694 Tasting Notes
First steep for first work tea of the day. Warm and smooth, with an undeniable sweetness from the rooibos (Can’t miss it!). The mint comes in nicely, and sort of with a vanilla-esque flavour, as opposed to the bold mints I know David’s Tea to use. When I’m feeling like some mint but worried about heartburn (Terrible that my favourite flavour can be so cruel to me) I can turn to this. Delicious iced or hot, with or without rum!
Can’t wait to re-steep when this cup is gone. Yum yum!
This isn’t what I wanted to drink, but I only have one left of my preferred tea, so I figured I’d give it a go. I steeped a much shorter time and threw in a bit of raw sugar to try to enhance the apple and minimize the chamomile (which now that I’ve tasted I know I don’t like). Learning experiences!! Anyway, the titch of sugar took the edge off the chamomile. I should bring in my honey from home as I prefer it to sugar, but ah well. Still a lovely tea.
Wanted a nice warm (but cooling!) mint tea this morning after arriving at work. My breakfast tea (apple) didn’t come out as nice as I’d hoped so I went for ol’ faithful. As always, this tea didn’t disappoint. I wish the water had been hotter but when you sit at reception they don’t let you toddle off to boil water, so I make do with what’s available.
Finally re-steeped this, three hours later. I was afraid that after over steeping a bit the first time that it wouldn’t produce a comparable second cup, but the smell and colour of the liquor are superb.
First sip is certainly more mild in lemon flavour than before, but still delicious. I love lemon though, in case I didn’t mention it : )
My third purchase from David’s Tea yesterday. I’ve never had oolong before so I didn’t know what I was getting in to. I love lemon and citrus in general, so this was a safe bet, but it turned out nicely. I found the flavours mixed nicely and the lemon wasn’t nearly as overpowering as one would expect from the smell.
I found it to be a really smooth tea and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to my next cup!
Had a nice cuppa this evening. The beau enjoyed some iced with rum and I used the leftover for a hot cup. I first bought this in the summer, brewed a mug and didn’t enjoe it as much as some of the others so it sat at the back of my cupboard. Now that winter’s settled in, this is a great pick me up, reminding me that summer will come again some day. Really enjoyable, especially as a mint fan!
Smells amazing…I’ve wanted this since it came out but couldn’t bring myself to cough up the price. Today I gave in. And I didn’t regret it, at all!! We let this steep for a long time, though the beau poured a cup at about five minutes and it was delicious, but a really mild fruit flavour. At a ten minute steep, the tea really hits you right off. It sort of is milky, though deliciousn and sweet, though not too sweet!!
Second infusion produced two more cups, both drank by me as the beau didn’t want them. Since I over-steeped the first batch, the second came out a little watery but I’ve finally establised that the weird taste is SLIGHTLY reminiscnet of coffee. Upping my rating as I am coming to really enjoy it as an occcasional tea. Something to put a little hair on my chest amidst my usual tisanes : )
