drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

Dang. Someone at work said this was their favourite DAVIDs tea. I don’t know the woman at all so of course I didn’t buy this because of what she said. I bought it, coincidentally, just the weekend before having had this conversation. I didn’t open the tea until today.

To me it smells and tastes like banana bread. Not the banana part, but the spices part. Although I taste nutmeg not cinnamon. I can just see the moist pieces of banana bread in my mind as I drink this. The colour screws it up for me, I really don’t know why it has to be pink.

Not my favourite, not by far. Glad to have tried it but sample size was enough. Moving on.

Dry nose: roasting nuts. Clear pink liquor with aroma matching the nose. Flavour… Apple Nutmeg. Sorry, can’t say almond cause it ain’t there!

Yeah…. this one is misnamed as a nutty tea in most people’s opinions!

Profile

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.
