4026 Tasting Notes
Thanks to kittenna for sharing some of this. The dry smell of this tea is pretty spot on to how i remember rainbow sherbet. However, after brewing it, it tastes more like a swampy mixture of randomw fruity citrusy flavours. Not something i’m a fan of, and even the addition of s bit of sugar didn’t help much. While i’m glad to have tried it, that’s as far as i need to go with this.
Sip down! Thank you to kittenna for this one. So I’m really enjoying the pear flavour in this one. I also really like the way that it smells. What I don’t seem to get out of this is anything remotely caramel. And, if i concentrate too hard on the taste, that weirdly rooibos taste comes to the forefront of things and ruins the good thing that I almost had going with this tea. Hmmm… Too bad. Just to have the chance to have this, but still not my perfect pear tea.
Sipdown! The last little bit of this is going out in a swap! I’m not entirely sure how different this is from lime chiffon. I think I prefer more of the lime chiffon because its a bit more tart than this one. Ill need to do a taste test between the lime and the lemon chiffon but I think I lean slightly more towards the lemon chiffon. What I like most about these is that the chiffons from della terra all steep well forever and you never get that rooibos taste.
Thank you Raritea! SIPDOWN!
Haha Raritea graciously offered up a sample of this one for me to try. I figure she’s doing well in single handedly trying to get me to try the entire David’s tea menu. To be fair she DID get me to buy 100g of lime gelato!
This tea? It’s not half bad. It REALLY smells like champagne in dry form, but luckily that goes away when you drink it. Not that I have issues with champagne, and this IS bubbly tea, but it was a little weird smelling.
In liquid form this is much more a peach kind of tea with floral notes that are just slightly off putting. Not really my cup of tea. However! I apprecaite getting to knock another David’s tea off my list!
Took this out and about with me today. Even on the weekend I can’t seem to get away from work issues! Since it wasn’t a holiday in the US we for sure had system issues AGAIN and i was for sure sitting in a craft show taking care of system problems. So glad i had some tea with me. Picked this up recently as it’s not a bad little tea to get occasionally from della terra. Not one i need stocked ALL the time but it’s a decent one to cycle through occasionally.
Sipdown! Wootwoot! I figured that I needed to finish the last cup of this or I’d continue to hold on to it forever, not wanting to finish it. But this weekend? It’s all about those one or two cup samples! That and attempting to try all the remaining swap teas I’ve recently picked up along with tea orders. Mostly so that I can a) get my cupboard down to a more manageable size and b) figure out if there are any teas I need to swap out….52 teas I’m looking at you!
Really having a good time with this blend. It’s very much an every day black tea for me. Th kind of tea that I could have every morning and not get bored of, but not be like OH MY GOD! YES! yES! :)
Thanks to hesper june for this one, its been great!
Sipdown! Thank you ysaurella for this one! I have really enjoyed getting to sample this one. It’s not my favourite of the batch that she sent my way but it is for sure one of my top picks from her. The cherry notes trailing in the background of the sip are what makes it for me. It’s not an overly fruity tea at first sip and then bam! Hello cherry almond! :)
Here’s to a great Good Friday! Full of tea and being out in the sun….soonish ;)
SIPDOWN! Thank you again ysaurella for this one. I think the contrast between this and the smokey taste i’m also drinking makes this tea tastes even lovelier this morning. The sweetness in this one makes the spiciness pop just a little more this morning and blends into a delicious cup for this morning.
I figured i’d try some of the new teas that I recently picked up to figure out if i needed to find good homes for them or if i wanted to keep them around to love and squeeze and call them george.
I’m going to have to agree with Kittenna on this one in that there is really no maple flavouring from this. It’s a toned down smokey tea with a small bit of slightly sweet but yet not kind of thing happening. It’s not a BAD tea, but i was hoping for more of a maple taste from it. I think this one will be a good one for cooking and even for the occasional cup, though i might toss some maple syrup in there just to see how that tastes…
