11 Tasting Notes

I think I am a bit biased because I am writing this tasting note after I have already went through two small boxes of this. Everyone keeps saying that they thought it did well for a “bagged” tea. Honestly I don’t see what is causing such a bad rap for bagged teas. If someone cares to enlighten me, I would appreciate it.

My review: I love this tea. It’s my go to tea. Especially when I have had an awful day at work or in class. I bought a big box of English Breakfast and all though I tolerate it, I prefer this much more. Coincidentally, my boyfriend likes English Breakfast so he has been using it up for me.

Well…..where to start..

I purchased this tea because I am new to this whole tea scene and I have heard good feedback from consumers of DAVIDsTEA…

Frankly, I don’t care for it. The Jasmine is way too strong. I tried drinking it plain and it’s awful. I added some honey and it helped a little but not enough for me to even want to really finish the cup (I will because I don’t like to waste).

It seems to me like I am drinking a liquid candle.

CORRECTION:
Water was not boiling. It was at 180 degrees.

Smells great…
Taste was similar to what every one else has said. Really cake and oil after taste..

In the midst of all of the holidays I haven’t really had time to try a new tea. Today I received my order from DAVIDsTEA and decided to give a new tea a shot. This tea is very aromatic and definitely smells wonderful. I think it would be better had I of steeped this in milk or added some milk after steeping.

I gave this an 86 mainly because I feel it has a strong aftertaste.

Do you drink this with milk or cream? I think that it is a decent Assam-esque blend. Not sure whether it is Assam or not, but it’s definitely in that general neighborhood!

Well… I tried this tea with semi – high hopes and I was let down. I have never had a rooibos tea before.. not sure if it was that or the “vanilla” that left me with an unsatisfied impression. I tried making a latte out of it also, my first time doing that as well.. I am still not impressed. I will leave this in my cupboard in case my taster changes in the near future.

I had extremely low expectations for this tea—which were surpassed. I tried it as a refill while in a Starbucks store. It was surprisingly good, given that it sounded as though it was going to be horrible!

Normally when I think of mint it is paired with another flavor.
This tea was very minty and very pure. I was pleasantly surprised by its bite and ability to be very refreshing.

I love this tea. I recently purchased a whole Tazo tea kit that has six samples of quite a few of their flavors. I would steep for a shorter amount of time though.

I’ve never tried a chai tea before. I absolutely love it!! It has a very smooth taste with a bite of spices. I am very pleased.
