78 Tasting Notes
A lightly minty creamsicle tea. The predominant flavour is that of the gooseberries, which adds the citrus flavour to the tea. While this isn’t a tea I would choose to enjoy frequently, it is one that I can understand why people would enjoy it.
Flavors: Citrus, Creamy, Floral, Mint, Sweet
A light, creamy berry tea. There is definitely a sweetness to this one, very unlike the stevia or cane sugar flavours in other blends. The sweetness comes from the sweet blackberry leaves, which I’ve found are a welcome addition to all of my favourite fruity herbal blends. The flavour of Blackberry Blizzard is reminiscent of multi-berry or wild berry yogurt, as the tea has a creaminess to it (I’m assuming this is from the artificial flavouring).
Flavors: Blackberry, Blueberry, Creamy, Sweet
A smooth, rich chocolate tea with intense cocoa flavours. It brews a deep, rich brown colour, and the liquor smells like milk chocolate. The pu’erh flavour does come through when you drink this tea, adding a pleasant earthiness to the tea. Overall, it’s a lovely, well-balanced cocoa tea that forgoes the cloyingly sweet tendencies that other chocolate teas tend to acquire.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Earth
Strong hibiscus and coconut flavour, with a sweetness from the strawberries and pineapple. Can taste perfume-y when oversteeped. Quite a sweet tea, but not cloyingly so; it maintains a pleasant tartness from the hibiscus.
Flavors: Coconut, Hibiscus, Strawberry, Sweet, Tart
Strong artificial watermelon flavour (not a bad thing) that I found to be reminiscent of watermelon flavoured Jolly Ranchers. It was not sour in the way that strong hibiscus teas are; it’s not tart. Very smooth mouthfeel with no astringency that I’ve noticed in other tart or sour teas. A very sweet tea that works best iced.
Flavors: Melon, Sour, Sweet
A very light oolong tea with hints of strawberry and a slight creaminess. Quite sweet due to the cane sugar being the third ingredient, but not achingly so. Very easy to drink and only slightly perfume-y.
Flavors: Creamy, Jasmine, Smooth, Strawberry
DAVIDsTEA carries three jasmine-scented green teas currently, and this is the lowest grade of their offerings. I found it to be an average jasmine green tea, similar to what I’ve gotten in restaurants, but nothing special. Compared to their Butterfly Jasmine or Dragon Pearls, the Silk Dragon Jasmine is more astringent and oceanic. Tastes more perfume-y than other jasmine teas I’ve tried.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine
