270 tasting notes

I received this as a sample with my last order. I don’t keep DT samples around too long because I’m trying to go through most of their teas, pick out the ones I love and move on.

I don’t think this will make my shopping list, it is too nut heavy for me. My sample packet had two huge halves of a Brazil nut, two raisins and a skimpy amount of tea. I was tempted to blend it with something else to add more base but it would have defeated the purpose. So I put less water but I think I should have gone with even less than I did.

I sweetened it but it is not necessary. I was just in the mood for something sweet. And after the initial unadorned tasting sips I added caramel creamer. Now it’s good! Caramel, Brazil nut and coconut.

5g sample pack, 7 oz water, boiling water, 4 minutes. Predominantly nutty brew, not astringent in the least. ( I don’t get much of anything after the Brazil nut but they say there’s coconut here)

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

Really……….. I’m looking for a predominantly nutty tea. All the ones I’ve tried have been too apple/cinnamon to call nutty. I might have to try this if it’s heavy on the nuts. Not sure why I haven’t tried it.

This was a pleasant surprise for me when I tried it. Definitely a nut-heavy tea.

Ya, this one is very nutty. Try not to skimp on the leaf on this one. :)

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 and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

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.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
