420 Tasting Notes
Happy 400th tasting note to me!
I got a small Davidstea order in the mail today. Only three teas, ones on the wishlist. I decided this would be the one to jump into as it smelt curiously like Coco Lemon Thai.
I really love this one. I love the lemon and coconut and how it’s working together. There is definitely a lovely fruitiness to it also. I am quite happy with it. I will definitely enjoy this one. And I’ll drink it up fast hopefully. Unlike the Coco Lemon Thai that my dad bought me. I loved it, but then forgot about it… and I think it’s gone punky… so sad… I’ll try it again before I chuck it… but so sad…
Anyways, this one won’t have that happen. I’ll be drinking this one fast :)
I had this one last week with my mom and totally didn’t think to log it.
I was… disappointed with this one. I found it to be so lightly flavoured that it felt like I was just drinking water. I couldn’t get much of any flavour to it… I will be trying it again before I give up on it, but even my mom agreed. I guess we’ll see. I’m going to add more leaves and see what happens.
I can’t believe I still have this one. So I made it into a latte. haha Still on my latte kick. I think this will be one of many today.
Anyways, This tea still tastes so good. I’m surprised it still have good flavour as it’s not the newest tea ever… But either way, I’m enjoying this one as a latte. It’s a little strange having a white tea as a latte, but it works. Maybe it’s ‘cause I make them nice and strong that it works, but either way, I’m glad it does.
I need to finish this one. It’s time to say goodbye.
I got more of this one before my collection dwindled like I thought I was going to. I got a fresh small bag of it… was it this year or last year? I don’t remember. Doesn’t matter.
Today I made it into a latte. Absolutely amazing. I seriously inhaled it. I was very impressed. I love making lattes at home. I have so much more variety than shops do and it’s SO much cheaper!
Made this into a latte today. I probably made it stronger than needed, but I love strong flavoured lattes. This one was so great. It had the great cookie taste I mentioned in the last tasting note, and it’s got the creaminess of the cream.
This tea is such a surprise. I love it. Now that I’m making lattes at home, I don’t think this one will last long. haha Delish!
Bought this on a whim last week.
I wasn’t even sure about the smell honestly, but how could I pass up a tea called Cookies and Cream?!
I added some milk and sugar (not much), and it made this tea such a great sweet dessert tea. I definitely got the sweetness and chocolately taste from it. But there was also a creaminess to it. I was impressed by the combo and how well the two worked together and the fact that you get both the cookie taste and the cream. Usually you don’t get both when a company says you should, but this time you definitely can. Seriously surprised and impressed.
I’m going to enjoy this one.
As a side note, I’m like dying to buy more tea, which technically I have in the last week, but I want to buy more and I’m trying with everything in me to not. I have a Steeped Tea party tonight so we’ll see how well that lasts… I HAVE to drink down some of my collection!
I have decided that I dislike this tea. Not because of anything to do with the tea itself, but I realize that I don’t like apple teas that have a black base. They are okay, but I definitely prefer when they have a different base to them. Not sure if I’m going to finish this one or just toss what’s left… maybe I"ll try mixing it with something instead.
I have been really surprised by this one. It’s so good and I absolutely love it. I didn’t think I would with it being a hibiscus tea, but for some reason it doesn’t bother me here at all. Found the berry flavour to be quite good and the hibiscus doesn’t overpower like it tends to do. Such a great tea. I’m very impressed by this one. A great blend of flavours with nothing outshining the rest. All the flavours work in harmony. I also love that it turns a lovely shade of purple. SO pretty!!
Can’t decide if I want to stock up or not.
Making this as an iced tea to finish it up. It made a really good one last time I did this, so hopefully it’ll be good again. Almost three PS for 16oz of water. Probably too much, but I’m not concerned. Steeped up in hot water until it cooled and I’m leaving the leaves in until I’m ready to drink.
Will update tomorrow once I try it.
Pumpkin Patch… Normally Pumpkin chai is the tea I go to for pumpkin flavour, but this one is pretty good. I like the pumpkin and the spices with it.
I do wish I had steeped it for less time, but such is life. I still enjoy the flavours. It’s nice to have a pumpkin tea that isn’t chai. I can see this making a lovely latte. I’ll probably try that next.
