drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
223 tasting notes

Bought this for my partner who is a fan of apple pie. Tonight when I asked “what tea do you want?” The answer, not surprisingly was “whatever you’re having”. So I’m having this even though I knew I didn’t like it, just so she can drink it.

I can’t get too eloquent about a green tea that tastes like watery apple cider. If you leave it too long, well, it’s green tea, it will punish you. I did ok with just under three minutes at 180 but the resteep was forgotten, was more like 5 min and made for a bitter tea.

But really, on the whole, apple cider. Long aftertaste, probably because of the lingering cinnamon.

So far “lime gelato” is DAVID’s most enjoyable green tea and “Kokomo green” their worst. "North African mint (organic) " is so unlike green tea that you can be surprised when you read the label and see “green tea”

Kokomo green was terrible. :P Haven’t tried the other ones you mention, though.

Cavo — dry, it smells like nail polish remover. Brewed, it tastes worse than bitter melon. Maybe you like bitter melon?

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.
