Our annual New Year Star Trek marathon was a big success. I bought this tea for my sister, and she shared a cup with me. It has a nice coffee flavor, though not enough vanilla to deserve being in the name. Really I don’t notice vanilla at all, though it does have a nice desserty flavor. I’m enjoying it as a latte. Still prefer their fireside mocha flavor, but this one is quite decent.
DavidsTea Advent Day 7. I’m going to be lucky to finish all three tea advents by the end of January.
The coffee is strong in this one, with a sweetness I generally don’t prefer but feel like works well for the tea. I’m not a big fan of vanilla and this artificial version doesn’t much help. I could brew it and just smell it all day, if nothing else.
Flavors: Coffee, Sweet

I was worried that the apple and pineapple and rosehip would curdle milk for a latte so I asked Roswell Strange and then got impatient and made the latte anyways and topped it with a bunch of whipped cream. Then Roswell Strange informed me it was part of an Iced Latte Collection and I can see it.
I am a bit shocked this actually has a lot of vanilla and coffee flavors. People are obsessed with this in the DAVIDsTEA fb group and while it is good, this is not a flavor profile I personally would reach for very often. Yet I am enjoying this latte very much, despite this actually having stevia in it since I think the coffee provides a nice counterbalance to the sweetness that stevia contributes. Plus, the milk could be muting it too. This is a nice tea but I don’t need more of it.
Grabbed this puppy on sale. The first time I drank it was when I was helping people move, and let me tell you, this isn’t a Refreshing Help People Move Drink.
It tastes more like creamy coffee than a cappuchino, but it’s still pretty good.
This morning I’m not helping anyone with anything. I’m wearing pajamas and trying to work up shower-energy.
Picked up this and the other two latte teas recently… pretty sure I got a newb tea guide because a) he forgot the tea type stickers on my bags, and b) he gave me way more tea than I asked for, which I let slide, but really didn’t want/need. I asked for 10g; he asked if 14g was ok, and then said that he probably couldn’t get exactly 10 (as if, every other tea guide can do that like a pro). I went along with it and said I just wanted two cups worth… and for the other two, he gave me massively heaping spoonfuls, to the tune of 20 and 22g. Basically double what I wanted. Clearly trying to hit some sort of sales goal, which again makes me think “new”, because I don’t get that sort of attitude from others. Anyways, what’s done is done.
So this tea. I previously remarked that it seemed to be pretty similar to Bird & Blend’s Affogatea – but it looks like that note, and a handful of others I wrote at the time, never made it to anyone’s dashboards (when your notes have 0-1 likes, it’s very telling). But yes – it was very much like an iced cappuccino, which is what this tea is also touted to be like. I think this tea might be a little more pleasant-smelling, which may simply be from a little more sweetness (there’s a bunch of apple chunks?), but very much creamy coffee. As I guessed – this tea is sweetened, which makes it different from the B&B version, which was completely unsweet (and which I found to be a problem, though certainly a preferable problem to an overly sweetened tea!) It’s also a little lighter on the coffee, but there were probably twice as many beans in my cup of Affogatea, so again, not surprising. I probably like this one better, even though I’ve only had the tiniest of sips as it’s quite hot. I’m going to add milk to it shortly, since it’s supposed to be a latte (I’m obviously not making a latte, but I think a good dose of milk will give me the gist), and will update my note at that time. Until then – reasonably pleased with the flavour here, especially since DT has had a bunch of coffee-flavoured teas that completely dropped the ball for me.
ETA: added 2% cow’s milk in a 1:4 milk:tea ratio. It’s yummy but I expected it to be. Going to put the rest in the fridge to ice, just for curiousity. This is likely my favourite of the new teas; the others didn’t really stand a chance.
ETA again: Drank the last chilled, but I think I preferred it warm. It just tasted better, and the flavours were more unified. Cold, it was more like milk + flavouring.
Last of the new iced latte teas – one I was surprised that I enjoyed.
I’m not a coffee fan at all, and I have 100% been known to be really critical of coffee and tea hybrids but something about this one speaks to me!? Probably the sweetness; I know myself well enough to know that I really like sweet things. Is it accurate to a cappuccino!? Idk; you’re asking the wrong person! I don’t think I’ve had a cappuccino since I was like twelve (don’t ask). However, is it sweet and creamy with a nice vanilla note and a hint of coffee? Yeah, and I’m into that.
I will say, of the three in the collection this might be the one that I’d be most willing to drink without any added in milk – it’s just really nice as a plain tea, especially iced.
However, it’s damn sweet. Possibly the sweetest out of all these new teas? At least in my humble opinion, anyway. Sometimes I really like sweet teas – but I do prefer when I can control the level of the sweetness myself, and the fact this tea is so sweet does mean that I don’t drink it as often as I might if I was controlling the level of sweetness: it’s just a bit much sometimes!?
Still picked up 50g though…
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.
