DAVIDsTEA Imperial Sencha Tea Review

DavidsTea Imperial Sencha Tea Review Davids Tea Straight Teas Fall 2016

DavidsTea Imperial Sencha is the final of the three new traditional teas released this month.  If you missed them, I have already reviewed Ruby Oolong and Golden Monkey.  Like the others, Imperial Sencha comes with a fairly hefty price tag compared to their regular Sencha.  Though not as expensive as the black or oolong teas released this week. DavidsTea promises that their limited edition Imperial Sencha is fit for an Emporer.  With a rich umami-rich flavour, oceanic aroma and pure green colour it is[Read more]

DavidsTea describes Ruby Oolong as having notes of ripe plum, caramelized apple and quince.  This unique oolong brews well at high temperatures and will never get bitter. Perfect for an[Read more]

DavidsTea Halloween Teas - Back From The Dead Halloween Coffin Teas 2016 Swampwater, Stormy Night, Maple Sugar

As I mentioned last week, DavidsTea brought three teas back from the dead this year for Halloween.  The Back from the Dead teas are usually seasonal teas that were well loved.  Since two of the included teas are only available online, I imagine that the coffin displays will sell out quickly.  So you want to pick one up soon.  The DavidsTea Back from the Dead coffin includes Maple Sugar, Stormy Night and Swampwater.  Full ingredients and steeping instructions for these teas can[Read more]
