drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
318 tasting notes

I ran out of green tea at my house and decided to pick up two from DAVIDs (this and Green Seduction)

The loose leaf and flavoring smelled pretty good to me. When I brewed it at home, it just seemed way too sweet, and it also reminded me of caramel candies (which I don’t like)

My husband seems to like it, so it’s not a complete loss. I’m just not fond of overly sweet drinks.

Keep the steeping time shorter! If you understeep, you’ll get more of the greentea taste and less of the dried fruit flavour :)

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. I try to mostly short steep tea unless it only tastes better with a long steep. I’d rather experience what a tea tastes like over 3 or 12 steeps than just 1 to 3 long steeps.

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

How I rate tea:

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!)

85-89: Wonderful, couldn’t expect more but not a favourite.

80-84: 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.
