487 Tasting Notes


Just a quick note to say, I dumped what I had left of this one as I knew I wouldn’t be drinking it anytime soon. Saigon is so much better and Davidstea better never discontinue it.
That is all.


I hate this one, too :( too much cinnamon. blech

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA

The apple flavour of this one is starting to fade slightly, but that’s okay. It’s still a lovely tea with a nice green tea base and a sweet apple flavour. This tea is always so good when it’s fresh. I Hope they bring it back soon.

Anyways, my mind isn’t on this tea all that much… I can’t go into details, but by the end of the week my husband and I have to make a pretty big decision and we are struggling to know what to do. I think we are both leaning towards the same decision, which is great that we’re united that way, but it’s both exciting and scarey if it happens. I’m just hoping me make the right decision…

So, on that note, this tea is lovely. It’s a bit stronger than I would normally have liked, but I will still enjoy it and I’m thankful for it this morning.

drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA

I think I probably overleafed this one. I got quite a bit of bitterness from this one, and I believe it’s because I over did it. The colour of this one is very dark compared to what I would expect it to be.

But even still it’s got a great apple flavour. I need to figure out how much tea is good for my tea for one teapot from Davidstea. I always over leaf. Maybe just one perfect teaspoon? I dunno.

drank White Cucumber by Adagio Teas

Not sure if it’s ‘cause I over did it with tea leaves or if I steeped too long, but this tea isn’t what I was expecting. I’m not really getting the cucumber flavour at all.

Anyways, I will try again. I think I would use a bit less leaves and steep for maybe only 2 or 2.5minutes. We’ll see.

drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA

This tea is strange. It’s got a lovely fruitiness to it with what tastes like pineapple and something else too… papaya? It’s so smooth and lovely. Then it has the mintiness to it that you don’t really expect with a fruity tea, but somehow it all works together so well and it tastes really good. I like the refreshing mint taste.
And with my allergies in which a angry state and my lack of sleep ’cause I have a lot on my mind right now, this tea is really soothing me.

I can’t believe I still have this one. I think I need to toss what’s left. My goodness. Three years later?

Anyways, I am trying it as a latte today and it’s not too terrible, but fruity teas in a latte form are just weird. So I think I’ll toss whatever is left and try a different tea in latte form.

drank Masala Chai by Adagio Teas

A very lovely chai. It really has a kick to it, which is what I love in chai teas. I want them to have a kick.

I’m getting the cinnamon and ginger for sure. I don’t really know what Cardamon tastes like… but either way, this tea is very delicious.

Anyways, I’m going to use the last bit of my sample to make a latte with. I know this would be absolutely dynamite in latte form.

EDIT: I just reread my tasting note on this one from a year ago. I am amazed at how much my feelings towards this one have changed. I really am enjoying it a lot more this time around it seems. I do agree with my note from last year that Saigon chai is better, but this one is also nice.

drank Cranberry by Adagio Teas
487 tasting notes

I’m not too sure how I feel about this one. It’s got a slight bit of… bitterness? maybe not… yeah maybe… I don’t know.

I am getting a bit of cranberry though. I am starting to realize that I do like cranberries, but I’m not sure if I like cranberries in tea. Either way, it’s an ok tea, but I wouldn’t refill it.

Not sure what I just did but I lost my tasting note… let’s try this again.

My aunt gave me the last two tsps of this one that I steeped up into about 16oz of water.

I get the nice roasted taste to it and I definitely get a great chai flavour to it too but I don’t really notice the apricot or even just a fruitiness to it. But I do like this tea. I probably wouldn’t get it again, but I did enjoy this cup a lot.

Updated Sept. 22/15
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’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. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
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).

I don’t care for mate, green, 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
