Picture of Organic Gyokuro Yamashiro

Organic Gyokuro Yamashiro from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Gyokuro – Region: Kagoshima, Japan

30 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 1/5
Jan. 21st, 2020

Looks and smells like a proper gyokuro but completely misses on flavor. Very hard to steep, needs a low temp and short time to avoid turning it into an astringent bitter mess. Does not re-steep at all, one and done. Some of the vegetal taste of a gyokuro but like an artificial version, not balanced or rich.

Caramel Shortbread from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????

82 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 31st, 2019

This “tea” is sweet and aromatic. I enjoyed it, even just using hot water dispensed from a Keurig. The second stepping was weaker than the first, though some flavor was still present.

Hot Chocolate from DAVIDsTEA

55 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 24th, 2018

I’ve always thought of chocolate tea as a bit of a conundrum. While I love chocolate, and I love tea, in almost every case attempting to blend the two leaves you with little more than a watered-down cup of hot chocolate. Call me crazy, but hot chocolate is supposed to be rich and creamy, and somehow nobody ever seems...

Candy Cane Crush from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

60 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 24th, 2018

At first blush, Candy Cane Crush is definitively festive! With candy cane pieces and snowflake sprinkles mixed into the tea, it has the appearance of being quite literally made for the holiday season. But does it taste festive? DAVIDsTEA bills it as a sweet, icy-cool peppermint black tea, so candy canes do seem to be w...

Cardamom French Toast from DAVIDsTEA

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 24th, 2018

DAVIDsTEA claims they take their french toast very seriously. In my opinion, they’re right! When I first saw that they had a french toast tea, I couldn’t imagine it tasting anything like one of my favorite breakfasts. Boy was I wrong! The Cardamom French Toast tea is rich, creamy, and tastes just like a buttery sli...

Zest Wishes from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Blend

45 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 24th, 2018

This is a decent tea that tastes just like I expected it to. It’s billed as a zesty blend of “warm cinnamon, cardamom and zesty orange peel,” and they aren’t wrong. The cinnamon and cardamom are well-balanced and rich, and the orange peel provides a decent kick to go along with the lightly caffeinated oolong te...

Oct. 20th, 2018

I'd really like to say something positive about this tea, but it's really just not good. I gave it several chances. I brewed it first using the method that worked reliably with the Maeda-en gyokuro, but it was bitter and made me extremely jittery. I tried converting the annoying, proprietary "perfect spoonful" measurem...

Kenyan Tinderet from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Black Tea – Region: Nandi, Kenya

75 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 31st, 2018

This tea is made up of small pellets when dry. I suspected they would expand with water, which they did -- but not overwhelmingly so. The aroma is pretty subtle.

I brewed it at 205 F by pouring water over it and then allowing it to steep awhile. It never became bitter or unpleasant. It reminds me of a mixture of asp...

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 31st, 2018

Sticking my nose into the bag, I found the aroma of the dry tea pleasant and strong. The main notes were of cinnamon, hazelnut, and chocolate. After brewing (at 200 F for 4 minutes) , those scents were more muted and subtle notes of graham cracker and campfire picked up.

The taste and aroma strike me as well blended...

Jul. 8th, 2018

I was in the area, so I decided to check out a David's Tea shop. In all honesty, it looked more like a candy store than a tea shop. It had all these colorful spoons and containers and most of their "teas" looked more like trail mix or confetti than tea (some of them had the ingredients to trail mix in them). I'd writte...

Organic Countess of Seville from DAVIDsTEA

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea has little bits of blue cornflower and bits of some citrus rind, so it looks nice. The tea leaves are not cut up, but whole. It smells strongly of bergamot. The flavour is strong on bergamot, not very strong of citrus, which I like. I'm not a fan of citrusy earl grey, but this one has only a hint of citrus ar...

Forever Nuts from DAVIDsTEA

25 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

This "tea" does not look like tea, but like a pile of nuts and dried fruits. It smells delicious, like nuts, apples, a bit of cinnamon or clove. However, the taste is not great. It is not a strong flavour, a bit one note, flat, mostly of nuts, like warm nut water, which is basically what it is. It seems to be popular, ...

Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks very festive, with little candy canes. It smells great, of peppermint and vanilla. The taste is like black tea, with a relatively strong vanilla taste (somewhat artificial tasting) and just a bit of peppermint. I love this tea, despite the slightly artificial vanilla taste. It is not too sweet and too mi...

Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks and smells wonderful. However, the flavour of "cream" (to me it tastes like fake vanilla flavouring) is overpowering and bergamot gets lost.This seems to be a fan favourite, but I dislike it. Would not buy again.

Jan. 4th, 2018

This tea looks gorgeous. It smells very much like cloves, very Christmassy. However, the taste is more regular mild black tea with a hint of spice (cinnamon and clove), a bit drying in the mouthfeel. It is not overly sweet, though it says that it has some sugar in it. It would be great for Christmas season, and winter ...

Wonderful. Great chai experience with no caffeine so you can drink it late. Decent cinnamon take on traditional chai. One of my absolute favorites.

This tea is OK. It's like the dregs of the English Breakfast tea though. Smaller cut, like the English tea was shaken and this is what fell out. You might be disappointed if you like the English, but I'm sure this is very good if you prefer Irish Breakfast.

This is what Earl Grey should aspire to be. Good, strong bergamot which many other Earl Greys lack. This is one of my staples.

Of all the pure teas I've gotten from David's, this is the first one to not stand out from the crowd. It is not a bad tea at all. Like mostly everything I've tried at David's, it is above average. It is just not as impressive as some of the other Greens and Oolongs I have purchased there. This is one of the lowest p...

May. 12th, 2016

I thought this was a good everday tea, especially if you want a stronger green tea that isn't too harsh, but I wasn't crazy about it for the high price that it had. I've had only one other Sejak (although I've had other types of Korean green teas, all of which I liked better) and it was pretty similar.

I initially ...

Thank you to my friend Sarah for bringing me this one! I love Kenyan teas, and this was a classic Kenyan CTC tea of decent quality. Quite good and pleasant to drink, but I think it is very overpriced.

Dry leaf is not very aromatic, nor is the brewed cup, but I find the flavor very pleasant. DavidsTea describes "l...

This is a Black tea from the young DavidsTea company (just so you know, I buy a lot of my teas there). Inside, if you didn’t guess already: coconut and chocolate chips. And when you brew it, it becomes a delicious beverage! Really one of my best discovery tea speaking! Even my boyfriend (who is not a tea drinker) fel...
