537 Tasting Notes

Got this one back in December right before baby #2 made his early entrance into the world.
The first time I had it, I didn’t care for it at all. I’m so use to Davidstea’s matchas that have the sugar in them, that this one really surprised me when it wasn’t sweet. So, today I had a thought… why not mix it with a davidstea one and see what happens!
I put one matcha spoon of this one and one of Peach matcha from davidstea. And it was really good! The pineapple was the leading flavour. I didn’t really get much peach, but the sweetness of the davidstea peach matcha did come through. So, that made me enjoy this one a lot. And I really liked that it wasn’t overly sweet like I sometimes find the davidstea flavoured ones to be. I would absolutely do this mix again. I might even mix this one with the vanilla one next to see how it turns out. Maybe even add a bit more of the davidstea one and see if it can shine a bit more.
Maybe I’m crazy, but there seems to be a few pineapple pieces that showed up? Or did I just not whisk it enough? I didn’t like that part at all. I took most of them out. I don’t like to eat my matcha. But yeah I would get this one again.And I bet it would be good in orange juice.

drank Mint Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

This one is minty and sweet, but not too grassy which is nice. I’ve had my small amount for quite a while so I’m trying to use it up, but I definitely don’t grab for it very often. I much prefer the vanilla and the fruity ones that they’ve had. I really hope strawberry makes a comeback because YUM!

Meant to review this one there other day, so this is going off of memory. I made this as a latte with my hazelnut agave and it was pretty good. It was a bit strong and a bit too sweet as I went a bit nuts on the sweetener, but whatever. I did enjoy it. I’m not sure if I Would get this one again or not…

drank Chance Combinations by Custom

So, I combined Wild Cherry and Strawberry Kiwi from Citizen Tea as I only had one spoonful of each and I knew that I wouldn’t drink these hot.

I’m finding the cherry is definitely overtaking the strawberry. I’m getting little bit of strawberry but not a whole lot… which is okay I guess… probably wouldn’t combine these again…

I quite enjoyed this one! I like the mix of chocolate and hazelnut. I have a hazelnut agave here at home, so I would probably add it to the tea and make the nuttiness come out more. Also, I’m planning on trying this one as a latte next ’cause I know it would be delicious! Yummmm!

I didn’t find it all that hazelnutty, not as much as I’d hoped for anyhow. I think it’d do well as a latte with some kind of nut milk (all I have is almond but it might do!)

that sounds good!

drank Hard Candy by DAVIDsTEA

This one is so much better when it’s fresh. My sample amount that I had left wasn’t fresh and I could tell. The flavours weren’t very good anymore. I was very disappointed with the iced tea I made last night as it didn’t really have any good flavour… I ended up tossing what was left of my sample….
Another tea that I shouldn’t have hoarded. I think with this one I just kind of forgot I even had it, so it sat around and wasn’t enjoyed… It’s too bad.

I’ll keep that in mind – I think I still have a packet left over from the summer.

TheKesser

Yeah it might have just been my sample, but I was pretty disappointed by this one..

drank Hot Tropic by DAVIDsTEA

I threw the rest of what I had into my steeper and made it an extra strong iced tea… but I think time has really effected this one as it didn’t taste all that great. I ended up tossing what I had made. Something just seemed off….
Stop hoarding tea! A lot of it can’t handle it! haha

I never thought I’d like this one, but it is so good! I love this one iced. For some reason, the lemon and mint work so well. I love the lemony part of this one. Anyways, haven’t tried this one hot yet, but iced is so delicious.

drank Strawberry Kiwi by CitizenTea

Very nice strawberry flavour to this, but it does have a slight hint of floral and a bit of tartness from the hibiscus. If it weren’t for the hibiscus I think I would have been a bit more in love with this one. Oh well… It’s not for me, but so be it…

drank Wild Cherry by CitizenTea

Wow does this ever taste like the Teaopia blend! I use to drink this one hot, but today I thought I’d do it cold.

It’s pretty good. I probably could have let it steep a bit longer than the 5 minutes I did, but that’s okay. This one has a nice fruitiness to it, but it also has some floral from the rosehips. Because of that floral, I’m not sure if I’d get this one again. But it was nice to try this blend.

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
