drank Nepal Black by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

I recently went in to Davids and bought 25g of all their straight black teas (except for the Darjeeling, they were out of that one). I’m trying to develop a taste for straight, unblended black teas, and I’m starting with this one! I’ve been reading quite a bit about it but remember that I don’t really know what I’m doing.

But I liked this one a lot! It seemed to be naturally sweet, with just a bit of smokiness. It’s full-bodied but at the same time light. At first I thought there was no astringency whatsoever but it comes out in a pleasant way in the finish.
Hmmm, which tea should I try next?

I agree with developing a taste for straight, unblended teas. Whether black, oolong, green etc, strive to stay pure….

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
