5 Tasting Notes

From David’s Tea, I knew I shouldn’t expect anything less than perfection. The smell in the bag was enticing enough. I told my fiance to pick out a tea since I had so many to try and she just threw the bag, I didn’t argue since it was David’s Tea, and I’m quite impressed.

At first I was a big skeptical, mixing black tea with red tea didn’t seem like a delicious idea but the ingredients said otherwise, hints of jasmine in between. Overall the experience was fruity, but that nice red and black tea taste reminded you that this wasn’t grandmas house. I would love to stock on this tea more.

Flavors: Berries, Fruity, Jasmine

Is it this tea? http://steepster.com/teas/davidstea/11899-three-wishes-tea
If so, I like that tea a lot! I also like “Glitter & Gold”, so pretty to brew.

Oh no, that sucks! I have had some good mate and horrible mate (as with any tea).

To be honest, I don’t understand the bad reviews but as well I’m just starting out and new to tea. I did taste a fresh fruit flavor but nothing that was orange, I did add a packet of sweetener to the cup.

I did taste cinnamon and other flavors that a Roobios has, and I was generally satisfied with the tea.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

So I just got this Oolong from a very nice gentleman who sent me a few. I instantly broke out the tea maker and danced around like I had a bag of weed in my hand, I was excited. At first I didn’t smell it in the bag, but I could already tell it was going to be good. I love how it can actually be resteeped for full benefit.

So out of the tea maker I notice it has a spinach smell to it, and a bit of a spinach taste, but do not let this deter you! There is a creamy buttery, floral orgasmic taste that flows down my throat, letting me know that life is good and tea is the key to happiness. I cannot express my gratitude towards the man who introduced this to me, let alone be able to part with such an amazing tea.

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Floral, Spinach

When i first got into tea, I was a bit skeptical because when I used store bought dusty bag Chai it didn’t come out like I expected it to and I generally just let it sit in my shelf.

Loose Leaf is a whole different story. The smell, the taste, the way it just calms me down is amazing. Honestly if I were to have just one tea in my life it would be this ( Subject for change lol.) As I type I am boiling water so I can fully brew at its correct temperature. I was probably brewing around 150 degrees and the tea still came out wonderful, albeit the taste was more like water, the smell can make up for it.

I definitely recommend this tea for anyone who hasn’t tried it, I never thought I’d like Rooibos, but i’m hooked now.

Flavors: Cinnamon

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

My name is Jessie, i’m new to tea but i’m headstrong into the hobby. My love for tea will grow and I can see myself drinking, brewing, and overall being in the community for years to come.

I’m switching from coffee for a more broad spectrum of flavor and overall health benefits. I am willing to try all manner of tea and form an opinion of each.

At the moment my favorite tea, which I got with my starter kit has been a Rooibos Chai. The flavor and the smell combine perfectly into a nice relaxing drink.

I do have a Sakura Allure herbal that is more floral. These types of tea I tend to drink when i’m just in the mood for more of a sweet tea. Though i’ve yet to try White Tea i’d love to taste the natural sweetness!
