Pumpkin Chai from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Blend

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 20th, 2014



I tried this before, just brewed western-style, and it was ok but not great. So this time I decided to do it the David’s Tea recommended way: simmered on the stove. 1 cup each of milk and water, 6g (two generous teaspoons) of tea, 2 tsp of brown sugar (I used organic sucanat because… it was there). Bring to a b...

Second Flush Darjeeling from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Darjeeling Second Flush – Region: Darjeeling, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 14th, 2014

I think this is an average to above-average, if a bit unmemorable, darjeeling.

Steeping the tea the traditional way using DAVIDsTEA's instructions gives a pretty bold mouthfeel. It is quite astringent, with good body, and little bitterness. The aroma is quite pleasant and very much like a darjeeling, earthy with s...

Birthday Cake from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 10th, 2014

The aroma of this cake is intensely sweet! There are strong notes of cake batter, vanilla, and a hint of cocoa. Under this explosion of cake and sweetness is a really strong note of woodiness from the Rooibos and Honeybush, it is almost like sitting at a table and having a slice of cake with ice cream and sitting next ...

Honey Bee (Honeybee) from DAVIDsTEA

Jul. 1st, 2014

Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 185 degrees, 6 minutes, French Press

Dry Leaf & Brewing Aroma: Smells like honey. Nothing more, nothing less. LOL

Flavor: This tastes like honey. The tea is also sweet on its own, but I did add a little sweetener about half way through. It's a pretty tea, with the cornflowers, and it...

Chocolate Macaroon from DAVIDsTEA

Jun. 30th, 2014

Method: 1.5 tsp, 8 oz, 205 degrees, 5 minutes, French Press

Dry Leaf Aroma: Chocolate with a hint of coconut

Flavor: I get some chocolate, but no coconut. The flavor is weak at a 5 min steep. Instructions were 4-7 minutes, so it might be better at 6 or 7 min. I have enough for one cup remaining, so I'll giv...

Jun. 12th, 2014

I finally got a chance to try something from DavidsTea, but...erm. Eh. This is not my cup of tea. More like the spice is wrong, and the price is wrong too.

I opened the bag, and the dry leaf smells just like cinnamon, if I really concentrate, I get a hint of orange, nothing else...completely overpowering any smel...

May. 27th, 2014

I received this as a sample with my last order, and I wish there was a little more in the sample pack, because I think this would be a good cold brew tea.

As a hot tea, this was pretty ok. The aroma was lovely and it had a fruit flavor that didn't really taste like anything I am familiar with. Unfortunately, it ...

Pumpkin Chai from DAVIDsTEA

53 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
May. 25th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is very sweet and creamy with extremely strong spices. The cinnamon and cloves really overpower the rest of the aromas, but there is a faint hint of malt, pumpkin, and caramel under the potent spices.

The initial impact of the taste is a tingly and numb feeling from the spices, it is a little o...

Pink Lemonade from DAVIDsTEA

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 21st, 2014

This is so perfect for warm weather. It's a pretty dark pink shade, from the hibiscus, and the lemon flavor is really lovely and strong. I drank this hot, but I can already tell it will be excellent as a cold brew.

I do wonder why David's uses artificial flavorings. Artificial lime? Really? Because the real thi...

May. 19th, 2014

I'm a little disappointed in this tea. Not that it isn't good, because it is. But it tastes very similar to the Redberry Tonic, also by Davids Tea. The two smell and taste nearly the same to me. If I was blindfolded and given a sample of each tea, I don't think I could tell the difference.

I brewed this accordin...

May. 17th, 2014

I received this in a tea swap and made it for my Mom, because she absolutely loves amaretto!

Of course, I had to sample her cup and while the flavor isn't my fave, I did enjoy it. I steeped this at 208 degrees for 5 minutes. It smells like almond, and it tastes like almond. Truth in advertising!

