drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
570 tasting notes

So I got this treat in the mail today from jessiwrites :)

And hello maple! The medicinal taste is definitely lessened, I’m thinking from the from the sheer amount of caramel and toffee that must be in here. This one is up there for the rooibos’ I’ve tried thus far. Whenever that medicinal taste is diminished I have hope.

I’m going to try a second steep to see if it’ll will be better for me. Thanks again jessiwrites for the tea and the second steep tip!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, 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 always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). 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 chocolate flavour), rhubarb, to be continued…

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
