings out more of the peach flavour. Not a bad tea, if you like green.

Flavors: Peach

drank Superfood Splash by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I wasn’t really too sure on this tea – but I got some to try. It smells alright – kinda reminds me of the old tea Kanpe. I made this iced. It steeps a dark red colour and I can taste the hibiscus right away. But this tea is pretty good, actually. I taste the tropical notes of mango/pineapple with a subtle hint of banana.. I added some sugar to this to make the flavour pop out more. It’s pretty good, and quite unique. I’d maybe get 50g of this !

drank Sunset Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I finally got the chance to try a cup of this to go – also purchased 50g. Definitely not sweetened, haha. But I wanted it plain so I could get the full taste effect. I taste the orange flavours, not so much the strawberry. This really reminds me of the pu’erh tea ‘Juicy Orange’, which I wasn’t a fan of for it’s weird aftertaste – but this is drinkable. I was drawn to it because it’s the first red-ish matcha I’ve tried, and I could smell the orange citrus notes in it. I think what would make this better would be adding lemonade like they suggested, or adding the matcha to a smoothie. :) I will definitely make use of what I got. Interesting tea.

Flavors: Citrus, Orange

Iced

drank ME to WE India by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I got 50g of this for at home, since it tasted pretty good in store. Surprising, because I’m not a huge fan of cardamom or black pepper… I mostly taste the mango, pineapple and coconut. Although I do get the aftertaste of turmeric/ginger. It’s a pretty tropical taste. Also, I kinda get a hint of banana, even though there is no banana in this tea. Weird, but pretty good. (Could do with less coconut though) hahaha

drank Seaberry Spa by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I tried a sample of this hot in store today, and then used my free tea coupon for an iced cup to go. It was really nice hot, and iced. I had a bit of agave in my iced cup, and it’s just really nice. Unlike any other tea I’ve had. It has a light and floral taste to it, with hints of ginger and the berries. I think I will have to get some of this for home!

drank Moringa Mermaid by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

Finally trying this as an iced tea! I really like this one a lot – it reminds me of Cantaloupe Ice! It steeps a lighter colour, but tastes almost the same. I’m not really sure what moringa is, but I probably can’t taste it. I just think this tea is really good and refreshing for the warmer weather !

Flavors: Cantaloupe, Fruity, Honeydew, Melon, Sweet

I’m pretty sure this is the right tea on here… The photo looks the same as my flowering tea. It’s called Winter Fantasy, but I don’t see the name Tea Desire on the package, it says Asiatica Blooming Tea. Anyway, this is pretty good – my first time having blooming tea. It’s so fascinating! It’s just green tea so it just jasmine tasting. Pretty simple, but with sugar it’s good!

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 35 OZ / 1035 ML

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.
