drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
534 tasting notes

Wow, this is sweet, REAL sweet, and I like sweet, but this may be way too sweet for even me! As warned by another reviewer and the fact that the ingredients list includes rock sugar, I didn’t sweeten, but added a splash of almond milk, and it’s really freaking sweet! Usually that’s a good thing, but I think I would have preferred to be able to sweeten it to my liking. The sweetness kind of takes away the flavors that you expect from the delicious smell, which is a tragedy.

I think DavidsTea needs to stay away from the rock sugar. Glad I only bought an ounce of this one. It could have been so much better! So bummed!

Soooooo sweet. :/
I can only imagine how delicious it could have been if they’d let us decide for ourselves how much sugar it needed (if any)

Ya, no kidding! My coworker said hers wasn’t too sweet, so maybe the portion of leaf she used had less sugar in it? IDK.

Or maybe she has more of a sweet tooth?

Maybe, but it’s hard to beat my sweet tooth! Ha!

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

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! :)
