drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
689 tasting notes

So this one smells like cinnamon hearts, yum right? But once it steeped there’s that pu’erh scent underneath it all. I steeped it for 3 minutes this round, since the suggested steeping time of 4-6 didn’t seem to be working for me.

It’s definitely more cinnamon heart than pu’erh but still there’s that faint underlying taste I don’t care for. I suppose I could try steeping it for less again.

Update: As it cools, the cinnamon comes out much more and the pu’erh is almost gone. There may be hope after all!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
