I don’t have the words to describe the taste of this tea, but it is wonderful. I got multiple teapots worth out of two perfect spoonfuls. Although I oversteeped my tea leaves a lot, I didn’t notice any adverse flavours.

drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA

Dry, this tea has a nice peachy and floral aroma. Steeped, it doesn’t leave much of an impression on me. It’s pleasant to drink but somehow bland at the same time.

I can’t help but compare Buddha’s Blend to Monk’s Blend every time, just because of their similar names. Monk’s Blend is unquestionably the better of the two. It’s too bad that DAVIDsTEA discontinued it…

Flavors: Peach

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 15 sec 5 g 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Choco Chaga Detox by DAVIDsTEA
102 tasting notes

This tea had quite the strong smell when I opened the tin, so I was expecting the worst. However, it’s not bad. The chocolate flavour does not particularly stand out, but at least my cup was not bitter like some other reviews stated. I’m reminded of a really dark piece of chocolate in the 90-99% range. I was out of milk, or else I would have mixed some in. Maybe next time.

Edit: Curiously, I looked back at my previous tasting notes, and I had rated DAVIDsTEA’s other chocolate teas poorly in the past. Compared to Hot Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Delight, this tea sat really well with me.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 7 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Classic. I knew I was going to like this. I don’t think the dusting of matcha did anything to wake me up, though. I’m perpetually tired.

Flavors: Toasted Rice

drank Blueberry Matcha by DAVIDsTEA
102 tasting notes

Long ago I swore to stop buying matchas from DAVIDsTEA, but I inherited this bag from my late aunt. I prepared a cup to drink hot and found it much too sweet the first time. Now I only add this to vanilla ice cream or yogurt to make a milkshake or smoothie.

Flavors: Blueberry, Sugar

It’s been so long since I’ve been able to log in to this website that I’ve forgotten most of the teas I’ve tried in the past several months.

This is what I’ve been drinking recently because I received a box on my birthday. The artificial flavouring is apparent, but it’s not the worst instant milk tea I’ve tasted. I can’t – or won’t – go out to get bubble tea during this pandemic, so this is satisfactory. The blueberry flavor milk tea is supposed to taste like The Alley’s in-store Royal Milk Tea.

Flavors: Blueberry, Milk

Preparation

Glad you managed to log in eventually! I stay logged in now because of all the issues I’ve had with it in the past.

drank Lavender Buttercream by DAVIDsTEA

A nice, sweet dessert tea to enjoy when I’m in the right mood. It’s not the prettiest tea, because I could gradually see something floating to the top as my tea cooled, but at least the flavour lives up to the name. I seemed to receive a tin with lots of candied pineapple, so occasionally the taste of pineapple overpowered that of the lavender, but not always. I might add some milk in the future for even more creaminess, but no extra sugar is required with this tea.

Flavors: Lavender, Pineapple, Sugar

You’re most likely to find: Black Teas. Caramel. Chocolate. Cream.

I am also tempted by: Flowers. Comparisons to alcohol. Berries.

Despite the above, I generally dislike herbal teas and fruit infusions.

Coffee flavours do not belong in tea. If I want coffee, I will go to Starbucks.
