7472 Tasting Notes
Pulled this one out to start my day. I wanted something delicious as we managed to sleep in today. I’ve got some errands to run and no energy to do so…then it’s board games tonight and we start sitting rental dog for a couple days tomorrow as well. I like that this one has a lovely base to complement the other things going on in this brew. it always reminds me of being outside. so good.
Another one from last night. Thankfully i have a little more to give this one another try. From what i recall last night – there is a LOT of sugar in this one. You know it’s bad when the second ingredient in the list is cane sugar….followed by white chocolate. and then pink sugar mix. IE. diabetics beware. it makes me sad though because this one had the most potential for deliciousness….instead it was more sweet than tangy raspberry and the brew turns into a slightly shiny, weird watery looking thing. Not a bad tea, as i did drink it but again, i won’t need more of this beyond my 10g or whatever i picked up.
Final Count: 113 (because i picked up a couple new ones)
ugh. No one has added the new davids teas to the database…and their website doesn’t really have them either so you get what i’ve done for now haha. I picked these up yesterday as motivation to get to my step count. Sadly i pretty much drank this one without really focusing on it last night. It’s more fruit tea than green tea IMO. I quite enjoyed the pinappley, coconut, apple taste that this one had. it might actually be a decent cold brew as well, however i didn’t love it enough to think about going back to pick up more. It was refreshing and tasty but i’m good with my giant mug from last night.
i think that’s 3 for 3 on this tea. Not good. Christina saved this for me to try. it’s like…it’s flat. or something. the very very very start of the sip is chocolatey and gets your hope up, and then everything else that this tea brings is like a giant slap in the face, it’s so bad. like ick. the contradiction of that potential followed by awful disappointment is just no.
noms. GCTTB this is delicious! I don’t love green teas all the time, but there are a few out there who make me want to keep a couple in my cupboard. This is one of those. It’s fruity and sweet, with an almost nutty flavour profile in the background? almost? it’s not super vegetal but being a green tea, there’s some of that. mostly though, it’s sweet and delicious.
Delicious cup of this today. I am enjoying having some of my older teas today since i don’t really have the focus today for puerh. At least this way i’m exploring some of my older teas while also getting through some of my samples. I am starting to get through some of my straight teas as well, so i pulled a new one to try next week from me "recently purchased but not yet open box. Still have a ways to go to get to my Feb goal though. Today this cup is just smooth and old. i can’t really do it justice today but i’m super glad i was able to have a cup during some downtime at work so i could just sit with it.
oooh. so this one? kinda like a spicy oolong. No chocolate or real sweetness here, just a deecnt tea base that’s spicey…and i can pick out the oolong notes. I can live without tiny marshmallows but where is my chocolate? I’ll have to add some cacao nibs or shells to this and see if that works better for me.
special tea this morning. My other half splurged on this tea when we went to paris for me. I ADORE the white tea (yes white tea…) in this line and so he wanted to pick that one up along with the black tea for me to try. I don’t pull this one out of the cupboard often – i probably should more often, but when i do, it’s delicious. malty, spicy, fruity…just delicious.
