136 Tasting Notes
Pulled this out of the back of my cupboard before I send it out for a swap. I think this has lost it’s flavour over time. I remember it being really quite fruity, but I didn’t like the aftertaste it left. Tonight it tastes like water, and actually quite like the forever nuts that was left in my steeper overnight the night before. I am getting a little bit of the fruitiness in the aftertaste, but very faint, and I’m really searching for it. If I send this off I might throw this one out and go buy some new stuff because I feel bad swapping this knowing that it doesn’t have any flavour left.
I’m glad I only got a sample size of this as I didn’t like it. It smells great, like fuzzy peaches, but when I tasted it, it was quite bitter tasting. I added some skim milk and stevia and that made it worse, the candy-like peach flavour did not work well with the milk. I can see this being really goo diced though, so that is what I’m going to do with my remaining sample.
Oops! I noticed that I wrote a review for H&S Midsommer’s Peach tea under this one. I don’t know how that happened because I specifically remember being on the peach tea’s page, weird. So if anyone read my review talking about a candy peach flavour, that was an accident! Well I guess I’ll review this one now that I am here.
I stole this out of the Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box – Round one. I love genmaicha and this smelled quite similar, , but without the green tea. It was really good, but a little boring to me. I don’t think it is something I would drink on it’s own anymore, so I added this to my decaf sencha and I really like it that way. Similar to genmaicha, but a stronger toasty flavour.
I’ve been trying to swap out a lot of my teas including this one. This was the tea that got me into loose leaf tea. I loved it so much when I had a sample in store that I immediately bought a 100g tin. Unfortunately, after a few more cups and trying a lot more of David’s blends, this tea lost its lustre.
I was packaging this up last night to include in a swap and it just smelled so good that I had to steal a cup. It was as good as the first day I tried it, but I know that feeling won’t last long so I will refrain from restocking, at least for a while. Sometimes you just need a good, sometimes long, break from some old favourites.
This was my favourite of David’s winter teas. I really wanted to order the 250g bag online, but I refuse to order David’s online unless I can spend the $50 to get the free shipping and I didn’t see anything else that I wanted. This is a lot like read my lips, but without the chocolate, so it is not nearly as sweet. It’s just creamy minty goodness.
I purchased a sample size of this tea as I was unsure if I would like it. I am not the biggest fan of herbals but am always on the lookout for a good one that I can enjoy in the evenings. This was really good. I love blueberry and this tasted like a tart wild blueberry. I would definitely order this again if I make another Teavivre order.
I am on a diet that only allows me to have one caffeinated drink per day, so I ordered a bunch of decaf teas from H&S. I bought this so I could mix it with their roasted buckwheat tea to make a makeshift decaf genmaicha. It’s not bad at all! You can definitely taste the wheat in this, but it still has that toasty, seaweed flavour. This will definitely work as a good decaf substitute for the regular version.
Mmmmm, this smells so good in the bag. VERY sweet. It also tastes very sweet and makes me worry there might be some form of sugar hiding in there because I’m on a diet and don’t want to have sugar. Luckily I only got a sample of this and won’t be able to drink it anymore. I liked this better than DAVID’s milk oolong, but only because it is sweeter. I fyou don’t like sweet teas, I would stay away from this one.
I think this is one of the worst teas I’ve had. But I know that it is because of me and not the tea because I have sent this off to other people and they have enjoyed it. I realized I don’t like honeybush, at all, and I don’t like Frank’s cinnamon flavour, though everyone else seems to love it. So I won’t rate this tea because I don’t think it deserves the low rating I would give it.
I love banana teas and was so excited for this because of how good the reviews are, but I know those reviews are from previous batches of this tea and I was running the risk of it not tasting the same as those batches everyone raved about. I was right, this tea fell completely flat. There is no flavour at all. I get just a slight hint of banana and maybe nut, but it’s hard to tell. I like my banana to slap me in the face. Trying to swap out this one.
