705 Tasting Notes
Got the hottest water my office can offer. I wish I had the time to boil water here, but as the receptionist it just isn’t viable. I continue to love this tea – it starts out by enticing you with a delicious black currant aroma, but then tricks you with it’s dull brown liquor. Expectations rise once again with the first sip, and the tea remains satisfying to the end. Yum yum!
I continue to be a little amazed at how high the reviews are for this tea. That said, it’s certainly a nice tea but it seems that no matter what I do it just doesn’t steep up that strong. Extra teaspoons, hotter water, more steep time – Nothing really brings it to the level I would expect.
Again, it remains a very yummy tea but I think it will always be on my list of disappointments from David’s Tea – the taste just isn’t really there.
I really like this tea. I honestly forget on a regular basis how soothing and tasty this can be. I’ve never noticed any of the proferred side effects, but it’s just so nice. It’s not that it’s forgettable, it’s just that I don’t have a lot of call for soothing tea on a regular basis. Or at least not the time to enjoy it. Of all my David’s Teas I find this to be the most appley, and just YUM!
There’s a point in the steep where this goes from nice and mild to tart and over-bearing. Somewhere in the 3 minute range, I find. Still not an exceptional tea, but certainly passable. Won’t buy again, what with all the delicious loose tea to be had, but I would snag one off a freebie tray for sure : )
I bought this at the Market. I have no description for it, no ingredient list, and no link to the website. The shop is based in Mahone Bay, NS and they do have a price list online which contains this tea, but that’s what I got.
All that said, it’s delicious! Clearly a black tea, with a lovely blueberry aroma. The flavour of blueberry does not come out as strongly as it smells, but it’s nice – mild, but still there. Perfectly lovely, though kind of forgettable. I got two other teas from this company which also are sort of forgettable. Shame, considering that it’s a local tea company and it would be nice to support some Nova Scotians.
