drank Wintergreen Woods by DAVIDsTEA
1527 tasting notes

It was pretty hard to measure out this tea as the leaves and pine needles wouldn’t fit in my scoop, so I ended up guesstimating the correct amount. I don’t see any tinges of pink in the steeped tea, but then there weren’t too many sumac berries that I could see in the blend to begin with.

It’s rather unfortunate that this tea tastes mostly like watery Pepto Bismol – not surprising I guess since PB is flavoured with wintergreen. So it isn’t the poor plant’s fault that its flavour immediately brings stomach medicine to mind, I gues,s but it does make it harder to enjoy this blend.

When I make this tea I fill my travel mug to the top with the leaves and then drink it through the steeper. I find that to be an ok amount because the leaves are really big and it doesn’t take alot. I have never tried pepto bismol so the taste problem has never occured to me.

I’m drinking this now… and I know what you mean about pepto!! which isn’t so bad, kindof calming on my throat. Though it is too weak- I wish I’d added more leaves

Wow..strange combo. With the pine in it, I’d think it’d have a floor cleaner whang to it.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
