50
drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
96 tasting notes

I tried this tea at the mall when going for a job interview on the weekend. I absolutely loved it! So nutty and creamy and chocolatey…reminds me a lot of Choconut Oolong actually.

I did end up landing the job, by the way. I now work at a chocolaterie and I love every minute. However, after work yesterday stupid me went into my local Davids and bought this on a whim without really looking at what was in it. The fact that there’s sugar in this really pisses me off. Is there really any need to pre-add sugar into their teas? What the hell?

Thus, why it gets a 50. I don’t appreciate being tricked into consuming sugar.

Maybe they are trying to follow Teavana’s lead with those god awful samarai chai rock sugar samples they push on you with every order. :/
Congrats on landing the job! It’s great to do something you love for work!

I wouldn’t doubt it. I hate it when companies try to cram things down your throat. I hope this isn’t a trend for DT.
Thanks guys :)

Bio

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
