drank Toasted Walnut by DAVIDsTEA
607 tasting notes

I still am not a fan of green tea, except when I’m eating sushi, but I’m really trying to like it! I know some of you would be shocked. How can I not like green? I’ve noticed a lot of folks on here don’t like rooibos though, and I do now, even though I thought years ago that I never would. So I guess tastes can change. In hopes of learning to like green tea, I bought some of this one. It smells like caramel! I think it’s the brittle pieces in it. Steeped, it tasted a lot less sweet, although it still smelled really sweet. Weird. It tasted a lot like walnuts, which was good, but I wish, it was as sweet to taste as it smells. I’m planning to try it with honey next time and see how that goes.

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
