Oh, boy. I got this in one of the new DT holiday sets before Gingerbread Blondie or Forever Frosty released, so that I could try those. I try to avoid teas with stevia, because I detest it. But, this came in the set, so I figured what the heck. Opened the little tin and I was just hit in the face with the scent of stevia. Just chocolate and stevia. Brewed it, tasted it. Yup, as expected. Stevia city. I actually like the chocolate notes in this, but the stevia overpowers every other flavor and makes it undrinkable for me.

Tastes very similar to Starbucks’ peach tea but honestly better (which I do not believe they sell for home consumption… in Quebec at least). Many people enjoy cold, but can vouch it tastes very nice as a warm tea as well. Would recommend for morning study sessions.

drank Strawberry Lemonade by David's Tea
88 tasting notes

A very tart taste with the hibiscus, strawberry and hint of lemon. I like a sweeter strawberry flavor, like the one in Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, but this one is nice when that one is a bit too creamy and sweet tasting. This is more refreshing and tart. I’m not the biggest fan of hibiscus and haven’t reached for this one much, however.

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea
10 tasting notes

Received as a sample in my most recent David’s Tea order. This one is ok. It’s a little bland, but has a nice chai spice to it. I like the slight sweetness it has, I’m assuming from the candied bits in it. Very light pumpkin flavor as well. If you like pumpkin spice I would definitely try but you could skip if not!

Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin, Spices, Sweet

drank Organic detox by David's Tea
10 tasting notes

Got this as part of a wellness tea sampler from David’s and it’s another so-so for me. I made it in my David’s tea press. I think it’s the lemongrass I don’t care for. I have trouble with that flavor in food, so it makes sense I wouldn’t like it in a tea either. I would not buy this again, although I will muscle my way through the rest of the bag.

I have been searching for a tea that has the flavor of cake because I LOVE cake! But, unfortunately I can no longer digest cake being lactose intolerant and gluten intolerant. So, this tea is a real treat for me. It does have a cake flavor but, mostly a frosting flavor, in my opinion, which is great. Like the icing on the cake lol. It’s kinda sweet on its own but I like to add honey and a splash of milk to really sweeten it up. I can definitely see this tea being a great replacement for actual cake. It works for me!

tastes artificial and nutty. The name gave it a lot of exceptions which was quickly let down. Not horrid but I wouldn’t purchase again

drank Pumpkin Chai by David's Tea
3 tasting notes

This one is not for me. It smells like a really strong artificial pumpkin candle but it tastes like a bland black tea. It’s not spicy enough for a chai for me. I got a sample with my order and i am really glad I didn’t spend money on this.

Flavors: Artificial, Burnt, Caramel

This was a sample in an order and I regret waiting so long to try it because it is now retiring soon. It taste similar to a sweet green tea walnut cookie.
The green tea taste is still there among the sweetness and the nutty flavors. To be honest I am not really a person who eats walnuts very often, but found this tea to be a nice treat.
If it came back in stores, I would probably purchase some because I find it to just be a really nice balance, not too any one element

drank Cookie Dough by David's Tea
41 tasting notes

I was excited and I was let down… slightly.
I was promised cookie dough, when I think of cookie dough I think of sweet, chocolaty, buttery pre-baked goodness.
Brewed the smell is yummy, like when the cookie dough first starts to almost melt in the oven. However when I tasted it, I did not get that cookie dough taste, I got a lot of the strong white tea taste. I can get a slight chocolate aftertaste, and a little nutty flavor, but I do not get a cookie dough flavor. It was really lacking a sweetness for me.
I do enjoy teas that have that more traditional white tea flavor and are not clouded with other ingredients to make it taste like a dessert, so I did overall enjoy this cup of tea.
My problem was it just did not taste as described or what I wanted in that moment. I wanted a dessert tea, something sweet and creamy and now I just want to go get some cookie dough out of the freezer.

drank Hot Chocolate by David's Tea
41 tasting notes

This was the first pu-erh I have tried, at least knowingly.

After I first brewed I smelled a wonderful chocolate scent, similar to the first smell you might get when baking brownies and the chocolate is just getting melted and gooey. I am a fan of traditional hot chocolate, with steamed milk and bar of melted dark chocolate in it, so I was worried that it would taste too much like a watered down hot chocolate.
It was nothing like that, it did not have that same creaminess or strong pure chocolate taste that hot chocolate has, but I tasted a strong chocolate flavor with what I imagine is the natural pu-erh tea taste in the very background. It did not taste watered down, it was just a lighter taste of chocolate.
It confused my taste buds at first because of that lighter but somehow not watered down chocolate taste. It was sweeter than a dark chocolate but not as sweet as candy bar chocolate.
This tea was delicious and I finished this cup of tea quicker than most, and was going to make myself another cup! Until I remembered this tea has caffeine and it is almost 11 at night.
I am excited to try it as a latte!

drank Goji Green by David's Tea
1 tasting notes

This is a very fruity blend. It tends to brew a dark pink color and the goji pretty much overwhelms any natural green tea coming through. I don’t drink tea with any additives (sugar, honey, etc.) and this one definitely doesn’t need any.

Flavors: Fruity, Goji, Raspberry

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by David's Tea
38 tasting notes

YES this is soooo good!
I made a tea latte with it (added coconut milk and a dash of maple syrup to sweeten). It’s perfect!

I had a sip hot, yum but since Im in Flordia and it’s a hot day, I made it iced. So so good.

I steeped some in half of the mug for four minutes then transferred it to a mason jar to make it into an iced latte. I steeped the tea bag in a full mug to have a second cup and it was perfect! I got two drinks out of this. Def would buy again.

This is a tasty tea, especially for hot lattes. My largest (and only) gripe with this tea is that it is too similar to the other green tea by David’s called “Movie Night.” Especially when made a latte, the two are virtually indistinguishable. The reason it becomes troublesome to me is that Movie Night is a sweet tea, supposedly attempting to resemble sweet and salty movie snacks, and has sugar. If Toasted Walnut had less of a sweet taste to it like Movie Night, it would be perfect.

Flavors: Butter, Grass, Sweet, Walnut

drank Pistachio Ice Cream by David's Tea
1068 tasting notes

In some sips this tea tastes pretty good and in other sips it tastes like play-doh. :/ I can’t quite sort how I feel about it. I do get bits of apple in there and the overall pistachioness of it. I’m not thrilled and I’m not appalled.

I was That Kid who ate play-doh, so I’d probably like this, haha.

Dustin

I recall play-doh not tasting so bad when I was a kid, but my tastes have changed a little since then. ;)

Nattie

True! My favourite breakfast as a child was marmite and smarties on toast! I tried it again a couple of years back, and it is totally gross, as you would expect!

Kittenna

I only liked the homemade playdough, aka flour + salt. I also licked salty rocks. Yuck. But I know of this play-doh flavour you speak of, and I find it not uncommon, especially in flavoured whites. Not particularly appealing.

Found a sample while clearing out the cabinet, so I had to give it a try. The pouch insisted I was supposed to put the whole thing in the infuser…2 tsp seemed a bit much, so I compensated by dropping the steep time drastically.

It was…underwhelming, again. Smelled fruity, but it didn’t really come through (even with a longer 1.5 min second steep) and just tasted like a lacklustre green. I’m willing to assume that the issue might’ve been with my steeps, so I’ll hold off on rating this one officially.

I won’t be buying it again, though.
