58 Tasting Notes
I just got a free cup of this with my purchase thanks to the absolutely lovely Davids people! It’s pink! How lovely! I don’t love the actual tea as much: It’s almost cloyingly sweet, more like, well, pink lemonade powder. As in, it tastes fake. But it does taste EXACTLY like pink lemonade, so, success on that count, and if you like pink lemonade then you’ll probably like this.
Okay, SO I don’t really like this hot. At all. But today the orders at Davids got mixed up and I took this iced cup of Forever nuts because it was extra and I didn’t want to wait. It’s FANTASTIC iced. I really like it. So, I’ve now had a cup of really lovely tea and am now sitting down to catch up on Doctor Who. All is right in the world.
I got this as an I-just-finished-and-probably-failed-my-first-exam tea, and I’m pretty glad I did. I’m not generally a big white tea drinker, but I’m getting more into it. This has a pretty floral taste, but isn’t too perfumey. However, I am getting an icky aftertaste. Darn it. Also, I think there’s artificial flavouring in this one, which makes me sad. Still, it was nice, and I’m going to be finishing the .6 ounces.
Well, I’m back. My absence was caused for several reasons, but basically I haven’t been on Steepster since the beginning of February. I apologize to my trades ; everything is coming, i promise (cross my heart and hope to die, pinky swear, etc.) I missed it though!
This tea: I wanted something ginger, and rooibos sounded nice. But this tea is just sort of thin. There’s a lot of spice from the ginger and peppercorns, but I want something to ground it a little. I usually add some of my own rooibos to it. Sometimes I mix it with chai, which I really like. I would definitely get this in large amounts and add rooibos to it, because ginger is delicious.
Hrrm. Well, it’s been a hectic couple of weeks, but I’m still alive! and back on steepster. And I’d like to apologize to the people i’ve traded with; your items should be coming very soon.
This tea is odd. I liked the very first cup out of the bag, but then something went wrong. I usually don’t like Davids cinnamon teas, because they taste weird to me (I think the cinnamon has a weird aftertaste), but several people told me that this was good, so i got it It just leaves this weird taste in your mouth. blech. And it made my mug smell weird for several days. Well, whatever. Also, I’m sick and drinking lemony honey filled rooibos :)
So, I’m listening to The Velvet Underground, preparing for a very hellish week ahead of me, and I decided that I want a latte. I didn’t want caffeine, and I sort of wanted chai. Darn. But… WAIT! I have this from a long time ago. I didn’t love it, but oh well.
So I made it as a latte. And this is insane. ITS AMAZING.
Okay, well, maybe it’s not exactly mind blowing. Or near mind blowing. Oh, and I also added some crumbled ceylon cinnamon (like, crumbled from the stick). Well, okay. But it was still really yummy. And made me happy. Almost as happy as Spotify. No, not really. But sort of.
Thank you to Crystal for this!
I try not to rate teas from swaps, but this one was so wonderful I just had to. I really wanted a flavored black tea that still tasted like good black tea, and this is it! The strawberry scent is light and sort of floaty, the creme flavor sort of smooths things out, and the tea is sturdy underneath it all. The rose is there too, to finish it off delicately. I really like this, and my mom, who doesn’t usually like flavored blacks, loves it too!
There is a dry feel in my mouth afterwards, and the strawberry is more essence of than fresh fruits, but I still really love this tea!
