499 Tasting Notes
Only got a small amount of this one to try as I really wasn’t sure with the description if I would like it or not. But I am glad that Davidstea did get some straight teas in. That was a nice surprise and hopefully it means more are coming? Probably not, but I can hope.
This one I steeped up this morning but I didn’t use super hot water. I had the water sitting for a bit before I finally used it. Anyways, this one is definitely buttery and not really all that grassy like I thought it would be. I could taste the green tea, but it was so mild. It really was the butter that I tasted more than anything, which was good and weird. I thought I was just tasting the butter from my toast, but nope, that was the tea.
I only have done one steeping so far, but I think I’ll try another one before the day is out. Either way, it’s pretty darn good and I loved how light it tasted too. Hoping the second steep is just as good.
Really enjoyed this one but at the same time, I’m not sorry to see it go. It was unbelievably sweet and worked best in latte form to me. Anyways, drank what I had left in a latte that I used a bit of my Gingerbread tea to have enough tea to make the latte. Lovely combo and helped cut the sweetness of the snickerdoodle.
Either way… SIPDOWN!
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.
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.
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.
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.
