6 Tasting Notes

77

Had this as an iced latte last week. Thanks for the DAVIDsTEA staff who gave this to me on the house, you rock!

I found it tart, but maybe there was not enough agave nectar to my taste. It wasn’t a bad thing though, you have your bitter strawberries and your sweet ones! Very refreshing. Think I will try this warm sometime.

drank Chocolate Orange by DAVIDsTEA

Okay, I realized I had some of this stuff at home from my Christmas Collection gift set, so I decided to give it another try.

I think I found the secret to make this tea work for me – milk! I found the flavour was much more balanced this time around, and made for a much more enjoyable tea experience. I re-adjusted my rating for this: it takes a bit more effort but it definitely pays off when it comes to flavour, lots of sweet chocolatey-orange taste.

I’m about to go for a resteep and I’ll see how it holds up. I still have about three or four cup fulls worth of tea leaves left, then I’ll decide whether to add this to my collection or not. (:

I don’t mind hibiscus so this tea gets a thumbs up from me! I find I can get two steeps out of one serving in my travel mug (4 tsps) so that’s a great bonus. Just the right amount of tart. Haven’t tried it iced, anyone recommend it?

Delish! This one was suggested to me because they were out of Goji Pop (which I STILL haven’t tried). Nice and fruity with a cinnamon kick, and all for a good cause! This is my next buy, for sure.

This was my go-to tea when I lived in St. Pierre! A mellow taste with a bit of spice, and a wonderful chocolatey scent. I kept the steep time short – I found that the taste got murky the longer you steeped it.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I only had this as a hot take-out tea when stopping by DAVIDsTEA today. Someone on staff recommended it to me (they had just restocked it), and being a fan of Terry’s Chocolate Orange I had to try.

I was a bit disappointed, to be honest! I had it with one pump of agave. The first few sips were delicious, full of chocolate, but about halfway through the cup it wore off and became bland. Maybe I let it oversteep?

I do love chocolate teas however, so it’s likely I’ll try again.
