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.
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.
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.
