drank Kanpe Tea by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

The houses on either side of ours have put in small above ground pools this week (there must have been a sale?) so I’m sitting here trying to enjoy myself on dry land with the sounds of water splashing all around me. So I’m taking out my large pitcher of Kanpe and trying to pretend that i also have a pool. if they splash hard enough I might even get a spray!

Getting back to this giant pitcher, sample sipdown, by the way, Dexter3657 so loved this tea that she sent me a generous sample thinking I will absolutely love as well and therefore will need a giant bag of it :) Not so.

This still tastes like apple cider to me, I think partly because of the cinnamon. I cold steeped it and am having it with a slice of lemon and some ice cubes. It is a pretty orange-pink tea but the only way for me to drink this is if I booze it up. It really is not a bad tea, I just don’t like apple cider. Maybe i should try this in the winter, hot, with a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick floating ’round.

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.
