From DAVIDsTEA

Fire it up

Something magic happens when you grill a pineapple. The sugars caramelize, the juice gets sweeter and the flavour intensifies. It turns from an ordinary fruit into a golden gem of endless summer possibilities. And this insanely delicious tea perfectly captures the flavour of this juicy treat. It’s got huge pieces of real pineapple and toasty grains of roasted rice, all in a base of fresh green tea and sweet, smooth-drinking rooibos. In other words, it’s like drinking a cup of liquid sunshine.

I can’t put my finger on it, but something about this tea makes me think of urine.

I tried to put it out of my mind and drink it, but I just couldn’t. Just, pee, pee, pee. Blech. Why is this tea???

Sil

welcome back! i hated this one too

Maddy Barone

oh my gosh. shudder

Fjellrev

Welcome back, Anlina!

I recalled this being bad too and went to look at my review. It was a lot more heinous than I remembered. I apparently got stinky cheese/baby burp-up/vomit. Ugh.

Roswell Strange

Yup – definitely one of DT’s worst. I remember being SO EXCITED about it and just… bleck.

Evol Ving Ness

Interesting. I like this one a lot. Pineapple, lots of pineapple. Isn’t it interesting how different we all are!

Here’s Hoping TTB

One of the really fun things about traveling tea boxes is the chance to sample teas I would never normally purchase. Like this one! The name is intriguing and so is the base tea…I don’t think I’ve ever tried a green tea/rooibos blend before. It actually works better than I was expecting! The rooibos (combined with the rice) gives a convincing, woody “grilled” flavor that nicely balances the sweetness of the pineapple (which is unfortunately pretty artificial-tasting). This still isn’t something I would choose to purchase, but I’m glad I had the chance to try it out!

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #30
Nothing fancy here, though I am always thrilled to try a tea. Mostly, I taste splenda but that could be the blackberry leaves. This is kind of a little bit of genmaicha mixed with a lot of rooibos, at least that is what this serving looked like. Not much pineapple to me.

I got sucked into a DavidsTea the other day, and since this one is being discontinued, I thought I’d give it a go.

First things first, though. WTF is up with their new shitty steeping directions? 1-2 “PS”? “Hot water”?! Way to be freaking non-specific, DavidsTea. No wonder you have to add stevia and candied fruits to everything to make it taste OK.

Now.. the tea. It smells kind of OK in the bag. A little toasted, fruity, and I can smell rooibos for sure. Steeped, it’s… sugary-sour, rooibosy, and a little toasty. It’s not good. Really, not good.

Sweet from all the candied fruit.

Oh gods, and it’s weirdly SOUR too. D:

“No wonder you have to add stevia and candied fruits to everything to make it taste OK.”

LOL. I totally agree.

Fjellrev

Ugh, this one terrified my taste buds.

OMGsrsly

Wow there are a lot of repeats in my post on my phone. What fun.

This was awful. I still have some but I’m not sure a cold brew will redeem it.

I just got more of this today to try…I forgot it has blackberry leaves. I hate blackberry leaves in tea. I seemed to remember liking it last year, so I wanted to try it again before it is gone. And…

“First things first, though. WTF is up with their new shitty steeping directions? 1-2 “PS”? “Hot water”?! Way to be freaking non-specific, DavidsTea. No wonder you have to add stevia and candied fruits to everything to make it taste OK.”

Agreed. WTF? I finally figured out that PS is perfect spoon (the one they sell which I don’t think is anything different than a teaspoon)…but the temperature of the water is CRUCIAL for the right cup of tea! I hate that they are adding stevia and sugar to teas…I don’t mind the coconut sugar so much, but criminy…let ME add the sugar or sweetener of MY choice, IF I choose to. I told an SA this today, and I need to mail them about this too. This plus the new directions and so on…Ihave definitely sensed a shift in the company over the last few years…not for the better though. Except for sloth mug…sloth mug replaces my beloved kids mug that now has several cracks all inside and is now useless.

I got a sample of this from Tea in Spoons and I adore it! I’m going to buy a big bag of it as soon as I run out, because everything about it is delicious. I do not find the taste artificial like others do. It is a bit like genmaicha but with some pineapple flavour in it as well. It has a toasty and subtle sweetness to it, which I really like. The fruity pineapple has a really nice flavour, and it doesn’t have that astringent soapy taste that some pineapple/pina colada teas have.

Oh man I don’t know why this tea has such a low rating because I got a sampler of this in a gift pack, gave it a shot and LOVED it. I expected it to just taste fruity, as I usually have trouble distinguishing between different fruity teas (and I usually prefer more nutty or floral teas) and I was wondering how they’d get the “grilled” part of the pineapple in the tea.

Which is why when I brewed it and got an immediate smell of pineapple and popped rice I knew it would be a strong pineapple / genmaicha blend that I’d love. And I was right. Solidly enjoyed the pot of tea I made from this sample, and I will be going to Davids tomorrow to pick up 100g of this amazing elixir. It’s so delicious!!

This straight up tastes like chinese food. It’s very artificial. I don’t like green teas usually and this isn’t a tea that I’m opposed to because of the green base but because it’s so artificial.

Pineapple is a very strong flavor, as expected, but the next strongest flavor is rice which makes it just taste like… cliche Hawaii or something. I’m not a fan.

There is a somewhat artificial taste to this tea, I am thinking it is the pineapple, with that said I do like the roasted-flavour profile though.

This tea is better when served iced than hot, the artificial taste is subdued this way and you get the really fruity notes – reminiscent of a grilled pineapple.

This one seemed like the best choice for my insane catching-up study session/getting paperwork done at the same time. I was worried when I smelled it that the taste wouldn’t be as good as the smell. But it does! It is much more delicate than I thought, and I left the tea ball in until my cup was dry. It really does taste like pineapple and is satisfyingly sweet but thirst quenching. I think icing this would be amazing, especially with a few chunks of fresh pineapple in it. All in all, it might be one of my new staples!
