1576 Tasting Notes
I tried a lukewarm sample at DavidsTea today. It was… meh. Mostly hibiscus with some cinnamon.
I think it would be better as a cold brew, but I’m not impressed enough with the hot brew to want to buy some to try a cold brew. If that makes sense.
The pumpkin mug is ADORABLE, though. And we were told they’re doing a mini Hallowe’en launch on maybe the 25th. So that’ll be exciting. Oh boy oh boy I’ll have to go into the store before work once I know when it’s happening.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Hibiscus
Thank you, MissB, for sharing this with me! :)
So the internet says the main flavour is vanilla, but I’m calling it an alternative Earl Grey. Mostly I taste citrus, with fruitiness and creaminess behind.
It’s tasty, I like it, but I still like H&S Paris better. :)
Thanks for letting me try this one!
Flavors: Citrus, Cream, Fruity
As a latte, with a little honey added. Pretty nice. Not sure if it’s exactly what I wanted, but I’m still enjoying it.
I just realized that today is actually Monday. I thought it was Sunday, wow. I’m not back at work for a couple more days, so maybe I’ll do a local hike tomorrow, with a cooked lunch on top of a mountain. :)
(1/3-ish cream, 2/3-ish water)
Overcast day, chance of rain. Perfect time for me to pull out some fall teas.
I still like this one, although I could do without all the candies. Nice spices, although I can’t really taste pumpkin. It went well with my kale and roasted squash salad.
Thank you SO MUCH to Dexter for sharing her bounty in free DavidsTea with me. :)
Yep, this is the tea I chose. And it’s been changed. The pineapple pieces are now HUGE, way bigger than the oolong balls. This makes it way harder to get an even distribution of tea & pineapple. I definitely preferred the tiny pieces of pineapple. I suppose I could pull them out and dice them up. :) I’ve done it for other teas!
The tea is still good, with lots of sweetness from the candied pineapple. I iced it, as I prefer to do. I’ll be able to get at least 2 more cups of iced tea from this set of leaves, as I didn’t oversteep, or force them to open by stirring. Heh.
Definitely a tea I like to have around. I don’t need much as I don’t often drink oolongs, but it’s so nice to have once in a while.
(With ice to make 16 oz.)
Still not loving this tea. I added some maple syrup to see if I could bring it out of the “I don’t like LB” territory, but it hasn’t really worked.
I’ll finish the cup, but could I add the package (about 1/2 full!) to anyone’s box?
At least I have pyrahi. http://instagram.com/p/sXp1fDx5LG/
My wee tin of this blend is getting so incredibly low! And that’s after getting 100g of each of the teas. WOW. Definitely something on my To Buy list, once my cupboard starts shrinking a bit more.
Still love this tea. Even when I do things like add powdered milk to it, because I still haven’t purchased fresh groceries.
