drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

So I finally bought 100g tin of this, yay me!
I’ve never tried it hot before, and with Taryn going on everyday I had had enough of resisting! I needed it!

MMM chocolate-y, MINTY and teeny tiny peppery I love it! MMM so smooth and the mint is just right.

Imagine my dismay when I let my tea-despising coworker smell it and she HAD to try it (she thinks tea tastes like hot water). Yes! Now is my converting time, this tea will be perfect for her! So I make up a perfect cup, steep for 6 minutes for full flavour (no bitterness, I love this tea!) add a teeny tiny bit of agave to enhance the sweetness, and off it goes!
No response..?
I email her… yeah it tastes like bland hot water to her. She was happy to try it, but fears her tastebuds are to blame. I am in total dismay :(

Oh well. More for me!

There is DEFINITELY something wrong with her tastebuds if this one tastes like hot water. In my second steep this afternoon just the aroma drew comments from two co-workers. Also, yay 100g!! I think this might just be my cold weather tea.

I love Read My Lips. Something is definately wrong with your coworker. I steeped it again yesterday in vanilla, almond milk. So good.

Everyone I’ve shared it with (except the beau – he hates mint) has loved this tea. It’s wildly popular!

I know right?! Even my boss liked it, and she haaates chocolate teas (I think she has just never had a good one!). And even the smell itself ignites the tastebuds. so wtf?! haha thanks for confirming that she is indeed crazy, but at least she’s nice about it n_-

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!
