DAVIDsTEA Toasted Walnut Tea Review

Good Afternoon Friends,

Today I’d like to talk about this really wonderful tea I tried for the first time today. As you may or may not know, I am not usually a fan of green tea, but once again, my expectations have been blown away by another one of DAVIDsTEA’s.

Toasted Walnut-Green Tea-Low Caffeine
Steeping: 3 minutes at 170ºF (76ºC) – .18oz (5g) tea- 16oz ( 475ml) mug
Aroma: light fresh grass, coconut, tropical fruit, maple walnut
Flavor: light, earthy, and vegetal with a perfect blend of coconut, pineapple, and nuttiness
Liquor: light golden honey

If I had to describe this tea, I find this tea to be perfect for the transition of seasons: from it’s light, sweet tropical fruit taste of Summer that moves into a welcoming of the warmth and hearty nut flavor that’s reminiscent of Autumn. I mainly enjoy and prefer black, pu’erh, and lapsang teas because of their boldness and earthiness. This tea felt to me that it possessed that earthiness but without that bold intensity that black and earthy teas have, which is a nice change. All around, I found this tea to be very enjoyable, and I definitely plan to order this in the future!

One thing, of many things, that I like about DAVIDsTEA’s is their sample sizes and variety of said samples. When you spend a certain amount on their tea, you’re able to choose up to 3 samples. They’re a small .18oz(5g) package of tea with it’s name, description, ingredients, and brewing instructions. To me, I find this very thoughtful and helpful for those whom either have allergies/sensitivities, or people like me who want to know how to get the most out of their cuppa with some recommended instructions. The only thing I would change about the samples is the brewing temperature indicator. For example, on the toasted walnut tea sample, it just states that the water should be hot without a direct temperature. I feel that adding an actual temperature suggestion would be more efficient for proper brewing, especially for someone new to tea. All around, I was really impressed with this tea, and would rate for a green tea, an 8/10.

I have a few more sample packs to try and review, so please look forward to more tea reviews soon!

Here is a link to the tea for those interested as well as a link to the sample pack that it comes in.

DAVIDsTEA English Toffee Tea Review

Good Morning Friends,

It’s been quite some time since I did a review, let alone one on tea! I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the change of seasons. Here in New York, I’m enjoying the weather finally cooling down enough for me to wear my lovely fall sweaters and to bake some very yummy cookies, but most important of all, I’m able to cozy up to a nice, warm cup of tea.

I decided to pursue DAVIDsTEA for a few reasons. I’ve always been recommended their tea by friends, they have a very strong and popular following which made me curious to look at what they had to offer. When I checked them out, they have creative tea blends which are decently priced, cute mugs and tea brewing equipment-especially seasonal, and they have great deals quite frequently on their website. Speaking of said sales, I decided that for my first purchase from DAVIDsTEA, I would try their best seller sampler pack.

English Toffee-Pu’Erh Tea-High Caffeine
Steeping: 4 minutes at 205ºF (96ºC) – 1 tsp/single cup
Aroma: chocolate, caramel, nutty
Flavor: bold, smooth earthiness with a subtle tone of chocolate and caramel
Liquor: dark molasses

An intense start to my morning, this tea’s bold and smooth flavor do not go unnoticed. What I enjoyed of it was the acute earthiness with the subtle tone of chocolate paired well with my light breakfast of french toast this morning. Another note that I enjoyed about this tea was the inviting aroma that it possesses: the warmth of fresh chocolate mixed with caramel and a nuttiness that made me want to pair it complimentary with a Heath bar. All around, I can see why this tea has such great reviews and it raved about by its fans. I rank this tea as an 8/10.

Thank you for reading my review, below I have posted links for those whom are interested in trying this tea or the sampler pack. Until next time, may your tea be delightful and brewed to perfection.
