293 Tasting Notes

drank Tokyo by Harney & Sons
293 tasting notes

I rarely drink green teas and I’m always putting them off.. but since I was tinkering in the kitchen this morning, listening to Thrilling Adventure Hour & right there to pull the kettle off just before boiling, I thought I’d give it a try. It’s pretty yum, too. Will probably see how a resteep goes in a bit. ;)

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
293 tasting notes

Cavocorax, you’re right. This is different than it was. I remembering it being so squashy! But it’s just all cloves. :(

Cavocorax

Awww. I’m sorry you’re disappointed too. At least it still tastes awesome as a latte! (But order some from Della Terra!)

Ozli

Yeah, there’s a couple from Della Terra that I need to get ahold of. Packaged a bunch of stuff for you last night! One of my biggest post hurdles is actually getting around to physically putting things aside :P :P :P #oneday

Cavocorax

#oneday No rush bb! It’ll show up one day and BLOW MY MIND.

drank Currant Affair by DAVIDsTEA
293 tasting notes

I finally went to the DT in my town & as soon as I stepped in, the woman at the counter was all, “I have a sample for you!” and it was this. I was sold. Like, immediately. This’ll be my go-to decaf for a while. It makes me wish I had more Blueberry Jam! I miss that tea.

Cavocorax

Would you recommend my picking up 50g of this? I have an empty red tin I’d like to put rooibos in!

Ozli

How about I post you the sample today?? I’ll just mail that one & 1 other ahead in an envelope like you did. (But yes: it’s great!)

Cavocorax

That sounds good, if you feel like going out. Otherwise I’ll buy some on Friday. I have a budget that I am going to blow on the new teas! There’s going to be a gingerbread rooibos as well, so I guess I have to decide between Currant Affair and Gingerbread!

Ozli

I didn’t end up hitting the post office cuz my parcel is STILL NOT IN :( :/ :/

drank Irish Cream Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
293 tasting notes

OK, I enjoy matcha – but I can’t really rate it. I also can’t really taste it?? They all taste like yummy hot milk drink to me, for real. ARE MY TASTEBUDS DEAD OR WHAT AM I DOING WRONGGGG

Sil

What is the flavouring at? How much are you putting in per cup?

Cavocorax

I think you’re supposed to use small cups – like 250 ml per scoop of matcha? I’ve started dumping more scoops into mine when I pour big cups of milk. I find it sorta subtle too…

The pumpkin and the belgian chocolate I can taste fine, but the irish cream and the cheesecake? Not so much.

Ozli

OK, that’s good to know, thx. I am already using double scoops >_>

Sil

I use 1.5-2 tsp per cup of milk…and that goes up depending on the flavouring

Cavocorax

Is that 250 ml of miilk, or a cup as in 10 oz?
I think my matcha scoop is probably 1 tsp? I should measure it sometime, but I use 1.5 scoops so that’s probably close to you.

Ozli

Ohhhhh I might be underscooping, then! :-O Thanks guys!

Sil

a cup as in 250ml heh i don’t use no stinking imperial system in my house! :)

This was good & interesting! Not something I’d be likely to buy since I’m not that into chamomile… but man, it’s good with mint. I didn’t get the chocolate but it sure smelled good. Thx cavocorax! I’m glad I got to try it, because the sound of it was just TOO INTRIGUING.

This is SO INTERESTING! Very cool to have a “wake-up” mint tea. 85 degrees is a pain in the ass, but ultimately worth it.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 4 min, 15 sec
Cavocorax

Yeah, one day I’ll get a variable temp kettle and then I’ll drink more green tea because I won’t have to wait on the kettle as much. Even a $50 one would work as the temp would be close enough!

Cavocorax

This was surprisingly tasty though! I would never have found it without @laurenillo! It’s one of the few DAVIDsTEA’s she likes.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
