138 Tasting Notes
Strange, I think this batch was stale, but it kind of tasted like what coconut grove tastes like… not a fan.
I’m not gonna lie.. I haven’t been feeling david’s lately… with all the mango teas for spring and summer that i couldn’t have, and some less than stellar blends that I could have, and the major disappearances of some of my favorites! … I have liked some of the new teas, but haven’t really LOVED them (not enough that i’ll really, really, miss them when they disappear)…. but THIS! on first smell, i thought it was going to be really fake currant tasting, and gross.. but on first sip.. i fell in love! .. the currant flavour is really strong, and true to currant taste.. and it changes into a creamy vanillaish taste… so simple, so beautiful :) i had it hot.. i’m gonna try it iced tommorow.
I am normally very picky about my ginger blends. I find there is a very fine line between being delicious, and being obnoxious… delicious- davids strawberry ginger, tealish ginger sparkle.. obnoxious, sweet ginger heat from davids…. this one is more on the delicious side. The creaminess of the coconut tames the ginger.. and the red rooibos gives it a nice smooth finish.. i quite enjoyed it… i didn`t get much of the apple, or cardamom notes on this steep though!
this one is really nice.. kind of reminds me of fuzzy peach candies! .. a great sleepytime blend!
THIS! smells so good, and brews up even better! it reminds me of oats and berries but so much better.. definitely a nice switch from regular genmaicha :)
hmm this one is strange, at first smell, i was reminded of main squeeze by davids tea… but it tastes so much better than that!… It kind of tasted like bubble gum to me! I really enjoyed this honeybush!
this is a really neat blend. I’ve never tasted something quite like it! … I could really taste the cinnamon, but it wasn’t overpowering, with lots of bite like some cinnamon teas.. I definitely appreciate it! thanks JustJames for the chance to try this!
mmmm i love the spicyness of this one, and how its calmed down a lot by the vanilla, and the hibiscus. Its a nice blend to bring in fall because I like it both iced and hot (prefer it hot though). Since I can’t have caffeine right now, its a nice substitute for my evening tea.. I only had a small bag of it because it happened to be on sale when i was in store, I will definitely be re-stocking this one :)
