drank Happy Kombucha by DAVIDsTEA
225 tasting notes

Meandering out and about Toronto`s Queen St. E for the Jazz fest I went into DAVIDs. They were sampling Happy Kombucha. I was there to refill Love Tea #7 and upon trying this I bought 24 g. I don’t know what Kombucha is. I could look it up but I don’t care enough. I like the name. The tea, well, it’s sort of mango oolong. Lots of mango and little other stuff but that works for me. It’s mango madness but oolong instead of white. I have a feeling 24 g is not enough for I like mango in tea.

From what I understand, kombucha is fermented tea. I thought you had to make it as a liquid – ferment sweetened tea. So I am unsure what the Davids Tea blend is. I have never tried either form of kombucha.

Yeah, it’s fermented. From what I remember, this blend has powdered kombucha in it.

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.