Apr. 29th, 2014

Excellent herbal tea! It smells awesome before steeping. Kind of fruity, but I don't pick out one particular berry scent. This was brewed for 5 minutes and turns a pretty red color.

It's lightly sweet and pleasant. The fruity taste is great, and doesn't need any sweetener.

I made this in the evening when frie...

Apr. 29th, 2014

Good aroma, good flavor. This was brewed for 5 minutes and served hot without milk or sugar. It tastes more strongly of mango than pomegranate.

I liked it, but it didn't wow me. This would probably be great as an iced tea and I'll update if I try it that way.

Apr. 29th, 2014

Oh my. I hate to be so negative, but this is just gross. It smells like cucumber before brewing. While steeping, it smells more like cucumber and mint, which is interesting because there's no mint in the ingredients list. I didn't smell/taste the melon in the description.

This was steeped for 5 minutes with boiling...

Apr. 29th, 2014

Yum! This tea smells amazing, is very pretty, and tastes great!

It contains tiny fennel seed candies, which are fun and add sweetness. I'd eat the candies alone! The pink peppercorns can also clearly be smelled and tasted.

I steeped this for 5 min using boiling water. I didn't add sugar or milk, but may try th...

I'm a sucker for pretty things, and this tea is really gorgeous. It contains gold sugar beads and little silver sugar crystals.

Before, during, and after steeping, the smell is awesome. It's spicy and sweet smelling. I infuse this for around 5 minutes.

The taste is very good, and the spiciness apparent in ...

I'm learning that most flavored teas smell great, but don't always have the best flavor. It's not to say that I don't enjoy them, but many taste at least a little artificial.

This is an ok tea, but it's not amazing. I steep it for about 5 minutes and it has a subtle blueberry flavor. I think I need to get over ...

If I'm drinking a flavored tea, I like to easily discern the advertised favors. I shouldn't need to go hunting for the chocolate in a tea called "Chocolate Rocket". And with this one, there's no search needed.

Woo! Chocolate! I even pick up some of the raspberry in the tea description.

The smell is amazing, t...

Apr. 28th, 2014

DAVIDs Toasted Walnut tea smells great, but the flavor is lacking. Before and during steeping, the sweet scent is quite pleasant. To me, it smells like baking cookies.

I steeped the recommended amount for around 3 minutes to start, and had a little test sip. The flavor was very weak. I let it brew for another ...

The dry leaves smell just like the carrot cake my mom would make for my birthday when I was a wee little one. The aroma is rich and sweet, blending carrots, spices, and vanilla for an added extra frosting like treat.

The taste is spicy and earthy, like an unsweetened carrot cake. The spices are subtle, no kick in th...

This is a wonderful caffeine free alternate to overly sugary hot chocolate.
The red peppercorns, cardamom and ginger give this rooibos chai its character. To enhance the flavor, I take out a few of the whole cardamom and pepper seeds and crush them before adding back to the mixture. We add a bit of honey which makes...

the Saigon cinnamon and pink peppercorns give this chai its character. The whole cardamom and cloves are great and maintain their flavor over time. To enhance the flavor, I usually isolate a few of the whole cardamoms, pepper seeds and cloves and gently crush them before adding back to the mixture.

This is my favourite tea from David's tea. It's very simple yet does the job. It's priced to be the kind of tea you can drink 5 times a day.

This is my first DavidsTea. I received in a tea swap called The 12 Days of Christmas. We had a tea for each day, this was Day#1. The tea itself was fragrant and pleasant to look at. Taste was nice, I only detected the taste of the black tea and pear as well as the artificial flavoring they add and wondered if this ...

Jan. 10th, 2014

The aroma is sweet and spicy, notes of marshmallow, cinnamon, toffee, and malt with a strong note of allspice. Smells a bit like spiced rum. The brewed tea still smells like spiced rum with less marshmallow sweetness. The liquid is much sweeter with strong spicy notes.

The taste sweet and malty with a velvety mouthf...
