drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
17 tasting notes

On my tea latte roll now. I’ve had the read my lips tea plain (before I found this wonderful web site…) and felt it was time to try it as a latte.

The smell as it was steeping reminds me of the spiked hot chocolates I would make after a hike on the weekend (made with some creme de mint). Even has me wondering how it might taste with a small splash ;)

The taste is very light. Kinda like a very weak/mellow spiked hot chocolate… Not to chocolatey and not too minty – just right for when you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but want something (if you know what I mean).

My next though is that I’m now wondering how this tea would taste mixed with the Oh Christmas Treat – thinking chocolate mint Terry’s christmas orange…

As a treat, I sometimes use this tea as a base for a few tblspoons of hot chocolate and throw some irish cream in there, so although it sounds like it overwhelms the tea – it really doesn’t! This is a great tea for adding alcohol. ahem. continue on :D

I’ve got some rum, crime de mint, and possibly some grand marnier that I’m thinking may be good additions to my teas…

Oh perfect! Do it up for sure

My parents are British so I grew up drinking tea (usually earl grey or orange peakoe). A month ago while hanging at a local mall, waiting for my car service to be done, I came across David’sTea. Since then I’ve been in loose leaf tea heaven, and my wallet has even getting lighter ;)
