I’m trying to blaze through tasting the bits of all of the new Davids teas today, so I can place an order online for Santa’s Secret before it’s sold out. I may already be too late!
So, given that fact, I’m trying this one right after trying Splash! for the first time, and I may be over-gingering myself.
I like the smell of this one a lot – just like ginger beer. Spicy and sweet.
The flavour is actually a bit flat when compared to the smell. My first cup was just a 3-minute steep, so I put the leaves back into the pot to see what might happen. And still, it’s a bit flat for my taste. I want more punch! I also wish there was more of a green tea profile.
I’m giving this one a firm meh. I think that if I’m looking for a ginger hit, there are other teas I would turn to first.
