drank Winterberry Wine by DAVIDsTEA
302 tasting notes

I’ve decided that I don’t really enjoy cider-type drinks. So I added some black tea (mystery brand!) and milk (1 teaspoon of winterberry wine, 1 teaspoon of black tea and I eyeballed the milk). Unfortunately the black tea I used gets undrinkable after 3 mins, so the spices didn’t get to sit for the full 6 mins.

I like this combination a lot better. Its like a sweet and fruity chai with a bit of a kick (not much of one unless you spike it w/ something else).

Like I said, I am not crazy about cider but I am looking forward to working it into some other teas I want to get rid of. Some peppermint or sencha are next on the list of things in my mind to throw in with Winterberry Wine. Or perhaps I will mix the Chocolate Chili Chai with this too, since I hardly drink that.

Will I buy more Winterberry Wine when I run out? No. But I am enjoying mixing it with other tea I have. :)

Note: This isn’t a bad drink, I just don’t care for cider (“fruity spiced water”).

Very helpful review. Thanks.

I’ve been eyeing this one and wasn’t sure about it. I do enjoy ciders, so I think I’ll be ordering some of this to try out! Thanks!

Thanks for the comments, sorry this particular review wasn’t very informative. Its not an impressive cranberry cider, but it is enjoyable.

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

80-89: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
