From DAVIDsTEA

How it tastes
Classic full-bodied black tea flavour with a naturally sweet honey finish.

What if your morning had a bold beginning? We’ve carefully chosen our favourite organic Assam and Ceylon black teas and found the perfect balance of full-bodied flavours and subtle sweetness. It’s the kind of tea that puts you in a great mood, inspires harmonious relationships and makes you outrageously productive. We suggest it with a splash of milk. Is there a better way to start your day?

What makes it great
• This caffeinated blend is the perfect companion to your morning toast.
• Amazing solo but even better with a splash of milk or lemon.

Ingredients
Organic black tea from Assam, India and Ceylon, Sri Lanka.

I really like this tea. Perfect breakfast tea with milk and sugar.. nice and strong but expensive . It’s little bits of tea and maybe overpriced. 10 dollars for under two ounces when you can get 4 ounces of Harney free shipping under ten. I think the Irish breakfast is most comparable if my memory serves. I like it… prolly wont buy it again…

Admittedly, black tea is not my favourite but with that being said, this wasn’t half bad. I received one tea bag as a freebie in with one of my David’s orders ages ago and just got around to drinking it now.
It brewed up a nice deep golden brown colour. The flavour was much milder, smoother and less bitter than I was expecting which was a pleasant surprise. It pretty much tastes like your usual breakfast tea but this one is definitely better than your average, run-of-the-mill variety.
I stayed up too late last night, binging Season 2 of Cheer on Netflix so this tea worked well for me this morning, assisting me with a much needed boost.
I do love that it re-steeped quite well and managed to retain a good amount of flavour.
I enjoyed my complementary bag but have no need to purchase it.

DAVIDsTEA Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 17

Last day of work until after Christmas, yaaaay! \o/

Anyway, this is fine. It’s a generic sort of breakfasty tea. I think the Assam is slightly stronger than the Ceylon, but I do taste both. It’s slightly brisk even with a 2-minute steep, which I opted for after seeing the CTC leaves. Somewhat malty, fairly metallic from the Ceylon. Mostly tastes tea-ish. The description mentions a sweet honey finish, but I’m not tasting that.

Pretty much a resounding “meh” for me.

Flavors: Earth, Malt, Metallic, Tannic, Tea

A nice creamy and malty breakfast blend. Not too aggressive/assertive but a good standard breakfast blend. Creamy rather than astringent. I would probably not like it to be iced. A hint of creme de cassis/black current as well, which I love.

Flavors: Black Currant, Cream, Irish Cream, Malt

I ended up with enough of this tea to fill one of those wall tins from DavIdsTea plus a tinzilla as we use to call it (holds about 250g).
One year later, I’ve drank it all. Yep. I drank that much over a year. This has been my comfort tea this past year. It’s been the only thing I’ve wanted to drink over the last year, and I’m ok with that. I have needed the comfort tea because of the world craziness. But as things are starting to look l Ike they might be getting better (hopefully????) I’m going to get back to drinking other teas and hopefully not just focus on my comfort teas.

Here’s hoping the rest of the year goes well!

A fairly straightforward and simple breakfast tea – which is fine with me: it does its job early in the morning to wake me up and ease me into the day.

Much like the leaves, the taste of David’s Breakfast Blend is purposely simple. Although black teas are often quite bitter to me, I find this blend earthy and smooth. A flavor that would go well with milk, as a simple latte or just plain by itself.

#adventageddon Day Three – 2/5

I spent the afternoon today working in stores which slowed down my advent tea consumption a little bit – but I managed to get three teas finished in the morning before leaving (finished the rest when I got home), including this tea in latte form which I drank during the commute from the office to the store I was working in.

I’ve had this black tea before and I enjoy it, but this is my first experience with it prepared this way & I really loved the sweet malt, honey, and fresh baked bread notes w/ the creamy milk!! I generally find this breakfast blend REALLY fully bodied and tannic, though the same notes are typically present it’s just that the astringency can be a bit much for me without a little milk to soften the edges. This was perfect.

Also, was really happy to see a straight tea included in DT’s advent selection!

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
