Earlier this week a bunch of returning fan favourite teas launched for the Spring as well as a couple of new and new(ish) teas – I love these big batches of returning teas, though it always feels so hectic during launch week, especially when I have to write tasting notes for a whole slew of new teas all at once. That said, I say “have to” even though I know no one is forcing me to – but I just feel this compulsion to and it would bug me more if I didn’t…
Here’s the list of returning teas from this week:
Cherry Blossom (Yay!)
Coconut Oolong (The OG recipe – NOT the lemongrass one!)
Blueberry Vanilla (Same tea as Berries & Cream, just renamed)
Mango Fruit Punch
Lemon Pound Cake
And for new(ish) teas we have this tea and Strawberries & Cream, which was previously a subscription box exclusive tea. This one is brand new, though.
I could wax poetic about it for ages because I love it a lot – but ultimately I think describing the flavour is quite simple because it’s just so straight forward and spot on: it tastes like a Creamsicle. Very flavourful and sweet orange with a creamy finish. I love it hot and plain, but the sweet spot? Iced latte, baby! Sooo good!
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.
