drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

I bought a tin of this tea. Holy man. It almost makes me want to give away my Pink Flamingo and trade it in for more Kanpe. I am freaking obsessed with this tisane – although I’ll say it again, I would never ever ever drink it hot. Bleh.

But iced! mmm, it’s fruity, tart at the end of the sip, like a sour candy (I’ve sweetened with agave to cut a bit of the sourness and add the candy-like flavour), perfectly (lightly) spiced with cinnamon.
I think I need several hundred grams of this tea, strawberries, raspberries and oranges, a couple big bottles of cheap red wine – and I will have delicious tea sangria all summer long. But it’s only spring!

Oh well, I’ve started early.

I will say this, the only bad thing about this tea is it is heavy, bringing a tin of 100g to 14 bucks. :| I guess that’s what’s stopping me from buying a lot of it, so a treat it will remain!

Kittenna

Yeah, so I’m discovering about many of the “cheaper” herbals – they’re heavier and require 2 tsp – no bargain! In fact, perhaps more expensive than some of the white teas!

This is definitely one of my favourites, I compare it to cherry pie. Nom nom nom.

DaisyChubb

mm cherry pie, totally! It’s even “thick” feeling to remind me of that haha! Nor syrupy thick, but definitely not weak or watery. mm. I need another cup :D

This one is worth the price to me for now. We’ll see what happens when I drink it every day – it’ll be a good test! :)

I really enjoy this one hot. It was a great fill in for Pink Flamingo while it was gone in the fall. Still prefer my Pink Flamingo though.

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!
