160 tasting notes

Well this is exciting…my 100th tasting note of teas from David’s Tea! I told the staff at the store how many I had tried the other day and they said that was more than most of the staff who work there and even gave me a coupon for a free cup of tea (which I have yet to use)! This tea was a recommendation by a staff member and, unlike most of the ones they have recommended, is actually one I had yet to try. The smell immediately hits you as being very citrusy, and strong. It reminded me of fruit juice (like a Sunny-D or even Five Alive). When steeped, it retains its smell quite well and I was pleased that the actual fruity taste was milder. I picked up about 20g of this tea, at the same time I went in for an Iced Tea Mug and tried Guava Cadabra, and when I got home, made it iced. Compared to the other mates I’ve tried from David’s tea, I found this to be slightly oilier; which reminded me more of a pu’erh. For me, the oiliness in this one is still light enough to be drinkable (unlike most pu’erhs) and I will absolutely have no problems finishing the 20g pouch over the summer. I also liked the fact that even iced, I was able to get 2 full steeps out of my tea bag. Overall, it is a nice tea and will definetely be great for the summer but I can’t see myself picking this one up again.

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!
