1214 Tasting Notes
This is a really smooth EG creme. It’s supposed to also taste like lavender, but there was almost no lavender in my sample, so I guess they’d have to amp up the amount in order for that to be discernible. But the bergamot and creme flavors are delicious and meld perfectly with the black tea. It tasted best warm with some milk. I’m sad I only had a small sample because this one is pretty great!
Huh, I expected this one to be more special, but really, I only taste a boring, plain, somewhat astringent black tea. Hot, there was nothing cakey or desserty about it. I don’t even taste vanilla. With additions, it can be decent, but I’ve had much better cake teas. I added cake batter flavoring the last time I had it to give it a boost. Now I’m drinking the rest chilled, and I can’t tell if it’s the tea or the flavoring I added (probably the latter) but it tastes pretty good!
This flavor is pretty mild and a little indistinct. I guess I get a little dessertiness, and since I know it’s supposed to be orange and chocolate, I can sort of picture it, but I’m not sure how present those flavors actually are. I’m able to get two steeps each time, and I feel somewhat mixed about it. Some sips do taste pretty desserty and decent (and a little like jaffa cakes). Other sips taste slightly metallic and strange. And some sips just taste so medium. I add extra chocolate chips to my steeping basket, and I always drink it with milk.
The orange ended up a little fake for me. It’s the fake, powdery orange flavor you find in vitamins. And I don’t think there was enough vanilla/creaminess for me to taste specifically dreamsicle. I also didn’t get much underlying matcha flavor. Overall, I didn’t find this to be unpleasant, but they have lots of better flavors.
This blackberry flavoring is so strong! And it’s very clearly blackberry, which is fun to see. It’s a tiny bit artificial, but I can forgive it. I don’t taste much lavender, but maybe I’ll add some to my second steep – it’s just a hint, whereas I’d prefer 50/50. I’m drinking this cool with milk. I’m enjoying it for that strong blackberry flavor, but I don’t think I’d order it again.
This has some similarities to past DT melon teas I’ve tried, and I’d probably rank it sort of middle-bottom among its fellows. It definitely tastes more like melon candies than any real fruit – I guess I’m picturing a hard honeydew candy. It’s not tart, and it tastes decent cold. I guess I feel like it’s just lacking some personality. It can also be pretty thin and watery.
Thanks to amandastory516 for this tea! I procrastinated trying it for a long time because it’s honey flavored and I don’t like honey, but I’m glad I finally tried it! The honey flavor is definitely there, but it blends perfectly with the powdered green tea and really, it’s pretty good! It sort of tastes like lychee. It’s light and delicate, but nice.
I wish I’d tried this one before my recent 52teas order so I could have ordered more! It’s good! Nice fresh lemon with a bit of berry and some softness from the green rooibos. I’m having it cold, and it’s quite lovely. I coldbrewed a second steep, and that was great as well. It’s just so fresh and smooth.
