1498 Tasting Notes
Chilly tonight, with all the windows open. Perfect to wrap up in a pile of blankets with the cat, and sip on some hot tea.
This one has a really nice bitter almond flavour over the rooibos, and is super good with cream. Such a nice treat tonight!
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.)
