drank Mulberry Magic by DAVIDsTEA
111 tasting notes

Erm… oops? Apparently I forgot to set the timer. So about twenty minutes later I thought “this is the longest seven minutes ever.”

Then I looked at the infuser. “Oh,” I said. The mulberry leaves bloated with a vengeance. The liquor of the tea is a very angry pitch as midnight — but still somehow green. The thought “I didn’t know herbal tea could GET this dark” crossed my mind.

Smells like cooked spinach.

So um yeah. I’ll refrain from rating this until I make it properly. Considering all of the above it tastes surprisingly good, so this is a good sign that it must taste delicious when made properly.

I tend to steep this one for quite a while, since it doesn’t get bitter. 20 mins might be a bit extreme though! :) It’s less spinachy with a shorter infusion (but that is kind of the flavour of mulberry leaves, it seems).

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
