DAVIDsTEA Back From The Dead Review

Every year around Halloween, DAVIDsTEA brings back seasonal teas that were well loved but discontinued “back from the dead”. The Back from the Dead coffin set contains 3 teas including Maple Sugar, Stormy Night and Swamp Water. Only 2 of these teas are available separately so to get the third flavour, you have to get the coffin set. Act now since this is a limited edition set and once they’re gone, these flavours might not be back next year!

DAVIDsTEA Maple Sugar Review

When I first heard of the name, it sounded so delicious and reminded me of Fall. Maple Sugar is a black tea that has medium caffeine and has ingredients such as apple, black tea, cinnamon and natural flavours. Unfortunately, since I had envisioned a nice smooth cup of maple syrup infused tea…. I was underwhelmed. It didn’t have a huge maple flavouring and the cinnamon was more present than I expected. It reminded me of a liquid cinnamon bun and when milk is added to the mix, I think it tastes even better!

DAVIDsTEA Organic Stormy Night Review

Stormy Night is a pretty interesting cup of tea due to the number of ingredients present in the blend. It’s a black tea base with coconut, chocolate and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Honestly speaking, I didn’t particularly enjoy this cup of tea. The flavours work well together, but it’s not too overpowering… hardly enough flavour actually. But still not tasty enough for me to finish the cup. The loose leaf tea smells a lot stronger than the actual tea when brewed, so be careful if you’re buying it because it smelled strong! Since I didn’t like it by itself, I thought to try it with a bit of milk… but it still wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. The milk made it less spice-y but didn’t change the way I thought about it.

DAVIDsTEA Swampwater Review

The last of the teas in the Back From the Dead Coffin Collection is DAVIDsTEA Swampwater. I was actually surprised that the tea turned into such an opaque green after being brewed! It looked intriguing being so accurately named… after I tried a sip, I was glad that it didn’t live up to its name. While the colour of the brew is strong, the flavouring is quite mild and reminded me of a sweet, fruity tea that I’d enjoy iced if it was much warmer out.
