drank New Delhi Delight by DAVIDsTEA
163 tasting notes

I dropped in today on my way home from the city. When I walked in, it was not busy at all but of course I took forever to pick a tea to try; I always try something new when I go in. Lets just say it’s pretty bad when you look up at the huge wall of tea and see the contents of your pantry! I decided to try this one as my mom told me she tried it last week and loved it. I really love Indian food and the spices they use in their cooking so I figured this would be good. I also love that it is based on Ayurvedic medicine. The smell is really complex and is truthful to the complex taste of this tea. The depth of flavour really allows each of the spices to come through individually and finish together. I had this tea before a heavy lunch and was pleased that I had no digestive issues (so I guess the tea worked!) overall, I think this was a nice cup of tea. It was really different from any of the teas I normally gravitate towards so I can’t see myself stocking up but I would definitely have this tea again…especially before a big meal! As I am using my phone and can’t rate I will just mention here that I am giving this tea an 80.

Bio

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
