drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
461 tasting notes

Merlin tea time. Don’t think I’ve had a julep before. If it smells like this, I want one. The minty/ tropical scent is what interested me in the store. Mmm… the flavour is fruit and mint. Without the mint being too strong.

(Maybe I need to have it cold, with rum.)

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I had the same thought about the rum!

It is really good cold, but I have no rum.

I haven’t had this type of mojito before. It smells really good. Like the Chiffon and coconut. While I’m used to mint, the flavour is a nice blend of coconut and citrus flavours. (Now I must try it iced.)

This smells really good. Perhaps not exactly spun sugar, but still a very nice scent. The flavour reminds me of David’s Birthday Cake. Except the sweetness isn’t so strong, which works better.

This is really good as a cold brew.

This tea smells like it is trying to be fudge. Doesn’t really taste like it though. I think other companies have spoiled me for chocolate teas. It is better with almond milk and rock sugar.

I like when they send me free samples. This happened to be one of them. Mmm… berries. The scent is nice. Kinda reminds me of jam, at first. And the flavour is more mild. Maybe needs vanilla (but I say that about many things).

This was something I got in the middle of summer. It smells so good, like root beer. The flavour is there as well. This was one of those teas that should be brewed more often iced, and a little sweet. (Took a bottle of it iced with me to a Fourth of July event… was so glad I did.)

Preparation
Iced 5 min, 15 sec

I tried this in the Teavana store again. It was actually cold this time. There is still a sweet, fruity flavour. A little too much sugar, but the blueberry, pineapple, and hibiscus was much better cold.

Well, that is certainly fragrant. The flavour is more mild. Good, but needs vanilla. (I ended up having mine with vanilla almond milk.)

I don’t seem to have enough plain (unflavoured?) black teas, so I got this on a recent road trip. I originally like the scent, but it turned out to be a tea I wanted to try anyway. It has a mild citrus flavour. Good for a morning cup with almond milk. (Have it warm though.)

Oh, maple, how nice you smell! I can’t have anything maple without thinking of waffles/ pancakes. I do have another maple tea, but it’s black. This has a great flavour as well. Nice creamy, and sweet. Reminds me of these candies I like, or maybe fudge. (Now I must have it with waffles.)
