421 Tasting Notes

The first time I tried this tea I absolutely hated it. It was terrible! I took a few sips and threw it out. Today I thought I’d try it again and if I hated it again, I would just toss the bag.

Today… it’s not terrible. It’s not mind-blowing by any means, but it’s not terrible. I wouldn’t get this one again ever, but it’s not terrible… Not sure if today’s attempt did enough to make me want to keep it though. I will probably throw it out.

I did get some apple flavour, but with a name like apple crunch, I would expect some form of pastry flavour or something creamy (which, the cream is suppose to be in there) and yet I taste nothing. It’s very strange. I don’t care for this tea. So… as I write this, I have decided that I’m done with it: the tea and this note. haha

SIPDOWN!

I finished this one last week in latte form and I already miss it. I think this is my favourite tea to use in latte form. It’s so delicious. I have to get a massive bag soon. I’ll finish off some more teas first then make an order :) And hopefully the dollar will be better at that point.

Had this one yesterday at my mom-in-law’s place.

I found it to be quite… interesting. It’s definitely dark chocolate and a fruitiness to it…
Will have to review again soon. I know I thought this would make a great latte though.

I’m going to start this review by disclosing that I’m not a coffee drinker. I never have been and probably won’t be. I might get the odd ice capp from Tim’s but that’s about it.

So, anyways, my husband and I got a Keurig. I still can’t believe we got one, but we did so that when family comes over that actually do drink coffee, we can finally offer them some.

But while we were at the shop in town that sells the cups individually, we thought we’d get us a few things too, and this is one of the ones that I grabbed as it looked almost like loose leaf in the cup!

So it’s a STRONG tea. Like super strong. I was almost thrown by it. I ended up adding some milk to it to hopefully tone it down, but it didn’t really touch it too much. I did end up drinking most of it, but I think next time I would steep it up and make it into a latte. I would steam up some milk and add it afterwards and see what happens. I bet with the milk it would be amazing.

Anyways, I would get this again and see how well that works before I fully feel about it.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

I have had this one for far too long.. don’t ask. I don’t actually know how long… either way, I’m enjoying this as latte form. Because of its age, I went ahead and used the whole thing which in my estimations would be 2.5tsps.

This worked out so well. It’s nice and smooth from the coconut. And it hasn’t turned so I have to think I got it last year in one of the sample packs I got.
Anyways, 6min steep, lots of hot milk, frothed up and inhaled in only a couple of minutes.

As much as I enjoyed this one, I don’t think I would get this again. I know I wouldn’t reach for it very often, which is shown in my lack of having this one sooner. Anyways, enjoyed but not a restock item.

drank Strawberry Colada by DAVIDsTEA

Like many others here, I got this one as a sample when I made an online order with the free shipping.

Smell: Lovely strawberry flavour. It was unreal!
Taste: Fantastic strawberry flavour, but slightly tart from the hibiscus that is in there. I think I would steep it for less time next time I go for it. I do want to get a bit more and try it again. I love the strawberry flavour to it.

Made the last perfect spoon into a latte, but I think it needed a bit more tea. However, now that it has cooled a touch, it’s so good! I love this tea. It’s chocolate and coconut and a bit of a nuttiness to it. This will have to come back into my cupboard soon. But until then, goodbye friend and I’ll enjoy you again soon.

Mmm, I’ve ripped through like 75g of this and will definitely be coming back for more too.

I totally caved and got more today. I ordered online ‘cause a tea for one (the one that’s the teapot on top and the cup fits underneath it) was on sale in the web special section and I was watching for it to come back on sale. I didn’t want to pay for shipping for just that, so I got the tea too… hahaha

Good job! I’ve been tempted to get Salted Caramel bars online since I can’t find them in store, but similar problem, don’t want to have to pay for shipping.

I think I’ve decided I don’t like minty teas as lattes… I felt as though I was left wanting with this one.

Bio

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

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

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 a proud new mom of a sweet little baby boy born Feb. 3/15.
As well as “mom” to two adorable “fur babies” (I have two awesome cats). 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 and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too). White teas are rapidly becoming a favourite too. But, they must be flavoured white teas.

I don’t care for mate, green, oolongs, matcha, or puerh (although the puerh cake tea I have may convert me to a puerhs). And greens are kind of growing on me too. I’m starting to realize just how important steeping times/temperatures/amounts of tea make all the difference in the world for them!

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
