drank Chai by Harney & Sons
235 tasting notes

Not a fan. Almost has a bit of a Star Anise taste to it but not listed in the ingredients. Mostly tea dust with little bits of spice. I do smell the cardamom. Mostly I make this with water but I think it might be better with milk. Just adding a bit of milk didn’t work for me, I had to switch to evaporated milk. There are better chai teas…I don’t like most of Vadham teas but their Assam Chai is amazing…would get that over this any day.

Flavors: Star Anise

drank Scottish Morn by Harney & Sons

This is a strong black tea!! I like it. Small crushed leaves that looks visually different from all the other teas. Takes milk and sugar very well. I think I favor the Irish breakfast over this just a bit more but I do really like this one! I went to Barcelona for a few days and didnt bring any tea, I was so happy to come back home to this!!! Next time I am traveling with my tea.

Haven’t tried this one, but I’m glad to hear it’s a strong one — most Scottish breakfast teas I have tried in the past have been surprisingly mild.

Roxy, can you say what it is that you like more about the Irish breakfast?

Thanks.

Roxy King

I think it’s one of the strongest teas I’ve tried

Roxy King

I think it’s stronger than Irish breakfast. I think I prefer Irish breakfast because it’s a little more mild but this one is nice, I don’t really need something quite so strong. since I’m caffeine sensitive but I didn’t have toooo many issues with this one :)

AuntTea

Roxy, thanks for posting more. I have tried both the Irish Breakfast and the Scottish Morn several times now, and I also prefer the Irish Breakfast. The Scottish Morn is stronger and the Irish Breakfast seems to be more complex in flavor in a way I like.

Eh…I was expecting to love this. I love Earl Grey and I think I love creamy teas. But it tasted exactly like an Earl Grey Rooibos I had a few months back…I guess I’m tired of that flavor and wasn’t expecting it in this tea. It really doesn’t taste like Earl Grey …just weird and artificial. Disappointing.

drank Jumpy Monkey by DAVIDsTEA

Not bad, I was thinking it would have banana, anything with monkey in the title tends to make me think bananas. Anywho, it does have a strong coffee taste, lotsa visible coffee beans- green beans etc. its nice although pretty sweet on its own. Liked it most as a latte. Good for coffee lovers that are looking to switch to tea…

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…

drank Bumbleberry Burst by DAVIDsTEA

Very berry….Maybe currants? Surprisingly nice. I haven’t had many puerh teas and was very pleasantly surprised by them. Never thought you could get such a fruity tea. Mostly drank it cold but its nice hot too. Most berry teas that tends not to be true. I wouldnt buy again but I enjoyed it.

drank Maple Syrup Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
235 tasting notes

No particular flavor that stands out, just tea thats sweeter than normal. Not
Memorable. You can do the same by adding maple syrup to any old tea- or your fave.

gmathis

That’s kind of how I felt about it…the added goodies overwhelmed the tea.

Roxy King

Yeo very bland, I had high hopes because I love almost anything with Maple. Ill try to make
My
Own I think.

drank Vanilla Cappuccino by DAVIDsTEA

Starbucks Vanilla Frap…is this you? I don’t drink a lot of coffee, can’t handle the caffeine. But I have had a vanilla frap from starbucks 3 or 4 times…years ago. I think this tastes like I remember. I like it..and it’s low caffeine. This one I am glad to have a larger size of. I’ve been drinking right though my sampler set. I had a back up of Davids Chai- which I don’t like and gave to my sister- not sure if she will like it, and this. I can’t wait to dig into it. Almost through with my sampler now. It does have artificial vanilla- probably helped by my vanilla sugar, which I make with tons of vanilla beans..It has a nice coffee flavor.

drank Hot Chocolate by DAVIDsTEA

It does taste like hot chocolate, but something is missing. Maybe I needed to brew it up with more milk because it was on the thinner side for hot chocolate. Idk, I think I would just rather drink hot chocolate
