127 Tasting Notes
Just bought this tea from DavidsTea. I had a hard time deciding which straight black tea I wanted. I usually like dark musky black teas that can stand with a little milk and sugar. I even did a little taste test with my favorite black tea. Copper Knot from Teavana. I brewed both for 3 minutes, same amount of water and same temp. The Black needles had a sweet smell, and very light color like scotch. It had a smooth honey taste, no astringency from it .
I have been drinking it without milk or sugar, its that smooth. love it
This is a whimsical tea. I love it.I was trying to figure out exactly what it reminded me of. There it is…..Liquid
Love the coconut. I had my shipment of DavidsTea sent to my work. I opened it there and lets just say everyone wanted a little taste.
Well I bought this tea because it was on clearance and I love all of the ingredients. When I smelled it for the first time it smelled like a baked plum. When I brewed it I could smell the hibiscus and licorice more then the plum. With the first sip I would taste the plum right away then the licorice towards the back of my mouth.
Then came the hibiscus and the licorice again. The plum disappeared on me.
Nice. Smooth and smoky. I like it with a touch of milk. Lately I have been drinking it without any milk…I like it even better. This is my go to black tea. Still one of the only teas I will continue to buy from Teavana.
good and smooth. Not one spice is over the other.
One of my favorite dessert teas. A touch of cream and a little honey…mmmmm good.
I love REAL licorice tea. I think it’s pretty simple yet complex. One of my go to teas. It is one of the only teas that I will always buy that is bagged. I will not quit it…lol. It is a staple for me. With a touch of cream it is a delight. I have even made it on the stovetop with milk, then put it in the fridge to cool.it makes a nice ice tea.
I have even surprised a few friends that swear up and down that they hate licorice. I pour them a glass of this over ice, and they lap it up. Which makes me laugh since they keep saying they hate licorice, but love this.
Love it. The coconut and lemongrass make this a nice tropical getaway from the traditional masala chai. Mmmmm…good.
Vanilla is the star of this tea and it should be. It’s a nice soothing treat at the end of the day. Although the vanilla is at the fore front the other spices do hit afterwards. After I swallowed the third sip I could taste them more, which made me even happier since I love chai. When I first smelled it before brewing I was a little worried that the other spices would be lost. They are there…
