drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA
566 tasting notes

Thanks sundaysipping for being awesome to send some of this my way, so I could have another go of it. :)

I will say it’s better than the first time around, not that that went badly, but I steeped it longer this time and it does seem more flavourful. I will also say, despite rarely, if ever, adding anything to my teas, it seems like a wee bit of sugar would help the flavour pop more.

I’m a little sad that I seem to be a bit over David’s, because it’s a Canadian company, and the employees at my local store are amazing. My tea tastes are evolving though, and you’ve just gotta go with the flow. I do keep David’s Guayusa and Genmiacha stocked in my cupboard at least . :)

This one is really good with some brown sugar. :)

I had a feeling brown sugar would make it tastier. I had only enough for one cup sadly. But perhaps if it comes back round next year. :) Thanks for the suggestion!

Courtney, if you ever want some, I bought an insane amount (over 300 g) so I have to spare.

Courtney

Hmm. That is tempting. Perhaps our next swap!

Yvonne

Profile

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…
