60 Tasting Notes
As I enjoyed the silky warm tones of Michael Buble and a relaxing manicure this evening I was tempted to try this nostalgic herbal. The scent definitely lives up to its name and I was transported to late autumn in the kitchen baking banana bread. A little more than I had for “Snow Bunny” I have to admit. The taste is also reminicent of the hearty baked good and I almost forgot that I wasn’t actually consuming a slice. Haha. I don’t drink banana teas that often but this could make me want to drink more.
I was also pleased to see currants in the blend for I have been making a lot of currant butter sauce with the local fresh currants as of late(now that the short season’s over you can guess that I won’t be doing this much more). The currant’s tart quality somehow warms the sweetness of the bananas in this blend and balances this sweetness out to a more comforting level.
A warm early autumn day just right for a bit of sprucing up the garden. It was after all the work was done did I decide to try this new blend. The lovely fragrance of roses gives this tea a perfume-like quality. The pistachios and almonds offer a tender warmth that tantalize the taste-buds from head to toe. The apple does provide just the right note in the background to add that token sweetness but doesn’t overwhelm. When the flavors meld together it definitely provides that picture of a romantic afternoon with its exquisite taste and fragrance. As someone who enjoys roses I was definitely left with a pleasant feeling after drinking this tea.
If you want a picture of what the autumn season is all about this is no doubt one of the places to start. The sweet deep flavor of pumpkin pie in a mug that is the best way of describing it. The spices and little pumpkin candies make this a very endearingly warm tea that begs to be savored slowly to get every nuance out of it. The scent itself is very alluring even to passerby’s who ask what the tea is. No matter the season this tea just fits perfectly for a “pick me up”.
As a lover of cinnamon teas I’d rank this as a mellower version of Glitter and Gold, my first favorite tea. The sweetness of the miniature marshmallows provides that special boost for the allspice and cinnamon in this black/green tea blend. I could see myself taking this along with me in my travel mug throughout the season as I strolled through the nearby golf course trail while enjoying the vivid changing leaves. To say nothing of the feeling that would envelop inside when the smell of chimney smoke began lingering on the brisk autumn air. The tea would be even more wonderful. A well recommended addition that I do hope will become a permanent part of the menu at DAVIDs.
The day after the first rainshower in a long time and to celebrate the coming of Autumn I felt that one of the best ways was to have a pot of the delectable “Mom’s Apple Pie”. The notes of cinnamon and apples accented in harmony with the green tea just paint the vivid image of a day picking apples in the orchard. Or a day at the Autumn fair spent enjoying the farm’s bountiful harvest. It is the fragrance that makes the most impact for the tea and inspires the heart to go and do some baking in the kitchen with those fresh delicious apples!
A refreshing cool early autumn evening,all is still and serene for a Friday. So while listening to the nostalgic sounds of KSQM and reading through “Bel Ami” I chose this delicious offering. The flavors of the ice cream is really well emulated in the blend. The sweetness is not too overpowering and satisfies the craving for dessert without the added calories. The warm fragrance adds to the effect of the tea and subtly paints the picture of that slice of cake. It’s definitely a keeper for the sweet tooth. <3
I most likely will have to try this tea hot. It tastes like Cherry coke and smells like it but somehow when it was cold it was too strong. I tried to drink it slowly in the car feeling that it would grow on me but strangely it didn’t work and I had to dump it in the sink. And for a David’s blend I was definitely surprised.
Currently drinking this tonight while typing this review. The fragrant notes and the warmth of the cinnamon really work to make this tea perfect for the turn of the season. It was one of my favorites next to Pumpkin Chai from the fall collection. Suffice to say I stocked up on this one. The mulberries really lent well to provide that caramel taste and I loved that fact.
It was last May at West Edmonton Mall when I first tried this tea. I had eaten something rather spicy at one of the restaurants on Bourbon Street. My stomach wasn’t exactly happy to say the least after that but after arriving to David’s I ordered one cup of this Spearmint tea it more than helped. The cooling effects of the mint as well as the medicinal notes settled the aches and I was able to go on with the rest of the day. Refreshed and re-energized.
I can remember like yesterday the first ever tea I tried at David’s. What entranced me most when shown this blend was the magical shimmering effect when the sugar crystals melted. It really did look enchanting and the scent was tantalizing. Slowly I would bring the cup to my lips to take in the full deep flavor notes. Mmm..the cinnamon sweet taste was just as wonderful as expected. It was not too overwhelming like some cinnamon teas and made me fall in love with trying more from the store. Ever since then I’ve been hooked and try to visit the store at least once a week.
