No matter what you did on this chilly day, there’s no better way to warm up than with a great cup of tea. And it doesn’t get more comforting than this mulled wine-inspired all natural oolong, with orange zest, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Whether you’re sipping it at the ski chalet, in front of a roaring fire or just between errands, it’s the perfect way to warm up your winter.

Despite my complaints about DT’s generous and frequent use of stevia and so on, one thing that I really like is that I am able to buy 10 grams of any tea. Another thing that worked for me is that there was a DT’s shop in every single direction, in each regular stomping ground, from where I live.

COVId changed that. All DT’s shops closed and the one that remains is in a large shopping mall that I avoid like the plague. So my casual drop-ins for tastings and random small and big purchases have ended, at least for now. Who knows what the future holds for DT’s reopenings?

I still have a number of these 10 gram bags hanging around from various splurges. Given that often DT’s uses massive amounts of fruit and such additives with little leaf, 10 grams is a good amount to try something out.

So I used the full 10 grams in this cup. The leaf was full of fruit and spice, not much tea.

But wow! Really nice! Exactly like gluhwein—is that the spelling?

Tons of fruit spice and the flavour of a rich full-bodied red. I was pleasantly surprised. This one absolutely is a winner. Resteeps were good too.

Two things though. 10 grams is a lot for a decent cup of tea. Am I really going to buy 50 (expensive) grams when it only makes five cups? Madness.

And my pattern of picking up small amounts and leaving them hanging around means that, by the time I try it and like it, the tea has long ago been taken off DT’s wall board and been retired. I don’t know whether this one is still available. If so, I might pick up a bit from time to time.

It is delicious even though it confuses the taste buds, switching my tea to spiced wine. The execution of this one was excellent.

Wow! I had no idea you could buy 10 grams at a time! That would be so tempting…

Evol Ving Ness

It really was. Every time a new set of teas would come out, I’d pass by and pick up some of the more tempting ones. And some extra something or other because there I was.

I envision the 10gram samples hanging off spinning racks in every Davids store…. but probably not. haha (never had a Davids around here…)

Evol Ving Ness

They do/did have premeasured packaged teas for sale in maybe 25 gram and larger sizes, but they have a wall with all their tins with a part that you could sniff the leaf. They also have/had three premade teas daily that you could sample. But you can/could buy any amount of leaf by weight. 10 grams minimum.

Evol Ving Ness

As in, minimum because usually their leaf is heavy.

I quite enjoyed this tea. It has a subtle flavor, but is very tasty. I tried without sugar yesterday and today with a little bit – the sugar definitely adds to it. I received it in my advent calendar, would totally purchase on its own for a night night in.

Day 19 of Davids Tea advent calendar… I’ve received a pouch of this last year, but didn’t try it until it was my day of the advent calendar. The mulled wine kind of threw me off, I don’t like wine, so I didn’t think I would like this one. But I am really enjoying it today. Its got a very strong and inviting orange, cinnamon and clove flavors blending together. I added a hint of sugar and a little bit of milk which made the tea a lot smoother.

Day 19 of the David’s Tea advent calendar. It looks like dried fruit, but smells like bubblegum (in a bad way, like the kind I only eat on airplanes so my ears don’t hurt). Once I add water it just smells like dried old orange peels (which I like a lot better). It looks a little weird steeping.. I think my boss was eyeing it on my desk. I pictured it to be red, but I guess it’s more like a white wine… or brownish orange. The flavour is kind of nice and subtle. It doesn’t remind me of mulled wine (or what I imagine mulled wine to taste like?) at all, but it does have a nice fruity/orangey taste. It kind of reminds me of a lemon green tea from Tetley. I rate this one as drinkable but pretty average.

I loved the scent of the tea blend more than the smell and taste of the brewed tea. I added a bit of honey to accent the flavors but it didn’t help much. It tasted more like a regular oolong tea with floral notes than something resembling mulled wine – and I really love mulled wine.
Seriously disappointed.

I still had a little advent calendar tin of this, so I included it in my homemade one this year. It’s a lovely blend to enjoy in the winter season, and it’s basically just a nice orangey spice tasting tea. I like it. The ginger and spice may have surprised me at first but I am enjoying it now.

Similar to DavidsTea’s Sangria in smell and taste, but weaker than Sangria. Kind of disappointing.

Day 17 of 2015’s 24 Days of Tea. Despite many people saying that this tea smells like bubble gum, I don’t really get that. To me it smells closer to just generic Christmas spice blends, which is hopefully to be expected considering the ingredients. I had this with my dinner tonight and I have mixed feelings about this tea.

The most obvious flavor in this tea to me is the oolong base surprisingly, I thought that the spices would have drowned out any flavor of it, although there is a lot of clove flavor in the aftertaste. I do get a bit of orange in the background but not much else, aside from some cinnamon as well.

The unfortunate thing to me about this tea is that is tastes very… watered down? The whole flavor profile is pretty weak, and unfortunately since I only have the tin from the advent calendar I can’t do any more experimenting. Based on the cup I tasted I can’t say I’m particularly sad to see that this tea did not make a comeback.

Weird tea. The first time I tried it, it was citrus and spice and the oolong itself was pretty much nonexistent under all the spices but it was ok if citrus-spice is what you’re looking for. The second time I tried it, was overwhelmingly bubblegum. How can anything taste so much like bubblegum? I took the leaves from that hot steep and cold steeped them overnight, and now… spicy bubblegum? Not bad, just extremely bizarre. :)
