drank Jolly Jellybean by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

Maybe I did something wrong, but this really didn’t taste like anything to me.
I steeped for about 10 minutes, had close to 2 tsp of tea, and even had a jelly bean in there.

Well, I can taste a little bit of swamp water-ish taste, and I like that! But as the tea cools down, it tastes more and more like water. hum. Well, I got it just to get something, I didn’t really have anything in mind, so it’s not too much of a loss!

I might use up the rest or save some for a swap, we’ll see!

Kittenna

Ooh! Free portrait?! :D (I’ve always wanted a portrait done, haha.)

Also, I’m wondering if something went wrong with your cup of Jolly Jellybean. Mine tasted like fruitier swampwater, and wasn’t particularly weak. I wasn’t super thrilled with it, but it wasn’t bad! And the sample I had in-store was even good, with some lovely pineapple flavours. I’d give it another shot if I were you :)

DaisyChubb

I’ll try it again then! I was just so confused because it was boiling water and almost 2 tsp! But I will try again and maybe my rating is a little harsh lol! And you’re on the portrait list yay!

Kittenna

Yeah, it didn’t sound like you did anything wrong with it. Perhaps it’s just not for you!

And yay!

Amariel

I’m up for a free portrait. :)

Kay Kanada

DaisyChubb

Indigobloom

Cattibrie

I really enjoyed Jolly Jellybean when I first tried it. Sweet and swampwatery. I think I steeped it longer than recommended though.
Would love a portrait. Would you need to meet in person?

Angrboda

okay I’m in for a portrait if you can work from just a photo. :)

DaisyChubb

I’ll just use photos I think! If whoever wins is comfortable sending me a few photos or added me to facebook or whatever you’re comfortable with! I’ll pick a winner (or just winner #1 of many) later today :)

Kittenna

I was definitely assuming she was going to use photos :D As much as I’d love to travel to the east coast, I’m pretty sure my budget and schoolwork won’t allow it!

Kay Kanada

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
