420 Tasting Notes
I’ve had this tea for a lot longer than I thought. I’ve probably had it like two years now! It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long since I first heard about and fell in love with Davidstea! When my friend introduced me to Davidstea, I really didn’t know what to expect! With flavours such as Movie night and Buttered Rum being my first couple of picks, I knew that it was going to be a fun journey. Even now coming to love the more ‘normal’ of Davidstea’s teas, has been fantastic!
Anyway, I’m a huge fan of Davids. I love the quality and the taste, I love the flavours and the customer service… it’s just a fun company.
As a side note, I’m not an employee of Davidstea, nor am I endorsed by them in anyway if that was ever a question. I just LOVE their teas! They’re so much fun and so delicious!
Anyway, I’m revisiting this one as i’ve had it a long time now and I’m starting to try to finish up some of the ones I’ve had a long time or ones that I haven’t had in a long time.
It’s just as amazing as I remember it being. I’m enjoying it so much! I need to make some iced tea out of this, for real! So yummy.
My husband has been drinking this one like water! Every time I turn around he’s making an iced tea of this one. It’s amazing. I absolutely love it too. He’s given me tastes of it as he’s made it and it always turns out delicious. I don’t think I’ve actually tried this one hot yet! haha
So far this summer 350g of this one has been bought by my husband and me. :)
I’m really not sure what to think of this one on its own. I feel like it’s okay, but not fantastic. I dunno. I added milk, no sugar to this one, which made it nice.
I didn’t like the slick on this one. It seemed really bad compared to what I’m use to. I think I’d be up to trying this one in a paper filter and seeing if that helps lessen the slick.
Anyway, I think I would add this one to another one to finish it. I’d be up to mixing it with a plain black tea. It would add to the base and lessen the sweetness.
Delicious! I added too much sugar, but I am enjoying it. I’m starting to think I like this one best really hot. It’s starting to cool and I think the hibiscus is coming out a bit more than I would have liked, but it still really good.
My hunny has saved some to make an iced tea with it tomorrow. It’s chilling in the fridge right now. I hope he enjoys it too.
I didn’t make this one strong enough today. I should have added more leaf to it.
This is one of the ones that I got but didn’t really drink too much or really find that I was drawn to. I’m hoping I like it more as time goes on. It’s been in the cupboard for a bit now, so I’ll have to starting mixing and using it up soon.
I do like how chocolatey it is though. Mmmmmmm chocolate.
I tried this one on the advice of one of the customer service folks at Davidstea. I thought I might as well.
She recommended a 45sec steep for the first one. I figured that would be far too short. How could you get enough flavour out of it for it to be enough? But I followed her recommendations and I’m glad I did. It ended up being fantastic. It’s strong but not bitter and it was quite nice too. I enjoyed it a lot. I will have to do another few steepings to tell you more about the flavours I get from it. But otherwise, quite nice indeed!
I haven’t had this one in ages! I’ve been trying so hard to hold onto it and not drink it all up right away that I haven’t had it in over a year and I’m wondering now why I did that?!
This tea is so nice. I think mine isn’t as strong as it was before, but it’s still lovely and still delicious!
I think it’s just that I find a tea that I love and I don’t want to have to get use to not having it in my cupboard. So many times I’ll find a tea that I love but it’s only seasonal. Then, when it’s all gone… it really makes me sad.
I always end up liking the teas that don’t stick around… I believe this one is permanent, but I’m not too sure. Teavana is harder for me to get to though, so I don’t usually get their teas… plus this is one of two that I actually like.
