107 tasting notes

Daniel Scott drank NeoCitran

…Yeah, okay, it’s not tea. But as it turns out, I don’t have a lot of cold-busting teas in my cupboard. A few with lemongrass and/or ginger. And I’m getting sick of them.

But I used this one to make my Cream of Wheat today. Previously I’ve used Oh Canada from DAVIDsTEA, which also makes a good bowl of Cream of Wheat (if not a good tea), and Chocolate Orange/Oh Christmas Treat (also from DAVIDsTEA), which had a great chocolate-orange taste on top and a nauseating pu-erh taste underneath. (Note to self: pu-erh does not make great Cream of Wheat.)

This one makes an excellent bowl of mush! Tea taste is nice and light enough to not make the food taste odd. Strawberries come through decently; I wish they were just a little stronger…I’ll need to experiment. But with brown sugar added, this tastes a lot like when I was a kid and my parents would give me and my sister fresh strawberries to dip in brown sugar for dessert.

Steep time/temperature is how I prepared the tea before pouring it into the Cream of Wheat, obviously.

Bio

I’ve always been a tea drinker – I grew up drinking Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and their Chai, and considered myself to really like tea.

I’ve been working various retail jobs to put myself through higher education. One day at my store, a customer left a newly purchased bag of loose-leaf behind. We waited for three days for said customer to return, but they (likely not realizing where they had left their bag) did not return to claim the would-be brew. Too bad for them; lucky for me! I claimed the bag, took it home, and awkwardly made my first cup of loose-leaf tea with the only strainer we owned which was small enough.

I haven’t bothered with Tetley since. For the most part (and due to convenience), my patronage is limited to David’s Tea and Teavana. I also order from 52teas and Verdant Tea.

My rating system – hah, I don’t have a rating system. I rate teas a lot like Ebert rates movies. Everything’s relative.

I may often forget to mention it, but you can safely assume everything I drink is sweetened in one way or another – most rock sugar, or honey for green and white teas. I have not yet achieved drinking most tea clear. The few teas I drink unsweetened include milk oolong and genmaicha so far.

I currently work for Teavana. But I just work there, and my opinions about any of their teas are entirely my own and not meant to be reflective of the views of the company.
